First I will start by saying I am a bit of a hotel snob. This was our first time to the resort and the age of the property worried me. We stayed in a 3 bedroom lands end Villa. It was a bit tired but clean and a very nice place to stay. The villa was large had a full... More

My wife and I returned to South Seas Plantation for our 30th anniversary. We honeymooned here and thought it would be fitting to mark time with a return trip. We were able to stay in the same room, which had been updated and was very modern. The grounds of the resort are still kept up well, the staff is very... More

Recently stayed at the resort 10/12-10/16/14 and it exceeded our expectations. This was our first vacation together and it was great. We had the harbor view which was nice. Good location to beach, pool and the restaurants on the resort. They do have a resort fee daily that is added when check out. You get to use your room key... More

My wife, kids (11/13) and I visited the resort over Columbus weekend 2014 staying three nights coming down from Boston. A number of families from our town had visited the resort prior so we had a good scouting report despite it being our first visit. We stayed in a basic Harborside room overlooking the ocean and "T-Dock". (We were on... More

This was our 2nd stay at this place, the 1st stay was great! The 2nd, not so good. First off, we stayed here two years ago and paid the Florida Resident rate...that was it. Booked it online, saw the total price, including tax and that was it. Now two years later, we booked online again, got the Florida Resident rate... More

My husband and I love this place. We got engaged and married down here and come down once a year for vacation. It is a place we can actually unwind and forget about work. The property is gorgeous and the staff is beyond accommodating. The pool over looking the inter-coastal is spectacular. Our waiter Ashely made sure we were "irie"... More

This was a quick weekend getaway since we live nearby. After a nice bike ride through Sanibel's Ding Darling reserve, we checked in to a marina view room. Very clean with a nice view; pool at that end of island has fantastic view of the bay marina. The chairs on that side of the pool are conveniently placed to face... More

Thank you for visiting South Seas Island Resort and sharing your comments. Your feedback helps us better understand our guests' needs and perspective. Unfortunately, we are unable to build the fee into the room rate, but I understand your perspective. My pet peeve when traveling is having to pay a parking fee.

This was our first stay at this resort, we usually stay in the Sanibel area. The resort is beautiful, extremely well groomed, all the coconut palms make you feel you are in Hawaii. The staff was very friendly & helpful. We were in a condo (1301) overlooking the golf course and beyond that was the Gulf, a gorgeous view! The... More

I don't know where to start and what words to use to describe the time I have had here! Our room faced the Gulf, make sure to get a 2nd or 3rd floor. Our first day here, right from the beach we saw dolphins a few yards from shore, eagles, osprey and more!! This place rocks!!!
