Song of the Sea, Sanibel
Just fair
I felt that the only thing that made this property worth it’s expensive price tag was the location. The property needs updating, painting, landscaping. Just look at it’s sister property next door to see the difference. However, the room was ok, beds comfortable, breakfast pretty good.

Nice hotel
We enjoyed our stay at Song of the Sea. The room was comfortable and even had a frig and little kitchen. The screened balcony overlooking the pool was very nice. It was only a short walk to the beach. The free breakfast was fine for us but someone who would prefer eggs and bacon would be disappointed. My only complaint was that they did not have enough beach chairs on the beach so one had to either bring one's own or go down early and drape a towel over a chair to reserve it.

Very Good8.0
Comfortable, quiet place to stay. Great breakfast, nice pool and spa tub and plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach. My only negative comment is if you want to use the free kayaks or paddleboards, they are difficult to get. They are located at the larger property next store and they are first come, first serve with no time limit.

Great place to throughly enjoy the gulf coast sea and sunshine. Fourth year we have returned. Only negative - ceramic floors need a thorough cleaning.
