This was our fourth time at Sanibel Arms, and we were as pleased as ever. It is simply a great facility. Quiet, small, very friendly staff, wonderful location with easy access by bike to all parts of Sanibel. We hated to leave. I'd recommend it to all.

Lots of activities on the island, bike riding, Ding Darling National Wildlife, fishing,shelling, boating and close to many restaurants. The island is close to Ft. Myers and... More

A friend recommended Sanibel Arms for our vacation which was in celebration of our 25th Anniversary. We stayed in unit E-7. Aside from different pictures or lamps, the pictures shown online are spot on. The unit is decorated perfectly. The girls in the front office are very helpful and took care of any questions we had promptly. The pool area... More

We consider ourselves to be very fortunate. First of all because we were lucky enough to discover these condominiums in the first place; secondly because every time we come back our experience is enhanced! Upgraded faclities e.g. the pool and poolside furniture; beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach. On the human relationships front we are particularly struck by the... More

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 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
