The condos were beautiful with everything you need to feel at home. 2 bedrooms 2baths. 50 feet to the beach where you find sea shells everywhere. The beach was endless. We walked 45 min in one direction and did not see the end. Beautiful pools, bike rentals so you can explore the great bike paths. A morning talk on shells...

This was my family's first time at this resort and we just can't wait to come back. The condo was clean, and spacious. The staff was friendly and positive and helpful with things to do in the area. Our condo was literally 50 steps from the beach. There was plenty of beach lounge chairs and umbrella's to use daily. That...

Always enjoy being here. Weather this year was perfect. Staff at The Moorings always friendly and helpful. The landscaping is beautiful. Fishing in the canal always fun. Great place for a family vacation.

Our experience was very positive. The condo was recently redone very tastefully with a kitchen opening up to the main room, a giant tv, and comfortable furniture. The beach was out the door and around the corner. The pool was right there too. Will definitely come back to this condo. Only drawback was the very noisy gas leaf blowers which...

Just beautiful and perfect. They have so many amenities and the staff is very nice and helpful. Our room was so nice and updated. I really liked that they have beach chairs and umbrellas for their guest to use on the beach. Liked that we were steps away from the beach and only minutes from the Main Street where everything...

My family had been going to Sanibel Moorings since the 70's and this is the first year that we won't go back. We kept going out of nostalgia for the place but there are so many better options out there. There are ZERO amenities other than the pool which they have not updated since the 1970's. The apartments are individually...

I stayed at Sanibel Moorings in September-October 2016. Off season, so the island wasn't mobbed. This resort is wonderful for a relaxing vacation. The location can't be beat, the accommodations are great, & the staff is helpful. Spectacular sunrises, nice gardens on the property, nice pools. It's my go-to vacation spot on Sanibel.

“Exhaust fans in both bathrooms should be checked - very noisy. Toilet in master bath should be checked - the actuating lever sometimes sticks and the water keeps running.”
