We stayed in Unit 22 and it was clean, comfortable and well-decorated with nice tile all over. The room colors aren't nearly as garish as they appear on the website and are actually much subtler and classy in person. Beach Castle was overall pretty nice with just a few inconveniences. The laundry area was in the next building so there... More

Clean, nice-sized rooms, responsive office. Not luxurious but, for the price, very good accommodations.

My Dad & I just returned from 1 and 1/2 months at Beach Castle Resort. We arrived just after the big freeze that killed the FLA tomato crop and stayed until 3/2/10. We have stayed in Longboat Key for 20 years+ and enjoyed our stay at Beach Castle quite a bit. First, let me say that the cold weather was... More

Property is 8 miles from St. Armand's Circle so if you want to be close to Sarasota this is not your best bet. However, if you enjoy Longboat Key this is at the quieter end and is only 4 miles to the small bridge over to Bradenton Beach. Also only 2 blocks from two decent restuarants (we enjoyed the Blue...

Beach Castle is uniquely set on a narrow section of Longboat Key, giving you access not only to the Gulf of Mexico's BEAUTIFUL waters. But, from Beach Castle you can also access the bay and do things like fish from the dock or take a kayak or canoe out into the bay. The staff is INCREDIBLY friendly. I felt super... More

My husband and I are beach people and couldn't wait for our kids to see the ocean for the first time. When we arrived we headed straight to the beach which has soft white sand and gorgeous blue/green water. We had a beautiful second floor condo, with a great view. The porch was great for morning coffee and sunset dinners.... More

My wife and I were looking for a wonderful place to get away and enjoy a week of our honeymoon. We both loved the water and beach so the idea of Longboat Key sounded like the right spot for us. I had been to Beach Castle in the past with family and always remembered the qualities about it that kept... More

WE have been going for a number of years and keep going back. The location straddles the main road so you have access to the Gulf with a beautiful beach and from the other side,can see the lights of Sarasota across the "Bay" .It is a lowrise complex,very comfortable and easy to walk anywhere. Great pool area. Talk to Lissy... More

March 2010 will be our 10th stay at Beach Castle. We love the quiet, family atmosphere and spectacular setting. The grounds are well kept, the staff friendly and helpful and the location is convenient. This is our home away from home.
