With better than 20+ years experience of visiting Sanibel Island, FL, it absolutely does not get any better then Tortuga Beach Club. My family enjoys the causeway crossing, the beach area, the pool, our time shared with old friends, the planned activities and the beauty of the grounds.

Room Tip: Lower unit in elevator building is excellent choice. However, any unit at Tortuga would be wonderfu...

We just arrived home from our two-week vacation at Tortuga Beach Club on Sanibel Island and we're already making plans for our return next year. Tortuga is a gorgeous property right on the beach. The fully-furnished kitchen was recently updated as was the living room furniture in the two-bedroom condo. The Tortuga staff is absolutely terrific and attentive to every detail which made our stay a true delight.

Beyond the resort, we enjoyed biking, shopping, walks on the beach, shelling, kayaking, great food and inspiring sunsets. I hope you enjoy Sanibel and Tortuga as much as we did!

Room Tip: Bldg F is the only building on the resort that has an elevator.

Going across the causeway to get to Sanibel we put down our windows every year and throw away the worry and stress of the year and get ready to come to our second home. We're been coming to this resort for almost 30 years and as stated in other reviews for this property, it just gets better. One of the reasons for this diligence for perfection is their great staff. Betsy goes way beyond how we've seen other site managers perform, along with other long-time staff Cindy and Dick. They are very professional in performing their job but most importantly they're just amazingly nice people. We own a corner unit and the view from both the downstairs porch and the balcony off the master are breathtaking. The units are constantly being updated and the staff is very considerate of the suggestions made by the owners. Sanibel and Captiva also have great restaurants and shopping but some nights we just like grilling at Tortuga and hanging out on the balcony enjoying the view.

Room Tip: We perefer the upper units but only one building has an elevator so get prepared for some exercise g...

This beautiful vacation paradise is so inviting and relaxing. The apartments very comfortable, contain everything you need to enjoy your week, and are maintained in excellent condition. But one week is just not enough!!!! It gets harder and harder to leave, and the next year just doesn't come about fast enough. If you want to enjoy Sanibel Island, staying at Tortuga Beach Club Resort is the way to go. And lastly, the staff at the resort is tops. They are so welcoming and responsive. What a glorious vacation home!

This was our 30+ year in our time-share unit at Tortuga. As always the unit was spotless and the staff provided outstanding service. The resort manager, Betsy Cain, has maintained the outstanding reputation for comfort and service. The facility is as beautiful today as it was 30 years ago (if not better). We look forward to next year when our unit will have a safe in the unit for protection of valuables and smoking will be prohibited on the screened porches.

Would highly recommend for families but not so much for adults on their own. Location great for access to all the island has to offer and quick access of island for those who want to go off island. Spacious units, well equipped with large balconies. There are other resorts with closer views/location to beach. We prefer the resort next door as rooms open right to the beach allowing the breezes and sounds to sooth you to sleep at night.

Tortuga Beach Club is the perfect spot to vacation alone, as a couple, with family, and with friends. The resort is small, quiet, and although not brand-new it has been beautifully maintained. The staff has been in place for many years and do everything possible to make your stay "perfect" - the only surprises at this resort are good ones. If you are a golfer, this is your place with complimentary greens fees at The Dunes Country Club included with your unit. If you are a nature lover, the snowy plovers, pelicans, dolphins, and manatees welcome you. Sanibel Island is a wonderful vacation spot, and Tortuga Beach Club is a lovely place from which to enjoy it. Everyone who ever walks in the front door says the same thing: "Wow". Can't beat that!

Room Tip: Upper and lower units are quite different in layout. In the upper units, both of the bedrooms are o...
