On a scale of 1-5 it is hard not to give this resort a 6! If I had been allowed to bring my puppy with me they would have had a hard time getting me to leave. The Tortuga Beach Club has everything that you need for a perfect vacation, but to be more accurate, it has everything that you would need for a couple to live full time.
The Unit is very well kept with the tropical theme that you would expect. The living room and dining room are one large area with the small walk-in kitchen connected to make the best use of space. The cookware is very nice compared to most other units we have stay at in the past. There is a sofa that can seat 6 people comfortably, and a very nice chair with an ottoman. The lower floor is completed with a huge screened in porch with a very nice table with 4 chairs and a lounge chair. Also on the porch is a small sink complete with an electrical connection for a blender, and 3 beach chairs.
Upstairs is a huge master bedroom with a very comfortable king sized bed. The bath/dressing area is nice sized and the closet opens from both the bedroom side and the dressing area side. The second bedroom has two twin sized beds that we pushed together for the couple that came with us to make it like a king bed. There is a second bath that is a typical bath, and also a closet with a stackable washer and dryer.
The pool area is very nice. It is open 24/7 with the agreement that you check in after 7:00 PM to keep people from making too much noise. The beach is about 100 yards out the back of the property with multiple boardwalks to get you to and from the beach. There are several BBQ pits throughout the property, but the nicest one is by the pool. This is a hug super pit that is as nice as my Weber Summit at my house. I love a nice pit and this one is excellent!
Parking is available under your unit so even if it were to rain you can get to and from your car without getting wet.
What are the negatives here? 28 steps to reach an upstairs unit, and if you got super picky you could say the carpets could be changed and the units updated a little. You better be ready for the "sticker shock" when you go to the restaurants and stores on Sanibel and Captive, and the food we have experienced is very average.
The island as a whole is the closest we have ever seen to Maui. The area where we stayed reminded us a lot of the area between Kaanapali and Kapalua but less built up and less commercial. I don't know if there are laws and restrictions but there are no fast food restaurants on the island, and there are no high rise hotels.
