This weekend my husband and I spent two glorious days on the beach at the South Seas Resort. The beach is impeccably clean and the water is glorious. We were actually swimming with manatee and dolphins. Even the tarpon were out and jumping. Families with children were having a wonderful time, fishing, kayaking, parasailing, or just chasing after the bait... More

It was beautiful -- sweeping ocean views and from the bed it felt like you were on the ocean. it was our second time at the resort. Everyone was very friendly -- we received two phone calls from...

Second time back and still not disappointed! I got a great deal on Travelzoo.com for a room with a kitchenette facing the boat dock. I recommend this kind of room because the food at and around the resort is expensive. We brought our own food and cooked in the room most of the time. The kids pool is great with... More

My mother and I just returned from our weekend stay at South Seas. This place has it's ups and downs, but generally it was a nice experience. A few things to note are... This place (and all of Captiva) is very very very expensive. After paying a high out of season room rate, we also had to pay resort fees.... More

the mimosa was flowing and the staff were so courteous and obliging. Just about anything you could think of was on the brunch and could please the young and the old. Crepes, waffles, roast beef, omelettes, you name it. What a beautiful property. I stayed here once before a long time ago and it still has the class and elegance... More

We just returned from a relaxing stay at the resort and we will definitely be going back. Our accommodations were nice and clean and our view was amazing! The amenities were impressive and there is plenty to do around the resort for all ages. The beaches were amazing, the pool overlooking the Sound was breathtaking and the waterpark was a... More

I was puzzled when I read other reviews because of the amazing range of good and bad. Here are my thoughts on why that is.

My family just returned home from a wonderful week staying at South Seas. This is a top notch resort and they pay attention to details. We stayed in the Lands End Villas and had a wonderfully furnished and spacious 3 bedroom condo. This was plenty of room for the 5 of us. I would recommend this to anyone visiting beautiful... More

My family arrived yesterday and we just finished a second fantastic day at SSIR. We leave on Wednesday and I already know we will be back. We live in Naples and decided to take a quick 'stay cation.' It's only an hour away from our home but we feel we are at the end of the world. We haven't left... More
