What a wonderful place to bring your boat no matter how big or small. The friendly marina staff is more than accommodating whether they are helping you navigate in thru the channel or helping you tie up as you dock. Once settled and checked in the staff greets you with a refreshing rum punch to start the weekend off right.... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was the third summer I've stayed at this resort; previous years I have stayed in one of the villas at the south end of the plantation, but this year I was in a Marina view suite at the north end. I have never been disappointed with my stay at either location. I typically stay for 3 nights surrounding the... More

John Denver had it all wrong… “almost heaven” is Captiva, FL. My wife and I just recently returned to SSIR after a 3 year hiatus. We brought our children with us this time and as always we were not disappointed. The resort property is beautiful. We stayed in the Harborview Waterview suites, which was gorgeous. It overlooked the ocean and... More

This is a large resort with many options available in terms of rooms and locations on the site. Very well maintained property and a friendly staff but resort fee hardly covered any activities other than the pools. Staff could have provided more info on the complex when we checked in. Some of the activities were not available, such as yoga... More

We stayed for a week at the plantation beach club time share. We had a 2 bedroom unit that had everything you need to have a wonderful family beach vacation. The resort is 2.5 miles long but has a trolley to get you from one side to the other. The resort pool has 2 slides a fabulous views. I will... More

What an amazing resort ! You feel like you have arrived in a far away island the moment you enter the gate . Main pool looks out over massive water views with dolphins playing and palm trees swaying! Trolley rides, water slides, + white sand beaches equal the perfect family getaway! Something for everybody.

Thank you for staying at South Seas Island Resort and sharing your experience. I'm glad you enjoyed your time with us. I just recently took a visitor on a tour of the resort village, and she saw her first ever dolphin as we rode by Redfish Pass in our golf cart. Like her, I hope South Seas provided you unforgettable... More

We have stayed here a few times when visiting Captiva. We like the Harbourside Marina View Guestrooms. They are comfortable and the bathrooms are nice and roomy. The grounds at the resort are beautifully maintained, and lots to do - shelling, walking, biking, water sports, or just laying out in the sun! Last time visiting resort employees went up and... More

Checking was quick and friendly. Room was clean and spacious. Our room had a beautiful sunset view with a very short walk to the beach. My only complaint was that they kept calling us to make sure everything was okay.
