We have stayed at this resort before and found it very nice and centrally located. This unit is furnished very nicely but it seems there is a shortage of cooking items and cleanup items in this unit. With the price they charge, it seems that they could afford more than one soap for a weeks stay for the dishwasher. The... More

This was our first time to Destin. We stayed in the St. Croix unit #803 and it looked just like the pictures on line. Very clean, and the perfect view of the beach. We sat out on the patio and could hear the waves, it was so relaxing. Enjoyed it so much will be back next year.

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

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
