Exciting hotel lots of wildlife

Posted Jul 28, 2016
Great staff and room but the experiences were amazing. We saw dolphins playing right off the fishing pier and in the marina. Manatees in the Marina was amazing to be a few feet away. The scout about scavenger hunt was fun and was a learning experience for the family. Really enjoyed our stay.

Great location, great hotel, great staff.

First time guest. Great great family vacation spot. We have a 14 year old and a 4 year old. We reserved a Tennis Villa. The staff was always accommodating and helpful. The resort is perfect for kids. They have water slides, kids pool (with Tiki bar for parents), and umbrellas, chairs, towels at the beach. Could not be happier with our stay. They have kid and teen programs available, fun ice cream shops, and restaurants on site for parents. The only downside to our stay was that the master bed room in the Tennis Villa is a loft. The loft over looks the living room and has no privacy from sun or people in the kitchen or living room. Other than that, fantastic Villa with everything you need in the fully stocked kitchen.

Nice beach

Posted Jul 16, 2016
We stayed in a Marina Villa. The location was ideal: very close to the beach, close to the main pool (close is based on having an 11 and 13 year old; the distance would be far for a toddler). The room (705) was not recently renovated, despite having been told that it had been at check in. However, it was still nice and not run down. There was a unit two doors down that was in the process of being renovated and it looks like the upgrades will be quite nice. Housekeeping service was spotty. We purchased groceries in Sanibel and ate breakfast and lunch both in our room. The kitchen had most of what you would want, but oddly had only two plates and no can opener. The coffee maker was not functional, but was replaced promptly with a call to the front desk. We were at the hotel for 5 days and did not leave other than for dinner. While we were there we played tennis (you have to rent rackets), went to the beach (towels, chairs, umbrellas all available for free), swam in the pools, went parasailing, fished, took the dolphin boat tour (saw dolphins right away), did the scavenger hunt (lots of fun), and rented kayaks (manatee in lagoon swam right up to our boats and hung out to have its belly scratched). All the staff associated with these activities were excellent and friendly. The only hotel restaurants that we used were Scoops and Doc Fords. We were planning on visiting the Harbourside Grill, but were put off by both the limited menu and the high prices.

One of our favorite places!

Posted Jul 16, 2016
We love south seas! It is truly a unique place to visit...so much to see and do. The resort does an incredible job with families and really authentic experiences for the kids relating to the environment and ecosystems of the island. It's just a great place- resort is great- pool too. Beach is good

Traveling with 3 year old twins is never easy, but South Seas Resort was the perfect vacation! It was easy to navigate, location was fantastic, and there was plenty to keep my kiddos busy.
