We have stayed at Silver Shells in different units over the years. I really like the St. Maarten building and the units we have booked before. This unit is nice with comfortable furnishings. It also has an ice machine which is a great perk. But the management of this unit certainly leaves something to be desired. I let them know the second day we were there that the cleanliness of the bed linens was horrible, and we were washing all the sheets again. One bed was filled with sand (in the sheets) and one bed had a Band-Aid stuck to the sheets. No kidding - a Band-Aid. The operations manager asked what she could do? I asked her what could she do.....Can she refund my cleaning fee? Get me beach chair set-up? Something to make up for the utter grossness of the beds? There was no reply. No effort was made to correct the situation or offer a consolation for having to do all the sheets the day after we arrived. But they were sure quick to charge for missing armbands (the pool passes) 2 hours after we departed the unit. The management company never includes beach chair set-ups either. We had to request information for the WiFi access as it was not provided in the unit or information for the unit. For me, I will ever again rent a unit from Best Beach Getaways. Be on notice.
The property was as described and we enjoyed our vacation, however, I am rating it 3 out of 5 stars due to customer service issues with the property manager, Best Beach Getaways, LLC (BBG). I have traveled many times using VRBO and have never had a problem until now. First, there was a little confusion with the initial reservation and then it was a challenge to get more than 2 parking passes through BBG, however we had no problem with the security gate when we asked for additional passes. Upon arrival, we met an agent at the entrance to the building and she gave us card keys and wristbands for the pool. I was vigilant about the keys because there would be charges for lost keys and/or wristbands. With four sets of adults using 2 keys, it was quite a challenge to keep up with them throughout the week, but we were successful in doing so. As requested, we left the wristbands and card keys on the kitchen counter when we left. For future guests, I would highly recommend giving the keys to someone in person because the day after I got home, BBG called to tell me that they charged my credit card because I had lost a key! WHAT??? That is impossible! The keys were on the counter when we left! The only thing that I can imagine is that housekeeping must have misplaced it. Housekeeping was another issue. The condo seemed clean when we got there, but after walking around barefoot for a while, our feet were black!
