I stayed at the Boca Beach Club President's Day week 2013. This is obviously one of BBC's biggest weeks as the place was jam packed and the room rates were sky-high. The Concours d' Elegance was being hosted over at the main resort, which added even more people into the mix. Some people complain about the busyness of the Beach Club, but gosh you are visiting the 'it' place in the height of tourist season. The environment is going to be pretty electric no matter where you stay. To expect a gold/diamond upgrade during this time of year is pretty far-fetched. If the room upgrade is that important, I suggest paying for it...
The Beach Club is really a special place (to me anyway). I had an ocean view room, had the chance to attend a members-only wine dinner (members were incredibly friendly and FUN), ate at a few of the other restaurants, went to the car show, and hit up the spa. All of the events were a blast (though obviously on the high-end). Food was all great, but the mac and cheese at 501 East is consistently lukewarm. All but one member of the staff (seemed to be in charge of the pool area) was friendly and accommodating. Fairly minor nitpicks. After visiting this place year after year, I do notice a lot of the same faces still working here. I think that says a lot about the type of guest experience BBC wants to provide.
So yes, the place was extremely busy but they handled it very well. It was never a problem getting waited on at the pool or up at the Ocean Bar. I do hope to keep the BBC tradition going next year.
