“Birthday Celebration Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

There were no hidden surprises. Everything was as described online and matched the pictures online. The staff was friendly, knowledgable about the area and attractions. The rooms were clean, beautiful and spacious. If you are looking for a great family friendly resort, or a romantic couples getaway. Pinkshell is the place. I would absolutely come here again.

We have been going to Pink Shell for many years. I went as a child and my wife and kids love this place as I do. Excellent Staff and Friendly Casual Environment. Nice clean room. We will be back over the Summer!

Room Tip: We spend most of our time at the Beach and Pool. The Room was comfortable and Clean. It is no Ritz C...

jOverall wonderful experience. one can tell that they put a great deal of emphasis on getting it right. Super friendly staff. The breakfast buffet is not to be missed. All rooms face the ocean a huge plus.No garden views.

Room Tip: All rooms have the same view. The beach. Just a matter of what size you need.

the beach was incredible, esp before sunset when the tide goes out. we were very happy that we were a short drive from Sanibel/Captiva. the one thing I would have liked is music outside at the bar area. there was a live band on Saturday for a short time, but otherwise no music


Room Tip: the beds and pillows were the most comfortable of any hotel I've stayed at!

We came in on an early a.m. flight and after speaking to the front desk and pressing the issue a bit, they agreed to have our suite cleaned and ready for when we arrived instead of having to wait until a 3pm check-in.

After checking in and hearing that it we were celebrating a birthday, the front desk sent up a large platter of cheeses/crackers and fruit. The accommodations were very nice, though the bedroom was a bit tight and the mattress has seen better days. The queen pull-out sofa was very comfortable to sleep on.

We had a full kitchen, two lanais - one facing the Bay and the other facing the Ocean. The Bay-side lanai had a hot tub and the bathroom is large sporting a walk-in shower for two. Everything was clean, we had no trouble obtaining extra supplies; the beach is beautiful and not crowded at all. The hotel provided lounge chairs, towels and umbrella and we were all set for swimming. There are many water sports available as well as boat tours and other excursions. There is a large pool for children/adults located by restrooms, game room, and food/bar. They also have a fitness room. Laundry room on each floor.

If you are concerned about noise, don't be. Despite the fact that the hotel was full and there were many families with children there, our floor was very quiet and apparently very well sound-proofed.

The breakfast buffet is exceptionally good and if you are there during the week, make sure to try an omelet. The chef on that station makes superb creations to order.The lunch/dinner menu is typical fare, with a few excellent specials every day for dinner.

The hotel personnel were very friendly and our 5 day stay was a complete fun-fest. Well done Pink Shell.

Room Tip: For couples, I would suggest getting a room on the top floor.

If you want a beautiful beach that isn't too crowded, this is a nice location. The hotel seems average at best, but we stayed in the condo style apartments associated with Pink Shell, which were much older and in worse condition. The room was over $300 per night and had things missing, broken, and old. Electrical outlets didn't work, light bulbs not working, portions of kitchen and bedroom missing, technology very outdated, etc. To make matters worse, the room service often didn't show up until later in the day (sometimes at 4 pm when I called them to find out when they were coming) and then failed to deliver the most basic items, like towels. Next time, we will focus on Clearwater Beach, it seems more to our liking.

Although, this is a beautiful resort when booking this trip I was provided with misleading information. I am here for a wedding and was given a group rate. When booking the trip I was told that we had two breakfast's buffet meals provided daily. When I called again this past week to confirm I was again told we had breakfast included with our stay. When I checked in yesterday I was told we did not have breakfast included. I questioned this and was told that since we had the group rate breakfast was not included. It's a bit discouraging when booking this trip and trying to budget for my travels and then receiving this news after the fact.

Room Tip: In our room we continually hear running water. Not sure what or where it is coming from

It is our intention to provide our guests with the most accurate information to ensure an enjoyable stay. Like many resorts, we offer our contracted groups a discounted room rate. If we included the breakfast buffet, the group rate would be higher. We want to offer our groups the lowest rate possible. This is explained in detail to the group contact prior to signing a contract. We apologize for the misunderstanding you encountered and we are taking action to prevent this from happening again. We do hope you found the rest of your stay and experience within our resort a positive and memorable one.
