Great location and the grounds were nice. The rooms were average at best and needed to be freshend up. The extra charge of $15 per day per adult seemed a little strange to me. Bar tenders were nice but the cost of the drinks were high for what you
got. The "resort" was a little dated and tired feeling. Loved Captiva and found nice places in the villiage to eat. Would suggest exploring the local food haunts.

Review of South Seas Island Resort

This hotel will lie to you!
If these snakes offer you 'resort credits' you will never receive them. If you try to confirm that you have them at check-in you'd better tape record it, but in my experience, they'll just stonewall you anyway. I confirmed my credits at
check-in (a struggle for the deskman to admit that I booked the hotel with them, but he finally did) only to be flatly denied any credits at checkout). This company's corporate culture is ingrained to ream its guests--"call the accounting office," "amanda will return your call." This is not acceptable and [...]should not be booking this hotel any more and American Express should not be allowing its customers to lose their money here. SSIR is a stench.
