By far, this is Sanibel’s premier resort - from the facilities, to the grounds, and most importantly to the friendly, accommodating employees. The grounds are beautiful. The guest suites are spacious, well-appointed and immaculate. There is a wide range of food selection – from an afternoon sandwich at the pool to upscale dining in their restaurant. Couple all of this... More

Excellent resort steps away from the ocean! Stayed for my birthday with a large party and everyone was well taken care of by the staff! We had everything we needed including kitchen living and multiple sinks for everyone getting ready for dinner at the same time! Dinner on property was first class all the way! Want to go back asap!

My husband and I have stayed at many resorts, but I wouldn't say this is a resort if some have given this more than 1star they haven't experienced a "real" resort. We also didn't know this was a timeshare didn't see it on the site or wasn't told when we made reservations.I guess the word resort we thought it was... More

Great Stay at Casa Ybel. My wife loved the pool as my two sons and I love the ocean. The beach was great and we even had two dolphins swim up to us. We had one bedroom suite on the second floor with one king bed. The boys slept on the pull out sofa and slept great. The room was... More

Our family loves going to Casa Ybel each summer. We like having the amenities of home and a furnished kitchen. Our 2-bedroom unit is quite spacious; furniture and bathrooms were updated this year. There is a kiddie pool and wonderful shell collecting, plus a tiki bar for mom and dad.

My family and I stayed there in April as we do every year. This is by far the nicest property on the island in my opinion and me and my family have had many wonderful memories there. However, on this trip, the day to day management had apparrently changed and the service was just not the same. The most concerning... More

Mixed feelings though the positive outweigh the negative. Came here to relax for a couple of nights after touring round Florida. Initial impressions were positive - great view of the beach, very well tended grounds, accommodation looked a little tired inside but OK. Then a few less pleasant discoveries;- 1) The beach. Now what constitutes a great beach is down... More

Dear Jon J. Thank you for visit and positive review of Casa Ybel. You are correct, Sanibel Island is world famous for shelling. The beach loungers and umbrellas are reserved in advance set up and taken down daily in the location of choice along the lengthy expanse of Casa Ybel's beach.

A very relaxing atmosphere, with well appointed units of 1 to 2 bedrooms, including living room, kitchen, and balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The olympic-size swimming pool is a great centerpiece for socializing with friends and family. Barbeque grills are available near the units which makes it very convenient. Super market is within short driving distance from the Resort.
