Wonderful, safe resort for the entire family. We also rented a cabana for our week long stay. It was perfect and right next to the large pool. We had a penthouse suite with an elevator which opened directly to our room. Gated resort with helpful staff. In ever had to worry about my sons if they wanted to run down... More

I have been staying here for 16 years ( since it opened ) and it has been a premium condo resort for years. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is awesome and the security is the best around. It has great tennis courts , exercise room and even an indoor pool for when we get too burnt to be outside.... More

This spa has so much potential. Very under utilized. We got to the spa early and sat out by the small pool. This place could be making so much money if they utilized and staffed the pool / porch area. It would be great to use this area for guest before and after massages. To have a bar under the... More

We stayed in Sy. Lucia, room 1206. It's an end unit so we had amazing views from our balcony! It's decorated beautifully and has all the comforts of home. We will definitely be staying in this unit again. 3 br 3 bath unit and the master closet is the perfect size to put an air mattress in for the kids... More

This was our first trip to Destin and was so impressed with Silver Shells. We stayed in St Marteens. We enjoyed the view of the ocean from the condo. I could have lived on the balcony! Loved the private elevator and the security was top notch. Loved the pool. Conveniently located on the strip.

I travelled here with a group of friends for Spring Break last year. Absolutely loved it! We stayed at St Maarten on the 11th floor, I believe (can't remember quite). I loved how the elevators in the parking garage took you straight up to your room! The layout of the condo was great, and the furnishings were exquisite. Balcony had... More

We love silver shells! Our first visit was May of 2015 as a family group of 12. The second visit was our honeymoon. Some of the condos are dated but that's the only "bad" thing I'd say about this resort. The beach location is amazing, the pool/hot tub area is well kept and very clean. We also made a visit...

Spent a week with the family here. My wife rented 4 suites. The weather was not great , but acceptable. We always go to the spa for a massage when we go here. This was the worse massage we had ever had. in the 3 times we went. Other than that, the kids really enjoyed the pool.

We had the nicest condo in the building but couldn't enjoy it because of the maintenance on the patio. There was furniture in disarray. We had men around sawing and banging on things every day. We reported this to bliss beach rental company, after giving them 2 days, more than enough time, to have it repaired. On our last day,... More
