Everything was good. The only thing is was the leak in the second bedroom. With that being said we enjoyed the stay this was the second time at this property.

Condo pleasant but needs a few upgrades. Mainly living room furniture and appliances. Beautiful view and loved the balcony.
Helen D.on 10/17/2015
There was renovations going on everyday during my stay. Otherwise my family enjoyed out stay.
The full bathrooms are in need on upgrading. I am planning on staying again at this location.

We did not realize prior to our arrival that we had rented a penthouse. It was great and I enjoyed watching from the balcony people on the beach, fish swimming in the water close to the beach, using my camera lenses the boats, etc. far out in the Gulf. We enjoyed the beach, sand, water, etc.

well aside from the fact we were rear-ended in a downpour about 15 minutes from condo, it was nice. but, my friend was sick all week. we left a day early.the Condo was nice, enjoyed watching the waves come in, did see dolphins the first morning.

I highly recommend this property to everyone!

First time to use Bender. It will not be the last. Very nice /professional management. Couldn't ask for anything better. We will use Bender next visit. Really enjoyed Sea and Suds, Oyster House, DeSoto's and Billy's Seafood. Thanks Bender for helping make Gulf Shores 2014 the best .

This was the 2nd consecutive year we stayed at this location and found it to be a great spot for the next 10 years. when i called to book it for July 2016, the price went up $300.00 and when i question it, instead of investigating they laugh it off and told how raising the price was common, plus they stated it should be higher due to location. I immediately called another Rental Agency and rented a House on the Beach. If i am going to continue paying higher prices I will pay extra for a House.

A GREAT WEEK!!Property is beginning to need some very minor repairs but we loved everything about this unit. location, view and the ladies at Bender were all great. I am looking forward to next year we are planning on coming back.

Had a wonderful week. Condo was wonderful, views from the top are beautiful. Does need a new coffee maker and a bigger TV in living room, might help to just put TV on the wall instead of in the big entertainment center that takes up lots of room and limits view of TV.

Beautiful view and we had a wrap around balcony, simply gorgeous! Property is in need of some repair, showers need work, tile floors need a good cleaning and some outdoor furniture needs to be replaced, we were unable to use some out door chairs because they were completely worn out. Should be thrown out before someone gets hurt. Lambert's a great meal, but go hungry! Cactus Cantina Mexican , great food. Can't forget Lulu's. All and all great time. Been coming a long time and will be back! The weather was great.

It was amazing! We've never stayed in a condo before and it turned out to be a great experience. The condo was beautiful and had fantastic views of the ocean. It was quiet and very clean. The staff (pool people and security guards were all we saw) were very courteous and kind. We met another tenant who owns a condo and she was friendly and sweet as well. The price was comparable to a hotel stay, yet the experience was much, much better. Having your own kitchen, washer and dryer and all the amenities was such a blessing! I would highly recommend it. One thing I might suggest is to check the temperature on the water heater. It certainly became hot enough to scald...fine for adults who can react, but worrisome for kids. Other than that (and the loud bathroom vent in the master) it was absolutely perfect.

This unit had the best location of any we have stayed in at Gulf Shores. The view was incredible - overlooking the state park and not having to look at another condo. The bedrooms were good size and each had a door to the balcony. The only negative was that the unit was darker than we would have liked. We were expecting beachy furniture, not heavy dark wood in the living area and a jungle theme in the bedroom.

THE ROYAL PALMS #1403 WAS GREAT....BUT 2 THINGS THEY NEED TO UPDATE....THE BATHROOMS...WERE REALLY SMALL AND KINDA OLD.AND PLUS NO FREE WIFI IN THE ROOM...THEY WERE WANTING TO CHARGE FOR IT. BUT BASICALLY THAT WAS THE ONLY TWO THINGS WRONG...THE VIEW WAS AWESOME!!!
Mike P.on 08/16/2014
Condo has a great view from the balcony. The location is great! But the cleanliness of the unit is terrible! Why we have to pay a cleaning fee is a mystery because there was dust everywhere,the bed covers were dirty,the bathtubs were just nasty and the floors were mopped with a dirty mop and or dirty water. It took two days for the smell to leave the unit.Did I mention the NOISY fans in the nasty bathrooms? It will wake everyone in the condo up if you turn it on! And the wifi did not work correctly so WE had to take time out of our vacation and wait for the cable company to come and install updated equipment. This unit needs a proper cleaning and updated furniture inside and out on the balcony. Cannot say that I will be back to this unit.

We had a wonderful time and loved the view from our condo. I had my granddaughter and her family with me so we were 80 yrs to 12 in age and we all had room an enjoyed the time there.
Condo is great!! We stayed 7 days and loved every minute of it. The wrap around balcony provides amazing views and is a great place to watch the dolphins.
Working with Bender Realty was great! This condo needs updated, appliances, furniture etc. The view from balcony was wonderful, especially to the east.
A great view.. very peaceful. We loved everything about Royal Palms.
This condo is absolutely amazing. The view from the balcony was so great that we would have stayed there the whole vacation. We could even see dolphins from it. We went in August so there were quite a few jelly fish in the water, but it they were easily spotted. The condo is very spacious as well and we felt like we had a lot of privacy being next to the state park. We will definitely be staying here again.
