Having stayed on Sanibel Island, at many different places, we liked Sanibel Moorings the best. We will continue to stay for our vacations. The pools and the laundry facilities are rarely overcrowded even when there are no vacancies.

From booking our vacation to the final checkout staff made our stay a most pleasant experience. The room which offers a gulf front view was clean and ready for our move in. Our requests were handled with care and efficiency. The addition of a beachfront tour complements the existing shell and garden tours. The total package of facility and staff...

I have stayed at the Moorings at least five times now and I can say that I have no desire to stay anywhere else! the location is perfect as it is far enough away from the crowds, but close enough to get to any restaurant on the island with a short drive. The staff is always willing to help with...

Our family spent a week (Easter break) at Sanibel Mooring in a second floor Gulf front unit. Everyone enjoined the stay. The grandparents spent much of the time reading on the screen porch overlooking the gulf -- sunrise to sunset -- with morning and evening breaks for long walks. The younger folks and grandchild spent a lot of time at...

Only wish we had spent more time here! Bikes, kayaks, flowers and, of course, the beach. A lovely place for both families and couples. An added bonus is that you do not have to rent your condo for a full week (although you should). Most places on Sanibel require a full week rental.

This condo unit comfortably fit six adults. It provided comfy bedding, clean towels when we needed them, plenty of space to relax. The kitchen was well stocked and the lanai provided an excellent gulf view.

We have stayed at Sanibel Moorings twice (2 different units). The 1st floor unit had small little ants, mostly by the bathroom sink - so gross!). The 4th floor unit (#422) had no bugs, but was in need of a thorough cleaning. Both units had areas that needed to be dusted (window shades, ceiling fans, light fixtures). Floor layouts are...

We decided on Sanibel Moorings for our vacation. It was peaceful and conveniently located. They offered lots of amenities during our stay. The botanical gardens are gorgeous. Our room was recently updated and loved the kitchen. Enjoyed lots of beach time. The Management Staff was responsive to questions and or concerns that we had.

“Sanibel Moorings is designed with very few Gulf front rooms, which seems rather a shame for a beach resort. I would strongly recommend a Gulf front unit for ambiance and a shore feel (and for quiet, a second floor unit) rather than the units that are (rather generously) labelled as garden views. ”
