Gulf Shores Plantation: A Family-Friendly Resort

Posted by Rachel Kelly on Monday, December 17th, 2018 at 2:24pm.

Covering an impressive 40 acres along the Fort Morgan Peninsula, Gulf Shores Plantation has been a longtime vacation destination on the Alabama coast. For over 30 years, this gulf front family-friendly resort has been home to wonderful and memorable vacations with 4,000 feet of pristine beaches and an endless list of amenities for guests to enjoy year-round. Gulf Shores Plantation is made up of several condominiums with each offering nicely furnished condos comfortably accommodating any size family or group. The resort's initial development, Gulf Shores Plantation East, was built in 1983 and features a series of beachside buildings with 1 or 2-bedroom condos overlooking the gulf, pool area, or property grounds. A year later, Royal Gulf Beach & Racquet Club (which is now called Plantation Dunes) opened its doors housing a total of 141 units with 1-, 2-, and 3-BR floor plans in addition to efficiency condos known as sun suites. Located on the first floor of Plantation Dunes is Sassy Bass Island Grill, one of the several dining options found in the Fort Morgan area. Sassy Bass Grill offers a great breakfast and lunch menu along with a variety of tropical drinks and seafood dishes. more

Plantation Palms is located in the middle of the resort and consists of 84 units in 1-3 bedroom layouts ranging from 590 to 1,095 square feet in size. Plantation Palms condos are favored vacation rentals due to every unit having direct and unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. On the western end of the resort sits Resort Conference Center, also known as Plantation West, which features townhome-style residences in a staggered orientation with views of the gulf or lushly landscaped courtyards. On the other side of Plantation West along Plantation Blvd lies a group of beach homes called Plantation Place Cottages. These duplexes are ideal for vacationers desiring more personal space and privacy than a condo while providing full access to the resort's amenities and beaches which are just a short stroll away. No matter which Gulf Shores Plantation property booked, guests are guaranteed an exceptional vacation experience filled with long-lasting memories among friends and family.
