So disappointed in this resorts customer service!!! A group of 11 beach-getaway needing moms are here for the weekend. The reservations department and the Home owners association do not communicate well. There is a very fixable parking issue during an off season time that this resort is not upholding their word on after we are here instead of being hospitable!... More

We were disappointed to hear of this guests' recent experience at our Beach Castle Resort on Longboat Key. RVA and it's affiliated properties have always advertised a limit on the number of parking spaces available per rental unit. Our records indicate that since this group reserved two separate units, they were given four parking passes; a generous amount for the... More

We stayed in unit 5 which is a two bedroom oceanside with a screened in patio with a peak of the ocean. The building is right on the ocean. Just walk through a short path through mangroves and you are on the beach. Plenty of beach chairs. The unit is spacious, nicely decorated and appointed. It was very clean. No... More

My hubby, daughter and daughter's friend all had a great stay at the Beach Castle over Spring Break! Great unit, wonderful air conditioning, ample kitchen, fun screened in room, superb locaton and fabulous beach. What a great way to explore Longboat Key, St. Armand's Circle, Siesta Key and Casey Key. Ran into people who have been coming here for 15... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Beach Castle at least 15 times over the past three decades. When our children were younger we had a number of family vacations and in recent years thet have spent some time with us at our units or in other units. The location is beautiful and the access to the superb beach... More

Thank you to this guest for their recent feedback of Beach Castle Resort. Our records do indicate the guest contacted a member of our Management Team in regards to the timing of the grounds provider maintaining the property. We agreed that this was completely unacceptable, offered an appropriate apology to the guest, and have since spoken with the company that... More

This was our 1st time staying at Beach Castle. We found the condo spotless, the grounds getting constant attention. The staff was attentive, courteous, polite and helpful. We had a plane issue that caused us to arrive late...one phone call and the keys were waiting for us.The amenities were very nice and to us above board. The laundry facilities allowed... More

Our first trip to Longboat Key and Beach Castle Resort. Definitely not our last! If you want a relaxing low key vacation, this could be it. We stayed in a second floor condo. Spacious, clean, full kitchen, bath, living room and bedroom. A large lovely screened in lanai! Pool was immaculate and a great whirlpool as well. We stayed across... More

This was our first time going to Beach Castle and we would go back for sure. We stayed on the Gulf side. Our unit was very clean. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of sheets and towels. The perks that we really enjoyed were the beach chairs, beach towels and umbrellas that are provided. The gas grill is... More

Beach Castle on Long Boat Key is located in a narrow area of paradise, going from a dock in Sarasota Bay to the Gulf beach. It is an easy walk to top restaurants. You would think with such a great property, management would make every effort to make Beach Castle first class. Unfortunately, you would be wrong. One clue is... More

We were disappointed to hear of this guest's recent experience at Beach Castle Resort. Each unit is privately owned, and as the traveler mentioned there are several management companies present within this community. We, RVA, operate the front office and although the office does follow standard operating hours for a resort environment of this type, we also have after hours... More

We rented a one-bedroom unit for Labor Day weekend. Although the hotel was completely booked, we never had problems with parking, beach access, or the pool. There was always plenty of space. The unit we stayed in was large, clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the private lanai for breakfast. The one thing to bear in mind is that... More

We loved staying at Beach Castle in April 2013! The condos are individually owned and then managed by a central office. The place isn't too big, so it's not very noisy. We had a 2 bedroom unit on the 2nd floor. Decent sized kitchen, bedrooms, and dishwasher. We enjoyed the 2 balconies also tremendously. There is a nice pool and... More
