Grounds and amenities were perfect. Lights outside and fire pit closes too early.

Landscaping was beautiful and well maintained. Views overlooking grounds, pool, and the Gulf of Mexico were awesome. Easy access to the white sand beach. Hotel supplied beach lounge chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Kayaks, paddle boards, and bicycles are available for your use. Staff will assist launching the water toys with you and remove them from beach when done. Overall the property was well maintained and serviced. The only thing I would suggest is to improve quality/selection of food in their on-site restaurant called Dante’s. It was typical bar type food. We were hoping for a fine dining experience. Seeing the clientele that this property attracts, a fine dining restaurant would do well here. Nevertheless we will be returning as overall experience was wonderful.

Greetings Edward, Thank you so much for the objective review and for giving us suggestions how we can improve our service for other guests. As we take many cues from our reviews, I will pass your mentions along to management as we continually adjust and work to exceed the expectations of every guest every time. Thank you for recognizing the tremendous amount of work our three landscapers, yes three, put in every day to keep our properties looking fresh and appealing. Our Recreation crew has recently added a Naturist on staff to coordinate beach walks and guided bicycle rides during the week and weekends to assist guests in learning more about Sanibel and our wildlife. As part of the resort recreation fee, all guests of the Inns of Sanibel have access to The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club with member rates on golf and complimentary use of on site clay tennis courts and driving range. We provide use of bicycles, kayaks, and paddleboards, with beach loungers and umbrellas set up daily from 8am to 5:30 pm. We have guided nature walks and bicycle tours. Guests can also enjoy unlimited exchanges of our resort beach towels, unmetered WiFi for video streaming, plus parking and a daily newspaper delivery. Thanks again for the lovely review and we will be anticipating your next arrival for more sun and fun on Sanibel. Regards, Jason Trimble Reservations Manager The Inns of Sanibel

The outside of the property was very nice, but the rooms themselves were outdated.

Even though our trip was cut short a day due to travel delays, our stress melted away once we saw the view of the gulf from our room. Every need was anticipated from getting set up on the beach to having a pack and play set up in the room for us on arrival. Will definitely be coming back for our next visit to the island!

All the staff were gracious and accommodating!

Pros: The staff couldn't do enough for you, everyone was so pleasant!
Cons: When we checked out there was a "resort fee" of $25.00a day for the days we stayed. For all of the free anemities...bikes, beach chairs/towels, etc. advertised... when we booked with Travelocity we were told it was included in the daily rate. The resort did remove the fee when we gave them our printout from Travelocity. Just Be Aware of Extra Fees!
Location: You will never have a day of nothing to do, wonderful Island!!
