DO NOT RENT FROM OFFICE. BEWARE. I have stayed here the last 7 years and have never been treated so awful as this trip. The security made us lock our doors while in the room. At all times. One day the kids could play with water Val's in the pool and the next day they couldn't. The towels were all... More

Like many of you I was skeptical because of all the bad reviews I read but after talking to Courtney I decide to take a chance...Wow what a great place to stay. I even added 2 days to my trip because of Courtney and her staff! The mistake many of you made...just my opinion...is booking through other agents or VRBO.... More

We stayed at gulf crest for fall break. All the units have different owners so it is hard to comment on one room and have that reflect that as all the units shop I will review the amenities and facility itself. Upon arrival the lady that checked us in was very helpful and nice. The parking garage is nice in... More

If you are planning on having an enjoyable stay please choose somewhere else ! This is a no fun zone and not a place to take your family. The entire trip we were constantly told we couldn't do anything. There are constantly security guards who are completely rude ! Completely ruined my vacation. Until now we were very loyal guest...

My family and I spent Labor Day weekend at Gulf Crest. The room had a great view and was in an excellent area of the beach (minimal traffic). It was easy to walk to restaurants, putt putt and popular bars. The room itself needed some updating, especially in the bathroom. The shower door in one of the two bathrooms was... More

It was absolutely horrible. I went through vrbo to rent a particular condo that was unavailable. Jon Caldwell with Emeral Coast Destinations, graciously(sarcasm here) volunteered 307 Watercrest. The pictures looked fine. We got there and it was terrible. The room was dirty.......floors, counters, dirty sheets, no pullout sofa sheets, blankets, pillows, no pillows in one of the masters, electrical plate... More

We put a deposit down in January 2014 through Emerald Coast Destinations for our summer vacation 2015. We booked a unit at Treasure Island. Sent in our final payment a few weeks before the trip. Drove all the way to Panama City only to find that the condo had been rented to someone else. Emerald Coast Destinations had failed to... More
