About Melanie and Gerry Thompson
We live in New Orleans and as much as we love it we still look forward to getting away to Sugar Beach any time we can. We costume for Mardi Gras, we dance to the music at Jazz Fest, and obviously enjoy the New Orleans restaurants.
Melanie and Gerry Thompson purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Melanie and Gerry Thompson chose Orange Beach
After visiting Orange Beach and Gulf Shores two or three times a year for about ten years we decided to invest in the area. We wanted a place that we could visit with our family and share with friends.
What makes this Condo unique
This place is great. 4 swimming pools, directly on the beach, tennis court, 2 elevators, BBQ pits, sun deck, snack bar at poolside, covered parking.. what more could you want. It's always immaculate, quiet and convenient. The beach is just a few steps away. There are every kind of restaurant, grocery store, wine shops and live entertainment within minutes of Sugar Beach. The Orange Beach area is very 'kid friendly'. We have Water Parks, Amusement Parks, Miniature Golf, 'The Little Zoo That Could' not too close to be intrusive but within 5 minutes.

Cozy Beach Retreat
Sugar Beach isn’t the flashiest complex in Orange Beach but don’t let outward appearances fool you. We’ve stayed here for the past ten years and have no complaints. This unit is one of the smaller units we’ve stayed in but it was just right for two people. The balcony is perfect for your morning cup of tea and reading in the sun. It is beautifully updated with comfortable furnishings. We enjoyed our annual week at the beach and will consider this condo in the future!
This was our first time in this area. We thought the location was great! Loved the pools, beach and the unit! We got some great crawfish from the Seafood place. Definitely a great condo - especially for the price!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We love Lartigue's' Seafood and since it's right across the street, the convenience too. The stores are close enough and far enough to work to our advantage. We'll be looking for you next year. (And anyone who books for next year before December gets to keep this years rates)
I loved my 2 month stay at sugar beach condos. The location was great, in between Orange beach restaurants and stores and Gulf shores. My only minor complaint is that if you are having someone stay in the hide a bed bring extra blankets. I found one at the thrift store and washed it and left it there. It was great to have a heated pool as the weather was cool when I first got there. I would highly recommend going on the dolphin watch cruise (Cold Mil Fleet), was well worth it. I also loved alligator alley, Fort Morgan area, the state park nearby. Some of my favorite restaurants were the Shrimp basket, Ruby Slipper, I also loved the hot foods bar at Rouses's grocery store for a fast dinner. Would definitely stay here again and hope to come back. Thanks for letting me stay at your great place. Jackie
Great place to relax
Condo very clean and owners very kind and informative and respond quick to questions. Only problem was cleaning crew came by at 8:00 AM knocking on checkout day and then again at 9:00 AM and pushy trying to get in the room before we had even finished getting dressed. Was already packed but very pushy.
Loved it, location, atmosphere, security.
We just got home from our week at 315 Sugar Beach and couldn't have had a better time. It was our third time staying at sugarbeach and this was the best unit we've stayed in so far. Owners were easy to get in touch with. Lots of linens, comfortable bed, all the pots and pans you can need to cook with on vacation. Automatic coffee pot, which was nice to have coffee made when you're waking every morning to catch the sunrises on the beach. I felt comfortable letting my teenage son's walk around the complex from pool to pool, with the security at the gate. Nice condo, family atmosphere, not overcrowded like some other places. Will be back.
You are the poster child for reviewers Kevin. If I had scripted a review it would look just like yours. Thank you so much for the kind words. There are a myriad of things to do at the beach and they don't all include the water; watching the sunrise is one of my favorites. There are hiking/biking trails, adventure parks, great restaurants with fabulous seafood, OWA theme park, putt putt, bumper cars and more. We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and we look forward to your return visit next year. Incidentally, anyone who books for next year before December 31st keeps the low rate they paid this year.
Budget friendly condo
This was a budget friendly condo. The over all complex was nice. I didn't enjoy the tight parking or often hot dirty/wet elevators. The pools and beach access were nice. The complex appears to be older and our unit was small but we made it work for our family. The balcony was on the very small side. The kitchen was nice and well stocked. Only complaints were there were no blankets for the pull out sofa available. There were plenty of extra pillows and sheets but the pillows need to be replaced as they did not appear clean and I didn't let my children use them. Also at least one of the outlets upstairs did not work and since there weren't many, it made it hard to charge your phone. Overall we had fun and would consider the complex again.
Thank you for this newsy review. The parking does get a little tight during the peak season. And I agree with you that people coming and going from the pools and the beach, tend to drag sand and water into the elevators, even though there are several hoses and showers to rinse off on the boardwalk. I'm really glad you mentioned the pillows and blankets, also because we were down there when this review arrived and we threw all of them away and bought new ones. It was unfortunate that one of the 8 outlets upstairs didn't work, we have an electrician scheduled to repair that one. I really glad you had fun because that's what vacations are about. Thanks again for the informative review.
