Phoenix III
Reviewed September 8, 2011

There was hair all over the bathroom floor and sand in the bathtub. The appliance/electronics were dusty. There was lipstick on the blanket. The tv remote nor the toaster worked. Overall the room did not appear to be cleaned regularly...the baseboards were dusty, etc.

We have stayed in this condo for several years in different months and always have a great time. The accomodations are clean and comfortable, the staff makes us feel welcomed, the beaches are beautiful and there are good places to eat. There are many things to do in the area so we find more to do than we have time! We leave every time looking forward to our next visit--which is always reserved ahead! Thanks Brett/Robinson for a wonderful vacation.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a beachside balcony.

What a wonderful vacation we had through Brett Robinson at their Phoenix III condo in Orange Beach/Gulf Shores AL in August.
This is our 7th stay in Gulf Shores, always with Brett Robinson and their Phoenix condos and it’s always a wonderful family trip. Each of the condos are owner decorated and this year we stayed in P3078 and it was the most beautiful room we have stayed in yet. The décor was beautiful and totally updated. Huge TVs in the living room and both bedrooms, appliances were better than I have in my own kitchen at home (full size HE washer and dryer, and huge side-by-side, bottom freezer fridge), the kitchen wear was beautiful, and the king size bed was SO comfortable. Since the owners did such a great job making this a condo amazing, they deserve for people to request this room. However, if you can’t get this unit almost all of them are wonderful (we go with several other families and I think we have seen most of the 2 bedroom units in the Pheonix III complex and I would stay at any of them).
The pool is great (shallow kids pool and reg pool 3-6 ft) and the white sand beaches are just breath taking. Not a trace of oil from the 2010 spill and I would even say cleaner than before it. At one point we were chest deep in the ocean and could still see our toes wiggling in the sand. The waves are perfect for youngsters. Enough for boogie boarding and jumping around, but not so rough that we had to worry about our kids swimming w/out life jackets.

Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach is a wonderful location for a great, laid back, family vacation. Our 5 year old son has autism and being able to cook his favorite foods and having his own space to sleep in the condo makes this vacation not only possible, but pleasant. The kids enjoy the beach and pool all day. Dad enjoys runs on the beach, working out in the gym and playing racquet ball with friends. Mom enjoys quite morning coffee on the deck overlooking the ocean in the mornings. As a family, we enjoyed all the great family friendly restaurants (LuLu’s, Gratzi, and Cobalt are huge favorites), spending time together swimming and building sandcastles, bbq down by the pool, and beautiful family pictures on the beach.
Brett Robinson is a wonderful agency and has always been helpful and courteous. We have also looked around and they have the best prices by far. Gulf shores is an enthusiastic two thumbs up by our family.

We have a wonderful time staying at Phoenix III P3073 condo. The ammenities within the condo were really nice, and the condo was nicely decorated. The facilities had so much to do such as tennis, racquet ball, fitness center, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, as well as, the beach. We chose to rent an umbrella and chairs from Ike's and stay on the beach. Naps were very pleasurable there. The view was really nice too. One of our favorite adventures was going to the seafood shops for fresh steamed seafood. The restaurants seemed glad for us to visit them as well. Shopping was great in Foley, AL. We will be back next year.

Room Tip: Read your reviews and check out the condo pictures. Make sure to get a room away from the pools but...

We stayed on the third floor(3048) from Mon./20 until Sun./26. Everything about the stay was 1st class. The condo was nicely furnished and clean and you could tell it was well maintained. Staff was courtious and efficient guests were friendly and to get to know. Beach was clean and the sand was the pure white that I remembered from years past. My daughter and grandson came with my wife and I. The grandson could not have had a better time. He is learning to love the beach in Orange Beach/Gulfshores just as his mother did when she was that same age. We brought her to the beach for the first time in the summer of '83 and stayed at the then brand new Island Winds East. Thanks D Barton

We arrived 6/11/11 and stayed seven nights. There were two adults and four teenagers. We had the best time. Enjoyed just sitting on the balcony and watching the people and the waves and visiting with each other. We cooked some good food at the wonderful grill area. Enjoyed the beautiful pool with its waterfall and the indoors pool and hot tubs. It Was a trip full of wonderful memories. Thank you Bret-Robinson.com!

We stayed 7 nights at Phoenix 3 in early June. Condo was nice. Very Clean. Access to the beach was good. Service at front desk was very courteous and helpful. Pools and hot tubs were clean. Beach was Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have stayed with Brett/Robinson vacations for 15 years and have never had a problem. My favorite property is Phoenix 5, however, we will be staying in Phoenix West in Aug. so I am expecting that opinion to change. Thanks again Brett/Robinson for a wonderful vacation.
