We know the Sea Captain has been around a long time but remember all the good memories that have been made there. We stayed there for several weeks and we had a great time. The staff was very friendly and felt like family by the time we left. They have been making improvements while we were there. Our rooms were... More

The room was tiny and there was nowhere to sit in the room except for the beds and 2 small chairs. One chair had a cigarette burn on it and the other chair had a stain that looked like skid marks. The sheets were clean and the mattress had good protective pad. The weekend breakfast was what you would find... More

I must admit that we were apprehensive to book Sea Captain again following the summer reviews but I'm glad we went with our gut. We arrived to a lovely welcome and whilst we had arrived far too early for check-in, our room was ready. This is our third visit and whilst we always go to the beach, this time we... More

Me and my family recently stayed at the Sea Captain Resort as a last minute get away. This place is very small and quiet. They offer breakfast on the weekends. They also have free parking and Wi-Fi. The desk staff is very friendly and very helpful on things to do and places to eat. The housekeeping staff and handy man... More

My son and I recently spent two nights at this hotel and really enjoyed it. The only downsides are that a larger hotel was built right next door and it hides the building and that it will be torn down in about a year to build a bigger hotel. That's a shame because this place has history. Our room was... More

Just returned from a week at the Sea Captain. This was our eighth year there. We were a little "worried" as the last few reviews on Trip Advisor have not been good. But we worried unnecessarily. While it is true that the pristine care of the property is not quite the same as it was with Pepe, Donna and Esther,... More

Where to begin, there is so many issues this year that it's so disheartening to even wrap our heads around. I have been coming here for over 50 years, and sadly this year has been the absolute worst experience. Last year this place was pristine, Pepe worked tirelessly to keep it clean, the pool was sparkling, the grounds were well... More

We have been staying at the Sea Captain since 2008, it is sad to see how it has gone down. Gone are Donna and Esther from housekeeping, not as clean as it was. Gone is the groundskeeper that took pride in his work he would wipe off the outside tables and chairs every day, never saw this once in our... More

Dear Tom, We apologize that you were disappointed with your stay. We do have housekeepers and groundskeepers that dedicate themselves to making this place as clean and beautiful as before. When the beach is busy and we are sold out we know it’s hard to find a parking spot. Our parking lot and pool are strictly for our hotel guest... More

We have been to the Sea Captain about eight times in the last fifteen years and it used to be our most favourite place in Florida. We knew that it was under new management since our last visit in 2013 but we were shocked at the general state of the place now. It used to be in pristine condition and... More
