    The location is great. The Beach is fantastic. The atmosphere is ok- liked the Buffet singer at the pool. View from room was nice.The room was nicely furnished.

    Seriously understaffed. Needs more elevators- thankfully we were on the second floor and just used the stairs. Long wait for beach chairs- gave up on that one. Bedding sucks.

    The hotel is in a great location, at the end of the beach, and very secluded, which is nice when you have small children. The ocean front balconies look right out onto the beach and the view is beautiful.

    The room had not been cleaned well before we checked in. The trash from the previous occupants had not been taken out and was overflowing in the bin under the sink. The linens and decor were dated and not particularly comfortable. When we arrived at 4:30, our room was not ready yet, so we had to wait an additional hour and a half to check in. The outdoor pool was much too cold to swim in, and the indoor pool was being cleaned while we were there, so my children were very disappointed that they were unable to swim. When I went to gather some things off of the bed in the morning after our first night, I found several bed bugs and evidence that they'd been feeding (blood dots and trails). My husband searched the bed further and found several more bed bugs in the folds of the mattress. We alerted the hotel staff, but there weren't any general managers on site, so the only the accountants were available to look over our room. They gathered the bed bugs (we'd placed them in plastic bags) and confirmed that they were bed bugs, although they said that they were unaware of any existing bed bug problem at the hotel. We were offered a full refund for our stay. In order to make sure that we would not bring any bed bugs home with us, we were forced to cut our vacation very short (we'd planned on staying 3 nights) so that we could get our clothing laundered and treated as soon as possible. After consulting with a professional who deals with bed bug infestation we were advised to throw out any items that were in the hotel that could not be thoroughly laundered in hot water immediately, which included all of our luggage and some expensive shoes. We have yet to receive any compensation for these items.

    When we stayed a month ago we loved it( room 402.) We had a premium room and it was very nice. Tile floors throughout, fan in the room, new dining table. This trip we didn't enjoy! We thought we had a premium room (or really that all the rooms looked like the one in our previous stay) however it wasn't. The carpet in the hallway was wet because the air cond. unit leaked. In the next room, the tub leaked. We won't be back!

    I liked the location. Being right on the beach was fabulous. The staff was also exceptional.

    The design was outdated. Needs to be upgraded. Balcony door would not lock. Maintenance staff fixed it immediately. The beds were to short and the sheets were scratchy. Hotel maid service did not sweep up sand in the bathroom, when they came to clean only replacing towels during our stay.

    Location on the beach.

    I was disappointed in the quality, amenities and luxury of the hotel for the price. The website made it look very plush, which was the only reason I came despite the cost. It was very basic. The restaurant was very disappointing and the bed sheets felt like sandpaper. The hotel way way below my expectations, I'm sorry to say.

    Location

    Needed to request hand soap, dishsoap, extra towels - even coffee! Not enough of these items in the room. Small kids in the hottub are annoying & they took it over during our stay. Shame on the parents for not caring or paying attention but perhaps Shell Island needs a better/bigger sign?

    Shell island needs a major renovation/overhaul. The service for the restaurant was horrible. ( we are in the food/beverage industry) there was no bar set up outside or poolside service. Shell island could be "incredible" if it had a facelift, more resort like, and payed attention to customer detail. The front desk and bell boy were great, but other than that, I can't say too much more. We will be staying at Blockade Runner!!!

    I liked everything, from the time we stepped foot in the Resort till the time we left, everything was clean, and comphy, The kids enjoyed themselves, and the STAFF! Oh my they were AWESOME, KIND, GENERIOUS AND HELPFUL I give this Resort 10+ stars, This was our second visit and Im heaed back in June and again in August of this yr 2013.

    The fact that my time was up, and I had to head home :( was heartbreaking.
