Great time! Really enjoyed area of beach- quieter and not as crowded as it is next to state park. Condo could use some updates in kitchen and bathroom. We will look forward to coming again to Gulf Shores

Manager's Response

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Royal Palms 1407 does have an outstanding view from its beach front, wrap around balcony.

We loved Royal Palms #1407! Great location, so close to the beach! Nothing beats eating breakfast and looking out to see dolphins! Excellent balcony, although it was too windy to enjoy while we were there in March/April. Everything is in good repair. Highly recommend!! (One thing - the bunk beds really are meant for "kids." My 5'8" daughter slept diagonally in one of them, but my taller son opted for the pullout bed instead.)

Manager's Response

The view from the wrap around balcony at Royal Palms 1407 is probably the best on the island! We're so glad you enjoyed your spring vacation. You are correct about the bunks - they are youth-sized.

As a repeat client to Bender, we are always satisfied with the staff. Top performers Everytime. We were however, disappointed with this unit. It was clean, but many of the pictures advertised did not match the units current state. Most colors, furniture and overall look we're different, which really made choosing what you see online a waste of time. We did not complain, as I'm sure Bender would respond positively. The unit needed dishes cleaned to use, balcony furniture is broken or cushionless. Screen door is screenless, can opener is broken, dryer does not get hot. This unit is average with a few fixes. Will not rent this one again.

The weather was prefect , the condo was great as always..... We spent 2 full days at the pier and saw everything imaginable in the waater esp. at night, and the morning we were leaving I actually got to watch the Great Turtle volunteers release baby sea turtles into the gulf . There is no better place than Gulf Shores and The Royal Palms . We'll be back in May :)
The Ladies at Bender Reality are the best we've ever dealt with anywhere .

We have stayed in this condo three times. Was disappointed that it had not been redecorated yet after being told it would be. The decor needs to be lightened up. Beachy turquoise, greens, and blues would be Nice! Also, needs a screen on the sliding doors. The deck really is the best though.

What a great condo and great location. Right next to the State Park Pier and no crowds on the beach. The balcony is large with both shaded and sunny areas. Great for several couples to stay and gather at night for visiting or entertaining.
Condo has everything you could need. The Lazy Boy Sofa bed was so comfortable.
Will definitely be back !!!!!

My husband and I had an amazing getaway in Gulf Shores! This beachfront penthouse was budget friendly and had breathtaking views. The penthouse was pretty clean in all, although a good carpet cleaning in the bedroom would not hurt. The bedroom was a bit crowded with the decor, but if you don't mind side stepping between the bed and armoire or climbing across the bed to get to the other side, you'll be fine. The livingroom/dining/kitchen wall color is a bit darker than my taste for beach feel, but in all we weren't really there to stay cooped up in the condo so I can't complain. We arrived October 30th and departed November 2 and had 2 days of good weather before storms moved in on our final day.. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone that wants to fall in love with the beach life ? Thank you for a very memorable honeymoon/anniversary getaway.

Manager's Response

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Royal Palms 1407 can definitely help you fall in love with beach life! Be sure to call Bender Realty when you are ready to schedule a return trip to the Gulf Coast!

Loved the balcony! The condo decor needs to be "lightened up" (colors are rather dark and heavy). It wasn't as clean as I would have liked. I will plan to stay here again just for the view.

The unit's view is AMAZING!! That's what made us book this particular unit. The huge balcony is a major plus. The unit is a little outdate but not a big deal to us since we were there to spend time on the beach. It had basic kitchen appliances. Clean. Our 5 year old loved the indoor pool! Great experience with Bender Realty.

My husband and I came to Gulf Shores to celebrate my 50 th Birthday. We had a terrific time. We stayed at the Royal Palm on the 14th floor. We were able to watch and experience a lot of marine life. We actually got to watch sea turtles being born. Bender Realty were a joy to work with booking our condo and we plan on using them the next time.

This was my second stay at the Royal Palms, and I was lucky enough to get the west penthouse. We were on the 6th floor last year. The view from the penthouse unit is spectacular. The unit was clean. If I were making suggestions to the owners, I would update the decor a little to be more " that I mean lighter colors for the walls and furnishings, and perhaps upgrade the outdoor patio furniture to a padded love seat and chairs. Minor things though, as it looks fine. Need a bit bigger TV in the living area, and a DVD player would be nice. The great thing about Royal Palms is being next to the State Park makes it less crowded on the beach. Pool was fine, as was the hot tub. Convenient to all good places to eat. I will be back!! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is the decor and a very minor wastebaskets in the bathrooms, but no big deal.

Royal Palms 1407 was just stunning. The inside was beautiful just as the pictures showed. Well stocked kitchen if you plan on cooking (I would bring a good knife). The view from the wrap around balcony is stunning. Last condo in Gulf Shores. State Pier is just a short walk. Found lots of shells on our daily walks. Lists as a 6 person condo-3 or 4 would fit comfortably. Bender staff is always so sweet! They are the reason we rented again this year from Bender Realty. Only trouble we had was the front door was hard to lock/unlock, but that was just us not being used to that type lock. You can't go wrong with this condo and Bender Realty.

Our first time in Gulf Shores. Fell in love with the area. The condo looked just like it did on line. I love the fact when you book the condo, you get to see the actual unit you will stay in.

