Resident 2015 - 2020

My son and I moved in in 2015 Honestly because for the quality of the unit/complex I couldn't find a better deal (I looked pretty hard) We couldn't ask for a better staff. The office girls are amazing and the maintenance guys are pretty quick and thorough. I have a strong feeling the bad reviews are from bad tenants! I've seen my share but management was pretty good about weeding them out... I've seen MAYBE 3 roaches in 5 years.. in the south that's damn near amazing.. maybe the person who complained should clean a little better... I have had a couple bicycles stolen but I believe that's more due to the outlying neighborhoods and not the apts...

    DO NOT RENT AT THIS APARTMENT COMPLEX! They do not fix appliance like they're suppose to. All appliances are out of date. Cindy can be the most rudest person you will meet. They fix things at their convenience and when they want too. At the moment our air conditioner is out and of course we're told to let up windows that they will be down her whenever. WERE IN THE SOUTH ITS HOT OUTSIDE LETTING UP WINDOWS WILL MAKE IT HOTTER!!! I HAVE A TWO MONTH OLD THAT DOES NOT NEED TO GET HOT!!! MOST PIECE OF CRAP APARTMENTS RUN FAR FAR FAR AWAY!!!!

      Run far far away from this apartment complex! Multiple car break ins they do Not care for your safety nor your vehicles. Dont expect the "gated" complex to stay locked. Big time roach problem, for the whole time I was there. They do NOT honor military clause BE CAREFUL IF YOU ARE MILITARY! Made my move out super stressful, due to 60 day notice even thoughy husband was being deployed and we stressed the concern of needing to leave at the end of our lease. Out dated appliances. Walls are paper thin can hear everything going on upstairs and on the sides. Watch out for move out cost thats where they will get you.... they will let vendors in your apt without your consent after you tell them your not renewing and dont find out untill your stuff is missing. Multiple drug users and drunks all around the complex!!! Grown adults pee in the pool in front of mgr and they think its funny. Not worth the "discount" they will give!!! Take my advice and go elsewhere

        What a great place to live!! I hate that we have to move but you don't get a say so when you're military. I have never felt more at home in an apartment complex and I doubt I will be able to find another one that cares so much. I will miss the office and maintenance staff but hopefully we will be stationed at Keesler again soon so I can return home!

            This is a GREAT complex! The location is perfect and the staff are so friendly. Any time I've had a maintenance issue they have almost beaten me to my apartment. Lots of military and nice neighbors. So glad we moved here!!

              I moved here in the summer of last year (2014) because I really like the big floor plans, amenities, and price. Things were screwy from the start and I was starting to look for a new place BUT in March a new staff was hired and WE LOVE THEM!!! My work orders were finally taken care of and they are great to talk to!! I cant resist stopping by once a week or so just to say Hi. Cindy and Stephanie in the office go out of their way to make sure that you feel at home instead of living at an apartment complex. Joey and Terrie take the time to answer questions and do their best to make sure your are comfortable if they can't fix it the same day. I've never seen an office staff that can call you by name before an apartment number. This place has it all... location, roomy apartments, close to everything, great neighbors, and the best staff! I recommend this place to everyone!!

                BMG management has took over its time to leave these were nice apts in 2011 when moved in but things have changed. Just google BMG management and you want to stay away from this place they don't pay there help they have law suits against them for not paying venders who work for them.the lady they have running this place thinks she's better than anyone who lives in a apartment complex she want be there long I've seen six management company's come through this place in four years the owners keep getting these cheap management company's and it just doesn't work stay away from royal gulf. The place is run down they are not putting no money in this place. No pest control , lawn gets mowed when they can talk another company to do it for free because they don't pay. Fire extinguisher dated 2012 ,broken windows in apartments have been there for six months. This place is not safe anymore do not live here the gates never work anymore no one pick up behind there dog and you can't blame them the place looks like crap.

