“Ocean Gallery is Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012 via mobile

We've stayed at Ocean Gallery for nearly every spring break for the last 9 years. We always get one of the ocean facing units. We have never been disappointed. We already have reservations for July 2012. A great place to stay in a great beach community!!

Stayed April 2012

Spent 9 days in a condo at Ocean Gallery. No wireless connection in the condo, outlets didn't work, man working in condo when I arrived, sliding door didn't open, screen door didn't open, old tv, mold in shower, carpets need replaced, bug spray co. had key to condo and walked right in, keypad at the gate to access beach doesn't work half the time so you get locked out, pillows on beds were flat and had gross odor, beds were old and not comfortable, was given two bath towels and two wash clothes for 9 days, etc. I will never rent from this place again, not worth the money.

We have been completely been blown away and blessed with such an amazing vacation spot at Oceans Gallery. It is such a safe, secure, and fun place to be. The indoor/outdoor heated pool is wonderful and our condo was only 300 ft from the ocean. Private beach access, racquet ball court as well as tennis and basketball, fitness center, and sauna are some of the perks of staying here. Will definitely be booking my next Florida vacation here!

I have stayed several times in VDL 78 its a two bedroom two bath unit. It is completely updated with hardwood floors, new kitchen and baths and has a beautiful sun room. The resort has many ammenities and everything is always clean and neat. The private beach access is wonderful. We love St. Augustine and it's a short distance between downtown and Ocean Gallery. I would definitely recommend Ocean Gallery.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

Stayed in a oceanfront condo in the premier vista building. We had a first floor oceanfront condo that was very nice and clean. Just steps from the pool and hot tub and the walkway to the beach. The only thing that could have been a little better was if we were up on the third floor and had a better view of the beach. For those of you who have never been to St. Augustine, all of the hotels and condos have a mound of sand/grass growing between the condo and the beach. You have to be at least on the second floor to see the beach, and all of them have walkways that lead from your condo to the beach. This was my first time to St. Augustine, and we will be back! We loved Ocean Gallery and the condo!

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room on the second floor or higher if you want a view of the beach.

Very disappointing condo this year. Have stayed at this complex for many years, usually in different units. Some are very nice but many are not. I don't understand how OC can continue to charge the same price for units that have been updated and remodeled as they do for those that haven't been updated. Our unit (LP 1-4) was filthy upon arrival. I went to the office the next morning to complain and they sent someone to mop and clean the bathrooms. It was obvious the place had not been cleaned before we arrived. Found several dead roaches around the unit, lots of sand on the tile floors, mildew in the bathtubs, and the fridge had not been wiped out. Oven was atrocious! When they charge you a cleaning fee of $150, I expect the condo to at least be clean when we arrive. Ours absolutely was not!! Security guards can be unnecessarily bothersome and the pools closed too early. This has been our favorite place for many, many years but at long last, we will not be returning. Unfortunately, it's time to find another vacation spot.

Room Tip: Definitely use the online tour to check out the units; however, that doesn't mean it will look l...

We Were Humiliated and treated like second class citizens at OCEAN GALLERY. You can only swim at thepool that is near your particular group of condos.We did not know this. We went to one of several pools at this facility to swim because my children(ages 6&10) had met other children who were staying at OCEAN GALLERY znd were swimming in this particular poo. We were made to leave this pool even though we were staying at ocean gallery. The security guard was rude and it was very humiliating what happened to my family. I WILL NEVER STAY AT OCEAN GALLEY AGAIN. MANAGEMENT WAS RUDE ABOUT THE Whe HOLE ORDEAL. AFTER THE ORDEAL WITH THE POOL INCIDENT, WE WERE AWAKENED BY A KNOCK ON OUR DOOR A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER AT 7:30 AM BY WORKERS WHO WERE STARTING TO REPAINT THE OUTSIDE OF THE CONDO WE WERE STAYING IN. OUR VACATION WAS RUINED BY OCEAN GALLERY. THIS WAS OVER A $1000.00 THAT WAS WASTED ON A CRAPPY PLACE TO STAY.
