This was my first visit to Sanibel. Casa Ybel was clean, well kept. The rooms very spacious and comfortable. Loved the bathroom set up with two sinks and shower. Perfect for a family of 5 getting dressed. Our favorite hands down was the staff at Coconuts!! Every single one of the guys were awesome!!!

Recently returned from another wonderful week at Casa Ybel. We always choose a one BR that has a pull out sofa in the living area. Be sure to request one on the lowest level. Those units have private steps from the screened in porch right out to the beach. Also, the one BRs include daily housekeeping which is wonderful. Granite... More

We had a one bedroom that was very spacious. Everything was clean and in good order. Loved sitting out on our screened balcony, catching those breezes off the Gulf. Located on West Coast Drive which is close to the restaurants and shops along Periwinkle. The 2 bedrooms are on the 1st floor, but are not at ground level so you... More

I've stayed at Casa Ybel for years and every year it's a great experience. Sanibel is a very isolated island and there isn't much to do, esp at night, but Casa Ybel is great because every suite is like an apartment. There is a full kitchen with everything you need, a large bathroom, a large bedroom and everything else you... More

We stayed for a week before Christmas in a one bedroom condo. Our unit was very comfortable with a screened patio from which we enjoyed a very nice view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. This was our fourth stay at Casa Ybel and we have found it consistently comfortable with well equipped kitchen. It has a very nice... More

My family stayed for several days at Casa Ybel and loved it! Beach chairs and umbrellas were easy to rent, the beach was beautiful and not crowded, and the resort was lovely. We stayed in a one bedroom condo and enjoyed the beach view and the ability to run in and out of our room when we needed something. The... More

Spent a weekend to celebrate a birthday. Great room on the Gulf. Go anywhere on the island in 20 minutes by bicycle. Dinner at the Ybel Resort restaurant was simply outstanding. Chris at the Coconut Pool Bar should get award as the most enthusiastic and cheery bartender on the gulf coast of Florida. Made having a beer totally enjoyable. Out... More

Long weekend over Memorial Day was a pleasure at Casa Ybel. The view of the gulf from our unit was so beautiful. The unit was tastefully furnished, and the patio furniture was nicer than that at so many beach hotels and resorts in Florida.
