Absolutely loved our stay
We rented a suite for a girls weekend. It was perfect. Grilled outside on evening, loved that the grill was under a canopy with lights, a fan, and table with chairs. Loved the location, and the office personnel. We will come back. I have recommended it to several other people.

Good 6.0
Ideal... if you like smokers
On the surface, this seems like an ideal place to stay on Sanibel. It’s very easy to get to and conveniently located near stores and restaurants. We loved the Polynesian theme and tropical vegetation. Our unit was spacious and comfortable with a nice, modernized kitchen. We loved having a barbecue and one of the available outdoor dining tables and lounging by the pool. Really, the only major downside was the abundance of smokers which this place seems to attract. Most of the units are connected by a small deck with a couple chairs and a table (with ash trays). It seem like these were almost always occupied by people who were smoking. Sadly, that turned the tropical oasis into a ”coffin nail corridor” that we had to hold our breath and scurry through as quickly as possible. Our last night there, someone checked into the unit beside us and was smoking right outside our door! Apparently, there is no courtesy or rule about smoking 20 feet away from someone else’s living space. Like I said, this place might be ideal for people who smoke, but if you don’t, STAY AWAY!
