Loved our condo #542. It was gulf view although the only view was from the master bedroom balcony. Would have been nicer to have off the main balcony where we all tended to congregate more. Our 21-25 year old boys loved having the canoes to go fish on the canal. They spent a lot of the days fishing which was... More

Very happy with our 2 bedroom place and the overall facilities. Convenient beach access and we also used the pool and tennis courts. Terrific landscaping of the resort. The Moorings is in a convenient location on Sanibel Island. Also had to do a little business while down here and appreciated having the conference room available. Would definitely stay here again.

This is not my first trip to the Moorings -- nor probably my last. Start with the superior garden setting, overseen by the head gardener, Anita, in a tradition going back more than 40 years. (Don't miss her Thursday morning tour of the gardens!!!) The staff is always gracious and quickly responsive to even the simplest requests. Each rental condo... More

This was our second visit to Sanibel Moorings, as we loved our first visit. The grounds and amenities of this facility are top notch! Associates are very professional and always happy to assist. We chose a ground floor unit for convenience with our dogs, and the unit was nicely decorated, wonderfully stocked kitchen and very comfortable bed! BUT, we could... More

We stayed for a week at Sanibel Moorings, a last minute decision. The unit had few reviews but we took a chance. The photos were accurate in portraying a nicely furnished, up to date accommodation. We were on the canal side, and indeed it was a short walk to the beach. There were sufficient beach chairs and umbrellas, both at... More

We stayed here for the first time. Now it's our first choice for future Sanibel Island visits. The condos are typically nice units. What sets this apart is the beautiful botanical garden with its weekly gardener led tour; the pleasant helpful people at the fully staffed front desk; and a location that makes for easy access on and off the...

Stayed in condo 1312 for four weeks. Wonderful! Beautiful condo and facility. Going back next year. Our favorite place to go. Have been going there since mid eighties. Plenty of walking paths and biking areas. So much to do on the island. Nice beach with shelling.

Well maintained facility with beautiful gardens close to the beach. However, be aware that some of the "courtyard" rooms overlook a busy, noisy, road (same price as other units). This was not disclosed at booking. Also, surprised that there was no daily housekeeping (only a linen/towel exchange at central location during limited hours). Needed to dump own trash and carry...

We spent a long weekend at Sanibel Moorings recently and had a great time. The location was outstanding and the rooms were clean with all the conveniences. 3 days were not enough, next time we'll stay for a week!

Our holiday at Sanibel Moorings was fantastic. We stayed in one of the units canal side near the pool. The walk to the beach was 5 minutes. The walk to the pool - 2 minutes.
