Everything Not enough to do at night
The room was big and a nice view. I didn't like any of the restaurants, way overpriced for IHOP quality food. The restaurants were dirty.
Beautiful property. Wonderful place to celebrate 20 anniversary. The South End was rather sleepy this time of year. I would stay on the North End next time.
Das Haus besticht durch seine ausgezeichnete Lage. Zum Strand muss man nur über die Straße, dann hat man einen wunderbaren weißen Sand strand mit nur wenigen Besuchern, das Baden bei Sonnenuntergang war paradiesisch. Auch die Hotelanlage ist hübsch angelegt, auf der eine Seite der Strand, auf der anderen ein kleiner Hafen. Kleines Minus: Die Zimmer könnten nach 25 Jahren eine grundlegende Renovierung gebrauchen. Durch die natur rundherum wird man aber gründlich entschädigt.
Beautiful grounds. Close to the beach. The room was uncomfortable, air noisy, TV did not work well
Found great shells on the beach right out front. Awesome pool. Free bikes and kayaks. They set up chairs and umbrellas every morning. Love the beds and having a large fridge and oven in room. Very nice staff. Nice spot on the island.
I did like the closeness to beach, also that all the amenities were included like the use of bikes, kayak, paddleboard and also a lot of beach umbrellas and chairs on the beach. Very quiet place to stay. The staff were a lit of bit rude. We were there early at12 and chech in was at 4pm and check out at 11, they did nothing to try to gave us a room earlier we wait for our room until 2pm.
The chairs and umbrellas on the beach where great! Always out on time! The use of their bikes was great, we used then every day! The beach was beautiful and very clean! Was disappointed in the cleanliness of the room. Upon arrival our door trim was broken, dust stuck to trim and hair from another guest. Food stuck on "clean" silverware in drawer. Walls need to be painted, dirty walls, chipped paint, mildew on curtains and a musty smell. The bikes needed some matinees, oil the squeaky parts and fix the broken baskets. Only one bike with a basket and it was broken. Not sure if we would stay again. The price would have to be quite a bit less than we paid. Stayed in many supper 8 and other Cheeper places that where much nicer.
Location, view, pool, beach, facilities, extras Our short stay
I was more than impressed with accomodations at The Song Of the Sea. The room was always meticulously cleaned everyday we were there. The continental breakfast was great, we never left hungry. The sister resort next door had a restaurant in it which provides a diverse menu. The food was good at a reasonable price. The beach in front of the resort always had beach chairs available. Everynight we went out to catch the beautiful sunsets. We actually got to see manta rays and dolphins swimming in the water. I would definately recommend this resort to anyone that is thinking about visiting Sanibel Island.
The staff were so extremely friendly and helpful to any question or request we had. Thank you Katie for the awesome waffles...we will miss you every morning! One warning...Sanibel Island has a speed trap set at the bottom of the bridge so do NOT exceed 30 miles an hour! The is no opportunity to slow down when exiting the bridge so start braking early.
this hotel is a very small and charming place to stay.the staff is very friendly and helpful.the beach is very private and a short walk from the rooms.the rooms are very clean and quiet.the sister hotel right next door has a walking path and is larger with more amenities like a bar and restaurant.there are many small and quaint restaurants within 10 minutes driving time to choose all varieties of food so drinks and food are close and you never have to leave island.the pool and grounds are well maintained and chairs and umbrellas placed on beach for you at no cost.this is a great place for relaxing and a bargain for the price.you will be happy you stayed here,
This was a nice quiet hotel on the beach. The location was perfect just a short distance to the lighthouse and not too far from restaurants on Periwinkle. The breakfast each morning was nice and the staff was friendly and helpful. The free bikes were especially nice and we used them everyday. The only cons were the bedroom was very small. If you are claustrophobic this could be a real problem. Also when the person upstairs used the bathroom, especially at night the sound was very loud. We found ourselves being woken several times in the night. Maybe an upstairs cottage would not have this problem. The hotel is in need of updating but it is clean. Overall, this is a nice place to stay in Sanibel.
