“thanks ladies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

we booked this hotel last year through an online service with no problem. did it again this year but when we arrived were very disappointed with our room.to the rescue came sandy the manager, eryn, and the amazing "big show". in a short time they were able to change our room. we were very comfortable and had another great vacation at siesta key.the hotel is older but comfotable and tidy. all the staff does a great job. pool and private beach are outstanding.would definetly go back again next year.once again thanks so much ladies of captiva beach resorts. tim and rebecca mccarthy

We spent my birthday at the Captiva Beach Resort and had an extraordinary time! The room was beautiful and spacious-very clean and comfortable. The staff is so friendly and helpful-thank you to Sandy and "The Big Show" for your kindness, generosity and making us feel so welcome. The beach is gorgeous with its powder sand and aqua water-a fantasy land! The resort has a lovely heated pool and is surrounded by flowers and palm trees-very lush. The lighting in the evening creates a magical feeling. We felt like royalty and would love to live here! We can't wait to book our next vacation at the Captiva-very soon! We have promoted this lovely resort to all of our friends and family. Thank you for a very special birthday! Susan and Greg

Room Tip: We were given a gorgeous and spacious two bedroom suite, but all of the rooms are nice.

Had a great visit in November. Our only complaint was that the beach wasn't closer, but they offered a free limo ride to 1 of 2 Clay Aiken concerts in the area and for 2 friends. See more at http://ccol4him.blogspot.com/2012/12/excellent-clayventuresi-in-florida.html

Thanks for choosing to stay at Captiva Beach Resort! I glad to hear that you received the "Celebrity Treatment" during your visit, because in our eyes every guest is a VIP! Although a short walk from our front door, Crescent Beach is a beautiful site for all to see and enjoy. Thanks again for staying with us and hope to welcome you back again soon to Siesta Key!

This place is a great location. It's literally about a 3 minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen.
We were very happy with our accomodations. We had booked a "queen small" room but when we arrived, we found we'd been upgraded to a one-bedroom apartment-type situation. Very spacious and pleasant.
"The Big Show" helped us find a parking spot for our visitors for one day from Tampa...which would have been impossible to find otherwise. Staff were very nice and accomodating.
In reading some of these other reviews, I would question what the heck these people were griping about? Nice place, nice people, clean rooms, fabulous beach, nice pool... what exactly did you want that you did not get? We would definitely stay here again!

This place was dirty, small, the curtains were falling off the rod, there was rust in the bathtub, walls were so thin we could here EVERYTHING in the room next door like they were in the same room and it was expensive for what you got. I was quoted 160.00 for a Saturday night Feb. 16th and found out later we were charged 170.00. I would NEVER come back to this place. I realize it was "season" but it was really over priced for such a crappy room.

My family always spends a week at the beach to celebrate a wedding anniversary. One of our favorite places, of course, is Siesta Key. Looking for accomodations with a good location and a decent price, however, is not always an easy task. After searching through multiple websites, we finally landed on Captiva Beach Resort. We had stayed at an adjacent property a couple of times on Sara Sea Circle in the past, but unfortunately their availability and prices weren't conducive to going back. Lucky for us we found this property. Well maintained and friendly service is what you will get. A clean room and steps from the beach is what you will get.
Overall, it has a retro, 50"s time warp motor lodge feel that is very appealing and kinda funky all at the same time. No-you won't get turndown service, chocolates on your pillow and 24 hour room service. If I had wanted that, I could have stayed somewhere else and paid 5 times what I did, and probably wouldn't have had a better time. For the price and the location, this place is a gold mine. Thanks for a great visit, and hope to make it down there again soon!

This was our second stay at Captiva Beach Resort and loved it both times. Sandy, Deborah (The Big Show), Mark, Rufus, and all the staff are excellent and treat you as they would family and friends. They took extra care of my mom who uses a walker. Anything we needed was provided. We stayed in the two bedroom, one bath with full kitchen. Some of the other rooms are extremely small but this unit is like a small apartment! Very clean rooms & grounds. It is a short walk to the beach past 4 or 5 other motels but love the staff so much we decided we didn't want to try a closer motel. Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Two bedroom with full kitchen is best for multiple people. Eat in and save money.

Dear oopie414, as we like to say around here, "your family is our family." I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us at Captiva Beach Resort. As you had mentioned, our 2 bedroom Suites are VERY SPACIOUS for families, we highly recommend for all guests to upgrade if we have them available, as it makes your beach-side experience even more enjoyable. Thank you again for such a warming review; this is our business, but people are our passion!
