Great view, location, and amenities. However, little things such as dead batteries in remotes, broken knob on washer could have been tended to before we arrived. Also, the electronics seemed a tad dated and the Wi-Fi was spotty and slow at times, but who cares if you are always on the beach? The staff from Laura's was always pleasant, prompt,... More

I highly recommend this place!!! Only down side is check out is 10 am, you can call the day of check out to see if you... More

Access to beach via covered bridge without crossing the street. Indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, gym, sauna. The "lazy river" is really just a section of the pool with a tiny island in the middle. There is a pizza restaurant next door; that is the only shop within reasonable walking distance.

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