We had the most wonderful and relaxing vacation. Song of the Sea is the perfect place for that quiet getaway, and very close to all the fun restaurants & activities on Sanibel. The staff was absolutely SUPER and attended to all our needs. The hotel is older, but very clean and well kept. The beach access is perfect from the resort - with nice chairs and umbrellas. The pool and spa was a perfect spot to rest after a day at the beach - all kept spotless. We were mostly impressed with the quiet and serenity of Song of the Sea. Loved the high quality bedding and bath items.
My wife and I loved this place. Very clean, shower pressure was great, breakfast was great and did I say the place was clean. The only thing I was disappointed in was we stayed in the only section that didn't look directly to the water. Other than that, great place to stay. Chairs were put on the beach every morning. Staff was really friendly.
We had a very relaxing vacation. Our room was very nice. The staff was excellent. Song of the Sea was small (30 rooms) and we met people from all over the country. We had a lot of fun shelling. Swimming, shelling, and shopping. Great time !!!
We stayed 6-1 thru 6-6-10 The staff was excellent, very nice great to talk with and helpful. Beds were not the best. We were wondering if the economy had anything to do with why they couldnt purchase a new matress. Food was OK, very convienent. Rooms were cleaned everyday. Overall a ggod place to stay.
We booked this from the pictures and reviews on travelocity and it was perfect, exactly as shown and review. The staff is great and we had comp breakfast every morning plus a comp bottle of wine in our room when we arrived. Loved the screened porch.
The pool and pool area were beautiful, as was the beach. It was very quiet, room was big, and the beds were comfortable. Continental breakfast was great, and served on real tableware!! Large, screened balconies would've been great for sitting out on and enjoying the scenery if the weather had cooperated. I have no complaints about SOS, and hope to some day return.
My husband and I came here for our honeymoon over July 4th - it was wonderful! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They have bikes available to rent (fun!) and the rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast each morning was an added bonus! Short walk to the beach. Quiet, relaxing and homey. Fireworks were shot off from the beach on the other side of the island and it was totally worth it to take a sunset fireworks cruise - many places will pick you up right in front of the hotel (so you can avoid the tolls on the bridge).
We were not impressed with the Song of the Seas. Our floor was dirty (even after she 'cleaned' our room and our bedspread was dirty and stained. The staff was great. We loved the island.. wish our hotel would of been nice.. we would of stayed another night.
Resort was not a big fancy place, but was smaller and quieter which was perfect for myself and teenage daughter! There was a mix of all types of guests from young couples, to families and retired couples. Everything you needed was right there at the resort or a short bike ride away. We loved the availability to take out a bike any time during the day. The resort staff were friendly and always helpful. The beach was clean and full of shells, just beautiful! The pool was also relaxing when the beach got too warm. It was a nice size with plenty of chairs and a pool side bar and small cafe. We loved the trip and resort and can't wait to take the whole family back! The only negative was that if the wind was above 35 mph we couldn't use umbrellas on the beach and there was limited shade at the pool.
location and staff leaky air conditioner....water all over the balcony slow-draining sink in the bathroom sand fleas in the bed maid cleaned the coffee cups with her bare hands...no gloves....no soap...
facilities old, cockroaches in my room!!!!
The staff were amazing, they endured we had everything we needed
Very clean room. Staff was very friendly. Loved that to use bicycle, umbrella and kayaks did not cost us additional money. Restaurant on premise was very good food and friendly staff. Great value for your money. Easy to get find the hotel.
Love, love, love Sanibel Island and Sanibel Inn. Everybody was very helpful. Front desk staff especially Eric was welcoming and helpful. I would definitely go back again and stay here. Everything
It's a nice hotel in a great location - and the front desk staff were fantastic. Hate to go to a really nice hotel and in the room have only plastic cups wrapped in plastic for water, or to drink my coffee in a flimsy paper cup in my room.
