Thank you for the excellent review. 70% of Sanibel Island is a natural wildlife preserve. We hope to see you again soon.

Excellent location of beach. Fun place for kids to run around. Staff was very helpful. Slightly older buildings but views from balcony were outstanding. Our oven was slightly dirty so difficult to cook. Our kids loved the experience and we will be back.

Christmas at Casa Ybel

We spent six days and five nights at Casa Ybel. The grounds and facilities are beautiful and very peaceful. The pool is great, tennis courts nice and the grounds are pristine. There's a nice, peaceful, quiet tropical vibe at the property. Our one bedroom place was nice, and it was great to have a kitchen. We had a beach view room and the screened in balcony was a great place to chill and look at the ocean. The couch in the living area was very uncomfortable which was okay since we were outside most of the time. Occasionally there was a weird sort of sewer-like smell near the tub/toilet area in the bathroom. Something you sort of resent in a very expensive hotel room. The staff was friendly and helpful and there are lots of nice amenities available. Overall this was a great property. One minor warning: food at Coconuts the poolside bar/grill is way overpriced for the quality of food. It was $29.00 for a small (think plastic medium-sized cup) smoothie, one order of undercooked French fries and 4 shrimp on limp lettuce. Just saying...

Not well maintained. Living on their laurels

Pros: nothing really
Cons: see above
Location: Many Local restaurants closed--even over the weekend
Dirty bathroom. Dirty dishes and no paper towels on arrival. Stuck pocket doors in bathrooms so that there is no privacy All beach chairs (rented by guests per day or by week) are removed by staff at the too early time of 5pm, well before dark and low tide--forcing us to leave the beach (the reason we vacationed ) far too early. Must turn in wet towels to stand by pool by 5 pm or carry them around --not fun at all Should spray for no-see-ums and insects by the pool/Coconuts bar/restaurant
