Regatta condos aren't new - far from it. This is an old school wooden construction condo building, actually 3 buildings in a U-shape surrounding a central pool. 3 floors of condos above parking.
I'm sure the condition of the condo interiors varies by unit and owner - we stayed in 105-B, rented from Starfish Realty. It was updated, very clean and had no musty smell whatsoever - a rarity in beach condos. It was a lovely beach front unit with 3 bedrooms and plenty of space and a great porch facing the beach.
Be sure to ask whether your unit faces the beach of faces sideways with a diagonal partial view of the gulf. Most units face the side, with a partial view.
We had a GREAT TIME at Regatta condos. There're right on the beach, the beach wasn't too crowded, we loved the condo unit we were in, we were close to everything, and we loved the pool - which was shaded from the sun by one of the buildings in the afternoon, at the hottest time of day when you need to get off the beach and our of the sun.
If you want a fancy new stucco building with granite countertops and stainless appliances, this isn't for you.
But if you want a family-friendly old-school, old-cool Gulf Shores beach experience - the way things were on the beach 15 or 20 years ago, we loved it and would rent from them again in the heartbeat!!!
