It was a short stay but a god one. The condo was nice and clean. A bottom floor condo works great for us .

Upon entering the condo, the decor is great! Bright and beachy. My 3 young girls (10,8, and 6) enjoyed the bunks in the bedroom. They didn't discover the 3rd trundle bed til our last night. The trundle was very, very dusty as if it hadn't been used in a long time. The girls didn't mind sharing a bunk as the bunks are bigger fulls, & they took turns on who had to share w the 6 yo. They loved the bathroom that adjoined their room. Kitchen is well equipped! Blender, toaster, coffee pot all there. Great skillets and bowls and sharp knives. Fridge was clean and worked well. Dining room and living room also very nice. However, the laundry closet in the dining area smelled terribly of must and mildew when the doors were open. The whole condo smelled of mold and mildew when doing laundry. Upon our arrival, we received a call that the previous renters had reported the washer not working. On our day of arrival, they discovered the washer was not able to be fixed. They ordered a new washer and it was delivered on our second day around 1:00 pm. The new washer works great but it is VERY noisy! Our other complaint is that the slider door in the living room that leads to the patio has a broken locking mechanism. The door sticks. So, even w the bar up on the back of the door (secondary lock), it appeared the door was still locked at the handle/opening side. Apparently, we didn't tug hard enough to get it open. We assumed the broken locking mechanism was preventing it from opening. A call to management, and they had the guy look at it when he delivered the washer. He said it was fine. When we returned from being out and about, we still couldn't get door open. I called management again, and they said nothing was wrong w it. My husband yanked door hard and it finally opened. Secondary complaint about the sliding doors is that you have great patio/pool/beach access, but there is no way to lock condo when exiting through the sliders. Have to exit front and walk around the bdg.

We love this condo. This was our second year staying here. We loved the renovations they made, new couch, chair, and bunk bed. Our kids absolutely loved the bunk beds. We love Gulf Shores Plantation. This was our 5th year staying here and we will definitely be back.

This is an amazing condo! We had our wedding in the beach in front of the condo, and everyone was so helpful! Will definitely come back!
Alicia L.on 06/25/2017
We loved our room. Check in was really easy and the condo was very clean and inviting. We loved being on the ground floor because it was just a short walk to the beach and there were two pools right in front. Gulf shores plantation is great for families.

The property itself was perfect. It was actually pretty quite and simply but stylishly furnished. We have you children so I appreciated that there were not a lot of breakables and that most cords in the common area were out of sight and reach from young hands. We made our reservations and paid for our stay while we were driving down at around 2:30 pm in the afternoon. When we arrived at the unit at 7:10 pm the door was open and the cleaning service was still there. The housekeeper told me I wasn't supposed to be there. I told her that I had already paid to rent the unit. She said that the would not be finished for another 30 minutes so we took the kids to the beach and the pool when we returned the unit was dark and the door was locked. The lock box where the keys were supposed to be it was open and they were missing. We called the after hours emergency number and they said that someone would come out. At 8:30pm someone arrived to check the unit and give us the keys. Please keep in mind that we were standing outside with three cold, wet children 6 and under for over 30 minutes. We were never contacted by the management office and offered any type of compensation. I was quite surprised by this since check in time is listed at 3 pm and we were not able to get into the unit we paid for until after 8 pm. I was also displeased that inside the unit the front door only has the key lock. There is no deadbolt. This is dangerous with young children being able to exit the door easily and anyone that has the key can enter whenever they want. I did not feel secure in the property without some type of dead bolt that could be secured from the inside. We enjoyed the property itself.

Very cute condo, well equipped and nicely decorated! It was clean enough, however there were dead bugs and a lot of grass and sand on the floor, under the furniture and on the rugs. Which in itself is gross, but add the fact we have a toddler who likes to put all things on the floor in his mouth, that's not a good combo! Overall, a great experience and we hope we can stay there again next summer.

Condo was nice but smelled musty. When we opened the closet it smelled very moldy (to the point that we didn't use the washer and dryer while staying there). No visible water leaks but I found black mold behind the toilet in one of the bathrooms. A realtor was given consent to show the property without our knowledge (my cell phone had died and no one left a message on the condo phone/no one came to contact us at our door to get consent) so we came home to three strangers standing in our condo one day...slightly unsettling. The fitted sheet on one of the beds was too small and kept popping off during the night. However, if those things hadn't occurred I would probably stay here again. Fair prices and decent accommodations. Nice beach access and pools.

No complaints, bring extra toilet paper. I couldn't remember where it was explained what the key cards were for but we figured it out. I would recommend changing out one of the beds into a king. Good location near pool and beach.

Arrived to a well kept, secure complex well away from the hustle and bustle of the public beach areas of Gulf Shores. The condo was excellent. Clean and well appointed. The view of the pool, landscaping and gulf from the patio was outstanding. We would stay here again and we plan to. The beach was perfect. Clean sand, great surf for the gulf and the water was very clean. It is some distance to eating and shopping but we liked that aspect.

Property is in a great location. It was clean and spacious. There were a few things broken or inoperable (pocket door to bathroom, outlet in bathroom, internet connection) and unfortunately these were never addressed diring our stay. All in all, we were pleased.
Nice unit. Grab bars in bathroom a plus. Not much closet space and not bathroom vanity for storage of health and beauty items. Lots of dead bugs under beds and furniture. Housekeeping could be more thorough. Light in kitchen needs new ballast or something. Had to turn switch on and off several times to get it to turn on.
We loved staying at this ground level condo! Our group was two adults and four kids, everyone slept comfortably. The condo was well stocked (especially the kitchen), clean and easily accessible. The pool and tennis courts are directly off of the large patio and the front door opens to the parking lot. It was very convenient and we would love to stay here again!
We stayed at this condo last week and although we loved where it was located, we were disappointed with the overall condition of condo. The floor was filthy and our feet were black every night. The first night we got in bed there was sand in the sheets. The last night we were there a cockroach came out of the living room.We packed up a day early and left. Contacted the rental company and just got a sorry. We have been coming to Gulf Shores for 25 years and this is the first :(
It was an amazing spaced out room. We loved the guest bedroom because it had enough room for 5 maybe even 6 to sleep and was not crowded! Everything was beautiful and I loved how easy it was just to run to the pool or beach by being on the first floor. The best room I've stayed at.
We had a lovely time staying at Platation Palms. Unit 6110 was clean and perfectly adequate for our stay. The property has an "old school" feel which I love - not pretentious and very family-oriented. This unit is ground level and is easy to get in and out of. We loved having the patio at ground level. We could watch our kids play tennis from the patio. The pools were fun and the beach was gorgeous. Overall, we had a terrific stay!
The room was nice enough. The floor turned our feet black, so I had to mop. The property was nice. The landscape outside the room was beautiful.
I was a little hesitant to book this property after reading a few other reviews that said the Wi-Fi was spotty and I knew I had some work to finish up that would require it, but that ended up being a non-issue, no problems with the Wi-Fi or the cable. The property was clean, beds were comfortable and the reservation process was super easy. The only problem that we had was that our key for the indoor pool didn't work, but the guard at the security shack let me borrow his, so everything worked out great!
We enjoyed our stay at the Plantation. On the bottom floor this time which was nice with kids just walked out of room to pool. Down side to that was no real privacy if want to sit on the patio. Front door knob is about to fall off and no working can opener. Condo furnishings were dated but ok. Might consider at least a new sofa since the seat in the current one are really worn and not very comfortable. Condo really needs a deep cleaning: base boards, bathroom areas, etc.. Would stay again.
