Why We Love It

  • Family-friendly, 330-acre resort sprawling across the northern region 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 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 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 evergreen mangrove forests to 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 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

    All amenities and beaches available within walking distance or by frequently available shuttle. Unit was very nice except for location.
    Other Comments
    The room specified 'screened balcony' but there was like 6 inches between the door wall and screen. Could not see the bay from the 'Bayside villa', only the small marina which was ringed in by thick vegetation. First floor unit was very cold due to weather and being on top of open parking garage.

    Everything other than our room was wonderful. A beautiful location.
    Other Comments
    Our room had many issues of things broken, not working and filthy floors. We worked with a very helpful manager who did what she could to remedy some of the problems. Had it not been for Amanda, we would have never thought of going back. Now we know if we would make a return visit, what rooms not to stay in!

    Location is beautiful and the beach is great! Resort needs more upkeep to match its price.

    Pool was't cleaned the entire time we were there. Bird poop all over the deck that was never washed our entire stay. Expensive resort fees charged daily and no towels by the pools.

    Loved that it was isolated from the hustle and bustle of Sanibel. Great ocean views and wildlife. The tennis courts are outstanding!!
    Other Comments
    Most of the units are owned privately and rented out through the resort. Each is different, and some are kept up better than others. The beach villa we stayed in, #2312, was very nice with plenty of kitchen ware, nice furnishings, and tasteful artwork.