The best thing about this apartment is the enormous, private wrap around balcony and great views. Condo was nicely decorated and kitchen was furnished with all the standard things you would need to make most food. We ate in a lot so appreciated the well equipped kitchen although we could have used a pan and pot or two more since we did do so much cooking. Bathroom in the master bedroom is small. Hallway bathroom is somewhat larger. The only clock in the whole condo was on the microwave. It would be nice if there was one in the bedroom and waste paper baskets in the bathrooms. Location on the beach was great. The pier at the State park was within easy walking distance. Restaurants and shopping centers were very close by. We enjoyed walking down the beach to the Sea N Suds for lunch. Food and service there was very good. Outdoor pool was cold, indoor pool was an inviting temp and jacuzzi was hot! We enjoyed our beach vacation in Gulf Shores and would recommend a stay at the Royal Palms, especially this particular unit because of the unique balcony feature.

Absolutely the best vacation! We loved every minute of our stay and our view from the Penthouse was incredible. My husband and I spent hours on the balcony staring at the ocean. Just what the doctor ordered. We plan on coming back and I have already recommended Royal Palms to my co-workers.

awesome would like to stay there again one day!!

We were very pleased with our stay. Beautiful view from the balcony. Place is small but it was just two of us so it worked out well. Sea N Suds on the beach is within walking distance but unless your looking for a workout I would drive anywhere else. Place was clean other than foot pedal on trash can was broke so you had to open dirty metal lid with your hands. Last time we had stayed at crystal shores which was very nice but for the money this was a better deal. Any questions about anything you can always call the ladies at Bender they are very helpful.

Very much enjoyed laying out on the wrap around balcony! Private, quiet, plenty of room. Could hear the waves, feel ocean breeze and see people walking on the beach. Fabulous for those that do not want to walk down to the beach & carry chairs, coolers, etc! Will stay in Unit 1407 again! As far as clean, the unit floors were not very clean - there was dust on the bedroom furniture. Did not smell fresh.

Overall, the condo we rented was in good condition. The ceiling fan in the bedroom is in need of repair as well as the stoppers for the bathroom sinks. The ceiling fan light would not turn off so we had to unscrew light bulbs to run the fan as we slept. It made noise and was disruptive. This should be replaced. Other than that, the unit was fine.

The view was great. The inside was small and very crowded with a lot of furniture. Very cramped. The outdoor balcony was fabulous but not clean. There were cigarette butts and beers cans in the flower pots. And no internet access. The furnace filter was clogged. All in all it was okay. But it could be better cleaned. It would also be a lot roomer if they removed some furniture.

loved our stay overall. very disappointed that the heater in the hot tub wasnt working since it was too cold for the outside pool and even the indoor pool wasnt warm enough. out of the 8 light fixtures in the condo, needed 4 light bulbs - picked them up at the Bender Realty office without any problems. simply loved Betty Daniels - she was most pleasant to work with and made us wanta return in the future. whether the same condo or not wont matter, but definitely will contact Bender Realty again.

Amazing Views, doesn't get any better than this.

This was our 10th year visiting Gulf Shores for spring break so we obviously love it.

The only negative things would be that there were no spare light bulbs. One bulb in the bedroom (side table) light was just missing and the other burned out. Also there is only one table lamp in the main living area so unless you want to be blinded by the ceiling fan light there isn't enough ambient light. Also, the little hallway leading up to the condo had several BIG water bug carcasses which freaked me out and one semi alive one inside the condo when you first walked in. But I will say those were the only ones I saw. No other little visitors, so phew :) Loved the condo, Love Gulf Shores and the weather was PERFECT! We'll be back!

Would not recommend this unit - bedroom carpet is filthy. Furniture in unit is much too large for living space. Size of coffee table makes it almost impossible to use hide a bed. Dishes, etc are better than some of the units I have stayed in over past few years.

The Royal Palms Condos are the BEST location on the Beach... We had to stay out of the water and stay back a little ways on the beach, but overall we still had a GREAT time!! There is NO smell at the beach.. the view is still beautiful, the waves were huge this year and we wish we were still there!!!!!! There is plenty to do with the various attractions ( we love Waterville.. all the waterslides, wave pool, rollercoaster, lazy river, putt putt golf, go carts.. No where else can you go ALL DAY for $30... The State Park put on a fantastic fireworks show from the pier.If you have not made plans then do and if you have them, then keep them.. They need our support in the bad times much as the good times. Gulf Shores has given us SO MANY great vacations that we did not mind a VERY SMALL sacrifice.We are SOOOOO VERY GLAD we went!! God Bless to all the vendors and residents who depend on our tourism every year!

We had very small tarballs washing up June 7. Tuesday and Wednesday the water was great. There was a lot of dead seaweed washing ashore, but crews were slowly cleaning up the high tide lines. We left Thursday morning right before the oil started coming ashore. I hate to see our beautiful beaches trashed by the oil, sadly they will never be the same. I feel so sorry for the people living along the coast and the wildlife that will end up getting killed by the oil.

I loved the location of this building. It is the last building before the state park so the the beach is much less crowded than the rest of the beach. The furniture in the unit really needs a good cleaning or updating. It looked dirty and I had to cover the sofa and chair with a sheet so I could sit on it without being grossed out. The bedroom is very crapmped and dark because of the size of the furniture. The kitchen amenities were fine for what we wanted to do, but not if we had wanted to cook "real meals" There were a few maintenance issues with the unit. I called Bender and they had someone there almost immediately to look after it. The balcony on this unit is huge and has a beautiful view. I would stay in this building again because of it's great location, but I would try a different unit. I would definitely use Bender Realty again- they are very helpful and check in was quick.

I LOVE Royal Palms!

I would highly recommend Royal Palms condo. to visitors to Gulf Shores. I like the access to the state park beach and fishing pier. There was not any signs of oil damage to the beach or in the water during our May 8-11 stay. This beach is so much nicer than the other beach (Biloxi, MS) we visited.
