Booked tis condo through Young's Suncoast based on the TripAdvisor reviews and pictures online. We were very impressed with the condo! It was clean, spacious, and contained everything we needed for our 5 night vacation in Gulf Shores. The gulf front view from the balcony was awesome! We spent a lot of time there early in the morning and late evening.
We didn't use the pool or hot tub, it was pretty crowded during our stay, but swimming in the ocean can't be beat.
The Wi-Fi was easy to connect to which my kids were happy about, and there were TV's in the two bedrooms which was a plus.
I would definitely recommend this condo and would stay there again.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?
A Wonderful Experience!

Enjoyed our stay at Crystal Towers West. The condo was excellent and everything was great. I won my stay through our local TV station and was pleasantly surprised at how helpful Lorri from Youngs Suncoast Vacation rentals was in securing my reservation on such a short notice. In this world of diminishing customer service, Lorri was very pleasant to work with. I plan to work with her in the future to secure reservations for our family in Gulf Shores! The unit was nice, location on the beach was excellent, pools and hot tub were great!

Best Vacation Ever
Left on 06/17/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | Dawn Shell
We were on the verge of backing out of our vacation due to the oil spill but decided not too and I am so thankful now. We brought my parents with us on the vacation and it was the best time we have ever had. The condo was amazeing. Everything was very clean and very well stocked. The only thing I have to say is I wish they had more pots and pans for cooking. We loved sitting on the balcony every morning and eating breakfast while watching dolphins play in the water. I loved leaving my door open and listing to the waves each night as I feel asleep. My son had said he would not swim in the "Sea' but by the end of the week we had to drag him out. Crystal Shores West was wonderful. We will be back many times and look forward to our next vacation.

Our stay at Crystal Shores West was wonderful. The condo was very comfortable and felt like a second home. It was nice to start and end every day on the balcony listening to the waves. I would definitely stay at Crystal Shores West again as long as the price stays reasonable.

condo was just perfect for kids; leather furniture.Did have trouble with the elevators; one was broken You would think such a big building would have more elevators.

The unit was excellent. It was very clean and had the appearance of being very new with nice appliances and modern kitchen. The view of the ocean was outstanding. We would certainly stay there again. Several restaurants are close by.

The room was fine except the a/c had to be turn down real low to make it comfortable. The pool around Crystal shores west needs some work and the pool always looked dirty. Never saw anyone cleaning. The steps down to the beach were missing ok for us. But for someone older it was a step down.

We had a wonderful time! The home was very relaxing with a Georgus View. Everything we wanted in the beach, pool and the home.

We decided to visit Crystal Shores West after coming across a "special rate" through Youngs Suncoast website. Overall, the quality of the condo was as described on the website; however, I will say this particular condo has very uncomfortable furniture namely beds and sofa. In addition, the floors in the condo were extremely dirty and my 11 month old "crawler" and 4 year old kept dirty knees, feet and clothes throughout the entire stay. The pool area, although adequate, lacked size. Beach was a reasonable distance from the pool. We have previously booked through Youngs Suncoast, and our experience was a positive one. This time, we were disappointed by overall price as related to amenities and comfort.
Great Condo but.....

My family and friends enjoyed the property itself. The pool was great for the 3 year old that was with us. However I felt what I would say as unnecessary pressure from the Guard and office workers. Men do not like to wear armbands, I am sure that is a safety feature however the father of the 3rd old was harrassed while watching his child play in the water. It was the 3rd day so we were not new guests. His arm band was in the pool bag however he didn't want to take his eyes off the child. The parking was another issue that I faced. I had a brand new vehicle purchased less than a month. The first day my husband parked over the line trying to make sure our car was not hit. We saw a hummer that was parked so close to the pillar they must have had to crawl out the passenger side. Considering the car cost multiple times the vacation, I didn't want any dings. So the next day, I made sure to check the lines and see that he was parked within the lines. Well that night we found another ticket. So I went to the office, the guard proceeded to tell me that he was having my vehicle towed because it was over the line. I argued with him but he kept saying I was not telling the truth. So even though the room, the location, the beach, etc was great, we kind of felt harrassed for non-important issues.
We have rented from Young properties multiple times and will definetly go back.
