Room needed to be updated, stains on couch, chair and pillows. Needs to be sprayed for roaches. Called Vacasa about parking passes not being in the room, sent text messages for 2 days to get a piece of paper delivered (parking passes) to our room, we could not leave the condo unless we purchased a parking pass, we never did get one.
Ronald, thank you for the review of your stay. The room is sprayed on a regular basis for bugs. The local manager has made sure the condo has been thoroughly sprayed in all areas. The furniture has all been cleaned as well. We apologize for the communication issues concerning your passes. We hope we get a second chance to impress you. Thank you for being our guests.

To celebrate my birthday, I flew in for the weekend and spent the week in paradise! All was pretty amazing except for the room/the plantation. I’ve been coming to the plantation every year, since being a small child. I’ve never had a more outdated, ran down, smelly, falling apart, condo… in roughly 25/30 years. Used shampoo and conditioner, soap bars in the bathroom, a load of towels in the dryer, dishes in the dishwasher, sand in the “clean” sheets, blood smeared on the bathroom wall, and a dead rodent odor that would not go away. The couch was blue/gray flower print from the 80’s, which would’ve been beautiful, only it’s not supposed to be gray at all- it’s just the filthy layer of years and years of use and never being replaced…so nasty we didn’t sit on it. I was just there in June with the whole family, and noticed some things with the 3 condos we had on the first floor of the palms, and we also sat 53 minutes on hold waiting for a door code to get in, and not a single REAL PERSON was around to help. Sucked after DRIVING 15 hours with 21 family members, being ready to get out of the car… but we let it go and didn’t want to make a fuss… it’s just sad to see how down hill the place has gone as a whole. If you’ve never been, you don’t miss what you don’t know.. for those who’ve known it as their 2nd home, you just know!!. The resort workers used to chat in person while cleaning up around the courtyards, ask you how your stay was going.. they had real live people there, willing to help you navigate your trip, get settled in, enjoy your stay… I can only imagine the money that we’ve spent over all these years…You pay for a service, for a nice get away and to relax and unwind. Half the pools and hot tubs were out of commission half our stay. I noticed over the last few years, they close all pools, hot tubs and amenities at 10, it used to be 11. So night swim for grown ups hasn’t been a thing for our family down there in a long time. The security staff working the check in gate- horrible! “The first impression”is those people- renting balls, racquets, golf clubs, you have to deal with these people. They made me leave my drivers license for a golf club rental, when coming back that evening, my ID was lost. The lady there first accused me of lying, and had a really bad attitude with me and said “we’ll I don’t know what to tell you”. I took a picture of their 1-800 support number and was going to reach out to their higher up… obviously I needed my ID/DL to drive and travel. The gentleman with longer hair, ball cap and beard was very helpful, and ultimately found my ID. But only after the lady, I think Pat was her name; accused me of lying and then told me basically “oh well”. These are the people representing your company and dealing with your paying customers- change it!! Gods scenery, never disappoints.. but between our June family trip and now this weekend trip. I think I’ve had enough and it’s time to find a new home away from home. Gulf shores plantation is now, no more than a place to lay your head at night and use some (whatever’s not closed, closed early, or broken) amenities.
Lacey, we are truly sorry to hear that you’ve had a less than stellar experience with us. We pride ourselves on providing the best possible vacation experience, and it sounds like we missed the mark this time around. We are disappointed to see that these concerns were not reported to us during your stay as we would have been happy to assist. We have forwarded your comments to our local staff so that appropriate action may be taken to make improvements to both our accommodations and service. We hope for another chance to deliver a 5-star experience to you in the future!

We have stayed in at least 8-10 different condos at Gulf Shore Plantation. This room was the only one we didn’t enjoy. All of the patio furniture was either broken or very cheap and uncomfortable. One of th bar stools legs where bent and you couldn’t sit on it. The skillets to cook on where as cheap as I have ever seen. They where so thin I couldn’t cook on them. The stove top eyes where crooked. The over all them was cheap furniture and cheap appliances. Needs a huge upgrade to come close to all the other rooms we have stayed in from out many trips in the past. We will never rent that room again. Ever!! I would not recommend it to anyone. They only had 2 rolls of toilet tissue and only 2 trash bags and we where staying for 5 days. We also had several issues with the door locks and had to call to get back in the room. I feel like we waisted our money on this room. We will be back to Gulf-shores in the fall but not in this room. I would suggest that the owners invest in new furniture, over, and cookware and for goodness sake get a spatula to cook with. There wasn’t one in the condo. The beach, the pool and everything else was awesome as usual. The room was the worst ever. Just being honest.
Thank you William for your review. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and have shared this with out team to improve the home for future guests. Please note that our homes typically only provide basic essentials, and any additional supplies are the responsibility of our guests. We hope to have a chance to better impress you in the future.

All of the comforts of home.... most beautiful view from the balcony! It was amazing!!! Everyone was very friendly! Very clean beaches!!! We even got to see some stingrays!
Leneisha D.Sep 2021
I wasn't sure of how far we would be from the beach because I hate walking back so long after being in the sun all day. This place was perfect. The pools, sauna, tennis court, swings, hot tubs and indoor pool were great. The room is a not out dated but did not take away from our experience. We didn’t stay in the room much at all.
Leneisha, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you had a wonderful vacation! We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon.

Location is great: away from overcrowded streets and beaches. Condo needs darkening shades in bedroom and could use a recliner. Overall a nice little condo that’s very close to beach.

Needs updates. Don’t stay here if you’re looking to relax. Lots of construction going on and pools, hot tubs and saunas are closed!

Such a nice little condo on the beach and everything you need to go have fun is in your condo and it was just amazing location everybody there was amazing I would definitely recommend it to everyone...

The plantation is my favorite place to stay! Friendly staff. Everything is easily accessible. The Sassy Bass restaurant is amazing! 6 swimming pools with 2 being indoors was wonderful.
The only complaints I have are 1) the hot tub could have been cleaner and 2) the floor in our room had not been mopped. But we will definitely stay at the plantation again!
