Really nice rooms, superb food and the pool was super nice. On occasion they have poolside concerts that used to really be fun. Very nice masseuse that was able to loosen my old bones up before getting on a place to Houston.

My husband and I have enjoyed dozens of weekends at the Gulf Hotel. It feels like a home away from home, with the friendly staff and comfortable, well appointed rooms.

Advertised as 5-star. Lobby and restaurants nice. Rooms and Apartments average. Even on floors designated Non-Smoking cigarette smoke has permeated all carpets, drapes, etc. The program supposedly including 19 international airlines with whom you are supposedly eligible to earn up to 1000 points is a farce.

Very high quality hotel. Stayed in a newly refurbished room, which was very tastefully decorated and well equipped. Service was good throughout - most notably in the conference rooms, restaurant and Sherlock Holmes bar (Jayne was an absolute star here). The food quality is superb. I only ate in the main buffer restaurant but the range and quality was exceptional.
