If you are looking for a QUIET, PEACEFUL, LOW-KEY get-away, this is it! We were lucky enough to be able to change our reservations from the hotel to a cottage at the last minute, and wow was the upgrade worth it. The cottage was clean and kitchen well equipped for light meal preparation. Only steps away from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico!!. Gas grills on-site for guest use was fantastic. Beach chairs are also available if you need. We did not use the pool itself, but definitely played shuffle board by the pool-fun! Office had fresh coffee prepared in the morning, and front office staff was very pleasant. Cottage did not have washer/dryer, but washing facilities were right there on site just steps away. Try to disregard previous negative comments about no daily maid service. This place is so peaceful you wont care and you will enjoy not being bothered by that daily knock on your door for housekeeping. Clean towels, linens, soaps and paper products were available every day just adjacent to the office. It's all part of the ambience of the Shalimar....enjoying relaxing, peaceful uninterrupted time together. The only thing slightly negative I could say was that the bed linens were slightly worn and could have been replaced, and the bed spread was dirty and needed to be laundered (we didn't use the bedspread anyway). BUT having said that, these were not deal breakers on our trip and certainly did not warrant a huge complaint to the mgt. Overall, we loved our stay at the Shalimar and we will definitely stay there again.
