We had a great experience, condo was very clean and comfortable. Kids had a blast in the pools and at the beach. Will definitely be back again!
Donna A. Jul 2022
The beds are old, flat and noisy. Please bring your own paper and soap supplies for kitchen, laundry and bath. Bring your own kitchen linens. Drains in bathrooms drain slow. You will be standing in grey water for your shower. Dryer was not drying -noted on first day and ticket was submitted. Fixed 2 days later. A/C was working in our unit.
Manager response:
Thank you Donna for your review. We are very sorry about the issues with the drains and dryer. We hope that the refund that you were given has helped with some resolution of the issues you experienced during your stay. The issues with the drains and dryer have since been fixed. We appreciate our guest's preferences as a means to improve and have shared your feedback to our local team. We hope to host you again soon and better impress you!

this was a perfect place to get away and I would stay again

The condo itself was gorgeous, it was well stocked with everything you need for a stay with amazing views. The kitchen sink collapsed during our stay but did have an immediate response. That was certainly a bummer but we understand things happen beyond our control sometimes and did not ruin our vacation by any means. My only complaint is the lack of full disclosure on the closure of the largest pool on the property with the lazy river. I chose this property specifically for that pool. Upon booking it ONLY said the crosswalk and pool house was to be closed for repairs. There was no mention of that pool also being closed. This was very disappointing to me and especially so to my two children who looked at pictures of that pool several times in excitement to go in it before we arrived. The other two pools were still fun but if I had known I would have probably chosen the other property we were considering. Overall, we definitely enjoyed our stay and the condo. The lack of disclosure on the pool is my only issue.

One of (if not the) cleanest, nicest places we've stayed. Everything was perfect upon arrival and the unit had everything we needed. The view from the balcony is awesome, and the balcony is huge. A bonus was having balcony access from the master, too! Will definitely book again!
Judith S. Mar 2022
We had a last minute booking due to a family emergency and we loved the room. The location was very nice and the condo had all the amenities we needed.
Helen C. Jan 2022
The cleanliness of the condo!
Misty S. Jul 2021
This condo was very clean and nice. You can still see the beach even though it is across the street. The skywalk provides you direct beach access with ease. Everything was lovely. We will be staying again.
Skylar W. Jun 2021
Overall a great stay. Clean condo. Exactly as pictured. The only suggestion i would have is for a new rug in the living area. Definitely overdue. Overall, a great experience. Easy check-in. I would stay here again!
Manager response:
Skylar, Thank you for staying with us, and thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us.

We hope you’ll give us another chance to host your next stay. Thank you!
ERICA P. Jun 2021
This was more than we expected! Very clean! (And I am very picky about cleaning crews of hotels/rentals) It is a perfect location for getting to the beach or pools. My kids loved it as well! One thing to keep in mind is that this unit is in front of the elevators. So the second bedroom window is right there. My daughter complained it would get a little noisy when people were coming and going late at night.
Kim O. May 2021
Condo was nice itself but elevators were horrible.
Michael C. Apr 2021
Crystal Towers is a great pace to stay. Centrally located and close to everything. Good accommodations.
Theresa P. Apr 2021
Choice of 3 elevators brings you to this beautifully decorated condo w/a FULL kitchen & bath amenities. Included extra pillows/blanket, iron/board, vacuum, box fan, washed/dryer, & dishwasher. Ample closet & pantry storage. Front bedroom has 2 twin beds & a bath. Water gets hot quickly. Master has comfy soft/medium firmness king bed. Sleeps 4 (or a 5th on the leather sofa, but I don’t know if it pulls into a bed). Living room & bedrooms have TV’s. Living & master have balcony doors leading to sizeable patio. Ceiling fans and great A/C. The entire premise, from parking lot, elevators, condo, sauna, multiple pools, and catwalk are impeccably clean.
Just bring your food, k-cups, & laundry detergent, & beach supplies. There’s a little grocery store just up the road. No need for Walmart, but that’s close, too. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Next time we’ll bring the kids. 🥳
Stephen L. Apr 2021
This is our 7th time renting at Crystal Towers and this unit is by far the best one yet. Of course all of them have been great but Vacasa made sure this one was crystal clean and was at the unit when we arrived to make sure all the TVs worked and everything was in good order. We will definitely rent through them again and hopefully get this same unit.

The condo is in a perfect location to see what Gulf Shores has to offer! The home is gorgeous and had everything we needed for our stay. The view from the balcony was amazing and we saw dolphins from the balcony each morning. My family and I are already looking at our next stay here!
Sabrina s. Jul 2020
decorated so cute. We had a great time. We will definitely be back next year it was our first time in this condo.
Joshua B. Jul 2020
The condo was very nice and clean. The view was incredible. Everything you could need was in the condo. Would definitely stay again.
Melissa B. Jul 2020
Good location, although there were not restaurants or shopping walking distance. I would have rated it 5 stars if the mattresses were more comfortable. Otherwise, it was perfect!
Angel H. Jun 2020
Our family loved the condo. It was perfect for us and was beautifully decorated and clean.
Jennifer A. Jun 2020
We absolutely LOVED the condo! It was perfect for the 4 of us. Decorated so cute, fully equipped with all we needed. All we had to do was add food to the fridge and we were set. The outdoor pool area was great and is much bigger then any other pools we saw. The big pool is just a few steps from the beach, which was great! It made going between the pool and the beach very easy! We would definitely stay here again.
Amanda M. Jun 2020
The condo was very nice and clean! We loved our stay and would book this again. The pool was great and the walk to the beach was an easy one.
Dusty A. Jun 2020
We stayed at crystal towers 1004 it was absolutely amazing great customer service, amazing views, and the room was really nice and up to date we will definitely be coming back
Tami G. May 2020
I loved the view and amenities. Like all the different pools you had room to choose to distance.
Kristi B. May 2020
Property is lovely!! Rooms was exceptional! Easy access to beach. Always saw someone working hard to keep the property clean.
Jim C. Oct 2019
Accommodations and golf were both great. It would be a 10 but had a half day of rain ;)
Brandon M. Jul 2019
The elevators where soooooo slow.
Jonathan H. May 2019
Great room and location.
Andrew S. Apr 2019
Friendly, clear communication with rental company
Barbara B. Aug 2018
All bed pillows were too firm not allowing comfort of head or neck not allowing for a good night's sleep. The standard pillows were a bit better than the queen/king size. The guest bedroom window was in front of the elevator security lights and I was unable to block the brightness due to no curtain to pull in front of the blinds. This room was continually light which made sleeping almost impossible. The master bedroom had a curtain to block out light.
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.
