Jason N. Jul 2021
The condo was nice. Loved that it’s right on the beach and next to the pool. The back door lock didn’t work so we could only use the front door unless we left it open, the showers head to the master bathroom was broken but still ran water. Over all it worked for us.
Manager response:
Hello Jason, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are disappointed that the issues you experienced were not reported to us during your stay, as our local team in there to assist with these matters. We hope to host you again soon!

We loved the size of the unit and proximity to the beach!!
Rebecca T. Jun 2021
Loved the location of the condo in relation to the beach and pool. Nice seating area outside/on the patio. Nicely stocked with supplies (kitchen, grill).
Megan W. Jun 2021
Kitchen stocked with glassware, coffee pot, pots and pans. Needs a new dryer but still handy to have. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Steps away from a pool and the pier to the beach. Great location and condo was satisfactory.
Manager response:
Thank you Megan for your wonderful feedback! I have passed your comments regarding the dryer to our local staff. We hope to impress you again in the future!

The location of this condo is the best! Right out the door and to the pool or beach! Sassy Bass is also right there to grab something to eat, which was very convenient! Condo is very quiet, we never heard people around us. People are very friendly. We appreciate how well stocked the condo is, plenty of kitchen supplies, towels and washcloths, bedding and blankets. Generous amount of “starter” items like dish soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper. Plenty of hot water and great water pressure. I do wish the front door would be repaired. While it is secure, it doesn’t look good at all. We love this location and anticipate coming back again!

Everyone tried to social distance. This was the safest place to stay and still be safe. No crowds, every thing was kept clean at pools, sidewalk s and board walks. All employees wore face masks.

First floor, steps to the pool and beach, perfect for families
Debi A. Jul 2020
We loved being on the ground floor and so close to the beach. The condo was in great condition and clean. We can't wait to go back! We had two small issues while we were there and they were taken care of within a couple of hours. We highly enjoyed our stay in Fort Morgan at the Plantation Dunes.

The location of the condo was great, close to poolside and sassy bass restaurants. Had a great fishing trip on Friday.
Diane B. Jul 2019
Found a place for our whole family to get together! This place had all the extras to make our beach vacation special. So close to the beach, pool, hot tub, tennis court and a small putting green. We plan to stay again. The beach was beautiful and not crowded like a lot of other places that we have stayed.

We have rented this condo for many years and love it for the spaciousness and convenience to beach and pool!

First, the location is probably one of the best in regards to door to beach, door to pool access I've ever had and I've been to the Gulf 25+ times.
But, there are several concerns. I don't like to leave negative reviews but perhaps addressing these issues will help, so that is the intent. We pulled onto the property at 3:30, 4:00 was the guaranteed check in time. Granted, I've arrived slightly early many of the times I've visited the Gulf and have been able to get in a little early, but 4:00 is the TIME so I'm understanding. The problem was that the kind gentleman at the desk said they hadn't cleaned the room yet when I stepped at the desk at 3:35. Fair enough...after a few phone calls here and there, he said they were on it and that I could drive around and he'd give me a call. After driving from KY and then the 14-15 miles down Ft. Morgan Road (which I don't mind at all) the last thing I wanted to do at the time was drive around some more. We sat in the parking lot waiting and at 4:16 got the call that the room was ready. I didn't complain at the time because I wanted to get into my room and maybe someone will think this is nitpicking, but I think its pretty bad customer service. And how clean did the condo REALLY get???
After receiving directions on how to get to our room, it was never mentioned that construction was taking place in the area we were directed to go. There are two doors to the room, but we were given directions to the wrong door, luggage in hand. Again, 10 hours in a car, now this, not looking good.
Speaking of the doors, they need some work. Rusty around the metal and dry rot around the frame. People like the 'peace of mind' feeling from a strong secure door. I didn't have it all week.
Additionally, there were three confirmed roach stompings in three different areas of the condo. These suckers were 2-3 inches long. Bugs don't bother me, but I'm sure somebody reading this might get a little uncomfortable thinking about roaches crawling around the floor where luggage lay and where one of the kid beds sit, close to the ground. If not, that's fine but my wife and daughter didn't care for them and they were the first to see them so that is enough for me. Maybe secure doors would fix part of that.
Lastly, there was ceiling leak in the master bathroom and every time the floor above flushed you could hear drop, drop, drop and see a stained wet ceiling. Better fix!
Address these and its 4-5 stars all the way.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry to see it was not smoother for you. We have notified the owner's association of your comments regarding the doors so they add them to their maintenance list. The bugs you mention look like roaches but are palmetto bugs; they fly inside when doors and windows are left open. The leak has been fixed. We apologize for the late check-in and appreciate your patience in the matter.

We had a great time. It wasn’t our first trip to the plantation but it was our first time staying in this room. We were a little worried about noise and privacy but there was no outside noise noticeable and privacy wasn’t an issue. We absolutely Loved the ground floor. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Can’t wait to go back.
Melissa T. May 2019
It was a clean place. Everything we needed was available. We had a problem with the microwave, but it was resolved immediately. The only thing was my son was looking forward to using the steam room which wasn’t available to us. Close to the pols and beach.
Julie M. Apr 2019
This condo had a great location within the Plantation resort — ground floor with a patio right next to the pool and beach. Nice stay.

Snowbird....here for 4-1/2 months. Twelfth year of return to same unit...so apparently love at first stay.
