Had a Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (two adults, four children ages 2, 5, 6, 9) recently stayed here for a week, and overall we had a great time. I'll try to break down the good (and not good) of this unit, keeping in mind that a lot of the cons below are probably major nitpicking...

Pros

--Spacious unit, clean and in very good condition.

--Plenty of pots, pans, bowls, plates, utensils, etc in kitchen.

--Comfortable beds

--Plenty of pillows, batch towels, bed linens, etc.

--Large balcony with plenty of furniture

--Sippy cups, utensils, and even a booster seat if you have a little one.

--Air conditioner/dehumidifier had no trouble keeping temperature comfortable.

--Front door is right next to the elevator, which makes for easy access.

--Unit also located right next to the walk way over to the beach club (beach access, pool, hot tub, etc).

--TV's in every room with Dish Network programming.

--Beautiful stretch of clean beach

--Lounger/umbrellla rentals are available for an additional charge

--Large hot tub, never too crowded

--Uniformed guard on site at all times

--Good communication with owner and very clear expectations of how to leave things upon departure

Cons

--Because the unit is right at the intersection of the walkway and the elevator, inconsiderate people on their way back from the beach club can be noisy late at night and wake anyone who might be sleeping (like small children who are then hard to get back to sleep).

--This is a low floor and so the view is minimal. We knew this going in from the pictures, and with small children we don't spend a lot of time relaxing on the balcony anyway so this wasn't a problem for us.

To sum up...overall we had a great time and feel like we got a good value for our vacation budget. Take away the noisy people just outside this unit and it would have been perfect!

Nice comfortable condo with easy beach access.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice comfortable condo with fast easy access to the beach. I liked the fact that we were right next to the cat walk. Lots of pools to enjoy. Small grilling area out in back parking lot was not ideal but we made it work one night. The view in this particular unit is not great but my family doesn't spend a lot of time on the balcony. All in all a good unit at a fair price.

Great Condo! Fantastic Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our trip! It was spacious and great for 2 couples. The beds were very comfortable and he bathrooms were roomy! The couch was incredibly comfortable as well and would be a good option for an additional person. The amenities are fantastic including 2 outdoor pools, 2 hot tubs and an indoor pool. The condo staff were also very friendly. The owners were available for questions and even helped last minute when I realized I didn't receive email communications from them due to my email spam. Would love to rent this condo again!

Nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Fast reply time from the owner Tim. It was our first time renting a condo and was a little worried about scams. He answered all my questions and everything went very smoothly.

The condo I thought was in a very good place. You get off the elevator and your right at your door. The walk- way to the pool and beach are right around the corner. I also liked that there were carts to hall your suitcases and grocery's up to the condo. The condo was updated and did not look in sad shape, as some. It was well stocked with everything, as we did Cook quite a bit. The master bed was so comfortable, We slept like babies. We

enjoyed our stay very much. It was a stress free stay at the Towers and we enjoyed our first, but not the last time in Gulf Shores. Would stay again, Thanks

Great location and Amenities

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just got back from Gulf Shores and stayed in this unit. We really enjoyed our time there. It is in a convenient location. The complex has good amenities. The air conditioned walkway going across the street is just around the corner. Beautiful ocean views from the pool closest to the ocean. Partial ocean view from the balcony. We would stay here in the future.

It's bigger on the inside

  • 5 of 5

When I first looked at the pictures, I was afraid this unit was going to be too small for our group of 8. Quite the opposite, there was more than enough room! There was both an air mattress and a well-padded cot provided. They also provided bath towels and plenty of pillows. Additionally there was all the cooking instruments you might ever need. Both the elevator and the beach walkway are immediately outside the door which makes for extremely easy access to the beach/main pool and the lobby with the small pools and gym. The only con was that it occasionally got very noisy due to the close proximity of the elevator and walkway. We would definitely stay there again.
