“Close to the beach, reasonable rates”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is not the most modern hotel. However, it is walking distance to the beach on a small road/path within the Sarasea Circle enclave of hotels. You have access to the beach and to a pool. The rooms are outdated but include what you need, bed, shower, fridge, stove, big screen TV and WiFi. Best of all, the rates are very reasonable. We've stayed in a couple of the hotels within the enclave and both were of the same ilk, outdated but convenient.

handslol Thank you for your review. Yes, our rooms are old Florida style and most resorts in the Circle are the same. We hope to see you return to Captiva in the near future.

We only stayed 2 nights, is somewhat outdated, although the said they had remodeled this year, maybe other rooms but not ours. From other reviews I have read it does not even sound like the same place. They never cleaned our room even after we left the tag on the door for maid service, the second day we had no clean towels and no coffee for the pot. I went to the office, all he said was that he was going to look into it and gave me 2 bags of coffee for the morning. Also they did not have a hair dryer in the bathroom. On the pro side the WI-FI worked excellent.

Sylrin45 Thank you for sharing your review. We apologize for your room not having any service. The hair dryers we keep at the front office, in the past when dryers were in rooms they have gone missing. If you forget to pack any toiletries always check with the front office and we will accommodate you the best we can. We hope to see you stay at Captiva in your future visits to Siesta Key.

My family and I keep coming back to The Captiva Beach Resort in Siesta Key, Florida. We absolutely love this place! They always take care of us here! We will continue to stay here again and again! Our room is so clean and so elegant! Another reason we keep coming back is because of The Big Show and her trusty side-kick, Side Show! We just love them so much!!! The Big Show goes out of her way to make us feel so welcome and to keep everything nice and neat! We are one lucky family to have found The Captiva Beach Resort! They are our now a part of our family, as well! Can't wait to go back next year!!! This place is a must, everyone!!!

Room was spotless and so COOL. Beds were clean and comfy. Faucet was unique in bathroom and a kitchen light that changed colors for a night light show was a bonus. Ran into the former Governor of Florida who was staying in one of the units!

Great location, just a short walk to the beach. We were upgraded to a larger room which was a nice surprise. The rooms appear to have been recently updated and there were some nice touches. The one bedroom king suite is almost like a small apartment. The only downsides were that the tv remote did not work so we were not able to turn on the livingroom tv. Told the front desk about it but maintenance never came to fix it. We never had anyhousekeeping, despite putting the maid service request sign on the door. When we came back from the beach it was turned the other way to show do not disturb. And the free wifi didn't work which is not unusual for any motel. All in all we had a great time and would visit this motel again. I checked on other places and for the location and the money this was the best bet.

Went to Siesta Key for the weekend. Stayed in room 27 and it was awful. The bathroom was full of ants, hair and sand on the floor. We bought food and decided to cook there. I attempted to turn on the oven and it didn't work. The housekeeping is a joke. I told the girl I needed more towels and she set them on the chair outside of the room. I put the sign on the door requesting that the room be cleaned and she never showed up. This will be the last time we stay at this "motel". Only pro is there proximity to a wonderful beach.

I must say that Captiva is truly a gem ... We have stayed there for many years now .. It is very clean, friendly and we always look forward to each year of vacationing with family and friends at Captiva at Siesta Key! It is very Family Friendly, Our young daughter has been here since birth and she now at the age of 6 knows all the staff and loves the Captiva.. They offer beach toys for the kids to use at the beach so you don't have to haul your own down or spend money on beach toys to use for the time you are there!!! They have awesome coffee in the lobby with some breakfast danish every morning .. (She knows exactly where to go in the morning for her danish) !!! I have read some complaints in how small the rooms were etc .. We seriously spend sleeping hours in our room and when we wake up we hit the beach or using the free shuttle service offered by several companies in Siesta Key (We use Jerry's) we will go down to the village and for a small tip to Jerry ..we can shop, Eat or have cocktails and the shuttle will return you right back to Captiva ....When we vacation on Siesta Key the last thing we want to do is spend time in our room .. (and we have never had an issue with the size of the rooms they are perfect for a single person or a family of 4 they do have 2 two bedroom that are amazing as well for larger families) We have always been treated so wonderful by all the staff ... We love the fact that we can just pack our cooler and walk 400 steps to the beach and enjoy the nice rental chairs they offer at the beach to just be billed to our room .. For those of you who have never been to Siesta Key, it is truly paradise! Captiva has two different buildings .. Yes it isn't a huge place but it is so quaint and comfortable that just sitting in the courtyard having conversation and meeting people from all over the world .. (Many who we have remained friends with over the years ) and we see them come back to the Captiva year after year! The service is wonderful ... I have to tell you about "Big Show" She is one amazing person and if she could be cloned ... there would be competition all around the world because she is so informative and a very hard worker.. Over the years of course we have gotten to know her better each time .. and she treats all of the customers with the highest pleasurable customer service and ALWAYS has a smile on her face ...And she works hard to clean these rooms to make sure the next couple..family .. or person has just as nice as of stay as the last .... I will say I understand that someone can not work 7 days a week .. But we sure missed her on her off days!!! This year we had the pleasure of meeting her husband "The Side Show" .. He is such a pleasurable man to talk to and we really enjoyed our visit with him... So helpful and a hard worker!!! We really look forward to next year once again to see them both!!! We were there during a wedding this year. It was such a great time .. No we were NOT in the wedding party or even invited to the wedding .. however .. the staff made us very informed of everything that was taking place .. and the whole wedding attendees and Bride and Groom were so fun!! We were able to sit in the courtyard with and just hang out ... Life long friends were made once again! I normally hesitate to tell people about little hidden gems at places as we do not want to ever be turned down to do the place being to busy lol however .. I could not hold back any longer .. This is a wonderful place and I look forward to many many many years of spending time and watching our young daughter grow up knowing one of her Vacation spots will be there when she is older and can take her family to the same place!!! We will stay here year after year!! We call direct to book our rooms ..That way there isn't a third party involved .. At Captiva they are VERY Customer service friendly and they will do what they can to make sure your stay is a great vacation!!!

Room Tip: If you are looking for a beautiful, memorable, affordable get away .. You have just found your dest...
