The weather was prefect , the condo was great as always..... We spent 2 full days at the pier and saw everything imaginable in the waater esp. at night, and the morning we were leaving I actually got to watch the Great Turtle volunteers release baby sea turtles into the gulf . There is no better place than Gulf Shores and The Royal Palms . We'll be back in May :)
The Ladies at Bender Reality are the best we've ever dealt with anywhere .

it was clean and the view was awesome. No hair dryer, but other than that, it was perfect.

The dryer was not working properly. It tore holes in all our clothing. We were unable to use the dryer. Also the bottom bunk bed was broken. My child was unable to use that bed.

We have stayed in this condo three times. Was disappointed that it had not been redecorated yet after being told it would be. The decor needs to be lightened up. Beachy turquoise, greens, and blues would be Nice! Also, needs a screen on the sliding doors. The deck really is the best though.

Condo was clean, decor a little outdated but in good condition. The bathrooms are small but the wrap around corner balcony made up for it all ! Beautiful views!! I was disappointed with the late check in. We arrived around 6:30 and office was closed, there was a mix up with our key and we had to wait 45 minutes in the parking lot for our key to get in the room and because we checked in late we had to return to the real estate office the following day to sign a rental agreement that I had already signed electronically online. It was inconvenient mainly because it was our only full day to enjoy the beach. The ladies in the office were very nice and professional.

My husband and I had an amazing getaway in Gulf Shores! This beachfront penthouse was budget friendly and had breathtaking views. The penthouse was pretty clean in all, although a good carpet cleaning in the bedroom would not hurt. The bedroom was a bit crowded with the decor, but if you don't mind side stepping between the bed and armoire or climbing across the bed to get to the other side, you'll be fine. The livingroom/dining/kitchen wall color is a bit darker than my taste for beach feel, but in all we weren't really there to stay cooped up in the condo so I can't complain. We arrived October 30th and departed November 2 and had 2 days of good weather before storms moved in on our final day.. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone that wants to fall in love with the beach life ? Thank you for a very memorable honeymoon/anniversary getaway.

Loved the balcony! The condo decor needs to be "lightened up" (colors are rather dark and heavy). It wasn't as clean as I would have liked. I will plan to stay here again just for the view.

My husband and I came to Gulf Shores to celebrate my 50 th Birthday. We had a terrific time. We stayed at the Royal Palm on the 14th floor. We were able to watch and experience a lot of marine life. We actually got to watch sea turtles being born. Bender Realty were a joy to work with booking our condo and we plan on using them the next time.

This was my second stay at the Royal Palms, and I was lucky enough to get the west penthouse. We were on the 6th floor last year. The view from the penthouse unit is spectacular. The unit was clean. If I were making suggestions to the owners, I would update the decor a little to be more " that I mean lighter colors for the walls and furnishings, and perhaps upgrade the outdoor patio furniture to a padded love seat and chairs. Minor things though, as it looks fine. Need a bit bigger TV in the living area, and a DVD player would be nice. The great thing about Royal Palms is being next to the State Park makes it less crowded on the beach. Pool was fine, as was the hot tub. Convenient to all good places to eat. I will be back!! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is the decor and a very minor wastebaskets in the bathrooms, but no big deal.

Royal Palms 1407 was just stunning. The inside was beautiful just as the pictures showed. Well stocked kitchen if you plan on cooking (I would bring a good knife). The view from the wrap around balcony is stunning. Last condo in Gulf Shores. State Pier is just a short walk. Found lots of shells on our daily walks. Lists as a 6 person condo-3 or 4 would fit comfortably. Bender staff is always so sweet! They are the reason we rented again this year from Bender Realty. Only trouble we had was the front door was hard to lock/unlock, but that was just us not being used to that type lock. You can't go wrong with this condo and Bender Realty.

We love Gulf Shores, and the penthouse at Royal Palms was fantastic! We loved the extra large deck. Saw dolphins several times, and the weather was perfect!

Nice clean condo. Great view. Well stocked kitchen. Friendly staff. Loved the sauna and hot tub. Loved the large deck. Plenty room to sun or just relax if you didn't want to go down to the beach.

This was the ultimate condo for a awesome view! If view is what your after, rent this one. A tad bit small but over all awesome!



on 09/23/2017

The patio is great - the location of the condo is great. Overall a pleasant stay, except for the quality of the furnishings and decor in the unit itself. Bed uncomfortable, seating in living room worn and / or uncomfortable. Unit needs to be painted and updated overall - paying for a premium unit, and it is not premium. The refrigerator works, but it is extremely loud and unpleasant - literally have to turn up TV when the fridge is running. Overall, if you plan to spend much time in the unit, this isn't the best place, but if updated / freshened up then it would be great!



on 03/01/2017

The view was great. Seeing the BLUE ANGELS fly
bye the first day was a great start.
It was very breezy on the balcony.
The property was clean, a little small.



on 01/01/2017

except for the loud refrigerator and stormy
weather when I arrived every thing was fine.



on 09/08/2016

Nice condo with large balcony. Mattress was a little too hard,but other than that everything was good.



on 06/02/2016

What a great condo and great location. Right next to the State Park Pier and no crowds on the beach. The balcony is large with both shaded and sunny areas. Great for several couples to stay and gather at night for visiting or entertaining.
Condo has everything you could need. The Lazy Boy Sofa bed was so comfortable.
Will definitely be back !!!!!



on 10/03/2015

The unit's view is AMAZING!! That's what made us book this particular unit. The huge balcony is a major plus. The unit is a little outdate but not a big deal to us since we were there to spend time on the beach. It had basic kitchen appliances. Clean. Our 5 year old loved the indoor pool! Great experience with Bender Realty.



on 05/23/2015

Internet never worked. Walls and doors were dirty. Condo has a beautiful view but no other advantages of being a pent house. Condo was very out dated. Location was good.



on 04/04/2015

Great location - near all the restaurants and shopping.. Awesome rooftop deck with great view.



on 08/23/2014

Our first time in Gulf Shores. Fell in love with the area. The condo looked just like it did on line. I love the fact when you book the condo, you get to see the actual unit you will stay in. Bender Realty was wonderful to work with. We will be coming back to Gulf Shores and will be contacting Bender Realty to book our unit.
