Why We Love It

  • Family-friendly, 330-acre resort sprawling over the northern third of Captiva Island
  • 2.5 miles of white-sand beaches hug the property’s perimeter, giving off a secluded feel
  • On-site golf course is “one of the most picturesque 9-holers anywhere” (Frommer’s)
  • Copious dining options, kid-friendly activities and a 4,000-square-foot spa on site


Sprawling across the entire northern third of Captiva Island, South Seas Island resort “feels as lush as its name suggests” (Fodor’s). Two and a half miles of pristine white-sand beaches hug this 330-acre nature preserve, offering a quiet and secluded oasis just an hour’s drive from Fort Myers.

Trolley shuttles ensure guests can easily traverse the whopping acreage, zipping through the property’s ever-green mangrove forests to the numerous on-site dining outlets and amenities. Accommodations vary across the grounds, from marina-side hotel rooms to quaint condominiums and cottages, spacious private homes and villas.

Before taking part in the resort’s copious on-site activities and amenities, head to the seashore to hunt for unique souvenirs on the property’s superb shell-hunting sands. Resident manatees and dolphins are often spotted splashing away in the nearby waters, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled not only for shells.

Tee up at “one of the most picturesque 9-holers anywhere” (Frommer’s), book a treatment at the 4,000-square-foot state-of-the-art spa or take the kids to the family interactive center to enjoy an abundance of kid-friendly activities. Water sports, tennis courts, bikes and a massive pool complex are also available for guests wishing to stay active throughout their stay.

There was a misunderstanding about the room rate and the Desk attendant cleared it up right away with kindness and great results. I think her name is Cerly.

We enjoyed all of the surrounding nature and peacefulness. We saw so many manatees, dolphins, and many gorgeous birds. We had fun riding bikes around the island and the sunset was amazing.

I have traveled to South Seas multiple times, often in groups as I have endorsed the resort to others. Will likely go elsewhere on my future trips to Sanibel/Captiva. My daughter was in a cast and not allowed to use the slides, the main reason we go to that resort. The slide rules are posted in 4 different areas, so initially it was difficult to figure it out even though she used the slides a few times given a long-sleeve UV top she had that some of the attendants missed. Imagine her disappointment that initially she could go and then no more for the rest of our stay. My objection extends to not being given the opportunity to sign a waiver of responsibility for the resort if she was to be hurt. That blind and all or none mentality is unfortunate and self-serving. It’s too bad as otherwise our stays over several years have been positive. As it is, her cast comes off today and it could have been removed a week ago - we did not foresee such stubbornness and please do not aim to spin it as it being for her safety. It was because of your fear of attorneys, plain and simple. Otherwise a waiver would have been allowed. Thank you nonetheless for the positive past stays. Rafael Harris

This compound was beautiful, the villa/ building was dated and could use a through cleaning. The room itself was clean but the paint was peeling above the shower, the fan on the lanai needed cleaning, there were cobwebs on the outside top of the door. We enjoyed our stay however had we not gotten the deal from travel zoo I would have been upset. 1st: i requested an early check in and got to the hotel only to be told our room wasn’t ready at 2pm, she said it would only be 30 minutes but was almost an hour and 30 minutes. 2. On day of check out housekeeping knocked on our door at 9:30am despite the do not disturb sign on the door, we do not have to check out until 11, I was pretty angry about that. 3. We were told it is a cashless/cardless resort however both the ship store and provisions store took cash/card. 4. Everything closes between 9-10. If you would like a drink/coffee after a later dinner you better bring your own. 5. I would suggest if staying in a villa that you stop at a grocery store before serving as EVERYTHING is exhorbantly overpriced at the resort!!! I don’t mind pathing for things however they do t give you much information and then lock you in once you arrive. 6. When I called the night before check out to request we be able to check out at noon not 11, I was told to call back in the morning t see if that was possible, they were not very accommodating. Also each time I called the resort from the time of booking to check out each person who answered the phone was not overly friendly. Again, we enjoyed Captiva and the resort, had it not been for the excellent travel zoo deal we would not spend the money to go back.
