“Absolutely fantastic--Unit 108”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

We were shocked at how nice unit 108 was--fully renovated, super clean, fresh, comfortable. The complex is nice, staff friendly, quick access to the beach, good location on the island. We will be back--this was one of the best rentals we have ever stayed in on any vacation, anywhere!

It's a great place, not perfect, but what is? Beautiful condo a little small, but lanai is BIG!, super pool, great location, near everything, a view of the gulf, we heard the waves at night. Unfortunately, we also heard a lot of landscapers' noise, under our lanai for what seemed like hours with the leafblowers and then the next day Holiday Inn had their guys. Totally unpredictably, the condo across the way was having a total renovation. Saws going non-stop, and two nights someone downstairs was smoking a cigar, which filled our place of course. Once we complained though, it stopped right away. Linen exchange not a problem. I would recommend one nearer to the beach to avoid landscape noise, and also have a garage, (which we didn't) for beach equipment and bikes. (free bikes to use would be a nice perk)

Room Tip: Choose closer to the beach to avoid landscaper noise.

Our family has been spending the Thanksgiving holiday season at the Siesta for 18 years, and each year is like coming home to our adoptive family. The condos are immaculate, the pool is always warm & inviting, the beach, WOW. Can't say enought good things about Sanible Siesta. The whole staff is there to welcome us and make us feel so much at home. Our family loves, loves, loves Sanibel Siesta. Would never think of going anywhere else.

Room Tip: We always stay in the beach front units. Love looking out at the water and watching the dolphins sw...

This is by far one of the nicest places to stay on Sanibel Island. These condos are always so clean and beautiful and the staff go above and beyond to make your stay excellent. We have been staying here with our children since they were babies(ages 25,16,13) and when given the option they would rather come here than go on a cruise or to a theme park. We rent the bikes and love the shelling as well as having access to floats, chairs among other accessories that we don't have to worry to pack because they are in the garage which is another plus as your car is protected from the sun and the occassional sun shower when heading out for late lunch or dinner. It is close to all shopping, sights, recreation and above all you have to head over to George and Wendy's Bar and Grill for some of the best food on the island, then get your breakfast at Over Easy Cafe or grab Pizza at Island Pizza because all of these places keep us coming back to Sanibel. Sanibel Siesta is supreme as we have stayed all over the island for 12 years+!!! The only thing we would change is the fact we can't bring our Lab with us as that is the only time we have strayed from staying here as we just can't leave her everytime. We would offer they should charge a hefty refundable deposit for people who want to take their pet because we saw people this year with their small dogs in the condos next to us and we know they did not have permission they brought them because they are small dogs!! If your dog is well behaved and you pay a $500 refundable(if no damages or littering of pet droppings) deposit you would not bring a pet to lose that money. That is the only negative if that because we understand people abuse the condos when they have untrained animals and bad habits of not cleaning after a pet....So that is probably why it remains one of the nicest places to stay on Sanibel.....EXCELLENT PLACE!!! Stayed in Units 608****,602** and 402, 403

Room Tip: 608 is beyond amazing inside and out...The patios face the beach and you walk right down and onto th...

Our Family stayed for 5 nights at Sanibel Siesta Condominiums it was great. When we arrived our room was large and very clean. The garage we had for our car was great it also had all the chairs and stuff that we need to spend our 5 days. It was very convenient it was a few steps to the beautiful beach. the only one thing I did not like was the linen exchange you have to stay more than 5 nights to be able to exchange your linens for the week. I was responsible to wash my towels while I was there they have a laundry room for your use but it's not free. the office personnel was very pleasant and helpful. I would come back another time with my family :)

Room Tip: They have the picture of the rooms in there web-site make sure you look at the rooms before you make...

Started going to Sanibel Siesta four years ago when we found it by accident across from Holiday Inn. First time we stayed for seven nights, then 10, then 14, then 16 now for 18 nights this Cctober. The pool is beautiful, beach beautiful and the room immaculate with everything you need. Love the large lanai overlooking the gulf : ) Staff is so friendly and accomodating.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Sanibel Siesta. We stayed in Unit #405 and it really felt like home away from home. It does need some furniture and bedspread updating, but overall it was very nice, spacious, and clean. We specially enjoyed the peaceful and quiet setting.

The staff was extremely nice and very professional, especially Sarah who made our reservations.

My family and I are looking forward to staying at Sanibel Siesta next year.
