My husband and I just returned from our week vacation to Gulf Shores, AL. This was our first time to the area; we usually spend our beach vacations in the Clearwater/St. Pete area. The area offered A LOT to do - several fantastic restaurants and shopping choices. The location is great because it borders the state park on the East... More

I took my wife here 10-2-16 thru 10-8-16 for her 56th birthday. We absolutely had one of our best times ever ! This location is EXCELLENT ! Location is on the west end of a conservation preserve which helps make it "less busy" then the other areas of the beach. Our Condo was just the right size for a couple.... More

My annual pilgrimage to the gulf coast has been going strong for about 30 years now. With stays from Biloxi to PCB, we have tried to give our children many different experiences. Since my wife always likes to take family pictures at the State Park, we decided we would give Royal Palms a try this year (the State Park joins... More

Royal Palms has a fantastic location for those who like to walk an undeveloped beach area as it is the last condo in Gulf Shores before reaching Alabama State Park land. It is my favorite condo in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area because of the land around it. I have stayed in several different units, but this time we stayed... More

Hubby & I just got back from 5 nites at RP 404. The view is perfect. We've stayed on 7th floor before, but liked this better. It's just so much more peaceful as it's the last property before the State Park Bridge. Walk down on a weekend towards Sea n Suds.....it's just way too much partying for ole folks !... More

If you have the chance to stay at this condo, do yourself a favor and book it!! I have stayed twice in the month of September in one of the upper floor condos and have to say there is no better place to stay in gulf shores for privacy and amenities.

Stayed here for 4 nights in 603. It was a small little condo but it was clean and everything worked properly and served its purpose perfectly.

We have stayed at this complex every year for 3 years and it's always a good stay. The pool is not crowded laterin the year and they have an indoor pool as well. The owner of the last one we stayed in was extremely helpful.

We just wrapped up a family vacation here. We stayed 9 nights in unit 1304. It was on the Penthouse Level and had the best views to offer. No hotels around, security there 24/7. Clean public facilities and our vacation travel agents, Brett Robinson, were very good to work with. We will be back!
