Quiet & close to beach ... but we will not return
Posted Aug 19, 2016
We visited Sanibel for 3 days and wanted a water view. Our 2nd floor room had large screened balcony overlooking parking lot ... and then we could see the beach/water. Would have preferred a higher level room for a better water view, but at least we could see the water. This resort has a bar and restaurant, pools, etc all on site so if you want to just stay in one place it's convenient. We didn't use the resort facilities except the beach. We used kitchen for breakfast, snacks, drinks (full size fridge with icemaker) and drove to area restaurants for dinner. We had our own bikes. Our main issue was the quality of the room. Units are privately owned, and each owner can decorate and furnish their unit as they see fit. Ours had dated, worn furnishings & decor. Kitchen utensils, pots/pans were low quality, old & worn. The decor was minimal. Overall condition of the unit was dated, not very clean and in need of major facelift. Master bath shower had lots of black mildew and faucet didn't work properly. Bathrooms need thorough cleaning & fresh paint. PROS - rooms were spacious and had lots of light. Balcony was large. Master BR kingsize bed was comfortable. Dresser drawers clean. Plenty of closet space. Stackable washer/dryer in unit. AC & ceiling fans worked well. Screened balcony. Room had plenty of (nice fluffy) towels and some Keurig coffee pods upon arrival. They only cleaned our room the 2nd day and restocked towels (not 3rd day). Never restocked coffee.
