The property was completely BEAUTIFUL. The room was pretty clean, just felt sandy a bit on the floor; which is understandable, it being at the beach. :) The beach view/pool view is totally AWESOME. WE SO ENJOYED our stay at Shell Island Resort. The room was comfy and nice. Would definitely stay here again!! :)
