Staff not so much. Not helpful and frankly stand offish. Staff could be seen smoking around the facility and inside the parking structures. Beach tender was rude, with the exception of the staff the trip was great.

The views are great and the beach service is fantastic. The staff is very friendly and more than willing to help make your vacation a good one. They offer good communication and the grounds and facilities are always clean.

We've been fortunate to stay at Destin Gulfgate for several years. I can honestly say it's like staying in a beautiful home. We've stayed in various condo units over the years and they have all been super. The property is just top-notch. All of the units have these amazing balconies that have an unlimited gorgeous view of the the ocean....

Stayed Thursday-Sunday. Will definitely be back! Property is clean and quiet. Beach is beautiful! The room was spacious and clean as well. Didn't have much interaction with staff but the interaction we did have was good! We were even able to see dolphins from our balcony.

We used to love Gulfgate, however the last couple of years, our experience hasn't been quite as good. We stayed in 904 this year and bedroom furniture is beautiful. The carpet in den area is nasty and needs to be replaced with tile. The couches looked old and dirty. The maintenance personnel are awesome! Pool is very nice.

Came here for our honeymoon and it was a wonderful experience! The views of the ocean were incredible from the spacious balcony! All fixtures, appliances, and decor were top notch!! It was like we were staying in a house from HGTV! Highly recommend this property!!

Destin is beautiful in October, traveled with my sisters and my daughter. Gorgeous beach, beautiful condo.. Very private rarely saw other guests. Beach was not crowded, chairs were available early. Beds were comfy and condo was spacious, there were 4 adults and we never felt crowded..a friend told us about Destin Gulfgate and it was exactly as she said, beautiful..

Love Gulfgate! Always maintained, clean,and beautiful. Great pool for children, but still peaceful and fun for adults. Staff is friendly and will do anything to help. Balconies are the largest I have ever seen, and well furnished. We saw dolphins almost every morning! The location is right in the middle of everything, but when you are on the beach, it...

Very clean, updated and. COMFORTABLE! Had a wonderful time. Spoke to many people on the beach and they all said they always come back to Gulfgate. Even after staying at other properties. This one seems to be the best! Will be back.
