Our family (2 adults,9 and 4yr old kids) had a great time at the South Seas! The adults spent ALOT of time at the Crooked Snook Tiki Bar while the kids were perfectly content swimming in the two pools and water slides... All overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. A special thanks to Marc, Susan, and Jackie at the Tiki bar... More

I felt so important. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and had infectious smiles on their faces. I want to give a special thanks to Manny Fernandez, Glenn, Neil, Jay and the bartender ( I forgot her name) for making our visit a special one to remember.

Although my visit to South Seas was brief, I wanted to stay much longer. The grounds, facilities, beaches, etc. were superb and the staff was even better. A special thanks to Manny, at the pool gate, and the bartender (I forgot her name) at the Tiki Bar; they made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Thank you Neil for allowing... More

The room is a perfect location and the porch is great for the room. The beds are comfortable and the room is a great size. The room has all you need including multiple TV's, a microwave, and all cooking utensils. Special credits to Manny, Chelsea, Susan, and Amanda. They were of good assistance and did what we asked.

Absolutely Beautiful Resort! Perfect Resort for Families! Spectacular Beach that is great for collecting shells. Chartered a private boat for fishing that our entire family enjoyed immensely. Dolphins even came up to our boat. Biking on the resort is safe for even a novice bike rider. There's a great Mexican restaurant that was so delicious we went there two days... More

My only regret is that I have not taken my family to this resort sooner! We booked a four night stay here last minute for some pre-Disney beach fun. We really needed to "get away from it all" so we booked South Seas Resort because it looked a little more remote than the places we usually stay. Once we arrived,... More
