Only 20 feet to the beach. Large apartment style place with one bedroom, bathroom and lining room/dining room. More for a family who stay a week. Stayed one night. Comfortable. They have rabbits that live there.
We had a great weekend getaway at Casa Ybel. The location is perfect, steps away from the beach. You can rent umbrellas and chairs from them or bring your own. We also enjoyed the pool a lot, mostly around happy hour at Coconuts, drinks were great (try to catch the happy hour 3 - 5 pm daily, otherwise drinks can be pricey)! The hammocks throughout the property were a nice touch. The room was very clean and with so much space! We also loved or balcony and had coffee there every morning. Definitely enjoyed our stay at Casa Ybel.
Great place. took the family for a second time in the last month. great access to the beach. great pool area. thistle lodge food is great. down town sanibel not to far away. highly recommended. We have been stuck in the house for 3 months due to lock down and wanted a getaway. Casa Y Bel have taken extra precautions to make the hotel even safer. beach views are great and was very peaceful
I was looking for a place locally to take my kids for a week. I've been a resident nearby for 30 years. Decided on Casa Ybel for two reasons. I was familiar with the property (and it is beautiful) and I was told that the units had been remodeled. The first impression when arriving at the room was wow, this is NOT remodeled. It was furnished with what I would describe as thrift store furniture. Seriously, not a piece of furniture was new or even matched for the matter. The appliances were not very clean and the utensil draw was disgustingly dirty with old and rusted knives. OK, I'll deal with this. There were several issues during the week. Obviously, maintenance is really lacking here. There was no light in the refrigerator or microwave and the phone in the living area did not work The lights were corrected yet the phone was never fixed which meant having to go to the bedroom to use that one every time. We also had ants on the kitchen counter and housekeeping was, not the best. I was also told the laundry was free but that was not the case. Only certain locations were free but not the one directly across from our unit. There was a grill available for us to use but did not light properly and only one of the three burners worked so it was impossible to use as well as ants crawling all over the grill area so I had to hold the food in my hand. What really bothered me the most was that I was told it was remodeled with new appliances and it simply wasn't The appliances had dates of 2015. Not terribly old, but not taken care of either. I will find another place next time. It's a shame that this property has gone so far down hill.…
They advertise themselves as one of most luxurious resorts in Sanibel Captiva island and its far from reality. Rooms are outdated and whole property crying for renovation. But the best part they have ants in the rooms, i called them twice asking to address the issue and all what they proposed is to spray chemicals in the room where i was staying with infant and a toddler? really? I canceled my 9 days stay at Casa Ybel on day 4 and moved out to South Seas Resort in Captive, which was the best decision i have made during this trip. There is nothing to compare between these two... Souths Seas rooms much nicer, location better and no pests in the room
