Young's Suncoast did a marvelous job getting everything ready for our arrival and gets 5 stars from us. The condo (1101 Island Tower) was decorated nicely, however, there was a sign above the thermostat telling us to not lower the temperature lower than 72 degrees because the unit would fail. I lowered the temp and found this to be untrue. This condo faces the east with open glass windows floor to ceiling and heats up quickly, making for a miserable stay during the intense heat of August. The clothes dryer is old and requires a minimum of two drying cycles to dry a regular load of clothes. There is also a sign on the bedroom walls advising guests of how to properly operate the blinds in the bedrooms, an unnecessary addition. As we were checking out and moving our things to our vehicle a gentleman identifying himself as the owner asked why we were still there, even though it was before the required checkout period. 3 stars for the condo 1101. Island tower is a great building and we will stay here again, just a different unit.
This place has seen its better days; needs re-doing. The advertising for it was overhyped. Bad realtor
The floor to ceiling windows in the living area really open the place up to being at the beach. I liked the undedicated bathroom in the hall., not going through a bedroom to get to a bath. Island Towers has great elevator arrangement. We had an elevator outage while there but encountered no longer waits. The beach isn't all that crowded here either. All the kitchen stuff is there and grills down on the sand. We'll be back !

The view from this condo is the best we have ever seen in Gulf Shores, and one of the best we have seen from anywhere in the world. My wife and I just as much time in the living room looking out at the gulf, beach and the Hangout Park than we did on the beach itself. The view is mesmerizing. Not too high, but just the right level to give you a commanding and entertaining feeling. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the entire place was clean and well decorated. Also enjoyed the workout room with yet another view of the Gulf. This place is a gem.
