This was our first time visiting both Gulf Shores and the Plantation. It was a bit out of the way (20 minutes from the closest town) but the beach was great here. We chose it for the variety of recreational activities to choose from on-site. We had 3 teenagers to entertain. They loved it! The room was clean and had...

My wife and I came here to get out of frozen Ohio for a week and it was worth it. The facility has indoor and outdoor pools and is steps from a beautiful white sand beach. There is golfing nearby and tennis on site. There were always a couple of puzzles being worked on in the spacious lobby and a...

Aug. 2016. Its been 10 years since we stayed at this resort and it hasn't changed all that much. The beach is still powder white and the water so beautiful. After looking around the grounds it looks as if,a little TLC is needed but don't let that stop you. If you are looking for a layed back,quiet spot,for a vacation...

I love this place! It is a quiet getaway right on the beach. The sun suites are great for 1 or 2 travelers. Their balconies overlook the beach. (I recommend the corner units for more space.) The units are a little older, but well maintained. The swimming pools are awesome. I especially like the security of a gated community. I...

If you like a quite family vacation spot this is the place for you. Plenty of amenities (Tennis, Shuffle Board, Bball, Outdoor Pool, Indoor Pool, Sauna) You can walk to fishing in Mobile Bay. Of course you have beautiful white sand beaches at your door step.

Great family resort with so much to do! Uncrowded, almost private like beach is so close, and the many other outside activities like tennis, basketball, and horse shoes,not to mention the many pools make it great for everyone. The indoor pool was just redone and looks great. There is even a workout room, steam room and sauna. We had a...

This place could be so nice if they did some work to it. The indoor pools were disgusting. The outdoor pool left a green mark on everyone. I just feel like no routine maintenance has been done here. We will not be back sad because we love the location.

Have been visiting this wonderful place for years and just noticed I'd never reviewed it! We absolutely LOVE the Plantation. We have stayed in almost every building on the older, family-friendly resort that offers everything you need and continues to keep improving. We are excited that they will soon open a small restaurant (Sassy Bass) around November and after all...

Family vacation with most time spent at the beach. Close walk to the beach, great views of the pools and the beach on the south side. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Cookware and linens were provided, stored, clean and in good condition. Our unit had a washer and dryer which was a plus for a week long stay. Plenty of...

If you want to stay in a place where everything is perfect, then this is not your place. If you want to stay at a place where everything works, is well kept and family friendly then this is your place. It is 12 miles from the main drag of Gulf Shores, so be prepared to bring everything with you. Awesome...
