The Beach Club, Gulf Shores
Me on our balcony
Room: We reserved a one bedroom condo for three days/four nights at The Beach Club over the New Year holiday. When we got there, we were given a two bedroom condo (it was their reservation system's error) which we were given at the same rate as the one-bedroom we had reserved. We stayed in the Avalon tower on the 8th floor. It was really decorated nicely. I didn't want to leave!
Lobby: There's actually a separate building on-site for checking in. All the public buildings are really nice.
Food: Well, I cooked everything! The kitchen was really well-appointed, so Av and I just went down the road to a Bruno's and picked up groceries.
Spa: There is a spa, but we didn't make any reservations.
Our experience is this: We plan to make staying at The Beach Club a tradition. For a few years (when we don't go to a bowl game) we have stayed down in Gulf Shores for New Year's. There was a fireworks show practically right in front of our room this year! We'll also be coming back some time in March.
