Friendly staff and lots of things to do! Beautiful pool areas and great customer service

Property is huge. Seems like they own half of Captiva. The resort is a combination of hotel, time shares and privately owned places. So not your typical hotel/resort. Location is fabulous. Beach is beautiful.

Great location on the beach. Room had full kitchen but groceries were very expensive. Pool with water slide was closed. Resort has a lot of activities like yoga, tennis, kids camp etc but everything costs extra and is expensive. Resort fees is also high and is charged per person and not per room.

Pool area , marina and ship to cruise The garden were beautiful , all areas clean and good food in restaurants

There was a tremendous amount of disgusting dirty items in the room.

This place sucked. There was nothing to do, no amenities, everything was overpriced and there was no place to eat.

Awesome places, great location and family friendly! We will be back !

The resort is nice, has a lot of bars and restaurants. We stayed at the marina and enjoyed the view. I'd recommend this resort.

We had a wonderful time! Beautifully decorated resort and the staff at all areas were outstanding! We can’t say enough about south seas and are planning our next trip ASAP!

Unit was dated and dirty with need for updated-renovations.

Nice place, I think the resort should offer transportation (golf carts) for a reduced rate. $125 for one day is outrageous

South Seas Island Resort accommodations are overpriced. For the excessive amount we paid for two nights we expected a much higher end quality room. The carpets are dated and unclean. We had to request our bed linens changed and pillows,as they had a tobacco and perfume odour. Plastic drinking cups Really? I would expect real glass at South Seas and upgraded cleancoffee maker We had NO HOT WATER on the date of check out! Unacceptable . Thank you for the cold shower South Seas
