“Best Vacation Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Loved our trip! Wanted a nice place for my grnandaughter and I to go for a "girls" trip and this was perfect! The hotel was beautiful, and EVERYTHING was amazing. From the staff, the room, the breakfast, the pool, the beach-wow! We loved sitting on the balcony watching the sun come up and the dolphins swimming by. We really felt special! Jarrod was a great help and super friendly and accomadating, all the staff were wonderful ( sorry I don't know all their names).
We felt so safe, and never worried, which has kept us from going far from home before, but now we plan on doing this at least twice a year! Heed their recommendations on where to eat, we strayed and regretted it! july/august

Room Tip: all rooms are great, but can't beat the gulf front, pay the extra, it's worth it!

The hotel and employees were very nice. The location was perfect. The beach was beautiful. There were chairs to rent on the beach for only $5 an hour. The breakfast was a great way to start our day. The pool area was clean and had a very nice pool. Thank you again.

Room Tip: Try and get a gulf view, it's so relaxing

The hotel and employees were very nice. The location was perfect. The beach was beautiful. There were chairs to rent on the beach for only $5 an hour. The breakfast was a great way to start our day. The pool area was clean and had a very nice pool. My kids loved the hammocks. It was nice that there was a poolside snack/bar.

We arrived from England to stay here for 3 nights.
It was everything we had researched on the Internet. The gulf views, white sands, clear water and stunning beach is just what we wanted.
The welcome was warm and Audrey on the desk has been great from recommending resturants to helping us out.
Billy and josh in the pool bar are great and the pool area is quiet, clean and family friendly.
The rooms are ideal and we have enjoyed staying in them. Fridge is great for cooling drinks.
All the staff are helpful and friendly and have made us feel special.
Keep it up - we will be recommending it back in the uk.

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. Property is nice, well kept. Check in was a nightmare. We arrived and was told it would be about 3 hours before our room was ready so we gave them our phone number to call when it was ready. Ran out of things to do so came and sat in the lobby and watched family after family after family check in while we waited and waited and waited. Phone call never came and we were not notified our room was ready even after we told them we would just be waiting in the lobby. Staff at front desk have a huge "I don't give a darn attitude." After we finally went BACK to the front desk and were told our room was ready we went to room and then went to the beach. The beach bartender Billy was extremely nice and friendly. So this calmed our ruffled feathers quite a bit, giving us a little better feel about things. The next a.m. in the breakfast area we needed some help and this very nice black girl, I didn't get her name but she had long pretty kinda wavy/curly hair helped us. Even though breakfast was officially over and she didn't have to she went to great lengths and trouble to help us with a problem we were having. Really wish I had her name because you really appreciate the ones that go above and beyond when you are treated the way we were by the front desk staff. Not sure if I'd come back though.....watching all those families go in ahead of us while we waited for hours was very irritating.....

Just returned home from a 4 night stay with my family of 4. We have 2 small kids and this hotel was more than enough room for us. We had a gulf view king bed. Has sink area with microwave and small fridge. Bathroom was more than spacious! Staff were excellent. everyone was so nice and accomadating. Grounds kept exceptionally clean. My kids loved the pool with the walk in area. Not overcrowded at all. The poolside bar was a plus. Snacks for the kids and drinks for us. The bartender, Billy, was awesome! He always had popsicles for the kids and was our favortite staff at the hotel! Will definitely be returning to this place. We were so sad to leave

Room Tip: Gulf view room is worth the extra money

Originally booked this location in June of 2012 for my 3 kids and me. Fell in love with this place then and booked again for this year. Just returned home yesterday from Orange Beach and have to say that I am just as impressed! The room was more than accommodating for the 4 of us which includes a fridge, microwave, and coffeepot. Plenty of cabinet space to store snacks and what not. Balcony had a breath taking view of the Gulf. The pool, which is basically 2 pools, is great. Along with the hot tub. Upgraded this year to a Gulf view room and loved it. Property is right on the beach! Just walk thru the pool area and you are there. Great poolside snack shop and bar with very decent prices. The free breakfast in the mornings is wonderful, including eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, toast, English muffins, yogurt, cereal, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, and other things. Truly a full breakfast! Located right next to souvenir shops and across the street from great restaurants and family fun arcades, minigolf, gocarts, and much much more. The hotel staff is very friendly and very accommodating as well. Only complaint is that it's not closer to home (Kansas City) for us. We will for sure be back again next year!
