We just returned from a week at the Shell Island Beach Club, 2 adults and 2 kids. The staff were so friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to do during the week. Bikes were always available. The kids borrowed helmets for the week and we just borrowed the bikes whenever we wanted to go for a ride. Pool is the perfect temperature! I asked a grounds crew member and he said it was heated to 86, lovely ... more

The excellence starts when you check in. We were greeted like family (maybe even better than that) and were given a briefing on the resort. Our room is wonderful! We are on the upper floor looking over the dunes to the beach. We can see great sunrises and we hear the surf from our room.
