We've been staying here for years and have loved it up until the Board decided to make changes 2 years ago. This coincides with a management change as well. I'm not sure which one is the driver, but the end result is: Significantly increased pricing (to pay for the new pool and exercise facility you're not likely to use) Extended... More

This was our first visit to Destin and it will not be our last! We stayed in condo # 702. It was decorated very nicely and it felt very warm and cozy. The views from the living area, master bedroom and the balcony were BREATHTAKING!!!

We rented this condo (which was an end unit) for a week this September and loved it. The unit was nicely appointed, and very brightly painted. The view of the beach from the balcony was amazing. We saw stingrays, turtles, dolphin, and a couple of small sharks from the balcony in the mornings while having our coffee. The staff was... More

Extremely clean room, grounds, pool!!! Staff polite and personable. Private beach area never crowded. Requires four separate codes for each of the following; pedestrian gate, beach access gate, fitness center, car gate......kind of a pain, especially when dark, as none of the keyboards are back lit. Great view, easy walking to restaurants and amusement. Overall extremely quiet, was one group... More

Our family of four just returned from a week at Destin Gulfgate. We loved it! The pool and fitness center were great and so was the daily chair set-up on the beach. We stayed in unit 806, an end unit that's been renovated. It is gorgeous; very tastefully decorated with the latest in home electronics. Nice deck furniture too. There... More

We stayed at Destin Gulfgate in late June 2014 for the first time and loved it! Awesome condo, huge balcony with amazing ocean view, beautiful white sand, clear water. All staff members were very pleasant and helpful. Our beach attendant, Destry, was great. We will definitely be back!

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
