We had a nice room had separate king bedroom, two bathrooms and a common room that was kitchenette, living and dining area. All you needed. We stopped at the grocery store and hardly ever left the place. They have a nice restaurant and pool area with bar service too.

We stayed here for a friend's wedding in March and absolutely loved it. Despite the cold, rainy weather outside, the rooms were clean and warm. The staff were also very friendly and accommodating. We would consider staying here again if we were to travel back to the area.

Our visit to Shell Island was one we will never forget. The whole staff, especially Hollie and Dang, in the restaurant, were wonderful! They were so friendly and attentive to our requests! It was our first trip away together and they made it so much more special. We definitely plan to go back and hope they are working when we... More

We are so pleased with our stay at shell island resort. The moment we walked into the lobby we were welcomed wholeheartedly by Henry, the front desk personality! Then we were greeted by Rich, who was so friendly too. Henry made sure we received whatever we needed, I felt very pampered! That extended to the restaurant, where our wonderful breakfast... More

The entire staff was friendly and helpful from the time we arrived. A special thanks to Sasha, James, Dang and George for helping us pull off a beautiful ceremony and reception in the midst of Tropical Storm Ana. They were very patient, understanding and sympathetic with the bride- who was understandably disappointed in the weather. The table settings were lovely... More

Trying to plan a little beach getaway with my husband, we found this resort. It was a little dated but the views and location were a wonderful surprise. It is located at the north end of Wrightsville Beach. Very quite and peaceful if you are looking to relax. Very friendly staff. Because we enjoyed the area and resort, we are... More

I spent 3 nights, May 7-10 at the property. I loved the location (at the end of the beach with great views of everything). The condos are individually owned and mine was not too updated. More upsetting was how dirty the floors were and all the hair behind the doors in the bathrooms (when you shut the door, it went... More

My family and I enjoyed a delicious lunch Saturday 9 May 2015. The ocean view was very enjoyable as the wind and surf was rising from tropical storm Ana. Ms. Hollie was friendly, prompt with each course of our meal. Each course. Yes! Appetizers: Shell island Carb dip and fried oysters were a warm and delicious start. The crab chowder... More

Attended a wedding at Shell Island on Saturday May 2nd. Was very impressed with venue and excellent staff. The banquet room overlooked the ocean and provided a great reception atmosphere for a beach wedding. Asst. General Manager George, James, "Georgie" and the bartender Dang did a great job making sure everything ran smoothly and stayed late to help my wife... More
