Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.

Enjoyed Most: Had everything we wanted plus lots more. Room was fantastic. We will go back.
Other Comments: They tried to charge me $753 at check-out. I showed them the email from you and they changed the bill. Also- the cleaning staff put the dead bolt open and left. That left our room unlocked and open for many hours.
