Many Condos may look like a hotel on the web but PCB has few real hotels but thousand of condo rooms most are privately owned and rented out by owner or management copmpanies. No real hotel staff.

My family and I have stayed at Top of the Gulf for many years. We always stay in units that are rented by owners rather than use an agency. It is an older complex but over the past 3 years or so, they have done some major improvements. The building has been repainted, addition of new common area balcony furnishings... More

I would like to start my review advising that I booked my room #116 through Vacasa, which manages that condo, which I would like to give kudos for because the condo was exactly as advertised by them. Before booking I was skeptical due to a mix of reviews I had read in through several websites. One of the reasons that... More

On our second night in our condo, we noticed a bad bed bug infestation. Left immediately and had to book a hotel room for one night. Owner was very workable with a fair refund. Moved to Days Inn beachside the next day. It was a shame because we were enjoying to complex otherwise. Bed bugs are one of those thing... More

After viewing their page of photos we decided to go with this place and when we walked in our Condo it was horrible. The beds were like sleeping on old box springs along with the noise, windows leaked so much water in from the rain we had to put down towels. The refrigerator freezer looked as if it had not...

Our room unit 521 was very comfortable and clean. Extra chairs for the beach were in the closet and water boards. Ac worked great and had a great table for family game nite!

I'm not a very critical person so I'll just lay out the pros and cons. Pros: on the beach, excellent location to city center, walking distance to night life (club la vela), security at the gate, pool, studio space is spacious. Cons: broken floor tile, outdated (most older condo buildings are here), no balcony, took toilet very long time to... More
