Do not stay here unless you absolutely know which unit you are getting and have seen up to date pictures and are sure it is a nice unit. The units are all individually owned so I can only speak to #318 which was a dump....More

First of all, let me clarify that Top of the Gulf IS NOT an Hotel/motel. Every condo are INDIVIDUALY own, so the décor, condition vary accordingly to the owner. I have own at Top of the Gulf over 11 years now, and my condo is ranked 5 stars by Trip Advisors. I edited my Flip Key site but was informed when I tried to post my answer that I cannot post/include my website link . My Flipkey # is p162769. My unit has been COMPLETELY upgraded with granite counter tops...new appliances...furniture...Please go look at my site on Trip Advisor and you will see for yourself. I do 2 deep clean a year and go regularly to check behind my housekeeping. I NEVER had any major complain about anything but smell in hallway in 2010 which end up been from Algae on the beach (red tide). PCB beach came and rake the whole beach as it was a problem everywhere. Top of The Gulf saw an influx of new owners in the last couple of years, and with them....new beautiful upgrades units. Please go on site like VRBO were you can see per location and you will see what I am referring too. Like many of the other older building on Thomas Drive, Top of The Gulf do have owner who don't care as much and/or management company that don't do what they are pay for...keeping the condo in good standing. As far as the building it self, we are an older building as many other on Thomas drive. We spend money every years on upgrades as money allow. The building is small...only 199 condos...so are budget is NOT as large as larger complex with more owners to share the cost. Two years ago, we redone ALL the concrete work and repainted the building, doors, hallways, floors...and the complex has tried it best to maintain it clean. In busy time, and event...the staffs had done which I thought was a pretty good job at keeping it clean considering that they are only few of them due to the size of our building. Last year, Top of the Gulf replaced all the lounge chairs by the pools, added table for guests, added beautiful Avondale chairs and rocking chairs on every floors, work on landscaped.....This year, our Chill Tower got replaced, the lounge room downstairs is getting a facelift, new landscape project are in the making, discussion about the exercise room.....We are NOT a fancy place like The Shores of Panama or Sterling Reef not do we claim to be. We are a clean and affordable studio for the middle class. Again, I can only talk regarding my condo, but in 11 years I NEVER had a bad review and 90% of my business at Top of the Gulf is repeat. I would like to think that IF we were as bad as some of the reviews says we are...my VIPs guests WOULD NOT come back. Some have been staying with me for over 11 years and...2-3 times a year:-0. Trip Advisor ranked us #57 out of 78. Fancy place like Sterling Resort , Gulf Crest and the prestigious Shores of Panama ranked worst than us. My view on comments are this....I did over 50+ bookings at TOG last years and did NOT even get 10 reviews AFTER I requested a comment. Usually, folks with bad experience are more apt to comment that the ones with a positive one. Sadly for Top of The Gulf, it seems that most of the bad reviews are from guests renting from the management companies and/or owners who don't care. That are my 2 cents on the subject. I hope I did answer your questions. I CANNOT answer from the staffs as WE ARE NOT AN HOTEL/MOTEL. I can ONLY answer from an owner who care and love her little piece of Paradise:-). They are PLENTY of us at TOP of The Gulf who also cherish their little heaven:-0.

"The reason we picked this room was the best view of the Gulf. The others faced another condo or an empty lot."
