I try to begin a review with a positive, but that’s hard to do when you’ve been awakened at 6:30am by a housekeeping cart or carts being wheeled out of their storage room, which is also the laundry room and abuts our room, 130. This is followed an hour later by loudly

Dear tropicalia Thank you for your feedback on TripAdvisor. On a positive note, thank for your compliment regarding our recent remodeling of the hotel. Please accept my apologies regarding the other challenges during your stay with us. Occasional noise can be encountered as our rooms are indeed outer facing, however I will be sure to address your feedback with our Housekeeping manager as every attempt should be made to keep any noise to a minimum. I'm disappointed to read that you were not served at 9:01pm for dinner in our restaurant, our kitchen does close at 9:00pm, however our team should make every possible effort to accommodate any late patrons. I will personally address this with our Food & Beverage manager. Please accept my apologies again, clearly we missed the mark during this stay. I have attempted to reach out to you directly, leaving a voice message. Please don't hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do further to turn your experience around. Kind Regards Matthew G - General Manager

We stayed 7 nights the 2nd week of March. The photos and reviews of Sanibel Island Beach Resort do not do it justice, nor do some of the other reviews. Our room was simple but very clean and efficient and housekeeping kept it looking great day after day. The tiki bar, pool

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The outdoor pool, Tiki Bar, and access to the private beach were awesome. Plenty of lounge chairs available on the beach and there are nice cabanas and hammocks near the pool.

Hi Mike S Thanks for reaching out on TripAdvisor. Yes - our pool is heated. Sandollar is our on-site restaurant, open for breakfast & dinner. We serve a traditional breakfast and for dinner, great steaks, seafood and cocktails. Our tiki bar offers lunch from 11am-5pm. Our tiki bar and pool area was renovated in 2018. Thank you Matthew G - General Manager

Construction was underway when we were there, but was not a disruption. Keurig yes. Only 2 caffeinated, 2 decaf. 1 hammock? maybe 2. Nice seating around pool. IDK about bikes.

We went Friday after Thanksgiving and they were to start the construction on Monday, closing the pool and pool bar area plus the rooms surrounding the pool area. I'd call the hotel directly as I did just before we left to make sure about the construction timeline.

"Room #19 was quiet. The management tends to put families with kids in the back buildings to ensure peace and quiet for the other buildings."
"If you cannot do stares, request a first floor."
"Upstairs, poolside room offered privacy and seaside ambiance."
"Go somewhere else"
"The beach view is wonderful back the side areas are quiet."
