What an unbelievable place with a view to die for! The condo was spacious enough for our family and guests with privacy whenever it called for it and room for the kids to run around. The private beach and pool were fantastic and my daughter was delighted to see the manatees from our terrace! I would highly recommend the longboat... More

We visited some family in the area last week and happen to stay at Longboat Bay Club. We travel about three times per year and always stay at resorts affiliated with RCI. Having been to many different resorts, we can honestly say this was one of the best! The beach access was very nice, also nice that the balconies face... More

i stayed at Longboat Bay Club in May 2014. As a new owner I was looking very closely at all the facilities and what I found exceeded my expectations in every way.

The Longboat Bay Club was a wonderful place to stay. They are time shares that get rented out. It is a small complex with I believe only 15 units. The third floor, also the top floor, is recommended because of great views. The corner units have wrap around balconies, also highly recommended. Our unit had a recently upgraded kitchen. It... More

We have been returning every year for the past 4 years. We love everything about it. The condo is huge, well kept and comfortable. The patio is overlooking Cranes Bay with many manatees and birds visiting. The grounds are beautiful. We like the fact that it is small building with excellent management. The ocean is across the road- a 2... More
