Beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

This is the best building on the property for our family. Great view of Gulf, pool and state park nearby. Grounds are immaculate and beautiful. Beautiful condo. Great closet space. Loved the comfortable king bed in the 2nd bedroom - great space. 3rd bedroom with twins .

Ceiling was leaking overhead the entrance from garage to pool but there were signs warning of such.

Should have been warned of construction noise for the week overhead the condo prior to arrival.

Kitchen is minimally stocked. We bought a cookie sheet and left it behind for future guests.

Best wishes!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the condo. This was our first trip to Destin and we had a great time. Love the beach bar, girls working there are great. Pool area had plenty of room for the off season crowd. We would stay at this condo again and definitely use Compass Resorts again. Our stay was during hurricane Irma and the resort did a great job of keeping everyone updated.

It was okay.

  • 3 of 5

This was our second stay at the Silver Shells resort. Our first experience two years ago was wonderful! This experience was not as great. ALL of the beds in St Croix 606 are terrible!! Especially in the master bedroom!! There are craters on each side where people have slept for years & an enormous hump in the middle. You can feel the springs & support bars in the mattress. I wish I were exaggerating. All the beds are past their expiration...too soft & you can feel springs. That being said, all of our other issues were handled quickly. The balcony doors were not opening, but they fixed that right away. The water is run backwards & it was tricky to find the hot water, but after playing with it for a while we figured it out. It went against all common sense. Everything else was good. The condo is decorated nicely & it was clean enough considering they were rushed to turn the units over. It would have been nice to get a call when it was ready (like the office said they would), but we had a key so we could see for ourselves that it was ready.

We checked out early because the beds were so bad. We were willing to pay for a hotel room in order to get a good night of sleep. We will rent at silver shells again, but not this unit.

The Silver Shells complex is wonderful

  • 4 of 5

I loved the location of Silver shells St. Croix. The grounds were beautiful too. I liked our unit but the beds were not very comfortable, hence the 4 star rating.

Robert was dirty and a lot of the appliances were not working

  • 2 of 5

Carpets were dirty. Toilets, showers, tubs were visibly soiled. There was grape jelly smeared across the master bathroom door and in the bathroom itself. The patio door didn't lock. The garbage dispoasal was broken. The jets in the tub don't work. The toilet wouldn't flush and ran all day. The chair in the living room was so filthy, we had to throw a fitted sheet over it to sit on it. We got there on Saturday and it took until Tuesday to get most things fixed. We had to have the cleaners come multiple times to get the place clean enough to stay in. The tub jets still don't work. I spoke with Kathy, the manager of compass resorts, on multiple occasions and she was rude and demeaning. Once I callled Liz, the GM, she refunded some of our stay. The resort was beautiful but the room was atrocious. I would not recommend staying in this unit.
