Awesome quaint resort!
Even with covid the resort was terrific! We had free breakfast brought to our rooms ( pre packed due to covid though fresh belgium waffles. The rooms are spacious and clean with full kitchen. The room faced the pool and the hot tub was perfect. We used the gas barbque on the property for one of the nights. We have access to the resort next door and we kayak and paddleboard without extra charge with 1 hour usage. Also the bikes were free to use on the property. We just had to bring them back by dusk. Most importantly steps to the beach with beach chairs and umbrellas included. We will be back!

Great weekend while staying safe!!!
We stayed for 2 days and had a great time! Everyone was so nice and friendly. Enjoyed the complimentary bikes so much. Beach chairs were separated for safety distance. The hotel followed all sanitary guidelines and safety guidelines and made us feel safe and welcome. We have booked our 4th of July weekend already. Can’t wait to be back!

Fabulous Time!
We had a great stay at Song of the Sea. It is located perfectly on the island and is right on the beach. The room was super clean and the bed really comfortable. It is nice and quiet there. We used the pool too and it was great. Breakfast is good for a continental type and is served in a lovely garden. You can use the paddle boards, bikes, etc. at their sister property right next door. I highly recommend staying here and we will definitely stay here again if we go back to Sanibel Island.
