The area was clean & well kept. Peaceful relaxing
Pam B. Mar 2022
Loved the ocean view and large deck. The kitchen had most of what I needed and condo was cheerful and nicely decorated.

They must replace the beds! Master bed sinks to middle and squeaks like crazy - I spent my $3000 vacation on the couch! Plus an apartment sized fridge. Ugh! Other than that it’s exactly like the pictures. Beautiful beach and pools and the unit was nice. Great sized deck too. Easy access to resort and unit. Very enjoyable.
Manager response:
Hello Maria, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and have sent your observations to the local management for review. We hope to host you again soon!

This home is older but very well appointed and very, very comfortable. The view of the beach is amazing and the unit was neat and tidy on arrival. There were also small shampoos and conditioners, items to wash dishes with and a little bit of laundry powder to get started. Beds are Linens and towels were nice and clean. Again the view if the beach is terrific and it is a short walk to the beachfront - as represented! The water and sand on this beach are great!! There are outdoor pools and access to an indoor pool but we did not use any of that. There is parasailing, banana boats and jet skis for rides/ rent if you like that. There are beach seats and umbrellas for rent on the beach. The property has outdoor grills and tennis courts also. We stuck to the beach. If you have not been to this part of the gulf shores being your groceries with you as the larger groceries are about 20 minutes away. This delivered on every aspect of our stay and we enjoyed it tremendously. This unit had plenty of good seating on the balcony and a great table. The owners have some beach items for use but we did not use these. To the owners: thanks for sharing your lovely place with us! We had a great time and would not hesitate to book with you again!

This unit need some work. The ceiling has issues with a lot of discolorations,and has an area where the paint is peeling off in big sections. The centrally located smoke detector had the battery compartment open and battery missing. Some pots and pans were dirty, frying pan was full of something burnt onto it. The hydraulic door closer thing on the back of the front door is leaking all down the back of the door.
The complex is nice, has several pools and a nice access to the beach. There is a restraint in the end of the building by the beach access. We did not try it but it looked to stay fairly busy. I would stay at this complex again but not in this unit.

I honestly should rate this condo lower, but it had a lot of great perks. Great location to everything, well stocked with necessities, easy parking, and beautiful view. The one thing it was lacking? Cleanliness. I didnt rate it lower because I understand this isn't 100% the owners fault. They depend on their cleaning company to make sure the condo is ready. Especially in the middle of the covid pandemic, I would think they would be even more diligent. We had a box and wrappers under the bed and behind the nightstand. The sheets on the pull out bed were never cleaned. There were crumbs all over it. My kids just slept on the couch the entire week. There was residue and gunk on the big closet mirror and in all the kitchen cupboards. When we walked in, it had a very musty smell and the fridge was warm, which tells me it wasn't opened up in time before we got there. Traveling 16 to 20 hours In a car with 4 kids is tough.. you don't want to come to a place that you spent hundreds of dollars on and clean it or ot be able to use things. This is a great condo and resort, I just hope they get a better maid service. We did get engaged while we were there after 8 1/2 years together and I would have loved nothing more than to come back for our wedding/honeymoon, but would have to choose another condo if these things weren't taken care of. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Congratulations on your engagement! We are so thrilled to have been able to be a part of such a wonderful moment and sincerely apologize it was marred in any way by a lack of cleanliness. We have very high cleaning standards and will be sure to get this addressed with our cleaning team. Thank you for staying with us, and we hope to see you again!

We loved the laid back environment. Sassy Bass was an amazing place to eat. Only problem we had was day one trying to get into our condo. We could not get into our condo & could not reach ANYONE from the numbers I had to find out what was wrong. The security guards were the only people anywhere and they had no idea who to even call. Just so happen a lady with a clipboard was coming out of one of the other buildings and we asked her for help. She worked for Vacasa and helped us. Turns out we were sent the wrong door code! I sent an email but haven’t gotten a reply. But other than that everything was perfect.
Manager response:
Hi, Leanne! We sincerely apologize for the lock-out you experienced and are sorry our delayed communications due to the busy summer season caused you any duress. We will always get back to our guests as soon as possible. Thank you!

Overall the condo was nice, right on the beach and we enjoyed the pool area. Our main complaint would be that the beds were very uncomfortable to sleep on.

