Editor’s Review of The Beach Club

Located outside of Gulf Shores, Alabama, along Fort Morgan Road, The Beach Club stands alone on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico with the Bon Secour Bay at its back. Originally opened in 1998 with its first tower building, The Beach Club now consists of four tower buildings and 30 cottages spread across 76 acres. Rounding out the resort, the property also contains onsite dining; a boutique; a clubhouse featuring an indoor pool, fitness room and spa; tennis courts; a basketball court; a playground and several lawn areas.

The Beach Club is the epitome of what a great family vacation at the beach should be. Given all the amenities offered at The Beach Club, families can check in and never have to leave until it's time to head
... more home. It has spacious accommodations, quick access to the pool and beach and nearby family-friendly dining. However, should they want to explore the area, The Beach Club is not far from the attractions of Gulf Shores, as well as the Fort Morgan State Historic Site and Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. Therefore, visitors can pack their itineraries with as little or as much as they desire. less

Given the hotel opened in 1998, the facilities have some age on them, but they are well maintained. Village Cottages are perfect for families, but larger groups also find the Gulf Front Condominiums to be accommodating

Gulf Front Condominiums
Each condominium unit is decorated differently, so while the floor plans may be similar, you'll find something unique about each one. In total, there are 656 units in the resort's four towers, ranging from one to five bedrooms. Both Avalon and Bristol are 20 stories high, with 187 units each. Catalina is 14 stories high with 128 units, and Doral is 16 stories high with 154 units. Of these, there are approximately 325 units in the resort's rental program.

Accommodations include a fully equipped kitchen, separate living area, balcony or patio, washer and dryer, bath and bed linens and a starter supply of household items, including paper towels, dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent. For those who want to stay in condos and have really young kids, consider a first-floor unit with a patio, or units on the second or third floors that have three foot-high walls along the balconies. Units on floors 4 and higher have balconies with traditional railings.

Village Cottages
For more privacy, consider one of the resort's 20 rental cottages that reside near the resort's center. With two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom cottages, you're sure to find one that works for your family. Like the tower units, each cottage is individually decorated. They also come with different outside amenities, such as grills, hot tubs and pools. These units provide much more privacy than condos, with the added benefit of outdoor yards where kids can run around.
