The location is stellar .... But remember, this is a former seaside motel from the 1950's, and it lacks many amenities. No pool. Most units face east or west, with no views of the ocean. The beach is pristine, but the decks and the community chairs are bottom of the barrel cheap on the decks and it just feels .........

The management here is terrible! I would never recommend this place to anyone due to the horrible experience my family and I had here because of management of the property. My family and I drove 5 hours and paid 326.00 to check in at 3:30pm on Friday. We were given a sheet of info with the code to the gate...

Capri by the Gulf is the worst apartment I've ever done business with. Beware this place; check in 2 hours per day only. Rude, unhelpful customer service. They are refusing answering and help us. Do not recommend at all

We stayed in unit 117. It was newly done over so it was clean and bright. It is right on the beach and the beach is absolutely gorgeous, white fluffy sand and the water is so clear you can see your feet waist deep.This unit's kitchen did have everything you need in it ,which was nice.( I would bring little...

We stayed at Capri by the Gulf in the "low" season in April 2013--between spring break prices and summer prices. The property was smaller than most of the other big establishments and due to this, it seemed more "intimate" and not so impersonal. The time we went was a lower price due to being between two more "desirable" seasons. We...

My family and I stayed here 3 years in a row. We stayed in room 109 the first 2 years. Both years we were very satisfied. This is a quiet, cozy little place right on the beach. You can open your door and see the beach. The 3rd year I wasnt as pleased with our room....not sure of the room...

walked into the office to check in and the woman behind the counter didn't even look up from the whole chicken she was eating to say hello! Handed us the keys to our room with greasy fingers and actually belched as she pointed out where our room was. The condo was old and dated, the room was filthy, sheets and...

We have been going to destin for years. We have spent the last 4 vacations at the Capri. We have stayed in a different condo every year and have enjoyed every one. The gate makes you feel so secure, and the location is perfect. It's so peaceful and quiet. You couldn't be closer to the beach unless you were sitting...

My husband and I grew up on the East coast of Florida and have never vacationed on the Gulf. Having been in Texas now for 18 years, we were long over due for some serious beach time. For our kids, 6,8 & 9, Capri provided for a wonderful experience. The room was perfect, freshly appointed with comfortable sleeping and everything...

This marks the second time we have stayed in this location. It is right on the beach and central to Destin. If you are on a budget (or making last minute reservations in our case), this is a great place for a couple to stay right on the beach. The room we stayed in (Capri 113) was decorated wonderfully.
