My husband and I, while visiting our daughter on the East coast decided to spent a few days on Sanibel Island, Florida. After looking at some hotel websites, we decided on the Sanibel Inn. While working with the agent we were able to get an excellent rate and a discount coupon for $50.00 that we could use at any of the properties that were owned by the same company that owned the Sanibel Inn. This coupon could be used for food, gifts, umbrella rentals etc but not the room.
Upon check-in, the front desk receptiionist was delightful. she was very freindly and had a vast knowledge of the area. Our room wasn't ready as we were early so she upgraded us to an ocean front room instead of a side room we had booked. WOW!! that was just great!!
Our room was not exceptionally large but quite comfortable, It was beautifully appointed with wonderful creamy white quilts on the beds, lovely curtains, a large bathroom with tons of amenities, big fluffy towels, a microwave, refrigerator and a great balcony overlooking the ocean. The rooms were immaculate and each day were refreshed and cleaned exceptionally well.
Each day, when we went to the beach, the facility provided as many beach towels as we wanted, and very comfortable lounge chairs on the beach. There were free bicycles and if you wanted to rent an umbrella they could do that for you there.
There was a great TIKI bar by the pool. The pool was warm and had steps which was great for the children there.
On the property is a fine restaurant that has jazz and from what I understand, an outstanding menu,
My husband and I had a wonderful time and will definately return to this property.
