“Best price around”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

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.

Well, after traveling 20 hrs on a chance to visit Siesta Keys on Florida's west coast for the first time, I say we found a Treasure for keeps in staying at Captiva Beach Resort. The beach was as peaceful as one can hope for, the Management & staff at this resort was nothing less than "First Class". It was a feeling that you are among good people who appreciated you wanting to stay and enjoy their facility and the town around them. Sandy does an excellent job in management which compliments the staff she oversees. From the young lady with the warm smile who greeted us when we arrived, to Deborah Ann who was very professional & helpful with all the information around town. We met "The Big Show" who was very accommodating with our room service and town life inquiries. Great teamwork. Owner is fortunate with this group of Ladies! The one and only dislike with our room (but I hear there is reno going on) the vanity in the bathroom - too tight of a space. Maybe put corner unit. Other than that, we will see you in May of 2013 as soon as you allow the reservations to open. Thanks for a good memory with more to come. God Bless, Terry B.

Siesta Key beach is very lovely - there are only a few hotels here - most properties are residential. Staff here is very nice but at 215 per night - its not very impressive - it is clean and the hotel staff is very good - it is under new owrnership so those comments about the owner Robert no longer apply.

Room Tip: Probably best to rent a condo if you come to Siesta Key - Hotel selection is poor and overpriced

We (3 couples) came to Captiva on Siesta Key after hearing how beautiful and friendly this area was. It exceeded our expectations! The staff at Captiva were very friendly and made us feel like we were visiting friends (especially 'Big Show'). The Captiva staff/owners had a Luau-style party on Saturday, complete with a roast pig! They said they have such events so guests will feel like family, which we did. We had 2 rooms, the bathroom in the one with two beds was a tight squeeze. Hear they are remodeling to improve that soon. Food/entertainment in the area was very good. Beach was as beautiful as all say.

Room Tip: Rooms comfortable, face the courtyard. Plan to walk down path about 100 yds to the beach.
