As vacationers prepare for summer getaways to Florida, the recent oil spill in the northern Gulf of Mexico has many travelers concerned. The LXR Sanibel Captiva Resort Collection (South Seas Island Resort, Sanibel Inn, Song of the Sea, Seaside Inn, Sanibel Sunset Beach Resort and Sundial Beach & Golf Resort) has implemented a “Clean Beach Guarantee” to provide beachgoers with peace of mind. The Clean Beach Guarantee allows guests whose vacation is disrupted because of direct impacts from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill to receive a complete refund on room, resort fee and taxes. Disruption is defined as beach closure or cleanup due to impacts from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Disruption must require a federal or state agency to actively clean the resort beach or to close the resort beach because of public safety concerns related to the oil spill.

While the oil spill in the northern Gulf of Mexico has not affected any part of the Florida coastline, South Seas Island Resort and The Sanibel Collection properties want travelers to remain confident in making getaway plans. For more information on the Clean Beach Guarantee, or to make a reservation contact the South Seas Island Resort: or (866) 565-5089; The Sanibel Collection: or (877) 597-9696.
