Sanibel Moorings Resort is a complex of condos located in the eastern part of Sanibel Island. Even though the condos are relatively old, they are maintained so nicely that you will hardly find elements to complain. Of course, we would have preferred queen beds in all rooms but our second room was still comfortable with twin beds. Nothing was missing...

We've stayed here several years running, over Thanksgiving week. It's always been very pleasant. Sometimes too cold for going into the Gulf, but always great for walks and bike rides. The units at Sanibel Moorings are well appointed and each one is different (owners provide various cooking utensils and the like)...but always adequate.

Clean, friendly staff, well equipped kitchen, beautiful grounds, quiet and a wonderful place to relax! Walking to the lighthouse, sitting at the beach and shelling are our favorite activities. Remember to stop at the grocery store on your way here and bring your beach towels.

“Try to get a condo that's either beach front or beach view. The condos overlooking the parking lot (and the street) are as large and clean as the others, but breakfast and cocktails on the veranda certainly is not the same thing. Also, don't get a condo overlooking the pool--they tend to be loud. There are nice condos across the street overlooking the canal, but it's a farther walk to the beach. Again, try to get canal front or canal views--away from the pool.”
