This was a wonderful experience renting & staying in Crystal Tower. Our unit had a good view of the ocean as well as outdoor pool area. The unit was clean & stocked well with towels, starters of paper towels & such. We used the VRBO app to check in, get directions, and receive messages. We had a lock box on... More

We booked this condo not knowing how nice it was. It was very clean, fully stocked and close to everything. The heated indoor pool was great considering it's too cold for the Gulf or the outdoor pools. The grounds are kept clean and the pool and hot tub as well. It was spring break for ALL the college kids but... More

There is not a specific category for convenience stores or quick shop stops. But in this case, this one is associated with/adjacent to Crystal Tower and is highly deserving of mention. While staying on the beach in Gulf Shores on West Beach Blvd, we routinely stopped at the Waves Grocery and Package Store on West Beach Blvd. There we were... More

We enjoyed our week at Crystal Towers. Having an indoor pool for the kids was perfect as it was chilly and rainy most of our stay. The beach was very accessible and we could come warm up in the hot tub when the kids got too cold. The view was amazing, the condo was clean and we had an amazing... More

Access to the beach is the best with its enclosed skywalk, indoor and outdoor pools, everything you would want for a reasonable price, can't wait to get back for another week - we were on the eight floor and the view was ideal

If someone could go in my mind and decorate a condo that was perfect, they did so. It was so great that even my husband that doesn't enjoy the ocean really loved it. Even though it was across the road from the beach they had an air conditioned sky walk that took you to the private beach. There was a... More

Travel tip: a lot (if not all) of these condos are privately owned, read reviews carefully to see which units people stayed in, they are not all identical! This unit (#804) is perfectly located in this complex, high enough to see the Gulf from the balcony & right next to the elevators. It is well maintained, stocked with all the... More

Condo 704 was nice. Only complaint was the sandy floor. Otherwise, nice and clean. Great access to the beach and 3 very nice pools. Elevators were slow, but did not affect our stay. Good location! Will consider staying there again on future trips.

Wonderful place to stay. We will always return to this property and rent from Youngs Suncoast rentals. Great amenities and excellent views. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. The staff at Youngs Suncoast rentals are very helpful and are customer focused. Thanks Youngs Unicast rentals.
