“Nice room unit 202”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

This is our third time to stay in Phoenix VIII. We have stayed in three different rooms and floors. We were there for 4 nights at the beginning of Sept. 2013. Our room was nice with a large patio and it overlooked the pool and out to the beach. Each day we saw dolphins from our patio. The staff was very friendly especially Ms Irene. It seemed like it could have been alittle cleaner when we checked in, a hair on stove and one on bathroom floor. We were in need of a measuring cup but made due with just guessing. We used Brett/Robinson and they were helpful. The a/c unit worked real good. I left a noise maker under pillow, called the following day and talked with housekeeping and told them I would be writing to tripadvisor and she assured me she would go and look for it. Will keep you posted on the outcome. So far no word that it was found.

Room Tip: If you want a large patio get rooms on the end. Also you get alittle bit better view (without the p...

We really liked the Phoenix VIII. It's a smaller condo in great location with nice extras - indoor pool, kids pool, fast elevators, etc. Unit 402 was in nice shape and very clean. We rented through Brett/Robinson Vacations and the process was flawless. Check-in was at the condo, so even that was more convenient than usual. Highly recommend the Phoenix VIII and Brett/Robinson.

We enjoyed our stay at Phoenix VIII last week. We only had a few nights but we made the best of it. Our condo had everything we needed. Some items were a bit dated but we worked around these and made the best of our stay. When we arrived the condo had just been painted and the smell was overwhelming. I was a bit upset they painted just before we arrived . My daughter has asthma which concerned me. The cleaning crew needs monitoring because we did find some issues. The housekeeping staff came in and took care of our problems. One of the bathroom sinks had a drainage problem. I think it would be to their best interest to monitor the cleaning crews and improve their training.Though the parking lot looked filled, I was amazed at how the pools and the beach were not too crowded. We went out for great seafood and traffic wasn't bad. All in all we enjoyed the beach and recommend Brett/Robinson. The staff was friendly and our reservations were easy and quick.

We truly enjoyed our Brett/Robinson Vacation!! The location of our condo at Phoenix VIII was excellent. Unit #8102 has a large patio and direct access to the pool and beach. We highly recommend Orange Beach and the area!!

For years we have stayed at the Phoenix X which is really nice too but this year we stayed at the Phoenix VIII and I have to say I liked it even more! It's alot smaller which is so nice with little kids! Elevators are quick and pools are less crowded! We loved our huge balcony too! I definately recommend this unit and complex! We ALWAYS use Brett/Robinson Vacations because they have the best deals and we even got a night free! They are super helpful too! You won't be disappointed!

For the last four years, we've chosen to stay at the Phownix VIII for our spring break trip to Orange Beach and have never been disappointed. Brett/Robinson Vacations' staff are friendly & helpful. The rooms are clean & comfortable, although this year we noticed there were some minor repairs that need to be done. First floor patio is ideal for storing beach gear & for easy access to outdoor & indoor pools. Heated indoor pool was necessary in early spring, because the outdoor one was unbearably cold. The walk to the beach is long but worth it. There is a lot of space for playing on the beach. Excellent experience year after year! We're already looking forward to next year's trip.

Very nice and clean!! The carpet in the bedrooms could use a shampoo but they went too bad. The unit was well furnished and has one of the larger balconies in the building. It is a little low as it is on the second floor, but still a nice view of the beach. The building was nice and clean and very, very quiet. The building has a nice indoor pool which came in handy for our late October visit. The area around the condo has plenty of places to eat and shop. If you are thinking of visiting the Orange Beach area, I highly recommend the Phoenix VIII and unit 8202. The Brett Robinson Realty folks that are on site at the unit are very friendly and helpful with anything you need.

Room Tip: While I liked the second floor and the larger balcony which had a good vew of the beach, if you want...
