The island and the hotel are great thr staff very friendly and professional especially Elizabeth but the water smells bad to the point that the whole room smells bad after a shower. I highly recommend it very calm place. The food is great and the prices are good. Definitely coming back. Don’t forget beach shoes as the beach is full of shells. Also order your umbrella bike and paddle board before check in as last reservation is at 3 pm and first is at 7 am

Hotel's Favorite
My friend and I stayed in a renovated two bedroom condo last week. Our experience was wonderful. Sanibel Moorings goes above and beyond for their guests. Prior to our trip they were very responsive to email and phone calls. When we arrived check in was easy and quick from our car. They have a texting service for any questions, or if you need anything at all. The condo was impeccably clean, and had all the comforts of home. It was a short walk through beautiful gardens to get to the beach. Every morning we would have breakfast on the lanai and enjoy the beautiful gardens around us. The beach was clean, chairs and umbrella's were always available. The water was crystal emerald green blue, and warm. Shelling was one of our favorite pass times on the beach. The worst part of our trip was leaving to come home. I enjoyed my stay so much, we are already planning our next trip, and I am also looking at buying a unit as well. Well done Sanibel Moorings, you gave my friend and I the much needed relaxation, and memories that will last a lifetime.

Myself my husband & our 2 boys 11 and 7 wanted to go out of the country to somewhere tropical but covid 19 restrictions were still pretty tight. I settled on Sanibel/ Captiva Island. Safe, friendly and so much fun parasailing & driving around both islands on the golf cart. Resteraunt choices were excellent weather was perfect. Found a miĺlion shells and only spotted a couple of jellyfish early early ams Lovely family vacation

Yet another fantastic stay with Sanibel Moorings! 10 years and running! Beautiful grounds and fantastic staff. The Moorings has been responsive in providing more chairs and umbrellas for beach fun, as well as keeping the goods in tip-top shape. Cannot wait to return ASAP!

This was our 4th stay at Sanibel Moorings and we've already reserved our dates for next year! 2 years ago we also stayed father up the coast by Sarasota just to see how it compared, but felt it was more a tourist location with spring breakers. At Sanibel Moorings and on Sanibel Island generally, the mood is laid back & simpler. The fact that there are no traffic signals & there are extensive bike paths; the island has preserved the warmth & beauty of life. At Sanibel Moorings we love the the convenient location; the quiet privacy of the individual condo units; the beautifully manicured & colorful grounds; the comfortable & clean accommodations; seeing friends who come back year after year & the professional, efficient & responsive staff are the reasons we keep coming back and will for years to come! It's become our second home!

I can not say enough positive things about my experience with Sanibel Moorings. They came in a week before our stay in Sanibel when another company double booked the condo we planned to stay at. The staff were wonderful and so accommodating of everything we needed. The condo, beach, pool, and location were even better than the place we had originally book, making our stay at the Moorings a very happy surprise in place of what could have been a cancelled vacation!
