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 and spacious private homes.

Before taking part in the resort’s various on-site activities, head to the seashore to hunt for unique souvenirs on the property’s superb shell-hunting sands. Resident manatees and dolphins can often be spotted splashing in the nearby waters, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more than just shells.

Tee up at the nine-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 centre. Water sports, tennis courts, bikes and a massive pool complex are also available for guests wishing to stay active.

The staff were wonderful and attentive. Room could use a little update in form of television being nicer/HD quality. The room was spacious and comfortable.

This is a huge resort with every option at your fingertips...2mile beach with all amenities, amazing pool complex with water slides, palm trees everywhere, bar, restaurant and other restaurants all over the resort. There are trolley cars & golf carts to get around and 2marinas with all kinds of services. We stayed in a bay view condo, big and beautifully furnished with screened porch and unexpected views of eagles in and out of their nests.

The staff in entirety were above and beyond in their hospitality and attention. We got a text every day giving us updates and asking if we needed anything. We hope to make this resort a yearly vaca and highly recommend to everyone!

We had a great time. The resort (especially the large pool area which edged up to the ocean) was stunning. Food at resort places was great. Quite spread out property. Villa was perfect. A little pricey.
Other Comments
Had a problem understanding the check in person. Had quite an accent so didn't understand when being told about the facilities. Our safe in our suite was locked to where we couldn't get it open. Called about it but never resolved. The resort store was very expensive. Bought a bottle of wine and the girl put it in a paper bag with handles. The wine was refrigerated, and broke through the bag before I even got back to our room. Crashed on the steps and broke open and shot all over me and my clothes. Not a good idea to put wine in a paper bag with handles. Was out $30.00.

We were in the older, cheaper rooms. We had to walk and take the trolley or van to the beach & bigger pools.

The staff at South Seas is exceptional. From the person handing out towels to the bar tenders at the beach bar, they all go above and beyond expectations. Booking on Travel Zoo was easy and saved a substantial amount of money. The daily resort credit comes right off your bill at the end of the stay.

The resort is huge. You need to take the shuttle to get from one end to the other. Plenty for kids to do. Pools are great. Beach is gorgeous especially at sunset. Foosball, ping pong, darts and other games are scattered throughout the resort. Food at The Point was great. Drinks at Attitudes on Sunset beach are tasty but pricey. S’mores on the beach was a nice treat. Last is Off site Mexican at Captiva Cantina was outstanding.
