Positive Reviews

Great location

The location of this resort consistently scores top marks among reviews of this property. Guests have loved being so close to the beach and have appreciated the direct access. There's a decent selection of restaurants nearby and Cape Coral and Fort Myers are within reasonable driving distance.

Friendly service

Guests have appreciated the standard of service here. The staff is said to offer a warm welcome and guests mention that they were offered lots of useful information in terms of what to see and do while on Sanibel Island. Overall, it appears unlikely that you will encounter any issues in this area.

Relaxing atmosphere

The atmosphere is one of the highlights here. Guests have found the layout and general vibe of the resort offer a laid back feel and have consistently enjoyed the amenities on offer. The pool and tennis courts, in particular, have been enjoyed by guests.

Negative Reviews

Condo quality can vary

The condos typically attract great feedback but reviews indicate that as the condos are individually owned, standards can vary. It does appear unlikely that you will be disappointed but there is a chance that you will be allocated a condo that is not quite up to scratch.

No housekeeping service

Guests note that there is no housekeeping service and you will be required to take out trash yourself. While this isn't a big issue, it is perhaps not what you want to be doing while on holiday. To change linens and towels, you will need to go to the front desk.

May find sofa beds uncomfortable

A minor point and one which will only affect people who are taking advantage of the full occupancy rate in the condos but guests do tend to find the sofabeds uncomfortable. They are likely to be okay for children but may prove disappointing to adults.
