Situated directly on the beachfront and overlooking an area of sandy white beach the length of three-plus football fields, San Carlos in Gulf Shores is one of the most popular condo complexes on the Gulf Coast.
Among the reasons for its popularity is the building's proximity to attractions, restaurants and shops found in the heart of Gulf Shores. The building is just east of the popular Hangout Restaurant, with its fun and games, unpretentious eats and constant flow of live musical performances throughout the year. San Carlos is near the iconic Pink Pony Pub, numerous restaurants like the new Sunliner Diner and Picnic Beach, Waterville USA water park, and Gulf State Park.
Condos at San Carlos offer two and three bedrooms, all of which are welcoming and spacious enough to comfortably accommodate up to eight or even 10 depending on bedding arrangements.
Vacationers who choose San Carlos will be able to enjoy a list of resort-style amenities, such as a sauna, an exercise room with giant picture windows overlooking the Gulf, a zero-entry outdoor pool, and a barbecue area. A boardwalk over the dunes allows quick and easy access to the expansive beachfront. Need space for a meeting or gathering? A conference center is on site.
Once inside your private condo, you'll enjoy your own balcony, a master bath equipped with a jetted tub and separate shower, a fully equipped kitchen and all the conveniences of home!
When you choose San Carlos Condominiums, you'll find yourself surrounded by fun on the property and at nearby restaurants and attractions.

Only stayed a couple nights but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean and the location was wonderful. Very easy check-in and check-out, the carpet was a little old and stained. Overall the condo was a nice place to stay, and the view was amazing.

Condo was perfect. So clean and had everything we needed. Great location. Nice pool area. Short walk from pool to water, which was nice, but since beach area is so narrow, it was very crowded in front of condo. Balcony is huge and deep. This was our second stay at San Carlos.

Loved the condo. Balcony was wonderful . Loved the large elevators. The only thing that could be improved upon is the bed in second bedroom. O k for a child very uncomfortable for 2 adults.
Linda, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed this condo and the balcony. We apologize for any discomfort the bed caused during your stay. While it is in good working order, each guest has their own unique preferences. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon.
Property location was perfect! Walking distance to restaurants and shops (Hangout, Pink Pony, Sea n Suds, Surf Style, Souvenir City, and many more). Property located on the 8th floor had perfect views and high enough to see down the beach. Also being on the 8th floor the elevator was a short ride. Having 3 elevators was a plus, never had to wait but a few seconds for one to arrive. Our only thought about the property was that it needed a little repair work. The carpet in master bathroom was stained with something (bleach?) and should be removed as a major eye sore when you walk in, the tile was cracked in several places throughout the property, and could use some touch up work on the painting. The TV in the guest bedroom was very outdated as it had a small screen, only complaint by the kids at night time. None of these things hindered our vacation, just cosmetic. Would we stay here again, yes. Would love to see a little maintenance to bring things up to par. Overall enjoyed our stay!

I love staying with Meyer. We have returned 3 years and will continue to do so. The ever present security is wonderful and makes our family feel so safe. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
We have a son in a wheelchair may add a beach wheelchair to the package. Instead we had to pay $80 a day for it. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
