It’s got a little bit of an upscale motel vibe (which many/most/all the hotels on Sanibel seem to have). Room doors open directly to the outdoors, but felt safe. The area was quiet and secure. Hot tub and pool appeared nice, overheard one of the swimmers mention that the water felt wonderful. Property had a nice hammock and nice private beach access. Breakfast was on of my favorite perks, buffet in the lobby with seating outdoors in a small patio garden area under umbrellas. Perfect start to the morning, really nice and quaint.
Room was clean. Balcony was screened in from the bugs. Complementary chilled wine in the fridge. Bathroom was updated and clean. Tv was a nice size for watching too. Nightstands has USB charging ports, which was very convenient.
With the room fare - bikes, kayaks, and paddle boards are included to checkout. We did not use this service, as it was a little overcast and rainy that morning, but it’s definitely a nice perk to have.

Once again we had an awesome trip to Sanibel. We have stayed at the Song of the Sea off and on for the last 18 years and have had nothing less than excellent service every time, from the check-in desk and to the entire resort staff. Maid service was exceptional, the staff always had a smile and friendly greeting. The grounds are beautifully maintained and gentlemen providing chairs and umbrellas on the beach were fabulous. Highly recommend Song of the Sea . We will definitely continue to be returning guests.
