The resort pools were large and chairs were ample in availability. Beach chairs and an umbrella are included- which was a nice option. My teenager was able to rent a paddle board for free (included in the resort fee). Staff was friendly and helpful. The entire resort was incredibly clean- even the poolside bathrooms. We had a great stay and will be back! Read less

Pros: tons of pools and seating. Great food onsite at reasonable price. Huge two bedroom suites. Easy beach access. Free WiFi. Towels. Cons: expensive. Rooms need a facelift. Rooms could be cleaner. Far walk from room to lobby. Arcades older and broken. Gulf water is brown. Lots of seaweed on beaches.

The accommodations were very clean and up to date. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful and very patient. We especially appreciated Anthony from food and beverage, who seemed to be everywhere we ate and was always smiling and working hard to make our experience the best. He especially made us feel cared for and important. I would not hesitate to return to The Pink Shell for a Florida get away and highly recommend this exclusive beach resort! Read less

Aside from the spectacular views, all the staff was so friendly. In particular, Jason the bartender, was attentive and made me feel at home. Pink shell met our expectations for a family vacay with easy access to the beach and pool
