Stayed at the Sea Shell mid July. It was first time back to Beach Haven in over 35 years and I really had no idea to expect post-superstorm Sandy. But, the Sea Shell and almost all of Beach Haven seemed to have rebuilt quite well. While the entire hotel was renovated, their are some signs of the damage such as... More

I didn't stay at the hotel, only visited the tikki bar for lunch, but from what I could see, and the way it was packed on a Wednesday afternoon, this place was definitely a hot spot. Located in Beach Haven, which has the most to do on LBI, I felt like I was on a tropical vacation. Huge tikki bar... More

You know you've run into people like this before..the staffer who employs their own opinion while enforcing what they claim is the policy of the establishment. It happens all the time at the Sea Shell, from the bar to the front desk, the staff seems so fed up with summer vacationers (by late July...) they snap and begin to enforce... More

The Seashell or "the shell" as the locals call it is a great place for a weekend getaway with your friends. The food was fabulous, beach was nice, pool had a great view of the band that comes and plays outside. The night club at night was so much fun! The only downside would be the skylight in the sitting... More

I went here with my family and we all absolutely love this place! I had doubt about staying here, but the pictures don't do it any justice. Aside from being beautiful & clean, the rooms have a small fridge and microwave! Which make traveling with a toddler so much easier. The staff is awesome! My 2 y.o. made friends with... More

Really enjoyed our stay in LBI this summer. The Seashell has the nicest staff. They are so helpful and easy breezy to work with. The grounds are beautiful but not a ton of rules to tie you down. Great location and the food is delicious. Love the entertainment and happy hour.

There are definite pluses to this property--beachfront, nice outside dining area, clean pool, easy beach access (not a tall dune, and nice shower as you come off), and fantastic bathrooms. But, I would hesitate to stay again because the beds are so uncomfortable. And it isn't just me, my traveling companion in a separate room, also could not get a... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Sea Shell. I wanted to take a moment to respond to your suggestions. Regarding the beds, we have just renovated the wing that you stayed in, the beds are all brand new Sealy Posturepedics. We have heard nothing but rave reviews on the beds. I even purchased one for my house... More

The Sea Shell Resort and Beach Club keeps getting better and better every year! I have been coming to LBI my whole life and always enjoyed the great entertainment and nightlife the Shell offers, but lately their food has been outstanding too! Yesterday, I had a new addition to the menu, the Turkey Burger. Not only was it one of... More

The hotel has a great location on the island. The pool is on the smaller side, but was perfect for my children ages 8 and 13. The beach is definately the highlight of this hotel. The Island decor with palm trees and Tiki Bar make you feel like you're vacationing outside of the US. The rooms were comfortable and parking... More

I read a review of "The Shell", as patrons will refer to this resort after only one visit, relating to a customer's experience last Sunday, July 5th, as well as the response posted by its management, which has compelled me to add my observations as I, too, was there last Sunday. It would be difficult for me to estimate the... More
