Sea Gull Condominiums
Reviewed January 14, 2010

We lucked upon Sea Gull Condos in Port Aransas several years ago after trying several other condos in the area. We have never stayed anywhere since but Sea Gull. Why? Not only are the units awesome with gorgeous views, but the staff is way above others where we have stayed. The sales and management office are especially great. While we do not own a condo, we are treated first class since our return visits (along with the first). It only gets better.

We have stayed lengths of 3 days, a week, and even a month over the years. Our family members have also rented units. We are all treated as "valued" customers.

While it is mainly my husband and I on trips, we favor the 3 bedroom units as we love how the master overlooks the ocean which the 2 bedrooms don't. It is worth the extra money to us, especially if we are staying a week or more. While we cannot be guaranteed a specific unit, we can always trust that Sea Gull will try to find us the best accommodations available for our needs. And, over the years, we have also discovered our own favorite units.

Sea Gull is way above other hotels or condos.

All of the staff that we met were very pleasant. Maintenance guy's were very friendly and helpful. We stayed on the 1st, which gave us a real nice view of the ocean. I can just imagine the view from floors 2 and up. The large elevated deck gave a great view of the sunset. The grounds were landscaped beautifully. Pool and hot tub were clean.

The gym and game were not my favorite spots. They are located down stairs from the main floor and are small and not very inviting.

My family and I decided to take a trip to Corpus at the last minute to get away for the weekend- we were looking for a place to stay for a couple of days; looking at 4 different places on Hwy 361, we decided to give Sea Gull a try. We walked in the building and I could not believe how friendly the staff at the front desk were and not to mention the view of the ocean from the lobby.
The Lady at the front desk was very informtive and pleasant at answering our questions, not to mention that the Manager came out from her office and greeted us with a warm "welcome to Sea Gull" I was just amazed!!!
When we checked in to our room (condo #303) we were so delighted to be at Sea Gull; the cleanliness, the view, friendly staff and great all around-we decided to make Sea Gull our place to be!
I recommend Sea Gull if you are looking for friendly staff, nice property and beautiful view "Sea Gull is the place to be"

This is our 5th time staying at the SeaGull. We came to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. We have enjoyed every stay here. The staff has been so helpful. Check-in is a breeze, they have great reccomendations for places to check out while you are on the coast, and they always put us in a great condo.

We were married on the beach behind the Sea Gull and love to come back and reminisce. If you come here during the off season not only will you find a great price, but the hotel is so quiet and relaxing as well.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet, unique, clean getaway.

I have to add my comment in response to some negative reviews I noticed. My family has rented at the Seagull since the late 80's - probably 20 or more stays in all. We've NEVER had a bad experience. Over the years seen the staff cooly handle situations ranging from power failures to a freak tornado which came right through the property (broken glass; family moved to an unaffected unit; no problem!) This place is perfect except for the lack of a proper fish-cleaning station... (but you can take your catch and sneak over to the SandPiper next door - they have a beautiful gazebo-style screened fish-cleaning set-up!) But here's what's great about the Seagull: in all the units, you are right on the beach in a well-appointed living space with a balcony set up for a truly great view. If this is what is important to you, consider booking the ultimate experience in the three-bedroom units high up in the building - the ones with numbers ending in "5". Those floor plans are V shaped with balconies looking north toward Port Aransas AND South toward Packery Channel. The glass walls of the living rooms in those units open on to both views so you can take in the whole beach front of the entire island. You and your family will feel like kings of the world! Sorry some guests have had these strange experiences - nothing remotely bad has ever happened to us. Can't wait to spend January 2009 in unit 1205!

Our family vacation was a total sucess at Sea Gull!!! We were booked for another property on Mustang Island, and upon our arrival we were told that they had over booked and we no longer had a room. I was nearly in tears as we had traveled almost 7 hours to get our vacation started. We drove a little further up the road and found Sea Gull. Even just driving up to the entrance lifted my spirits - the landscaping is gorgeous! The ladies at the front desk were wonderful and so friendly to me and my family. They worked a little magic and were able to fit us in. Our room was beautiful and the view was breath taking! Coming back down through the lobby to get to the beach we saw the sign up for KIDS ACTIVITIES!!! My three kids were thrilled - and when they are happy, I am happy! They had so many activities to choose from each day and Ampy, the activities director, was so friendly. My kids were so proud of their painted t-shirts and all of their crafts to take home as souveniers of our best family vacation! We love Port A and we will make our return trips to Sea Gull. This is the place to go in Port Aransas if you have kids! And great for the grown ups too! A special thanks to all of the staff at Sea Gull for being so friendly and helpful to us - we will definately be back.

We rented condo #201 at Seagull.

Room- Our room was very nice and well taken care of. We reserved it on VRBO from the Janovyak's. Really Great Room.

Staff- The staff was totally useless. They seemed put-off at any little question. You couldn't get the front desk girls attention. There were 2 female employees standing right by the entrance smoking, as we were trying to leave. The smell was gross and they were totally oblivious to the fact, that they were employees and represented the Condo.

Awnings- There was a big yellow sign as you exit for the boardwalk that said the awnings (coverings) were on a first come first serve basis. When the staff showed up to unlock the awnings at 9:15am (not 9:00 am as posted) they just began setting them up for anyone who had chairs setup on the beach. We ask them about the first come, first served policy, but they 7 yrs old, I doubt anyone was gonna lie. Some who waited didn't get one and others who showed up late and set up chairs, got one.

Noise- While the Condo did a good job opening and closing the pool on time, the noise was a little ridiculous. People running up and down in front of the rooms at all times of the day and night. The beach siren malfunctioned @ 6:45 in the morning. And continued to go off intermittedly until 8:00am. The were working on the boardwalk, and so the sound of drills began at about 9:00 am, which totally sucks if you're trying to sleep in on vacation.

Overall- The place just looks run-down...not taken care of. For the price they charge, it should be nicer. I haven't been to the Mayan Princess or the Port Royal, but they seem nicer just driving by.

Beach- The access and view of the beach is the one plus of this whole trip. It is easily accessible and beautiful.

AND YES THERE IS SEAWEED EVERYWHERE...NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO.
