For $2,000 in the off-season for a one week rental, you can do much better than Unit C102 at the Sanddollar. After my family traveled from north of Albany NY all the way to Sanibel, and I came over from Florida's east coast, we expected much better. The unit is in desperate need of updating. The most significant problems (one... More

Let me start by saying that we are not very high maintenance people. We are pretty low key, and it does not take much for us to have a good time. On that note, I'll begin. This unit, in all of it's infested, rundown glory, has created an entirely new level of hell here on Sanibel. We have been coming... More

This condo unit is amazing and is updated beautifully. Clean, modern and well equipped. The only negative is the condo owner has horrible communication skills. You have to chase after her to rent the unit and she does not respond to emails quickly. I have never had to chase down an owner to rent a condo and if this condo... More

We stayed in Sanddollar C203 from April 6 to the 13, 2013. Joining us was my son and his wife and my two Granddaughters, 12 and 15. The condo was lovely with a fantastic view of the Gulf from the lanai and the master bedroom. It was very clean, furnished nicely and had all the amenities we needed. There was... More

We rented unit C204 which is a two bedroom end unit with a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico from the lanai and the dining room window. We had perfect weather in our first stay at Sanddollar. The unit is very comfortable, clean and well stocked with everything you would want for a beach vacation. The grounds are pristine,... More

We spent our 10 year anniversary trip here, renting a unit from a couple and it has been just perfect! Very small and quiet there are soooooooooo many seashells on the beach!!! There are biking trails everywhere. You could fly in, taxi over and ride your bike to everything!

Sanddollar condos C203 are on a great beach & our condo was updated, clean and had an amazing view of the gulf! Very spacious. The pool was empty all of the time it was great!

We have been vacationing to Sanibel Island for many years in different condos. This year we stayed at Sanddollar room C102 and we absolutely loved it. I have never seen a better equiped kitchen as this one. The utility had 2 cabinets full to the top with beach and bathroom towels. In every room the closets had extra pillows and... More

I have been coming to Sanibel since 1976. Have rented many different condos during that time. Sanddoar C102 was a huge disappointment. Very outdated, the AC did not work well. We had to purchase room floor fans due to no ceiling fans. Won't be staying here again.

Marita and I have owned and rented C102 and seven other condos on Sanibel for three years without ever having a negative review. All of our condos are well maintained high-end direct gulf front units. Unit C102 did have a problem with a newly installed air conditioning system that... More

This unit is a dump! We have stayed at many lovely condos on Sanibel, but Sanddollar C-304 was the very worst! I don't think this unit had been cleaned in months. I dropped my ring on the floor in the master bedroom and discovered there were dead spiders and spider webs under the master bed. The comforter and blanket in... More

RoyalShell, Guest Relations Manager at Sanddollar, responded to this review

Royal Shell recently purchased Waterstone Resorts of which Sandollar C304 was a client. At the time of the Waterstone purchase, the owner of Sandollar C304 moved his unit to another rental company and Royal Shell did and does not manage Sandollar C304. More
