    The location of the Shalimar is amazing. The beach is literally out your front door. And the beach is one of the most beautiful I have been on. Driving onto the property, the cottages were very quaint and the property appeared to be well taken...More

    This was a wonderful resort. Very relaxing, clean, and had everything we needed. The rooms were spacious and well stocked including kitchen. The beach was just steps out our door and private. The staff was very friendly and helpful also.

    We love Shalimar. No frills, just old Florida charm, steps from the beach. Staff is very friendly, grounds are beautifully kept.We love the screened labia for breakfast or sunsets. We hope to return soon with or kids and grandkids.

    Nice staff, nice rooms. But the neighbors played loud music all night. And the staff leaves the office at 9pm so there was no one there to do anything about it. Other than that it was a nice place to stay.
