Just returned from a week stay and had a great time. From the time we drove up everyone was so friendly. We stayed in the harbourside suites and a beautiful view...though calling it a suite is a.bit of a stretch...it was fine for the three of us..the beds were very comfortable but the room was a bit noisy at night...

We stayed at this resort for 3 nights during our Florida summer holidays mid August 2014 & travelled with 3 of our children aged 17, 14 & 6. The accommodation was very nicely appointed. We had modern rooms (rooms looked recently renovated, great kitchenette, slightly old fashioned but ok bathrooms) with very nice & trendy decor in the rooms, 4... More

We stayed at Harborview Villas for 2 weeks. The place was a bit worn down since we were here 5 years ago but we really enjoyed our stay. The pool was great and the beach was phenomenal. This is an excellent location to bring a family because there are plenty of things to do right in the resort.

I will start by saying that we rarely go to the same place on vacation two years in a row but my kids and husband fought hard this year to go back to South Seas Captiva Island. We stay at the Harbourside Marina and LOVE it and I am pretty picky about hotel rooms. The staff almost everywhere is super... More

We booked this at the last minute for an end-of-summer vacation. We've always stayed on Sanibel and wanted to try Captiva in general and this resort specifically. I have to say it was exactly what we wanted. We stayed in a Marina room - 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen and dining area, living room, screened in balcony overlooking the marina... More

At the end of July, we stayed in one of the tennis villas at South Seas Resort on Captiva. We were very excited because we heard wonderful things about this resort. Upon check-in, our front desk agent was less than thrilled to be assisting us. We told him that we had never been to the resort and were happy to... More

Our trip started with a request for a king bed having been messed up. If you book on South Seas site it takes you to booking.com. Our reservation clearly stated two adults. However, somehow the hotel had us listed as two adults and two children, two queen beds and a pull out double! We also, saw on their reservation that... More

We stayed at South Seas for our honeymoon this past weekend and could not have asked for a better location and staff! The staff was helpful and always had a smile on their face. I liked that instead of having to pay cash for food/drinks, you could use your room card and pay for it at the end of your... More

We had a wonderful holiday at South Seas ; this is a stunning location combined with great service and quality accomodation. The beaches are quite remarkable and are teaming with wildlife. The sea is just as amazing - dolphins, manates sync starfish were all over the place.
