If you don't want to deal with Hilton or Marriott, this is a good alternative. We stayed in the efficiency on the second floor with a balcony view of the Gulf. The room was not lavish or large, but you could nap, watch the beach...More

Hi, we are actually on our way home from Shalimar and Sanibel, they just cleaned the beach a day or two ago, but dead marine life is still washing up. I wouldn’t recommend you cancel, (they don’t give deposits back I believe). The actual cottages were awesome and we really loved our time there, but you should be prepared for some dead stuff and some sinus problems because of the red tide. It wasn’t horrible but we did feel discomfort after being on the beach for a couple hours. Wishing you the best of luck!
