Great place away from the busy main road in Gulf Shores. Great value and wonderful staff. Nice units. We already made plans to return. The rooms were clean. Coast restaurant has great food. Beaches are well kept

Room Tip: The pictures on their website are a great representation

Beach Club is a beautiful place with beautiful beaches and pools. Two nice restaurants on location with delicious food. 4 condo towers each with its own pool. Very clean. Beach is short walk from condo. Ice cream shoppe on site.

My husband and I stayed at The Beach Club for a short vacation and we absolutely loved it. The condos, property, amenities, and everything else that The Beach Club offers its guests are so great. We would most definitely recommend The Beach Club to any of our family and friends and we will be back to The Beach Club for our next vacation!

This place was very clean and the condos were very nicely equipped and very clean. Felt like a very safe environment and lots of stuff for the younger children. The grounds and pools are beautiful. Definitely not a party place and geared for families. Staff was friendly and accommodating however wait staff is quite slow. The beach is very clean with chair service. The resort does allow for fishing on the beach so be sure to try and stay away from them. When they catch something and drag it in, its unsettling with the line and hook and whats on the hook going all over the place. Location is 15 miles from everything with the exception of a small party store and pizza place and ten miles to a gas station. I would consider staying again for sure

Room Tip: I stayed in the Britol building and liked the location

If you're looking for a beach trip without all of the traffic, crowds and hustle of Beach Boulevard, this is the place for you. The condominiums are spacious, and all of them have a view of the Gulf. There is direct beach access, and the complex is somewhat secluded so you don't have a lot of folks outside of the ones actually staying at the complex.

The condo where we stayed was spacious (if you are in one of the three-bedroom units, you're on the end of the building, so you also have either a great sunrise or sunset view in addition to the Gulf).

From my arrival through various other encounters, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The maintenance manager even spent an hour late one evening assisting with jumping off the dead battery on our vehicle.

The sports bar/restaurant located near the main entrance serves wonderful food and has a great selection of beers. The bartender was friendly, and she made outstanding recommendations on menu choices.

If you want the tourist trap shots and overpriced, bad-food restaurants, you need to stay along Beach Boulevard. If you're looking for a refreshing, relaxing experience, The Beach Club is definitely the place to be.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better for the view, but they're also more expensive.

The Beach Club is isolated and, those wanting a good beach experience in the Gulf Shores area, can certainly find more convenient and economical locations that are equal to The Beach Club amenities. If you tire of the on-site restaurant you are in for a long drive to get something to eat, including shopping for snacks or food to cook. Nightlife, another long drive. Activities for kids . . . you guessed it . . . a long drive.
Food in restaurant is just OK and is pricey. Unsupervised kids dominated he spas since the supposedly heated pools were quite cold.
Most irritating though was the extremely poor customer service at the front desk. We were told that no way could we check in before 4 PM so dutifully we cooled our heels until our room was ready. Our big surprise was to learn that check out is 10 AM. The resort was maybe at 40% occupancy so we figured it would be easy to get an hour delay in checkout so we could have brunch at the onsite restaurant. Well guess what . . . no checkout beyond 10 AM and if you want a late checkout you must give 24 hours notice but the real kick in the teeth is that Housekeeping was not even open until 10 AM anyway . . . we know this because I called Housekeeping for more coffee and I got a voice mail telling me that no one from Housekeeping would on site until 10 AM! Anyway, we checked out and went into Gulf Shores proper had a great breakfast/brunch much less expensive than the onsite restaurant.
The front desk staff is very pleased with their inflexible rules and procedures -- telling me that any stay beyond 10 AM will result in another day added to my bill. We stayed the weekend and paid $250 per night - so we were paying top dollar for what should be comparable stay at a great hotel but this was not even close.We will never be back -- there are numerous better and more convenient options in Gulf Shores proper.

Room Tip: If you are a family planning on staying at The Beach Club be advised the room that we occupied is a...
