First, I must say that Siesta Key and the Sara Sea Circle complex of condos is absolutely beautiful and the beach is amazing! However, the Captiva Beach Resort was the worse place I have ever stayed due to the arrogance and rudeness of the owner, Robert. We decided to take a short getaway from the East Coast of Florida for the weekend and came across the Captiva through this site. The reviews on this site were very misleading (the ones that say Robert is very nice). By first talking to Robert on the phone to book the room, he was very short and not "welcoming." We only stayed two nights and got to stay in 2 different rooms due to Robert's mistake of double-booking our room the second night. After checking in late Friday night, we were approached by Robert early Sat. morning and he told us we had to move. So, we ended up having to move our unpacked clothes and toiletries next door to another room. Robert didn't even apologize for the inconvenience. And, to top it all off we had to check-out at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. He said that he had someone checking in, which was not true, because we went to the beach until noon that day and I didn't see anyone in that room. Feeling that maybe I was over-reacting about Robert, I asked a local person in the same resort area and my opinion was confirmed. The individual said (among many other things that I can not write) that he is a very disgruntled man. Now I know why there were vacancies on a busy 4th of July weekend at Captiva Beach Resort, especially with the powerboat races going on that weekend, as well.
