“Can't wait to come back!”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed the location, amenities, and most of all, the staff. The room was a 3rd floor Gulf view, which was wonderful. We spent just a few short days there and wish we stayed longer. The spa was relaxing, poolside was nice, and the beach is a very short walk across the street. The room was in clean, nice, and comfortable. Don't forget to check out the crabs races on Thursday night (corny but fun), and the money raised goes to the United Way. We can't wait to return with family.

We have stayed at Tween Waters perhaps 10-15 times over the years. Love Captiva (except Sanibel traffic in the Spring) with the perfect beaches and climate. Quaint village and restful locations with enough to do. Resort is great with a fantastic pool, boating, kayaking to Buck Key for untouched Florida nature, wonderful breakfasts, on site entertainment and nice dinners.
For those who complain about the price, go ahead and find anything less- especially if you cannot stay a whole week. Our room was nice but a tad worn. We will be back though.

This is the second time we have stayed at 'Tween Waters. The first time was over 10 years ago when it was not as large. The location can't be beat, but they have really crammed too many buildings on this site. The "water view" guest rooms seem small for the price and many of the bayside second floor rooms have minimal views of the water because of the height of the vegetation. Get a 3rd floor room. Also, the coupon books they give you are all to be spent within the resort. Be sure you get out and enjoy Sanibel, not just Captiva. The Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, Shell Museum and Crow (Clinic for Rehabilitation of Wildlife are all worth a visit.

Room Tip: Many of the bayside"water view" rooms on the 2nd floor barely view the water because the v...

Keehir,

Thank you for coming back to visit our resort and taking the time to share your review. I am glad that you enjoyed our location and the value of the coupon books that we provide guests that stay with us for 3 nights or longer. I couldn’t agree more that visitors to our islands should get out and explore all the wonderful things that make Sanibel and Captiva such a wonderful and unique destination. After all Arthur Frommer named Sanibel Island his favorite destination in 2012.

I do apologize that you found your water view guest room to be “small for the price”. For travelers like yourselves and for our future guests reading your review I would recommend visiting our website which has pictures and floor plans of all of our over 17 different rooming options. In addition I would encourage guests researching our property to talk to our onsite reservations agents who can explain all of our room types and can assist in selecting the accommodation that best meets your vacation expectations. Our accommodations range from standard guest rooms to 1, 2 and 3 bedroom suites and individual cottages with many different layouts and views of the bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Our mission is; “To deliver a warm, friendly and memorable island resort experience that provides value to all our guests resulting in a desire to return”. By including complimentary continental breakfast buffet, a resort coupon book, and offering discount 3, 5 and 7 night vacation packages without any hidden resort fees we hope you see the value in your experience with us. If not I would be happy to speak with you personally to discuss where we have missed the mark with your stay.

I, on behalf of all our staff, thank you for visiting us again. We do hope you will stay with us again when your travel plans bring you back to our beautiful islands.

Kind Regards

Doug Babcock

We had the best vacation ever at Tween Waters. We loved the size, location and views! We stayed on a boat at the Marina. We loved how easy it was to walk to the pool, beach and restaurant. The crab races were fun. The pool was great. The cottages looked so nice. We rented bikes and rode around the beautiful island. We also rented kayaks and paddled through the mangroves on Buck Key. What a blast! A big part of what made our stay so nice was Harry, the Harbor Master & his crew! Harry is always available to help & made us feel at home. We always travel to different places every year, but next vacation, we're going back to Tween Waters again!

Renovations were underway during our visit so workers were around and there was noise (expected). Our room had new appliances and bathroom.
Staff were helpful and accommodating. The resort is large with various room options Our room and deck faced the marina and island. It is a short walk across the road (speed limit for vehicles is 25 mph) to a fantastic beach. Lots to see including dolphins. There is an option to rent a cabana or chairs and umbrella. had to get there early to get any of them
We ended up staying a week instead of making our way further south.

Noisiest room I've ever stayed in. You could hear your neighbor; you could here the highway; your could hear everyone's TV and boy howdy could you hear the balcony doors open and close; the only thing I couldn't hear was the surf. The no smoking policy is a joke. There was so much smoke coming from the surrounding balconies, a forest fire would have been a welcome relief. The microwave was broken. The refrigerator was broken. If anyone on the staff had cared or apologized, these flaws could possibly be overlooked,but no one cared. No apology; no attempt to compensate you with a free cup of coffee. Truly, the front desk staff could have cared less. As if the room rates aren't exorbitant enough, they charge $20/day to sit on a beach chair and $15 to sit on their rusty bikes. Why not, you are a Captive audience. I won't be back! Many other rentals.

Room Tip: Nothing special about the ocean view. The bay view is much calmer (not the frenetic noise from const...

My family and I spent a week here on my wife's recommendation. While there are fancier resorts on Captiva, this one is a perfect fit for me! The location is what sets Tween Water appart. The resort is nestled between an expansive shelling beach, and a very calm harbor. The resort is very family-friendly and isn't as stuffy as the competition. There is great food available at the restaurant's, as well as phenomenal burgers and apps at the pool-bar. Nightly entertainment was great, including the crab races. Great ammenities all around, and a wonderful, friendly staff! I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Captiva, and we plan to return as soon as we can! Almost forgot to mention movie night....
the kids loved watching a movie from the pool on a large inflatable screen! NICE TOUCH!!
