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

    The grounds were beautiful. The shuttle was very convenient, however, it did not go to the Bayside Villas where we were staying. The reception front desk was extremely accommodating to every request.

    No nightlife after dinner/sunset at the resort grounds. You needed to leave and go into Captiva. Needed some daily activities geared towards adults such as pool games and music., trivia, bingo, etc.

    The staff was exceptional! The island location, pools and beaches were gorgeous. They have so many family activities like fishing, boating, paddle boarding, parasailing that’s convenient and right at the resort. The rooms could use updated but the location and service was great!

    We were disappointed that we were unable to visit the beaches on Captiva and nearby Sanibel due to the red tide, but we’re hoping to visit again in the future

    We are local, saw your TravelZoo offer, we've been many times to Sanibel/Captiva. Always wanted to try the South Seas Island Resort. So, for my husband's Birthday, I took him to the property.

    Everything was beautiful. We ate at two of the restaurants on the property, the property was well cared for. But the rooms really need to be re-done. We wondered if the lower priced offer was because the rooms (in our case, 1 BR condo) were in need of updating.

    The amazing pools and amenities. But the staff was such a high point. They just couldn't do enough and were extremely warm and friendly. Made the visit so enjoyable!

    We were a group of 13 family members, 5 adults and 8 kids, ages 12 to 18. We're the grandparents and our kids talked us into parasailing! It was just amazing. Time at the pool with our crazy family was the most fun. Saw some dolphins, too! Thank you, South Seas Island Resort!

    They have everything you need on property, with a tram ( and tram TRACKER), so you can stay right there for everything if you want.
