Extremely easy to find if it is your first time on Sanibel Island. Take the main entry road until it ends and then just to the left a bit. No matter what area you stay at here, you get some type of water view. Has it's own private entry to the beach. The suites are spacious and clean and the... More

These units are loaded with every amenity, including full kitchens and all utensils. The highlights are: beautifully manicured gardens, easy access to the beach and the channel, spotless rooms, free beach chairs, umbrellas and kayaks, warm and helpful staff, two pools to choose from. What a great stay!

We have stayed at the Sanibel Moorings twice. Our first visit was in the botanical section and our most recent was Oceanside. Both units were great. They are comfortably situated, clean and pleasantly decorated. We are a family of four and enjoy the coziness of the condos. The units can sleep 6 comfortably if one doesn't mind sleeping on a...

Sanibel Moorings is a botanical dream and the views are spectacular. The room was roomy and quiet. They provide beach chairs, umbrellas and buckets so you can leave some of your stuff at home. They have free dvd's to checkout as well as free use of kayaks for navigating the canals.

Staying at Sanibel Moorings was like a dream! Wonderful beach access, choice of pools, available BBQs and beautiful accommodations. We had a 2-bedroom unit and it was very comfortable for 4 adults and 2 children. Grounds were top-notch: gardens were lovely, and beach was well-kept. Lots of beach furniture/umbrellas available that was good quality. The Thursday Continental breakfast was very... More

This was our fourth time staying on Sanibel for Spring Break, and our first at Sanibel Moorings. This was our favorite rental to date. The unit was updated and spotless, the grounds are a lush tropical maze of beautiful plants and flowers, and the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Lots to do for everyone -- beach, pool, fishing, kayaking,... More

Excellent accommodations, beautiful grounds, incredible beaches, awesome staff, convenient location and best of all-EVERYONE loved our vacation there, from my very picky 12 year-old daughter, to my 'always-fishing' 15 year-old son, even with my worldly, college-boy 20 year-old son. They all had a GREAT time. We would HIGHLY recommend this resort.

Fantastic piece of paradise. Beautiful gardens, gorgeous pools, easy access to canals to kayak, beach front access with lounge chairs,gorgeous apartment and lovely staff. I couldn't fault this place, other then the slow internet. However, as you are holidays this should not be a big issue. We had an amazing time exploring the island from Sanibel Moorings and will be... More

We have stayed at the Moorings for over 20 years and this resort has such nice people - staff AND guests, beautiful lush gardens, good amenities and is on the quieter side of the island. There are 1, 2 and a few 3 bedroom units.

My wife and I stayed in February for a week and loved it . The staff was great. The grounds were impeccable . The beach was just a short walk and chairs are provided . Just a short drive to many great restaurants . We wish we booked for two weeks .Will be returning next year .
