While on vacation in Naples, Florida last year, we drove to Captiva for a cruise to Guseppa Island. It was then that I discovered the incredible beauty of Captiva and the South Seas Resort.

Sunset Beach is a wonderful spot to hang on the beach all day and await a magnificent Captiva sunset. We've been coming here for years. Delbert, Jonathan and the rest of the beach crew at Sunset Beach work very hard at making sure every guest has a chair, towel, umbrella. Very hard workers!!! Thank you for taking care of us.

Second, the best location to sit by a pool is at the end of Captiva,...

Upon arrival, we were told that our reservation for a 2 bedroom Marina Villa wouldn't be possible because of an air conditioning problem and that we were being "upgrade" to a Gulf Cottage. Granted, the view is amazing and access to a lovely beach is easy. The "cottage" was dirty and dated. Upholstery and lampshades were stained, shutters were broken,...
