My husband and I took my son and granddaughter to the Pink Shell. This was our third trip there. When we arrived we were happy to know we had the same room as last year. A two bedroom suite on the ninth floor. Amazing view. We were also so happy to see Ediba, who kept our room well stocked and immaculate. She also made little animals for our granddaughter and left them on her pillow. Thank you Ediba my granddaughter loves you. We had some great meals at Jack's for breakfast and Bongo's. Look for Danielle for a waitress she always had a smile, very friendly and fast. We spent a lot of time at the Octopool and Kit was our server. Another amazing waiter who ran that whole pool and was extremely friendly. We had another wonderful vacation at the Pink Shell and would never hesitate to book again. Also when booking I was trying to go through Epedia and could not get the room I wanted so I called directly to the Pink Shell and got exactly what I wanted and they told me they would always match the price that you find from a third party booking. Good to know. Thank you Pink Shell, we will be back. Pamela Stanley Cape Cod, MA Read less

So many things to do, activities for adults and children daily. A good breakfast included for two. The one bedroom villas are roomy with a great view from the big screened in balconies. Very friendly staff. Gloria in housekeeping is the best. Very attentive.
