    I loved this quiet place, very relaxed, free of doing whatever you want to do, we could rest and have fun 100%.

    I liked the closeness of the beach. It is a very nice place well worth the money. It is like a home away from home.

    Nothing. I liked everything about the hotel.

    Great place to stay, but unfortunately not for snorkeling since the ocean is not clear. In the pool there was definitely too much chloride.

    Fabulous

    It was a nice condo and liked the screen porches and easy to move around.

    I wish they had umbrellas for the beach. With flying couldn't bring your own. Chairs were great.

    The friendliness of everyone. The view and closeness to the beach was excellent. The condo was well equipped and clean. We will be back.

    You can hear upstairs guests ESP if condo does not have carpet.

    Nos encanto la cercania a la playa, la seguridad para que nuestros hijos jugaran y estuvieran dentro del mar. La experiencia de todos excavar y buscar la mejor conchita. Y lo mejor: estar juntos en familia lejos de la rutina y el bullicio de la ciudad. Nos fascino !!! Ideal para ir con ninos.

    None.

    Everything! excellent location, services, amenities,,, I will come back anytime!

    Not beach towels. When we travel to hotels such as Sanibel Arms West, we do not pack beach towels. When advised, we had to leave the island to find 6 beach towels... an expense that we did not count on. No renting of bicycles for small children. We would have loved to go for a bike ride but our girls 6 and 7 were not able to obtain a bicycle their size...

    We were a few steps away from the beach. I like that the the outside was screened in making it more comfortable to eat or sit outside.The unit was a descent size,not huge.The beach was not crowded at all making it easy to find a spot during Spring Break.

    The unit we had did not have a hair dryer. when you are on the lower level, it is annoying when the guests above you has no regard for people below them.

    This was our third time at saw, although the last time was 11 years ago. We found our condo to be very clean and well maintained. Our only complaint was the lack of basics that would have made life easier, things such as plastic cups that could be used at the pool or on the beach, beach towels, and basic kitchen items such as trash bags, and small storage bags. These are small things that are hard for a family flying into Sanibel to bring, and a waste to buy for just a few days.

    Good

    The property was well maintained and the beach access was very close. The unit was a two bedroom with a nice layout and ample amenities.

    The staff (Management company) seemed unconcerned with reported issues. The refrigerator was not cooling properly and the staff told me to wait 24 hours before it would cool properly. The next day it was the same, we had to get ice to keep our things cool. It did not cool properly for the next three days, the following day we needed to leave. The WiFi did not work. I complained multiple times and was told that the service was spotty. I was told since no one else was complaining it must be my fault. Two days later the cable truck came by to fix the problem. If you are planning to work remotely, this place does not have reliable internet service and the wifi is weak, at most two bars. Also, the cell service on this part of the island is one bar weak.

    Very good

    Liked that SAW has nightly rental when weekly or monthly rental is the most common in Sanibel. Liked location right on the east side beach. Liked the caged pool area with access from back door/lanai off of the master bedroom. Liked that the condo has new tile throughout and no carpet.

    Did not like the motel feel of the place. Somewhat plain, old, dated. Didn't like that people were constantly checking in and out but that's what you get with a nighfy rental place. Didn't like that there were no restaurants within walking distance. Only wow factor is location.

    Beautiful spacious rooms. The best location, steps from the beach.

    Going rate booking directly through the condo is out of our price range.

    I liked the two story buildings with no high rises in sight. Sanibel is a nice quiet area

    Wifi reception was iffy. We stayed a week and never found an exceptional restaurant on the island. Everything was just so-so.
