'Tween Waters Inn Review

Besides its great beach-to-bay location, this inn has historic value and in 2011 was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In the 1930s, Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist and conservationist "Ding" Darling, namesake of Sanibel's refuge, stayed in the historic cottages here, which are the most charming of the property's accommodations. Anne Morrow Lindbergh, wife of famed aviator Charles, also stayed in one of the cottages while authoring her book Gifts from the Sea. Today, water-sports enthusiasts especially like the rentals and charters at the marina. Couples and families are at home in the beautiful multibedroom units with kitchen facilities and updated furnishings. On-site dining options include The Old Captiva House, Oasis pool bar, and Crow's Nest lounge. The Spa at 'Tween Waters Inn is full-service and a welcome indulgence.

    Very Relaxing

    My wife and I just returned from a six night stay at 'Tween Waters. We stayed in a cottage with a view of the Gulf. It was off-season (just before Christmas) and quiet. The cottages have recently been renovated and were very nice. Ours included a range, full size fridge, microwave, sink, all plates and utensils. Atmosphere at the inn is very quaint and tropical. Captiva itself is very unspoiled. The beach was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The accomodations include a nice continental breakfast. You can't beat being able to watch the sun set over the Gulf - everyone comes out to watch. The Old Captiva House Restaurant was top notch - expensive, but worth it. Crows Nest Bar had an interesting crowd and live music most nights. All in all, a great experience; we plan to return next year. Also, they are dog friendly.

    'Tween Waters Inn Review

    Great location, beautiful beach. Rooms are very basic (to the point of being shabby). The property is in need of a face-lift. This, together with a very unhelpful staff makes this hotel very bad value for money. The restaurants are decent, with good standards and service. I would not return to this establishment.
