As heavily invested in timeshare, we have a certain expectation of a "GOLD" rated resort. We have moved on to the next place on our vacation which is a Holiday Inn Resort. Holiday Inn Resort beats this place hands down. All we can say is Casa Ybel has a lot to learn. It could have a housekeeping staff that checks... More

Casa ybel has been special to my family for 20 years and we all love this place. being world travelers...We have stayed in other places and have owned a home here on the island so we know what we are talking about. This is the best place on Sanibel. Reminder: Sanibel is very casual. If you are looking for a... More

I enjoyed this property. It is not luxury accommodations, but it is in such a beautiful location, directly in the beach, you do not care. A couple of days among the amazing sea shells, grilled grouper sandwiches at the pool bar, and sitting under an umbrella watching the waves is wonderful. The highlight was a Thai massage and facial at... More

Beautifully appointed, luxurious beds, complete kitchen made for a wonderful beginning to our resort stay, but the VIEW is incredible! We were steps from the Gulf with an unobstructed glorious scene that changes morning to night. Yes, we did rent chairs for the beach but we actually enjoyed our 2nd floor, 1 bedroom king condo best. Coconuts staff are friendly... More

We just spent three days in Casa Ybel--and it was one of the worst resorts I've stayed at. Quick summary: Looks pretty on the outside, but beware of the shabby interior. The pros: Nice grounds, nice location. Pool area is quite pleasant. The cons: Yucky interiors. Dreadful green carpeting, topped with furniture in colors (green that clashed with carpet) and... More

We had a wonderful time on Sanibel enjoying the sunsets, shells, dolphins, Ding Darling, and riding bikes around the island. We do like the location of Casa Ybel as you can see the sunset which is not possible from many other resorts on the east end.We had one of the worst units overlooking the pool and hot tub, and over...

This property is comprised of timeshares. We were lucky enough to stay a week with someone else's points. The unit was beautiful. We faced the Gulf and the view was magnificent. The walks on the beach were memorable to say the least. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the area. Since it was December, the holiday decorations were... More

We live nearby on pine island and decided to drive to Sanibel for the day and have lunch at casa ybel at coconuts pool bar. Chris was our waiter and came promptly to the table when we sat down. Took our drink order then lunch order. Our food was cooked outside on grill and was very good. I had requested... More

The grounds are magnificent and we just got back from a lovely week in Sanibel. The pool at Casa YBel is big and is warm, the grounds are meticulously kept, and our 1 BR in the hotel section was lovely. We are a family of 4 and it was perfect. My main observation is that it is more of a... More
