My wife and I stayed in the Post Office Sweet for 5 nights and could not have been happier! The location is perfect (on the island and in the resort). The room was clean and furnished well. Jensens provides chairs, umbrellas, and other assorted toys for the beach. We walked to Starbucks each morning and then over to the Jensens...

We met three other couples in Captiva for one of our friends Anniversary. They have been staying at this resort for 16 years and now I know why. We stayed in the Penthouse and the suite was HUGE. I have no idea why it is max occupancy of 2. We could have fit two more people. There is no pool...

Just went to Captiva Island for the first time and loved staying at Jensens'. As so many said in Trip Advisor, the staff could not be friendlier. We think Jensen's location on Captiva Island is ideal. We've been lucky to take nice trips to many resorts over the years, and debated whether to stay at South Seas or Jensen's but...

We have stayed at almost every place on Captiva over the years and finally got a chance to stay recently at Jensen's. It is by far the best deal on the island. The picture on this site must have been taken from our balcony. We had a great view of the beach and a short walk from our unit. Everyone...

Just back from a first-time week at Jensen's. We stayed in the Post Office Sweet, which we found extremely clean and comfortable. Fully-equipped and immaculate kitchen as part of a Great Room, with screened porch in the back. It's a little strange entering through the bedroom, but we quickly got used to it. Bathroom was basic, but clean and functional....

The location was outstanding. The gulf side of the property sits on a section of beach surrounded by private homes. The beach never had more than ten people at one time. The room was exactly as advertised, small, functional, and on the beach. The staff was very accommodating. The check in and out was the easiest i can remember. The...

We found this on Tripadvisor and with the great review gave it a try and I was better than the reviews. We checked on Tuesday and room was ready about 1:30pm, which was a bonus. We stayed in the Post Office Suite for 5 nights. Its doesn't have a gulf view which I was a little disappointed until we got...

We've vacationed at Jensen's since I was a child and it as always been the best place to stay. Now we've brought the third generation of our family here and it was still a lot of fun. Stayed in the Beach Nest this time and it was beautiful. I loved the screened in deck to have breakfast but the open...

We had a great 4 night stay at the Post Office Sweet, it was lovely to have a kitchen with a large fridge to keep the wine/beer and water cool and to be able to make breakfast to eat on the covered veranda(we could hear the traffic but it didn't bother us at all). The whole house was very clean...
