Recent Gulf Shores Plantation reviews
great resort, tolerable unit
"Positives: the resort is great - several nice pools, beautiful beach, unit in a generally quiet part of the resort. The owner allowed us to check in one night earlier than what was negotiated in our reservation. Gulf Shores Plantation Resort is ideal for families with kids as there is so much to do.
Negatives: this unit is not well-maintained. Peeling wallpaper, sagging, creaky floor, old, dirty kitchen cupboards. Our first impression was a large spill on the master bath floor along with a nasty, smelly bath rug and black mold growing on the floor trim next to the bathtub. The other first impression was an old salt shaker in the kitchen containing salt with a bit of rice. There were dead meal worms in the shaker; it went straight to the trash. The owner, whom we called right away, arranged to have his personal housekeeper come in the next day to do a thorough cleaning. We got over the initial shock and felt more comfortable after the housekeeper came to clean. This unit really shows its age despite a few updates like a nice microwave and ceiling fan."

"September was a perfect time to visit this area as the beach and pools were not crowded and the weather was great. This condo had a very nice view of pool and beach. It was clean and quiet too. We toured Fort Morgan, took a ferry to Dauphin Island, shopped at the outlet mall in Foley and tried some very good restaurants in area. Would definitely stay here again. Nancy was very friendly and made renting the condo an easy experience."

"The condo was wonderful. Very clean and accommodating. We had 4 adults and two young children staying here so the two separate bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect. We had a very pretty view of the ocean and enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the afternoons. We were very conveniently located right beside the indoor pool as well as a small walk to the outdoor pool and the beach. Our kids loved the pool near our condo. Having a two DVD players also helped out as well. Very satisfied with our stay here and we will definitely be back. The owners we very friendly and a breeze to deal with throughout the booking process and our stay."
