This place is perfect if you like a relaxing beach vacation. It is like stepping back in time with modern convenience. October is the perfect month to visit. It has a homey feel because each unit is individually owned and they take pride in their little space in paradise. At checkout we booked the same room for the same time... More

50's motor inn turned condo is less than 100 steps to put feet on water. Don't have to cross street or use public entrance to beach. Capri has private stairs to beach. If you can't climb stairs then this is not the place for you. Our room was 123 and arriving at night it was difficult to find condo because... More

We have stayed at this location several years in a row. I can tell you that the location can't be beat. It is not a resort, but we love it! The units are independently owned, and none are exactly alike. We have found the office and repairman very helpful if we ever need anything. All units have a kitchen. You... More

The location is stellar .... But remember, this is a former seaside motel from the 1950's, and it lacks many amenities. No pool. Most units face east or west, with no views of the ocean. The beach is pristine, but the decks and the community chairs are bottom of the barrel cheap on the decks and it just feels ......... More

The management here is terrible! I would never recommend this place to anyone due to the horrible experience my family and I had here because of management of the property. My family and I drove 5 hours and paid 326.00 to check in at 3:30pm on Friday. We were given a sheet of info with the code to the gate... More

Capri by the Gulf is the worst apartment I've ever done business with. Beware this place; check in 2 hours per day only. Rude, unhelpful customer service. They are refusing answering and help us. Do not recommend at all

We stayed at Capri by the Gulf in the "low" season in April 2013--between spring break prices and summer prices. The property was smaller than most of the other big establishments and due to this, it seemed more "intimate" and not so impersonal. The time we went was a lower price due to being between two more "desirable" seasons. We... More
