Searched long & carefully on-line and used Gulf Shores city brochures as well....found a great place Gulf Shores Plantation Dunes and called the rental agent (was also on Trip Advisor which I used as reference, too). Looked good and stated 2 bedrooms/baths and (3) beds--slept 6. Deck and view of Gulf...2 pools---all good. We had 3 adults and 2 kids---perfect... More

Why just go to the beach when you can go to a world class family oriented resort with a half dozen pools, tennis and basketball courts, basketball, weight rooms, hot tubs, volleyball, etc. etc. We had a great week there. The room was clean and comfortable with a beautiful sunset oriented view showing both the gulf and the island of... More

We had an amazing week at Gulf Shores Plantation! Excellent location if you want to be away from a lot of the high rise condos. The beach was not very crowded. The condo was clean and comfortable. We felt like we were at home! We cannot wait to go back!

We stayed here 4 nights with 3 kids and it was great. We had a 2 bedroom condo with 2 bathrooms and had a beach view from our balcony. The pools were great and easily accessed, the beach was huge. We rented from an individual owner, so we didn't have a towel exchange, but other than that, it was great.... More

Each summer we head to the beach for the week. This year we chose to visit Gulf Shores. However, we wanted something not to overwhelmingly busy. So we chose The Plantation Resort. We enjoyed ourselves. The access to 7 swimming pools, one of them being indoors, was amazing. We wish we had had a washer and dryer in the room... More

Room was decent but a bit dated. It had a well equipped kitchen and movies available in rental and for free in resort office. We were in Plantation East which is older. We had 2 bed, 2 bath condo which worked well for our family. Beach is awesome!

Great place to stay!! Booked last minute with Beach Girl Vacation rentals and she was awesome. We really enjoyed our stay, just had a studio beachfront but it was perfect for us. They have all different types of rental places. Many pools inside and out. Great big complex and beautiful beaches. A lot of the rentals only have a gulf... More

We absolutely love Gulf Shores Plantation! We've visited GSP for 8 years now! This year, our family of four stayed in a one-bedroom at Plantation Palms, and had a marvelous time. Just a short walk to the pools and beach. We can't wait to return!

We stayed for 3 nights in mid-July in Unit 4401. It is owned by a private party and was rented through VRBO. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the resort. The beach is great and the water was very swimmable/playable even for the 5 & 8 year olds in our group. It (the resort and the beach) was BUSY but... More

This is our second vacation to Gulf Shores & staying at the Gulf Shores Plantation. Overall a great experience, the beach front is beautiful, and lots of it. Our condo this time had a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. When we arrived our condo was nice & clean, however we noticed it did need some cosmetic attention to... More
