Recent Gulf Lagoon Beach reviews
Can't wait to return next year
"This was our first destination holiday. We arrived the Monday before Thanksgiving and stayed until the Monday after Christmas. The quick review is it was near perfect. The condo was comfortable. The decor was pleasing. The view from the living area and master bedroom was breathtaking. We fell asleep to the sound of the surf and awoke to the sun glistening on the gulf. The weather was perfect for reading on the beach and a swim in the heated pool. Just a few rainy days to work in movies and shopping. Dunes of Panama guests and employees were most friendly. Emerald Coast Destinations staff addressed any issues immediately. My husband and I enjoyed our stay immensely. Family and friends loved the relaxed environment. We will definitely return, hopefully to this unit. Thank you Emerald Coast for an outstanding holiday."

"I rented this unit for five days with my husband and two children (6 year old and 1 year old) during my oldest break from school. The unit itself was as described and exactly what we expected, with one issue. When we arrived the floors were very clearly not cleaned and within an hour of arriving my children had extremely dirty feet from exploring the unit. This was related to the owner, but unfortunately the unit was not cleaned during our stay, so my family and I just made sure to wear sandals at all times in the unit. I'm willing to believe this is something that the owner didn't have control over as the complex was extremely busy with lots of guests. Beyond that our stay in the unit itself was satisfactory as reflected in the 4 star rating I've left.
As far as the complex itself, potential renters should be aware that this property is very busy on a very busy part of PCB. We enjoyed our stay but there were several times when fire alarms were pulled late at night by other guests, and it was disruptive to my childrens sleep. In addition, the elevators are very inefficient and we would often spend up to 5 minutes+ waiting for one. Likely thus is due to the 12th floor placement of the unit and the busy nature of the tower. Other than these issues (which I do not hold against the owners), the tower property was great, the beach was beautiful and the pools were perfect for playing in, and there were plenty of chairs for guests, as we never had an issue getting a chair or two on the pool deck even during the busiest times.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay."

"Our family recently spent our spring vacation in PCB and realty enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo. The views of the Gulf were amazing and so were the sunsets! The condo itself was very roomy, clean, and definitely well kept! Our family loved the wrap around balcony from front to back as well as the large deck and the abundance of deck furniture, as well. We enjoyed the facilities at Gulf Crest as well as all the family entertainment available right across the street, too. This is the only condo I will ever rent again when we come to PCB for our next vacation!!"

"Karl's family have a wonderful condo. Each room has large window walls. Even rainy days are beautiful with those views. The open kitchen/living area is bordered on 2 walls of windows. Kitchen is small, but I wasn't planning on cooking a lot. There is a separate ice machine in the well equipped kitchen so no worries of running out of ice. The master bdrm was large and comfy. Plenty of drawer and closet space. The large bedroom window looks over the beach, but also walkway to water areas. So you have to be careful with mirrors and views. The 2nd bedroom has 2 lg beds and also has window wall. This beautifully furnished condo is on the 1st floor. That makes it just steps from the pool and beach areas. Step out the condo, make a right turn and you are going out to the walkway to water areas. We were occasionally briefly stunned when this walkway door slammed by the wind. The balcony has a gorgeous view and comfy furniture. You are on the front - end corner - so 2 directions of views over the beach and beautiful water. Everything was clean and maintained.
Karl is extremely helpful and attentive. He was quick to communicate via internet and phone. Always making sure everything was perfect. He had menus and recommendations for local restaurants and other helpful areas.
Plus, we were able to take our fur baby on vacation too. They had designated "doggie" areas which were maintained and convenient. We were in the area for our 40th anniversary and didn't realize it was Spring Break week when we booked. Our concerns were quickly put to rest by management. We saw only 2 instances of young men getting a little loud. It was handled extremely quick. We were on the quieter end of PCB.
This condo is perfect for a couple or a family. Everything is so convenient and easy."
