To help you get started on planning your Sanibel Island vacation, below are some of the most well-known Sanibel Island hotels that fall under such mentioned categories.
Family Sanibel Island Hotels
Sundial Beach Resort: This hotel is said to be the largest resort on Sanibel Island. It lacks intimacy though, but of all the available family Sanibel Island hotels, this is but the one with lots to keep families occupied, from a palm studded, beachside pool area to a complimentary marine biology programs and a small ecology center with a touch tank.
Sanibel’s Seaside Inn: According to certain Sanibel Island hotels reviews, this comfortable and friendly Key West-style establishment enjoys a tranquil location near the island’s southeastern end. It has duplex, 1960s-style cottages that are spacious and brightly furnished one bedroom apartments, and if you can do without a kitchen, you can have the beachfront hotel rooms whose screened porches face the Gulf.
Romance Sanibel Island Hotels
Song of the Sea: Popular with Europeans, this beachside inn offers motel-like efficiencies and one bedroom suites with plantation-style shutters behind sliding glass doors opening to screened porches. Unlike in other romance Sanibel Island hotels, you don’t need to expect a lot of extra space in the suites, whose bedrooms are barely large enough to hold their king-size beds.
Adventure Sanibel Island Hotels
Sanibel Inn: At this beachside inn, a back to nature theme prevails. You can find the room décor and the grounds planted with native Florida foliage to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The rooms of this hotel are fully equipped, spacious and clean, and all have screened porches to keep mosquitoes out.
Luxury Travel Sanibel Island Hotels
Sanibel Harbour Resort and Spa: This is but one of the well-known Sanibel Island hotels that are sport oriented. It is secluded, but the main hotel and the boutique style inn are both modern and luxurious throughout. Just like the other Sanibel Island hotels, all of the rooms and most of the condominium apartments at this place have wonderful water and island views from their balconies, including the spectacular sunsets over Sanibel. If tennis is your game, this hotel has 8 clay courts and a 5,000-seat stadium that has hosted Davis Cup matches.
Beach Sanibel Island Hotels
Diamond Head Beach Resort: This is a luxurious, 12-story and beachside building that has comfortable one-bedroom apartments. As one of the well-known beach Sanibel Island hotels, the beachfront apartments of Diamond Head Beach Resort are the most appealing, but every unit has a view. Also, all rooms were renovated and there’s a full-service restaurant indoors.
Gay and Lesbian Sanibel Island Hotels
Casa Ybel Sanibel Island Resort: One of the best Sanibel Island hotels, this all condo property sits on 23 acres of beachfront property on the historic site of the island’s first beachfront hotel, the Thistle Lodge. Here, you can enjoy wonderful cuisine and magnificent Gulf views. Also, with upstairs bedrooms, the town house-style units provide more privacy than most Sanibel Island hotels and condominiums.
