Positive Reviews

Lovely hotel, quiet location

Song of the Sea on Sanibel Island in South Florida is located very close to the beach along the Gulf of Mexico. The location is picturesque and quiet offering guests a peaceful and relaxing stay here. Immaculately maintained, the resort offers views of the ocean from many of its rooms. The resort is small and intimate; with just 30 rooms so that guests never get the feeling of it being crowded.

Great amenities

The property has its own pool and Jacuzzi and other activities; plus there are partnerships with sports and social clubs that guests can take advantage of. Guests can take advantage of discounted golfing and other activities at some of the clubs that have tie-ups with the resort. The complimentary al fresco breakfast and the complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival are appreciated by guests. Free bikes and kayaks as well as beach umbrellas and chairs are other features guests have appreciated.

Helpful, friendly staff

The service at the Song of the Sea resort receives mostly positive reviews from guests. The staff is attentive and appears to be quick to respond to customer feedback.

Negative Reviews

No restaurant or bar

Though breakfast is a part of the deal, the resort does not have its own bar or restaurant. So guests either have to manage other meals in their room kitchenette or have to step out for lunch or dinner.


The resort is rather expensive, felt some guests. Some guests also thought that the hotel's policy of charging guest credit cards and also putting a hold on it for that amount was unfair.

Appliances need with updating

Some of the ACs and kitchen alliances are old or noisy felt some guests.
