“No luxury here!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON SEAGULL. We were optimistic when we saw the beautiful pool and beach canopies, but the good ended there. Rented #802. They should be ashamed of themselves for calling this a "luxury" condo. We don't like confrontation, just wanted to relax and swim all week. NO WIFI ALL WEEK! Multiple visits by Maintenance were unsuccessful geting modem/router to work. Sliding glass door to Balcony broken (came off tracks when we tried to open it), foldout couch broken (like someone had jumped through the canvas and busted it out). Toilet turned sideways with no caulking (one of the few things Maintenance even attempted to fix & did, thank you guys). Sat down to dinner at table and chair had two wheels off, turned it over to try to fix and other 2 came off. Maintenance took it, brought it back and wheels fell off as they handed it to my husband. Kitchen was nice, but IKEA cabinet doors weren't installed correctly and 4 of them wouldn't close. Not a biggie, but just tacky. oh, did I mention...NO WIFI. Front staff not very gracious, not professional, Manager nice, but didn't get us a solution to "no bed" for 2 of our guests which she said would be "no problem." We didn't want them to have to sleep on hard tile floor, and didn't have any blankets for that anyway. On 2nd Day they finally got us an air mattress, which worked for 1 person, but was in the way the whole week - pretty small living and bedrooms here. WE RECOMMEND GULF SHORES or CASA over this condo. We feel like we wasted a LOT of money renting here.

Room Tip: I'm sure some owners take better care of their condos, but DO NOT RENT #802. Instead of a relax...

Thank you for taking the time to review Sea Gull Condominiums. Guest comments are a great way for us to determine how guests feel about our property/staff and then in turn to make the necessary improvements.We currently advertise internet service in all condos and wi-fi availability in the lobby. Some owners have installed wi-fi routers, but not all have this option at the moment. We are currently researching options to provide wi-fi throughout the entire building. Housekeeping and maintenance departments work diligently to report/repair problems in the condos prior to check-in. Each condo is evaluated and is expected to meet or exceed minimum unit requirements. Our staff works with owners on an ongoing basis to ensure condos are in best possible condition. We hope that you will return in the future for a better experience.

We rented2 condos(409 & 410) and I can't say anything bad about the Whole place. The towel exchange everyday is nice, both condos were very clean. We(15) stayed 7 nights; on Wednesday housekeeping came-Changed sheets, vacuumed, left more soap and to. The pool and hot tub are GREAT! When you go to the pool-you can stop by front desk to get pool towels. Oh, THE VIEW---------: ) Stay here--you will not be sorry.

We recently rented a two bedroom condo, no. 808, and the ocean views were beautiful. Two bathrooms, fully stocked kitchen, large living room, awesome and very helpful staff. Nice walkway out to the beach with beach canopies and chairs for their guests, nice pool with plenty of room for families to grill together.

Room Tip: On the website you can view the rooms and furniture before renting.

I have stayed in this complex three times. I keep coming back because of its convenience to the beach. I also love that each unit has a balcony facing the beach. During the summer months there are complimentary chairs and cabanas that are set up for you first come first served. Don't expect that in the off season. Every unit has been well equipped and though most are dated, they have been clean. On my most recent visit we had a problem with the hot water in one of the showers that was not addressed right away. The pool is nice but this time the hot tub was not heated for the first two days we were there.

I stayed in Condo #505 for a weekend and I wanted to stay there forever...no, really...FOREVER. It is a beautiful condo with huge bathrooms. The views are fabulous, too. The pool and hot tub were great and the beach is just a few steps away.

Our family has stayed in different units since 1983! This March, we stayed in #605, which is HUGE. Four bedrooms, four full baths, three living areas. Two dining tables for seating for 12. Great balcony, great view. The poo/hot tub is very nice, and the lobby is very inviting. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach access is very easy and much better than some vacation condos. The only downside is that the bedrooms have not been updated in a long time -- saggy mattresses, threadbare sheets. We stayed four nights, so we just dealt with it. Condos never seem to have bedding as nice as even mid-level hotels. If we were renting for a month or two (there are a lot of Winter Texans there), we would at least bring our own bedding.

Room Tip: If you want a good view, choose a floor above three. The first floor units have walk out access to...

Stayed in suite 110 away from the crowds. Huge flat screen TV in family room, brand new tempurpedic type bed in master, flat screens in all other rooms. This unit is at the end of the hall way away from noise and pool. First floor access allows you to avoid elevators, and easy access to parking lot and beach. Kitchen is nicely appointed with everything you need. Tile floors throughout so no dingy carpet to deal with. I would highly recommend this place and this unit. The resort is upgraded, clean, staff is friendly. 10 minute drive to Port A, ands almost private beach with no crowds.

Room Tip: Quiet, convenient room with nice view: #110
