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

The staff was most helpful. We had a couple of issues and they resolved each quickly with a smile. The pools and kids activities were great for our daughter and shelling, grilling, and beautiful sunsets great for us adults. We loved it!

The price was AMAZING! We would absolutely repeat the trip if TravelZoo can arrange again. The Villas were perfect for us. We wanted 10 nights, but had to move a regular room after 7...that was a disappointment, but we did like the property VERY MUCH!

The weather was great and since the season hasn't begun there was no crowd for chairs at the pool or tables in restaurants. Staff was very helpful.
