I feel like a princess at this resort. The beach is wonderful, the rooms are spacious. The service is excellent. I even got champagne and balloons on my birthday! The outdoor pool is right next to the beach. This place is perfect for families!

We visited the resort last week and had an unpleasant experience from the start. The hotel is lovely (although it could use some updating) and the views are beautiful. However, our problems began before we even checked in. We needed to cancel one night of our 3 night reservation because the blizzard in New York prevented us from flying down... More

The Resort at Longboat Key Club is wonderful place. Though it is not meant for people who want to party, it is excellent for people who need to sit back, relax, oh, and enjoy an adult beverage. The facilities are kept in a very nice condition and the staff is friendly and helpful. Stacey who was down at the pool... More

The service was great at the whole facility,but what really stuck out to us was at the pool area. Allie was one of the best servers we have ever had, very pleasant and a lot of fun to converse with, she was very professional and always in the the vicinity if we needed anything. The BIGGEST little thing we saw... More

First time we had stayed at this resort, we chose this report for its location and it was one of the more expensive hotels so presumed it would be good !!!! Room was in very poor condition and very worn out as a lot of the communal areas were, air condition couldn't be left on as the noise was horrendous... More

Great resort but setback from the highway. I believe they have three golf courses, tennis and their private beach with a pool. About five or six restaurants of some time type throughout the property. We had a lagoon facing property with a great view of the Lagoon down to the highway with lots of wildlife.

Dear Jim1008 Thank you for the “5” review. I am glad you enjoyed your lagoon view suite and the view of the wildlife. Hopefully you experienced the manatee and dolphin coming through the area. It is a majestic site indeed. We are set back about 6 blocks away from the Gulf of Mexico Drive that travels our peaceful Island. Hope... More
