South Seas made by wedding weekend absolutely wonderful! I was very lucky to have Lexie as my coordinator. She was so wonderful, great to work with, flexible, professional, and EXCELLENT at what she does! We had both our rehearsal and reception out at the resort and Lexie made sure everything was perfect! She had great ideas, she was organized, always responded to emails and calls promptly, and most importantly she made our wedding PERFECT. I could not ask for a better experience. I would recommend south seas and Lexie to everyone! Or weekend was hectic with a lot of rain, but Lexie had a back up plan to everything. Everything was perfect from the venue, food, dj. We are over 3 weeks out from our wedding and are STILL getting calls and text about what a wonderful venue and how DELICIOUS the food was!! thank you to south seas and to Lexie for making our wedding everything and more!

My husband and I just had our wedding at South Seas and we could not have imagined anything more perfect. While the scenery speaks for itself, the staff, the planners, and the catering were all fantastic to work with and made the whole process enjoyable. Our coordinator Lexie was with us throughout the entire process and answered every question we had. She guided us through the tough decisions based on her experience and led to a perfect wedding ceremony and reception. The options they offer including golf carts, sky lanterns, corn hole tournaments, alternative venue sites due to weather, and stringer lighting options are just a few of the many reasons that make this an ideal place to get married. We 100% recommend having your wedding here!! We strongly recommend taking advantage of the preferred vendor list too!

Our wedding 10/31/13 at South Seas was perfection. Our coordinator Tammy DaCosta went above and beyond to make sure everything went as planned and many people said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. The food was beyond incredible and the fact that we got to use 4 different venues for our events was great. The grounds at South Seas are beautiful and the staff was great to work with, the whole experience was more than I could have asked for.

My groom and I have always had a special love of Sanibel and Captiva. Living in Naples we thought it would be fun to have a “Destination” wedding but still make it easy to get to. We could not have picked a better venue than South Seas Island Resort. My initial phone call to the Wedding and Events Department was an eye opener. We did not have a big budget and when I heard what the site fee for a Saturday night wedding was (not to mention the minimum food and beverage you needed to spend) I thought our dreams were dashed…

Until the South Seas Representative said those magical little words “Have you ever thought of a Sunday brunch reception?” The more we heard about it, the more we liked it. It was within our budget and with the money we saved we threw a “Welcome Dinner” on Saturday night for all our guests at the amazing Overlook Bar at the Pointe. It was fantastic! We had so much fun designing our own menu and when we had our “Tasting” a few months before the wedding, I thought I had died and gone to food heaven. The cuisine was delicious and beautifully presented. And at our wedding day Brunch, it wowed all our guests!

Special thanks to Melissa in the Rooms Division, Deneb at the Front Desk, Debbie at the Main Pool entrance, Marc at the bar (delicious rum runners!), Christie (who worked at both our events) and Lexi and Rhonda in the Wedding/Events Dept. who made sure everything ran smoothly.

I highly recommend South Seas Island Resort. Our friends and family absolutely loved the resort and we were able to make a long, relaxing weekend of the wedding. As a bride, it was just the perfect place to make our wedding dreams become a reality!

When I decided to have my wedding on Sanibel/Captiva Island, I looked into three venues. When I came to South Seas, I knew in a second that this was where I was going to get married. I am so glad I did!! My destination wedding weekend was absolutely perfect and not one detail went wrong (granted I had great weather!). I had my rehearsal dinner at the beach luau spot, and on Saturday had my ceremony out at Sunset Cove grass lawn overlooking the ocean, and my reception on Kings Crown. Every detail of my wedding was beautiful and the staff of South Seas was so wonderful to work with. We had 160 out-of-state guests and three international guests who are all still calling and e-mailing me about how great the venue was for my wedding. Everyone was able to make a vacation out of it and everyone thought South Seas was beyond beautiful and said it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever attended. The food was excellent, the bar tenders were great, and all the music and entertainment that went through South Seas was top notch. Thank you, South Seas, for exceeding my top expectations for my wedding!!!

I got married at South Seas Resort three weeks ago and had an incredible experience. We wanted a casual, but beautiful place where our guests could enjoy the Florida landscape, but also have a formal wedding experience. I thought it would be difficult to pull off a black tie wedding near the beach, but South Seas was the perfect place to do it. Because we had a large wedding of approx 300 guests, we set up a tent on the West Lawn just steps from the beach. South Seas was incredibly accommodating and gave us ample time to set up and prepare for the big day. The result was gorgeous. To top it off, the food and service at the reception was exceptional and we still receive raves about the dinner and general ambience of the whole night. Our rehearsal dinner the night before was in Kings Crown/Kings Crown Lawn where beautiful twinkle lights made the night so scenic. Brunch was in the same place -- and because the weather was so beautiful all weekend -- was a fantastic way to end the celebration.

All in all, I couldn't recommend South Seas more. Our guests felt at home with all the different options the hotel has for accommodations – big families stayed in houses and villas, groups of friends chose between 1-3 bedroom hotel suites, etc. Everyone at the resort was super friendly and incredibly professional. The wedding team at South Seas worked with us and our party planner for nearly 15 months and made sure that every detail was addressed. I do not have enough good things to say about the resort. We had an incredibly unique wedding that I genuinely believe could not have been done anywhere else. I cannot wait to see the pictures and wouldn't change a thing about our big day. Thank you South Seas!

The staff at South Seas was professional, responded in a timely manner, and was fun. They helped make my wedding day one that I will never forget. I greatly appreciated how quickly John responded to my emails, how me and my guests were treated with respect and the entire staff went out of their way to make sure that everything was perfect. Every event from the rehearsal dinner to the wedding to the farewell brunch was well thought out, every detail was taken care of and it was absolutely amazing! I am so happy that I chose to have my wedding at South Seas.
