We have stayed at Sanibel Arms West a few times and this time at the" original" Sanibel Arms next door. As usual, we had a great time on the Island, it has so much to offer. Unfortunately we cannot recommend Unit D7. This unit is very old and needs an urgent renovation. The Management of the Condos were very helpful... More

After looking online at all the condos on Sanibel we decided on Sanibel Arms, we couldn't have been happier. During our stay we looked at a bunch of other condos and found none better. We stayed in unit C7 which is on the canal side across the small street from the ocean. There is fishing out the back door and... More

I have to start out by saying that you MUST stay here. Some of the best condos on the island! Your own private beach, it's amazing and so peaceful! The pool is very nice and one of the cleanest I've ever seen. The staff is very, very friendly! The curb appeal and look of the condos are so pretty! But... More

Please know that we love Sanibel Arms. The staff is helpful, the location perfect. However, due to circumstances beyond our control we stayed in unit E-4 that was not inviting at all. The TV's were ancient, the microwave had to be replaced, the refrigerator was rusty as well as the freezer, the dishwasher controls were defective, the unit was sparsely... More

This was our first trip to Sanibel Island and I am delighted that we picked Sanibel Arms. The condo was very well decorated and clean. Having a washer and dryer was a real plus. Office staff was very nice and having a Monday and Wed breakfast and Fri. lunch was an added bonus. Very close to beach and the pool... More

Our family has stayed here many times over the years. It is the best value on Sanibel! Rooms are comfortable, staff is great and the location is on the beach. Close to restaurants, activities and yet private, quiet.

This is a condominium complex. Mostly 1 Bedroom units Two bedroom units are on the corners of each building. The staff is good, the cleaning service could be better. it is definitely family oriented and many renters come back year after year. The beach is wonderful, the canal side is quiet and inviting. On the negative side, each condo is... More

Sanibel Island is one of my family's favorite summer vacations. We discovered Sanibel Arms Condominium about there years ago and have stayed there every year since. It is a very nice community, private and quiet. Our condo was a short walk to the beach, which is amazing. The kids enjoyed all that Sanibel offers; the beach, fishing, biking, picking shells,...
