Really enjoyed our stay and will return!!

Property was very nice. No dishwasher in the units so if you are there for a while it is not convenient. Parking lot should be better lit!!! There was no outside service for drinks or food on Thursday and Friday, not sure why.

Views are nice

We really enjoyed our stay! The room/ condo was very up to date and modern. Kitchen was well equipped and the view was incredible

Good pool area and amenities for family activities.

Uncomfortable bed/bed linens Bad towel rods came off walls

The place is very old and outdated. There is a lot of deferred maintenance. There are small things that they need to work on that could happen with a user experience. Things like no soap. Things like one towel for four days. The electrical set up is poor. The porch is non existent. They make the place seem luxurious. It is very very far from this. For what I paid, it is second rate. The only good thing was the staff I encountered behind the counter were all super helpful.

Great place! Beautiful view of ocean. Amazing location.

Very nice! Enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much.

Although it was an older building, it is very clean and fresh.

Beautiful property and staff was sweet. I encountered at least 5 different employees and each one was nice and helpful! I never wanted to leave. We actually ended up staying 2 extra days! Coming back soon!

Beautiful view from our deck, clean and comfy. Staff was really great - personable and professional. Plenty of parking, immediate beach access... as a whole the property is excellent and a great value for the cost. The in-house restaurant/bar had very good food at a reasonable price (for an in-house restaurant/bar). Nothing else, food-wise, in walking distance, but LOTS of great locally-owned (and franchise) options within a short drive. OK, and probably within walking for people healthier than us. In-room amenities lacked. Two tiny round bars of soap, one set of towels in bathroom. There was a small coffee maker in the kitchenette, but the coffee available for brewing was probably older than my youngest child (he's 24, by the way). That was a road-trip to WalMart, but it was only 10 miles away. Bed was king sized but horribly uncomfortable. One side had an oval-shaped pit in it, the other was hard as a rock. Only one of the 4 pillows was soft. Wife ended up sleeping on the small loveseat in the living room, and still came home with a traumatized back. The tub filled to your ankles during a 5-10 minute shower and took 15 minutes to drain out for the next person to have a turn. All-in-all, unless you get room 417, I think you'd really enjoy your time at Shell Island Resort!

Great ocean view but some of the rooms are a bit dated.

The property was wonderful! The staff was so nice and pleasant! Our only complaint was the mattress on the sofa bed was horrible we could feel the bars through it and the noises coming from above on the tile floor when something was dropped at 1am 😒 rugs would be a nice addition to keep that from happening.

Room was clean and comfy. Everything else was good. Even with covid, they could have continued with the free breakfast with options like touch free pre packed breakfast. Or simply update the amenties that werent available so that guests could come prepared ahead
