Stayed in a 2 bed condo that we rented from a condo owner who couldn't go for his week. It was our first time on Sanibel so we didnt know what to expect. Having read that Casa Ybel was one of the first and best resorts on the Island we had great expectations. Arriving at the resort we were not...

Stayed in a condo time share (that my best friend swapped for) after not being in Sanibel for 5 years. Last visit to Casa Ybel was to attend a wedding so I knew I was coming to a classy place. Stayed the week after Labor Day week and it was very quiet, not many people on the beach or in...

We stayed here years ago and always wanted to go back. I am sorry to report that we were fairly disappointed in our stay, especially in the quality of our unit, which was a 1 bedroom and are the furthest from the pool and reception areas. All the buildings, including those in the common areas, seem to be in need...

This was our first time in Sanibel and the Casa Ybel Resort. We loved the resort as well as the island. The facilities are fantastic and well maintained. Every room does have a view of the Gulf. The rooms were very clean. The grounds are well groomed and manicured. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. We did not require...

We spent two nights at Casa Ybel and liked the setting at the beach and the beautiful pool. The room was more average and we did not really like the two queen beds in the bedroom as this was too small for the room. Also airco was quite loud and uncomfortable at night. Still the beauty of the location and...

We enjoyed a long weekend at Casa Ybel while attending a wedding at the resort. I can certainly understand why the bride and groom chose Casa Ybel! The resort's grounds are expansive and beautifully manicured; and, food and service at Casa Ybel's Thistle Lodge restaurant (which catered the wedding, and where we dined twice on our own) are excellent. Also,...

The resort is beautiful. The staff is friendly. We had a few issues with our room. They looked rather dated, but were clean and spacious.
