Gulf State Park

What a beautiful beachfront view from our room! The room faced directly to the Gulf, almost entirely unobstructed. The bed was surprisingly comfortable, and the staff made sure we had plenty of pillows. The resort is well-appointed, with several restaurants, a gift shop and an office to book any type of water adventures you might want. We only ate at Latitude 30 this time, but it was quite good for the price. We didn't eat at Voyager's this time, but we have in the past, and it was one of the most memorable dining experiences I've ever had. It's also very close to many great shops at San Roc Cay, including some exceptional restaurants. The white sand beaches of Orange Beach simply can't be beat. Make sure to reserve lounge chairs and umbrella on the beach; at $30 a day they're not cheap but absolutely worth it, especially if you burn easily. Coffee service in lobby ends at 9am, and no other beverages in lobby - disappointing from a full service resort. Despite booking in advance, our room was not ready at 4pm as promised, and the staff did not offer any perks as a result of our inconvenience. The in-room coffee was not an award winner either, but seemed to be somehow better on the second day. Has the typical awful pillows as most hotels do, though I would have expected something slightly better from this resort.
Slept great in the bed. Very comfortable pillows and mattress, and the room was very clean. The view of the gulf overlooking the pool was gorgeous. The piano player in the lobby was great and many people enjoyed dancing in the evening. One of the elevators was broken, so their was only one working on our side. Their was a retreat that weekend with hundreds of loud and obnoxious teenagers. We hopped on the elevator after waiting for it for about 10 minutes and the 10 kids that were on it had pressed all of the elevator floor buttons before they got off as a prank. It was really really annoying. We finally made it to the 9th floor where our room was and unloaded. When we went outside to relax on the balcony the kids at the pool and on the balconies across the hotel on the other side had laser pointers flashing and shining in our eyes. We saw the potential of having an enjoyable time had everything worked and the kids not been there but unfortunately we did not enjoy our stay at all. We wanted to eat breakfast the next morning at their restaurant but it was so chaotic and crowded the wait was too long. We ended up going to Waffle House and leavaing early.
