Perfect Location and Beautiful Beachfront Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your lovely condo. This was our first family vacation and first visit to Panama City Beach and we could not have stayed in a more perfect place! The oceanfront view from the condo and literally being steps away from the beach made this a perfect vacation. We had everything we needed for our stay and having the beach chairs/umbrella was extra nice. We will be coming back. Thank you!

Beautiful, just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Views are spectacular (loved that there were balcony doors in the master as well as off the dining room), beach was clean and moderately occupied on most days. The pools are huge and we enjoyed them greatly. We didn't use the kitchen much, but one of my only complaints is the ice maker was totally unusable as it was covered in mold. My other complaint is there really should be some sort of non slip surface in the bathtubs, they are VERY slippery and we had to be extra careful when showering.

Overall we had a FABULOUS time and we're so glad we stayed at Gulf Crest!

Beach Stay at Gulf Crest Condo on 9th Floor

  • 2 of 5

In the past I have great service and rave reviews...not so much this time. First, the icemaker was broken in the refrigerator, and when you have 9 people staying in a condo, ice can get pretty expensive. I did call and send an email and never heard from anyone at Emerald Coast. Now the worst part was there was not enough towels and washcloths to accommodate 8 people...much less 9. And, the towels were small and paper thin...need new!! Also, there was NO linens whatsoever in the condo for the pull-out sofa bed...no sheets, no blankets, no pillow...nothing!!! And, to top it off...it was the dirtiest condo I've ever stayed at the beach. My granddaughter dropped her earring under the sofa and we pulled it out and there was a layer of dirt and dust, not to mention all the food crumbs, cereal, doritos, etc., underneath. Oh, and the furniture was so filthy in the condo...it looked like someone had brought in used and worn out furniture to the den...and most uncomfortable to sit on! Whoever is cleaning this condo needs to be checked out because it was really dirty in there. The floors were sticky and already had sand on them. AND....the kitchen did not have any pans or cooking pots. It was certainly a disappointment especially since we have had such good luck in the past. I hope this review will bring awareness to the rental company and they can make some changes! I gave rave reviews the last 2 years, but I just couldn't let this pass. It was just too much!

Definitely Recommend – Amazing Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Panama City Beach and staying at Gulf Crest Resort --- We truly LOVED it! It was just the vacation we needed and cannot wait to return!! The unit itself is VERY clean, VERY well kept and has EVERYTHING you need for a great getaway. The beds were very firm (personal preference) and our unit was supplied with everything we needed for our stay. We cannot wait to return and would definitely stay here again. We chose to keep our distance from the more touristy activities and were pleased to have a conveniently located Walmart and other shops within a mile or so of the resort’s entrance. At the pool, there is a nice Tiki Bar where we had drinks while watching the sunset. Gulf Crest grounds were very well kept and secure. We definitely recommend this unit, Gulf Crest Resort and Emerald Coast Destinations --- we had a great time and are already looking forward to our next visit.

Great Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend for anyone wanting a great vacation - book at Gulf Crest Resort! Everything is available within a short distance. Condo direct on the beach - having the beach chair available extra benefit! Very clean, comfortable and supplies for all our needs. Dining close by. Very relaxing. Thanks Emerald Coast Destinations!

Gulf Crest resort is really nice....but...

  • 2 of 5

I really liked the resort and the room, but the furniture is really worn out and this unit needs a new cleaning staff. I'm sure they were paid to prep the room but the floors were sticky and sandy when we arrived, then we found someone had gotten sick in both bathrooms and poop was smeared up the back of the toilet seats and gross debris stuck all over the bowl and surrounding. There was a plunger left on top of one of the toilets. Just gross and unexpected. They sent a lady by to clean but I had already done the dirty deed. The cleaning lady said she would give us a 25 dollar gift card, but we never received it. There were no dish towels or hand towels. No soap anywhere. I went to Wal-Mart and bought bleach etc. I really do like Gulf Crest but when you start off having to clean up stuff like that it leaves you thinking about it. Then the bedding. The sheets and pillows were very terrible and gross. I actually washed the pillows from the master bed room. Very rough cheap linens on the beds. The two bunk beds had no bedding on them or sheets when we got there. My wife found some in a closet and made them. I don't pay to rent a condo and then end up cleaning it before I can use it. A couple hundred dollars on good sheets, pillows, towels, and a good cleaning crew would make a huge difference here. The worn out furniture I can deal with but really expected very clean nice accommodations and this didn't provide that.
