“An OK, not great stay at Parrotopia”
Our family of 5 (my wife, our young daughter, my in-laws, and myself) recently stayed at Parrotopia for 3 nights. This was our second stay at the Purple Parrot complex, our first in this unit. The complex itself has some advantages -- the pool is amazing, and that's the biggest asset. The tiki bar is no longer in service, but you can bring your own drinks/food to the pool, so no problems there. For the size of the complex, and of the pool, there aren't a lot of lounge chairs. Although we didn't see all chairs taken during our Sun-Tues stay, I could easily see it happening on a busy weekend. The complex is not on the beach, so no sunset views or walking to the beach. I consider that a con; but as a tradeoff, it's cheaper than beachfront condos! The location is still a bit of negative, for me. You feel a bit separated from the beachfront areas, particularly the Orange Beach (15 minute drive) and Gulf Shores areas (25-30 minutes). The Purple Parrot is really on the outskirts of Pensacola itself; the Walmart is only 5 minutes away. It feels more like "town" and less like "beach," if that makes any sense. This unit didn't compare well to the other condo we've used at Purple Parrot, nor to the other condos we've rented in Orange Beach/Perdido in other complexes. Cleanliness was a bit of an issue -- many kitchen items (pots, pans, glasses) were spotted, stained, etc. Linens -- particularly the towels -- were threadbare, and barely enough for the three bathrooms. Indeed, one of the full baths had no bath mat, and there was no hand towel in the downstairs half bath. Several of the towels had noticeable rips/holes, and all were as thin as could be. This unit also had no close parking spaces -- at many of the town homes in PP, you can pull right up to the porch. Because this one is located on a curve, you can't do that. Nearest spot was ~100 feet away, and we often had to park further. I wouldn't be in a hurry to stay at this particular unit again.
“A very nice weekend getaway”
We really enjoyed our stay at Parrotopia. The house was decorated so nice and beachy. The pool was all that we were expecting and we enjoyed the hot tub too. We will be back.
“All the comforts of home plus warm climate and the seashore.”
Parrotopia was my winter oasis for March 2012. My children and granchildren enjoyed it immensely; on rainy days the indoor pool and exercise equipment were appreciated. The proximity to Pensacola snd its attractions was another plus for us . I so much enjoyed the beach walks, the nature trail etc. We found it to be tastefully decorated . Only thing I missed was a crock pot
Response from the manager Thanks for the review. Crock pot is now on the list for things that the owner will need to bring down when they come to the condo next time! Hope to see you again soon! Kindest Regards, JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager
“Comfort in the sun”
Parrotopia was utopia in the sun. The unit was wonderfully stocked and well appointed. I'll return to enjoy this enperience again.
Response from the manager Thanks for the great feedback. Please let us know what we can do to make your next visit a 5-star stay! Kindest Regards, JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager
“A very affordable and awesome vacation resort.”
It felt like we were in the Bahamas with the oasis that surrounding us. The villa cozy and great. We weren't right by the beach, but it was only a few minutes drive away. The pool and surrounding area was huge and very tropical.
“Almost Home away From Home”
My stay at the purple parrot was different from the last experience in 2008 when I got married there. I found that the staff was still awesome but I was suprised to see that more condo's were built but was extremely disappointed that additional parking was not built as well. Otherwise our stay was nice.
“We love parrotopia”
This is our second time at Parrotopia, and this time we were here in summer and were able to take advantage of the outdoor pool and porches. The beds were great and we love the decor including the big purple couch. We even spent one evening playing scrabble. We will be back.
“2011 summer vacation”
over all very nice place. I was very unhappy when my 7 year old left his ds games that he just got for his birthday and the management didnt get back to me. I still dont know if they found it or not. Really sad for my son he spent all of his money for the games and we know for a fact they were left there. The management did tell me that the cleaners were very trust worthy but not in our case.
Response from the manager Thanks for the kind words concerning the place. It is regrettable that the games were lost, however I am perturbed regarding the questioned integrity. I personally walked through the condo, in addition to the housekeepers who have turned in things ranging from wedding bands and video games in the past, and found no ds games in the condo. I personally looked under all of the furniture, in the closets, in the couch, and everywhere else I could think to look. I am certain that I would have found the games had they been left in the condo. I want all of our guests to have a good time and favorable opinion of the resort when leaving which is why I try to go the extra length in a instances like these, however in this case the games were lost elsewhere as they were not in the condo.

We stayed here for 7 days and everything was great. We went to the beach everyday which was only 3 mintues down the road. The beach was beautiful and so was our rental. We will def. be back next year.
“Great place to bring family and kids.”
Would have liked to have a full set of dishes and silverware b/c we had to run the dishwasher practically after every meal since there were only 6-7 plates. The place was not ready by check in at 4:00, but otherwise, had no c/o and would return again.
