We stayed at The Beach on Longboat Key for 5 nights. It was a great vacation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was made service everyday. Our unit (227) was beautiful and ultra modern. The unit was spacious and had an amazing view of the gulf. I would recommend this place anyone. Also, we booked directly through the... More

I agree with the rest of the reviewers. The murphy bed is a little awkward, but the room was very clean and the staff was very helpful. The views and proximity to the beach is what sold us and will have us coming back for years. We did not need to pack any chairs or umbrella for our stay. Those... More

This is an amazing place, a hidden paradise !!!! there are pros and cons for this place. Lets start with the pros: we traveled during may 2014 and we took a golf view room (2nd floor). The location of the hotel was perfect and we were having breakfast and lunch in our balcony watching the the beach; and spending part... More

There is no question that the location of The Beach on Longboat Key is spectacular, situated just steps away from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. And, we really appreciated being able to relax on the readily available beach chairs. However, we were disappointed with the size and layout of our room. We stayed in a first-floor studio which had a... More

We booked this sight unseen from the internet and were so pleased we wished we could have stayed longer! The kitchen in 107 is a full sized fridge, oven, microwave, dishwasher and fully stocked with paper towels, dish towels. And all kitchen items. Beach front is beautiful and heated pool is small but just right for this size property. Bbq... More

We were there for the first week of February, it was wonderful. We had a small one bedroom #225 it was clean, and well stocked including beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. The kitchen had pans and utensils for cooking. We could sleep with the slider open and listen to the waves. The beach is very nice right out front, and... More

Our stay was for a short time, but was very pleasant. Martha, at the office, is a doll, who can't do enough for you to make your stay a great one. She is helpful, courteous, and extremely nice. No room is a bad room, as each one looks out at the Gulf of Mexico (the first floor rooms are partial... More

My wife and I spent a relaxing weekend here in a first floor, studio room with a Murphy bed. Though we had never stayed here at this particular place on Longboat Key, we were surprised over and over by the positives at The Beach. We were surprised to get a weekend room at the last minute and at a reasonable... More

We stayed in unit 224 in 2012 and were happy with it, except for the Murphy Bed/TV issue. We booked room 223 this year, a one bedroom unit. Loved the view of the gulf, but the room was a disappointment. It had not been deep cleaned in at least several months. We could write our names in the dust on... More

We went here in July with my son, DIL and grandson. We brought our own tent for the beach which we left on the beach all week. The water was beautiful. The beach was clean and not crowded. The rooms were on the second floor. What a beautiful unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico. Each room has a full... More
