I just had my wedding here and I cannot say enough great things about this venue and all the staff! This is old Florida at it's finest, there are very few places like this anymore. All cottages are unique and fully stocked with EVERYTHING you may need. All cottages have kitchens, most have more than one bathroom even for a... More

My wife and I travel frequently and have relied on TA primarily for hotels and restaurants. There is always a spectrum of ratings, but we have never found a property to be so far below prior ratings. I guess one man's secluded is another's shoddy. This place looks like a heavily wooded run-down area of cabins that have not been... More

We are sorry you did not take the opportunity to experience all that the Manasota Beach Club (MBC) has to offer. MBC prides itself in sustaining an historic and natural setting. This is a secluded resort with seasonal fine dining from November through the end of April. During the summer the individual gulf-front cottages are equipped with full kitchens, outside... More

Great place, good food and right on the beach. Been there for years. Was a nudist club many years ago. Be advised this is a private club. You would need to contact them for meals or accomodations. It is on Manasota Key in Sarasota County. There are 2 Motels just north of here.

Last summer, my family and I were looking for a place to host a gathering for my sister's celebration of life. The first place that came to mind was the Manasota Beach Club. Since our family is from the area and my sister loved nature, the beaches and beautiful sunsets, we took a chance that even in August, with the... More

Dining club is fantastic..feels like your are dining on a friend's porch. Multi course prix fixe menu..bring your own wine. Loved it! We had a drink on the deck on the beach at sunset. A truly enchanting place. Staff made us feel welcome and special.

Our two teenage girls fell in love with the roaming tortoises, the beach, the warmth and attention of the staff, and the unexpectedly delightful dining experience - and so did we. This was our first visit to the Manasota Beach Club, and we found we had stumbled into a treasure enjoyed by the same families for more than 50 years... More

How my husband and I missed this place is a puzzler. We are 20 year Florida residents, and I spent 4 years prior on Longboat Key. But then again, seclusion is a huge part of the allure of Manasota Beach Club. The first thing you will notice upon arrival, is that you have just stepped back in time, before Florida's... More

Just how have we not come across this property before? Old World Florida and its hospitality, but with all modern facilities, including easy to use wifi. Situate on the Englewood Key, with buildings largely separated by wooded areas. A few miles away from shops, if you really need them, but nicely secluded. The most noise is from the waves breaking...

This is the 12th year in a row that we have had a post-Christmas family reunion at the Manasota Beach Club. All ages (this year 6 months to 87 years old) love this spot! Beautiful beach, with water activities including kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding and of course swimming. Tennis, English style croquet, shuffleboard, bumper pool, Relaxing and low key. But...
