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

I am one of the original timeshare owners of an efficiency by the pool. I always stay approximately the same time each year since inception in July-Aug. We live in Florida in a resort town so sometimes we day trip to the island. Every time you leave the island you pay $6 to return so plan on being there -... More

This was a very pleasant surprise for a small resort. Management could not have been any more helpful or nice. Beautiful pool and hot tub in the pool area. Grilling facilities all around resort. Nice footpaths leading to beach. Beach was incredible, very clean and shells everywhere. We had an efficiency which had a murphy bed - one of the... More

This is an older resort. But only 30 steps to the beach and water. No amenities, other than a very nice pool and hot tub. Good place for couples or maybe families with small children. Teenagers would be bored here. They provide a beach umbrella and chairs. I agree with other reviews....if you are looking for pricey amenities, then go... More
