This place could be so nice if they did some work to it. The indoor pools were disgusting. The outdoor pool left a green mark on everyone. I just feel like no routine maintenance has been done here. We will not be back sad because we love the location.

Have been visiting this wonderful place for years and just noticed I'd never reviewed it! We absolutely LOVE the Plantation. We have stayed in almost every building on the older, family-friendly resort that offers everything you need and continues to keep improving. We are excited that they will soon open a small restaurant (Sassy Bass) around November and after all...

Family vacation with most time spent at the beach. Close walk to the beach, great views of the pools and the beach on the south side. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Cookware and linens were provided, stored, clean and in good condition. Our unit had a washer and dryer which was a plus for a week long stay. Plenty of...

If you want to stay in a place where everything is perfect, then this is not your place. If you want to stay at a place where everything works, is well kept and family friendly then this is your place. It is 12 miles from the main drag of Gulf Shores, so be prepared to bring everything with you. Awesome...

We stayed in a studio unit. It was around $375 for 3 nights, so pretty much the same as a hotel. And our room was about the size of a hotel room, but it was much Much dirtier. The first thing you noticed when you walked in was the overpowering smell of some kind of cleaner or more likely some...

I was in this two bedroom, two bath unit for work the other day. It's got a nice living room with leather furniture, dining area, on property laundry facilities but not in room. This unit would make a great little getaway for a couple or small family. This is a nice quiet complex away from all the hubbub of the...

This was my first time here with my husband and we found it to be very relaxing and the staff, especially Kelly was extremely helpful. Our room was on the 7th floor with both gulf views and bay views. The property was very lush with several pools, hot tubs and tennis court. The rooms were comfortable and would definitely highly...

About 10pm on the 3rd night of our stay, we saw a mouse scurry across the floor. It was easily the size of my palm and kind of black in color. I've been told it was a rat.

Connections Coffee Bar CLOSED until 2017. There is a restaurant in the Kiva Dunes although not sure about dragging the kids in there, a little pricey and upscale, not for beach wear. No game rooms as advertised. Buildings a little dated. On the bright side, the pools are awesome with some heated and two indoors. Great beach access, very quite...
