“Great location but not your typical hotel experience.”
Reviewed 14 May 2012 via mobile

To be fair, I didnt research the place before I got here so my expectations were that of hotels that I've stayed at. The location was perfect, a 2 minute walk to a beautiful beach where you can rent a pair of chairs and umbrella for $20. The room was clean and spacious. The rooms are pretty sound proof; there was a wedding going on outside and we didnt hear a thing when we went to retire. However, I didn't realize that there was no maid service. And because we were there for just a couple of nights, and who wants to clean up on a vacation, the room didn't stay tidy for long. The office people were very nice. Parking was an issue there was always someone parked at our assigned spot. Overall it was not a bad experience. As long as you aren't looking for that typical hotel stay experience where you leave your room in the morning and when you get back from your outing the room is tidied up again, you should enjoy the experience. Think of it as if you rented a condo for awhile.

Dear guest, I'm sorry to hear that you did not fully enjoy your stay with us. We strive for perfection, and will take your comments to heart. As you had mentioned, we do provide limited housekeeping service on an as-needed basis, or every 3 days. We are more than happy to provide full service to our guests who request it, but seeing as we are a very popular destination resort many of our vacationing guests opt out of full service on a daily basis. I hope that this answers your concern, if you have any further comments please feel free to email us at info@captivabeachresort.com and we would be more than happy to address them for you. Thanks again for staying with us and look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to Siesta Key!

Last weekend 30 plus "girls" from the class of 1974-75 reunited for the first time in many years. We had a wonderful time thanks to Sabrina's help in reserving the perfect set ups. The rooms were intimate, comfortable, and clean (thanks to Debra). We will be returning!!!

Room Tip: Ask Sabrina, she will get just what you need.

We usually stay at another Sara Sea Circle hotel, but needed a bigger space this time. The room was HUGE! We had #29 and it had 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, formal dining area and living space for a very reasonable price, better than our one bedroom escape across the street.

The trade-off was no maid service, which was fair enough in my opinion. The staff was very nice and tried to solve our parking problems (a non-guest in our space), key issues (kept getting de-programmed) and they missed getting our cribs delivered for our first night though we put the request in with our reservation and confirmed the cribs one week before arrival (we arrived after the office had closed).

Thank you guest for submitting your experience with us to the world! This will help us improve where needed, and also shows where we shine! We are currently in the process of starting parking passes for overnight guests, and any foreign vehicle that does not have a permit will be towed from the premises, this will help alleviate this issue. Hotel keycards being de-magnetized is common in most hotels as them being next to credit cards and cell phones does tend to de-magnetize them. We are working with our key company for a solution to this. I will also make sure that not having your crib request placed in to your room prior to arrival, even after hours, is brought to the attention at our next staff meeting. Although therwe were some minor flaws you experienced, I do appreciate you choosing to stay with us and hope to welcome you on your next trip to Siesta Key!

If you like a beautiul beach - you have found it here at Crescent Beach. This is the third time we have come back to Siesta Key and stayed in Sara Sea Circle. This is our first time at Captiva. The couch was very dated and uncomfortable but had a very functional kitchen, good size bedroom and a smaller bedroom for our kids. We love the small community of resorts here. The pool is always warm and as stated above, there isn't a nicer beach around. There is shuffle board on the grounds as well. There is a grocery store just down the street. Unfortunately, there was not a coffee maker in our room but would walk across the street to get some. There was no hair dryer but they provided one for us. The grounds were very clean and tidy. There was a grounds keeper that worked hard to keep the property this way. The staff was friendly and helpful. Another great stay!

Dr. Gary,

What a difference a year makes! Your crew this year starting with management, Sandy,
Deborah Ann and Sabrina, the housekeeping staff, Debbie (big show), Maria and Denise
are all one big happy family. Their only concern is "what can we do for you to make your
stay more enjoyable". This is our 14th year here and we have already booked for March,
2013. The clean rooms, beautiful beach, along with the above mentioned personnel
makes this a first class resort.
The Tropical Luau was first class as well and most enjoyable.

Room Tip: Depending on how many in your party, there are good rooms for everyone.
