We stayed for a week over spring break in late March. I don't think of this location as an early spring break location due to weather. The condo itself was very nice and tastefully decorated. Beds were comfortable and they had nice towels. Pool/hot tub/kiddy pool were all nice and well maintained. Beautiful ocean view along the entire front side... More

We are preparing to go to Silver Shells for the first time and will update this review after being there. I made a reservation for St. Maarten on Jan. 4th 2014 which was confirmed with a $500.00 deposit. I received a letter in Nov. 2014 that my room had changed completely from what I had picked out. When I contacted... More

The dryer did not work properly and took 3 hours to dry a load of clothes. the advertisement for the unit stated a dvr player in all bedrooms and living room, there wasn't one in... More

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.
