"We we arrived we were wowed by the decor and the view. It was amazing. The condo was very accommodating. Only had one issue. Too many people coming off the streets to use the facilities. Seen many come from other properties walk in the lobby and use the bay side pool and indoor pool and walk across the sky walk and use the other one. No one hardly had on the wrist bands. When I pay $2100, I would expect better. Then when I had to move my cars from being littered on by food and what being thrown from upper floor's. I had to move to the back parking lot. Other than that a great place to stay. CT needs to be better staffed. Especially around the busy season's.

"My wife & kids (ages 3 & 1) stayed here in September and loved it. The unit & the entire complex is as described and just as it appears in the YouTube videos. The view from the 20th floor is fantastic since you're well above the condos across the street. The 3-minute walk to the large pool/beach area is not bad at all. Our kids actually enjoyed watching cars go underneath us as we walked across the air-conditioned walkway. The large pool area is great, especially for kids. Pool is very large & has a lazy river with a bunch of fountains (another hit w/ our kids). Also a huge hot tub & plenty of lounge chairs (both by the pool and on a separate sundeck above the pool). Some areas could use a minor facelift (e.g., a few missing/cracked tiles in the pool area) but nothing that will interfere with your enjoyment. If you don't want to walk to the large pool, there's also a smaller outdoor pool & hot tub at the base of the condo. Adjacent to this outdoor pool is a heated indoor pool, which came in handy one morning when we had rain.
There are plenty of elevators, and we never had to wait long for one. Unpacking is a breeze, too, as there are lots of luggage/shopping carts near the elevators. Walking from the elevator to the unit, you get a beautiful view of Little Lagoon as you look out to the north. The balcony views of the beach & ocean to the south (and sunsets to the west, of course) are even more spectacular. The unit itself is very nice. Kitchen & laundry room are well-stocked, and there are some games & books in the family room. We loved the balcony and spent a lot of time out there (eating lunch, watching the sunset, listening to the waves & looking at the stars at night).
Gulf Shores is a great town with plenty to do & lots of dining options nearby. Some that we went to have decent food but are a bit touristy such as Original Oyster House & The Hangout (although this place seems like it would be a lot of fun during peak season). By far, our favorite meal, though, was Bahama Bob's. Close by, nice location right along the beach, and great food. The steamed Royal Reds shrimp were amazing and the burger & fries were excellent as well. Even simple things like my son's grilled cheese was one of the best I've ever tasted. Even if you have a wait, it's well worth it.
Lastly, both the owners & the management company (Young's Suncoast) were great to work with. Would definitely consider coming back & would highly recommend to others."

"This condo will not disappoint. The view is amazing and the complex is wonderful. Condo was super clean and the owner was great to work with. My emails were quickly responded too, great communication. The complex was amazingly quiet for how big it was. The pools were great and the air conditioned walk way was perfect, it made it really easy to walk to the beach with all our beach gear and we did not have to worry about crossing the street. The view was amazing. Would recommend this condo to everyone. Will definitely be staying here again. Thank you again for such a wonderful place to stay."
