There was no knives except bread and butter knaves. Could not cut breakfast bread and other items with them. Had to go out and buy one to cut with. Did not replace coffee in the room.

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.

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.

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.

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The outside of the property was very nice, but the rooms themselves were outdated.

Sanibel Serenity

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!
