Awesome location.

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: Location was great. Well spread out so never felt crowded.

Nice rooms but few look out at the beach.

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: I know that the resort is rather large but you really didn't see lots of people. There was plenty of green space separating houses and condo's.
Cons: Having beach towels at the individual pools would be an easy thing to do and very much appreciated.
Location: South Seas is located practically at the end of the island and speed is slow most of the way. Plenty of restaurants close by.
The grounds and common areas were very clean and well maintained. The resort is very spread out sometimes hard to find specific areas. I saw a lot of golf carts running around but it was not mentioned when checking in that you could rent them. We, however; used our car. I was very disappointed not finding any special shells on the beach as I thought they were known for them. There also were not any towels by our pool so I'm glad I brought some beach towels. The men on the beach were very accommodating showing us to our lounge chairs and offering to set up the umbrella , giving us plenty of towels. You will need to allow plenty of time to get through Sanibel as the traffic is very heavy.

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience. I apologize that we did not provide you with information that could have improved your experience. The pools at the various accommodations are maintained by various associations, and therefore we do not supply towels at those pools. Many of our guests simply take towels from the room to these pools. We do provide chairs, towels, and umbrellas at the Resort Pool Complex, and the South and Sunset Beach areas. Upon your return to the resort, we'd welcome the opportunity to answer any questions you may have about amenities and services provided. With warm regards, Neil Swetz Dir of Guest Services

Husband's favourite trip

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: central, lots to do, safe, friendly, majority of the time there were more seats than people - which is rare. they don't allow people to save chairs
Cons: food - beach service took an hour to get food. food is fine but not great
Location: bike rental a must. Ding Darling was ok but pretty slow paced. restaurants in captiva are fine but foodies would be very disappointed.
We had a great time. Feel very safe travelling with kids - we had 9yr old - 14. All had a lot of fun. three families were travelling together. Beach was beautiful. Grounds very clean. Lots of fun things to do although you pay top dollar to do any "a la carte" adventures. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. If you like tennis they have a lot of courts to play on. Golf was great experience. Found some beautiful sea shells. Have amazing family memories!

Great resort

Posted Mar 19, 2015
This is a wonderful resort on the north end of Captiva Island. The beaches are wonderful and the staff very attentive. The marina is great for watching manatees and an occasional dolphin. The grounds are impeccably maintained. The vibe is totally laid back. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Family friendly

We spent spring break with our kids and it was great! It can be a crap shoot in southern Florida at this time, I would recommend this to families with children of all ages.
