My husband and I stayed in gulf front condo for one week and were joined for a few days with daughter and granddaughter. Unit 512 was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The grounds were fabulous - it's a botanical garden. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We chose Sanibel Moorings because of the high rating on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed! The condo is beautiful, with a very well equipped kitchen, and even a supply of games. The grounds are gorgeous. We didn't have a chance to try the canoes or kayaks, but we did rent bicycles and had wonderful rides on the bike paths...

We have stayed at the Moorings several times. They have well appointed apartments, beautiful grounds, pool, beach, and docks are all a few steps away. They have lovely plants of all different kinds growing on the grounds.

All the units are an easy walk to the beach and pool, and all are surrounded by tropical gardens. We took advantage of the garden tour with a female...

My husband, two teen kids, and I stayed in condo #312 (2nd floor facing parking lot). The condo was very clean and in great condition and had everything we needed for a great stay. The pool and beach were just a short walk away and both were just perfect. The folks before left a piece of candy in the corner...

The condos were beautiful with everything you need to feel at home. 2 bedrooms 2baths. 50 feet to the beach where you find sea shells everywhere. The beach was endless. We walked 45 min in one direction and did not see the end. Beautiful pools, bike rentals so you can explore the great bike paths. A morning talk on shells...

Our experience was very positive. The condo was recently redone very tastefully with a kitchen opening up to the main room, a giant tv, and comfortable furniture. The beach was out the door and around the corner. The pool was right there too. Will definitely come back to this condo. Only drawback was the very noisy gas leaf blowers which...

“Exhaust fans in both bathrooms should be checked - very noisy. Toilet in master bath should be checked - the actuating lever sometimes sticks and the water keeps running.”
