We had a good stay. We've stayed at this complex a few times and love that it is on the beach, has a nice pool area, a game room for the kids and that it is not a far walk to get on the beach. The elevators are a bit slow and could use some type of air or ventilation, but the actual condo was great. Gulf Sands Rentals was easy to deal with and gave clear instructions on how to find their office, the procedures for obtaining the key and the rules and procedures for the condo.I would recommend both the condo & the Rental company.
Great stay! Perfect location--close to beach, town and anything else you might like. Would love to stay here again. Place could use a little updating and the sliding doors were very sticky.
We loved our stay. Comfortable. Great location. Beds had amazing mattresses and overall the unit was spotless. The only critique we have is that the kitchen could use 1 large pot so that families can make spaghetti or red beans to save money. We look forward to our return stay next summer!!
very nice condo conveniant to everything in gulf shores i would recommend it only draw back id i wish it washer and dryer in condo. Decorated very nice real comfortable.
Thanks for your review! We are glad to know you enjoyed Southern Sands 102, the location, and decor. Thanks for your comments. The plus side of having the washer and dryer facility on each floor is more room ++ inside the condo! We look forward to host another stay for you in the future.
This was our first time as a family to visit Gulf Shores - we usually go to Destin. So thankful for Sybil, who answered the 800 number on my paperwork b/c there was no one in the Gulf Sands office at 5:55 (closed at 6) when I called to get instructions on check in. (The next day the email and voice mail came through on my cell phone, instructing us that they were closing early and where to find our keys!) Also, being our first time visiting Royal Palms, were not informed of where to park to unload (fyi - you have to take the carts out to the parking lot for loading/unloading). We were without cable tv for two days - maintenance came around and reset the tv's, but left our condo UNLOCKED! when they left. There is no front desk to go to for assistance, just a phone number. The den needs more comfortable seating or at least another chair. Even though this condo "sleeps 6", it's not large enough for a family of 4! It does have a coffee pot - even though the description says only a Keurig (brought ours from home to be safe). The beach was great - not crowded; the chairs/umbrellas are big and sturdy. Loved the large table and chairs on the balcony!
Thanks for your review. We did close early on Sunday, May 28, at 4:00 PM, as we had completed tasks for the day and it was Memorial Weekend. We have instructions for after hours arrivals which we completed by leaving you a voicemail and emailing you instructions as that is protocol and delivered successfully. Sybil was aware of your after hours arrival plus all others.
Parking information is located on Page 2 of your check-in packet. Thanks for your comments, we will add wording that the complimentary luggage carts, located by the elevators, will need to be brought to the guest's vehicle to load / unload.
Royal Palms was in the process of upgrading the cable throughout the building. We are not part of the HOA Building Maintenance but have logged your comment about the cable company technician.
Royal Palms is a condominium complex and does not have a front desk. We provide all our contact information on our website, when reserving, and in the vacation rentals we manage.
The condo is approx 676 sq ft and we appreciate your feedback. The description notes the condo has a Keurig Coffee Maker (it does not say 'only'). We will update it to add that a regular coffee maker is available as well. We provide the complimentary filters for guest use. If you have any questions prior to check-in or during your stay, please give us a call or send us an email so that we can relay any information to you.
Thanks for your comments and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores.
This was our first vacation to the beach, and it was perfect. The condo was very clean, well stocked with everything we could need, and decorated beautifully. Loved the easy beach access and views from the end balconys. We will definetly be using gulf sands rentals for our vacation next year!
What a great week we had with our best friends of many years! The Plantation is an awesome complex,with so many amenities.The pristine beaches and palm trees are gorgeous! Great view of the Gulf of Mexico from this unit! Amazing Sunsets,and two great Restaurants on site.Our favorite place for several years now!
One we decided to spend our 16th wedding anniversary at the beach, I knew to contact Gulf Sands. We have tried other rental companies in the past but once we found Gulf Sands we were hooked. The reservation process is easy and the staff is always so friendly. Our condo was very clean and nicely decorated. The view from the balcony every morning was breathtaking. We will definitely stay at Seacrest 405 again!
Thanks for the great review and congratulations! We are glad to know you enjoyed Seacrest 405 and the view. Your feedback is much appreciated. We look forward to host your next getaway!
Great rental! We were very pleased and would definitely stay there again.
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we are so glad we ventured there from Minnesota. The beachy decor of the condo created a casual atmosphere and the unit was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. These are the main things that make a stay great. Comfort and Clean. We ate all our in room meals on our balcony which provided us with astoundingly beautiful ocean views. We are very glad we chose Unit 704 at Seacrest.
