West Wind Inn: Great place on the Gulf!

My family also stayed at the West Wind and had a great stay. The hotel people are correct. The guests were not bitten by bed mites but by what locals call 'Nosee'ms' (no see ums) They are very small flying insects that do bite. We were told by some locals, not the West Wind personnel, about these insects. They are annoying all over the island but a little bug repellent and you are fine. If the complaining guest's doctor knew about the island he would not have diagnosed bed bugs. Getting back to the actual Inn, it is a wonderful place to stay and the personnel are very accommodating. We decided to stay an additional day after arriving and seeing how nice it was. We were told we could but would have to move to another room that was not booked for our additional day. They offered me the key to check it out first, which I did. It had a great view of the Gulf! Needless to say, we took it and had a great time. The staff even told us where our manatee crazed daughter could see wild ones up close, which see did and she has some one of a kind pictures of them with her.

They have a beach on the premises with chairs and umbrellas for rent if you want. Very secure area. While standing in the Gulf out from the Inn a dolphin swam within an arms reach of me.
There is a hut with a sink to use to rinse any shells you pick up from the beach so you don't have to use the room sink. They have a great poolside bar that also serves food from the onsite restaurant. The lunch prices for poolside food was very affordable(unlike some other resorts we have stayed at.) We are looking into visiting again this Xmas if possible. Find out for yourself and have a great time.
(Not sure if my pictures will work due to higher resolution than site recommends.)

Shalimar Resort: sanible rudest hotel

First they call this a resort, far from it. The manager Romas was pretty rude when asked for things such as turning the heat on the pool, we were told it's only 78 degrees, teh location was nice but thats about it. I would expect the rooms to be a little nicer or atleast have a good veiw for the price we payed, back to the veiws they call them gulf front or gulf view rooms but it was for like parking and building view. Don't stay if you want to have a good time.
