“Memorable 50th Anniversary and Beyond!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Our 50th Anniversary spent at the Pink Shell Resort and Marina was beyond our expectations, from the private Sunset Dinner on the Beach to the efficient and friendly staff, to the beautiful view from our clean, attractive room. They made this very important occasion that much more special. The Pink Shell goes above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome. This was our first visit, and will definitely be in our plans for the future.

Room Tip: We were on the fifth floor of the main building and we were completely satisfied.

This is the perfect resort for families. My family have been staying at pink shell for many years and were never dissapointed. Beautiful. The free American breakfast was very good and the Different pools were a lot of fun. Quality in furniture mattress, linens.

The beach is one of the best I have been, including the ones in the Caribbean.

Room Tip: I like the upper floors and the white sand villas.

This is the second time I had stayed at the Pink Shell, the entire stay was very pleasurable from the check in to check out. The staff are all very professional and willing to go the extra mile to help. The rooms are comfortable and clean, an over all excellent experience.

I'm from Nebraska. Beach trips are mandatory for Nebraskans and we've beached all over the world. On a 10 day road trip from Tampa to Ft Myers, the Pink Shell was the nicest and best value we found. The Pink Shell is now my new Beach getaway location. Short easy flight, great beach, some super restaurants, great location.

Room Tip: The main building is more family oriented. We stayed in the Captiva building. Quiet and more away...

This resort is outstanding! Everything you want or need is located on the property. There is, quite literally, no need to rent a car. Take a cab from the airport, and begin to unwind!!!

The bartenders, Ryan, Lauren, and Angela, are awesome. The wait staff at the restaurants all provide top-notch service - with a smile.

The managers, Mark S. (front desk), and restaurant (Slim), will guarantee your satisfaction.

The pool manager, Ariel, will take of any of your needs.

This was our third visit to the Pink Shell. Every trip has been excellent, but this was the best. We took advantage of the 4th night free offer. As a Florida native I've experienced a lot of beach resorts. The Pink Shell goes above and beyond and really sets itself apart as a cut above. Every single member of the staff that we interacted with was genuinely friendly and helpful. Bill at check in, Bob our porter, and especially Mark the front desk manager excelled at making our stay very special. I love that there aren't a lot of hidden "resort fees" or other surprises. Complementary beach chairs and umbrellas are a classy perk.
We stayed in the White Sands Villa, one bedroom. Everything you could ask for...in room washer/dryer, 2 tvs, dvd player, clean room, full size fridge, stove, microwave, fiestaware, huge bathtub and large shower, clean, beautiful gulf view balcony with lounge chair, free wifi, complimentary breakfast, on site dining, awesome pool, kids activities, marina.....they have it all. The pink shell really has the customer service/satisfaction thing down. Best beach resort in Florida as far as I'm concerned.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor of the White Sands Villa are a little smaller than on other floors. Choose a...
