This was our first trip to Sanibel Island and we weren't disappointed. We decided on the Song of the Sea from reading other reviews. What we really enjoyed about staying at Song of the Sea was the feel and ambience of being in "old Sanibel." Yes, this facility was built 45 or 50 years ago so you aren't going to find all the latest and greatest amenities that you would find at a modern, 5-star chain hotel in Naples. But you will find a relaxed, comfortable, retro-style facility that brings back the feel of times that were slower and much more simple. Did you read other reviews that say that the bedroom was to small for the king-size bed? Well, just remember that there weren't king-size beds when this property was built. So, just be realistic when you set your expectations. We were not disappointed at all.
Song of the Sea serves a continental breakfast each morning which was delightful. Be sure to make your own waffles! As we sat outside on the patio at breakfast, we chatted with other guests who had stayed at Song of the Sea previously....some for many years. One couple told us that they have come to the island for almost twenty years and that Song of the Sea was the absolute best place to stay.
Cindy, our innkeeper was very helpful and friendly as was the staff we encountered each day. We'll come back to Sanibel, and when we do, we'll stay here again.
