This resort was first class! Our junior suite in Building Two was beautiful, clean and comfortable - the bed was the most comfortable, away from home, we had ever slept on. The view of the sea on first entering the room took my breath away. The facilities within the suite were well thought out - everything you could wish for.... More

Newly acquired by Opal Properties, The Longboat Key Club has seen 2 of its 4 star ratings fall into the Gulf of Mexico. I have been a guest 2 times a year for several years and am disappointed that now one can go for rest and relaxation only Mon. through Thursday. Priority at the beach and pool is given to... More

My husband and I traveled from Orlando for a weekend anniversary getaway. Danielle at the concierge desk was very helpful in getting us a car and dinner reservations. Cheryl, the bartender at the main bar was very helpful and friendly. Our room was very nice. We stayed in 6201 on the lagoon. It was plenty of space and i loved... More

Spent four days in paradise. Extremely sad about returning to atlanta. The water here is the cleanest and clearest in Florida. The accommodations are amazing but the staff here was the best part. Ozzy and Eli pampered us and treated us like royalty. Those two are the face of long boat key resort to us. They were incredible. Also Anita... More

I’ve read some of the mixed reviews and I have to tell you I just don’t get any of it. Maybe we were lucky because we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite or because we had a recently renovated room or maybe we were lucky because every staff member we encountered just happened to be nice to us and...

Dear Shareee: Thank you for the fabulous review and the “5”! I appreciate that you took the time to go into in depth explanations of your stay and that you loved your suite. The suite you were in is exactly the same “remodeled” as our other suites, so if someone asked for a remodeled suite or not, they will get... More

This one is really on the beach....beautiful long beach walks, but also very convenient to Sarasota downtown. We had a two bedroom suite, very roomy with two balconies overlooking beach. We were only a couple (we got upgraded! I think because we made reservations 3 months in advance....but I think the 2 BR would be comfortable for a family of... More

I was disappointed in this property, especially relative to the price. I had a double room facing the ocean. The buildings and room were somewhat dated and not up to par with other luxury properties. The bathroom was dated with finishes that were 3 star caliber. The cabinet door to my vanity didn't close properly. The service was very friendly... More

My husband and I only had one night here (fast business trip), but were so impressed that we are going to schedule a return trip. The location is great, just over the bridge from St Armand's Circle, with its great shopping and dining.
