When checking in, one of the managers was very kind and helped answer any questions we had and I was impressed. But by day to that all changed. By day two I was sitting on the balcony, discussing plans for the evening with my group, when a women, who was clearly irritated, approached us. She proceed to yell saying we...

Hi Kanasgroup, I am so sorry you had this experience! One week ago we were in the middle of one of the most rowdy group of Spring Breakers we have ever seen. It made the national news. The end result being that an emergency meeting of the Gulf Shores City Counsel was convened and alcohol was banned from the beaches....

LIke some of the other reviewers, we used a timeshare trade to stay in a one bedroom unit. It definitely was a lower end timeshare but as the title said it was clean. The bed was a double, so slightly snug for those of us used to a queen bed. The sofa bed was very uncomfortable. No way to avoid...

Hi, We appreciate your review. We are not a high end high rise but more of a cottage style, "Old Florida" type of place. I am sorry your unit was missing the cutting board and non-stick pan as we keep extra items in the office and could have brought them to you. Our house keepers take pride in their work...

During our summer trip a few months ago, we drove past this little quaint resort and decided to plan a fall trip. We loved the location, within walking distance to several great restaurants, mini mart store, souvenir shops, and the beach! Very Beach like feel throughout the resort, pool area very nice, perfect for families. The beds were very comfortable,...

I just returned from a Gulf Shores vacation where my elderly mother and I stayed at Paradise Isle. I think it should be noted on the front end that every unit here is an upstairs unit on stilts and there is NO elevator, making it pretty tough for some guests to maneuver. Upon entering the one bedroom unit we got...

Hi Mary D., You are correct, all of our units are upstairs as we are built on pilings. We are sorry there were problems with your room as they are cleaned and inspected before arrival. Room issues are addressed immediately with the whatever it takes attitude by our staff. I am glad you enjoyed our location as we are right...

I stayed for the first time this week, and I was pleasantly surprised! For the cost of the room, I was a little anxious. You could tell that some of the things were a little dated, and the pullout couch was not comfortable at all. HOWEVER, this is DEFINITELY going to be my yearly stop! I loved going to the...

Been staying here since I was a child. The pool has gotten better, but otherwise still the same. It's a good place for families and travelers on a budget. You have to cross a main road to get to the beach, but there is public access just across the street.

We have stayed at this resort 4 times. It is a very good place to stay. The resort is very clean and reasonable. Rooms have a full bath and kitchen. Kathy and Lori the managers are both very nice and helpful. Right across the street from the beach. Will definitely keep coming back. :)

Stayed in one of the units for a week a couple of years ago. It was clean and adequate for 3 adults and 2 children. Had everything we needed but no frills, which was reflected in the price. Had to cross a busy street to get to the beach, but there was a traffic light there which made it safer...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are across the road from the public access to the beach. Great location. Our buildings are on pilings so there are a few steps to climb. We offer a towel exchange on Wednesday and also have a coin op laundry room. We are not a high-rise or a huge complex, more of a quaint "old Florida" kind of place! Great place for families as we have full kitchens in case you want to save some money and eat in. Our pool is huge and in the middle of the complex with our hot tub. Bahama Bob's is across the street and we are within walking distance to The Hangout and other businesses. Paradise Isle received the RCI Hospitality award for 2014,2015,2016,2017. We are under new management as of 02/2014. ... more   less
