Spent several days visiting a family member who owns a couple of weeks as a Time Share. At first, this is an impressive property. Immaculate grounds, excellent pool, steps away from a clean beach. The bedrooms are very spacious, the living room is okay, the balconies are a delight. Comments regarding the small kitchen are correct but we only ate breakfast and lunch in the unit so this wasn't a problem. Furniture looked relatively new and was functional and sturdy. Complimentary Greens Fees at the Dunes Golf & Tennis Club (separate review) which is a ten minute drive away are a nice touch.

It's the lack of details that keep me from making this a five star review rather than the four I give it. No towels available at the pool/hot tub, you need to bring your own. Seems like an odd thing to leave out given the advertised weekly rate. The hall bathroom in our unit was cheap and old as evidenced by the loss of silvering along the entire bottom edge. Made the bathroom look like something in a cheap motel not a first class resort.

Overall, we had a great time but the missing details dampened an otherwise enjoyable experience.

Don't get me wrong, the Tortuga Beach Club is lovely. The resort is steps from the beach, and sturdy beach chairs for 2 are provided. The view from unit 122 is obscured by palms from the screened in porch (which was terrific). The living room appears recently upgraded. The dining room is very cramped and the kitchen is small. Although it has most things you'll need, there is nothing "extra". The master bath has one sink although 2 could have been provided. The mirror was aging and the paint job not top notch. The towels were not resort quality. There is no bathroom on the first floor. This unit would have been cramped for two couples.

during our stay at tortuga, my wife and I toured other properties on Sanibel. We were so impressed with the Tortuga resort, we purchased two more weeks. Excellent pool and hot tub spa. Very short walk to the beach. Club house facilities. All units have sea views of the Gulf. Grounds were well maintained. Look forward to returning next year.

Having just returned from a beautiful stay at Tortuga Beach Club, I recommend it to everyone. Do you want beautiful grounds? Check. Beautiful pool area with plenty of chairs and a hot tub? Check. Clean and spacious accommodations? Check. Great location and effortless access to the beach and the ocean? Check. Easy parking right at your unit? Check. The resort passes the biggest test of all---you won't want to leave.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views, but more stairs.

This resort offers a wide variety of services, and excels in every one. They have a friendly staff, excellent pool and spa, games etc for kids, full kitchen with washer and dryer, beautiful grounds and the perfect location.
The units are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Magnificent views are available from every unit.
Being right on the Gulf of Mexico means that you can choose the beach or the pool every day, without any inconvenience.
Tortuga is secluded from the day traffic of Sanibel Island and is very close to wonderful restaurants, golf and entertainment.
If you want a private and exclusive resort, then come to Tortuga. If you want to bring the family, then come to Tortuga. If you want a quiet and wonderful vacation, then come to Tortuga.

Room Tip: Upper rooms are a little bigger, but you sacrifice the second entrance and front stairs that are sta...

A fantastic place to stay. It has everything. Pool, hot tub, seclusion and literally steps to the beach.
Each suite has a full kitchen and laundry. It is close to all of the many spectacular restaurants that Sanibel has to offer. Once you stay you will never want to leave.
