We enjoyed our stay in June of 13. We stayed in unit 407 and the suite itself was very nice. Fully stocked and very comfortable. The beds were comfy, and our family fit nicely. Our only wish was that the tv was HD, but not a big deal.
Outside of the room, the facility was nothing to write home about. The pool was big and not crowded during our Sun-Thur stay. The kids liked it, but if you are looking for a pool as a major part of your experience I would look elsewhere (Port Royal has an outstanding pool, but I don't know what the rooms are like there.)
There is no restaurant or gift shop at Sea Gull, so plan on making a trip or two into Corpus (10 Miles) or Port A (5 miles) for supplies.
The beach experience is nice for Port A. No crowds, and the staff always had chairs/canopies available. In general, i wouldn't choose this beach if you could as easily get to a nice beach elsewhere. Once again, I don't know what the weekend crowd was like, since we were not there.
During our week, judging by the lights in the units seen from the beach at night, the building looked to be about 1/3 full.
We liked it because our kids were entertained with the breach/pool and the room was nice. It wasn't the classic tourist-drink-&-a-novel beach vacation however.
Our 4 night stay cost about 1900 after taxes. I suspect with early booking you could get that down a bit
