I tried to reserve Gulf Shores unit that I liked so my wife and I could watch the election returns in private and, of course, it was booked! As far as I can tell it is the ONLY unit booked on November 6th. Anyway, I went to Trip Advisor to see what units were recommended and was stunned at the barrage of negative reviews, so I decided to add a comment.
We have stayed with friends at Gulf Shores and, therefore, have not personally booked a unit, so I have no comment on management, but I can tell you what I know. The condo facility itself is great, with a nice pool and a twenty second walk to the beach. It also seems to be quiet and family friendly. As far as the units themselves are concerned, again I can only comment on what I know. My friends booked a second floor end unit, #209, that made me feel like I was at the beach and that was totally private. If I'm going to stay at the beach, I want to feel like I AM at the beach, not at my own condo. Unit 209 seems to be unique, with an open floor plan and eclectic, fun, smile producing decorations. If you are interested in Gulf Shores, just go through the photos of the units and the virtual tours, and you will see what I mean. Anyway, I DO recommend Gulf Shores. My experience has been nothing but positive.
