Captiva Hotels and Resorts - For the best Florida vacations, stay at any one of the island's wonderful accommodations!
First of all, you will find the 2 resorts, Tween Waters Inn and South Seas. They have all the amenities you hope to find for either a family trip or a fun getaway for 2.
Then, there are the cozy beach cottages of Jensens Marina and Twin Palm Cottages, and the spectacular beachfront views from Jensens on the Gulf.
Lastly, is the charming Captiva Inn, with unique rooms and cottages close to restaurants and the beach. Even though there are only 5 hotels and resorts, each one is different and you'll want to try each one. We were fortunate to have been able to do just that!
We had such a blast at each place that I have a hard time saying which is my favorite.
Tween Waters Inn is the first Captiva hotel you come to as you drive onto the island. The inn has cottages, suites, studios, and guest rooms are available with gulf or bay views, and up to 3 bedrooms.
You can dine at one of their 2 restaurants .......... try the casual Crows Nest which features the resort's popular crab races, or the romantic fine-dining of the Old Captiva House.
Grab lunch at the Oasis Pool Bar while you tan and swim, or take a break from the beach.
Use their marina for cruises, charters, paddle boarding, or kayaking ....... shop for resort wear, have a massage at their spa.
Think of Tween Waters for weddings, parties, and meetings. Package deals and specials are available during off-season when you can pay more reasonable prices.
Jensens on the Gulf is just a bit further up the road Tween Waters and is the place to go if you want to be right on the beach. This small resort is quiet, comfortable, and romantic ....... perfect for a honeymoon!
They feature 1- and 2-bedroom suites and cottages, with kitchens, and
living and dining areas along with lanais that face west over the gulf.
Grills and beach equipment are available, and village restaurants and shops are fairly close by.
Prices are fairly high because of the beach location, but it's well worth it!
Jensens Marina and Twin Palm Cottages is next up on Captiva Drive and features cozy 1- and 2-bedroom cottages that remind me of Cape Cod.
It's a popular place for boaters and anglers because they have a small yet full-service marina with bait and tackle shop, boat rentals, boat rides, fishing charters, and water taxi.
Families are welcome .......... grills and picnic tables are available over by their tiki huts.
Jensens was the second least expensive place we stayed at in Captiva.
Captiva Island Inn
is right on Andy Rosse Lane in the heart of Captiva's village, where
many of the restaurants and shops are ........... and best of all, you
can walk to the beach!
Rooms, suites, cottages, and villas are scattered between several buildings on both sides of the street.
Each accommodation is quaint and unique, most have kitchens, and some have living and dining areas.
This is the place to stay if you want to be in town, and prices are the least expensive on the island.
South Seas Island Resort takes up about half of the northern part of Captiva Island and wow, it's quite the vacation paradise!
There are many types of accommodations to choose from, either bayside or gulfside ............ suites, villas, hotel rooms, condos, timeshares, and single family homes.
Fabulous pools .......... one of which you can see in the photo below, and stretches of beach, a
golf course, gorgeous spa, full-service marina, restaurants, stores,
shops, kid's activities, bike rentals, and a sea school will give you a
trip to remember at this most luxurious of Captiva Island Resorts.
It's a beautiful spot for weddings, reunions, meetings ........ and the time of your life! Look for off-season deals to save money on your vacation as South Seas is the most expensive of the Captiva hotels.
As you can see from these Captiva hotels and resorts, there is something for everyone ...... and I do hope I've enticed you to come to Captiva!
