My family had an awesome stay at Sanibel Moorings. The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. Close proximity to the beach was great. Sanibel is an awesome place for those looking to kick back and relax.

Dear tmharder1976; I want to take to time not to advertise Sanibel Mooring Resort concerning your review, but to recognize the monumental date that you mentioned.

Enjoyed our stay. Close to beach and pool. Great places to eat very close. Bring your own beach towels. Loved the screen porch and the use of chairs and umbrella at beach. Kids had a blast. Would love to go back

We had a great time in Sanibel! Location is fantastic, the beach is great and the unit was nice. The room was dirty when we arrived (bathroom was disgusting) but that was resolved. Our unit's kitchen was without any essentials - so make sure your salt, sugar, spices, oil, etc. are with you if you plan to cook. All in...

Our trip to Sanibel and Sanibel Moorings was more than we could ever ask for. We have rented many homes/condos in different locations and this was one of the best ever. Every amenity covered. Spotless condo. Beautifully decorated. Just splendid!
