Very nice room; clean & comfy. We were close to the beach & had a beautiful day to soak up some sun, enjoy the sunset & the dolphins. Then we grilled some fresh fish outside our room. There's also a free washer & dryer on site. It was sad to leave!

It was 3 days last year and 5 days this time in the Post Office Box. Check-in was once again smooth and friendly. Greg greeted us at the Box and I thanked him up front for our last visit and everybody dazzled us here again. The room had a few nice unexpected updates. The Box is perfect for a couple... More

We recently booked 5 nights at Jensen's and could not have been more pleased with our stay. I read every review on Trip Advisor before finally choosing to book it. The reviews are not exaggerated. They could not have been more friendly or helpful when explaining how things work and what is available for guests. We had 6 people in... More

We recently stayed at Jensen's for a family gathering. Every moment of the weekend was wonderful. EVERYONE at Jensen's was so helpful..from reservations to special requests to housekeeping to boat rentals to check out! This resort will always be a top recommendation of ours!

Jensen's "On the Gulf" has so much to offer. The unit we stayed in is pleasantly situated on the beach with a screened in containing tables and chairs that we were able to eat at while enjoying the ocean view. The unit and it's surroundings are in excellent condition and well maintained. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking and... More

We stayed 6 nights at the Post Office Box and it was perfect! The area is so nice and convenient to the beach and the bay. There is wildlife everywhere! This was a great place to unplug. The mini frig, microwave, and amenities were just right for our stay. We love the quiet non-commercial atmosphere. Jensen's is the best place... More

My wife and I stayed in the Post Office Sweet for 5 nights and could not have been happier! The location is perfect (on the island and in the resort). The room was clean and furnished well. Jensens provides chairs, umbrellas, and other assorted toys for the beach. We walked to Starbucks each morning and then over to the Jensens... More

We met three other couples in Captiva for one of our friends Anniversary. They have been staying at this resort for 16 years and now I know why. We stayed in the Penthouse and the suite was HUGE. I have no idea why it is max occupancy of 2. We could have fit two more people. There is no pool... More
