We recently spent a week at the Sanibel Moorings with our three young children and extended family. We spent the extra money and had an oceanfront room. This place really is wonderful. It is beautiful, friendly atmosphere during the day, clean, and the grounds are wonderful. My only complaint is that the people above us were up most of the night. The first night 4 am - very loud and fighting - the second night 1 am. I went to the office and told them of the situation. Nothing was done and the third night at 2 am my husband was going to call the cops but they settled about 3 am. I went to the office again and that night it was 12 am and our final night was quiet. On check out I was told that these people have come there for the past four years and stay a month. If we had trouble again "we" were to call the cops - they actually said they have had to call the cops before. I realized then that my complaints meant nothing when they were getting a month's worth of ocean front rent out of these people and they keep letting them come back even though they have previously caused problems. The complex has a night time quiet rule as it is noted as a family place -- it is to be quiet from 10 pm until 8 am but that doesn't mean much when it is not enforced to all the renters. We were not compensated or discounted for our troubles. They just shook their heads and said they were night people and again "we" were to call the cops. I would recommend this place but I would either make sure I was on the second floor or ask who is renting above you.
