I get one family vacation a year and booked it at this location. What a mistake! None of the staff takes ownership or pride in this resort, which explains why the rooms are in such terrible condition. The staff either notices the problems with the room and does not report it or management does not care or can afford to... More

LBKC obviously has fans and those who will find fault no matter what. As an overseas visitor we found it to be exactly as expected. Beach front properties can be affected by sand salt and humidity but we did not find it tatty at all. It has fantastic views out over the gulf, the pool area was busy but the... More

I wanted to give the LBKC a 4-star, but our experience on the last day left a bad taste in our mouths. Check-out is at 11, and we asked for a late check-out for 12:30 pm as our flight back home was not until 5 pm. They said they couldn't accomodate this request even thought we spent several thousand dollars... More

We stayed on our boat at Lonboat Key Club Marina from 718/14-7/20/14. We were impressed with every aspect of the stay. First, the dock hands are always around to assist in docking, refueling, and unloading. From our first step onto the property it was a great expirence. We were docked in row H which is a must stay slip location.... More

We stayed here a few years ago & looked forward to returning. The location is fantastic with equally an great beach. The pool is comfortable & not too "resorty." We again chose to stay in the lagoon rooms for the view & quiet. The rooms are not as nice as they once were during our last stay. They showed the... More

We stayed at the Resort at Longboat Key for 4th of July weekend. We had made reservations early in the year as we have stayed several times in another resort of the Opal family, the Sandpearl. Now, it is not like the Sandpearl but it is still nice. The grounds are nice and well kept. They are building a new... More

Very good customer service. Mattress was literally a dream to sleep on. Customer service very good. Matt was great at the front desk - adored his accent. It would have been nice to be near the pool as we were in a distant building. Free drink was nice with a coupon at check-in.

We've stayed here 10+ times over the years......but..... Once a 4 Star property, the LBK club is suffering from years of deferred maintenance. The facade and many of the interior walls are crumbling. There are bugs in the room. The common areas are worn and dated. A friendly and helpful staff can't quite compensate for these issues. Our room had... More
