We had a wonderful time on our first family vacation. We rode bikes, got to deep sea fish, visited the j.n. ding darling national wildlife refuge and we also got to do a lot of shelling,playing in the ocean and sand.The island is very beautiful, the condo was relaxing and very pretty and the staff were very nice.

The overall location is nicely maintained and clean. The problem is the beach chairs and umbrellas are only on the beach from 10:30 to 3:00 and not at all on the weekends. So, I suppose if you live in Florida on the beach maybe this is no big deal. But, when you go there from anyplace else this policy stinks!... More

While we appreciate your feedback, the beach chairs and umbrellas we place on the beach are provided as an additional amenity with no cost to our guests. Our condos are equipped with beach chairs and umbrellas as well. More

We had a dockside condo in June. the condo was beautiful and we needed nothing but our food. everything else was supplied. the staff in the front office was very good to us! very quick to answer any questions before and during our trip. the dockside units are perfect for fisherman.

We first visited Sanibel Island in 1992 and stayed at Sanibel Arms. Twenty-three years and numerous visits later we have yet to stay one night at any other facility, and do not expect to on future visits. The units are clean, well maintained and decorated and very well supplied. Everything you need to make this your home is there. As... More

Sanibel arms condo is located in a nice area with access to private beach minutes from the condo. We enjoyed our vacation with our 8yo daughter. Lori's condo was clean and comfortable with all the essential amenities. We highly recommend the condo to people of all ages.

Stayed here many times. The grounds a kept up and well maintained in a beautiful tropical setting. Nice covered pool enclosed with a screen. Up top above the pool is for sunbathing or watching the fireworks on the 4th of July. Many units to choose from and both garden, beach and partial gulf view. Nice plus is that every unit... More

Sanibel Arms is my favorite place to stay. The condos are clean and updated, and the grounds and pool are nicely maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is quiet and everyone is friendly. The beach is very close as is the lighthouse.
