We spent a week at this resort in an efficiency unit.It is dated and the efficiency units are very small. However the biggest problem is the beds. They are the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE I have ever experienced in my 10 years of timeshare exchange. We spoke to people who rented the one bedroom units and they said the bed in those... More

This resort is very old and tired. Beware if you book the 3 person studio... even though the resort website says all units have a porch or balcony if you book this unit through RCI or any other booking website besides the hotel itself you will end up above the office and laundry with no porch or balcony in dreaded...

We booked a last minute studio efficiency to meet up with friends who have a time share there. Room was smaller than expected but you can't beat a full size kitchen & steps from the immaculate pool area (with bbqs). Friends stayed in the cottage closest to the beach and the loft and "secret" entrance were great. The beach is... More

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 2 kids & 75 year old Grandma) + dog went for the weekend to one of the cottages (they have 2 in total) and we were happily surprised with the hotel, the cottage, the location and everything, It is a very clean hotel overall, the cottage was impeccable and had everything that we needed....

We had the cottage closest to the beach and it was gorgeous. The view from the loft was fabulous! Pool was always quiet and very clean. The grounds were clean and maintained. The people at the front desk were always pleasant and were attentive to our needs. Loved it and would highly recommend to anyone!

We had booked this resort through Interval International relying on the reviews being accurate...which to the most part they were. there resort is dated but well maintained. It immediately gives you the feel of the 60's as do many of the owners guests. There are two buildings. Building A overlooks the pool area. Building B is closer to the beach... More

Read all the reviews on this resort because they are true! I knew exactly what I was getting myself into so I can't complain. The staff at this resort is the best. Dawn was so helpful and went out of her way to make our stay satisfying. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the pool is immaculate. Now the bad... More

Great small hotel with beautiful beach access, lush tropical landscape. The rooms are small and dated but if you come for the beaches and sun it is the best of Sanibel. Located directly on the white sandy beaches. Free wifi that extends out to the beach. They allow small dogs and have a full kitchen. A very relaxing vacation for... More

This resort has it's own beach just a hundred yards from the furthest room. Although it could be considered dated, it's clean and the rooms have everything needed for a long stay. The pool area is great and they have a live band come in at least once a week which was a treat. A great stay.

We had to change our Spring Break plans at the last minute, and chose Sanibel as our destination. Condos are generally rented Saturday to Saturday, and that didn't suit our schedule. Hotels were outrageously expensive. During one of my email exchanges with Kenoyer property management (they manage the Caribe as well as some condos on Sanibel), I found out they... More
