Favorite resort on Sanibel Island thus far! Been to Casa Ybel several times now and the staff has always been more than accommodating. The units are clean, spacious, and all in good proximity to the main resort area. The kitchens are nice and the screen porches are a perfect place to dine and watch the waves roll in. For a...

We stayed at Casa Ybel for 2 nights in the beginning of May 2013. Beautiful property! When we checked in and got to our room on the top floor we weren’t thrilled with our view (trees blocking our view of the water), so I called the front desk and they were happy to give us the keys to another room...

I have spent three wonderful days with my nine year old son at Casa Ybel. The location is just perfect, very quiet and relaxed with direct access to the wonderful beach. We got up at six in the morning one day and were rewarded with lots of different shells and two dolphins swimming by very close to the beach. We...

We ended up here as every other place that looked decent was booked and we didn't have a reservation anywhere. It was one of the most expensive options on the island, but was top notch across the board.

Fabulous staff, great amenities. We enjoyed listening to the surf from our balcony. Rooms were very comfortable. Great beach access. Loved the convenience of renting bikes at the hotel in order to visit Ding Darling National Park and the lighthouse. Great lunches / happy hour at the pool and great dining at the Thistle Inn

Fort Myers beach really didn't have any resort that was really nice except for The Pink Shell. We left Pink Shell for the day to check out Captiva and Sanibel. The restaurants on these islands are MUCH better than what the Pink Shell area had to offer. There is a TON of traffic on these islands. Best bet, walk everywhere...Crazy...

Casa Ybel is beautiful. Beautiful grounds, nice pool, great pool bar, great beach. The condo's are a bit small, but clean, nicely kept and they all face the ocean. It really is a beautiful place that we return to every year. It's a great resort for kids. Lots of room to play and not worry about them. Volleyball, shuffle board,...

Right off the bat the grounds of Casa Ybel are beautiful. You cross over a lovely bridge with gorgeous flowers throughout the resort. The individual buildings are set up nicely with every unit having a water view I think. I made a reservation for the four of us for a one-bedroom place that would have 2 queen beds but was...

Every year we go to Casa Ybel over Winter Break, and since it was re-done after the most recent hurricane, the facilities are nice, bright, clean. Everything you could want is in each unit, there is no need to buy anything but your food. The pool is huge, with plenty of lounge chairs. The island is loaded with great shopping,...

I am here now and initial impressions are that it is a great resort. It is clean, welcoming and has that manicured American feel. The views all around are stunning. The appartments look very well maintained and have a luxury look. Disappointingly The longer I am here however, the more holes I find to not give it 5 stars. Firstly...
