Unit 708 was our unit and it was great. We've stayed other places but everyone seemed to like this one better. Location was great, close to everything. Brett/Robinson realty was wonderful, we will be using them from now on.

The location of the Royal Palms was PERFECT. You can walk to many places including The Hangout, Souvenir City and The Gulf State Park Pier. The beach is VERY well maintained! Every am they put up the umbrellas and chairs and rake the beach. The pool area was very clean, indoor and outdoor, as well as hot tub. Sea shells... More

I was so disappointed with our experience at Royal Palms, condo unit 807. After reading great online reviews I booked the condo. I expected a clean, nice condo for the amount of money that was charged. Instead, I got a run-down, smelly, dirty condo that wasn't much better than a Motel 6. Anyone reading this, please save your money &... More

My wife and I visited Memorial Day weekend and had unit 1105... Pros-GREAT location! End of the Gulf Shores beach near fishing pier. Easy to get to Gulf Shores eateries and an easy drive to Orange Beach. There is a shortcut to get from the airport to the condo without having to go through town. Great views-nuff said! This unit...

My wife and I have never been to Gulf Shores and really did not know what to expect. We have been to Panama City Beach several times and wanted to try somewhere different on the Gulf. The room we had was two bedroom and two baths and was perfect for our romantic valentines day getaway. The view was great and... More

Very nice condo right on the beach!! Great views of the state park pier and gulf. When we planned the trip we thought the water would be see through emerald green but is is more blue and you can't see the bottom. That is ok we drove down to Destin for the day and got our feel for see through... More

We just returned from a 7 day stay at Royal Palms 403. We had 4 adults & 2 kids. Beautiful view from room. Beach was not crowded & location was awesome! Absolutely a fantastic vacation!!

Stayed here several summers with my family when I was growing up. Good times, SUPER fun! I would definitely recommend one of the Phoenix properties. We would stay for a little over a week and each time, I never wanted to leave. It felt as though we were right at home with all of the space we had in the... More

We stayed here over the long weekend for memorial day. I would say this was an impromptu vacation and was not planned well because of my medical condition. Thanks to resort quest and the owner of 704 condo for making our holiday very relaxing and memorable. What I like about this place is it's right on the beach our room... More

I just wanted to share that we have stayed in this unit, it was about a year ago. They have really done a good job keeping this place looking nice, and have done some updates. The location is perfect...its at the end of the beach, near the state park fishing pier... and this condo has great views!! I would definately... More
