We have been staying at the Gulfgate since 1994—I have lost track of the number of times we have stayed there. Our first visit was when our son was in first grade, and now we are blessed to go there with our grandchildren. We tried staying at another condo building one year when the Gulfgate was full—what a letdown! There is simply no better place in Destin when it comes to location, beach access, and amenities both inside each unit and on the property. The reason I am finally writing my first review of the Gulfgate is my appreciation for everything they are doing in this year of COVID-19. When we opened the door to our unit last month, the smell of CLEAN greeted us. Everything was spotless, which helped us relax and really enjoy our break from this crazy year. The lobby, elevators, and restrooms by the pool were also immaculate. Thank you to all the great staff at the Gulfgate who made our vacation such a wonderful time for our family!

Gulfgate is the BEST! Friendly staff. We have travelled to Destin for years. Spent the last 3 years enjoying our time away at Gulfgate. Love the private beach and the beach fellas do a nice job setting up beach chairs & umbrellas. Have stayed in different units and they have all been completely satisfactory!

Lovely condo on the edges of white sandy beaches. Tropical paradise in a quiet environment. Close proximity to local eateries that are famous for their seafood. Nice amenities, always clean and staff friendly. Like that it is gated so beach and grounds feel more secure. Always our favorite place to stay in Destin!

We had the best time! great facility, great view, great staff. Well maintained. It was nice to have covered parking so we could secure our beach toys each day. We can't wait to come back. Even though we had a pretty windy week, and TS Marco :( on one of the days, it didn't ruin anything at all! we had the best time.

We have been coming to Gulfgate every year since 1999. This year was just as relaxing as the others due to the professionalism of the management staff in the Covid era. Hate a crowded beach? Then this is your place. Most condos have been renovated and the amenities are top notch. It seems as though Gulfgate has more beach front per condo than other resorts in the area. We love this place!
