We stayed 4 nights in room 610 at the end of May 2014. This was an end room (east side of the building) away from the Hangout. We were a little concerned that the music from the hangout would keep us awake but we were there during the week - so they stopped about 11 pm. Staff was very friendly. Condo was beautiful, a little dated, but comfortable. Need rubber "slides" on furniture - you could hear every time someone moved a chair above you and on the balcony. Fully equipped kitchen. Towels etc. Very clean. A little confusing was the cleaning service. Brochures say they do not offer daily service, however the signs in the room ask weather you want to reuse your towels. (They DO offer daily towel service etc.) Sitting on the balcony was heaven, sound of crashing waves all day long was so relaxing that I didn't want to leave. Elevators were slow. the grounds need some updating and cleaning. The beach was nice, not very crowded at all. We did notice that the beaches towards Orange Beach (where there are many more condo buildings) were ten times more crowded on the beaches. The area was a little too touristy for us however staying on the beach or walking along the beach towards the pier was incredible. There does need to be a better cleaning program for the beaches themselves though. Some mornings there was garbage all over the beach. No one came by to clean up all day. many guests were walking around with their own garbage bags cleaning up trash. We were all cleaning the areas around us because obviously neither the hotel nor the city does that. They had the beach cleaning machines out cleaning the public beach but stopped right past the Pink Pony. All-in-all we loved our room and would come again. A little tip to the Phoenix - redo your bulletin board in the elevator please - very unprofessional. Also maybe you could post a sign near the elevator on each floor to remind people that talking very loud while waiting for the elevator or walking to their room disturbs the other guests (everyone's bedrooms are near the hallway.) Some people don't realize that sound carries and are a tad inconsiderate when coming home at night or leaving early in the morning. Also - could REMIND people not to smoke on their balconies.
