Thanks, +The Huffington Post and +Jeanenne Tornatore for including #SouthSeas  in your list of top family resorts!
Families looking for a classic resort experience with activities they can do together in a slow-paced, relaxing environment will find that there are still plenty of great choices.

Local expert +Gina Birch provides some insight on #SouthSeas .  What are your travel plans for the fall?
If you're truly looking to get away from it all, but still have access to great amenities and adventure, put South Seas Island Resort into your GPS. This tropical gulf-to-bay resort on the beautiful Fort Myers barrier island of Captiva has almost any kind of accommodation you could imagine, a beach full of shells, a waterfront golf course, a refreshing spa, boating and lots of activities to keep the kids busy so you can have some quiet time.

Peace and Paradise at Captiva’s South Seas Island Resort By Pamela Jacobs   When it comes to travel, the word “luxury” is relative. For some people, it means beautiful scenery; for others, it’s pampering and relaxation. For many, though, regardless of the destination, luxury travel is all about an escape—an escape from home and from…

Staff and Housekeeping were outstanding. Beaches were great and the staff there to assist you did a great job. Room and bathroom a bit outdated but kept really clean. The pool staff was all over you offering assistance. My only issue was the WI-Fi where unless you were next to the router the service was erratic. Also the TVs were great all 1080p LED flat screen but the service was 780 which left much to be desired.

Thanks for staying at South Seas Island Resort and sharing your experience, Dan. We're glad you found the service to be outstanding and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. With warm regards, Neil Swetz Dir of Guest Services, South Seas Island Resort

The 1000 dollar a night villa included moldy ceilings and bathrooms, stained tile, absolutely understocked cookware i kitchen and no room service provided by the hotel. That was the highlight of my review. Now to the negatives; the pool area was swarmed with radioactive seagulls that would probably take a french fry out of your mouth if you didnt swallow it whole. The hotel staff - including the concierge person were rude like they had a doctorate in it. Everytime more and more rude. Their new years eve party was sad and the food in harbourside grill was just above ok. To top off our trip, the people and employees of captiva are so incredibly unfriendly! No one seems happy and everyone snaps at you for asking a question. So to be quite honest, unless you 1. Own a 10M dollar property on the beach 2. Have 10k a week to rent one 3. Are spendig the day on the beach only Captiva is a don't!

Fantastic! Beautiful resort, all the amenities and superb staff. Expensive but worth it. Views are amazing.

Thank you for sharing your 5-Star review with us. It sounds like you had a very memorable stay at South Seas Island Resort. Between the staff, amenities and views it sounds like a return trip will need to be in the future. Thank you once again for your stay. With Warm Regards, Neil Swetz Dir of Guest Services

Nice resort with a quaint location. The property is large and spread out which can be a little challenging. Our room was in need of some upkeep. Overall, a good experience, though.

For the fortune our family paid to stay at this resort for 5 nights, we were incredibly disappointed for what we were expecting out of a google 4 star resort. Where do I start? Our group stayed in 4 beach villa condos.... Understaffed, broken and leaking refrigerators (reported to staff, but not fixed), lack of beach towels, holes in the wall, pictures missing in condos, broken windows that don't shut, pool furniture and trash thrown in the pool from New Year's Eve parties and not cleaned up by staff, lack of kitchen utensils for what you'd expect in a condo with a kitchen... Basically, what I am describing is what I would compare to your average Holliday Inn. Please save your hard earned money and go elsewhere. Paid well over 20k for parents 40th anniversary weekend... Would have been much better renting out an entire Holliday Inn and then lighting the rest of our money on fire! Only thing that we enjoyed was the sunshine and great company! Yikes!

Pretty much nothing good to say. Room ready upon arrival? No. Staff around to help? No. Decent Wifi? No. 4 star room? Not even close. Quiet? No. Walking away feeling like you got decent value out of your stay....not a chance. Just the unfortunate feeling of being robbed.

Amazing vacation. Relaxing. If you are looking for crazy night life. This is not the place for you. Great for romance and families. Trolley service included with your stay is a plus. Great pools. Wonderful sunrise and sunsets. Dolphin and manatee right in the harbor. Beautiful marina if you have a boat. Starbucks and Doc Fords Rum Bar great. Plenty to do. Can't wait to go back.
