Positive Reviews


Stunning views from every window

The hotel is configured in such a way that every room faces the ocean. They also all have oceanfront balconies, and guests simply loved being able to sit of the balcony and watch the waves crash, or watch through the windows inside.


They handle large crowds with professionalism

The staff is very friendly

Nearly everyone reported receiving excellent customer service during their stay at Shell Island Resort. The employees are friendly, happy to share a conversation or a smile with guests. Those that had something go wrong during their stay felt that the staff did everything within their power to quickly and efficiently rectify the problem.

Negative Reviews


It could use a little polishing

Guests couldn't help but noticed that the resort looks worn down here and there. Many guest reviews mentioned that their room needed a fresh coat of paint, and several more noted that the carpets in their rooms had begun to fray along the edges.


The rooms are rather small

Some guests felt that for the rate they paid the suites should have been larger, and claimed other hotels have larger rooms at the same price point. This was a particularly prominent complaint from guests who travelled with large families.


It could use a few more amenities and luxuries

While they generally enjoyed their experience, some guests felt it just didn't live up to the standards they expect from a resort. With the word "resort" right in the name, they had expected the furnishings and decor to be more luxurious, and expected there to be more resort amenities to enjoy.
