All About the Extras
Although The Beach Club is a full-service resort, it operates a bit differently than a traditional hotel with regard to housekeeping. Amenity packages and towel exchanges are provided for free upon request. Additional housekeeping services are available for a fee. For instance, you can arrange for the Towel & Tidy Service, which includes making beds with existing linens, cleaning toilets, placing a new roll of tissue in each bathroom, exchanging all bath linens and trash removal. Fees range between $30 and $60 per day, based on unit size. Another option is the Mid-Stay Cleaning, which includes making beds with clean linens, cleaning bathrooms, towel exchange and amenities, dusting furniture, sweeping and mopping floors, vacuuming the carpet, cleaning the stovetop and countertops in kitchen and cleaning patio windows and floors. Fees range between $65 and $120 per day, based on unit size. Guests can arrange for their preferred level of service at check-in, but are free to make changes at any time during their stay.
Resort fees cover clubhouse access and resort amenities.
The Art of Smart Timing
Like most beach resorts, The Beach Club experiences a higher occupancy rate throughout the summer, generally in May through September. Spring break and holidays are also high-peak dates. Therefore, for the best rates, visit after Labor Day through mid-November, and again from mid-February through mid-April. With regard to weather, the spring and fall are a great time to visit thanks to lower humidity; however, be prepared for interruptions during hurricane season, which runs June through November.
Fliers have two options: Pensacola International Airport in Pensacola, Florida, approximately 55 miles east, or Mobile Regional in Mobile, Alabama, approximately 75 miles west. Both serve several commercial airline carriers. If you're driving, take Highway 59 south, off of Interstate 10, and drive to Gulf Shores. Once in Gulf Shores, take a right on Highway 180/Fort Morgan Road. Drive approximately 12 miles, and then turn right into The Beach Club.
You'll need a car to get around the area; other than Uber, there are no public transportation options in Gulf Shores.
For Mom and Dad
When the parents can sneak away for a few kid-free hours, they should head to The Spa for a couples massage or a number of massage therapy, skin care, body treatments and salon services -- there is even a package designed specifically for the guys. For the ultimate indulgence, bring the spa to your room with a private, in-room massage.
