My wife and I stayed at Plantation third week of May. My wife had been here before at same place with a co worker but I had never been. Needless to say the beach is beautiful white sand and doesn't burn feet in mid day. Water of Gulf can be rough but they last day clear enough to see the... More

The beach here is very nice compared to the "public" beaches on most of the gulf coast. Very clean. We rented a beach house in Plantation Estates and it included all the amenities. The pools appeared to be well maintained and trash was always picked up. It was also not too crowded for a holiday weekend. We will definitely stay... More

When I say I love it, I love all of it! The location, a little off from the "tourist" area in town but you can easily get to it, the staff are friendly, the pools/other amenities are clean and nicely taken care of, the amazing white sandy soft beaches, the nice little cafe you can get a cold Starbucks drink...

This was our second time staying at this resort. It is out and away from the nightlife. I like the location and beautiful views of the ocean. It seems like a family resort. We would like to stay here again.

When I rented this condo from Beach Rentals I saw some lovely pictures. The condo was decorated cute, but there were a few things missing when I got there. It looked like they only cared about their weekly renters, not the snowbirds. I had to buy a few fry pans, hand towels, dish towels and silverware. There was only one... More

As mentioned by another writer we also stayed in Unit 1153 through Global. The unit had just been remodeled so it was in pretty good shaped but a few things needed completion. The construction also bothered us and woke us early. The construction included inside Bld 6 and the building next door so we had a double whammy. The other... More

What a place, all of the ammenities of a fine european resort in gulf shores, the golf in the area is worth the expense much less all the other amenities, staff is exceptional and food is the best ever. Will definitely return

Last summer was our second stay at Gulf Shores Plantation through Rob's Condos. The first year we stayed 5112. It was a nice and cozy condo that fit our family perfectly.

We stayed here with our family and rented 4 units out for a week just past xmas. Rarely ran into any other guests-very quiet. Although our units weren't in the same building, we still had a wonderful time. We had a 2 bedroom condo with 2 queens and 2 full baths. Great view of the Gulf from our patio and... More
