“Second visit to Paradise”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

My husband and I stayed at Tween Waters for the second time, this time To celebrate our anniversary. For the second time we felt like we were in paradise and did not want to leave!
We had a gulf front room with king bed. Small kitchenette in the room which enabled us to keep drinks, snacks and sandwich making supplies to bring a lunch across the street to the beach. We watched dolphins frolicking in the water from screened lanai. Delicious, filling buffet breakfast is served and is included in room rate, every a.m. offering fresh fruits, breads, cereal, yogurt, juice and coffee. Other items available to order with additional charge. We enjoyed a couples massage at the spa. Luxurious! We spent time in the pool but the best time was spent on the beach, enjoying the water, views of sea birds/pelicans, dolphins playing in the distance and boats sailing by while relaxing in rented beach chairs. The beach is covered in sea shells and had very few sun bathers, nice and quiet!
Service received, from check-in, at restaurant and check-out, was excellent. We will be back, for sure!
When we left the resort, we had lunch at the Bubble Room restaurant. Quirky but good food. We also enjoyed a sunset cruise with Cativa Cruises. Relaxing and fun time on the water. We watched a pod of several dolphins jump and play in the water and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset.
Tween Waters Inn is the perfect, quaint place to stay (recently placed on national historic register) and enjoy the quiet, relaxful pace of Captiva.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool will be noisy during the day while the pool is open. No matter what room...

We go to tween waters every year because of the great family experience. The rooms have small kitchens which is ideal for familws because you can bring snacks and lunch for kids. The breakfast is free and always fresh and beautifully presented. There is a marina and dockage is not expensive. Small quiet and old Florida setting. We live thus place!

This is a great resort, simple and laid back, not glam and glitz. Great pool, watersports and beach. Went for a day visit, did not get a room but they are beautiful little beach cottages and hotel buildings. Great food at the restaurants (we had lunch & dinner) great cocktails and entertainment.

It was a last minute vacation idea for me. Had booked another hotel on Sanibel Island and was very u satisfied with it and called up 'Tween waters and they were able to accommodate us on a last minute notice. The beach is stunning and water is clean. The pool deck is wonderful with the tiki bar. It was a wonderful stay and a great escape from Upstate NY and graduate school!

Dear Hulber1,

We glad that you were able to join us and we are honored that we were a part of “THE BEST VACATION EVER”. I myself am from upstate New York and attended undergraduate school there as well as graduate school in NYC. I know firsthand the need to get away for the pressures of school. Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

As we are from the uk we were quite nervous about having a wedding in a different country. We had a group of 26 guests fly over, 8 didn't stay at tween waters, but were made very welcome from all the staff. We couldn't of asked for Any more from this place, everything was perfect, in fact I could do it everyday of my life. When we arrived we had 4 people help us with bags, and take us to the rooms. The reception staff were possibly one of the friendliest i have met in my life, nothing was to much trouble. The swimming pool was beautiful and clean, and the beach was stunning.the night before the wedding the whole group
Had a meal at the old captiva house, we had a lovely meal, if you are looking for a cheap meal try the crows nest. Beautiful food, but 18% gratuity was slightly over the top for 26 of us!!! The groom and men stayed on the beach, and enjoyed using the volleyball net, ball supplied by reception. The girls stayed around the pool, and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and eating the delicious natchos, only $8.00, it fed 2-3 people, depends on appetite! We got our flowers from cape coral florist design, they are also from the uk, and moved out there, so communication was fantastic! We chose to have our own photographer and videographer, tween give alot of recommendations, but we decided on a company called Lewiscinema.com, photographer called Kevin, and side kick called Jeremy.they travelled 10hours from Pensacola, to capture our magical day, and nothing was to much trouble. We used an officiant named Robert Pitt, the ceremony was brilliant and communication was fantastic. We hired the kayak room,which looks out on the bay, couldnt be anymore perfect! As we are a laid back couple we chose the bbq, and swapped a few things from the other choices, to suit our needs, it was delicious, I don't know how they expected us to eat so much food!!! If you are worried about your wedding, there's no need! The wedding coordinator, sherry, has everything in hand, trust me!!! I'd like to thank tween waters, and their staff for everything!

Spent this last week at Tween Waters with our two kids (5 and 10) and had a marvelous time. I could go on all day about the great time we had but here is the short list. Beautiful property, lots to do for adults and kids alike. Great pool and pool bar, decent restaurants on property, very good daily breakfast, stunning beach on one side, bay on the other. Captiva and Sanibel offer plenty of activities our kids were never bored and that's saying something.

The best thing about Tween Waters however, is the staff. You get the impression when you are there that the staff really cares whether or not you have a good time and enjoy the hotel. As a very experienced traveler, that always rates highest on my list. All staff were friendly, helpful, informative and did what you asked of them, no complaints or nasty attitudes.

I highly recommend Tween Waters.

Dear Mike S.

Thank you very much for staying with us and sharing your experience. I am very glad that we “Exceeded Expectations” as the title of you review states. I certainly agree with you that the best thing about our resort is our staff. About a year ago our executive team met with our board or directors to develop our short and long term strategies. One of the results of those meetings was the redevelopment of our mission statement. We felt it was vitally important to present our employees with a powerful and easy to understand tool that highlighted our expectations of them and promoted consistent results. Our new mission statement which is; “to deliver a warm, friendly, and memorable island resort experience that provides value for all of our guests resulting in a desire to return,” has been embraced by our staff and the results have exceed our expectations. Thank you again for staying with us and sharing your kind words. I will be sure to pass along your comments to our staff. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
