Kind of disappointing. Poorly managed.
Very nice location, people at the front desk were pleasant and helpful. OKAY - THE DISAPPOINTMENT - we had dinner the first night at the hotel, and was VERY LEWT DOWN. Hostess was "snippy" and not helpful, stood there for almost 15 minutes at the front of a restaurant that was only about 20% occupied. Was sat down outside and greeted by a nice server (Nicole). When we ordered our meal, its took over 30 minutes to prepare something pretty simple - came out and had to ask for EVERYTHING - utensils, butter, etc. There was also no salt and pepper or any condiments on the table. The manager was nowhere to be found, and the server was trying (Nicole) but it was painfully obvious she was NOT trained at all and no one running the restaurant seemed to care. It will be our last meal at the establishment. Also - the pool water was VERY hot; at the adult pool, kids were diving and noisy - at the adult pool. Place has VERY poor lighting, and if you book a room through Hotels.com, you are stuck in room far away from the main clubhouse. Grounds are very poorly lit and signage is not great. There appears to be no oversight by management (and worse is - they simply do not seem to care). I am at a complete loss as to why no one else saw the same problems we did.

Overall this is a nice resort with a fantastic location on Sanibel Island. You get a lot of freebies like rental bikes (they have kids trailers too) kayaks, paddle boards and tennis. Hotel is clean overall and our room was large, a two bedroom condo. The ceilings were a problem though as you had the constant noise of people walking above you. Pools were nice but generally crowed. The beach is very nice but it does face south so you do not get a sunset at this resort. I would stay here again but I would ask to be on the top floor.

Nice stay
The AC in the bedroom was not working properly and there was a huge temperature difference between the main room and the bedroom - we had to leave the door open to get air. Also, the beach and pool towels were all the way down by the main lobby. It was inconvinent to have to walk all the way down there when we were in one of the furthest buildings away, yet steps from our beach access point.

Not the first time staying here. Always nice. My only not so great comment was that there was nobody around to set out beach chairs but that could be because of the weather. Very helpful and friendly staff.
