We stayed at RLKC for 2 nights to celebrate my wife's birthday. At checkin, Dante made it clear that we would not like the view in the available Jr. Suites, which is what we had reserved. He said he had already been authorized to upgrade our reservation to a 1 brdrm suite. When Dante said this would be in Bldg... More

Dear Ted-Claudia: Thank you for staying with us and your review. I have spoken to Dante and I believe there may have been some confusion in what he said. There is not a view challenge with our junior suites as many of them our similar views to the 1-bedrooms. Also, our buildings were all built at the same time and... More

My wife and I just got back from a little slice of Paradise. From check in to check out the experience was excellent. Staff was very friendly, without being fake. The location was perfect,the resort's private beach was wonderful. The beach was never crowded and many times felt like you had the beach to yourself. Quality of food was excellent,... More

Accommodations at this resort are not clean, the pool is in terrible condition and not children friendly. Too many adults drinking and carrying on around the pool, which children should not be around. If you rent from an owner, inside or outside of the main hotel, you cannot use their facilities (i.e., food and beverage, and/or beach rental). The quality... More

Dear Charlotte N: I appreciate you taking the time to post a review, but since it sounds like you were staying as a guest of a Non-Participating owner and not with the hotel itself we have no control or access to those few units. If you book through the hotel (Resort at Longboat Key Club), then you would gain access... More

I planned this getaway to LBKC as a surprise for my husband! And what a fabulous surprise it was, for both of us!! To begin with, our room was spectacular! We stayed in building 4 in a Junior Suite. This building faces away from the pool, so that all you see from your balcony is the gorgeous sky and crystal... More

I stayed here on business in early June. The resort is nice. Beach was clean and pool seemed nice as well. Hotel staff were very accommodating. The room was nice as well. The toilet made funny noises at night which was disturbing but other than that it was good. My only complaint was someone before me had left false eyelashes... More

We stayed at the this hotel on June 5 and 6, 2014 and had a wonderful time. When we checked in, they double upgraded us to a two bedroom suite. The room was simply spectacular. It had a 40 foot balcony and seemed to be directly over the beach on the 8th floor. The view was so good that we... More

The views, tennis, bicycle riding, and beach have made this resort a pleasure for us to visit each year. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We always choose the lagoon view because it is quiet and lovely with the beautiful water, palm trees, and small marina just below the balcony. The lights across the bridge make a spectacular nighttime... More
