My husband and I visited the South Seas Island Resort in the middle of February. The weather was warmer than where we come from but the Gulf was colder than I had anticipated although other people and their children still got in and swam. We stayed in the villas. The set up is great for families as you can bring...

This was our second visit to this incredible resort. Well maintained, super kid/family friendly and genuine caring service...we love it @ South Seas. While all interactions with team members were outstanding, we would like to recognize Amanda Collins at the Front Office, for her recommendations and professionalism in planning our long weekend. Congratulations to Shawn Farrell and the entire South...

We are scheduled to arrive at the resort March 4. We had a couple of very unpleasant conversations with the reservation group after booking our reservation. We have booked a two bedroom beach villa and found out after the fact that there were no elevators in some of these facilities. We have one person in our group who is unable...

We stayed in a marina view 2 bed unit the week before MA school vacation week which was ideal because it was not busy at all. Never had to wait at a restaurant, always got a lounge chair at the pools or beach, and children's center was quiet most days. We loved our location because we could see boats, manatees,...

Booked a trip during Thanksgiving weekend with my fiancee, her father, and teenage daughter. When we arrived, we were told that they have over-booked the weekend and had to move us to different accommodations. We had booked the same place we stayed in last time when just the two of us went, but we needed three bedrooms. The upgrade was...

I would like to start off by saying that this vacation was a prize I won through a local radio station contest. That being said, since I did not pay for the majority of the trip, I gave 4 stars. If I paid full price for this trip, I would probably rate it 3 stars. I'll start with the pros:...

Getting here, from when you reach Fort Myers, is a faff, speed limit and traffic make a 15 mile journey take nearly an hour. However, this resort is spread over a large area, very well tended and we had what they call a beachfront villa, this is actually an apartment (get second or third floor for the best view of...
