Our overall experience with this condo was not very good. When we got there at 3:15pm, the cleaning person was still in the room cleaning with her 3 children. We waited for almost an hour in the lobby for her to be done. When we got to get in the room, the floor was covered in sand, we were left with no toilet paper, paper towels, or garbage bags. Luckily, I had brought some from home. I realize they aren't suppose to supply a lot, but I am assuming we should have had at least a starter set. The rugs in the bathroom were soaking wet, some of the remotes were missing batteries, and the condo itself is lacking in the pot & pan selection. It was very difficult to cook a meal with one pot. On Sunday morning as we were packing up, the cleaning person just let herself in without knocking at 8:30am. We stayed in Crystal Towers last summer and had a great experience. This summer was very disappointing. I would not stay in this condo again.

OUR FIRST DAY - 1. When we arrived someone had left urine in the master bathroom along with pee all over the seat 2. The towel rack in the master bathroom was RIPPED off the wall 3. The floors were absolutely FILTHY! 4. The foot guard on the bottom of the front door was scrapping the tile - all of these problems we called about immediately. They sent a general maintenance guy (very nice man) he fixed the door and towel rack. The receptionist said they'd send a cleaning crew back out but no one has come yet and we're 48 Hrs into our original complaint. DAY TWO - 1. We found DIRT in the master bed sheets, and other stains. 2. After dumping dirty ice from the freezer on day one, we find out it STILL isn't making ANY ICE! ON DAY THREE - 1. I take my infant for a walk on the beach this morning and come to find out the gate code I was given WAS INCORRECT!!! I stood out in the sun with him for 20 Min. before someone came to the gate to get me in & informed me of the correct gate code! Seriously you rent the facility but don't even know the correct code? 2. Our fridge stops working overnight, so $200 worth of groceries are RUINED! They said they'd compensate $100 because of all the 'issues' I'm sorry $100? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! We've called this company SEVERAL times and still NO call from a manager besides the one earlier this morning who might I add HUNG UP ON MY HUSBAND! ALBVR brought a 'new' fridge (looked like it'd seen MUCH better days and smelled of mildew and was dirty - ANYWAYS had the thing 1 day and took FOREVER to cool down for our now second batch of ruined groceries. Of course the ice machine STILL didn't work and the fridge leaked water. We called to report it and yet again took another 24hrs + to get a return call!

We are frequent visitors to Gulf Shores but this was our first experience with Crystal Tower. We stayed in the Unit 903 and if you care about views I would not recommend having a lower floor. The condo is spacious and modern, furniture were good, comfortable. Biggest issues were cleanness of the condo, in fact I took several pictures of dirty ceiling fans, dirty coffee table, dirty glasses and dishes, disgustingly dirty knifes. Ice maker in the refrigerator did not work. Also a few "start up" items were missing. I understand and read directions and realize that I have to bring my own supplies but there was not a single coffee filter or information what type of coffee maker is available, hence no way to bring your own filters. I do not like mornings without cup of coffee...Also no dish detergent (although according to the condo instructions it should be there). Overall, nice building good location however the unit below the expectations.

We found the unit clean and beautiful. We will definitely use your company again for our next vacation there we had a lovely time. The only thing the ice maker made a funny sound at times but was no problem lol. Thank you for everything . See ya next year.

We loved our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was great was well. The pool areas were clean and great to have. The view from our room was great as well. I loved that it had a washer and dryer in the room. The room also had everything we needed for our stay.

903 is a great condo. It is very clean, the furnishings are great, and it was very comfortable. We all very much enjoyed our stay there, and are already planning our return trip next year.

we were in the area for the little league world series but we were so close to the beach my rental was a great location as I could see both pools and the beach from the patio which was great since the kids wanted to swim a lot more than I did.

We love staying at Crystal Tower because of the amenities. Last year was our first time there and we really loved the beach.
As far as the condo, you really need to work on cleaning and maintaining it a lot better. The walls were scratched up ( little paint would help) The floors are so dirty, the grout is disgusting. The wood trim around the floor needs a good paint job. These condos could be nice if they were maintained properly. When we got there the toilets wouldn't flush properly. There was not enough hot water for 2 people much less for 4 people to shower. Toward the end of our time the dishwasher quit working and overflowed, the kitchen sink backed up and the garbage disposal broke. Overall cleaning and maintenance needs a lot of improvement.

