Beautiful resort, 30 min drive from Sanibel
Posted Sep 13, 2016
The resort was large and beautiful. We didn't get to enjoy all the amenities as the beach was our main focus. We were there during a very slow time so it seemed extra quiet. We stayed in the tennis villas (per our deal via Expedia). The room itself was fine and we could have accommodated our 2 kids easily as there was a full working kitchen and living area along with a porch. However, we were right next to a court that was used a lot during our time, and since the resort was not full, it would have been nice to have been given a room in another spot or at least not directly facing a court. The beach has chairs, towels, and umbrellas available (at no additional fee) which was SO nice. The downside was that we didn't realize how long of a drive it would be into the main part of Sanibel (having never visited the area at all.) So each time we wanted to eat or do a non-beach activity, we drove about 30 minutes into Sanibel. This was a bummer and I guess we could have figured this out before booking, but just didn't realize. So, if you're more interested in eating on property, it is so ideal because you really don't have to leave.
