Verified Reviews of Shell Island Resort All Oceanfront Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Awesome resort experience!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We loved the resort and moreover it was at the end of Wrightsville Beach. It was a great experience of the beach and the area.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
06-Nov-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Sun Oct 31 to Fri Nov 05 2021 at a $115.99 average nightly rate.
"The overall stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The staff was friendly and professional. The wait staff in the restaurant were all accommodating and attentive. I would have preferred to see more racial diversity among staff but our stay was short and we are not familiar with the area work force population. The breakfast and lunch food was quite expensive relative to quality but it was satisfactory. The bedroom was quite cramped and the flooring was very gritty throughout. Also, having a bedroom window exactly where suitcases and chatting people are passing by during the night was a drawback. The beds were not especially comfortable but were ok. The coffeemaker was a bit obsolete. The view of the ocean was really great and walking the clean and not crowded beach was delightful. Parking was scary cramped but nothing bad happened. The additional costs were surprising (parking, some other fees besides the costly food) but the location for us made it worth while.

"Great location at dead end."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Wonderful location with natural areas and great views. It's located end of the main Street, making it more private, than most.

"Beautiful Location with Friendly Staff."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We had a great time at Shell Island Resort. Our room was clean, recently updated and had an awesome view of the beach. The staff was helpful whenever we needed it and the restaurant was okay for breakfast and lunch or a drink. It was apparent that there were still repairs needed from the hurricane last fall, but all in all it had little impact on our experience.
