No longer a resort

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 7, 2011

No longer a resort! My family and I have been going to Silvers Shells (SS) for eleven years. We have always loved the property and stayed in the same unit each year. We skipped 2010 because of the oil in the gulf but were eager to get back in 2011. What a difference 24 months makes!! We were curious as to why the price dropped and when we arrived on the property we understood. The person behind the counter greeted me with “you need something?” From there it was all downhill. There is no longer any poolside service. Property was not kept cleaned. Activities for the kids have been eliminated. The tiki bar was closed several days so you could not even walk to get a drink. Kid’s pool and hot tub were never cleaned. Because the price has dropped the clientele level has dropped also. People were yelling and screaming on their balconies until the early morning. I have never seen so many mullets and tattoos. No security was present like in past years. One guy was so drunk that he vomited in the pool and it had to be shut down. A fight almost broke out at the pool. This would not have been tolerated in the past by SS. At one time this property was a family oriented place and was a true resort. Now SS is no more than a glorified Holiday Inn at best! If you are looking for a large hotel room on the beach then this is your place. If you are looking for a family oriented resort with activates and great services then stay away!!!!!!
