“Great Vacation Place for Everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2011

This is our 6th time to Phoenix on the Bay and we enjoy it everytime. The Lazy River is great and the kids love the slide. We enjoy the view of the bay. Very nice that the management enforces quiet time at night. The rooms are quiet and decorated nice.
Very easy to live in.
We will go back again!

This is the 5th year we have stayed at Phoenix on the Bay. It is an excellent place to stay, especially with little ones(we have two 5year olds). The whole property is clean and well kept. The staff is friendly and helpful. The lazy river, water slide, indoor and outdoor pools, and hot tubs are great. There is also exercise equipment available for guests use. We always rent thru Brett-Robinson Vacations, and they are always ready to help in any way.

We are a Canadian family and had been booked on a cruise sailing from New Orleans in August 2010. Wanting a beachfront accomodation for a few days beforehand, we were a little apprehensive about conditions thay may have existed as a result of the oil spill. Checking trip advisor we came across the reviews for Phoenix on the Bay, were impressed by them and proceeded to check out the Brett Robinson website. We knew immediately that the POTB was not a beachfront property, but the huge lazy river and swimming pool would at least ensure our 9 year old son, and our 15 year old daughter and her friend traveling with us would have guaranteed water activity.
We asked a million questions through the online website chat, and by telephone, and finally booked unit B1111 (so many lovely condos to choose from). After a long 20 hour drive from Ontario, we were not disappointed. In fact. we were delighted. The lady at the front desk was exteremly friendly, and welcoming to five weary Canadians. Entering the condo, we were impressed by the cleanliness, and the luxury felt in each room. It looked brand new. Carpets were immaculate, bathroom off the master had whilrpool jets, linens were high quality. The unit was simply lovely, a real credit to the owners and management company. Unit 1111 looks right out onto area by the waterslide, so it was easy to check on our family when need be - most of the time we were in the lazy river with them.

A cashier at a local grocery store recommended a restaurant called Calypso Joe's (great food, service and on a marina so lots to see), and my husband and I also traveled a half hour to Big Daddy's Grille - (recommended by a staffer at POTB when we asked where the locals go). We also ventured a few miles to watch (free of charge) a flight training session of the Blue Angels -- A M A Z I N G !! (recommended by same cashier)

It was our first time in Orange Beach, and we thoroughly enjoyed the community and our stay at Phoenix on the Bay. Guess it's save to say we have a "new favourite".

At present, we're looking for an August 2011 stay. It was THAT good!

We had a great time! Recommend to families with children of all ages. Relax on the lazy river, soak up the sun in two pools, sun too hot...go inside and relax in the inside pool. My 1 year old grandson and 4 year old granddaughters had a blast! The girls loved the slide! My 11 year old nephew had the run of the place and was never bored. I will definitely stay again.

What a jewel. We loved tha
e ability to have all our kids, gradkids and boat on the water. Everyone could enjoy their favorite activity close together. Fish from the boat or pier, float the lazy river or ste on the balcony and watch the others. Would love to have a unit!!!

Our family celebrated Thanksgiving at this wonderful condo at Phoenix on the Bay, Unit #1525.
I was pleasantly surprised how well appointed the kitchen was, right down to the gravy boat. The decor was wonderful and the men certainly enjoyed watching football on the large flat screen TV.
Next year, we will be floating in the fabulous lazy river while that turkey roasts!!!!!!

We had a wonderful long weekend at Phoenix on the Bay. POB is a very convenient location to all local attractions and shopping. Plus the Condo is a beautiful topical area even though the time of year is WINTER! Our teenagers could swim in the heated pool and hot tubs while we worked out in the Gym! We loved our condo, everything was there except for the food! Although there are great places to eat.
