    • Liked: Staff & service, amenities
    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    The room was nice but the beds were very broken down. No air conditioning and the smart tv was Locked out. Not what we would have expected for $600 a night. The pools and beach however are so nice for families. The rooms are hit or miss. We have been going to South Seas for years but rethinking a VRBO for next time.

    The north pool area is the standout positive of the resort. This was our third year in a row and now our last. This year we were in the Bay View Villas behind the main reception building. Upon entering our unit (5216) we were shocked at the lack of basic upkeep. There were missing cabinet doors, broken/rusted air vents, stained/dirty grout lines in the floor, mold in the shower grout, and more. We should of seen an omen when we witnessed an older couple voicing their complaints to the manager in the lobby of the reception building upon arrival. The manager was rude and condescending to them. We shared our disappointment to customer service when they checked via text and even told them we would of checked out after one night had the cost penalty had not been so extreme. They actually offered to waive it and we immediately left the north pool and checked out. We shared the issues with the the multiple pictures we took of the unit. At check out they attempted to short our credit. When the assistant manager went behind the wall at the desk and told the manager the credit was short we heard her respond "I am done dealing with this" we never saw her, got any appology from her only heard her arrogance in a voice with a southern accent. They corrected the amount after we threatened to dispute the entire bill. We were repeat travelers and completing our third week on Sanibel/Captiva Island. We are returning to Sanibel but not back to South Seas Resort on Captiva.

    Considering the price paid the property was old, building very old, sliding glass doors were broken etc Everything is extra. Paid $$$ per day for a pool towel yet were told we couldn’t use them at our pool??? Bar staff was rude and no employees wear name tags. Left to a more reasonable hotel and received fabulous service
