Overview

Sprawling across the northern region 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, exclusive oasis just an hour’s drive from Fort Myers.

Trolley shuttles ensure guests can access the numerous on-site dining outlets and amenities. Accommodations vary across the grounds, from marina-side hotel rooms to quaint cottages, villas (condominiums) and spacious private homes

Before taking part in the resort’s copious on-site activities, 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 the 9-hole golf course, 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

The deal was really good for the resort compared to other rates out there. It's a beautiful property -- good pool for the kids, great beaches.
Other Comments
Make a point to see the sunset every night. The par-3 golf course is great for beginners -- not a lot of water and wide fairways. The pools are really good for kids -- and they are heated! Make sure to rent a bike while you are there -- it's a big resort!

Other Comments
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
