Swank new condos on a sugar white beach, minutes from Gulf State Park
One of the newer additions to the Orange Beach area, Escapes! to The Shores opened in 2008. The condominium resort fuses the conveniences of a hotel (front desk, on-site fitness center) with the luxuries of home (a kitchen or kitchenette in every unit, grills down by the beach). Guests choose from three room types -- one-bedroom studio, two-bedroom condo or three-bedroom condo -- and enjoy access to the on-site swimming pools (one inside, one out), whirlpool, sauna, steam room and beach. The resort sits on the Emerald Coast, steps from the Gulf.
Highlights
  • Beachfront property overlooking the Gulf of Mexico
  • Two swimming pools and a whirlpool
  • Sauna and steam room onsite, plus a state-of-the-art fitness center
Location
Escapes! to The Shores sits right on the beach, just outside Gulf State Park and about halfway between Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Pensacola is a 45-minute drive away, and various attractions lie within easy reach, including the National Museum of Naval Aviation (23 miles) and Fort Morgan (25 miles).
Rooms
Escapes! to The Shores offers three types of units: one-bedroom studio, two-bedroom condominium and three-bedroom condominium. All feature modern comforts (granite countertops, flat-screen TVs) and the latter two come with spacious balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
Features
Escapes! to The Shores has two swimming pools: one indoors and one out. Guests may also soak in the on-site whirlpool. Shiny new grills adorn the outdoor patio at the resort and are available for guest use. Escapes! to The Shores also boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center, plus a sauna and steam room.

Wonderful trip

We were very pleased with the accommodations at this resort. The staff was fairly unhelpful and made no apologies for their apathy, but really we didn't need them for much, so it was no big deal. They did seem offended that we had booked through an outside booking agent. Overall, We loved the location and the amenities.

Wintzell's oyster house across the street had a great happy hour. They also offer lunch specials until 4pm. Great value and great food!

Great Location

The location is perfect just walk out to the beach. The hotel pool was great for the kids since the ocean was still a little cool. The 2 bedroom is very spacious and well maintained. Mr. Meyer the head of security is just fabulous and really showed our whole group southern hospitality. It was a great trip

Family visit

Visiting extended family with adult daughter. Surprised that unit in ill-repair. Needed paint, new linens, extreme cleaning, drywall repair (holes made with door knob). Furniture had "body odor" and comforters on beds were worn and appeared dirty. Washed extra linens in the closet for use. This was a repeat visit to Escapes and our first experience was quite different. We plan another family trip to Orange Beach/Gulf Shores but will not stay at Escapes.

FABULOUS

We were very surprised at how big the condo was and it was perfect for our needs. Gorgeous view, we had breakfast out on the patio every morning. The master shower was heavenly with four shower heads! We will definitely be back! We had a one year old and a three year old with us and it was great for little ones. It was close to everything.

Great Vacation!

The room was terrific! I was not aware that the one bedrooms did not have a balcony, so we ended up having to change rooms. I just can't go to the beach without having a balcony. This was great for my little family! It was very spacious! :)
