Great vacation at a wonderful Gulf Shore condo
Submitted: August 23, 2012

It was our second stay in the Gulf Shore/Orange Beach area.
We stayed in the # 2007 unit on the top floor at the Crystal Towers. It was a great choice and we would highly recommend it for anyone staying in Gulf Shores. The property owner was very helpful in answering all of our questions and recommending restaurants to visit while on site. She is very efficient in returning e-mails, booking our time on site, and sending keys to the condo for our stay.
The condo was very, very clean and tastefully decorated as well as spacious and comfortable for myself, my wife and our 8 year old twin boys. The pictures of the condo were exactly as the unit looked during our visit. The ocean view was great from the balcony. We sat and watched the dolphins swim out in the Gulf.
I was pleasantly surprised that the condo is fully stocked with all the kitchen requirements (pots/pans, plates, cultery/silverware, blender, coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, food processor) you might want or need. All of the condo items (TV's, washer-dryer, etc, are well cared-for amenities.
The building location is also nice in that it has the air-conditioned walkway (over the roadway) to the second pool and beach. Both outdoor pools with hot-tubs were incredible and enjoyed during our stay. The Crystal Tower's on-site personnel do a great job keeping the entire property looking clean and well-maintained.
The beach was great - I coughed up the $25 for two chairs and an umbrella for the day out of laziness, though you could easily bring your own chairs or setup as well. It was easy enough to walk back up to the condo for lunch or just to get out of the sun for a bit.
We will be back, and look froward to our return. We would definitely recommend this condo to all of our family and friends. Thanks again.
