We have been coming here since 1996 and will keep coming back for years to come. We love room 319, but so does everyone else, so staying here every year is no longer possible, since we come down for my birthday every year. The view is perfect. Our "neighbors" are friendly and even the seaweed brought some excitement with all of the wildlife that comes with it. Just so you understand, this is not an upscale, new this and new that facility, but a throw back to the simpler days of vacations. It is what it is, so just sit back and enjoy the beach, the friendly atmosphere, and Armand Circle. Until we can get "our" room booked again, we will bounce around the world like vacation vagabonds, enjoying ourselves, but waiting for our room to be available at the Gulf Beach Resort.
