Diamond Head Beach Resort

Sundial Beach Resort
One of the largest resort hotels on Sanibel Island, The Sundial Beach Resort is a great choice for families.  There is a palm-studded beachside pool, marine biology programs, and a small ecology center with a touch tank, just in case the kids need a break from playing on the beach.  While the Sundial Beach Resort is one of the largest hotels on the island, some critics claim that the property lacks the intimacy afforded by smaller establishments.

Sanibel Inn
Nature lovers flock to the beachside Sanibel Inn.  Here, a "back to nature" theme prevails indoors and out.  The fully equipped rooms are spacious and clean, and decorated in a unique nature theme.  Outside, the grounds are planted with native Florida flowers and foliage to naturally attract hummingbirds and butterflies.  Relaxing on your private screened porch is a special treat, as you can enjoy the very best of nature without the hassles of mosquitoes and other bugs.

Casa Ybel Sanibel Island Resort
Considered by some to be on the finest hotels on Sanibel Island, Casa Ybel is actually completely comprised of condominiums.  With second floor bedrooms and townhouse style units, many visitors choose the Casa Ybel simply for the privacy it provides.  The resort sits on 23 acres of beachfront property on the historic site of Thistle Lodge, the island's first beachfront hotel.  Guests at the Casa Ybel Sanibel Island Resort enjoy exquisite cuisine and magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Song of the Sea

European travelers love the Song of the Sea for its charming accommodations and unique touches, like the plantation shutters.  The beachside hotel offers motel-like efficiencies and one-bedroom suites.  Sliding patio doors lead to comfortable screened porches.  Although the bedrooms are relatively small, the king size beds are huge, and every visitor is assured a great nights' sleep.
