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...

Very quiet and a great view of the ocean. Pool was clean and the beach water was beautiful. Slept a family of 5 with the pull out... More

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 Cons: broken floor tile, outdated (most older condo buildings are here), no balcony, took toilet very long time to...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

My best friend, her 10 year old daughter and myself stayed at Top of The Gulf 07/16/15 -07/20/15. If I am being honest this stay was mediocre but was not terrible. We absolutely loved the location of Top of The Gulf! There is only a very short walk through the pool area to reach the beach. The pool area is... More

We stayed in room 516 and it was very plain. No decorations bed was very uncomfortable and small but room was well stocked and clean. Shower pressure was amazing. Right on the beach!! No hot tub tho. :( Liked that there was a parking lot and not a garage.

Great view, very breezy facility. Close to the beach. Great pool. Friendly staff. All the appliances were very clean and worked perfectly. The kitchenette was well stocked and we were provided with lots of towels and wash clothes. Loved having a radio in the room. The furniture was comfortable. Clean. Convenient. Quiet. One kind of silly thing though, rules are... More
