Great Vacation with the family

We are repeat guests of the Pink Shell and again had a great time! Our 3 year old loves the Octopool, the craft time, and don't forget the Sundae bar. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite that had a few issues. The friendly maintenance staff resolved our plumbing issues, though 2 of our 3 phones didn't work and one of the bedrooms didn't have the flat screen tv, but had an old style tv that was fuzzy and hard to watch. Other than that we enjoyed every minute there. However, when making your reservations I would advise to ask if they have any weddings going on as you lose a lot of your pool deck space to private parties. Sometimes the shaded area is a nice break but it was blocked off for 3 days straight due to weddings.

The best on the island

Even though we only stayed one night, we still got there early enough to enjoy the beach, pool and a little bit of night life in the area. The room had a nice view of the ocean where we were able to see the sunset. Definitely a place to stay again in the future.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Right in the town square, there is lots to see and do. Many different restaurants to eat at as well. Definitely walk out onto the pier to see the entire beach and a beautiful sunset in the evenings. They even have a sunset celebration every evening with entertainers.

Perfect weekend getaway!

We LOVED our stay at the Pink Shell resort. Everything was clean and the staff was extremely friendly. The complimentary breakfast was fabulous with a beautiful view. The room was very spacious and quiet. We were in the main building and it was very convenient. The location was just one mile from the pier/Time Square area and was a peaceful walk to get there. They do automatically charge $400 to your room as a credit to use at the restaurants, bar, and store. Whatever you don't use gets put back on your card. It would have just been nice to know beforehand. Overall we had a perfect experience!

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Since your hotel room has a full kitchen, drive down to the local liquor store or Publix for drinks, snacks, and food. We ate a large late breakfast, had snacks, then a nice dinner. Hardly spent any money!

It was an incredible stay at the PinkShell. Best staff I've been around, led by Bob right out front. He couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Great guy!

Ladies Long Weekend Away

We had 2 different rooms Sanibel Studio & Captive 1bedroom. Both had beautiful waterfront views. Studio was nice a little oldish but the one bedroom was supreme. Both on upper floors no noise issues. Bathroom in one bedroom huge toilet has door nice feature! The staff always willing to help often w/ o being asked! Pools are great but I LOVE the stand up boards and kyacks included! I miss Willie from the omelette station as I am back home. Planning another trip there in March 2015. Go there!
