Disappointed!!

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed at the Gulf Crest before and were very happy with the 2 bedroom condo we rented. This time we needed more room so we rented the 3 bedroom. We were really disappointed when we arrived. The condo clearly had not been cleaned, there were crumbs on the floor, dust and dirt on the tables and countertops. The linens had stains on them. We had to clean everything and wash all the linens. No one wanted to sleep on dirty sheets.

There were a lot of things broken and in disrepair. We read all the reviews and were concerned about some of the issues so we called the management company to ask if the issues had been taken care of. They assured us they were, clearly they were not, as we found out when we arrived.

The microwave which the management claimed to have installed after another customer complained was not installed a month later when we showed up. It was still sitting on the floor in a box. The fridge was missing drawers, the shower door fell off its tracks, the patio furniture was old and torn, the taps were leaking. I can go on and on but I won't.

The only thing that redeemed our stay was that we complained to the management company and they offered us a new condo. The new condo was better but also had many issues. It was very inconvenient because we had to pack up all our stuff again and move which took up our vacation time.

The beach and the complex is very nice, but I would not recommend this condo unit.

I give it 2 stars for the beach and the view of the Gulf from the balcony.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! This condo was recently remolded and is in great shape thanks to the Owner being so involved in keeping the unit a beautiful place to stay. Boardwalk offers tons of activities to keep the whole family occupied and happy while on vacation. It was a pleasure working with you, please let us know when you are planing your next vacation as we would love to have you all back in our home away from home.

  • 3 of 5

I have always loved coming to Gulf Crest Condos. Every year we rent a 3 bedroom with the fantastic wrap around balcony. This year we paid the highest fee for a condo that is below our standards. There were many things that needed fixing. The $5.00 ironing board was broken. There was mold in bathroom shower. There was a used condom on the ground by the air conditioner. Blinds were broken. Screen was ripped. One lounge chair was broken. Microwave was rusted. There were 3 hangers in each closet. The master bedroom tv was literally the size of a computer monitor. The bottom 2 bins in the refrigerator (fruit/vegetable) were missing. Last but not least, it was not vacuumed. After telling all of this to the management, two days later we received another $5.00 ironing board, 12 hangers and a new microwave..,,that sat on the floor all week. If pictures are needed, just ask. It was a big disappointment. I would've given it a 1-2 star but the view of the ocean needed its own star.

Owner's Response: The Gulf Crest is known for there large wrap around balconies, they are very spacious and great for larger parties. With small items such as an ironing board it is very common for them to break due to wear and tear, we actually keep a stock of them and other small appliances on hand for this reason. Hangers tend to go home with people very frequently and unfortunately it is out of our control. We have gotten the approval to purchase a new TV for the master bedroom and got the microwave installed in its proper place. We are glad you guys enjoyed the view of the Gulf of Mexico and would like thank you for your review.

Enjoyed the view tremendously. Nice roomy , clean condo. Only downside we had to leave our completely inside cat home and we missed him so much we left early. As far as the condo it was awesome.

Thanksgiving Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this unit. It's very spacious with comfortable seating and beds. There were some maintenance issues that were of a safety concern. The bifold door to the bunks fell off the first time we tried to open it. The upper rack of the dishwasher doesn't have a stop and will come off the runners when pulled out to load. The master bedroom breaker kept tripping, not sure why. --There were new sheets on our bed which is nice but they were so rough I had to wear long pants and long sleeves and it felt like I had rug burns on my face. I even tried washing the sheets to soften them up but it didn't help. The views are amazing and the complex amenities are great. I would stay here again but I'd be sure to bring my own sheets. There are no beach towels or anything other than basic hotel towels. There were no basic condiments such as salt, pepper, sugar. Be prepared to have to buy everything if you plan on cooking.
