We stayed at the waterfront from February 12th to Feb 19th while specking out our home we are building in Sanibel. The waterfront was close and convenient. The hotel is on the water which is pretty. It is a clean, well kept hotel. You can walk to all restaurants and entertainment which is great. The only complaints I have are that the parking is terrible! If you are visiting in the winter months, be prepared for difficult parking. The waterfront does not own the parking lot in front of the hotel, The Villages does so anyone can park there. If you are not parked there by about 4 pm, you will have to park very far away and walk to the hotel. There is a lot going on at the square and around town so everyone parks everywhere. If you have difficulty walking or use an assistive device, this hotel will not be for you. Also, the food in the restaurant is awful. The breakfast buffet is not good. They offer a lot....scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, grits, toast, cereal, bagels, and omelets to order. The problem is all of the buffet food is cold and dry and the made to order omelet had so much grease on it, when we tipped the plate the grease just dripped onto the table. I've never seen anything so poorly done. The buffet is 10.00 per person. Go to Too Jays just a few blocks away. There is also entertainment every night in the bar/lobby area. It's very loud but the rooms are well insullated so you can't hear it. However, the check in desks are in the lobby and when the music is going you can't communicate well with the receptionist. Not very well planned. All in all, I would stay here again and avoid the food. The staff are very nice and helpful and you can't beat the location. There is a fridge and microwave in the room as well as a safe.
