This was my first time here with my husband and we found it to be very relaxing and the staff, especially Kelly was extremely helpful. Our room was on the 7th floor with both gulf views and bay views. The property was very lush with several pools, hot tubs and tennis court. The rooms were comfortable and would definitely highly...

About 10pm on the 3rd night of our stay, we saw a mouse scurry across the floor. It was easily the size of my palm and kind of black in color. I've been told it was a rat. My two children and wife FREAKED out. We called Poole & Associates, the local management company and left a message. I drove... More

Connections Coffee Bar CLOSED until 2017. There is a restaurant in the Kiva Dunes although not sure about dragging the kids in there, a little pricey and upscale, not for beach wear. No game rooms as advertised. Buildings a little dated. On the bright side, the pools are awesome with some heated and two indoors. Great beach access, very quite... More

This is our second time to stay here and we loved it even more. It's very quite and relaxing. They have 7 outdoor pools! We love this place so much. Never want to stay anywhere else. It is about 20 mins from the restaurants and grocery but if you buy your food first then you have no reason to leave.... 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
