My family and I stay several times a year at Lands End, which I recommend because of its amazing location close to the pool (about a 5 minute walk) and by redfish pass. We have nothing but the greatest experience. While some units have been better than others (each unit has its own decor and updates) it has overall always... More

I had a wonderful stay at South Seas Island Resort! The rooms are very spacious and the view was so serene! The service an amenities are wonderful! People were so welcoming and polite! Rooms are very clean! Gym facilities were great and there was enough equipment that I didn't have to wait. Sunset beach is very close and I was... More

This was a short get away. We visited South Seas by boat and stayed on our boat. The hospitality was excellent. We were treated as if we were staying in a penthouse. Full access to all the amenities, the pool, dining, transportation. On our first night we dined in the restaurant. It was superb. Fine dining at a reasonable price.... More

We went to the resort and stayed in a 3-bedroom beach villa. The view of the Gulf of Mexico was great and their was plenty of space for my family of 4. Our friends stayed in an even larger unit 2 buildings over, but not nearly as updated, so make sure you ask for an updated unit as they are... More

We visited for our honeymoon and from planning to end it was perfect. The complex was beautiful, our room was more than I expected. They have a top notch fitness center. We had several dinners at Harbourside Bar & Grill, Chef Andre is amazing and I would travel back just for the grouper dish. We will definitely be back!

Firstly, Captiva is the most beautiful place with an amazing array of wildlife. I loved loved loved it and we will definitely come back. We won't stay at South seas though. We had a bayside villa and when we arrived we were disappointed with the 70's style blocks of flats that greeted us. The whole place seemed dated and it... More

I recently stayed 4 night at South Seas with my mom and sister, for a short girl's getaway. The property includes so many picturesque options, and our favorite was the beach. The staff is friendly and eager to assist setting you up with chsirs, towels, umbrellas, as soon as you hot the beach. It's gorgeous water, perfect for swimming and... More

We stayed at southseas in August 2015 and had a lovely stay. We had an apartment in the Bayside villa complex with amazing views of the harbour and sea. The whole resort is beautiful with 2 main pools at the other end of the resort to us. I hadn't realised quite how big it is, needing a bus to get... More

Found online deal for stay 3 nights, 4th is free so my wife and I gave it a shot (might be an ongoing deal, not sure). A bit of a drive, 30 minutes from the mainland, but as good a resort as you'll get for non-all inclusive. Pools were nice, but busy and tough to get a chair (lots of... More

South Seas Island Resort was great for our group of 2 adults and five children. We stayed for 4 days taking advantage of the "fourth night free" promotion. Reservation Staff was very helpful with suggestions as to which type of unit and location would be best for our group. Glad we took her advice and stayed on the beach....top floor... More
