Benefits of the New Breakfast Policy

breakfast tween waters inn

I hate change, so when I heard that ‘Tween Waters was switching their breakfast policy, like many of you, I started to panic! Would they have my beloved pastries? What about the mornings when I just want something fresh? Was this going to cost me more? I just want my breakfast back!!!

After speaking to Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts CEO Tony Lapi (and maybe taking a chill pill too), I was able to calmly examine the policy a little further, and began to realize this really wasn’t the end of the breakfast world as we know it. In fact, I might actually save some money.

As explained to me, in order to maintain their bountiful buffet, they have to work that into the nightly rates. It’s built in. So removing the free breakfast buffet option, I don’t have to pay that automatically in my nightly rate — so no money lost. In fact, they reduced their rates by 8% across the board (so all cottages and suites too), meaning I’m actually paying less per night in the future.

So now that I have 8% back in my pocket — equating to anywhere from $20-40 per night — can I still spend it on breakfast? Of course! But I also don’t have to. Food and Beverage Director Laurent Bosc says they plan to have quick breakfast options, which will have grab and go items like fruit, cereals, pastries and more, all at reasonable prices, so that I can grab my breakfast, not waste any time getting to the beach, and still have money left over in my pocket each day in savings.

But some days I want a little extra — pancakes, omelets, eggs benedict, oh my! Bosc tells me that that won’t change. I will still be able to order these items from a menu for breakfast, just like I had when the breakfast buffet was in place.

Plus, with newly renovated rooms complete with partial and full kitchens in some rooms, I also have the option to make my own breakfast.

So to all of my ‘Tweenies peeps who, like me, started to fret when they heard about the 2018 policy, don’t panic! It’s designed to save us money, reduce waste and save us precious beach time, while still giving us options — and that’s the truth.

NOTE: The New Breakfast Policy doesn’t begin until 2018, and they’ve been planning this for a while now, which means your rate most likely reflected the 8% change. If you booked your reservation extremely early (around 1 year prior) your initial reservation might not have been adjusted, but has since been refunded the 8% difference. 2017 reservations are not affected by this new policy.

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!
