We had a great time at this resort from the beginning stages of planning. We stayed in one of the Bayside Villas on the gulf side of the island. We arrived early into town after a long trip and the staff was able to place us in before check in. We were relieved as we didn't want to have to kill time waiting for the villa to be ready. Being in the off season the resort was quiet but that was great for our friends and family as it was a very relaxing vacation. The resort is a bit spread out but we decided to walk as much as possible while we were there. There was a trolley available and certainly was nice when the kids were tired. The marina was great as we saw a number of manatees and pelicans. We didn't get to do as much as we wanted at the resort but we did enjoy ourselves in our villa and down by the pools. Captiva Island is a great place to vacation and this resort was a lot of fun to experience.
