Recently, SCBR’s 4 resorts launched a “Rest Assured” campaign that allows guests with current reservations at any Sanibel Captiva Beach Resort to reschedule for a later date, or if necessary cancel the reservation, without fee if done within 24 hours of date of reservation. SCBR advises that guests needing to modify their reservations email or telephone the Reservations Departments at the respective resort.
