Booked a trip during Thanksgiving weekend with my fiancee, her father, and teenage daughter. When we arrived, we were told that they have over-booked the weekend and had to move us to different accommodations. We had booked the same place we stayed in last time when just the two of us went, but we needed three bedrooms. The upgrade was...

I would like to start off by saying that this vacation was a prize I won through a local radio station contest. That being said, since I did not pay for the majority of the trip, I gave 4 stars. If I paid full price for this trip, I would probably rate it 3 stars. I'll start with the pros:...

Getting here, from when you reach Fort Myers, is a faff, speed limit and traffic make a 15 mile journey take nearly an hour. However, this resort is spread over a large area, very well tended and we had what they call a beachfront villa, this is actually an apartment (get second or third floor for the best view of...

We love Captiva and the South Seas Resort and highly recommend. Besides the beauty of the property even when it is is busy season it never feels crowded. What I really wanted to write about thought was the exceptional management at the resort. We had an issue with my young daughter and asked for different accommodations - even though there...

Stayed one night to visit the island. Room wasn't ready when we arrived just after noon but they checked us in so we could use the beach, which was very lovely and included chairs and umbrellas (which it should considering the resort fee on top of the high-priced room (over $250 not including taxes). The second floor room was very...

What a relaxing, inviting place! We stayed at the Bayside Villas...the pool was practically private (one day I was the only one there) - only problem the bathrooms are locked for owners only. A short walk to the beach and took advantage of the chairs, towels, and umbrellas (no charge). Every staff member is friendly. We used the shuttle to...

We wanted to get away to warm weather for 6 days so booked a trip through an agency. We arrived after a very long day (awake at 4 a.m. to catch a plane). The villa was roomy, the view looked out onto the boat docks on the bay side. We planned on fixing meals, as usual, to save some money....

This resort is set at the end of Captiva Island, and away from any crowds and noise. Its quite large and encompasses many different types of accomodations and styles, including a hotel, time shares, private homes and condos. The beaches are gorgeous, complete with beautiful birds and manatees. The resort falls down in the hotel rooms: these are in serious...

We were here because of Offshore Sailing School. We were there for a week. We would not go back to the resort. We figured out that this was a convention hotel when a yacht show moved in and we saw the catered food - much better than anything we'd seen in a restaurant. If you are at the hotel while...
