Great cottage on the beachPosted Nov 4, 2013
Pros: We really like how comfortable the accommodations were. The atmosphere is relaxed and you feel like you are at your own cottage/cabin.
Cons: We liked everything about our stay, but the bathroom could be updated a bit. Most of the fixtures appear to be original, which was fine with us.
Location: Shalimar is on the beach so everything to do with sand and water is fun. We also enjoyed go into "Ding" Darling and kayaking at Tarpon Bay.
We had a terrific time at Shalimar Cottages and Motel on Sanibel Island. This is our first time at Shalimar and we plan to come back! The cottages were very comfortable and clean. I loved the beach decor. We had everything we needed. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Our favorite activity was to grab one of the beach chairs they have available for the guests and watch the sunset.

First time guestPosted Oct 1, 2013
Pros: Very clean cottage. Well kept grounds. Refreshing pool. Right on the beach.
Cons: If they could have stopped the noisy remodeling on the condos on the property next to the Shalimar, that would have been perfect.
Location: Right on the beach. Good places to eat and shop are minutes away by car. The Bailey Tract wildlife area is very close.
Our first two days were spent dodging rain drops on Sanibel. It was so bad the staff had to put boards down for us so we could get to our cottage without getting our shoes soaked. The Shalimar also had a lightning strike that took out our TV and wifi. The TV was replaced right away and they had their provider out the next morning to get the internet back up. We had cottage #11. Nice and clean with a bedroom, bath, small kitchen, living room and screen in porch. The pool was good size with nice warm water. You can do your own laundry for $2 a load. Lots of beach chairs were available for use. We also rented bikes and had a nice ride on West Gulf Drive. This was kind of the slow season so the place was not full up with guests which we really liked. I had picked this place hoping the wife would like. And she did!

Old Florida beach stayPosted Jul 28, 2013
We love staying at the Shalimar. It is always clean and right on the beach with a convenient kitchen. It is a great place to go and just relax.

My wife and I took our granddaughter for a long weekend in Sanibel and stayed at the Shalimar. The hotel was very clean and the staff was more than accommodating. We enjoyed shelling, fishing and took advantage of the nearby activities. We are native Floridians and live in the Fort Lauderdale area. The Shalimar hotel brings fond memories of what a beach hotel once was when I was a kid. Nothing extravagant but a lot of family fun. Will come back with grandma for a romantic weekend.
