Sanibel Island

Hi - three questions - has the island and beaches recovered enough from the hurricanes to justify the high price of accomodations? Has anyone heard of the Tropical Winds Motel and Cottages off of West Gulf Drive, and if so is it a good place to stay?
Thanks.

I'm also curious about any favorite attractions you have in Sanibel/Captiva. Thanks.

I think most of the beaches are fine.

Love to eat at Key Lime Bistro, Mucky Duck and Schnappers Hots.

airfare1, it was my understanding that the latest hurricanes did very little if any damage to Sanibel, and that the beaches, etc. are just fine. I think the "attractions" on Sanibel ARE the beaches and shelling, and the wildlife. Simple but fabulous ... we loved it last June!

We enjoyed eating at The Timbers THREE nights (loved the place), and the Island Cow was great for lunch.

Yes! I forgot the Island Cow is wonderful, even for breakfast.

Thank you both. We want to stay right on the beach but my concern is whether or not a beachfront property has been adequately restored if it sustained any damage.

The only major resort that has stayed closed is South Seas Plantation at the farthest end of Captiva... they appear to be doing a total rebuild after damage from the 2004 hurricane season... most others are up and running and seasonal prices have always been high... the beaches are fine...for now!
