I just got married in Sarasota and chose the Captiva Beach Resort and their sister hotel Stickney Point as the places for my guests to stay. This was a great decision. The hotels gave me a great price for my guests and were super accommodating to last minute changes--which with my family, there were plenty.
The rooms are nice and spacious and come with fully equipped kitchens. The hotel is also very centrally located--just minutes away from the beach, restaurants and shopping. This made it very easy for my out-of-town family to enjoy themselves. There is private beach access at the Captiva Beach Resort. I was able to go for a morning run the day before my wedding on the beach--Loved it.
Our out-of-town guests who stayed here were able to have a mini-vacation, and as a lot of them were from the mid-west, they LOVED IT.
The best part about the hotel was the service. Everyone in the office was so nice and helped my husband and I coordinate with everyone. Requests were filled quickly and they handed out our welcome bags. We could not have asked for a better place.

We stayed here for 2 nights mid week during off season. We got a great rate of $79 per night for their queen room with kitchenette. We arrived around 9 pm and Ben walked us to our room (23) which was across the street from the office and next to a nice little courtyard. Our room was decent sized with an open plan. They're obviously remodeling as the fridge looked brand new, but the stove was from the 70s. The bathroom is TINY!!! Barely any room to turn around. We settled in for the night with no issues. The bed was a bit hard, but the pillows were comfy.
The next day we got up and made breakfast (only one pan) only to realize there wasn't any hot water to wash dishes with. We boiled water in the tea pot and called Ben at the front desk who told us he'd send maintenance over. After about a half hour, we got tired of waiting, so went out to explore the area. When we returned around 3 pm, we still didn't have any hot water. I called Ben again who stated that he'd be right over ... and he never showed. At 3:30 the maintenance man showed up and explained that he turned the water heater up and to give it about 30 mins. He said that our room was at the end of the line for the water heater and it takes longer to get us hot water. So why put us in this room knowing this, when the resort is nowhere near full. About 20 mins later, a fabulous woman from housekeeping knocked on our door and offered to move us to a different room (31) where there is plenty of hot water. She showed us the room and it was a king bedroom suite with a separate bedroom and plenty of hot water. We moved instantly (this is the only thing that saved this review!) and took nice long hot showers. The bathroom was bigger, but the shower was still about a 2x2 square. Also, the knob is backwards, so while I thought there wasn't any hot water in the shower, I figured out that I had to turn the knob the other way...Haha....joke's on me.
Due to the torrential down pour of rain for the two days we were there, we never did check out the pool or walk to the beach. We would like to try this resort again as it's a great value for the money and excellent location on the beach. Although a drive from the villages where most shops/restaurants are.

The grounds were manicured and an oasis for the weary. The rooms specifically #20 was a disappointment. It was so cramped that it was hard to breathe at times. You can't walk straight without turning sideways.
The walls are thin that the noise of the adjacent rooms can be heard.
Service was friendly although the stay could have been better if they tried to accommodate us for the request to switch rooms.The manager showed me a room that was available but never followed through with me for the transfer.
Parking can be difficult with the limited space you can turn and back up.
There is a washer and dryer with pay $2.00 per load. Self service trash removal.

My family and I are checking out of here tomorrow morning. We stayed 3 days and found the location to be ideal if you're looking to spend your time on the beach as it's less than 100 yards to the water. We have a 12 and 16 year old and both really enjoyed the stay.
I give Captiva a 4/5 because it met all of our needs. The only reason why I didn't give a perfect score is due in part to the room being dated; ie: cabinets, stove, etc. But overall, great location, super nice staff and very relaxing. I woukd definitely stay again.
