Escapes! to the Shores
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Very, very nice condo with all the amenities: fantastic pool (inside and outside), hot tub, sauna, steam room, incredible views of the gulf near restaurants and family fun. We've been coming here for many years.

Room Tip: Choose only 2 bedroom and up. The one bedroom do not have windows or view of any kind.

We stayed here for 4 days in mid-May 2014 for the Hangout Music Festival. My wife and I got a 2 bedroom on the 12th floor facing the beach and the unit was HUGE. I believe we took the 2-bedroom because there were no smaller rooms available. It was more money but absolutely giant. 2-bedrooms, 2 baths, a full kitchen, a giant living-room area with a large flatscreen TV. A big balcony with 4 chairs and a table overlooking the beach & Gulf of Mexico. The check-in process was quick and painless. The pool area is nice as well and leads right out to the beach. There is a parking garage and carts to bring luggage or other things up to your room. Remember that it's not a hotel so there is no maid service, bellhops, etc. The complex is along the row of other condo buildings that line the beach (many, many of them) and about 5 miles east of Gulf Shores, 15-20 minutes west of the Flora-Bama bar and maybe 45 minutes west of Pensacola which is where we flew into. A nice spot in a great area that we had never been to before. Thanks to Escape to the Shores for a great weekend.

Room Tip: I can only say that the oceanfront/oceanview rooms have nice views. The rooms that face the interio...

I booked a 2 bedroom suite for the dates of 5-29/6-1 nearly 2 months ago and paid in advance in full. I received a call late this afternoon from EXPEDIA stating that the resort had over booked and was no longer honoring my reservation that again has been paid in full and deducted from my account which should have never been charged if there were not rooms. What I think has happened is there is probably a regular that wanted a room and mine that was booked through expedia is the one they will get! I will never again do any booking through EXPEDIA and I certainly would not dream of staying at this property or any other that is owned by HOME AWAY!

We stayed in a great 2 bedroom with ocean/beach view. It was huge, clean, and nice! We loved it!!! The beach wasn't over crowded. The best thing was the indoor pool!!! It was windy and cold while we were there so we really used the pool indoors the most. The sauna and hot tub were nice too! Having 2 huge bath tubs and 2 showers in our condo was great. We will be back!

This is a Beautiful property. Our room faced the beach. The amenities are great (indoor pool, hot tub, spa, sauna, steam room and gym are). The two bedroom is extremely large and well furnished. I highly recommend staying there.

Room Tip: Did not use room service or the spa but the facilities are wonderful

We had not stayed in Gulf Shores area in a long while. We stayed at Escapes resort for 5 nights this past week. This is a TIMESHARE Rental---The view front the 10th floor was Spectacular -the best in all our stys in Hilton Head /or Myrtle Beach. But the rest was a concern, The unit was 17700Sq.Ft/ quite large, the Microwave was filthy, the carpets in both Bedrooms was extremely dirty /stained and spotted thru out. the 2nd bath shower was to say the least not clean . But this is a Much Used Timeshare Unit..would we go back....well/ Maybe-- the pool/Patio and beach were great.Rated average because of unit condition not area. Probably would come back but not here. go to VRBO first
