We have used our timeshare to stay in a lot of places the past few years, this is not a five star resort but it is clean and comfortable. We spent Christmas here and it was nice to be at the beach for Christmas. We didn't use the pool or hot tub but people were using them and having a... More

We booked a 1 bedroom through RCI and couldn't be happier. Room is very clean with plenty of space for our family of 5. 2 bedrooms would be good, but we fit just fine. Room has everything we need and it is super close to the beach! Right across the street is a yummy beach restaurant, you can walk to... More

Stayed here through our timeshare, and it was just not up to par. Room was clean, everything worked ok except air conditioning was old and we were hot or freezing because of how the thermostat worked. Office closed on Thur and Sun, open 10-4 other days except Sat when it was open 10-6. If staying a week, be sure to... More

Paradise Isle is one of the older resorts in Gulf Shores and definitely has its quirks. You can feel a bit of shaking when you're lying in bed and someone goes up or down the stairs, and the units are a bit weathered under the brightly colored paint. If you're looking for a "happening" place, this is not it. Even... More

We waited a bit to late to try to plan this years vacation so it left us with very few choices in an accceptable price range for a place to stay. We were not expecting much because of the reviews we had read but were pleasantly suprrised when we found that it was not only clean and comfortable but as... More

The property is old and unit we stayed in had quite a few issues. The pool looks dingey and old. The condo we rented had a new keypad installed for the lock on the door, didn't work properly-had to leave our door unlocked when we were not inside the unit because the keypad wouldn't work to lock the door. The... More

First i was impressed that the staff called prior to our arrival to ensure that if we were going to be a late check in that we would get our room key. Was mailed info on the resort prior to arrival. Upon arrival office staff was very friendly. Check in was fast and without problems. Other reviews state that rooms... More

This is an old and tired facility. Upon ck-in (folks were nice however) we found dead cockroaches. The beds sounded like they were filled with plastic bags. Freezer didn't work, and fridge not so well either. Hot tub on/off button malfunctioned. Much deferred painting around property.

We did a 'fly by your pants type vacation" we walked in the office to see if they had anything for rent and they did. Which at first made me nervous since everything else was booked. But our 1 bedroom condo was great. It did have a pull out sofa bed for our daughter. Most of the units have everything... More

To be honest, when we first walked into our 2 bedroom condo, we were disappointed. You can tell this resort has been thru some tough times with hurricanes and lots of rain damage. The ceilings were stained and it smelled musty. After one night, we were pleasantly surprised at how comfy and quiet it was there. Even though it's not... More
