Turquoise Place Orange Beach, Alabama

Nestled along Alabama’s beautiful Gulf Coast, Turquoise Place by Spectrum Resorts is an easily recognizable landmark in Orange Beach. With two towers that soar over the city skyline and the Gulf itself, you don’t have to worry about getting lost when you stay at this iconic resort.

Turquoise Place is one of the most luxurious places you can stay in Orange Beach. Everywhere you look there’s something gorgeous to see.

Room Tour

We enjoyed five relaxing nights in West Tower D Room 2204. Each of the three-bedroom units at Turquoise Place offers 2400 square feet of living space! Let’s take a little suite tour.

Bedrooms

We often don’t sleep very well when away from home, but I slept better at Turquoise Place than I ever do.

A cozy king-sized bed is to thank for that as well as the Clean Bed Guarantee. More on that later! Each of our children had their own room with a TV in it so they were very happy “campers.” Albeit, a little spoiled now thanks to Turquoise Place!

Living area

The floor plan is open-concept which makes this 2,400-square-foot unit seem even more spacious. Turquoise Place is ideal for multigenerational travel or large groups.

You don’t even have to leave the room to enjoy a sweeping view of the Gulf of Mexico.

Kitchen/Dining

The dining area is open to the living room and kitchen. There’s plenty of seating thanks to the large dining room table and the bar seating at the kitchen counter.

There’s even a wet bar for wine, ice, and making blended drinks. The appliance in the wet bar photo above that looks like a small dishwasher is actually a huge ice maker. You’ll have plenty to keep your cooler full when you head down to the beach.

And if you have to cook on vacation, you might as well do it with the help of a fully-stocked kitchen and luxury appliances.

Laundry

A washer and dryer are a must for me when traveling to the beach, especially with kids. Turquoise Place goes the extra mile with an entire laundry room! There’s plenty of hanging space and a sink for big, sandy messes.

Bathrooms

I spent entirely too much time in the bathroom during our stay, but can you blame me? Look at that tub! It became my own private reading nook.

The shower is quite luxurious as well with a built-in bench and multiple shower heads. Our unit had a total of three full bathrooms (all with jetted tubs) as well as a half bath off the hallway.

Balcony

The luxury continues as you step outside the living area onto the balcony of Turquoise Place units.

The gas grill setup is enough for even the pickiest grillmasters to perfect their dishes. And in case all that indoor seating isn’t quite enough for your crew you can take the party outdoors for even more places to lounge and dine.

I actually took a couple of late afternoon naps on this couch. With the waves crashing and the perfect fall air, it was so wonderful to doze off.

Now for the piece de resistance of the balcony. Drum roll, please…

Your own private hot tub! Did I mention the kids are a little spoiled now when it comes to beach accommodations? That goes for me too.

Speaking of the balcony area, let’s talk about the gorgeous view.

Views

With your own private hot tub on your own private balcony, you’ll be spending lots of time taking in the beautiful view right from your suite.

If you booked a room on a lower level, don’t fret. Turquoise Place has views for days! Watch the tide come in from the fitness room or Spectrum Club Lounge on level 5, or just look out the elevator like we did:

We enjoyed excellent weather during our September trip and what little rain we had brought out a beautiful rainbow.

We stayed on the 22nd floor and were able to watch planes, helicopters, and pelicans fly by at eye level as if we were watching cars and squirrels instead!

All of these perks and benefits are only available when you rent directly through Spectrum Resorts.

Dining

We definitely didn’t go hungry during our stay at Turquoise Place. Change of Pace Poolside Bar & Grill is there to make sure you are well-fed after all that time on the beach or in the pools.

The potato wedges are amazing and my kids loved the cheese pizza so much that we ordered at least 4 of them. It’s all they wanted to eat! Check out their full menu.

We always ordered our food and took it back to the room rather than eating poolside. There’s plenty to enjoy while you wait like oversized lawn games and a koi fountain.

Amenities

Turquoise Place by Spectrum Resorts has a range of amenities. Your beach trip won’t be boring and you’ll have plenty of options in case of inclement weather during your visit.

Our favorite area was the indoor pool on the 4th floor of Tower D. With a spacious, heated indoor pool, two hot tubs, a steam room, and a sauna, this is where we headed every morning of our stay to start the day off right.

If you step out the doors behind us in the picture above you’ll find a children’s playground.

Each tower has its own outdoor pool and two tennis courts are located on the 4th floor of East Tower.

Turquoise Place by Spectrum Resorts is so beautiful, luxurious, and fun that you might be tempted to hang out in and around the towers all day. Don’t forget the beach itself though!

I ❤️ Turquoise Place! My family and I have stayed there twice over the past couple of years. It will be hard for us to stay anywhere else at the beach.
