My dad and I stayed here for my 25th birthday. We really loved the oceanfront views and easy walk to the beach. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the cleanliness. On the surface it looks tidy, but it needs a good deep cleaning! Dust behind the bed, new air filter, etc...
Manager response:
Hi, Haley! We hope you had a wonderful birthday and appreciate you staying with us. A deep clean for this home has been scheduled. Thank you!

Just finished our second stay at the Plantation East, #1201. Really enjoy the location. Love the solitude of being on the corner of the property. Were disappointed to find that the screen door still is not fixed. We reported this from our stay last September. Also the glass door will not lock. The lock on the door frame appears to be broken off. There is nothing for the door to latch too. Outside of that, we enjoyed the stay. It was great for just two of us on our anniversary last September, but was a little tight for 4 adults this time. Would not recommend more than 3 adults. Just please fix the screen door. We ended up just setting it over in the corner of the balcony.

My family has been coming here for the last 30 years and the place has really gone down hill. We were told we couldn’t use all of the pools because the HOAs (yes there are multiple) were fighting. Laundry services are no longer offered and the place looks like it hasn’t been updated since 1990. Our room was not very clean, there were stains on the couch and the carpet was dirty. It was advertised as being able to sleep five, but the four that we had were very uncomfortably accommodated. The pull out bed was a double sized bed and we were given twin sheets. Of course, because everything has been outsourced and remotely managed, we had no idea who to contact regarding this issue. When we arrived, the code we were given for the Elock on the door did not work, and we had to spend 45 minutes on hold waiting for someone in Seattle to fix our issue.

Overall this was a fairly disappointing experience...
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Ali. We are sorry to hear this condo was not as expected. We appreciate you bringing these items to our attention, and we will work with our local team to make improvements. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Our stay at Plantation East was very peaceful. The resort had many amenities to enjoy. It was a little further away from Gulf Shores than we prefer, but we had a great weekend getaway.

Just the right size for a couple with a great view of the Gulf. Overall, the decor is bright but could be spiffed up in some areas (I would make my rating a 3.5.) The property, overall, was nice. We enjoyed our stay, the weather was great (last of the extended summer burn!), the water wonderful...we'll be back!

Great view; quiet and peaceful. This was our 2nd year at the Plantation. The floors appeared dirty. Balcony could use hooks to hang wet swim wear. Would be nice to have a full length mirror on back side of bedroom
or hall door.
Manager response:
Hello, Clarence, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have sent this request to our local management team to address. We do hope you allow us to host you again in the future!

We chose the Plantation for a weekend trip to celebrate our 41st anniversary. So glad we did. Loved the location, #1201, the privacy, the view. Hope we can return. One thing kept me from giving 5 stars...the sliding glass door and screen. The door does not work properly, and the screen is bent and was leaning against the outside wall when we arrived. I tried to put it back on the track. From other comments before our trip, this has been and ongoing problem. Hope you can get it taken care of.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We did get the repair for the door and track scheduled prior to your arrival and apologize for any difficulty you experienced. The door is fixed and working great, and the screen will be replaced soon.

This room was okay. The bed was not comfortable and the shower and shower curtains were disgusting. The living room furniture was comfortable and the view was beautiful. The balcony lacked any good furniture. I wouldn’t stay here again.
Manager response:
Hi, Katie! The shower curtain has been changed, and we have advised the owner of your comment regarding the bed and balcony furniture. We do hope to have another chance to impress you again!

We enjoyed our stay. We had the best view of the ocean on the second level so we didn't have to see people walking by all the time. It was also quiet and VERY close to the boardwalk, which my husband appreciated. The kids were happy to be near the pool and Kona Ice stand. The condo could use some updates, but we came for the view and beach, not so much for the condo. The patio door was difficult to open. We had to lift it, instead of sliding it.

My husband and I decided on a Tuesday that we were going to take a quick trip down to the gulf that weekend. We were able to reserve this adorable little condo for a very reasonable price. The condo was clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. My kids loved that that could sit in the rocking chairs on the balcony to listen to the waves crashing on the beach at night. The property is right on the beach, which is SO convenient with you have kids and all of their "beach stuff" in tow. There are 5 or 6 outdoor pools and a couple indoor pools as well. I would definitely stay here again!!
Jeremy W. May 2019
Well loved our stay at plantation east. It’s is right on the beach with a beautiful beach view. 1 bedroom, 1 sleeper sofa and a small set of bunk beds built into the hallway. They have indoor and outdoor pools which is really nice when you have small children. The only problem we had was it was difficult to get the balcony door open; it was like it was sticking. Other than that everything was great!
Manager response:
Hi Paul, thank you for staying with us! We are appreciate your feedback. We have made adjustments to the patio door to facilitate easier handling. We look forward to hosting you again!

Absolutely loved this condo and property. Perfectly situated just close enough to the touristy stuff, but far enough away to relax as well. And, thus particular condo was perfectly located for a fantastic ocean view!
