ocean view room
ocean view room was amazing. good sport facilities. we made good use of the shuttle service into ao nang but one improvement would be to have greater capacity for this shuttle service. Food options in hotel wasn’t great (but found an amazing thai restaurant 5 mins walk which we went to for lunch 4 out of 5 days)

Shell sea review
We hadn’t booked to stay in the shell sea and went to another hotel that was rated 4.5 star (beyond resort krabi) that clearly wasn’t. We switched hotels and got the pool side room in the shell sea. It cost a little more but tbh was well worth it. The hotel was perfect, great service, the rooms were modern and clean with excellent WiFi which is rare in these parts whilst the staff were so attentive and helpful. If we’d stayed in our previous hotel for the 4 nights then it would have ruined part of our trip but the shell sea was excellent. We’d definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend it.

Exceptional 10.0
I’ve stayed all over the world and this hotel is one of the best. Pure luxury from the second you get picked up from the port. The hotel room are beautiful and finished to the highest standard. Every fixture and fitting through the hotel is of the best quality. The staff and incredible and nothing is too much for them. My only slight criticism would be the restaurant and selection of food for dinner. Seems to be a bit of a hit and miss menu, however the quality of food we had it was excellent. 100% will be going back. 10/10

A really nice resort. The staff were friendly and happy to assist with all tours and excursions. We liked the private beach and the adults only pool is a good option. The free shuttles to Au Nang and Krabi were a pleasant surprise and are frequent enough for flexibility. There is also a free shuttle to the grocery store just 3 minutes drive. Highly recommended.

Excellent location for retreat. Great services from hotel staff.

Good 6.0
Nice hotel, but terribly over priced
We stayed in 8 different hotels on our trip throughout Thailand and this was by far the most expensive and most disappointing g. The hotel was a very nice hotel, but for the price and location I would not stay here again. This hotel was 2.5X more expensive than the hotel we stayed at in Ao Nang beach, so I was expecting a whole lot more luxury and service. It is out of the touristy area and not easily accessible to anything local in Ao Nang. Save your money and book someplace else.

Great resort, but...
Shell Sea is a beautiful new resort away from the bustling crowds. The beach is private and clean. The staff was terrific. So why the "but?" The food was a big disappointment. You expect it to be pricey at an expensive resort, but that quality should match. It wasn't. We ended up buying food at a Thai restaurant in Ao Nang and asking the hotel to heat it up for us in the morning for breakfast. Although the breakfast buffet had lots of choices, the unripe fruit wasn't replenished when they ran out. Also, the internet can be improved so you don't have to log in every time you turn on your computer.
