From check in to check out everything is first class. The resort has it all. Great restaurants, beaches, pools. golf courses, marinas, and entertainment too. It is clean and well maintained. We have been going there for many years and hopeful return again in the future.

This was the most family friendly resort we have ever visited. The grounds and amenities are fantastic. Our villa was a bit dated but comfortable and we are already planning the next trip back! I would stay closer the the big pool and sunset beach next time, but the trolley ride were fun.

Our stay at the South Seas Island Resort was excellent. The beach is beautiful, the service fine and the overall experience worth the trip. Our villa was 100 yards or so from the ocean with a screened in porch overlooking the water. There are several restaurants on property, and more a short drive away on the island. Slight drawback: the... More

I agree with everyone what a beautiful Island to visit in Florida. The resort was spectacular and everything I had heard about for my first visit there. The employees at South Seas has excellent customer service skills and in particular Donavan at the bike rental shop. We brought our own bikes and mine got a flat tire on the second... More

Spent 5 nights at this gorgeous resort in a group of 7 women celebrating a special birthday. We could not have asked for a more wonderful spot to do so. The beauty of the beach and setting is enhanced by the genuine warmth of all the resort staff. Each person from the front gate attendant to the landscapers and the... More

This was our first time back since our honeymoon thirty-two years ago. The accommodation was ample and clean with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Everything is within easy access and the trolley is convenient. The landscaping makes for a peaceful environment. It is convenient to use the room card as a form of payment whenever you purchase...

We went for a business trip. The resort is more like a compound, very large. The area we stayed in was close to beach, fitness center and breakfast spot. The room was very spacious and had a nice view of ocean. It was nice I wouldn't say amazing but good. It's a very family oriented place and not much for... More

Ideal to go with your family, it has a little bit of everything. We enjoy a week in the PBC building (a 2/2 apt) and the beach was gorgeous. The restaurants are a little bit pricey, but that's expected. Highly recommendable place for you and your family

South Seas is a fabulous resort on the tip of Captiva Island. The Land's End Villa was an amazing two bedroom, two bath condo overlooking the golf course on the resort. We've stayed in many of the different types of accommodations at the resort, the standard hotel rooms, the beach villas and now the Land's End Villas, and all are... More

Well, I can't tell you how much fun we had during our most recent trip to this tropical paradise. I can't say exactly what birthday my wife was celebrating but I wanted to take her away for this special occasion and her birthday just happened to fall the day before the Memorial Day holiday so we had three wonderful days...
