Just returned from a three night stay at Gulf Crest. Had a wonderful time- just too short for my liking!!! The ocean was gorgeous- crystal clear and no seaweed to be seen! Ocean was cool, but swim-able. Weather was perfect- if not a little cool in late afternoon and early morning- very breezy this weekend. Like Gulf Crest a lot. We had unit 506- very nice and well furnished. The balconies at this place are huge!!! The condo is nice here- liked the assigned parking, fast elevators, and great pool area. Big complaint- they advertised one heated pool- no heat in sight! The pools were freezing- a lot colder than the ocean- and everyone was complaining. My kids swam a couple of short swims, but got out quickly each time. There were a couple of owners there who weren't happy either- one said she was definitely going to complain to someone. The only other thing that I didn't love was the location- it is very close to the action. The beaches were very crowded (I know it was Memorial Day weekend and the weekend a lot of people got out of school), but we heard noise all through the night. The first night we heard a band all night- thought it was LaVela/Spinnaker, but found out the next night that a place across the street was having a live band or karaoke or something- kept part of our family up most of the night for two nights. Also, lots of partying going on at near-by Summit and the clubs that were visible from our beach and balcony. I loved the condo complex itself- is very nice and mostly families, I just would have preferred a quiter location- especially on a holiday weekend. Unfortunately, we will be vacationing the fourth of July week beginning next year due to husband's vacation choices- so I will probably be looking for a more remote location- maybe the end of Thomas Drive or the opposite end of FBR. All in all- good vacation. I would recommend Gulf Crest on a non-holiday weekend. It is a very nice complex. So, guess I'll begin planning for next year and wishing I were back on the beach!!!
