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...

We booked Gulf Place as a studio and upon checking in and getting our room, we find that we were assigned a room smaller than a Holiday Inn Hotel room, a 3X4' balcony with no furniture, a bathroom that was large but very poorly equipped with no vanity but instead a wall hung sink and a cheesy bamboo shelf for...

We love The Perfect Pig and Pizza by the Sea at Gulf Place. Also the Artists of Gulf Place have the cutest shops. We loved making the Starfish People with one of the local artist. Really friendly people.

We stayed in a condo in the Cabana section. Nice place, with a good Gulf view, but a luxury 4 story condo is being built across the street, so the units will lose some of their view. The community is fairly small but has shops, restaurants and coffee shop. Easy beach access across street.

We stayed for a week in a condo on the 3rd floor of city center facing the gulf. It was excellent! The unit was clean, furnished with every thing you need to enjoy your trip. Free laundry was located across the hallway. Four tasty restaurants within a short walk, you don't even need to leave the community. The beach, weather...

Gulf Place features a nice combination of places to stay, eat, and shop. The artists in the middle give the community a funky flair. There is also music from time to time and special events on the green. If you are looking for a place that meets all your vacation needs, Gulf Place is great.

Clean room with nice view. Easy parking free laundry facility, also polite and professional staff. There is a one time cleaning fee that you should be aware of. I had a 1 bedroom that included a separate passthrough with bunk beds in it and a foldout couch in the living room. 1.5 bathrooms. There is a kitchen table and kitchenette,...

I have been staying in this community in several different units through resortquest. We have stayed in multiple units in Cabanas and Caribbean through the past 10+ years when traveling to Florida.

All kinds of shops and restaurants make this an interesting place to visit and dine. Three pools, two hot tubs, artists community, beautiful grassy commons area with free concerts in the warmer months. Activities are planned often and are fun to experience.

Love the location! You can walk to the Beach. I really like that you can type a code to get to the rooms, you don't have to worried about a key. My kids had fun In the swimming pool it wasn't crowded. A perfect family vacation. I'm glad we found our spot.

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
