I stayed with my husband and three kids in a 3 bedroom beach villa. The view of the beach from the room was very relaxing. However, the porches off the units were dirty and not kept up, and therefore I never felt relaxed sitting outside. The unit was very run down. From reading other reviews, I realize that we should...

330 acres at the tip of an island in the Gulf. Just awesome. The elevators and buildings look a little banged up, but "villas" (really apartments) are nice, comfy... Conference center great. I love it here: my second time, will be back happily!

This was our first trip to Captiva. We have 4 children, ages 13-18. This was the best vacation ever! The island is beautifully remote. Not built up with commercial buildings or hotels. South Seas was well kept. We stayed in the Beach Homes. Such a treat to have private living space and our own private beach. We rented a golf... More

Recently stayed 5 nights at the hotel--Captiva is just gorgeous! However, this resort needs to up its game. Good things: service with a smile, lovely landscaping, clean wide beach, waterview from our room was amazing. Annoying things: not one HD channel or movie channels on the nice tv, very basic cable; wifi was so slow that you could not stream... More

Perfect winter oasis from the Northeast. Family trip with an almost 5 and 2 year old. The staff at Scully's is awesome. Scully's is the on-site activity center for kids named after their Parrot that seemed to do more watching than talking. They are truly passionate about kids and giving parents a much needed break :) Thank you Debbie and... More

Looking for an escape? Consider South Seas Resort at the tip of Captiva Island, the lesser-known companion isle to Sanibel, on the Gulf Coast of Florida. A private, gated oceanfront resort of several hundred acres(most of it left protectively natural), it features privately-owned villas, condos and estates largely secluded from the one and only road by trees and manicured plantings....

South Seas has wonderful options for the whole family. For the golfers in the family, there's a fantastic 9 hole golf course that runs along the ocean, it's absolutely breathtaking! You can also enjoy tennis on the many courts, a day at the beach, or fun at the enormous pool! The pool is actually at the end of the resort... More

South Seas has it all! Beautiful rooms (our was in Harborside) dolphins,manatee and pelicans played as we watched from our balcony having our morning coffee. The pool, tiki bar,and beach all more than I could ask. The friendly, welcoming staff totally makes this resort 5 star! Kudos to Travis & Jeff at the pool for making us feel so welcomed.... More
