“Paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Our stay at Sandalfoot Condomiumns was fantastic. Our unit 5A1 was incredible..the view, proximity to pool and the ease of getting to the beach...it was a first floor unit...no lugging beach chairs and toys up and down steps. The shelling, beach, sunrises, and sunsets were breathtaking. we will return to 5A1.

Room Tip: rooms like 5A1on first floor are amazing

This was our second visit to Sandalfoot and once again it was beyond our expectations. We stayed in condo number 4A1 which was beautiful. Lovely and clean, well equipped including washing machine and dryer. The beach was fantastic. Local shops, cafes and restaurants never let you down offering fantastic food and service which all helps you have a great break.
We will certainly go back!

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor which we found great, no problems.

We stayed in unit 5A3 which was very nicely furnished, spotlessly clean, and faced the water. We found we had everything we needed although we mostly ate our meals out. Would suggest they keep some basic spices and maybe a bottle of windex on hand for their guests. Went to beach and pool every day as the weather was perfect. Went sightseeing and shopping as there are lots of great gift and clothing shops to peruse. Other than the pokey elevator, everything else at Sandalfoot was perfect. We really hope to go back to Sanibel and will want to stay in the same unit.

Room Tip: Loved the screened in lanai to watch the beautiful sunrise each morning.

This was our first time at Sandalfoot, and our third time on Sanibel. We stayed in 1C1, which has a great view of the ocean, even at ground level. Our week started with the Labor Day weekend, which meant that the beach was busy on Sunday, but it was very quiet for the rest of the week.

The complex is in a good location on the island, with easy access to/from the causeway, and to other shops and services on the island. It is dangerously close to Pinocchio's ice cream shop, which we did not visit until our last evening there. Staff at the front office are very helpful, knowledgeable and professional.

Beach is very calm with a gentle slope at low and high tides. My 80+ year old parents were in the water twice a day and enjoyed every minute of it!

The unit has a well equipped kitchen and is suitable for a family with one or two children, or for two adult couples. Back bedroom is smaller than the front bedroom, and does not have any views, but that's not unusual for any condo on the island. Screened porch has a table and chairs for 4, which we used in the evenings. Used the outdoor grill a couple of times and it worked well for our needs. Great spot for a beach vacation.

Just returned from a girls' weekend, and had a great time! The weather wasn't the best, but we managed to get in 3 good beach days. When the beach got too hot, we enjoyed cooling off in the refreshing pool. The unit (2C3) was spotless and very well appointed. There was everything we needed in the kitchen, and we were thankful for beach chairs (although they are the very low ones and challenged my aging knees!) The beds are very comfortable, and sheets/towels are provided, as well as trash bags, toilet paper, dish soap and coffee filters. Leave the blow dryer at home - there is a nice-quality blow dryer in each bathroom. A closet in the hallway holds games, sand toys for the occasional rainy day, and a Playmate cooler for taking lunch and cold drinks to the beach. The office staff was pleasant, friendly and very accommodating. Check-in was quick and efficient, and our early check-out was simplified by a drop box outside the office. I'm looking forward to coming back to Sandalfoot 2C3 again and again, and I highly recommend staying here!!

When we arrived late the first day we were very dismayed regarding the extremely poor condition of the unit we reserved. Seems it was in disrepair because they were in the process of remodeling. Still very disheartening that this was not known by the front office. Suggestion for them to do walk throughs often since units are privately owned.
The long weekend was saved, however, by the rapid, apologetic and personable response of the management at 9:00 p.m. and we settled into a wonderful unit for an absolutely incredible "first beach vacation" with our new grandaughter, daughter and son-in- law. Unit 52A was clean, upgraded and very well equipped with a great view of fantastic sunrises at this time of year.
Thank you Nancy and crew. This will most definately be the place for many more memories in years to come! Already booking next year!

i thought the condo we stayed in was great! (4b3). very comfortable and clean. the kitchen was on the small side but it was great having kitchenware and utilities provided. had a great view of
the landscape and ocean from our balcony. really like that they supplied us with beach chairs too.
we were vacationing during tropical storm isaac and were kept updated regularly by staff on weather conditions. location was quiet and not crowded on the beach.
would definitly stay here again!!
