4 Mistakes to Avoid When Planning Your Gulf Shores Vacation

Jillian Pierce - March 13, 2019

Summer vacation is a time designed for relaxation and fun, but a lack of planning can eat up value time, cost more money and leave you feeling like you missed out on things you wish there had been time for.

Let’s be totally honest. Usually mom is the planner of vacation time, along with all the other hats she wears, so often it’s a major feat just to get rooms booked and get everyone packed. Finding the best value or looking up kids activities may only be an afterthought. This year make the most of your vacation by avoiding these four costly mistakes when planning your Gulf Shores vacation.


Vacation Planning Mistakes to Avoid

Not Booking Direct

The Beach Club Clubhouse


Spectrum Resorts is the official onsite management company at The Beach Club Resort & Spa. Booking with a different rental management company may leave you jealous or even frustrated once you arrive. Families miss out on the benefits of having an onsite staff available for maintenance and security 24 hours a day and seven days a week.  

Booking with a rental management company other than Spectrum Resorts at The Beach Club also means missing out on onsite discounts on dining, shopping and spa treatments, as well as complimentary kid’s activities, complimentary bike rentals, priority beach chair reservations and so much more. Guests booking their vacations through other companies pay a premium for these added benefits.

Don’t make the mistake of booking through a third party or with someone you’re “hoping” will turn out to be decent. Book with peace of mind and assurance you’re getting high-quality standards on your vacation rental with every amenity and added benefit your family could possibly want. Take the guesswork out and deliver a family beach vacation that will create happy memories for years to come. After all, that’s what every mom dreams of…a happy, rested and reconnected family.


Driving More and Playing Less


Bike Rentals at The Beach Club

Booking a Gulf Shores vacation rental where everything isn’t onsite is another costly mistake. By choosing a resort like The Beach Club, you have more time for play and less time commuting between activities. Designed around a village concept, at The Beach Club everything is in one place: watersports, bikes, tennis courts, basketball courts, dining, shopping, arcade, spa and much more to keep everyone (especially mom) happy. Stop traveling from activity to activity and start playing!


Not Checking Bed Linen Policies

Clean Bed Guarantee

Sometimes peace of mind is worth it all. While other rental companies wash their sheets and pillowcases after every visitor, they only change out the comforters once a month, once a quarter or twice a year! Spectrum Resort’s Clean Bed Guarantee gives guests reassurance by guaranteeing that each unit will receive crisp, freshly-laundered coverlets with every new guest. Don’t make the mistake of sleeping where you don’t know the policy on clean linens.


Not Booking Early

The Beach Club Condos

Don’t wait! Why risk having your favorite condo or cottage rented by another guest during your vacation dates? Spectrum Resorts guests at The Beach Club pay no deposit when they book more than 30 days in advance.

A property like The Beach Club Resort & Spa (with 300 units managed by Spectrum Resorts) offers the best in luxury resorts with four Gulf-front condominium towers, as well as, lakeside cottages. Enjoy a gated community on 86 acres with private beaches, walking trails and more in a secluded atmosphere. With a beautiful location on the Fort Morgan Peninsula, The Beach Club takes families a little off-the-beaten-path for the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and reconnect. Enjoy fully-appointed kitchens, flexible one- to five-bedroom floor plans and stunning panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico in the spacious condos or have that home-away-from-home experience in a lakeside cottage with private parking and generous two- to five-bedroom layouts. Either way, mom is a hero for discovering a resort that well-suits the entire family.