                  We moved here in august of 2014 and at first glance it appears nice, however my biggest complain is when management leaves ,approximately 5pm, then the complex goes down the toilet, I love with my fiance and do not feel safe,even being on the 3rd floor. Onto of that the maintenence here is hit or miss depending on who comes, and overall just a miserable place to live even for a cheap price

                    I moved into my apartment in July of 2012. The apartments were kept up well at the time but then we had a management change that winter and the apartment went down for a while. Now we have recently gotten another apartment manager and the apartment are kept up extremely well. The office manager and the leasing assistant are very nice and friendly people who are willing to go out there way to assist you in finding a comfortable spacious apartment that I can guarantee will be suitable for you whatever your need is.

                      We moved here in September of 2013. This is the best apartment I have ever lived in. There were some hiccups at first only because the manager at the time wasn't doing his job. When the new managers got here Rena and Julie, things improved very much and still are. I would recommend these apartments.

                              I have been here for 6 months and they are trying to repair the gate. The grounds are clean and neat. Some people just have a problem and this is their only way to try to get back at them. The management has completed all of our work orders within 24 hours. I do understand that if they have to order parts it might take a little longer but for some people they have no respect and they do not understand that certain items have to be order they just don't have everything needed sitting in a shop. Oh well it is a great place to live and I would refer anyone looking for a place to come by and see for your self. Dont take someone elses word.

                                Like the other reviewer has mentioned, these apartments are always under new management and none of the rules are being enforced. I loved them at first because they were somewhat renovated and relatively affordable. Now they have increased rent twice since we've been here. The railing to the stairs was supposed to be fixed over a year ago and is close to disintegrating any day now. The entire time I've lived here, I have not had an air filter and they have yet to give us one, despite our constant begging. I am always coughing now because I can smell my neighbors cigarette smoke. Most residents leave their trash on the shared porch for days and blare their music all hours of the day. I liked that it was a "gated community", but the gate hadn't worked for about 7 months. I know one of the residents here hasn't had a hot water heater in weeks and others don't have washers/dryers, which is included in the rent price. They refuse to do anything about our broken tiles and make you fend for yourself when termite season starts in May. I would never recommend these apartments, not even to my worst… See More>

                                  When I first moved to Royal Gulf it was nice, the people were pleasant, there were no trash living here. Now there are a lot of section 8 druggies living here. The grounds are not kept up. Our little wet land as they call it is nasty full of trash and maintenance refuses to clean it up nor does management do anything about it. Since I have been here we have been through 3 apartment mangers. Each one gets worse. The noise is ridicules after management leaves. They don't believe your complaints nor do they do anything about them. Another thing too, the apartments have no emergency exits. Our balconies are made of wood. If something happens and they catch on fire the people in the 2nd and 3rd floor apartments are screwed. So please someone look into these matters and fix them!!!!!! Dogs and cats poop everywhere and you have to step over piles of poop. There are rules that are not being enforced. Cats climbing and scratching peoples cars. These cats belong to some of the residents here. Nothing is done about these issues. Our security gates don't work, someone that wanted to get in bashed the box… See More>

                                    I just moved out and was surprised from the bad reviews. I enjoyed living at Royal Gulf. When I was looking for an apartment I e-mailed many places and they were the only one's who responded. The office staff was very helpful and friendly. The equipment in the fitness room was new and I also enjoyed laying out by the pool. It seemed like the grounds were well kept and trash was not laying around and any issues I had were dealt with in a timely manner. The gates were closed when the office was cose and I lived by a police officer. I think there were two living there. Yes I did hear the train but i got used to it. Most places I loked at in Biloxi were near the train tracks. I only moved out becaus I got orders but if I came back I would definetly go there.

                                      HORRIBLE!!

