We have stayed at Sea Club 1 before with our family, but this time went on a birthday couple stay. It is so peaceful there!! We stayed in room 33 and even from there we could see the ocean from the dining area window. This room was perfect for the two of us. We have two small children, but thought... More

Loyal guests are the best! We appreciate you business and as you know when you come with the children you have a choice of the 2 bedroom villas 30/31/32 as well as the 2-bedroom units located on the other side. So glad you hear you enjoyed your birthday getaway! See you again soon. Christine Bushman/Property Manager More

Stayed here in Nov. 2015. We were so pleasantly surprised by the quaintness of Sea Club 1. Clean rooms with all the kitchen items you could need. The location on the beach was wonderful and so quiet too! Clean pool and pretty grounds with friendly people. The only thing I would change is the oven. It's very dated and managed... More

Great location, steps from the beach!! Cute little 2 bedroom cottage, very clean and comfortable. All your needs for a nice stay. Porch in front and private deck in back. Perfect for the amazing sunsets @ Longboat Key

My wife & I go there at least one time a year, to visit cousins that come from all over the country. They come to their timeshare, and we go to Sea Club 1, the staff, Chris & Bill are always nice to us. Now after going there for years, we are now family. What a great place for a... More

We love this resort because of its intimacy. Retro motel transformed into modern day condo accommodations. We unfortunately had a air conditioning issue that can happen anywhere. We were Immediately informed and transferred to another condo ( upgrade) and comped for our first night stay. Now we are spoiled and will probably chose this condo over our favorite efficiency condo.... More

This property is close to the beach, the sunsets are beautiful, the pool is clean, the management are friendly and accommodating. The perfect home base for a family beach vacation. My best friend and I we're looking for just a bit more. The interiors are dated and furniture is kind of uncomfortable if you are going to stay in for... More

I did one of the "pay for your stay, THEN we will tell you where you are staying" sort of things. I was skeptical when I did some research but once we got here I fell in love. Management was extremely nice. We arrived after normal check in hours but she left everything we needed and said that we could... More

The hotel accommodations were nice, however, management staff (female manager0 was rude and condescending. The note on the bottom of bill indicated " Checkout time is 10:00am, if you want to stay on the beach, there is public access 3 miles north" Manager says we don't like people hanging around after checkout There is little or no beach to sit...

Female Manager (myself) did explain that check out is 10am and we do suggest people head to the public beach so we can prepare for the next arrivals. Being a smaller property, we only have room for 1 vehicle per unit. The 'rude' comes to play because certain guests feel they do not have to abide by rules, in fact... More

Great getaway on the beach. We stayed in unit 48 and could not have been happier. States it as an efficiency but more like an apartment. Very clean and comfortable. Chris the manager is awesome and incredibly accommodating. Would absolutely recommend to anyone and will definitely stay again. Thanks for a great weekend getaway!
