Great Vacation
Great, historic hotel. Beautiful beach! I would agree with other reviews that the free breakfast was lacking and mostly bread and pastries. It was also strange that it does not start until 8am. Especially in an area where people are up very early to go shelling on the beaches. I don't expect much from a continental breakfast, but they didn't have many of the normal options. Each day was several types of bread for toasting, a sliced fruit mix, mini donuts and pastries. The only option for protein was hard boiled eggs which was disappointing. I was also surprised that the cleaning staff does not clean dishes when they service the room. We've stayed at several hotels with kitchens and have always returned to a fully serviced room. They didn't even put the dishes away that I had cleaned and were probably dry by the time they came to the room. Maybe I have just been lucky when staying at other hotels, it was just a surprise. Overall, I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone. It was a Great vacation.

Overnight getaway
Best resort on Sanibel. I have stayed at numerous resorts over the years on Sanibel-Captiva and this is the best overall. Everything was perfect. Clean room, great views, quiet private beach, small pool. Great restaurant on site too. Great for relaxing and getting away from it all but leave the kids at home because this is meant to be a peaceful place and the pool is pretty small for children.
