South Seas Resort
in Captiva Island
the south seas plantation island resort is one of the best resorts in southwest florida. it is located on the northern end of captiva island and has both gulf and bayside beaches. the south seas plantation resort offers all of the amenities of a first class resort. it is an expensive place to stay during the winter tourist season but is an exceptional value in the off season. in the off season you can book a single room for $ 149 per night which is a very good price for a southwest florida resort.
Directions: northern end of captiva island.
Booking into South Seas Plantation reminded us of standing in-line for car rental, but check in was pretty quick and we were soon being whisked off to our holiday apartment on the shuttle service that continually circles the resort.
First impressions were of an up market version of DisneyWorld - the shuttle was a set of open carriages towed behind a vehicle resembling a locomotive. Forgot the bucket and spade.
Unique Quality: On arrival at our home for the next two weeks we were more than pleasantly surpirsed.
We had been allocated a ground floor, beach front apartment. The kitchen was fully fitted with every implement necessary and more.
The condo was spotless and there was a full maid service.
Lounge, two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and kithen, with a lanai with table and chairs.
The beach was 5 metres from the lounge.
Directions: From Fort Meyers, drive across the causeway onto Sanibel Island then just follow the road north to Captiva Island. You can't miss the Plantation.
No other place like it!
We come here often. This is a resort located at the northern tip of Captiva Island. It was originally an old pineapple plantation with lots of history - pirates, etc. There are many choices for accommodations at the resort. We have always stayes at the Tennis Villas. All accomodations have their own pools nearby. Beach is easy walking distance from all. Hurricane Charlie did a lot of damage but Captiva will rebound! I was last there in June of 2006 and many things were still closed. I was able to see a lot of things I had never seen before because they had been hidden for years by the mangrove swamps. It is not the same but is still a wonderful, relaxing place to visit!
Unique Quality: There is a trolley that runs throughout the resort. You can get on and off wherever you wish. We always take the trolley to Land's End and walk around the point collecting shells at Redfish Pass. Be sure to wear beach shoes and carry a bag for your treasures!
Directions: From Fort Myers, go to Sanibel and drive north as far as you can go. A bridge will take you to Captiva. South Seas is at the end of the road.
South Seas Resort
The South Seas Resort is Captiva Island's best bet for a romantic weekend or a family getaway. It seems unlikely that one place can be both at the same time, but the sprawling resort is located on the north end of the island has a wide range of options in accommodations and activities that make it ideal for couples or families. The resort consists of a series of buildings containing rooms and suites. Each building complex has its own pool and jacuzzi and all are just steps away from a private beach. There are several restaurants within the resort, from simple deli sandwiches to gourmet food, providing a range of eating options.
Sadly, South Seas Resort was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Charley. The resort is currently closed to guests in most respects. Little by little, the property is reopening, but the rooms are not expected to be available until July, 2005. On a more positive note, the restaurant and shops are open and the entire property is being reconstructed so that, when it does open, it will be even better.
Unique Quality: Secluded location on one of Florida's most beautiful beaches, family friendly atmosphere which includes kids programs and the beautiful scenery and unspoiled views of remote Captiva Island.
