We found this place as a last minute condo rental for 4th of a July weekend. It was out a ways from "Gulf Shores" so you must plan your shopping and trips to town accordingly. However, once on site, plenty of activities to keep kids busy. Convenient beach access and several pools to choose from daily. Not for you if...

My family stayed in the Dunes condos last week, unit 5506. We had an excellent overall experience. The room was very clean and decorated nicely. We stayed in a two bedroom with a pullout couch. The beds were much more comfortable than we expected. Our only complaint was that the unit is very small. When the sofa bed was pulled...

We stayed here for a birthday and fathers day and really enjoyed it. The location was very nice away from all the hecticness of the main gulf shores and orange beach condos. The beaches were pretty packed but very quiet and very pretty. It was a bit of a drive from most of the restaurants and attractions but we enjoyed...

What a great family destination! The kids LOVED the pool with the kiddie pool. I loved the ease of everything be so close to our condo. This was the second time staying at the Plantation, and we will stay there again. Only issue we had was the change machines we're out of change for the laundry.

We stayed in building #2 in unit 2305. We rented through Gulf Dreams. They were very accommodating and quick to answer any questions we had. Unit 2305 is a 500 square foot one bedroom one bath condo. It says it sleeps 6 thanks to a sofa bed but I can honestly that as a family of four with an 11...

This is a very dated complex. Brand new appliances. Didn't help modernize. No washer and dryer in units. Huge rats by the pool. All electric outlets in condo are completely worn out. The staff, which was born well after facilities were built. Are AWESOME! Kellie at check was informative,knowledgeable, and polite. Every employee we spoke with was polite.

My wife and I stayed a week in unit 1170, owned by Steve Meine. The condo was very nice, a small studio. Our unit was on first floor and had easy access to the pool and to the beach. The property was very quiet.

This was our first stay at Plantation Resort. We stayed in one of the studio rooms. It was a little dated, but comfortable. We loved the fact that the resort was quiet and not too crowded.
