This is our first stay but I must say that it was great. We were on the second floor so we did not have to use elevator and could just walk down to the pool and beach. We also had a reserved spot in parking garage that was very convenient to our room. The room was very clean and had...

I just returned from a week at Gulf Crest and have to say I was pretty disappointed in our rental unit 1102. Our reservation was made several months ago through Gulf Crest as they owned that unit. Between the time our reservation was made and when we arrived the unit was sold. The unit was freshly painted and the furniture...

We had a great time with our family down at the beach and the staff at Gulf Crest was very helpful. This particular unit had nice decorations and flat screens in the main area and master bedroom. The views are awesome and the deck is huge. This unit also had bunk beds that the kids enjoyed very much. We were...

We stayed in Unit #2107. The view was great, the staff in the office were great. The pool and hot tub were great. The apartment was large but had issues. The couches stank of body odour and the springs were worn out. The TV was a disaster - it was a 'projection' TV that only had yellow and green colors....

This is a wonderful condo; specifically room 701 is great with a large bar, balcony on three sides, three bedrooms/two bath, and a large kitchen.

My family enjoyed a relaxing stay in Gulf Crest room 1607. the condo is a 3 bedroom and we had no problem fitting our family of 5.
