My friends and i stayed at Sea Shell Villa # 137 I believe. (i think most of the villas have the same look with different furnishing.)
Our stay was great we had a wonderful time all six of us. (3 couples)
this is a great place for young couples to enjoy.
one thing to note however for larger families this villa may seem to be too small as the stairway and the kitchen was a little smaller than what we expected. one other thing to note- the CD player does not play MP3's :) please keep this in mind when bringing preferred music.
Our housekeeper Susan was also great and understanding.
Security was also another asset to the villa.
all in all will return!!!! :)

I stayed at the Seashell villas in Feb. 2010 at villa #136. The stay at that time was pleasant and our housekeeper Donna was great. However this time around (March 2011) my family and I stayed at villa #126. On arrival the villa was dirty. The pool was not cleaned. The housekeeper Rhonette only came one day of the five days that we were there. She was not the friendliest person either, nothing compared to Donna, who came everyday she was supposed to. The lights in the living room and the one of the bedrooms weren't working. Half of the stove was not working. The house and furniture was old, there was also less furniture than the house we stayed at previously. The worst part of our stay was the MOSQUITOES!!! There's a swamp at the back of the houses on that street and stagnant water in the drains. The mosquitoes were enormous and tons of them. We had to lock the house up and couldn't use the pool or any of the facilities outside at night because we were bombarded by the huge mosquitoes. It was awful. I'll probably never stay there again and would not recommend to anyone until they find a way to resolve the mosquito issues.

I stayed at this resort with my family visiting from the United States and it was very disappointing. The villa was small, the bedrooms were smaller, and the pool was the smallest. There were several problems to contend with as well, such as air-condition units not working, certain lights weren't working, sheets and walls stained. Not to mention the most disgusting site upon arrival at the villa: stagnant water in the road with little fishes swimming to the front. There is also apparently some type of swamp to the back of the property that gives the entire area a stench. Oh yes, and there was also a plumbing problem which added another stench that made staying in the master bedroom practically unbearable. It was very upsetting to bring visiting relatives to such a location. The staff we had to deal with were not very helpful as well. I will not recommend this place to anyone at all.

Our party had two villas next to each other. They were very well presented and stocked. The house maids very helpful and went about their work in a discreet manner. The kitchen and balcony on the first floor were excellent. I imagine it to be very usefull in mosquito season. The beds were very comfortable, although some of the air con was a bit noisy. I would stay there again.

Our stay in April was short but sweet.
The maid service left something to be desired, but the slack was taken up by our ever-efficient agent, Marleis Mohammed, who came to our rescue, bearing toilet paper and dishwasher fluid :-)
The unexpected arrival of a large group of gardeners was also a bit unnerving, but with one phone call to our trusty agent Marleis Mohammed, they were sent away, and we were left to enjoy our lunch in peace.
