The location is perfect for beach, shopping, dining, marinas & attractions. Everything you need for the beach. Very spacious, the kitchen equipped with everything! Free bikes, videos, books, games. Underground parking, a plus in Florida! The staff was personable & friendly. We stayed in 105 - loved the location w/ wrap around & front balcony. Just a few steps to... More

Just stayed at LBC with my kids and in-laws. It's located on the bay side of LBC with the ocean right across the street. This was nice, at times, since the week were there the Gulf was quite rough and windy and it was nice to walk back to the bay side where it was much more relaxed. The pool... More

We always strive to improve the resort for our guests, and to that effect, we are upgrading our wifi this week by adding elevated signal access points in two spots at the pool and picnic area of the resort; these will allow for a much wider and stronger wireless signal. The resort is usually quite peaceful; however, the 4th of... More

WOW! This was our first time at Longboat Bay Club but we have exchanged into many resorts over the last twenty years including others on Longboat Key and this was hands down the best of all. We had an end unit with wrap around balcony. Very spacious and well appointed. Beautifully and comfortably furnished. Closets and storage space galore. Assigned... More

We managed to get a last-minute RCI exchange into the Longboat Bay Club and all we can say is WOW. The photos online do not do justice to the resort. Our unit was on the 2nd floor. It was at least 1500 square feet, 2BR/2BA. Master bath featured a huge garden tub! I understand only a few units have the... More

We purchased an every other year unit at the Longboat Bay Club probably 10 years ago and have enjoyed using the resort. It's got a wonderful location which is near all the places to go for entertainment and great restaurants. It's a quiet resort with very spacious rooms that are much larger than most timeshares and the units while not... More

We have stayed at many Gold Crown Resorts on the beach, but this was by far the best one. It was 1600 sq. ft. and we had a view of the Gulf out the front door and a view of the bay out the back. They even have their own boat docks you can use for free. We brought our... More

We have spent many years at this resort and finally decided that we had to move on to better options. This place is in need of a major overhaul. Although the area is quiet, the pool is maintained adequately and the location is good, the furniture is in need of replacing. The boat docks have not been maintained and have... More

We lucked into finding this gem 4 years ago and have been back every year since. The rooms are terrific; plenty of space, comfortable beds, 3 TVs, large living area, big stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave and the outside balconies are wonderful. The view of the sunset every night from right outside your front door is beautiful. The... More

Probably the most beautifully appointed suite we've ever enjoyed on a vacation. We booked it "free" on points so I really don't know the actual cost. Free bikes w locks, few miles biking to St. Armands circle--a must see in the area. Public access to wonderful, never-ending beach is just across the street.leave extra EXTRA time for vacationers traffic on... More
