1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Paying $1100.00 for three nights in a one bedroom condo I really expected nice accommodations. My family and I stayed in Catalina unit 202 C and it was a total disappointment. Upon arrival, first thing I noticed was the filthy carpet throughout. In fact, it was so dirty I immediately instructed my daughter to put her shoes on and to... More

We stayed on the 2nd floor in Bristol. It was great because it was easy to just take the stairs. We were high enough to have a view of the ocean. Grounds are nice and well-maintained. Downside is there is nowhere onsite for breakfast/coffee with the exception of Friday-Sunday. Nice, quiet location. We had our boys, ages 12 and 15,... More

We have had wonderful memories at the beach club, but sadly their prime time is behind them. Simple salad or sandwich took over an hour, and the meal ranked at the bottom of our list at the end of a week long vacation. Our turkey club was turkey and cheese on toast -- it was the type of sandwich someone... More

When I think of Gulf Shores, Alabama I think of massive traffic jams, 2 hour waits at restaurants, and people yelling all night long. Not exactly my idea of a relaxing trip to the beach. The Beach Club is truly located in Ft. Morgan, which is a few miles from Gulf Shores and consists mainly of houses with a few... More

We stay here every year. The Bristol Tower is our favorite. Great amenities. You can reserve your beach chairs for multiple days. Multiple pools. Only negative, which is not reflective of The Beach Club, is the restaurant at the entrance, the Hideaway Restaurant. Dinner is a challenge. We waited 1.5 hours for hamburgers and chicken fingers. They do not allow... More

This is the second year that we have stayed at The Beach Club in the Bristol Tower. The accomodations are great and the staff always friendly. The Beach is beautiful and the sand is as good as anywhere in the pan handle! We stayed in room 1802 and it was great for a family of 4 (kids, 11 and 9... More

We stayed at the Beach Club in Doral Bldg Penthouse 6. Condo is beautiful with beachy theme - The furniture and decorations were 1st class. We especially loved the double lounge chairs on the balcony. Kids had a great time - they loved the beach and the heated indoor pool was a big hit. We will definitely be back to... More

Stayed at Bristol 710 through Spectrum. Very nice corner condo overlooking the resort swimming pools and the gulf. Condo was spacious, clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Swimming pools and common areas were clean and well kept. Beach was nice, but was disappointed in the amount of trash that other guests chose leave behind and the number of... More

We just got back from our vacation at The Beach Club in Gulf Shores, Alabama. It was a beautiful condo that we were able to rent and the process was easy. We had great weather and great service while we were there at the Beach Club. I've read some of the other reviews that would complain about the cleaning service... More

We went for Spring Break. Checked into a nice 15th floor unit rented via Spectrum the management CO. The condo itself was decent. The owners had it nicely decorated and well equipped with furniture/dishes, etc. Our first problem was no comforters or Duvets on any of the 3 bedrooms.... That's a pretty basic staple of a rental in my opinion.... More

Thank you very much for your comments. I apologize about the Duvets and the slow F&B service. We are in the transition of our "Clean Bed Guarantee" and are now placing new luxury duvets in all condos that are washed with every guest arrival, being the only major vacation rental company on the Gulf Coast to offer this guarantee.
