    • Couple

      The location was great and the facilities were well taken care of.

      Air Conditioning Units cycle on and off every three minutes and they are loud. Makes it hard to sleep.

    • Couple

      Room was great, very spacious, beuatiful view of the bay from the patio and the Gulf of Mexico from the kitchen. Great breakfast included, lots of choices, not too far from the village of Captiva. We can't wait to go back!!!

    • Single

      breakfast, restaurant crow's nest, swimimingpool, rooms, location

    • Family with children

      I loved the room, even though we had in issue with a water leeking. The front office was helpful. My family and i had a wonderful time and would recommend it to our friends and hope to visit again.

    • Group of friends

      The beach and the convenience of purchasing the use of the umbrella and chairs was nice. The location was nice, however the room was just okay. Our water view of the Gulf was very good.

      The shower was very difficult to turn on. Even after they checked it out we still had to push , pull, and pray that the water would come out. The new granite vanity was nice but the bathroom was very disappointing. Mold in the grout was a turnoff.

    • Older travelers

      Sanibel, while beautiful, can be a difficult spot to get public beach access. The Tween Waters Inn was right across the street from the beach.......can't beat that on Sanibel!

    • Older travelers

      Hotel staff was so very friendly and helpful. Access to a wonderful beach w cabanas and umbrellas. Good food. It's a large resort but feels very private. It's not 4 or 5 stars but quite comfortable.

    • Family with children

      I have stayed at 'tween waters twice - with 30 years between each stay. I was really relieved & pleased to see that it hasn't changed much at all, which is a good thing. I stayed at this hotel this time as part of a longer holiday elsewhere in florida, & had to be dragged away, screaming & kicking! 'Tween waters is uniquely situated & still has an unrivalled tropical olde worlde ambience whilst adding some new aspects such as a gym, spa and new accommodation. The cute & romantic wooden cottages are still there, along with the original (refurbished) accommodation blocks. My party's ensuite rooms had fridges, kitchenettes & staggering gulf of mexico views, air con, fans, phones & comfortable beds. Our building had a self laundry, ice, vending machine. The friendly crow's nest bar/restaurant holds 'nascrab' crab racing & entertainment evenings, the a la carte restaurant, old captiva house, serves enormous cooked or continental breakfasts too. Both establishments serve really great food with exceptional service. There's a large pool & bar with snacks, 2 hot tubs, tennis court, a marina where you can hire boats, two shops etc. all of the staff were excellent throughout the hotel, nothing was too much trouble, they made everyone feel welcome. I would say that 'tween waters is suitable mainly for adults, & families with older children. It truly is well worth staying there for the relaxation it affords. I recommend it highly, and can only hope it won't be another 30 years before I return there. It's a little bit of paradise on earth.

      The wireless internet is, let's face it, have to sit in reception to get any kind of signal at all. I am considering buying them a new router and taking it there (any excuse for a return visit). However, it is such a lovely place, you sort of forget you ever wanted to be hooked up to the internet in the first place. My advice is, leave the laptop and phone at home.......!

    • Family with children

      Very tastefully decorated & very clean! Loved all the water, the beach, the bay, the pool! The landscaping and flowers were beautiful, the food was excellent! Lovely location!

      We were only able to stay one evening & it was very enjoyable; however, I feel that some of the activities we would have enjoyed were not conveyed to me. I saw on a bulletin board that Yoga on the beach was on Mondays. I then noticed at check-out it was also offered on Wed. & Fri. I left on a Friday & would have really enjoyed that experience. There was also a adventure we would have participated in, but once again I didn't know about it until too late. I suppose I'll just have to plan a return trip!

    • Older travelers

      Location, nice room and balcony ( no ocean view but bay)

      Children very noisy at the pool side and occupying hot tubs

    • Single

      Wide variety of things to do in a beautiful setting with very attentive staff.

      Dining room service was slow. Food quality and presentation was very good.

    • Family with children

      Great location in be"tween waters" and Captiva is a very charming island. I would love to go again! Complimentary breakfast with lots of fresh fruits: strawberries, pineapple, melon, grapes, etc and lots of freshly baked pasteries.

    • Older travelers

      The location was excellent and the facilities were great.

      I did not like having to pay $20 for beach chairs and an umbrella at the beach.

    • Family with children

      The following were great: the proximity to the beach, the pool, the lovely continental breakfasts on the patio with fresh fruit and homemade pastries (kudos to the chef), the sunsets, the view of Pine Island Sound from the room, the tasty Gyro lunch by the pool, and the very helpful front office staff.

      We were there over spring break and some of the kids were a little loud and rambunctious in the pool. It would have been nice if the beach chairs and umbrellas were complementary (we purchased some of our own). The dinners were tasty, but a bit pricey. The lunch and dinners at both restaurants need more vegetarian options.

    • Older travelers

      Perfectly situated be-"tween waters". The Gulf of Mexico (sunset) and Pine Island Sound (sunrise). A short beach walk to local shops and restaurants. Very nice pool area and recreational areas like tennis and exercise room. Also, marina and boat rentals on site. The resort restaurant serves up a delicious breakfast included in room rate or for $5.95 you can add eggs, bacon, etc. I guess I liked the "all inclusiveness" of the resort as well as the cleanliness.

      The front desk staff were not as friendly when we checked in as they were when we checked out. A waitress at the pool bar was rude. The maid didn't understand English, and tried to come in our room when we were still in there. Some of our party were staying in Cottages and had maintenance issues their whole stay (7 days). I loved the resort and I think all these complaints are correctable and hopefully the management will correct them. We do plan on returning next year.
