Absolutely loved this place. A throwback with modern amenities added. We stayed in the modern suite overlooking the Gulf. Beautiful!!!!! Viewed dolphins, manatees, flying fish, egrets, herons,pelicans-a regular airshow!!!!!There are cottages there(built in the 1930s-updated), which we looked at for our next visit. Reminded me when I was a kid vacationing on The Cape!!! Anything you wanted was here on... More

Enjoyed the location and amenities. The staff was quite unfriendly, therefore I feel I need to mention the 3 staff members that were friendly. Jasmine the hostess at old Captiva House, the older woman who worked at the Osprey gift shop, the young light haired girl who worked in the shop by the pool. One day our room was not... More

This is my favorite place to stay when I'm in Sanibel / Captiva. I've only stayed in the newer suites, but hope to stay in the cabins one day. I love the old time charm of the property, and the fact that the gulf of mexico is just outside the door. I recommend this place to everyone I know who... More

I was very impressed with Tween Waters. It's not fancy but it is clean and the compound it easy to get around. Our room had a water view on the inlet side. Breakfast is included which is helpful if you have a large group. We were there off season so it wasn't crowded. The beach is a short walk across... More

My wife and I got married the beginning of October 2015. We stayed at the Tween Waters Inn. The experience was quite delightful. Our room was fantastic overlooking the gulf perfect for watching the sunset!! Overall the whole island was great. But once the sun went down and it started getting a bit later nothing was open. Fortunately the Crows... More

First of all, I'm astounded that Tween sent me an email REQUESTING I leave a review. Especially after what happened. We rented the Petersen Cottage (109) and upon walking in the place smelled musty and gross. I walked back up to check in to confirm they didn't just fumigate the place since we were there with our young children (three... More

My daughter and fiancé got married on the beach at the resort and it was amazing! The event planner, Kelly Palmer was a tremendous help to us with having to make all the arrangements over the phone. Kelly was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, sweet and fun and we feel like we've made a friend for life!... More

I had a facial and it was so relaxing I fell a sleep. She massaged my shoulders, feet and hands. I personally like that so I really enjoyed the experience. I wish she was located closer to my home. The facility was nice. The atmosphere in the rooms was very nice. I would highly recommend this spa and the price... More

This place has it all on their property, and seems to be great for couples, families, or even large groups! They have several restaurants/dining options, kayak/paddleboard rentals, a nice sized pool, hot tub, a spa on site, and a great fitness center! This would be a super fun place to have a family reunion! I'm even thinking about having a... More

If you get the chance when visiting Sanibel/Captiva, go to the crab races held every Monday and Thursday at the Restaurant at Tween Waters Resort. You won't be disappointed. There is a kids show at 6 and the 9 o'clock show is for adults only. They have raised more than $250,000.00 for charity in doing these shows. It's great entertainment... More
