We have stayed here several times, in different condos, and always liked it. The units (all different) are good sized and the location is great - close to the wildlife refuge for jogs, and right on the beach. The only downside for us is you can't easily walk to any restaurants - true of a lot of the condo complexes... More

The complex is ideally located on Sanibel Island. We stayed in #E27, it is a 3 bedroom, and 2 bathroom unit. It faces the water. The unit seems to have been updated with the exception of the kitchen and the second bathroom. It is quaint, clean, comfortable (except for the beds..they are very hard) and decorated in a beach theme.... More

Steve B, General Manager at Pointe Santo de Sanibel, responded to this review

Thank you for favorable comments about Pointe Santo de Sanibel. We’re glad you enjoyed the pool, hot tub and beautifully manicured grounds. As you pointed out, Pointe Santo provides lounge chairs on the beach for our guests. The chairs are anchored to help protect Sanibel’s wildlife, especially sea turtles which nest on the beach between spring and fall. For the... More

Very nice, clean and right on the beach. Pool was very nice but walks on the beach & collecting shells and the amazing sunrise & sunsets are beyond compare. Parking was assigned but sometimes had others taking spots but issue resolved quickly. Will make this a go place again!

This is our second year at Pointe de Sanibel. Last year we stayed in B26 and had a delightful vacation. This year we are in D23 and not enjoying it as much. This side is darker since the sun doesn't hit it until late afternoon. Furnishings are dark as well which adds to the darkness of the condo. The general... More

i waver between 3 and 4 stars on this review. On one hand, the location is as advertised - fantastic. In winter this is the perfect unit for sunsets and has sweeping views from two side. It's tough to find a unit this large with such a good vista. However, on the other hand....yes, the amenities are a bit lacking... More

We just finished our trip to Sanibel Island 3 adults and 1 child. We stayed in unit C-22 and it was everything we imagined and more. Our condo was absolutely gorgeous - we had views of the grounds and the ocean. The owners are gracious and could not be easier to work with. Our condo came with beach chairs, boogie... More
