Overall I do not recommend this hotel. You have to walk more than a football field + to get to the ocean, there are too many rules from the management, the size of the unit is adequate but absolutely no decor. The manager Ken gives you a not so friendly speech when you check in. The only good thing is the view from the apt.

First, let me state that we advertise that we have one of the largest beaches in Florida. Unfortunately you didn't read that information when booking the apartment. Secondly, I understand that people are very excited to get to the beach and enjoy the area. We are NOT a Hotel, we are fully furnished Rental Apartments. Because we supply many free extras, we have to advise you the responsibilities in using them.

We would have gladly refunded you any funds paid if you were so unhappy.

If you stay here bring your own toilet paper. They give you one roll and you have to the office to get more. In addition, the manager/owner watches everyone constantly. He made us and our children very uncomfortable. The management is very rude. Make sure you get everything in writing as they are likely to change the check out policy without notice. I must admit the beach is very nice. The hotel itself is outdated and the manager needs an attitude adjustment.

Located right on the beach but away from the street noise. This was not just a room, but an entire apartment complete with living, dining and bedroom and full kitchen. Had a view of the beach from our private screened in patio. Free convenient parking. Free wifi. Even free beach towels! This place was immaculate (and I am a fussy housekeeper). Only negative was the early checkout time of 10 AM that ruled out a quick swim and beach stroll on our last day. There was a mix-up on our room number and rate, but it was very quickly and courteously resolved. We will never stay anywhere else when visiting this beach.

Room Tip: Worth the few extra $$ to stay on upper floors for the view. Side facing rooms are larger than direct facing.

We were pleasantly surprised at this place. It was clean,spacious and in quiet location. We had a room (more like apartment) with a nice patio overlooking the beach and sunsets. Upon arrival was given a lot of info and great beach towels. They have changed internet service to hard wire because of problems with wireless service. We had no problems with service while there. If beach isn't enough for you there are large tv's with Direct TV and more channels than you could ever watch. The kitchen was well equiped for basic cooking. Brand new appliances. The only thing I needed was paper towels. We went there to relax and that is just what we were able to do. Beach was lovely and dog friendly as we took our Springer with us. Nice restaurants near by or a Publix, we used both. Pool area was very nice and lots of parking. Staff friendly and always seemed to be working on something to keep place neat. There are grills for outdoor cooking and a laundry room if you are staying a while. The bed in our room was a queen and we are used to a king but while a little smaller was still comfortable. There were plenty of towels both in bath and kitchen. We are pretty self-sufficient and didn't mind not having maid service so that was not issue.

They find any reason to charge you. It's $10 per car, $10 per person (extra)....but then you have to clean your own dishes, take out the trash and provide your own toilet paper! I felt like asking if they wanted fries with that! Much better places to stay where you can be on VACATION and not cleaning up every time you turn around. If I added up what I spent to have visitors and parking spaces for them, I could have stayed at Pink Shell!

As a business, we recommend constructive criticism. Unfortunately, when reservations are made, the information being provided on the reservation websites and other advertizing is not read by those making the reservation. In any publication that you find us in, it states all of our requirements. We are not a hotel or motel. We are fully furnished rental apartments.

In regards to the parking cost, our Resort is for paying guest. We allow at no charge for parking for the paying guest and one visitor vehicle.

In regards to the extra person cost, we have one and two bedroom apartments. Our one bedroom apartments have and occupancy of two people and our two bedrooms have an occupancy of 4 people. Each person over the age of 5 years old in addition to the occupancy is $10.00 per person per night.

In regards to expendables, we provide at no cost toilet paper, trash bags, bar soap, coffee filters, and dish soap. At check-out, we do require that your trash is removed from your apartment and that your dishes are clean and put away.
