Description

Welcome to the stunning Crystal Tower, a beachfront haven like no other. Dive into the Gulf's largest outdoor pool featuring a Lazy River or cross the air-conditioned enclosed walk-over to access miles of sugar-white sandy beaches. This exceptional destination is nestled across the street from the Gulf of Mexico, boasting an array of amenities that make your stay truly premier.

Crystal Tower offers three distinct swimming pools—one indoor and two outdoor—offering guests a wealth of options for sunbathing and aquatic enjoyment. As you step into the magnificent granite and limestone lobby, you'll discover a fully-equipped fitness center, ensuring you can stay active even while on vacation.

Inside the condo, you'll find an inviting and well-appointed space. The Master bedroom overlooks the Gulf and offers a spacious King bed with breathtaking views. The cozy guest room features a Queen bed, providing a private retreat for your guests. Plus, a new sleeper sofa with a memory foam mattress offers extra sleeping space. The kitchen is thoughtfully stocked and ready for you to prepare the catch of the day. Conveniently, a full-size washer and dryer are available in the unit.

But it's the balcony that truly sets this condo apart. When you step outside, you'll be greeted by one of the best Gulf views on the island, stretching as far as the eye can see. This stunning vista promises to be the backdrop for cherished memories throughout your stay

"Recliner seems to be on its last leg; the only comfortable place to sit was the chaise lounge but it was pretty hard. The other part of the couch is not comfortable at all. You need more comfortable dining chairs and more than just 4 for the whole family. The master bed is very hard. Nice views and nice furniture on the balcony. The balcony furniture was by far more comfortable than anything inside. We did not like having to stop for keys (only 2 were provided for a room for 6). We prefer a keyless room with a code. We haven't had to keep up with room keys in many years. The only reason we booked this room is because my husband wanted a recliner. The people we delt with were really nice. I had sent a message the night before wondering it we could check in early but got an automated response. Per the contract we could check in between 3pm and 5pm. So we left about 9am expecting about a 6 to 7 hour drive. I got a text well before noon saying our room was ready. I wish I could have known that much earlier and we would have left earlier."

"This condo was in a great location close to lots of places you can walk to. The view was pretty, easy access to the beach multiple pools nice for little ones. Condo was very spacious for a family. The condo building has carts to help load/unload your car which was so nice. We will be going back for sure!"

"Beds were a little hard but not terrible. No blankets except for two 1/2 blankets on the master, but found a comforter in a closet. Overall the kitchen needs a few more accessories like pot holders, pizza cutter, etc. No keurig but a coffee pot so I wished I had read that! Patio furniture on deck older but super comfy. Light bulb in kitchen out. Blinds in bedroom and living area off the track but easily replaced. Also the front door had a metal stopper that kept scraping the floor. Refrigerator had a pull out drawer that was just sitting on a shelf. All little things but nothing that caused any major inconvenience. Hot water, plenty of pillows and towels. Overall nice price for what we got and have been to Crystal towers many times. Will definitely be back!"

"The only really negative was the parking passes and the check in and picking up keys. Had to go out of route to pick up keys to get in and then only one parking pass, my parents stayed in same condo and was given access remotely to their condo and also given extra car passes and extra wrist bands for property not sure why this condo couldn’t do the same."

"Beautiful view! Great pools, beach access, and hot tubs. The roll out mattress on the couch had hair on it, was lumpy and needed replaced, and left a one foot gap between the couch and mattress. There weren't any sheets in the unit for it but after a call to the office they did provide some (excellent service there). The couch also was shedding its pleather everywhere so we came home with it all over our things. The shower was clogged with hair and barely drained, which my husband cleaned out so we could shower. The unit was only stocked with small pans so it made cooking difficult. Also out of 4 kitchen chairs only one was strong enough to sit in! One was already broken in the closet, one was broken at the table, and the third chair was one time setting in it away from crumbling. We tried to fix the towel holder in the master shower as we found it broken under the sink. There were also dings and scrapes on most of the walls. The location and the rest of the condo were amazing, but the unit we stayed in definitely needs some work. Normally I don't write reviews very often but after this stay I noticed a $29 charge in my bank account with no notice of the reasoning, which to me added injury to insult. I may have incured the charge for parking or something else, but an invoice would've been nice. So yes I would stay there again but with proper expectations. The rest of the condo is what gave it 4 stars."

"We had a great time staying at Crystal Tower 1303. The only things we had a problem with, which aren't a big deal, were the dryer didn't want to dry the clothes properly, took several cycles, the outside light on the balcony was out, and there weren't any extra blankets. My daughters slept on the couch, and we had to drive home to grab a few extra blankets. Not a big deal, just thought I would let you guys know for future renters. Thanks for an awesome weekend and we can't wait to go through ya'll for our next vacation away from home!"

"I was a little hesitant about renting at Crystal Towers because it is across the street from the beach and I like to stay on the beach for vacation. The view from 1303 is beautiful! I was worried about looking at the back of other condos while on the balcony and not having the beach view, but the view is perfect! The condo was extremely clean and very spacious! This is crazy but the washer was great! It's a normal size washer/dryer so you can keep your laundry up while on vacation and not have a ton to do when you get home. The elevators were quick. There were plenty of carts to use to take your stuff to the room. The breezeway to the pool is air conditioned and it's a plus you don't have to actually cross the street. The pool and hot tub were also nice. There are plenty of chairs so you don't have to worry about not having a chair at the pool. I would definitely rent this condo again. Poole Properties was extremely nice to work with and made check in/check out very easy."
