This was my first vacation in four years and it was worth the wait! Brett/Robinson made it so easy! I found them online and then talked with them on the phone and the people were so helpful.
First of all, let me say the photos of our condo did not do it justice. It looked very nice but when we got there, we found the condo to be much larger than anticipated and very nicely decorated. We had an unbelievable view and plenty of room. The amenities were terrific including a lazy river running through the property!
The beaches of Orange Beach are lovely, white sand and clean and so close to our condo.
We had one gloomy day so we went to the outlet mall and shopped til we dropped.
Parasailing was also on the agenda and my kids loved it!
One of the best parts for me, was a local art fair. I found some really unique art. There are many talented artists in Alabama.
I have to say that this was a wonderful trip and Brett/Robinson made it even better with their terrific service and lovely property.
Thank you Brett/Robinson!

We absolutely LOVED our room, awesome view from the balcony - we stayed at room 2202, which was clean & beautifully decorated, it felt like home. Our boys loved the "monkey room" - a room decorated just for kids!


The lazy river & slide was so much fun! Felt very safe with the pool staff circling, they were very friendly. We rented a boat & pulled the boys on a tube, they had a boat slip right at the condominium. Loved everything about this place!! Very good location too, close to the wharf!

(2nd submission) I wrote a review on this property Tuesday but, it must have disappeared so here goes:
We arrived Mon. 10/24/11 checked in about 3:30 pm to Phoenix on the Bay Unit #1408. Grounds were very nice and after unpacking for a week of R'n'R we learned our way around the property. Took some pics and as you know posted one each day as agreed. Staff was very accommodating and friendly.
Tuesday0/25/11 after a hearty breakfast I set out to cruise the local shops, purchase groceries for our stay and secure info on local events. Of course, my husband went "fishing". Later, in the day we visited with some friends from Foley and enjoyed the hot tub downstairs!
Wednesday was a day of cruising the shops and planning out our next few special events we wanted to attend during our time on the coast. As expected my husband went "fishing" again. LOL Time to relax in hot tub.............
Thursday was girls day for shopping and lunch @ Fish River Grill II on US Hwy 59. Greta service, good food and waitress was very sweet & attentive. All had a great day.Hot tub time again! Another visit to hot tub/pool area.
Friday was spent relaxing in the early part of the day, rode by the Arts Center on Canal Rd. by Wolf Bay and viewed the museum and Scarecrow Festival exhibit. Also, some more shopping @ Souvenir city & Purple Octopus.Dinner @ Live Bait. Another visit to the hot tub , love the hot tubs.........
Saturday we all went to Elberta for the German sausage Festival. Wow! What a great day of fun with friends and family. Back to condo to wind down and of course, hot tub for me and fishing for the hubby.
Sunday we visited some of the flea markets, lunch @ Big Daddy's and walk on the beach before returning to the condo. Just chillin' this night and preparing to say goodbye and pack for early start & checkout Mon.10/31/11 :-(
Mon. 10/31/11 Took some pics on beach by the Hangout before leaving the coast. Had a lovely vacation and looking forward to our return real soon. GS/OB is our favorite vacation spot. Thanks again, hope this will enlighten some people and I strongly suggest if you plan a vacation to the Gulf coast of Ala. stay at a Phoenix property with Brett-Robinson. We have been vacationing there for the past 16 plus years and we've stayed in many different condos but, Brett-Robinson & Phoenix properties meet our needs best.

Beautiful unit. wonderfully decorated 2 bedroom unit. Updated electronics, top floor unit with parking garage on the same level, makes check in and check out very easy. This facility is a dream, great pools, water slide, lazy river and this unit even has a boat slip which was why we chose it.

We loved our week at Phoenix on the Bay and we will try to get this unit again. It was a dream!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. We live an hour from here and travel frequently to Orange Beach which allowed us to get an excellent last minute deal. It was our first stay and we were very excited about relaxing on the lazy river. The location is quiet but close to shops and restaurants. No immediate beach access but gorgeous views from the balcony.
My ONLY complaint was the cleanliness of the shower and tub. There was mold in the shower corners and bottom of shower door. The jacuzzi/whirlpool tub was absolutely filthy around the jets. I spent an hour thoroughly dismantling and cleaning so I could use it. Not exactly vacation fun...
Also the Master Bedroom carpet was stained and dirty. Get rid of the carpet, clean the tub and shower better and this place is perfect!

This was our 5th summer vacation at POB and we love it! It is a great place for kids and adults. I love the fact that the resort is secured and not just anyone can get it. The lazy river, slide, and pools are great. The staff are always welcoming and we look forward to next year!

This is our 6th time to Phoenix on the Bay and we enjoy it everytime. The Lazy River is great and the kids love the slide. We enjoy the view of the bay. Very nice that the management enforces quiet time at night. The rooms are quiet and decorated nice.
Very easy to live in.
We will go back again!
