Just got back from 5 nights in St. Maarten, unit 1401. Our unit had a full view of the pool and about 50% view of the beach. The beach was well maintained and I woke up early enough Friday morning to see a John Deere tractor pulling a beach cleaner along our section of the beach. The water was amazingly... More

Great family vacation! Good location - stores and evening dining. Tips - Definitely prebook beach chairs and have reserved seating all week. Booked a 3 bedroom condo - kids had their own space and so did we. Thoroughly enjoyed our spa treatments and gym facilities were fantastic. On my morning walk got to see 6 dolphins having fun in the... More

I visited friends at this resort. The views of the beach are great. It is crowded with umbrellas on the beach and hard to get by them. The pool is very pretty. There is quite a walk from the building to the beach. The swipe cards caused a bit of a problem.

I booked last minute but knew the complex and it's facilities from last years trip. I am so glad I rented from Jim. The unit was beautiful, clean and well equipped. The view was great. You could see the gulf , the strip and the airport landing. No complaints. Why pay more for a St Maarten unit when this condo... More

We stayed in the Silver Shells for almost a week in the end of April. While we were there a storm hit (which is not uncommon for this area) and flooded the parking garages and put the elevator in our building out of service...for the duration of our stay. We had multiple rooms including some on the 12th floor and... More

I have stayed in Silver Shells 2x now with my family. The building, the pool, the Sand Bar, and the Ocean, are first class. It is true that requiring the swipe cards to go to the pool and ocean are cumbersome but oh well. The only problem at this place is a fellow named "Terry" who has recently been promoted... More

My family stayed here in June 2014. We rented a 3BR condo (1401) in the St Maarten building, which is close to the beach and offers nice views of the Gulf of Mexico. First, the good. The property is rather well-maintained and the families staying here were nice and polite, and the beach was family-centric with warm water and beautiful... More

We came for a week in June with 6 families, kids ranging from 7-17. We had never stayed at this property or in Destin, but have rented a house on 30A. We liked being in Destin as opposed to off 30A, as its closer to the things we wanted to do (mini-golf, restaurants, etc), but the beaches are more crowded... More

Second time we stayed here and checked in to find out pool would be closed all week. One of the main reasons we booked this place is for the beautiful pool. No one told us and acted like they did not even care that the pool was shut down. We also received no compensation! Last time we stayed here the... More
