Pros: Location and friendliness of all staff GREAT WEATHER AND BEAUTIFUL VISTA OF THE SEA
Cons: Rooms need to be checked for everything to be in working order.
Location: Beautiful Paradise Island and is 5 Star resort and selling paradise. Food, beverages and adventure. Great weather, and family designation place
The South Sea Island was a wonderfully beautiful place very well located for that winter time get-away vacation. Beautiful scenery and great side trips shelling or marine life abundant. Ospreys were so close you could almost touch them. Beautiful beaches and Harbor was very interesting with its Christmas decor and parade for guest and Captiva Island regulars. Shopping and eating in walking distance. Like the Grande Hotel in Point Clear and Sea Side at South Walton Beach but more....

Nice hotel on the beach with lots of wildlife

Posted Dec 18, 2016
Pros: The location and atmosphere
Cons: Cleaner bathroom in our room
It was a beautiful, peaceful place. My husband and I were only there for 2 days but would return again. The room was nice, the view was great. I was a little upset that the bathroom was not fully cleaned. Overall great place.

Wow!!!

What a great getaway. Very family friendly property. Everyone from check in to the pool attendants were friendly as can be. Room was great. Different food options all across the property. Most memorable was the Holiday stroll that they have been putting on for several years now. Our 4 year old daughter loved it! See you soon South Seas!

Lee, thank you for taking the time to send us your honest feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to see some Manatees while you were here. South Seas is an Island Resort so you are correct there is not a central city, however Sanibel Island is only a 20 minute drive with much to do and see. We take your comments to heart and use them to improve our product and service where needed. Again thank you.
