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 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 was our first trip staying here and we really had a great time during our stay in 6208. Everyone there was a pleasure to be around. The front desk was very helpful and full of information. I will stay there again.

We arrived mid evening to our condo to find it not ready for us. Sheets had not been changed, no towels and no supplies as listed. We did call the number given to us and someone did come and get everything ready, but arriving to what we did was not much to our satisfaction for a vacation. The person at... More

We have been going to the Plantations every year since 2012 (and were there in 2007 and 2008). Other than in 2013, we've always stayed at the Palms building. We have always had a wonderful experience. We just returned and stayed in unit 5506 in the Dunes. Still wonderful beaches. The condo was old and dated with big bulky furniture.... More

Rented unit 1102 at gulf shores plantation. Had a view of the gulf from our balcony that was great. Updated clean interior. This unit is one bedroom with a cute bunk bed for one in hallway and pull out couch. Perfect for our family of four. We would definitely stay here again. The beach is really nice and town isn't...

This was our thrid trip to the Plantation! We absolutely love it at this resort. It is very family friendly and my daughter and her friends love it there also. It is off the beaten path away from the crowds in town which a huge draw for us, however, there are still nice restaurants and a few shops near by... More
