I've stayed at Crystal Towers on three separate occasions in three different condos. My first stay was in 2009 and over the years I've noticed that Crystal Towers has begun to show a little wear and tear. Of course, this is typical for most accommodations at the beach. I've rented from both Brett Robinson and Kaiser Realty and been pleased...

We were very comfortable, the beds are very nice and the pools were very nice. We enjoyed the lazy track it really cannot be called a lazy river. That part was disappointing. We liked the beach access and playing in the surf. The room is clean and well appointed, it needs to be updated and painted.

We stayed in Unit 903. Very clean, nice furnishings, and roomy kitchen. Great Bay view from the front door and although it is across the street from the beach, it has an awesome balcony view of the beach, street, pool and other condos. I've always been a "back of the class" kind of guy so I loved it. The pool,...

We spent two nights at this unit (1608) over the Memorial Day holiday. We had wanted a 3-day stay but the property was booked through Friday night so we took advantage of a 20% discount for just Saturday and Sunday nights. Driving 4 hours one way for a 2-night stay is usually not something we'd do but since it was...

Crystal Tower 207 is in a great location in the building. Perfect for families. My grandkids love this place. No elevators to deal with. Best pools and hot tubs in Gulf Shores. Also close to all the restaurants and shopping. This unit has great views and nicely updated.

Condominium was very nice however our specific condo (1409) could use some updated furniture and bedding. The views were amazing as it has lots of windows and 2 balconies. The kitchen was sparsely furnished with cooking utensils and pans but had a blender, coffee maker, and toaster.

Chrystal towers is mostly comfortable, but don't come here if you like a quite atmosphere, they have handed the place over to college kids on spring break. They are loud through out the night, Chrystal Towers notes quite time starts after 10pm, but that doesn't hold up. Stay away from the 2nd floor, as that is where the walkway is...

We were here with our teenaged daughters for Spring Break. There were lots of college kids in the building, but they were, for the most part, polite and respectful. The staff at Crystal Towers did a great job keeping the kids in line, while letting them have fun too. Joe was a staff member who was especially pleasant, helpful, and...

This is our 3rd stay at Crystal Towers and it remains one of the mainstays of Gulf Shores. The grounds are kept clean and fresh. It boast one of the better workout rooms, including several pieces of cardio equipment, weights, and a sauna. We stayed in condo #304 (third floor). The owners have updated this condo and it is also...
