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

I couldn't have imagined a better place for our first family vacation. Our condo was just as nice as pictures had represented.The property was clean and beautiful. The pool & beach was amazing and the beach service was fantastic! The resort seemed to be pretty centrally located to other activities on days we needed a break from the sun.Everything was... More

Great amenities, the beach is beautiful, clean, ultra white, like sugar, sands. The building is amaizing, clean, great pools, great gym, great views and just a few steps from the beach. Great vacations. Highly recommended

Great view with pool overlooking ocean. We picked this resort for the large pool. Showed up at 11, and was not made aware the pool would be closed all week. There were no signs, nobody at the check in said anything. They claimed they sent an email that neither of our parties received on Friday. We requested they resend the... More

We stayed the second week of June. Unit was nice, but main pool was being repaired during our stay. Not a good thing during June in Florida! We didn't know this ahead of time and weren't given alternative property options. Obviously no one would pay these high rental rates for a property without a pool! management said you could drive...

Very nice condo, would definitely stay again. As most buildings in Destin not directly on the beach but the St Maarten building is close to pool and ocean - We could see both from our huge balcony. Both bedrooms and living rooms opened onto Balcony. At night if we opened the sliding glass doors you could hear the waves and... More
