Check in here is after 3 PM and the office is open until 6 PM. However, they also have online convenience. check in available, which we did so we didn’t need to worry about getting there before 6:00. And we got in a lot later than planned due to our gps routing us down the wrong side of Mobile bay, se we ended up having to take the ferry across the bay. This got us in after 6 PM when we had planned to get in around 5:00 or so.

We also ended up getting upgraded to a larger condo for the same price, due to a maintenance issue. They had called ahead and told us about this so we knew about it before we got there. And since the office was closed, our welcome packet was waiting at the security gate when we arrived.

They gave us each a wristband that could be used to charge everything purchased onsite, and also provided a discount of 10% on everything, including meals onsite, so you don’t have to carry money or credit cards with you all the time, which was convenient. You just tell them how much money to load on each band and you’re good to go.

The condo was beautiful, had everything in the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms we needed. All we had to do was some light shopping and we were good for the week. All the doors have numeric locks so we didn’t have to worry about losing a key or card or accidentally locking yourself out. They give you an initial entry code but you can change it to whatever you want.

The view of the Gulf from the large balcony was amazing. All condos face the Gulf so there is no worry about whether you’re getting a view: you are :-) There are 4 high rise buildings and each one has its own pool, as well as a large one at the clubhouse in the middle, which also has an outdoor bar on one side, along with a ping pong table and other activities. Inside the clubhouse is an exercise room, indoor pool, and a day spa on the first floor, with restaurants upstairs, accessible by stairs or an elevator.

There are also cottages situated on several small water features, in front of the condo buildings, that can be rented but I cannot comment on them except that they look nice from the outside and are varied in size, up to 5 bedrooms for a large group.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, especially families as they appear to have a lot of activities geared toward children and there were quite a few kids here over the weekend. It’s a bit off the beaten track for main Gulf Shores but it’s also less hectic and
more laid back I think.

My first time to Gulf Shores in nearly 15 years and the Beach Club did not disappoint. Even in the off season and after a hurricane, this place got it done. The pools are amazing, the beach is incredible. The room was wonderful with a great view. Allen was amazing in the Clubhouse holding down the bar. Go hit the ice cream place while you're there. It was the most relaxing vacation I have had in 20 years. One warning though, DO NOT RENT THROUGH ANYTHING EXCEPT SPECTRUM RESORTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Other wise you could get a boat load of charges and fees by renting through outside vendors.

We have been coming to the Beach Club since it opened 20 years ago. We came this year after not having been in 5 years. I was disappointed to see how much it had aged. The amenities are still wonderful. The grill by the main pool is delicious. It has a nice work out facility, play grounds, basketball and tennis courts and many pools. It is on a nice part of the beach. The interior of the units could use some updating the exterior some maintenance; otherwise, it is still a wonderful family place to vacation.

We have been staying at The Beach Club for about 14 years now. It is a GREAT place to stay especially with kids. It is gated and has full time security. There are 5 outdoor pools and 1 indoor. Have never found the restaurant at the Club House very good. The restaurant up in the front of the property is fine and has regular bar type food. Ice cream shop is a nice touch for the kids and adults ! We were not too thrilled this year's new rule that you have to remove your beach chairs and umbrellas every night as in the past you have always been able to leave your stuff on the beach overnight. It was also kind of funny that along with this new rule came a service that offers to rent you chairs and umbrellas. ?? Overall though this is a nice place to stay.

The Beach Club is a gorgeous welcoming environment and their bartender Allen is just the cherry on top. He's such a sweetheart and makes a great Pirates Beach Margarita! Will definitely come back to the bar and the sushi is definitely an added plus ;)
