Introducing Our One-of-a-Kind Million Dollar Breakfast Giveback!

Breakfast Policy GivebackEarly in 2017, ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa surveyed more than 30,000 of our past and future guests and asked them one question: How do you like your breakfast served?

For years, ‘Tween Waters Inn has provided continental breakfast buffet as an amenity with your room rate. But we heard that more and more of today’s guests wanted a choice regarding breakfast. So we asked — and the majority of those 30,000 we asked told us they preferred the option of choosing the kind of breakfast they want, rather than paying for something they may not want.

As a result, starting January 3, 2018, breakfast will be 100% your option. Instead of continental breakfast buffet included in your room charge, you can choose a delicious hot breakfast from our Captiva House menu. A light breakfast, like coffee and a bagel. You can choose to eat in your room. Or skip breakfast altogether.

Here’s the best part: In return, we’re reducing our rates 8% across the board — that’s every room, every night — which amounts to what could be $1 million you, our guests, could save next year!

Great savings. And your choice on breakfast. We think that’s a win-win for you. Thank you as always, from all of us at TripAdvisor’s top-rated Captiva Island resort!

jerry‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort will host a benefit for 40-year veteran fishing guide Capt. Jerry Way, on Saturday, September 26, 2009 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Wakefield room.  Admission is $15 and includes a hog roast dinner, cash bar, live music and silent auction.

Recently diagnosed with cancer, Capt. Jerry Way is known as one of the longest working captains on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Moving to Sanibel Island in 1954 he eventually became a captain and fishing guide, working more than 40 years on the island.

“Jerry has been a part of our island family for decades,” says fellow Captain, Lamar Williams, organizer of the event. “When a family member becomes sick, you help them in any way you can.”

Jeff Shuff, General Manager of ‘Tween Waters Inn added, “We are honored to host such a great cause and event. Jerry has been a guide and mentor to so many visitors and islanders – it’s a great opportunity for everyone to give back.”

The silent auction will feature a two-day stay at ‘Tween Waters Inn along with other hotel stays and local participating organizations. All of the proceeds of admission and the silent auction will benefit Jerry Way and his family for medical and living expenses. The hog roast dinner, venue, and portion of the cash bar proceeds are also being donated. For more information and donations, contact Captain Lamar Williams at: 239-340-1506.
