I am looking at visiting Sanibel Island in August and have my stay narrowed down to a couple of resorts but have a question that I am hoping someone on this forum will know the answer.
What is a "reservation fee"? I began to book with a resort using their on-line booking system and was expecting the applicable taxes to be tacked on to the listed rate of the condo but in addition, there was a reservation fee and an insurance fee listed which took the expected rate up an extra $100+. Is this common on Sanibel Island? I have travelled a fair bit and have not experienced this in the past. Is this the same thing as a daily resort fee that many resorts tack on to cover items such as wifi, etc?
Thanks in advance.
