We stayed in unit 117. It was newly done over so it was clean and bright. It is right on the beach and the beach is absolutely gorgeous, white fluffy sand and the water is so clear you can see your feet waist deep.This unit's kitchen did have everything you need in it ,which was nice.( I would bring little packets of salt and pepper with you, for the unit doesn't have that)The bathroom's shower and a stand up only, (no tub if you have little ones )but it was a good size shower . It is non smoking which is a huge plus,for there was no odors.There is a beach service which sets up 2 beach chairs and one umbrella for each unit,free.
The cons are there were no hangers, not one so we couldn't hang any of our clothes. I went to dry my hair, no hair dryer so my husband went to the front desk and they said they don't have hair dryers because it's a liability.My husband ran out to buy a hair dryer and when plugged in,it didn't even reach the shower so I am not sure where the liability comes in.There is no pool, not that I sit by the pool all day, however it is nice to dip in the pool at the end of the day or when it's windy at the beach. There is NO house keeping.You get 6 towels,when they are dirty, your doing your own laundry.That means no new sheets,no toilet paper,no Kleenex,no emptying of the rubbish,no extra trash bags ETC.There was a TV in the bedroom, but the remote didn't work so that means you had to get up out of bed to change stations or shut it off.The central air in the bedroom was very loud, there was a rattling sound every time it turned on.The only clock in the whole place was the one on the microwave so I hope your cell phone has an alarm in it if you need to be up early to catch a flight. The top shelf in the closet had extra blankets,pillows and 2 Broken?? DVD players but all sort of thrown up there. Our first night going to bed the headboard kept banging up against the wall every time one of us moved. We got out of bed and pulled it out some from the wall, the next morning we looked and the headboard is just nailed to the frame, so not very sturdy and that is why it kept banging the wall.
We did enjoy our time here because of the beach, Not sure if I would stay at Capri by the gulf again,unless we tried a different unit.
