We just left from our week long stay at the destin gulfgate and had an amazing stay. Our unit was perfect for us, very clean and beautifully decorated. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The beach was beautiful and clean and never crowded. Our ONLY complaint is that the beach chairs were too close together and too far from... More

Our stay was wonderful. The amenities were all clean, staff was friendly, and service was prompt. Easy access to the beach and beautiful panoramic views. Our 3 and 5 year olds loved the kid friendly pool and we enjoyed a workout in the nicely equipped gym. Next summer we hope to stay longer. ;)

What an incredible vacation had by 17 family members in June, 2014. These condos are huge, and beautifully decorated. We stayed in newly renovated 704 and I would definitely choose this unit again. The bed was soooo comfortable. The location is perfect and the complimentary beach set-up spoils you. The workout facility overlookiing the pool/ocean was spotlessly clean and not... More

My husband, 2 sons (11 and 6), and I stayed in unit 604 and it was absolute heaven! You cannot beat the location right on the beach, and the sheer size of this condo is unbelievable. The view from virtually everywhere in the condo is amazing. We felt completely spoiled. Check in was easy. Having the beach chairs/umbrella included was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Gulfgate and loved it! Very clean, every staff member was friendly, and the beach is amazing!! We can't wait to come back! We rented directly from the owner #401! Very secure- coded gates to the beach and street, nice pool, and in walking distance to restaurants and go-carts.

Fantastic view from Room 704. Everything new and beautiful view from the balcony. White sand and endless beach makes for great beach walks. Recommend lunch at "Back Porch" restaurant -- can walk there (Amberjack sandwich is favorite). Lots of good options for seafood dinners. Especially liked the Beach Walk Restaurant (make reservations, go early and sit outside). Lobster tail was... More

This was an anniversary trip for us. Very good location. Appreciated that it was a gated facility. Unit 301 was GREAT, very clean and with very nice furnishings. The view of the beach from the balcony was amazing. Had everything that we needed in the kitchen. We plan to return next year for our 50th wedding anniversary.
