We’re thrilled to now welcome our loyal guests back to The Beach Club Resort & Spa! Thank you for your patience as we’ve spent these last months recovering from Hurricane Sally. While construction does continue, guests can now put their feet in the sand and get back to creating happy memories at their favorite full-service, family resort in Gulf Shores. In full transparency, things will not be “back to normal” by the time you arrive. Please read the important information below to learn how specific areas of the resort will be impacted.
Balcony Access: Balconies are open; however, we expect ropes and swing stages to be in place across all balconies on the property. There may be a day when specific balconies are not accessible while workers access them via the swing stage during your stay. We cannot guarantee your balcony will be accessible for 100% of your visit.
Construction Inconvenience: Additionally, due to ongoing delays in receiving building material, many condos are still waiting to complete construction; this means construction noise and dust will be pervasive across the property with no set hours for workers either on the balconies or in the condos. Significant portions of the areas around the Clubhouse, Catalina, and Doral towers will be blocked off for construction, with walkways to the pools and beach.
Ground Floor: If your condo is on the ground floor, orange construction netting may obstruct your view and prevent you from exiting the condo via your patio.
Elevator Access/Workers on Site: You will likely see construction workers throughout the tower on all breezeways and elevators, resulting in extended wait times for elevators. We cannot make any guarantees regarding the conduct or professionalism of the contractors and vendors on property.
Pools/Amenities: The Catalina and Doral pools may experience intermittent closures while select balconies are being revitalized. We cannot guarantee tower pool access for the entirety of your stay. The Clubhouse amenities and Hideaway should not be affected, based on what we know right now.
Cottage Guests: If you are staying in our Cottage area, you will not have construction on your cottage, but you will need to pass through construction via a walkway between the Clubhouse and Catalina tower in order to access the beach.
Possibility of Cancellation: Please also be aware that while we are working to bring all condos back into operation as soon as possible, there is also a chance that your condo’s construction may be delayed. If this occurs it is likely you will have your stay canceled and refunded, as the current high occupancy at the resort limits our ability to move reservations. We wanted to make you aware of this possibility as soon as we could, so that you can better make an informed decision about whether or not to cancel your stay.
Waiver Requirement: If you should choose to retain your stay, we will be emailing you a waiver that must be signed and returned prior to 48 hours before your arrival. If we do not receive the signed form more than 48 hours prior to your arrival, we will be forced to cancel your stay.
