Seawind Condominiums
Reviewed April 24, 2011

We were scheduled to stay here for Spring Break. When booking the room, I stated my concern over the lack of a picture of the pool. The real estate company said that the pool was good with an extra area for the kids. We got to the condo and were very disappointed with the pool. It has an indoor/outdoor pool, just like the ad says, but the outdoor pool was very, very, very small. Almost useless unless there was only one person in it. It was like they built the condo and said "Oh yeah, we forgot to add the pool!" And they added it in the only space they had left.

We did not even go into the room, we cancelled our reservation and went somewhere else. If you don't care about the pool, maybe stay here, but if any pool is important, I would go somewhere else.

Stayed: March 2011, traveled with family

Please accept our apology for the inconveiance of the size of the indoor/outdoor pool. Upon completion of the building and the realization that the complex may need to add an additonal feature to offset the size of the indoor/outdoor pool, the zero entrance kiddie pool with water features was added to help accomodate the various clientel that Seawind may have. We also offer 300 ft of beachfront for all of our guests to enjoy.

These condos are in a nice location a few blocks east of the main drag leaving Gulf Shores, and front a wide enough section of their own beach that it was never too crowded. We stayed in one of the corner units with oversized balcony, and it was enormous and offered views in both directions of the gulf, it was literally probably 40 feet in length. The view from the sixth floor is great, but certainly now what you'd get from one of the higher floors. The units are very new and upscale, easily worth $300 nigth for multi-bedroom units.

The fitness center is very nice. The pool is too small though, and there is only one hot tub which was at times filled to capacity. The parking is covered and convenient, no issues there. It's condos so no restaurant on-site, although many places walking distance or a short drive (the better restaurants we found were in Orange Beach or in Perdido, FL). The little seafood shack right next door gets rave reviews, but we found it to be mediocre.

Within 45 minutes, you can be in Pensacola, we took our son to watch the Blue Angels practice at the navy base, and he loved it more than words can describe. We took the Dauphin Island ferry, which we'd recommend too.

Primary reason we wouldn't say five stars is the way too small pool and small (and lone) hot tub for such a giant condo development.
