Really enjoyed the motel side with a view of the water, saw dolphins every day. Close to the beach was great! Staff upon check in was excellent. Pool was most excellent too... We really enjoyed our stay and I have recommended to others already. Thank you for a great vacation destination... When we come back to the Sanibel area, we will be booking with you all again.

Very nice so close to the beach. Grounds are very nice. A bit out dated when it comes to the rooms need a bit of updating when it comes to fixtures in the rooms. I know it’s close to the beach but carpet and bathrooms need to have an upgrade. Overall will be back had a great time on the bikes and beach nice family vacation.
