excellent stay in Sanibel great locationPosted Dec 16, 2013
Pros: clean, comfortable, home like, beautiful
Cons: zoning for air conditioning was an issue in my unit. 1 bedroom units were somewhat small but we were only in the unit at night
Location: bike path kayaking 'DaRLING " NATIONAL PARK, HIKING SHELLING BIRD WATCHING, GREAT RESTURANTS, SOMEWHAT PRICEY BUT NO MORE THAN NORTHEAST PRICES
wonderful staff, great gardens onsite bike rental and kayak use, every condo was no more then 10 minutes walk to the beach, beach chairs and umbrellas on site. beautiful gardens, garden tour was exceptional, Anita was wonderful, the person who manages the gardens, The staff was the best I have ever dealt with. Prices for incidentals ie soap towels, etc were fair. I would advise to buy groceries off the island. The condos are well equipped and comfortable. I did have very minor issues with the set up but all in all the unit was a 3.8 out of 4. I am already planining my next trip with my entire family. This will be my vacation of choice

Exceptional Beach CondoPosted Oct 21, 2013
Cons: Bed pillows were hard, but a quick trip to Target took care of that.
Location: Location near the Bridge worked great for us as we had an early departing flight. We were near the Marina and enjoyed a ride on the Sanibel Thriller.
We were delighted with this spacious condo and the access to the beach. We also enjoyed salt water pool and the "botanical garden" reputation of Sanibel Moorings. It was beautiful. We will definitely come back in the future.

2nd Stay, Great ExperiencePosted Aug 23, 2013
Pros: quiet, private, botanical garden, business center
Location: 2 mile walk on the beach to the lighthouse, kayak and paddle board rentals on site, a quick drive to shops and restaurants
This was our 2nd time at The Moorings. We like it becasue it's on the beach, quiet, with lush landscaping, and a good walk to the lighthouse. I've always found the staff friendly and helpful. We've stayed in two different rooms, and they've been clean and comfortable. While I don't cook much on vacation, it's nice to have the option with a full kitchen. This year, the air condidtion did not work well in the bedroom, though. The duct vent is not centrally located in the room. Maybe a ceiling fan would help to keep the bedroom cooler. Other than that, it was a comfortable stay. I anticipate going back to The Moorings next year.

Beautiful , peaceful and tranquil. Will go backPosted Aug 23, 2013
Pros: The privacy, cleanliness, and beauty
Location: The restaurants are great. Food is delicious and reasonable. Billy's Bikes is run by the nicest sweetest people
Sanibel Moorings is so peaceful. The grounds are so pretty. We loved the privacy and the staff was so accommodating and helpful. There are so many positive aspects. Ex: your own parking spot, the condo was decorated so appropriately for the beach it was the best. Air conditioning was so cold and felt great everyday. That was a huge plus. The hotel offers beach chairs and umbrellas, kayaks and bikes for free. Even the laundry room was spotless! There was only one drawback that had nothing to do with the hotel. The beach water was clean but brown. The local lake poured its overflow into the ocean causing the color. This was throughout Sanibel. We drove up to Captiva-20 minutes away. Water was better. I hope next year the Sanibel waters are blue again and I will be back to Sanibel Moorings

Nice condo close to the beach and restaurants.Posted Aug 15, 2013
Pros: Great location and helpful staff. Beautiful botanical gardens! Right on the beach.
Cons: Mattress had very little support.
Location: Beach, restaurants, shopping. Ice cream, bike riding, kayaking.
We had a great time at Sanibel Moorings, very clean and great linen service. Very nice and helpful staff. Close to amenities, restaurants and shops. Our bed/mattress was a little too soft. Overall great experience and will definitely return. Also very dog friendly, although we did not take our dog this time.

Great place, great locationPosted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: Proximity to beach, cleanliness of the resort, accommodating staff
Location: We enjoyed meals from Island Cow and ice cream from Pinocchio's.
This was our first trip to Sanibel Island. We stayed for a long weekend in August. Three adults, two children (including a 4 month old). The condo and resort were both very clean. We loved the proximity to the beach and the option of a beautiful pool. The grounds are well maintained and the staff is friendly. The resort allowed us to check-in a little early and they had the crib ready to go that we requested prior to our arrival. We would definitely be recommending this resort and would love to come again.

Great for familiesPosted Jul 22, 2013
Pros: The location, the full kitchen, the grounds.
Cons: More beach umbrellas! Also, the brick walkways between buildings were oddly painful to walk on with bare feet, flip flops are recommended!
Location: JN. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, Tarpon Bay nature tours, parasailing, jet skis, and boat rentals on Ft. Myers Beach!
We stayed in a 2-bedroom condo and found it clean, comfortable, and in great shape. The full kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses, utensils, pots, pans, casserole dishes, even wine glasses and tupperware! We bought breakfast food and made sandwiches for the most part, but it was great to be able to make anything we wanted. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the grounds of the resort are gorgeous: they truly are a botanical garden with all sorts of wonderful plants and critters living in them. Although thankfully none of the lizards found their way into our rooms, I can imagine myself as a kid having a ball trying to catch them. The beach was well maintained and we always found chairs, but umbrellas were scarce. I thought it was annoying that beach towels were rentals only, but they were only $5 for the duration of the stay, so not unreasonable. We ended up using our shower towels instead and that was fine. They do have two small, clean pools on the property if you'd prefer to not swim in the Gulf. The water around Sanibel isn't very clear, especially in summer when we went, but the beach was lovely to walk along, pick up shells, or just sit and read.

Beautiful grounds; close to waterPosted Jun 27, 2013
Pros: We liked the proximity to the water and beautiful views.
Cons: The beds in the condo needed to be updated; they were very uncomfortable with hard mattresses.
Location: This was a good location with only a short drive to attractions, shops, and restaurants.
We stayed in a very nice condo; the place was clean, and we enjoyed being able to have some meals in the condo.

The abundance of botanicalsPosted Jun 26, 2013
Pros: The well thought out planning of the greenery, the friendliness of the overall staff, the beach grounds and the condo that we rented for 10 nights.
Cons: The couch in the living room needs to be re-stuffed. We didn't use it as a convertible, but used it as a sitting space for watching TV. Backs ached!
Location: Sanibel Beach is known for shelling and that is primarily what we came for besides the excellent Gulf swimming. The water was always warm.
We were amazed by the natural beauty surrounding the Sanibel Moorings. Everywhere we turned we smelled and saw tropical blooms! There were fruit trees, too--coconut, banana, mango! The 1 bedroom condo we had was well laid out, meticulously cleaned and the kitchen had top of the line appliances. We enjoyed sitting out on the screened in porch overlooking the well maintained gardens and this was welcomed on the afternoons when it rained very heavy. And the beach part of the property was only steps away and very clean! We were grateful for the free use of the beach chairs/chaises and umbrellas.
