Opportunities for improvement
Although you have a beautiful facility and location, Customer service is not your Priority. We checked in late on 3/30/04. The one bellhop was busy and would not allow us to take a luggage cart to unload ourselves. We had to wait for him to return!! All we wanted was a bed... There is no internet access in rooms. DSL in the lounge did not work. We haven't stayed in a hotel without internet for a long time! In January, our hotel had wireless internet. Parking a trailer in the lot was not allowed even though there was plenty of room (lot was never full). We were told to park across the street, which was a 4 lane with no crossing lights. Didn't seem safe to us! If customer service counted to you, your staff would have authority to individualize and 'break rules' if it didn't inconvenience others. ie, let us use a luggage cart and park in the lot (even if it was at the far end). If customer service, and our future business and recommendations, matter to you, internet will be added to rooms and we will need some assurance that your philosophy of service is improved. Thanks for listening. Cheryl
Best Place On The Beach!
PBR is THE best place to stay when on vacation in Orange Beach. Because of its location at the easternmost end of the island, the beach you have access to almost feels private -- even during the early summer months (my preferred time to visit the area). I have stayed at PBR on two occasions (both times in late May/early June) and both times I was impressed at how intimate the place felt, despite its size. The rooms were clean and kept that way, and I never got the feeling the walls were paper-thin (unlike some other places I've visited). The staff is friendly and always available. Room service is quick and courteous and their cheeseburgers have become an indulgence I can't resist when I stay there. Foley, with its many outlet stores, is only a few minutes away, and if you don't mind a slightly longer drive to the west, you can visit Bon Secor National Wildlife Refuge for hiking and birdwatching, and Ft. Morgan for general exploring, at the very opposite end of the peninsula.
Great Family Resort
I just got back from my vacation at Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach, Alabama and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It is the perfect resort for families with small children. You can go to & from the beach, wet & dirty, to your room and no one fusses about you getting the floors wet or getting sand on the floor. This was the most important thing that I loved about the resort, since I have a 3 year old, it's kind of hard to get her back & forth without getting the place a little wet. Anyway, the service was great, the view from the room was breathtaking, and the atmosphere was excellent. I would urge anyone to stay here if you have small children. A perfect family resort! I loved it!
Loyal to this place!
I've been coming here since 1987 and have never been disappointed. Every time we try another hotel we miss the service and grounds of Perdido Beach.When given the choice between a week at a condo or 3 days at Perdido Beach Resort my thirteen year old son always chooses Perdido Beach.
Excellent location for the entire family! The beach is awesome with plenty of room for everyone. The pools are great too. The breakfast buffet was our family's favorite meal.
Forget Destin! This is the place!!!!1
Since our first trip here, we don't even go to Destin. The hotel is wonderful, and the beach is huge, and gorgeous. It just doesn't get any better than this. There is so much fun to be had, and everything is so nice in Orange Beach/ Gulf Shores.We like to stay at the Perdido Beach Resort because it is across the road from Zeke's Marina, we deep sea fish off of a boat at Zeke's. Perdido Beach Resort is the place to stay! Fun fireworks show on the 4th of July also.
Every 4th of July
I've been coming here since I was four. Now I'm eighteen. I come here every 4th of July with my family and friends. I've even decided to come here for my Senior Trip with my boyfriend. It will be his first. I can't wait to get here! My friend I brought last year, a first-timer, thought it was PARADISE! It sure is. I couldn't imagine anywhere better. I'll make sure my children share the same joys here as I've had.
Wonderful! Cant wait to come back next year!
We checked into the resort after having a bad experience at one of the other hotels and they saved our trip from being ruined. What a beautiful place, one of the highlights of our stay was lounging by the pool that has live music and a bar with mixed drinks and it was just fabulous. I highly recommend this place as it was beautiful and they were all so friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. I can't wait till we can go back again.
Wonderful Breakfast Buffet!
I stayed at The Perdido Beach Resort in February of 2002... My experience was indeed a memorable one. The staff was very friendly, it was quiet, relaxing, and I felt like I had the whole place to myself! The beach was beautiful, and clean, as were the rooms. As a food connoisseur, I especially enjoyed the breakfast buffet! My favorites from the buffet were the made to order scrambled eggs, and the corned beef hash, which had huge pieces of corned beef, potatoes, and onions in it. Mouth-watering!All in all, I was very impressed with The Perdido Beach Resort, and I would return for the food alone!~Chef Tel Millah~
Great place to stay
We stayed at the PBR in Oct 2001. We caught the end of a hurricane, so the weather wasn,t great. Also due to the events last year, there were very few people around. This was evident mainly at night. However, we had a great time at the hotel and found the staff very friendly. We were fortunate that the Shrimp Festival coincided with our visit and that is an experience that I would highly recommend. All in all a great holiday and we will be returning in Oct 2002.

We had a great time relaxing at Fort Pickens. Nita went for a nice long bicycle ride along the coast. She was flying - until it was time to turn around. Suddenly the truth dawned - she was flying because the wind was helping. The return trip was against the wind!
I went exploring access points to the beach and the actual fort. Saw my first and so ...

Thanks for sharing our wonderful beach vacation. We've had a lot of fun, and if I could've custom ordered the weather, I would have requested exactly the weather we've had. Perfect.
Big hugs to all from the Gulf Shores Plantation, Pat
... and very thankful for the opportunity to meet each of the new brethren I met each day. Not only did I meet new people, I also met three new divers, and heard of three more who were in attendance!
Next year we are hoping to organize a group dive. Daniel and I are part of a dive group back home, and I think it would be marvelous to maintain a Church dive group, to add a new dimension to a "judgement free" sport. God opens doors when we least expect it.