Sunsets and wind off the gulf are two of the greatest qualities of this condo.
Jennifer B. Jun 2020
Pros: Beachy decor; everything (almost) you need in the kitchen plus some - tons of dishes, glasses, cookware, silverware, etc.; everything you need for the beach
Leaving this info to hopefully help someone else pack less:
Beach accessories galore - sand toys/shovels/buckets, boogie boards, noodles, 4 beach chairs, beach umbrella, etc. PLUS the front bedroom closet had a hand air pump and electric air pump to blow up rafts.
Fans - small fan in master, large fan in 2nd bedroom
Iron/ironing board, blow dryers, air mattress, lots of extra pillows, extra blankets, vacuum
LOVED having the washer/dryer in unit...washed clothes before we left and re-packed so that we didn't have to bring sand/dirty clothes home with us.
Simple check-in/check-out (Just a door code emailed)

Cons (Just a couple):
1. New dishwasher needs to be "set" into the cabinet. It was irritating to load the dishwasher and feel like it was going to fall out.
2. The one thing we didn't have for the kitchen was oven mitts. I looked everywhere and never found any. We had to use doubled up beach towels to get things out of the oven without burning ourselves.
3. I will agree with others in saying the mattress was very uncomfortable. It almost felt like laying on the beach with lumpy sand underneath. However, we were usually so tired that we didn't notice too much.
Overall, this was a great place to stay, and we would stay again. I think a small "flyer" would be beneficial to give some tips on the complex (like the fact that you go to the small building where you enter to get supplies for basketball, shuffleboard, and tennis) and where to find some of the items available in the unit (like the things located in the front closet).

My only other tip would be to bring a wagon to haul everything to the beach. It's quite a walk, and having one would definitely be helpful!
Manager response:
Hi, Jennifer! We appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your stay and are glad to see you enjoyed your time here. The dishwasher has been secured by maintenance, and we will make sure oven mitts are provided. Thank you!

This was a very nice unit with good ocean views
Mary T. Oct 2019
We rented the condo for a few days during 2019 Fall break. The condo was clean and the living area furniture was nice. The views of the ocean were good. However, the beds in both bedroom were not comfortable. The refrigerator top shelf was missing and the microwave frame was cracked, but it was still operational. The dryer in the unit took forever to dry clothes. When I booked the unit I thought it was in Gulf Shores, but it is actually in Fort Morgan. This was not an issue, but I wish I had known and I would have bought my groceries on the way in. I would definitely book a condo at Plantation Palms again, as I loved the facilities, but probably not this one unless the issues are fixed.

We had a wonderful stay at Plantation Palms. Its located very close to the beach and within a few minutes drive of Gulf Shores. The condo was very nice and had a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. There were two large pools right in front of our condo to swim in. One was a salt water pool. The condo was clean and kitchen was fully stocked. There is a restaurant at the resort as well. We would stay at this place again. Only thing the condo needs is a new washer and dryer and new carpeting/tile flooring in the bedrooms.
Kimberly P. Aug 2019
We had a lovely time in this beautiful condo!! We normally stay next door at Plantation West but our condo was not available so we took a chance and tried VRBO. Although it was quite a bit more expensive (about $800 more), we really enjoyed it. We especially loved the larger balcony directly facing the ocean! Only recommendation I have for the owner is you need new mattresses in both bedrooms. Wow! They were extremely uncomfortable! The spare room mattress was even visibly in bad shape with a large bump.

We would rent again but only if our normal condo is not available. We prefer the other condo because it offers 3 queen beds (preferred over the pullout sofa) (it has a loft with the 3rd bed) and it is $800 cheaper and a little closer walk to the beach. (Oh! and comfortable beds...lol)

Thank you for sharing your beautiful place! We have been visiting this beach heaven for 17 years and love it!!
Elizabeth S. Jul 2019
We had a blast on our vacation, and this space was perfect for our family of 6. They had all the amenities we needed to have a great beach vacation, including sand toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. Sitting on the balcony listening to the waves was my favorite! The property has a lot of amenities and we were thankful for 2 pools since the ocean was off limits due to strong rip tides. Great vacation and would definitely rent again!
