First we were not given the room we thought we had booked, but a room smaller than most motel rooms with one queen bed rather than two, a three by four foot "balcony" rather than the 10 by 15 shown on their site. Those rooms were "unavailable" though the place was far from booked up. (We did receive a $150 rebate from Hotels.com). Off season construction was going on outside our window, not mentioned by the resort and the room was very poorly furnished. Wood trim around the refridgerator was held to the wall with three Velcro patches. Staff was polite but not interested in hospitality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A location that is a perfect destination for family vacations or a weekend retreat, Gulf Place is a vibrant community nestled in the heart of peaceful Santa Rosa Beach. Splashing fountains, park benches, tree-lined streets, footpaths, an amphitheater and parks compliment the town center's location directly across from the Gulf. And from these stunning accommodations, you're just a short stroll away from community pools, golf, shops and eateries. From Gulf Place, visitors can experience the the 26-mile stretch of the Scenic Highway 30-A area and its eclectic shops and artist colonies along the pristine coastal area. Enjoy breathtaking views and sunsets over the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico while sinking your toes into the sugar-white sands. Relaxation rules the day here, while at night visitors can enjoy the eclectic shopping and dining options of nearby Destin and Panama City Beach-both just a short drive. Nature preserves offer hiking, biking and wildlife watching, while the Gulf and surrounding bays provide an open invitation for deep-sea fishing and water-sports such as parasailing, snorkeling and kayaking. ... more less
