Stopped by Casa Ybel to get information on their villas. Went to look at the pool area and beach. Passed Coconuts and it was so lively we decided to sit a spell and have a drink. Jeremy greeted us warmly with a big smile. I got the special drink of the day a sea breeze and it was delicious. Husband... More

The location directly on the beach is perfect- the weather brings a different vibe to the beach every day- it is great to explore an collect the amazing shells on the beach here. Both restaurants are good, the pool is inviting, and there is really no reason to leave the resort! The accommodations all have kitchens and screened porches, making... More

I have been going on and off for a VERY long time. The units are essentially condos and are very well kept. If you are expecting people to be waiting on you hand and foot this isn't the place for you. The pool is very nice however the drinks/food at the pool side bar are expensive. Consider buying your drinks... More

Just back from a 5 night stay. Room looked recently re-done, comfortable furniture and spotless. The kitchenette came fully equipped and the ice maker in the fridge cranked. Very good bed and shower. Unobstructed beach view and a comfortably equipped screened in porch. Bartenders at Coconuts were great and the food served from the grill there was outstanding....especially the wings... More

I hate to write a review because that means more people will visit. We own two weeks here and have for 40 years. The rooms were all redone after the hurricane and aren't the quality as before but still a great place. Large pool and right on the beach. Thistle Lodge and Coconuts restaurants on site. Tennis courts, shuffle board,... More

Impeccable beachfront resort. Incredible service and first class service. Enjoyed a friends beach wedding and no she'll was left unturned. Rooms are very comfortable and beds were heaven. There are many restaurants throughout Sanibel, but you will have everything you need here

My husband and I were married at Casa Ybel in June and stayed at the resort a few days after. The whole experience was a dream. The suites are incredibly roomy and each one has a perfect view of the beach. There is a mini kitchen in the room, so it was nice to be able to fix our own... More

In my opinion, everything about Casa Ybel is perfect for an extended stay on the beach. All suites face the Gulf, have full kitchenettes, terrace seating and are in very close proximity to the beach. Call downstairs and they'll set up chairs and umbrella for you. Very convenient. Two on-site restaurants: Thistle Lodge for fancy dining (complete with player piano)... More

The hotel was nice the first day. The lunch was good, but the wrong meal was brought to me. The room and the beds were not made and cleaned until 4pm. (ONLY BECAUSE We CALLED!) Later there was a roach in the room and there was not ANY bug spray in the hotel. We did not enjoy our stay and... More

The place is over rated. The staff is VERY unfriendly. I asked for towels at the pool and the guys had the worse attitude. During sunset they throw you out of your lounge chairs because it's time for pick up, our room was cleaned at 5 pm and then we come back from dinner to find palmetto roaches! At $530.00... More
