We stayed for 7 days in St Croix 506. We enjoyed out condo but would stay at on of the more beach front locations next time. Our condo was clean and had mostly what we needed. The bathroom toilets seemed to never stop running after you flushed it. We used Compass Resorts for our stay and they did a good... More

We have been coming to this resort on and off for the past 20 years, and it gets better and better each time. St Maarten is our favorite tower. The entire property is immaculate, the pool is gorgeous and the beach service is fabulous. The staff is so accommodating and the amenities on the property (spa, gym, Ruth's Chris steakhouse)...

Was our hotel room nice? Sure. And was conveniently located. A/C worked, fridge worked, and stove worked. The washing machine, however, squeaked to high heavens the entire running time so that wasn't desirable. Beds were comfy and the sofa and TV were nice. Then there is management and accounting... In my experience, they are completely incompetent. With the initial booking... More

We stayed at Silver Shells Beach Resort in unit 1104 in the St Maarten building for a family trip before my son left for college. This building is the closest to the beach of the five buildings in the resort and is very well maintained. The condo is beautiful and the view is breathtaking!!! The unit has recently been renovated... More

Our family of 6 adults and a toddler found this to be a perfect unit! Beautifully decorated with quality kitchenware and oh so comfortable! The mattresses are amazing! The patio has lots of seating to enjoy the beautiful ocean view. We appreciated the start up kit of paper towels, tp, kitchen and laundry soap and trash bags! Plus toiletry bags... More

We made reservations at Silver Shells in the St. Maarten bldg. with Visionary and were confirmed for 606 in that bldg., the only problem was Visionary did not have that unit to rent. We made our reservation in Jan. 2014 for Feb. 2015 and were not notified until Nov. 2014 that it was not available, by then there was not... More

Booked a last-minute rental for fall break last October in the St. Croix building through an owner on VRBO. Excellent location. Amenities are tops and hard to find anything else that comes close. The beach is great. Loved having community gas grills to enjoy. Lots of families. The resort is very well maintained and clean.

We stayed on the 14th floor of the St. Croix and the view was fantastic! The sand on the beach is so soft and powdery. The condo was very clean and updated. We could walk to the Back Porch restaurant for dinner. The bar on the beach was very convenient and the personnel were all courteous and friendly. I enjoyed... More

The condo (unit C1205) was very nice with a nice view of the pool and ocean. The sliding closet door was damaged and was laying on the floor when we arrived, but that was not much of a problem The quality of the resort has declined since our last stay several years ago. 1.Beach rules did not appear to be...
