Thought South Seas was a beautiful resort. Immaculate beach with on site facilities and unlimited chairs, umbrellas. tables and towels set up for your group. Water is pristine and sand is soft and rock free, Clean updated rooms with good beds. Restaurants are easy to get to. Tiki bartenders and pool waitstaff are fun and attentive.

This is our sixth consecutive year visiting South Seas Resort, and each time it gets better and better. This year was made evening more special thanks to one of the main pool area managers, Travis. Having a two year old on vacation is challenging enough, but each day we went to the pool (we always had cabana 17), Travis made... More

My wife and I have been bringing our 5 children to South Seas Island Resort for the last 6 years. The number one reason we keep coming back is the amazing hospitality of the staff and management. No one exemplifies this anymore than Travis (as well as his team including Sylvester, Andrew and Everton) at the pool. Travis makes each... More

South Seas Resort on the North end of Captiva Island, FL has something for all ages: beautiful beach, many pools, water sports, children's play room, arcade, golf, tennis and easy access to Ding Darling Nstionsl Wildlife Refuge. Family of 8 enjoyed well appointed 3 bedroom villa. A rented golf cart enhanced the experience!

We had a fantastic vacation here. Stayed on the beach and loved it. We had 2 twelve year old children and it was safe enough to let them go to areas on their own within the resort, which gave everyone a wonderful sense of independence! The wildlife, beach, pool, tiki bar, and water sports were the highlights of this vacation... More

We have been spending annual family holidays at South Seas for a number of years. The resort has all that we need for everyone to enjoy their vacation. The beach is the best, especially with the personalized service that Delbert provides. He always makes us feel like we are "back home" and goes the extra mile to make every day... More

Spent four days in the harbourside rooms of this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was our first trip to Florida so cannot compare, but the island is beautiful and the hotel very good. Pros: Abundant wild life (dolphins, pelicans, flamingos, manatees etc); beautiful shell sand beaches; good fishing/sailing/boating; good restaurants; trolley bus for getting around the resort; spacious rooms...
