Wish there was something I could say that I liked about the place but there is not. The place looks like it hasn’t been updated since the 80s. The furniture is all stained and the beds are old as dirt. The comforter set on the master bed was discussing along with the hair all in the master bathroom shower. The first night we got there we had to make an immediate trip to Walmart and bought $225 of bedding sheets, blankets, pillows and cleaning supplies. We couldn’t enjoy our first night until we cleaned and changed the linens. We used pillow cases to cover the stained dinning room chairs and sheet over the couch. If your a light sleeper be aware there is a door going to condo building hallway that people go by all hours and it sounds like they are in the bedroom with you. I’ve never stayed at a condo set up like that. Looks like it used to be a hotel at one time possibly and they combined two or three hotel rooms to make one condo. On the up, the nice thing in condo was the paintings on the walls. Though they took a back seat to the walls and walls of mirrors. I’m not sure what the crap is up with all the floor to wall mirrors. The refrigerator was missing the handle but it did keep stuff cold. This place needs serious updating besides the floor. It did have fairly new tile floor. The pools were cloudy and dirty. I didn’t see anyone routinely cleaning them unless they did it in the middle of the night. The beach access is very nice. One other thing to mention, there is no washer and dryer in the condo! You have to go down to ground level and use the building’s laundry mat. That was terrible. I have photos of the place when we arrived if the company/owner is interested in the uncleanliness.

The ice machine and the dishwasher in this unit did not work. The shared dryers downstairs take two cycles to dry so plan to pay $6 a load for clean clothes. We loved that it was so close to the pool and beach. You literally go down the elevator and put the door and you are steps at the pool, boardwalk to beach, The Sassy Bass restaurant and tennis courts. We would probably stay here again, but not in this unit unless things were fixed.
Dane & Paola H. Aug 2020
loved everything about this condo, with the exception of the master suite bed. The place was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed.
The mattress likely needs to be replaced as we could feel the springs and the whole thing wobbled tons. We will stay here again IF THE MATTRESS GETS REPLACED!
Danielle H. Aug 2020
Great place to stay! Very accommodating for myself and my three boys. The view is amazing as well. Would definitely recommend and stay here in the future!
Angie K. Aug 2020
This resort has a great location away from the hustle and bustle of Gulf Shores! Multiple pools are great! No overcrowding at all! Enough room for 4 of us to spread our and enjoy! The view was amazing! Room is high enough to see the sunset every night! Will return for sure!!
Michelle M. Jul 2020
We loved everything about this little condo!! Zero complaints! Everything was clean and very well kept. We're already trying to figure how soon we can go back. The location was GREAT, the view..BEAUTIFUL! Its just outside of the real hustle and bustle of the Gulf Shores tourist area, like 15mins. The beach wasn't as crowded either. Currently suffering from the vacation blues😔..excited to go back!!

Loved the location and beach.
Ashley M. Jun 2020
This would have been a really nice place to stay, however I feel as if the property wasn’t throughly cleaned before we arrived. There were piles of sand in the couch bed, as well as a huge stain on the couch bed mattress. The stain on the mattress and mattress cover on the couch bed was enough for us to be uncomfortable sleeping on it. The garbage disposal has a terrible odor. The condo appeared to be renovated, which was nice, but the furniture could be updated. One of the twin beds slept at an angle, and of course the couch bed needs to be replaced as mentioned earlier. It was a great location and the view from the balcony was great.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Ashley. We apologize if the cleanliness of the home left something to be desired, and we will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We hope for the opportunity to impress you in the future.
Kristina S. Jun 2020
The location was great. Otherwise, be cautious. The unit was not cleaned before 4. We arrived at the unit not clean. There was no resolve until a supervisor was spoken to. Housekeeping arrived while on the phone with them. It took 30 minutes and that’s it! Previous renter’s items were left after being cleaned - from garbage to clothing. Same comforters used as previous renters (during COVID-19). Be cautious!
Manager response:
Hello, Kristina! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location of your stay. Thank you for your feedback and for bringing your cleanliness concerns to our attention.

We had such an amazing stay at the Plantation in Gulf Shores!!

Thank you to the owners who take time to appreciate all that is appealing at this location. Our stay was so comfortable from this room with 3 children included. The halls are a little noisy in the morning but there is a curfew that helps. From our view we could see the beach, tennis court and 4 pools; some of us were too sunburnt for a second day in the sun so we used other resources in the resort (the in door pool was everything we needed; spa and steam room included) thank goodness for the versatility that was offered with our condo. We did not account many facility while we were there which may be a good thing but we also did not acquire much from the staff for our stay.

We will always remember 5814 for our future stays there on the Coast. Thank you to the owners for opening your little place of comfort for our family of 6.

We will be back. ;)

The condo itself was nice, but the comforters on the twin beds were stained and dirty. The condo itself was noisy. The noise from the hallways was so loud that it sounded like it was in the room with you. The grounds were under construction the whole time and there was no mention of that on the website. Ropes were blocking our balcony. The thermostat didn’t work but was fixed rather fast. And they access code we were given didn’t work for our door. The location was beautiful, but overall wouldn’t choose to stay in that particular condo again.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you wouldn't stay here again. This unit was totally remodeled a year ago and is very nice. The comforters have been laundered. Thank you!

My family adult loved our mini vacation. Our accommodations were 2 bedroom 2 bath full kitchen and beautiful view of the beach. The room was very clean. The kitchen was stocked well with supplies. We will finally stay again. The location was perfect for us. We are not interested in the crowd or hustle and bustle.. it's at the far end of the island. FYI there is a beautiful historic military base at the end of the road. I wish we had found it before or last day.

We enjoyed all the activities available.
Tabitha A. Apr 2019
Very nice condo. The master bedroom bed is super comfy, plenty of extra pillows & blankets. Love the open concept of the kitchen & living room area & the view from the balcony is awesome. Only complaint is there isn't a TV in the 2nd bedroom.
Rachel H. Apr 2019
This condo is very nice and worked well for our family! It was updated and the kitchen was stocked with items we needed. The view from this side of the building was excellent as well! Our only complaint about the resort was the pools were so very cold! Other than that we loved our stay and hope to be back!
Angela A. Mar 2019
The view from this condo is amazing! It had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable. We notified management on a Sunday that the drain in the shower wasn’t working, and someone came to fix it within the hour The only suggestion we would make is that the second bedroom door sticks, so it cannot be shut all the way. We would love to come back.
