My husband and i just returned from a 4day stay at Sugar Beach 243! The condo itself if very nice. A previous reviewer stated that it was very dim lit, i think they must have reviewed the wrong unit as the lighting was fine!! The unit has a gulf view; however, it is right above the pool so it can be noisy! It was high season so this was expected! The AC Unit is on the balcony so in order to enjoy the view without the noise and heat from the AC we had to shut off the unit when we were outside.
The room has a king bed that is really comfy but could use a new comfortor as it is showing it's age. The sheets and the comfortable were both clean though..
The kitchen is very nice and has plenty of dishes and utensils to use if you like to cook while you are at the beach. The kitchen really was a hit for us as it was stocked with anything we need to cook with as well as granite countertops and new cabinetry that made it even more pleasant.
The Sugar Beach condos are very old in comparison to many of the places in Orange Beach and i can see how one unit could possible be way better than others if they had not been renovated like 243 clearly has been.
The interior of the building is very dimly lit with no air conditioning. It reminded me of a college dormitory! It was fine considering we had a great little studio overlooking the ocean.
I was not as impressed with the beach!! Everyone said to expect blue water but that is just not the case in Orange Beach. The water was the same color as the lakes we have here in TN! It was not bad just not what folks led us to believe we would be experiencing! The beach is not well maintained and folks leave their beach gear overnight in piles!! Really weird and simply a mess! Lots of cigarette butts and trash on the beach as well. Even though our condo interior was very nice I will likely chose a different beach than Orange beach in the future!!! There are nicer and cleaner beaches with nicer accomodations than Orange Beach!
