    We had a wonderful time when we stayed here. The rooms were roomy and opened right out into a large yard directly by the beach. It was so nice to sit on the porch and hear the ocean nearby. I highly recommend staying here.

    Don't pass up a chance to stay at the West Wind - friendly staff, great location, close to the beach, wonderful pool and bar. We had a blast and will come back and have already recommended it to friends who are headed to Sanibel/Captiva.

    Unfortunately, you will need a car, no matter which way you cut it. Getting from the Airport in a Limo or shuttle, not knowing the cost, may be convenient, but then you're stuck there, until a ride back to the airport.
