Expert Review

Established in 1895, this quaint resort facing 550 feet of beachfront has welcomed guests to Sanibel for over a century, and echoes of its history linger in elements like the grassy croquet court, still enjoyed today by families and groups. Choose to stay in one of 51 hotel rooms and seven cottages (we recommend the latter); accommodations vary but features include handy kitchenettes or kitchens, pleasant screened porches or balconies, and island-style décor. A blast from a conch shell announces dinner at this old-world Florida style resort, where fine dining awaits at one of the few restaurants in the area with a dress code (collared shirts and dress pants for men). There’s also a library, pool, and tennis courts, not to mention the glorious beach.
