“Great for a girls' weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Came here for a long girls' weekend, and are definitely glad we stayed here! Location is great - a 5 minute walk to the beach, and you can easily get up to Siesta Village via the 'free' taxi service (tips only), although honestly, we didn't find much to interest us in Siesta Village. It's also a short walk to a couple of restaurants and a market which more than sufficed for the weekend. Staff is very friendly. Room was very clean, and the kitchen was stocked with enough pots/pans/dishes etc for four. However, our room wasn't cleaned the first day, even after requesting service, although it was cleaned our second day. Rooms are definitely a more than a little dated and tired, though, and our bathroom was miniscule. There was barely enough room in the shower to turn around, and perhaps only a foot separating the sink from the shower. Wifi is very spotty - I could barely hold a connection for more than a couple of minutes at a time. That all being said, we thought it was a good deal (especially since the room came with two beds - other places in the area charged a lot more for that) and would definitely consider staying here again.

This was our second time staying here and it certainly won't be the last. Rooms were very clean, management was very involved. Big Show and Rufus Baker went out of their way to ensure our stay was pleasant and memorable and even managed to squeeze us in for an extra night's stay. I can't say enough great things about Captiva!

So glad we found this gem. Th e room is great. Clean and exactly what we needed/wanted. Its a laid back atmosphere where management is very involved. Upon meeting Ms Big Show I knew all the positive reviews were correct. She offered to help carry our things in. However, my husband joked that I had it no worries. I thought that was an especially nice gesture considering she was having her lunch at the time! Sandy was nice too. I will update as the days go by.

Only negative.....mother nature. As soon as we walked out ready to walk the very short distance to the beach a thunderstorm popped up. Beautiful lightning though! We can not wait for what hopefully is a quick Afternoon Florida shower, to pass. Then I can relax anf take in what is sure to be a gorgeous sunset.

Nice Place..Nice staff!

We like this place. We had about 50 of our family come in from NJ, Tampa, and Miami for a family vacation , to celebrate a dear cousin's 50th B-Day.
The place is kept very clean. The rates were very reasonable. The kitchen and bath areas do need updating but we understand that this is in the works.

The staff, Sandy and her team of Debra, Ben, Eryn, Anthony, Rufus, George and Rebecca tended to our every need and were very friendly and responsive. We would again like to thank you for your service and making my family's stay great!

We would highly recommend this place!

Siesta key is a great place to get away and hotel was very quiet but the room Is very dated and bed was horrible. Think 1960's or 70's cabinets and stove and bathroom. Bathroom had peeling wallpaper or hole in plaster not sure which and hole in base board by shower. Never saw any bugs so they must have sealed it well from the outside. Kitchen furnishings were lacking.... One coffee cup, one bowl one spoon, and coffee grounds from previous guest was still in coffee maker which really makes you wonder how sanitized the kitchen was before we arrived. The kitchen sink faucet barely delivered a stream of water so again it makes you wonder how well things are getting cleaned. Never had hot water no matter how long anything ran. Best we could get is luke warm. Someone needs to investigate shower at beach. Very strong order of waste water effluent coming from shower...with all the heavy rain maybe there is a leak??

My husband, 3 girls and I enjoyed our stay. The value of the Captiva is worth the trip from GA to Sarasota. The Big Show and rest of the staff... Very sweet! Comfortable, clean and kitchen is equipped. We walked to the beach via private path 3 mins time every morning. They provide u w a map of the area, Papaya brand toiletries and extra towels. Grill and pool on site.
