sanibel or captiva

We are a couple in our 50's and trying to decide between the two. We are looking to go in July or August. We have never been to either place, Would like something with a resort type feel. Any suggestions?

A similar posting was made yesterday on this forum:


On Captiva two places have "resort type feel". Both are very nice.

Tween Waters Inn Resort

South Seas Island Resort

I'd go with Tween Waters on Captiva as a first choice. It is a bit livelier at night. South Seas Resort is a more beautiful spot. Both are great choices if you like to fish.

Sanibel it would be hard to say what would suit without a better idea of what kind of atmosphere you're looking for.

Tween Waters Inn has some very nice cottages and suites. They typically run a summer special (not on the cottages though) so be sure to ask.

I'm a third vote for Tween Waters on Captiva. Unless you want a much larger choice of nearby places to eat, or you plan to shop a lot, Captiva is more peaceful.

Thought I better edit: not to say that Sanibel is rowdy, but Captiva is just so Peaceful!
