Overview

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.

From the press:
  • “Water on three sides give the resort a delicious seclusion” – Fodor’s
  • “Its Gulfside golf course is one of the most picturesque 9-holers anywhere” – Frommer’s

It was beautiful, we had a great time, lots to do, more of a kid friendly place then I thought, but that was ok.

Alot of teenagers driving golf carts that we're under 16. Late at night, we heard screeching tires, I look out window and a couple of kids on golf carts almost hit each other. They should not be allowed without parents.

Staff personnel were very friendly.
Other Comments
Our villa room was certainly not up to resort standards, nor was the pool in our complex. While everything was in passable working order in our room, it appeared as though the unit had been neglected for quite some time. Outdated furnishings. Caulking needing to be done almost everywhere. Air Conditioner had a hard time keeping the humidity out of the unit. Balcony furniture seriously outdated and metal table was sticky to the touch. NOT RESORT STANDARDS. When we commented on this at checkout the only response was, "these units are individually owned and we have no control over them." Very disappointing.