                                      At first I was happy with Royal Gulf Apartments. I lived there for 6 months. We recommended 2 people and that time we did not know that we would receive $250 for each person we recommended. So we were very excited when we found out and signed papers stating we woould be receiving that money. When the time came, they told me that they have nothing in there records of us recommending people, so therefore we got cheated out of money. There maintnence is horrible. I just had a baby and the air conditioning went out and it got up to 90 degrees in there and it took them 3 days to come fix after i repeatdely called them. When time came to move they told me I would be getting my $300 security deposit back. It took about a month to receive and when i opened it i was expecting a $300 cheack and it was only $150 so I called and asked why it was only that much and they said it was a carpet cleaning fee....which I was not aware of....so I looked through the whole lease and it states nothing about a $150 cleaning fee....nothing… See More>

                                        The place sounded great on the internet. My husbands military so we rarely get to see the place befor we move. For the first month or so everything went well. We rented a renovated unit because it had new carpet, cabinets, and counter tops among other "improvements". After you start looking closer the place was poorly renovated using the cheapest way they could to get by. Our doors to the laundry room keep coming out and all the office tells us to do is "pop it back in"...it doesn't "pop" back in. Our toilets have been running constantly causing a higher water bill and still haven't been fixed neither has our leaking kitchen sink. While it is a gated community the gates haven't worked since we moved in in January and are ALWAYS open. The suana and jacuzzi haven't worked since we moved in either. The pool is nice but its small so it gets warm and crowded easily. We haven't had a bug problem in our building at all and the neighbors are all very nice. They recently hired a new maintenance man who actually seems competant and wants quality instead of price even though the front office seems… See More>

                                          Enjoyable

                                          I have been at Royal Gulf since July 2009. The staff has been very enjoyable. Since the new staff came on, the property has been cleaned up, work orders get completeted in a timely manner and someone is always in the office to help. The staff has been very customer oriented. The only thing that is hard, is the train every hour but after awhile you get used to it. The apartments all come with washer and dryers whiche is great. As far as the gates, everytime it seems the property gets it fixed, someone who wants in, hits the gate to break it and it stays open again. With the fitness room, I know they have been trying recently to upgrade it. I would highly recommend this property for the staff and the cleanliness and its area location.

                                            I have to say we were excited about moving in here. The staff was friendly we loved the people who live around us. But, the people who were working when we moved in i guess got replaced by the most rude and unhelpful people i have ever seen. The foundation is bad and the whole apartment is uneven.Feels like you are in a fun house walking around. The ac vents do not work and after much complaining still nothing has happened. Due to this the ac bill has been huge!!!! It is roach infested and even after the pest control has come by twice in our building in the past couple of months, still we have roaches everywhere!!! They lie and tell you there are icemakers and microwaves in the apartment and also that he fitness center is excellent! NOT!! The equipment is poor and all broken the sauna does not work nor the jacuzzi. The gates do not work so they are constantely open and random people walk aimlessly around at all hours defidently not a safe place to be by yourself. The lights on our whole floor have been out for FOUR MONTHS!! You can not see where… See More>

                                              roaches

                                              i live in the 7000 building. My spouse and i were informed that the management was gonna bomb an apartment in our building and spray the rest of the building. Well after they bombed my neighbors apartment mine became infested with roaches. I informed management and they had the pest man come back. He blamed the infestation on my apartment. They have not come back by to bomb my apartment/spray. The infestation started in the kitchen and has now spread through the apartment. ive informed management repeatedly and nothing has been done. also my upstairs neighbor had a leak that caused my ceiling to have water damage sometime in july. i informed maintenance immediately. They told me that they would wait for it to dry and then they would fix it. it is now november and still nothing.

                                                Not Great

                                                I am going to be honest about these apartments. They are "okay" at best. I currently live in them for a short time (from May, 2009 until about September). If I were going to be stuck in Biloxi any longer, I would find a different apartment. The good things, the apartments are mostly clean and come with a washer and dryer. Its also pretty quite, I hardly ever hear my neighbors. Now for the bad. First off, about every 30 minutes, even at night, a loud train goes by the apartments blaring its horn and shaking the whole building, the tracks are literally right next to us about 100 yards away. Most of the gates are broken and open most of the time. The fitness facility they claim they have is non-existent. Its an extra room they threw some old equipment in from the 80s and literally NONE of it works. There isn't a sauna like they say and the jacuzzi whirlpool has never worked. The pool is okay, its always very cloudy and its small so if other residents are using the pool you feel like you are intruding on them. There is also a bad roach problem no… See More>
