Stayed for spring break and loved the private elevator.... Will stay again! Loved the safeness of the condo by having to use your key to get anywhere and of course the sauna at the spa was lovely and the pool was wonderful and very we'll heated. I recommend staying here!

We rented with another family last July. The condo is perfectly located on a nice stretch of beach. We were in the St.maarten building and rented thru VRBO. The only issue is the rental of chairs to get a spot on the beach. It was impossible to bring your own chairs without getting close to the water and we were... More

We had St. Maarten PH8 booked through Compass Resorts for 6 days and 5 nights and cried as we left. Very clean and comfortable. The view was amazing. The PH was clean and private. The staff was amazing. The property was well maintained. The security guards were kind as we entered and left. Definatley will return to this property!

We have been coming to Destin for many years. We have never stayed at Silver Shells, but always admired the grounds and beach at this resort. We booked a unit in St. Maarten 1104, and will have to say this was the most disappointing and filthy place we have ever rented. The unit is outdated with old worn leather sofa,... More

Our family with four children, ages 10-2, rented a three bedroom end unit condo in the St. Lucia building from a VRBO owner. St. Lucia is closer to the road and at a distance from the beach and the pools - it takes a few minutes to walk to the pool area. I would have preferred to stay in a... More

Nice views, decent location to "things to do" around area. Beach was pretty and quite large. Pool was also large and nice, but without wait service. The outside bar is 40-60 yards from pool and often has lines. There are some silly things like really stinky garbage chutes, but overall it's cool place. I thought the PH was gorgeous and... More

Our family of four stayed in a 2 bed/2bath unit for a long Labor Day weekend. It was fantastic! The condo was clean and spacious. The view from the balcony was breathtaking...from the 10th floor we looked down onto the pool and the white sand beach beyond. The grounds were very well maintained and the pool was sparkling clean.

This place is so beautiful! Balcony view of the Gulf is amazing and so many ways to walk around the complex to the best white sand beaches. You're close to all the activities but feel like you are in your own piece of paradise. This is a great place to come to and get away from the 'normal life' to... More

In June 2013, we stayed in Destin for our wedding week. Although we didn't stay at Silver Shells, a local resident recommended The Spa as the best place to get a massage.

Our recent stay at Silver Shells was awesome. The condo was spacious, very well kept, and had an awesome pool. The location on Destin beach was ideal. My only negative would be the cost of beach chair rentals was outrageous. $250 per week for 2 chairs and an umbrella. The average price up and down the beach was $125.
