I won't repeat what other reviewers have stated as I agree with them: great beach, shady areas, super condos, close to grocery store, clean, up-to-date amenities, daily maid service (except Sundays), very professional staff, etc. What people haven't said that you need to know is this: the beach is NOT at all crowded. You see, many of the smaller places folded and sold after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. These places were bought, razed, and in their place huge, multi-story hotels were built. The hotels are much too big for the amount of beach space available for all the people that stay there. When you walk by these places you see people side by side in chaise loungers with no space between them. We heard from those who have stayed at these places that people will get up early in the morning to claim a section of beachfront "property." At The Islands Club, however, this did not happen. They survived Hurricane Ivan with minimal damage. There is plenty of beach for everyone - no need to claim beachfront space. We use the beach to play football, have appetizers and drinks at the beachfront, sunbathe, read in the shade, and then we stroll to the condo for a drink, snack, or have a meal. It's so easy. You also need to know that the water/beach area is very accessible meaning that the beach has a gradual decline so that younger kids can easily play in the shallow water. And the beach is all sand (a few pieces of coral every now and then)! I also want to add that there is no pool and that is completely fine. Never once did we wish there was a pool. I wouldn't base your decision to stay or not to stay here because there is no pool. The ocean is warm, inviting and refreshing.
The bottom line is that The Islands Club is truly the best place to stay in on Seven Mile Beach.
