2/10 Poor

Beautiful place, but stay elsewhere
Everyday, there was an issue with the room, leaking bath tub, pouring water from the ceiling, no coffee and then no cups and then no maid service, and the manager on duty would not return phone calls.

Needs updating
Old building bad service. Spend and get a beach bungalow. Don’t bother with the bay view rooms the building has not been updated since the 70s.

We just returned from our 3rd trip to South Seas Island Resort in Captiva Island, FL. It is so beautiful! Like paradise. Some rooms could use an update, fresh paint and clean up. However, it does not take away from the beauty of the island and the resort amenities. It is a wonderful place for a family vacation, girls weekend or romantic couples trip. I highly recommend staying here!

6/10 Good

Property was beautiful, most staff was very helpful. That said, found this to be horrible value for money. There were just too many things that were a little disappointing that added up. Broken refrigerator part, palmetto bug that took us a text and 2 phone calls to get removed, nobody staffing Skullywags despite the Scout About game telling us to go there to claim prize, nobody brought towels despite texting us to ask if we wanted anything and us immediately responding with "yes please, 3 towels", no beach towels by the resort pools, trolley tracker inaccurate.

6/10 Good

South Seas Beach villas show their age, and you can see the hard years of use they've had. Visible, low quality upgrades and poor maintenance were apparent throughout. Furniture and lighting were dated. Carpet needed replacement. Kitchen lacked necessities like a cutting board, tea kettle, baking sheet, coffee filters (which were requested but not delivered). Can't beat the location, but at nearly $1000 per night, I felt fairly well taken. We won't be returning.
