We were extremely impressed from the moment we arrived. The condo was very clean, had a wonderful ocean view, and was very quiet and private. The fact that you could walk out the back side of the property right onto the beach was amazing. The pool and hot tub were great and parking was abundant. It was just a short drive or walk to restaurants and shopping and everyone we encountered were friendly and courteous. Overall our trip was all we expected and more and we will definitely stay again at Chrystal Shores.

Living room seating is not geared for elderly "snow birds". The king bed mattress is lacking support in the two sleep portions. The location of the unit to the elevator is a definite plus. Snack bar chairs are almost unusable but dining room table and chairs
make dining a great experience. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. Balcony is awesome to view beach, dolphins, sunrises, sunsets and surf fishermen. We probably wouldn't stay again unless items mentioned were improved. We would rely on ALVR mgmt team to provide verification of changes.

This was our first time renting a condo and overall we were pleased with this one. It was just about the right size for 2 couples.
That said, there were a couple of negatives, we thought:
1.) The beds need to be updated so that guests can enjoy a good nights sleep. These were old and saggy.
2.) The carpets in the bedrooms were on the dingy side, and need to be replaced or cleaned.
The MAJOR negative was when a man entered with his key to hand out turtle flyers. One of our party was alone and sleeping at the time. Why not do this during the cleaning time when the condo is empty?? This unnerved us all for the rest of the vacation. For this reason, we will not return to this building.

Chrystal Shores 804 is a beautiful condo with awesome views. My husband and I were here for a little time together and a break from being full time caregivers for a family member. It made our time perfect and fully able to relax. Hope to stay here again soon. The only trouble we had was the door would not unlock and the lock had to be replaced and we were only given one key so my credit card was charged for the additional key that we never received.

What a restful place. Thank you for providing a clean,comfortable unit - just like the photos show.
The view from the 8th floor is fantastic and the sounds of the ocean, beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
Extremely pleased and have reserved for 2017.
Despite T.S. Cindy, tornado warnings and flash floods; we had a great stay in Crystal Shores 804 and Gulf Shores. The unit was clean and very nice. The main sliding door was hard to get locked & sometimes we just could not lock it! Only other issue was, when the weather finally cleared up some, the maintenance people shut down the outside pool and hot tub for several hours to clean it; very poor timing. We could not get in the ocean and the sun was finally shining, and no outdoor pool or hot tub to use. 804 was a nice unit and we would stay there again.
Mattress was worn out and needs to be replaced. The bedding and towels were very nice. Microwave worked but was nasty looking on the inside. The condo needs a good cleaning. Doors, ceiling fans, stove top, top of refrigerator all dirty. Looks like they only do quick surface clean. Only dust around things. Dirty towel hanging on back of bathroom door when we arrived.
Everything was perfect! Unit in good and clean condition just as pictured. We had 2 adults and 4 teenagers and never felt cramped. Plenty of seating space and table space. Also appreciated seating for. 6 on large deck facing beach. Building security was helpful. Good location with easy access to stores, place to run. A/C worked great. Plenty of towels.
When we arrived we were more then surprised with the size of the unit as well as the greatest view ever.We highly suggest this place and we will return again we give this place as well as dealing with ALBVR five stars great communication all the way from start to end.
The condo was very comfortable. Great view of the ocean from the living room and master. The only downside was the close proximity to the elevator. The foot traffic wasn't bad for us, but it could be in peak months.
