Frequently Asked Questions

Make your reservations ASAP

There are a limited number of each accommodation type. If you want beach front or close to the race site you should reserve immediately. Remember, you can cancel 7 days before your reservation date to get a complete refund ( you are only required for a one night room stay payment). If you have ANY questions regarding the accommodation, please contact Lori Mohney @ [email protected]

Will I make the reservations directly with the hotel?

Yes use the code Hobie Worlds and you will receive the discounted rates. You will need a credit card to reserve one night of your stay. This is refundable up to 14 days prior to your first day of arrival with a 100% refund.

If you are making reservations online use the code: to ensure you receive your discounted accommodation.

The table on the second page of this document gives the pricing options for all available rooms.

There is normally a $19/person/night resort fee added to your bills. For our event the resort fee is only per room (1BR $19/2BR $38/3BR $57) You will also receive a room credit for $25/day (1BR-Hotel Room), $50/day (2BR), $75/day (3BR). This may be used for any on site meals, beverages, etc. It will be added to your bill upon check out as a credit based on the number of days you are at the resort.

Can I stay off-site?

You may but it is not the preferred way. Captiva Island is a very small area and very isolated. Most homes close are private and if you do rent one you WILL NOT have access to all of the resort amenities. If you stay off site totally you will be charged a daily resort fee (TBD) to be able to get to the event. If you stay on the mainland in Ft. Myers it is at least a 1 hour drive time to the island and a bridge fee every time you go over it.

ADVICE – STAY on site

You will be hard pressed to find anything more reasonable or convenient. Look into a 2 or 3 bedroom condo and share with friends – this is the most economical and you will have a full kitchen to cook in. Again if you stay off site you will be charged a daily entry fee to the resort.

Closest rooms to the sailing venue are the Harbourside Guestrooms and the 2 Bedroom Marina Villas. These are within walking distance of the sailing venue. The hotel rooms only have a mini-fridge and do not have cooking facilities. There are also Beachside Cottages and Houses of Distinction. This pricing needs to be requested ASAP as they are VERY limited. Please contact Lori Mohney @[email protected]

The 1/2/3 bedroom Condos (Bayside/Beachside/Tennis) are on other parts of the resort. It is a short walk and there is a trolley (lots of room) that loops around the resort continually. They will have an extra trolley in the mornings and afternoons of the event so your wait will not be long. There are stops marked all over the resorts – all convenient to whatever condo you choose to stay in. The walk one way is around 3/4 of a mile from the furthest point away from the beach. There are bikes and golf carts also available for rental for your entire stay (or bring your own bikes). Many local vendors will deliver bikes to your door for your stay for a very reasonable fee. There will be Hobie banquets/parties on both sides of the resort.

Tax rate IS NOT regulated by the hotel – Currently Federal/State/City/Local taxes – 11% will be added to your final bill.

So in summary your room rate is: The amount listed above plus $19/day per bedroom and 11% taxes.

Upon arrival you will be asked for a credit card on file. This is a CASHLESS resort and all items will be placed on your credit card to pay in full upon check-out. If you do not have a credit card or wish to have one used a deposit will need to be made upon check in that if not used will be fully refunded upon check out.

Room Credits must be used for on site food/beverage/etc. NOT for your room rate or applicable fees and taxes.
