The resort needs to make two significant changes and all would have been perfect.

  • 4 of 5

The condo and resort was wonderful. The only drawback and negative about our stay was the lack of beach space for people who did not have chair/umbrella rentals. The rentals should not have covered the entire beach property, so as to make renters like us to be forced to take our things either WAY back off the beach, or off the Silver Shells property. It was July 4th week and still very few chair/ umbrellas were rented. The resort needs to decrease the number of chair/umbrellas so that renters who choose not to spend that kind of money on rentals will have space near the beach to put their chairs, tents or otherwise.

The only other negative was that we were not allowed to drive our 4 by 8 uhaul into the garage only to unload our things. We didn't care to leave it in property since we were returning it anyway, until the end of our stay. There was a storm the day we left, which made loading the uhaul off property very difficult. The condo itself, and the resort as well as management was great, but those two issues were significant. Bekah was a joy to deal with also.

girls trip

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and beautiful. I was there with 3 girlfriends. The 3rd bedroom the bunk beds had been taken apart. the room would be ok for children but not very pleasant for 2 adult women to stay in. nowhere to put clothes and the mattress were not comfortable. Everything else about the condo was wonderful.

The pools and beach are beautiful as well as the king suite area. It is very private and like its only little area in the condo. I would definitely book again. Bekah was wonderful to work with.

My family and friends consisting of six have just finished a wonderful vacation in Destin. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unit at St. Lucia. We were there for five nights and found everything to be comfortable and well supplied with everything we needed. We have stayed at Silver Shells Resort many times - some at St.Lucia, St. Maarten and St. Croix and we found this unit to meet or exceed our expectations. I really enjoyed this end unit where we had a great view of the Gulf as well as the city and would most definitely stay here again! The manager, Brian Bardisa, was very courteous and helpful!

Not Silver Shells Quality

  • 2 of 5

We stay at this resort no less than four times a year in the Spring and Summer Months, with that being said my negative comments are based soley on the unit and not the Complex as a whole. The complex has once again proved to be a top notch vacation destination and I have already begun booking for next months visit at this same resort.

The unit at hand is absolutely the worst I have ever seen at this property, the furniture is dated and cheap even for Condo furniture. The Bed in the Second bedroom was broken and the bunk beds are now beat up separate units that need to go in the Dumpster! The overall condition of this unit is sub par, from the walls being damaged in multiple places to the table that seats (4) people in a 3 bedroom Condo! We to were promised (2) Chairs and A umbrella at the beach in our rental only to find out that they are not included (Property Mgr did give us $150.00 in cash), the chairs and umbrella cost us over $60.00 per day. We also needed Wrist Bands for the pool area per security and as of today (2 days later) I still have not been provided those bands by the Property Mgr, (Security has been very understanding and not harassed us). Also this unit is one of the few that we have stayed at that does not have a keypad for entry into the room, they have cards to swipe and one of the three provided does not work!!! I would not be able to recommended this unit to any one, look for a unit In St Croix or St Marten that faces the beach and not the busy Road and parking lots next door! Also the Appliances are very old, the dryer is rusted inside and the blender is INOP! Don't let this scare you about this wonderful resort! It is a awesome place to stay and enjoy the beautiful Beach's of Destin!!!

Adequate accomodations

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in much nicer condos (furniture and kitchens, bedrooms) than this. This had sand everywhere. The throw rugs were filthy, with dirty spots and filled with sand. The bedspreads were the same, spotted with stains The property manager met us with the keys, told us that he'd be back to replace a broker patio chair, and never returned. The couch looks great in this picture, but it was also very dirty, and was super-uncomfortable (cushions sank when you sat). There were no kitchen towels or dish clothes, coffee maker was a joke. The base boards were dirty and dusty - we'd met the manager at 3:00 in the afternoon, and he told us they'd been there since 6:00 am cleaning. Very disappointed for being the most we've paid, and had accomodations that were much closer to the beach. (The manager of the building, however, Arne, was terrific and helpful.)

Owner's Response: This is a clear case of guest spending more then they wanted and after checking in, trying to get a discount right off the bat. A case of "if we complain enough, we can get something back". Unfortunately this happens all too much to homeowners in the area. All our guest have my personal cell number, and can call at anytime if they had problems. The guest said the condo was dirty...we had the cleaners come back out same day. A patio chair was broke, we went out next day and bought two new ones. I am very dissapponited that a guest would leave a comment like this, when we have this condo booked everyday of the summer and more then half our guest are repeated guest that come back year after year.

Very Noisy Location

  • 2 of 5

Although this property unit has a side gulfront view from a small window in the master bedroom, the main living areas and two other bedrooms are directly on the roadway (98)which makes the property extremely noisy, loud, and very unpleasant. The roadway noise was very loud with trucks and bad mufflers on 98, and a bar and grill nightclub across the roadway played loud music on both Fri and Sat nights into the early morning hours (2:30AM was when we finally dozed off on Sat nite and they were still playing loud rap music!) Further, although the property manager indicated that two chairs and an umbrella were part of the rental agreement, he twisted that around and told us that we could hike down the beach and get chairs at the "sister resort." That also was not true. In fact, the security guard at the "sister resort" would not let us enter even the poolside gate and told us that our property manager (DM) was not well liked at this resort and tossed us off the property. Be sure to check out any information you receive from DM, because it may be misleading and false. I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Owner's Response: The bar/grill and night club are no longer in business. Unfortunately are guest had it backwards as far as visiting sister properties. If you are a guest at Silver Beach Towers, you can visit Silver Shells. Not the other way around as this guest thought. We have different guest in each week, and I have never had anyone mention any type of negative feedback like the above.
