We have rented this she met many times over the past years it is one of the best on the beach. This year with coven 19 we did bring our own sanitizing wipes and my thoughts sprays and we did re clean everything that we touched when we arrived and before we left. I was really surprised to see that this year the condo was not as clean as previous years. The stove and oven was not cleaned at all there is a grease splattered all over the stove and up under the wall and the oven still had aluminum foil left in it from the previous renters. Also previous renters had spilt something red and splattered into the creases of the cabinets so when you open the door it had read sticky stuff all over the place which I did clean. over all We did enjoy our stay. And we will be returning next year.
Royal Palms 1403 is indeed a repeat-worthy condo with its phenomenal view of the Gulf. We apologize for the housekeeping issues you experienced and would have gladly come addressed them. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

The unit was very clean and comfortable, nicely furnished with great view of the beach. Bigger balcony then most units in this complex. Nice dining area would seat up to 6. One odd thing is that one bedroom did not share ventilation with the main unit. It had a hotel style wall unit to control air and heat in that room. It worked well and we were comfortable once we realized that room was controlled separately.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores! Royal Palms 1403 is a wonderful condo from which to enjoy the restaurants and attractions. And of course, the stunning view of the Gulf from the wraparound balcony is incomparable!

Another great stay @ royal palms

Very good experience. Only 2 negatives were the condo was so, so clean (master shower & edges everywhere needed attention. Also, one day we came back & someone had been in our unit. No notice or call ahead. Apparently they were supposed to get into it the week prior & couldnt. The issue was no notice or note left telling us who was in the room. There is no safe in the room so having anyone in there when we are not there without a heads up is not ok. <br/><br/>Aside from the 2 smaller issues, we would definetly stay @ royal palms again.<br/><br/>Best view in gulf shores for sure.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in Royal Palms 1403. It is indeed a wonderful condo - best view on the island and very nicely appointed. We apologize for our failure to notify you of the need to enter your condo during your stay. That is not our standard procedure, and we regret the unpleasantness it created. Please give us a call when you are ready to re book this fabulous condo!

This unit has to be the BEST ON THE BEACH! The view and balcony are indescribable! It truly is a home away from home, right on the beach; convenient to everything; and did I mention the view? Watching the waves and sunset from that balcony is truly one of the best experiences you will have. This is our new home away from home!!
We agree with EVERYTHING you said! The view alone, from the wraparound balcony, make this condo worth renting. But add the nice furnishings and property amenities, and Royal Palms 1403 is THE condo to book!

Nice location and enjoyed the outdoor space. It was a surprise to find a property person in the condo when we arrived (after 5 PM). He didn't explain what he was doing. The owners need to know that the dryer does not work-no heat. Property description is accurate.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in the lovely Royal Palms 1403. On big turnaround days, our inspection staff does often work after 5, making sure all units are guest-ready. Thank you for your input, and we will check on that dryer!

Beautiful views! Spotless unit, very professional management company. Unit needs more seating in front of television since it sleeps six and there are only comfortable seats for four. It also needs a few more items such as utensils for non stick cookware in the kitchen. Washer and dryer need updating. Awesome week and we would recommend it for other vacationers!

Everything was good. The only thing is was the leak in the second bedroom. With that being said we enjoyed the stay this was the second time at this property.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores! Royal Palms 1403 has one of the best views on the island, with its beach front, wraparound balcony. The managing company for Royal Palms has worked hard to resolve the leak, and we are thankful it did not get in the way of your enjoyment of this lovely condo. Don't forget to call Bender Realty when you are ready for a future Gulf Coast getaway!

We did not realize prior to our arrival that we had rented a penthouse. It was great and I enjoyed watching from the balcony people on the beach, fish swimming in the water close to the beach, using my camera lenses the boats, etc. far out in the Gulf. We enjoyed the beach, sand, water, etc.
We are so pleased that you had such a good time in Gulf Shores. With its unobstructed view of the Gulf, Royal Palms 1403 has one of the best balconies on the coast. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready to repeat the experience!

Had a wonderful week. Condo was wonderful, views from the top are beautiful. Does need a new coffee maker and a bigger TV in living room, might help to just put TV on the wall instead of in the big entertainment center that takes up lots of room and limits view of TV.
We're so pleased that you enjoyed your vacation in Gulf Shores. Royal Palms 1403 has one of the island's best views. Please keep Bender Realty in mind when you start making plans for a trip in 2016!

Beautiful view and we had a wrap around balcony, simply gorgeous! Property is in need of some repair, showers need work, tile floors need a good cleaning and some outdoor furniture needs to be replaced, we were unable to use some out door chairs because they were completely worn out. Should be thrown out before someone gets hurt. Lambert's a great meal, but go hungry! Cactus Cantina Mexican , great food. Can't forget Lulu's. All and all great time. Been coming a long time and will be back! The weather was great.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores and at Royal Palms. The view from unit 1403's wrap around balcony just can't be topped. Thank you for your input; we will certainly address those issues. Be sure to call Bender Realty when you are ready to come back to the Gulf Coast!

