We stayed at Jensens twin palms last weekend. Great fishing resort with clean cottages well equipped and with central air. Great tackle shop, even had a boat battery I needed. Gas at the dock, live shrimp, this is not the Four Seasons Hotel but if you like flats fishing or running offshore, this is a fisherman so dream vacation spot.

Jensen's Twin Palm Cottages and Marina was the perfect place to stay during our mini vacation to Captiva Island. The resort epitomizes the truest term of old Florida. The suite we had overlooked the Inter Coastal waterway and was large and comfortable. Our suite was absolutely clean and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable and fun. The... More

We had the Best Fishing Guide ever! Josh, based out of Jensen's Marina. Josh was so personable and had such a great attitude & passion for fishing unlike some guides that are just out there collecting the money & not putting you on fish. Josh knew exactly were to go and put us on fish immediately. We maxed out on... More

Our family rented pontoon boats at the Marina for a special day trip while visiting in Sanibel/Captiva. I can't speak highly enough of the staff. The equipment functioned well & the staff was highly efficient, professional, and accommodating to our group.

Just wanted to commend all of the people at Jensen's for their device and helpful information while my family vacationed on Captiva the week of July 16th. We rented fishing equipment and everybody there was super helpful in giving fishing tips for both the bay and in the ocean. Every time we stopped, the people there were friendly and very... More

Stayed 3 nights. On approach the accommodation doesn't look anything special, but the rooms are great. Spotlessly clean, well decorated, great aircon, superb outside dining area all screened in so no bugs!! The guys running Jensens are fantastic, very friendly and helpful and laid back about everything. Superb location for everything. 2 min walk to grocery store and restaurants. 5... More

Grandma, Mom, Dad and granddaughter.... We spent 3 nights in Cabin #4 (which we named Tidey Whitey) and it was a sheer pleasure! Super clean and comfortable! I would stay here again in a heart beat:-) We were within easy walking distance of the Gulf beach, restaurants and shops.

Didn't know what to expect staying at a marina😁. But Jensens was a find of the perfect sort. Tucked away behind the palms but close enough to all the action on captiva. Best .. Manatees swim close to the docks each morning so we took our coffee down for the view. Simply furnished but clean and location location location. We... More
