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…

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.

If I had written the review at the beginning of my stay, it probably would have been fewer stars. Upon arrival, we were assigned a beach villa that had mold on the curtains and stains on the couch. The staff moved us to another villa with no problem, and after that the rest of the week was spectacular. I love that in addition to the main pool, there are many smaller pools scattered throughout the resort. The villa was nice, clean, and comfortable with direct beach access. The beaches all have chairs, unlimited towels, and staffers. Some, but not all, of the beaches have bar service. The resort offered pretty much everything you could want, including a free trolley service for transportation to all areas of the resort. There are restaurants, bars, shopping areas, and activities including yoga, water sports, running trails, tennis courts, etc. This is a family resort, so you would have to venture out of the resort to find any type of night life. I would definitely return.

We were looking for a quiet spring break vacation area and we found it. area is very family friendly and we liked having multiple options for activities through the day onsite. Pros: 1. Quiet 2. Large Property/very diverse activity selection Cons: 1. older property could stand some updating and refurbishing but it does appear they are working on it. 2. If you are addicted to or have to have wifi, bring your own, the wireless system is no better then dial up. 3. Housekeeping system is a little wonky , they will not come in the room without you being there. SO no sprinting out to the beach etc. Had to call a few times to have them drop in for cleaning. Overall we were happy with everything

Beautiful island and beautiful resort, staff is friendly and helpful, good choices for food and bar. Only thing worth mentioning is based on room rate I assumed the rooms would be luxurious. They're nice, but not luxury.

Historically, we have vacationed in The Keys. This spring break we were up for trying a new destination. Today, we just returned from a 6-night/7-day stay at South Seas Island Resort, and wished we could have stayed longer. The primary reason for 3 stars is our accommodations were not what we expected. Outdated is one thing to deal with, but the cleanliness of our 1 bed/2 bath villa was terrible (e.g. the outside of our refrigerator was covered with looked like marinara sauce, carpet in bedroom looked old and felt damp, we encountered 2 large cockroaches on 2 different days). Place just didn't look or feel clean to us. Daily housekeeping was okay. We were surprised by the sometimes long waits for trolley (there appears to be only 1 trolley operating at the resort), wished there were water fountains along the 1.7 mile stretch from the north to south side of the islands, and restroom facilities on South Beach. What we did love about the resort is the location on Captiva Island (breath-taking!!), loved the different activities offered, variety of pools and having close access to 2 great beaches (especially Sunset) and watching the sunsets. Loved the tiki bar and view of the Gulf of Mexico from the bar and pool. Our son LOVED the 'scoutabout' mission on the resort (great entertainment, not to mention learning about the island's great points of interest), and the waterslides were huge hits. Enjoyed seeing dolphins a number of times and going on a cruise to with Captiva Cruises. The only thing that would get us to go back is better accommodations, that's pretty much it. Captiva Island is great -- miss it already!

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

So I made reservations in February for November of the same year through Hotwire. Yet when I call to check on my reservation with the resort, they said they put me in a room with one King Bed. Meanwhile, Hotwire guarantees a room that accommodates 4 adults. NEITHER the South Seas Resort nor Hotwire will alter the reservation to simply make it two beds instead of one. They both outright refuse, and blame it on the other. No one can help me 8 months away from check in? Seriously? I would understand if I was trying to cancel, change, alter, revoke, or delete my reservation. But I am not. I want to stay there. I want to like it - I want to use Hotwire again. But instead of attempting to please a customer who just pent $600 with them, they both gave me the middle finger. Neither one of them can help me. Both customer service experiences were horrid, and I will be STRONGLY recommending that no one use either service in the future. This is how you treat customers these days? Wow. EDIT - 3/2016 After they fixed the issues with the first stay, we decided to try again as a family and stay at a Marina Villa. It was simply amazing, and there were few if any hitches. It was a pleasant stay, super relaxing, and the best place to stay on the island for the price and amenities. Highly recommended!