It was amazing! We've never stayed in a condo before and it turned out to be a great experience. The condo was beautiful and had fantastic views of the ocean. It was quiet and very clean. The staff (pool people and security guards were all we saw) were very courteous and kind. We met another tenant who owns a condo and she was friendly and sweet as well. The price was comparable to a hotel stay, yet the experience was much, much better. Having your own kitchen, washer and dryer and all the amenities was such a blessing! I would highly recommend it. One thing I might suggest is to check the temperature on the water heater. It certainly became hot enough to scald...fine for adults who can react, but worrisome for kids. Other than that (and the loud bathroom vent in the master) it was absolutely perfect.
We're so glad your first condo vacation was such a positive one. A condo, with its fully-equipped kitchen and washer and dryer, is certainly the way to go. Royal Palms in particular has an outstanding view. Call us when you're ready to repeat the experience!

This unit had the best location of any we have stayed in at Gulf Shores. The view was incredible - overlooking the state park and not having to look at another condo. The bedrooms were good size and each had a door to the balcony. The only negative was that the unit was darker than we would have liked. We were expecting beachy furniture, not heavy dark wood in the living area and a jungle theme in the bedroom.

BEAUTIFUL VIEW FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

This condo is absolutely amazing. The view from the balcony was so great that we would have stayed there the whole vacation. We could even see dolphins from it. We went in August so there were quite a few jelly fish in the water, but it they were easily spotted. The condo is very spacious as well and we felt like we had a lot of privacy being next to the state park. We will definitely be staying here again.

I have never rented a condo rental any better than this. We had so many activities planned while at the beach. However, we simply could not pull ourselves away from that balcony. We did manage to pull ourselves away for one day to bike ride the backcountry trail of the state park. Absolutely the best paved bike trail ever. We will definitely be back and promise ourselves to do the zip line across the street on our next visit. We just could not leave the balcony on this visit.

Still a great view. Cleaning still a problem as there was dust and dirt on top of the refrigerator. The bed in the first room needs to be replaced as it is worn out. Make sure when you stay here to always put the wooden bar in the sliding doors as it will not properly lock. Nice to see some new balcony furniture! Overall a great place to stay and Bender staff is really great to work with!

We will definitely stay here again and recommend this property to anyone that wants a large balcony with a view with 2 nice bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Indoor/outdoor pool and on the quiet end of the beach. Very relaxing.

Bender is wonderful when we call with a concern! Elevators not dependable on windy days--lots of windy days on the beach! This unit is spacious and we enjoyed our stay; however, the condo is in need of some TLC: fresh paint job--banged up walls and chipped paint throughout; one bedroom needs work on ceiling; annoyingly automatic loud fans in baths; slippery tubs, no screens on sliding doors, disgustingly rusty air return, draws don't work in one bedroom.

We really enjoyed our stay during October, 2012. Some of the outdoor furniture had been replaced and was very comfortable. The shower doors kept going off track and that could be a real issue if a young or elderly person had a problem with them, since they are made of glass and are very heavy. They might consider replacing them with a shower curtain, it would certainly be safer. The folks at Bender Realty were always very helpful, would definitely recommend them. Overall, our stay was wonderful and we would definitely go back.

We've stayed at this location for a number of years because it has great view from the balcony. They are making improvements to the unit but some of them are long overdue. The cleaning still is an issue simply because it does not get cleaned like it should. You can find dust build up on the walls and ceiling fans,dirt around the bathtub which could be cleaned with some bathroom cleaner and if they would look around the tops of the bathtub they would see sunflower seeds where someone decided to put there after they were done with them.The floors are just plain dirty.Still a good location to stay for the view.

Loved the location, the view, and we just felt like we were at home. We also love working through Bender Realty, they are so nice. I just referred a patient from our office to give them a call for reservations at The Royal Palms. Oh and also I left my luggage on the elevator (one piece) and the security office was fast to call and let me know they found it. I highly reccomend the condos and Bender Realty!!!!!

What an amazing condo with an amazing view. We were a little worried because some of the previous reviews had stated that it was not clean. They have changed cleaning companies and it was spotless. Bender Reality was great, fast and efficient. The condo is the last one before the state park so it was much less crowed on our end. If you are coming to cook, you will need to bring a few things like a cutting board.

The location and amenities of the Royal Palms is wonderful. BUT the filth in the condo is another story. Our feet were dirty walking on the floors from day one. Bathrooms need to be scoured. The same old rug stains as last year. Furniture and lampshades in bedrooms were full of dust. We cleaned the place ourselves. The cost of cleaning keeps going up but the quality is going down, why? I love this unit and maybe someone will read this and make some changes for next year. I rented it again for the shrimp festival but will bring my cleaning supplies.

Wow! We were blessed with GREAT weather and a GREAT condo. The view has got to the best on Gulf Shores beaches. We were a little concerned regarding the oil spill, but the water and sand were fantastic! Can't wait to get back next year.

Excellent, will stay there again

We enjoyed our stay overall, anyway we were not able to go in the gulf because of the oil. The condo was great, but I would suggest taking inventory of the kitchen. It is lacking several basic things, and also some repairs are a little overdue. The utensil drawer is completely broken in the kitchen and actually ended up falling on my daughter's foot. In the bathroom, also, the drawer pulls need repair. We love Gulf Shores, and love this condo, and had a great time!
