My family has been coming to Sanibel for the last 12 years. We have stayed at many of the condos on the island, but never a resort. We have always driven by Casa Ybel and thought is was a beautiful property so we decided to stay there for a long weekend. The landscaping is gorgeous and the property is very well maintained. The accomodations were upscale and very comfortable. The pool and beach area are very nice. I loved the way they handled beach chair rentals. You pay upfront for the number of days you need beach chairs and they are set up on the beach in front of your condo by 9:00am each morning with a tag that reads "Reserved for Room ***" It always stresses me out to think a resort will run out of beach chairs. No worries here. We ate at Coconuts twice. The food is very good and the poolside service was very fast. This resort is geared toward families with children of all ages. There were many many many children. So if you are looking for a couples only environment, this may not be appealing. Overall a very nice place to stay and will definitely stay there again.
