Overall it was a good hotel to stay at. Just be cautious because they charge your card without permission for a hold on in case you use it after the first charge when you check in. The whole resort is cashless. We did not know that. Everything it’s charged to the room. They also were doing construction which we were not aware of when we booked. The facility could be cleaned up a little more around the tennis courts. The rooms are very clean which I love. Free trolleys were great to bring you around the property. Sunset Beach is a must because they have food on premises.

We stayed at the Harborside Hotel on the North end . Great location right by the pool and Ship Store, The pools were really nice and friendly staff! The beach was beautiful. The rooms are a little outdated ( I had already read that in a prior review). Once you see the view m you will forget about it being a little out dated . It would have been perfect with a real small coffee maker and microwave. Be advised to ask what kind of tub/ shower you are getting- the “Roman tub “ was pretty high to try to get in and out off , so probably not a good choice if you have any hip / balance issues . ALSO BE AWARE - when you check in , the hotel requires a $1000 hold on your card - we were NOT aware of this . We would have booked anyway, but it’s worth noting. Anything you buy from The Pointe , Scoops and Slices , Ship Store ect…… goes right on the card . You get the balance back at check out . It was very convenient, but could be easy to over spend ( or the kids - if they have access can buy what ever they want ). It’s nice because you can literally just walk around and not worry about having cash or cards on you . Definitely recommend the Shell Cruise - Captiva Cruises . It was overall a wonderful relaxing vacation! Nice people and nice time

Absolutely loved our time in Captiva. Our condo was close to the beach but could’ve used some more kitchen tools. Shower head needs updating and was poor. Best beach and view ever!
