1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We were very disappointed in the condo for the money we spent. We stayed in room 406 and arrived to find the room very outdated. The bedroom was right at the front door and was by the elevator so it was very noisy. The bedroom was very dark with only two small lamps for light and the inside of the... More

We recently stayed in 204 and 205. Very clean rooms with great views of the gulf! The staff was friendly amd very helpful in keeping us stocked with towels. Easy check in. So convenient to everything in Gulf Shores. We will definitely stay here again!

This is the best place to stay! Right on the beach! Staff are friendly & helpful. Rooms are clean & nicely decorated & you have everything you need if you choose to stay in & cook. Definitely the best price if you are looking to stay right on the beach.

View was terrific! Will definitely be staying here again. The staff was friendly and our check in and check out was... More

We rented condo IWE-705 for five nights recently. The price was good & it was directly on the ocean. I was terribly disappointed when I saw the unit. It is SO outdated. The dishwasher did not work, the disposal was being replaced as we checked-in, we were directly across from the two elevators so the noise was awful! The bathroom... More

I was happy we selected room 206. The furnishings were very nice and comfortable for a one bedroom. Since there was no door on the bedroom, there was very little privacy if more than one couple is staying there. I must say the kitchen is more than adequately furnished with everything you could need to prepare a meal. The only... More

My family and I have stayed at this complex 6 times in the last 2 years. The location is fantastic. You walk out the back door and you sink your toes into soft, warm, white sand, and about 20 steps takes you to the amazing blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The complex itself is a bit dated, all...

This was a very nice condo. It was just as pictured and had great Wi-Fi. Checking in and out was easy. Security was on site 24/7. Beds were comfortable and kitchen well stocked. Pool was heated and open until 11pm,

Our baseball team travelled to Gulf Shores on July 14-20th for a baseball tournament. Half of us stayed in the East building, half of us stayed in the West building. Our condo, 271-IWW, is reviewed specifically under Island Winds West, however, the main office for both buildings is in Island Winds East, so checking in, out, and any issues you... More

The staff was very courteous and helpful. Our room was great with a wonderful view. Beach is gorgeous and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend. We were in town for my son's wedding on the beach and the wedding site was 5 minutes away. Family had a blast!
