“disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

I went to Seashell Suites Resort to relax and write. I, and my sister, arrived late Saturday and was shown to the suite. Sunday we were greeted with a backed up sewer that was unpleasant at best. The drainage for our tub was poor. The facility was neat and clean in general. The bugs were horrible. We were told that Skin so Soft by Avon was the best but that the 'family' OFF was also good, on Sunday by staff. We went and got 'family' OFF at the store immediately, it really didn't help much, we looked for the Skin so Soft but it was not available in the stores that we checked. The bugs were so bad it made the stay unenjoyable. I ended up in the emergi-care, after consulting a pharmacist, and the Dr. after giving me an injection and perscription for the reminder of the week recommended I move inland for the remander of my stay in Flordia. I tried to contact the owner and he did not return my call, I did talk to 2 different people who worked there. I was told to send an email to the owner, which I did and explained the situation, and I still have not heard back from him and it has been over a week since sending my email.

This person stayed with us for 10 days, left for another beachfront hotel south of us where they stayed for two or three days, and we never saw them again. When they returned to their home in Western USA, they wrote and demanded their money back for being bitten by sand midges. A failure to comply to their demands would enact negative 'internet reviews'. There is no information of any value or any merit in this posting by a difficult and uncomfortable person. They would not be invited back to our facility. There is no policy or service or standards that require correction or redress on the part of our business.

Words can not say how wonderful our experience was at the Seashell Suites. Not only are the grounds and rooms wonderfully clean and beautiful, but the beach was literally 10 steps from our door. Beautiful water, no one around, and the resort even offered free surf boards, bikes, and toys for beach fun! We absolutely loved sitting by the pool, under the canopies, and on the dunes deck watching sunsets and enjoying the peace and quiet. The staff was very helpful and the owner went above and beyond the call of duty for any requests or special accommodations. We will definitely be returning for our next visit to the Florida coast. Thank you Wendell for everything!

Room Tip: Since it is a small resort, any room is close to the beach and all rooms were remodeled recently.

My family just rented the entire resort for a wedding. This gated small eco friendly resort is without a doubt the finest property on the coast in Florida....or it sure seems that way. It is gated, on a private area of the barrier island, with all great amenities. Our wedding event, although cloudy, was just flawless. The rooms, or suites, are all 2 bedroom with fabulous big screen TV's comfy beds and marble kitchens...just the best. The beachfront has an ocean deck with surfboards and a tiki right on the sanddune overlooking the private beach. Pool, beach chairs, towels, Sauna, BBq's, Big Tiki, breakfast...it has everything, including a great staff of wonderful people and freindly atmosphere. The Best. Thank you to all for a wonderful success.

Room Tip: The Conch is cloest to the beach. The property runs from the ocean to the highway. Look on the web...

I planned a wedding at SeaShell Suites back in April. The bride and groom where from out of town and had faith in me to pick out the location. They were blown away by how beautiful and clean the resort was. They rented out the whole resort for their wedding and guest and had a very relaxing memorable weekend. Wendell is a great host I would recommend any one that just wants a very Romantic, cute, quite, very private wedding to choose SEAShell Suits Resort.

This was paradise! We even saw dolphins playing in the sea from the beach! We only ever saw people from Seashell Suites for miles on the beach! It's relaxed, beautiful and clean. We were made very welcome and the added 'extras' snacks, juices, washers etc made it even better as if the beach front and wildlife wasn't enough!!
Just watch out for the 'no see mes'. These seemed at their worst a breakfast time!
Hey ho it hasn't put us off-looking forward to going back very soon!

We spent 5 days at the Seashell resort with our family. The resort is close to a beautiful and quiet  beach. The room and all the installation are very nice and clean, it's perfect for a family. Our kids loved the place as well. We also met other families that were there on vacation and enjoyed talking to them. Wendell, (the owner) is very nice and he takes good care of his guests.

Absolutely beautiful. I could go on and on about the amenities. There are always complementary snacks and juices on hand for the kids, Wendell brought buckets of iced towels down to the sun deck to help us cool off, there are three washers and driers right there so you can do your laundry. The staff is unbelievable and works very hard to be friendly and helpful. I am hard to please and this place was more than I expected and I appreciated every "extra." The value is unmatched, as well. I'm from Florida and have a hard time finding beachfronts that aren't full of tacky furniture and run-down accommodations. This place is reasonably priced, and beautiful, modern and well-kept. My family has found a new get-away and we couldn't be happier. The property is designed in such a way that you feel like you are in a tropical paradise, not some gross commercial resort. We just recently got back from Hawaii and found Wendell's place to be a refreshing reminder that our own home state has much to offer as well. Thank you, Wendell!
