“Third time is not the charm...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2006

A friend and I just returned from our third "Mom's week-end away" at The Beach Club. Our previous trips had been fabulous, and we expected this trip to be the same. When the reservations were made, a two bedroom unit (not a specific room) was requested. On our previous trips, our second bedroom had always had a queen bed. When we arrived, we discovered that the second bedroom had twin beds. Expecting the queen bed, we contacted the office and requested to switch to another unit. We were told that we could only switch rooms if we agreed to forfeit our deposit (equivalent to 25% of the total cost of the reservation amount), because our deposit was for that unit, the owner of the unit had been promised that income and would be disappointed. A subsequent conversation with a manager yielded the same disappointing results. Bear in mind that this is February, and that there were many other empty rooms. We did not request this particular unit, and we were not told when we made our reservation, that the second bedroom had twin beds. However, the staff apparently did not care that we were unhappy with the arrangements. Their only other suggestion was to send someone up from engineering to "push the twin beds together." For our next trip, we will find another destination.

This was our first visit to the Beach Club and it was a great vacation for our family. It is off the beaten path, so it feels private and exclusive. Our condo was very comfortable for our family of four. Our children, 8 and 6 loved staying at the Beach Club and have asked to go back next year. Our Condo was very well decorated and comfortable. The beaches were not crowded and there are several pools to choose from if you chose not to deal with the sand. You do have to drive about 15min. to get to some of the restaurants in town, but that wasn't a big deal. The restaurants at the Club were very good as well. Service and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Hopefully we will be able to go next year after the Katrina clean up.

The Beach Club was nothing short of fabulous! My family enjoyed everything from the awesome nightly poolside entertainment, to the most awesome Mark Chesnut concert (yes right there at the resort)! to their heavenly spa! I could't ask for a more relaxing, more fun and more memorable vacation! The check in staff is so sweet and helpful as well as the spa staff-which by the way was one of the best spas we have ever been too! Great management and will definately be back next year as well as recommend to all my friends and family! You guys deserve an A+!
