“Youthful & rocking!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Newly built and contemporary.Very tall spires if height/small children r a concern.But the pools,lazy river,work out room,beach atmosphere,music,etc r for families or the young crowd.
Seniors w/o their families MIGHT be overwhelmed.

A beautiful double spire condo w every amenity. Not cheap and tailored for the mellenials or gen
X.Seniors tread w care.

Room Tip: consider the height of your condo!

Just "not a fit" would leave you wondering what kind of a review this could be. Let me begin by saying I would totally agree with every person that wrote how incredible the condos are, and how beautiful the beach is, so I will move on.

The information that I would like to add is that I think we went with an expectation that was not met due to the time of the year we traveled and the fullness of the resort. To me it had a cruise ship feel, by that I mean if one person did it everyone did it.

We traveled as a couple and looked forward to some quiet relaxing time to sit on the deck and listen to the ocean, however with a resort that lives out loud this was not what we got. When the pool zumba group is on everyone knows it and even on the top floors the music was unbelievably loud, and I love music. A band played at the poolside during the afternoons and again you heard it whether on your deck or by the ocean.

The huge decks are such a fantastic addition to the condo, however if you get by groups that are extremely loud on several sides as we did, again there goes your peaceful time. And by loud in some cases I just mean a lot of adults and children in one area enjoying one another which I am all for!

I want to add here that I struggle with personal rights which everyone there certainly had but I also struggle with common courtesy. We did call the front desk after hours of loud music, singing, and crudeness from a nearby condo. It was addressed, so in time the music did quiet down but seems not much the resort could do about the other behavior going on and it sure took away from our steak dinner and evening on the deck. The next night someone sat down on the beach and played there loud music for several hours, which again was there right. Again, I am not against joyful celebration, it just was not what we were there for.

I say all that to say, you will not find a nicer place to stay on Orange Beach. I would encourage you to pick your travel time and go here with your family and join in with the "entertain everyone" atmosphere that this resort does so well.

Our first time in Orange Beach and we picked the right place! Tripadvisor did not steer us wrong! I picked Turquoise Place based on the awesome reviews and was NOT disappointed! The condos are gorgeous, spacious, the staff is friendly. I love the assigned parking and security guards are at the entrance around the clock to make sure only those who belong are entering the property!

This is a lovely place- location is great- pools are even better and the condos are beautiful. My family- which includes 2 toddlers- 2 teenage boys- my parents - my husband and myself have stayed here three years in a row and plan on going back every year.

It's located pretty much in the middle of everything- close to the grocery store. The beach is beautiful and it's never been over crowded the tree times we've been there. The pools are clean and cool. Zero entry- lazy river- indoor pool and a huge kiddy pool that is kinda hidden and never busy- are kid favorites.

The condos are beautiful - top of the line kitchen - large rooms - closets and bathrooms. Beds are comfy- lots of extra linens and towells. Hot tubs and grills are on the balcony. Guard rails are high and closely spaced- huge sliding glass doors are heavy and lockable didn't have a problem with the little ones getting them open. The boys loved the gym- it was nice.

On busy days the elevators can be a bit slow and the carts can be hard to find- but those are the only negatives I can think of.

We stayed here last year and liked it so much we bought a condo! This place is phenomenal. Condo is quiet, spacious, clean, and has every amenity you will need. Love the hot tub and outdoor kitchen on each private balcony. The building is immaculate and has fitness center, indoor pool, tennis courts, etc. It is first class!

3rd time at turquoise first time in 4 bedroom. If you can swing the price go with the 4 bed, our party of 12, 6 kids 6 adults had more than enough room to eat, sleep watch tv or anything for that matter. Loved our view c tower east unit 1701. Only draw back with our stay if u have little ones you may want to stay in the d tower, Only for the convenience of the lazy river. Be fare warned if you stay here it will be hard to stay anywhere else.

Large indoor and outdoor pools, a lazy river, and beautiful views of the beach all make for a great stay. The four bed room suites have a glassed dining table that has views of the back gulf. Our suite had its own hot tub on the balcony and a huge bar-b-que grill. During the weekend there is live music by the pool and a nice bar.

The Alabama beaches are the whitest and cleanest in the world. They rack them every night.

I highly suggest you bring a big flashlight for late night beach fun. Also pack a pair of binoculars because you are so high up that its hard to tell who is who on the beach sometimes.

The staff is super friendly and were quick to help us with any problems.
