This resort has a very nice beach set up. The beach chairs and umbrellas were plentiful and comfortable. We also enjoyed food by the pool. Near the pool, there were complimentary bikes we borrowed which took us to other beautiful parts of the resort. The Junior Suite was spacious and the balcony area was just the perfect place to relax.... More

Rented a 2br beach front suite. While pricey, it was the perfect amount of room for our family. Loved the porch..which ran the length of the rental. Very clean. Fine linens and comfy beds. Great to be right on the beach. big and clean pool which was nicely heated. Check in staff could use a little class time in customer... More

I recently went to visit family in the Sarasota area with my college age daughters. To surprise them I booked 3 nights of our stay at the Longboat Key Club, Resort. We had a Jr suite in bldg 2 overlooking the pool area. The room was comfortable for the 3 of us (1 King bed and a queen size pull... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Resort at Longboat Key Club in early March and it was an excellent experience. We were given a suite in building 6, which I am guessing is the newest of the many resort buildings. Although we did not have a Gulf view, our very spacious suite had a beautiful view of a lagoon...

Terrible northeastern weather. This resort was the prescription! The location is fantastic, our room was located in a building facing the ocean, with unimpeded sunset views and the sound of the surf through open windows. Our room are well equipped, with a mini-kitchen, sofa, big TV and lots of closet space. We did not feel cramped at all. One of... More

Seriously, look no further, because you’ll never find a more spectacular experience, nor a more spectacular sunset! Speaking of sunsets, everyone knows that the Gulf Coast sunsets are the best in the world. So when we received our invitation to our friend’s destination wedding at the Longboat Key Club Resort, we couldn’t wait to pack for the perfect wedding venue!... More

Just know you're paying for the beach...and it's worth every penny! The resort is outdated and the rooms aren't exactly clean, but the beach is wonderful. I'm certain there are better accommodations along the gulf coast that offer a beautiful beach and better (cleaner) rooms! We enjoyed watching the dolphins at the beach and the beautiful sunsets. We didn't enjoy... More

We have been here several times over the years but this last visit was just not that great. When we checked in and I went to plug in my computer the baseboards were dusty. Not something you expect when you pay $550 a night. The food was just average and the service was very slow. They need to up their... More

Dear Deesgirl66: The suites should be perfect upon check-in. We have reviewed baseboards with our housekeeping team and they are all being checked this week. I am sorry you had some difficulties on this stay , but hopefully since you have been here many times over the past several years, you understand that is not our standard or typical. We... More

Our stay started off on the wrong foot. We were supposed to get an early check in, but had to wait over three hours for our room to be ready. Once we were settled in and "learned the ropes", things went smoothly. The accommodations were quite comfortable and we had a very nice gulf view. The pool and beach were... More

We stayed at LBK twice in Feb. The Junior Suite was very quiet with a great balcony and the 2 bedroom suite we were upgraded to (without asking) was very good.
