Great place, great beach, great pool! Love the harbor and closeness to anything you would ever need. Perfect weather and water was warm. No crowds either. Book here in October and you will be very happy you did!

We love this property and stay here every time we visit Destin. The location and amenities are the best! We were pleased once again with our condo.
Great View Nice Facilities!

Condo comfortably slept 6 in the bedrooms. We did not utilize the sofa bed. Wi-fi would have been nice but we were familiar with the area. This condo had two balconies which was unique. One balcony was beach front off of the master and living rooms and the other faced the highway and was off the other two bedrooms. We had a great stay loved the condo, pool, and beach. We will be back!
Won't be back
The srvice from Compass Resorts was terrible!!
Left on 08/17/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Won't be back
Booked this condo for the 3rd time in about 6 years. called the owner and we set the dates then she called Compass and that called me back to confirm. Somehow when we showed up to check in Compass had us coming in the day before. Spoke with a girl named angeline by phone Saturday evening and she said she would get it fixed and would work on it first thing Monday morning. Come Monday morning she is all of a sudden out sick so I talked to a manager and I believe she was amy. She said nothing they could do, I would have to leave a day earlier than we planned. She then said she can upgrade me to a 4 bedroom home at 50% off for the bargain price of $700 a night. You can look on Vrbo yourself and try to find a 4 bedroom, not on the ocean mind you, for the bargain price of $700 a night. They are all much cheaper. She said that was all they could do because they are just a third party in all this because I talked to the ownwer.
I only talked to the owner one time. All the rest of the communication was with compass resorts.
Destin is awesome but Compass resorts id terrible!! Do not use them!!! Read more
At Compass Resorts we strive to exceed the expectation of our guests. We feel the need to clarify some of the statements in this guest review. This guest did indeed book through the owner. The owner confirmed her dates as being the same dates that his reservation was booked. The contract was signed by this guest which clearly indicated the dates of his reservation which were discussed with the owner of the property.
Despite the confusion, we attempted to work with this guest in every way possible to accommodate his needs. We offered the only two properties we had available for the day he wished to add on to his confirmed reservation. I offered both to him at a 50% discount, one was a five bedroom home and with the discount was $700.00, which included taxes and cleaning fee, the other was half that amount. I called the owner of this condominium to confirm there was no confusion in the dates. She checked her correspondence with him which did reflect the same dates as our signed confirmation. I also suggested he contact the owner, as he booked the dates with her and if there was indeed confusion in the dates, she may issue him a credit to go toward the properties we offered him. The owner was never contacted by the guest.

We had a beautful view of pool and the ocean from our beautiful Condo St Croix 604 which was decorated beautifully. My grandson loved the big pool and walking distanace to the Back Porch resturant. Silver Shells Resort is a wonderful place to stay great location for everything you need. And Compass Resorts truly has the best staff to work with. Can't wait to coming back next year.
A Relaxing and Enjoyable Time Had By all

We enjoyed the ease of the time away. The property has all you could want and is in such a great location with a wonderful layout. We have friends who own in St. Martin and have always enjoyed Silver Shells as a resort option especially with teenage children. The unit was comfortable. I would add a blow dryer in the master and stock just a tad more toilet paper. We are bed pillow people, so a couple of extra pillows in the closet to use would be a nice extra also. All went well.
Wonderful Family Vacation

We had a wonderful time in Destin. We found Silver Shells St. Croix to be convenient, clean, and very spacious. We will be back.

Enjoyed my stay but had issues with the condo
Left on 10/21/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | Less than satisfied customer
We enjoyed our stay in St Croix 604, however the living room furniture was uncomfortable and insufficient seating for a 3 bdrm. The mattress in the second bedrm is worn out and extremely uncomfortable. This made for a very "unrestful" week for our daughter and her family. The view from the unit and balcony was fantastic but I would not rent this unit again unless the bedding and furniture improve.
When we arrived at Compass Resort office to check in and pick up keys for the unit that I paid for and reserved, unit 1104, our reservatioin had been lost. This was very upsetting!! We lost a day having to stay temporarily in one unit and then move to 604, which was not the unit that I rented. The Compass staff, however, was very nice and did follow up with me once we the unit.
Overall our stay was good.
A Week in Destin
Left on 09/01/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | Craig_75248
We thought our trip was going to start bad, since we did not get our keys mailed ahead of time, like the papaerwork described. This caused us to have to drive past our resort a few miles to retrieve them. That is where the miscue's stopped. The property was very clean and beautiful. We had 0 issues getting into our condo. (The Bell Hop Carriers in the garage, made it a snap to unload). Our view was breathtaking, and our condo was clean and ready for a week stay.
The resort was exactly like the pictures, maybe a little better. The huge pool was perfect for the kids when they wanted a change from the ocean. The walk up bar, made great drinks and food. It would have been nice to be able to reserve chairs on the beach through the resort, but we made that work as well.
Silver Shells is in a perfect spot, because the marina is a short drive and there is plenty to do within a 5 mile radius. Walmart is across the street, which is very convienent for those things your forgot.
Overall, great value and a place we would visit again.

First class accommodations! This is a beautiful unit with spectacular unobstructed views overlooking both the pools and the beach. The resort itself was great; secluded, secure, exceptionally maintained? the list could go on and on.
Fun in the sun
Left on 07/29/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | Beachlovers
Great location. We liked the accessibility to the pool and beach. Beachfront was alittle crowded with all the rental beach umbrellas and chairs. They need to be moved a few feet back away from the water and spread out in between so guests can get to the beach without having to dodge the umbrellas and other guests. Condo was nice, but could use some freshening up.
Wonderful - Spacious Condo

Our stay at St. Croix, Room 604 was great. The people including the guards were so kind & friendly. Our condo was decorated very nice with a kitchen full of necessities. It's a three bedroom, very spacious unit with a perfect view. You couldn't ask for more.

We just enjoyed a great stay at Silver Shells St Croix, 604. The panoramic views were beautiful and the pool area was perfect. We had stayed at Silver Shells in the past but had not been in a few years. In our particular condo, the master bathroom was huge and the jacuzzi tub was great. We were very pleased with everything from convenient shopping to the delicious food at nearby restaurants. There was also room service available from the Ruth's Chris Restaurant which is on the property.
Not only was the service and stay wonderful, but I was so surprised at how accomodating everyone was. My daughter left her driver's license in the room and housekeeping was able to mail it to us the following day. We were very pleased, great job guys!!!!
Beautiful Property and Family Friendly
Left on 06/04/2009 for a stay in May 2009 | Thornhill Family
We had a wonderful time vacationing at this St. Croix condo. The condo was very clean, well decorated, plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. The view was incredible!
This was our first big family trip with the kids and we were a little worried about taking an infant, but we were pleasantly surprised and pleased with the property. The grounds are well maintained and very family friendly. Easy access to beach, kiddie pool and playground.
The only thing I would say to someone with little ones is be sure you bring your stroller for up and down trips from condo to pool/beach. You will find yourself happy you made the extra effort to bring with you.
We will definitely be back next year.
