Recent Silver Shells reviews

  • Great Condo with Excellent View

    "I am a little hesitant to write a review of this condo because I would like to keep it all to myself! The worst thing about it is that I had to leave. The Silver Shells property is excellent - kept clean, nice landscaping and secure. Compass Resorts did a great job making sure the condo was clean and ready upon our arrival. The only improvement I could suggest is upgrading the Internet connection. When I would attempt to connect securely to my work's server, it would time out because the connection was so slow. However, I took this as a sign from God to not work and only focus on enjoying myself with my family, the resort, Destin and my condo. This is the 2nd time I have stayed in this condo and will definitely book it again. Perfect walking distance to the Back Porch Restaurant for take-out orders. Fully functional grills on site and the condo had all cookware necessary to steam 9 oz. lobster tails we bought. Overall, i give this condo a very high rating and that is not easy for me to give out. Another thing is considering the interaction I had with another real estate management company last year, I am very appreciative of Compass Resorts ease of working with and great management of this property."

  • Our week in Paradise

    "First there is Destin no matter where you stay: Best beaches, best shopping, best restaurants Second St Maarten 503: Great condo on the beach. Great views of the beach and pool from the patio, watched dolphins swim by. Walking distance to two great restaurants, The Back Porch and Ruths Chris. Three bedroom accommodations where all three bedrooms have their own bathroom. Tastefully furnished. Even though we stayed in the middle of spring break it was quiet. Been staying in Destin for over 20 years. Discovered St Maarten last year but stayed on 2nd floor where there is no beach view. We decided then to come back to St Maarten and stay on a higher floor. So glad we did and we will definitely book here again."

  • A beach vacation treasure!

    "If you love convenience, comfort and relaxation this condo is truly 5 star! Location, location, location along with all the comforts of home make this the perfect getaway. From the beautiful balcony and its views to the spacious and tastefully decorated interior our stay was a dream. Being able to cook our meals in a fully appliance kitchen was a definite plus along with having access to beach chairs and towels made traveling that much lighter for us. We also loved having a designated parking spot in the garage protected from the hot sun and rain with easy access to the elevators. This was my second time staying in St. Lucia 601 but a first for my guests and they couldn't have been any happier and truly felt spoiled!! Can't wait to return!!"

  • Nice Condo but you can not see the beach.

    "We spent the July 4th week in this Condo and the condo is very nice and comfortable. I had read the reviews about the airport/plane noise prior to coming but I did not think it would bother us, but if you are outside you can not even talk to each other the noise is so loud. you can not see the beach from the condo patio, which I really missed. You can see a glimpse of the ocean between the buildings but not the beach. It took us several days to discover the best route to navigate thru the gates, garage, steps in the resort to get to the beach. We carried the chairs and umbrella's that are provided in the condo (nice bonus) but we were not allowed to set up our own umbrella's due to liability reasons. You can rent the beach service umbrella and 2 chairs for $50 day. and the rows of these umbrella's are 3 deep all across the resort private beach. there is not any space in between the umbrellas, all umbrella's touch, so you do not have any privacy using these chairs you are less than 12" from the person sitting next to you. We took the umbrella and went over to the public beach one day, but there were so many people that you could hardly find a spot and the multitude of people blocked any breeze. The condo resort is very clean and they have a very nice small pool attached to the St. Lucia building. They also have some really nice outdoor kitchen grill areas and it seemed that every night there were many families that used them. There is 6 arm bands and 4 or 5 key fobs in a green bowl in the condo. We were told to wear a purple arm band the entire time you are at the resort, but we only seen a couple of people wearing them. The key fobs open the gates to navigate thru the resort and are needed. We talked to several people who complained that they only had one or 2 fobs. The parking garage is nice, and the parking spot for this unit #605 is conveniently located directly in front of elevator. The lagoon pool is nice, plenty of chairs and clean. They have a waitress that will bring you drinks while you relax. We walked to the Candy Maker store one night which is adjacent to the condo parking lot. It is a nice place to take kids as they have every flavor of Jelly bean imaginable, you can also watch them make salt water taffy, and buy it by the flavor and pound. Nice selection of chocolate covered everything too. We walked over to the back porch one day and ate raw oysters, and their specialty Back porch backed oysters (raw was the best)."
