Shephard's Beach Resort Hotel Review: Thanks to the very popular and long-standing backyard Tiki Bar that boasts live music almost nightly year-round, there is usually a crowd partying it up at this hotel. Keep in mind that it's the kind of place that hosts bikini contests. The clientele tends to be made up of young couples over the age of 21 and a few loyal followers who have been coming here year after year. Guest rooms are stocked with a full collection of basic amenities, including coffee makers, hair dryers, microwaves, refrigerators, voice mail, free wireless Internet and more. All also come with patios or balconies. This resort offers a great Gulf of Mexico setting as well as one of the most active night scenes in the area. In addition to the Tiki Bar, it's home to the two-level Wave nightclub and The Sunset Lounge. While kids under 17 stay free with their folks, the majority here are over drinking age. Recreation includes a pool, Jacuzzi and fitness center. Room service is available.
