If you want to stay in a luxury condo on the beach in the State of Alabama, then pack your bathing suit and head to Turquoise Place Resort in Orange Beach. The beachfront resort has all that you need for the perfect beach getaway vacation on Alabama's beautiful white sandy beach.
Turquoise Place provides guests with luxurious accommodations just steps away from Alabama's sugar-white beaches. Travel + Leisure Magazine rated Turquoise Place as the best hotel in Alabama.
Walking into Turquois Place, it was easy to see why it earned the number one spot. The resort is luxurious and offers guests a home away from home. The resort has 3, 4, and 5 bedroom residences, all with plenty of room for guests to spread out and relax.
I have stayed in a couple of units in Turquoise Place and hope to stay there again in the future.
The three-bedroom units offer 2400 square feet of living space and unparalleled luxury on the beach. Let me take you on a tour of where I have stayed.
Guest Bedroom #1 (Unit D-1302)
Each bedroom had its own private bath. The master bathroom was spa-like and had a large glass-enclosed shower, a jacuzzi tub, a double vanity, and a large walk-in closet.
The Kitchen and Dining Area
The gourmet state-of-the-art kitchens has a gas range and SubZero refrigerator. (Each kitchen at the resort comes with a starter amenity package which includes a package of coffee and coffee filter, a single-use dishwasher detergent, and a trash bag.)
The unit had a dining table that seats eight, as well as bar stools at the kitchen counter. Plus, there was a dining table outdoor so that guests can dine out on the balcony while watching the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico.
Near the kitchen was a wet bar with a wine refrigerator to keep your bottles at the perfect temperature.
The Living Area
The living area was set up nicely with a sofa, loveseat, and chair with views of the ocean.
For those days when the temperature takes a dip, there's a gas fireplace.
The Private Balcony
Each unit comes equipped with a small outdoor kitchen with an outdoor grill and sink, as well as a hot tub and a glorious view of the Gulf of Mexico.
The expansive gulf-facing balconies are a great place to sit back and relax. (That's why you are there, right?)
And for those wet swimsuits, there is a solution - a washing machine and dryer in the unit. With the washer and dryer, there's no need to overpack. (Returning home with dirty clothes is optional.)
The Spectrum Club Lounge
Resort guests who book directly through Spectrum enjoy the use of the 5th-floor lounge. Guests are provided with wrist bands that function as a key to both their condo as well as the lounge.
During the morning, breakfast is served. Items available are scrambled eggs and toppings, waffles, oatmeal, muffins, and fruit. Coffee and juice are also available.
Breakfast is served in the lounge from 7 AM until 10 AM.
At noon, the lounge opens up and guests can play billiards, table tennis, board games, and more - it's all included.
Change of Pace Poolside Bar and Grill
The resort has a casual outdoor restaurant at the bottom of the C tower by the outdoor pools. It's open from 11 AM until 6 PM seasonally and is a great place to grab a bite or adult beverage. Resort guests who charge their purchases to their room receive 10% off. The prices are affordable and the convenience cannot be beaten.
Other amenities at Turquoise Place include a 450-foot lazy river located on the 4th floor of D-tower, an indoor pool, sauna and steam room, tennis courts, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
Another perk of booking directly through Spectrum is that they provide you with beach towels to use during your stay. In our 3 bedroom unit, we were provided with 6 really nice towels. (This mom appreciated the fact that I did not have to find space to pack beach towels in our luggage.)
One of the best features is the quick and easy access to the beach. Turquoise Place is right on the beach.
