We just returned from a week at the Shell Island Beach Club, 2 adults and 2 kids. The staff were so friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to do during the week. Bikes were always available. The kids borrowed helmets for the week and we just borrowed the bikes whenever we wanted to go for a ride. Pool is... More

We stayed a week in a two bedroom/ two bath apartment that was clean, spacious and had a great beachy feel. The resort offered a huge pool, hot tub, tennis, beach access and free bikes that we used daily to check out the island (since traffic could be bad in some areas this was a great alternative). The beach was... More

Go here every year. It is a time when we can just relax. The wooden walkway to the beach makes for easy access to a fairly quiet piece of beach in front of the resort. Beach views are available from every unit. The pool is usually busy with a higher noise level, though that depends on the number of children... More

What a find! My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend. Our son and grandson joined us for Saturday and Sunday. We stayed in this wonderful 2 bedroom condo. Our room was on the third floor. No elevator but the hike up and down the stairs was worth it. The view from our room was great. We not... More

Excellent access to the pool and Gulf. Walking distance to restaurants and small shops. Quiet, friendly people. Close to the lighthouse. Good fishing area. I've lived in Florida most of my life and would love to spend the rest of it here!!

We have come here for four years. We used a friends timeshare and ended up buying our own unit. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our unit is always clean and well equipped. It is down at the end by the lighthouse with less traffic. The Lighthouse restaurant is walking distance for breakfast. All units have a view of the... More

What a beautiful property and great operation. The staff at check-in were very friendly and get your vacation off to a great start. The unit is clean, spacious and very well appointed. Nice little porch too with plenty of room for two for dinner. The landscaping is native to the island and interesting to look and learn about on the... More

The excellence starts when you check in. We were greeted like family (maybe even better than that) and were given a briefing on the resort. Our room is wonderful! We are on the upper floor looking over the dunes to the beach. We can see great sunrises and we hear the surf from our room. Our room was very well... More

My family vacationed here a few weeks ago and had a great time. Located at the eastern end of Sanibel Island near the lighthouse, the Shell Island Beach Club is a great choice if you're looking to enjoy quality time on a quiet beach with fantastic shelling, a relaxing time at the pool or hot tub or even a game...
