Located at the north end of Gulf Blvd, Sea Breeze sits away from all the highrise hotels and all that comes with that. It's a great location, right on the beach. The pools are small and basic but adequate. The staff leaves something to be desired (Condo Owners - take note!). They have forgotten that spring break is not all year round. They treat all guests as if they were spring breakers, and at 10:00 (not 10:01), they kick everyone out of pools and the jacuzzi (when we were there, each night there were 4 or 5 folks very quietly enjoying the jacuzzi and were abruptly ordered to leave). The primary "caretaker" who does the pool-kicking-out also immediately throws what looks like twice the amount of necessary chlorine into the pools to prevent re-entry.
This caretaker (who calls himself management and threatens to evict anyone making any noise on their balcony after 10:00) is extremely bitter and angry and on several occasions was heard wishing that an oncoming tropical storm (Don) would send all of the "guests" away.
All that said, if you try to avoid them, then you can ignore the lack of customer service and have a great time.
Condos are relatively clean (a little mold in the tub/shower), but most don't look like they've had an update since the mid-70's. If you're going for a weekend, you have function rather than style, so it works!
All in all, not terrible for the price, but think Red Roof Inn, not the Ritz.
