“Save your money!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Looks great online...now feeling completely fooled. For starters, the elevator situation is a nightmare. There are only two elevators for 19 floors. We waited in long lines for most of our vacation and had to resort to climbing the stairs 8 flights on several occasions. The pools were a joke. They are tiny with beach access running in between them. The adult pool was in the shade most the day and was cold (in June). The bunk bed and light in the third bedroom was broken. It took two days for the bed to be fixed and six days before the light was fixed. Also, the TV in the third bedroom never worked properly. The unit (806) we stayed in was dirty. We actually found a t-shirt (not ours) in the master bed. There was mold in the main bathroom. The wall was damaged from the mold growth. Oh...and don't let me forget the vomit on the ground floor by the elevators. Which stayed there for awhile since the office closes at 5:00. The light outside our unit was broken and had a strobe effect going on. You could see this in the third bedroom. We reported this to the office on Tuesday and was told they would fix it on Friday. We had to put a blanket over the window to get sleep. So much for a great view of the beach and ocean. We woke up to graffiti written with seaweed every day. There were new sayings each day but I think my favorite was "Happy Farter's Day". (Yes that's farter's it...was Father's Day weekend). This was very disappointing since the beach was the main reason for our stay. This was finally cleaned up on Friday (the day we left). There were also rats around the BBQ area. We ended our vacation early and headed home because of all the problems. Never again!

During our recent trip to Gulf Shores, May 9 – 13, 2014, we stayed at the Seawinds Condominiums. Seawinds is located on the beach about ¼ mile east of the Hangout Restaurant, immediately next to the Sea & Suds restaurant. The building has 19 stories. The first 3 stories are covered parking. There is also a large outdoor parking lot for larger vehicles. There is easy access to the beach. The grounds were very clean and well maintained. Check-in and check-out was easy and quick.
Two issues that may be of concern to some people are the small swimming pool and the fact that there are only 2 elevators for this high-rise condominium. We were there when there did not appear to be a lot of people, therefore the elevator situation did not affect us. The property has 2 swimming pools. There is a large kids’ pool and there is an adult pool across the walkway. Half of this pool is outside and the other half is inside the building. There is not a lot of area around the pool for laying out in the sun, so if this is important to you, this is probably not the best place for you.
We stayed in unit 406, which was on the first floor of units. It was a 2-bedroom condo. The unit was well-maintained and very clean, with very nice furniture. The master bedroom had a king bed and the 2nd bedroom had a queen bed. Both had large closets. There was another room that had a set of bunk-beds that could be used as an additional bedroom. The kitchen was well-equipped and had just about anything you would need. It had a very large balcony that could be accessed from the living room and the master bedroom. It also had a full-sized washer & dryer.
Overall, we were very pleased with the unit itself and the property and had no complaints. We certainly would consider staying here again the next time we go to Gulf Shores.

Room Tip: The units start on the 4th floor and the rooms ending in #04 - #09 have the best view of the gulf.

I love this condo. The views are truly amazing. Located near popular and nice retaurants and the Hangout, I practically walk to everything. No hassles with finding parking or getting dinged up. Lots of things to see and do like Waterville water park, the warf, blue angels museum, (Pensacola) Didn't see elevator as a problem at all. Just waited for couple mins and was on it to 17th floor. Then again I am used to waiting in line for 2 hrs at popular place (think Disney) even with a Fast pass I am okay to wait for a while for the elevator. I guess that's what you have to expect when you go to popular destination and condos. After all I am on vacation and I take it easy.

Not much of a pool person, but when you have the beach who wants to be in a tub no matter how big it is. I prefer top floors no matter where I stay as I don't like to hear pool splashing and kids screaming. I have little kids too but hey I am on a vacation for a reason :)

If you like fresh fish, shrimp etc visit Joe Patti in Pensacola. Takes about 25 mins. Walmart is on hwy180 and 59S (GPS messed me up). There is another one on the beach blvd but has mainly groceries.

Great vacation location. The office was very accommodating. We were there with our family. There is a fantastic pool for the younger ones. The regular pool is a little small but our stay there at 407 was great. We even stayed an extra few days. I would recommend this condo highly. We have booked again for Thanksgiving. We could walk to the Hangout and next door to the Pancake House; Waffle House or Sea and Suds. We loved it. No problems.

We stayed in this unit. It is very nice. It is a corner unit, has a large balcony. The parking is great. Great location. We've stayed at seawind on three different vacations. You won't be disappointed.

We booked a condo at The Seawind in gulf shores for our annual trip to the beach. The condo was spacious and new but the complex only had 2 elevators and there was always a wait to get on. The pool was small and over crowded. Will not be staying here again.

Great Beach Great Location - We stayed in rm 1206 we were very impressed how clean the condo was when we arrived - my wife is a clean freak and it passed with flying colors. We were concerned with the reviews on the elevators - once we figured out, to get on at the ground floor not floor 2 or 3 and to try to stay off them around 10 am we had no problems. You can not ask for a better location, very close to everything. Fantastic Views. We will return to this condo for our future family vacations.

Room Tip: All the rooms have great balcony's the rooms that end in 04 have the largest balconys
