The South Seas Island Resort is located on the stunningly beautiful Captiva Island. Captiva is a sweet cross between Martha's Vineyard and the Keys with a very non Florida feel. Everyone at the resort is very friendly and helpful from the front desk staff, to housekeeping , bartenders etc.We stayed in the Sunset Beach villas and the accommodations and decor... More

Traveling on business, lets me experience places that I would never think of visiting on my own. South Seas Resort on Captiva Island is a classic example. What a cool place. I was there for a National Sales Meeting. We were set up in the condo's on the south end of the resort. I shared a 3 bedroom unit with... More

The South Seas Island resort is probably my favourite holiday destination, and we travel a lot! From the moment you enter the gatehouse, where they know exactly who you are, to the the staff in reception who are wonderfully welcoming, you are gently eased into the chilled out Caribbean influence of the island. We have stayed in most of the... More

Overall I LOVED my vacation there in August. I was a guest of my sister. My only negative is that the Condos could have been cleaner. I cleaned myself when I arrived and feel the staff could do a better job. The overall resort is BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING.

We are Hilton Grand Vacation owners and were lucky to book into South Seas Club for our November school break week. The interior of our 2 bedroom condo was old and dated but clean. It was a bit of a disappointment at first, but after we realized that our building was directly next to the the North end pool and... More

My husband and two daughters (ages five and nine) visited SSIR from 1/15/15-1/19/15. We booked through Expedia, with a air package that was quite reasonable. There was a lot that was great for a family about this resort. For one, the villas were a perfect size for our family. We stayed in a beach villa which was quite far from... More

Gorgeous property! We stayed in a beach bungalow which was really a 1 bedroom condo. It was a little tired looking but the location on the beach was great. It had a screened in porch with a great view of ocean but on the 2nd floor so you could not see the beach. The beaches here are outstanding. Nice place... More

We stayed at the resort from 1/10/15-1/17/15. We wanted a restful, quiet vacation within 3 hours of NY with beach, golf, and other outdoor activities. The staff is very accommodating. We asked to change our room (tennis villa) to a bay villa and that was no problem. The room, however, was in dire need of an update. The couch is... More
