"The room (1 BR, 2 bath- full kitchen, screened porch) was clean & well maintained. The trolley service made getting around very easy. It is a very large area. All the grounds are taken care of remarkably well. It's a very relaxing place to go, but there was a great pool area that children were enjoying."

Overview

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.

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

We took the dolphin cruise, and the naturalist was very informative. We saw a few dolphins. The only negative was that the wifi was very unreliable, as was the resort's app as a result. Wifi was rarely available.

Our unit was not cleaned each day - just fresh towels. The floors were very dirty. The kitchen was a mismatch of stuff with the pots & pans being rusty and the coffee maker was old and broken. Not a luxury resort!
