The condo had everything we could need, great location. The view was amazing and the garden pool area is beautiful! We loved staying here!

My wife and I liked the location and the attractive grounds-nice pools, tennis courts, grills, and boardwalks out to the ocean. But there were problems. First, we are senior adults. The bed was upstairs, reached by way of a narrow spiral staircase. We managed, but potential renters should be notified of this. The TV malfunctioned immediately upon arrival and my attempts to reach out to Vacasa about this were never acknowledged. The shower leaked slowly the first day and got worse each day. I planned to report this when contacted about the tv, but when that did not happen, I left a note instead. Also, with beaches and pools being closed, some type of notification should have gone out. Again, nice resort, but the experience should have been much better than it was.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, James. 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 maintenance team to make repairs and improvements. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We loved the amenities at the resort- pools, hot tub, etc but our favorite was the short walk to the beach. Room was very nice.

Easy access to beach.

Affordable and nice

Staff was, at best, terrible. Trouble checking in had a vacation off to a not great start. The front porch area was being used a dumping ground for dirty laundry from the cleaning crew, leaving almost no room to seen in the run down building being used for check in. Upon looking inside, all you can see is mounds of dirty laundry & the way you received your key is in a lockbox, even though it said clearly in our check in email that the lockbox was only used for after hours check in. If we stay again, it will be solely because of the beach access & clean condo.

If you are looking for a Gulf Shores getaway that is reasonably priced, slightly off the beaten path, and on the beach, this is the place for you.
We arrived after 5:00pm so had requested a late check in. Clear instructions were given via text, so getting our keys and information was super easy.
The unit is exactly as described. Very small and in need of a paint job and some updates but clean, with a well- equipped kitchen. There is a nice view of the ocean from the balcony and the bedroom windows. The futon opens up into a decent bed that would work for one adult - (we slept two on it and it was pretty tight). We did not see the extra bedding until the next day, but we brought our own - there were plenty of pillows, some sheets and one sketchy blanket, so bring your own if you plan on using the futon.
The upstairs bed was pretty comfortable - there are no vents, so it was hot. There is a box fan that helps, but a ceiling fan would do wonders!
There are several pools which were all well maintained and there is a boardwalk to the beach. The beach is lovely and there are chair rentals for $35 a day (for a double chair an umbrella). Units do not come with beach towels, so bring your own.
We loved the area. Sassy Bass Restaurant is within walking distance and the Sassy Bass grocery store and deli is 5 minutes up the road. We would consider staying at Plantations West again but would rent a slightly larger unit for our family of 4.
