The Disney of Beach Vacations

Posted Aug 16, 2015
Pros: Views to die for, peaceful and serene. Every blade of grass in place and not a crumb of litter in sight. High end facilities and service.
Cons: Insufficient guest parking is a huge problem. Even with trolley service be prepared to walk blocks from car to room, room to breakfast, etc.
Location: Explore Sanibel of course, Gramma Dot's for dinner, ice cream at Pinnoccio's.
Severe parking issues aside (4 vs. 5 stars for facilities) we loved our experience at South Seas Resort! It is beautiful and pristine. A very clever marketing team brings guests the "scout about" experience whereas children of all ages explore the resort in search of colored wrist bands. Our daughter had so much fun! And Mom & Dad in turn were presented every corner of the property. Smart. Service is 5 star, especially the beach staff. Need an umbrella? Another blanket? The staff in the yellow shirts are on it. And if you decide to go dolphin watching with Captiva Cruises right from the resort, a special wrist band for you to add to the collection. The entire island is a world apart from the daily grind, very chill and SSIR is the ultimate. Kiss your cares away! Unless you explore outside of / leave resort with car, for Sanibel, etc. Even in "off season" our building lot was almost always totally full. Rumor of new hotel rooms to come on line may exaggerate parking problem while congesting beach, restaurants and other facilities. BOO! We plan to go back, and often... provided the peaceful calming vibe remains in tact. It's the main allure!

Fantastic get away with the family!

Posted Aug 8, 2015
This resort was beautiful and we had a great week! The staff was very accommodating, the pools & water slides were great, and the beaches beautiful. We loved the wildlife in our Harborside room. They do need more activities at the pool like in many other resorts would have, and some music would be appreciated when laying poolside spending $14/ drink at the bar. The trip was pricey, but we left with nothing but happy memories!

Perfect FAMILY getaway

Posted Jul 29, 2015
Pros: EVERYTHING! esp trolley system and number of activities!
Cons: Varying food options at different price points. Kids tired of seafood and chicken tenders.
Had a wonderful 10 days - our 1st time to the Gulf Coast and it exceeded our expectations. Had plenty to do even with 3 days of rain! Only downside were not many food type choice options on Sanibel/Captiva and all priced the same. Expect $20+ entrees at all resturants, but most worth the price. Also, shop at PUBLIX grcery stre BEFORE entering island...

Enorme complejo!

Posted Jul 28, 2015
Es un enorme complejo vacacional, yo estaba en la parte sur, totalmente alejada El complejo tiene 2 toboganes de agua para niños, nada del otro mundo! La playa no es bonita!!! Si te gusta el golf entonces si el complejo vale la pena

Don't stay in the South Block- misleading photos

Posted Jul 20, 2015
My family and I booked a stay at South Seas Resort over the weekend. We had booked a king villa Bayside as there wasn't much else available at the time. Upon check-in very little information was given to us about the resort itself and the services provided. Our room was in the South End of the resort and we later found out that it is pretty far away from the 4 star area of the resort. We were very disappointed with our room, it was 2 Queens, had no resort information, the A/C system was terrible and again photographs were misleading. We had to go out of our way to seek very simple information about trolley times, restaurants, beach access etc.... If you book here ensure you stay at the North end. It is a world of difference and we didn't feel like we were apart of the resort at all. We would only come again if we Are guaranteed a room at harbourside/north end.

Great family vacation

Posted Jul 16, 2015
Our family had a fantastic time at south seas captive island Florida. There are numerous things to do for all tastes. So many that I would like to have stayed longer. It is a bit pricey though!
