We stayed in the Sea Grape, gulf-view building during our stay. Lovely to sit out on the screened balcony, gazing at the horizon or simply reading a book. Insects were not an issue whatsoever.
Used the pool, hot tub, and fitness facitilities during our stay. The fitness area was well-maintained, and the pool provided a change of pace for the children when they grew tired of the beach.
Loved the protected turtle nest areas as we walked along the sandy beach. There weren't a ton of shells, but enough to add enjoyment to my children's stay!
The included continental breakfast was a nice surprise. There definitely was a large variety of items, and my children always found something to enjoy in the mornings. The tipping situation was a bit awkward, as I really did feel for the individual servers, but was truthfully put out tipping for someone clearing my plates away...I'm happy to do that myself!!
The front desk personnel were exceptional, as they went above and beyond assisting me with a mealtime request for my children. They didn't skip a beat and cheerfully accommodated my needs.
As a side note -- oddly enough, the resort website did not have gulf-view rooms available for the dates of my stay, but when I went onto Expedia, there they were!! So, I booked my stay through Expedia for my desired room -- what gives???
This is a unique place to stay on Captiva ~ I'm glad we gave it a try!!
