Expert Review

A former key lime plantation, this resort’s old-world allure remains, with verandas and manicured landscapes. Located at the north end of Captiva Island, forty minutes from the causeway, the 330-acre resort encompasses about one-third of the island. The grounds include nearly 20 pools, two hot tubs and the H2WHOA! water park, a championship 9-course golf course, 19 tennis courts, two and a half miles of private white-sand beach with lots of water sport options, and a yacht harbor and bayside marina from which fishing excursions depart. A trolley service assists guests across the expansive property. Proximity to preferred activities should be taken into account when choosing accommodations, which run the gamut from comfortable one-bedrooms to expansive 3,400 square foot villas, all tastefully appointed with modern furnishings and understated elegance. The tropical tranquility and range of onsite activities makes staying put tempting, but there are also many enticing attractions nearby.