Everything was as described!! Loved the condo!

We very much enjoyed out stay at your condo. This is the first time we have stayed in a condo with an activity room.
Sandra M.on 08/29/2014
The stay was nice however there are a few things that could be improved. Parts of the floor in our unit was bubbling up and we tripped a couple of times. The floors in the master and living room had sand on them and the bigges issue we had was the couch was so uncomfortable. We visited both outdoor pools and the south outdoor pool was dirty. Most people were at the end of the pool nearest the beach so we ended up on the north end of the pool but there was lots of trash bugs and debris in the water. Despite these minor things we def enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to other people. Good price range too!!
My family and I arrived June 16th our Condo was beautiful and clean
I will be booking our next vacation at Crystal Towers again.
The only issues we had was the elevators and the beach water wasn't like it use to be it was dirty looking!
The room we stayed in was clean and well kept. Even with the room across the street it still felt like we were on the beach. I love the walkway to the pool and to the beach. It was so convenient. We will definitely be back next summer for a longer stay.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this condo! The pools were wonderful as well as the hot tub. The room had everything we needed! We were very pleased!
The complex was centrally located. We enjoy the views of the gulf and the 2nd bedroom had views of the laggon. The complex was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful! The elevators were slow and you had to handle them with kid gloves. It was spring break, the staff did a great job keeping the partiers quiet. The beach was crowed which made it difficult to sit and enjoy the water but the beach staff was friendly and accommodating!
Can't say anything bad about the condo. Great View, Location, a very clean and nice condo. It feels larger than the pictures indicate. Had everything we needed to complete our Thanksgiving Dinner. Enjoyed our stay very much. Would definitely stay there again.
Had a wonderful trip. This was a great location, lots of amenities, perfect for a family of 5!
The rental was a good stay in Gulf Shores. The Condo had a nice ocean view and amenities that you would expect from home. The rooms had some use and the elevators for the facility were very time consuming to get back to the destined floor. The owner had great communication on arrival and checkout terms. The pool was nice and well maintained. Good overall stay.
Everything went well. We have stayed in the Crystal Towers many times. Everything worked well in the condo. Some things were not as clean as I prefer.
We had a great time. The condo was very clean and easy to get in/out from. Beach and pool access was also easy and clean. We would definitely stay here again.
Excellent stay and got lucky with the weather. My only complaint was the actual rate was higher than the rate advertised on VRBO.
Enjoyed our condo. Loved location, crosswalk was ideal, the pools were AWESOME, and the beach was right there.
The condo we stayed in was very nice for the most part. There were only a few problems with the unit that stopped me from giving it 5 stars across the board. First, the sheets on the pullout bed in the living were dirty and had obviously not been changed in quite some time. Then the non stick pots that were in the kitchen had all the non stick stuff scratched or flaking off still which made us uncomfortable with using them, we worked around that by opting to bake most of the dinner meals we cooked. And lastly the freezer was not working well at all but we didn't catch that until our last night in the unit when the popsicles we bought for the kids were mostly melted down to slush. Aside from those hiccups, the unit was very nicely decorated, pretty clean and the beds were comfortable.
Loved the pools, hot tubs and beach!!! Even though it is not directly on the beach, it's a great location. Easy check in/out! Only 2 minor complaints...... Could not open sliding door from bedroom to balcony and the couch has seen better days! But.....GREAT view from balcony by going out other door!!!
The location is very close to 59 but it seems like everyone wanted to be on 59. It was very crowded! Our first impression was tainted by the elevators being broken. One or all three were broken constantly the first 3days we were there. We had to haul groceries up the stairs. When they did work, we waited up to 30 mins for one that was available. The unit was disappointing as well. The pictures do not give any indication of how small the unit is. You can barely turn around without closing a door, moving furniture or running into something. It was NOT clean at all. Very dusty, children's feet were black from being barefoot, things left in small places that we didn't have such as Cheerios and band aides. The toilet paper holder came out of the wall the first time I used it, the floor had humps in it where the vinyl was not stuck to the floor and there were no extras of anything (towels, sheets, pillow cases, paper towels, garbage bags, etc.). Overall very disappointed.
Things we enjoyed were the pool, the comfortable beds, the view and the walkway over the street. However, not enough positives to stay here again or recommend to anyone!
