For the last few years we have spent January 2-9 in Sanibel at the West Wind Inn. Unfortunately we have been unable to book West Wind Inn for 2006 as they are not accepting bookings yet and cannot tell us when they may. So rather than be left with nowhere to go I did some digging around and have found there is availability at the Waterside Inn which has great reviews on this site and seems a good alternative.
I have a question around the pools though - we like to lie by the pool in the sun. I heard that one of the pools at Waterside is quite shaded and that the other is only for the use of visitors staying in the Condos (we would be staying in a cottage).
Has anyone been to Waterside and could comment please
