My wife and I stayed here recently. The check in process was good, although they only had us down for three days rather than four, however, this was fixed quickly. When we got to the room, the view was excellent. However, the bed was unstable with the foot raising up by about 6 inches when sitting on the head of... More

Longboat Key Club & Resort is not perfect (room service meals, not service,could certainly could be improved) but the junior suites, personnel, amenities are difficult to match for the price and location. This was our choice four times in a row for a U.S. beach vacation. Hard pressed to come up with complaints. Always treated politely. Never had a problem... More

This is the favourite destination in Florida for my wife and myself. We had stayed previously at this property on four separate occasions staying for two or three weeks each visit. This time the reservation department had been unable to accommodate us in our usual top suite overlooking the lagoon but they suggested a different suite which was on the... More

Everyone in our group loved everything but in the main building which has just been renovated they have only 1 very slow elevator working. There are no freight or service elevators so it stops on all floors for staff with large carts and such. Was told by staff it has been that way over 2 months. Don't understand it at... More

Benninghove, Manager at Resort at Longboat Key Club, responded to this review

Jaymaxx: We certainly appreciate your group visiting the Longboat Key Club and Resort again this year for another successful event. I do apologize that having the one elevator in service caused you any discomfort during your stay. We recently completed 7 million dollars in upgrades to all of our guest buildings. This included all new windows, glass railings, doors, sliding... More

Arriving to Sarasota airport, , which I love as it is small and quaint, we hailed a taxi and arrived at this hotel/resort in 20 minutes. Cab fare was about $35 with tip. Check in , we were immediatly greeted and wisked to the front lobby, assured our luggage will be ready in our room. Check in was fast and... More

From the moment that we pulled up at the resort until the minute that we checked out, the staff could not have been more attentive to our needs. The bell man was there to open the car doors and greet us and then stayed with us until all of our luggage (and it seemed like worldly possessions) were in our... More

We had a great stay at the Longboat; we travelled there for a work convention and it was perfect. The room had a kitchen which was perfect as I need to eat breakfast and don't always want to go out for food. We had a great balcony which was good for early morning sun tanning. It was right beside the... More

The Longboat Key Club & Resort, nestled on the Gulf of Mexico, is to a vacation what the champagne region of France is to making wine - the leader of the pack. A short 15 minute drive from downtown Sarasota, a very busy cultural center, not only offers a true point of relaxation but it defines the word "service". You... More

We went to this resort for a wedding and at first were wowed by the service. We were met at the car by two attendants who opened our doors for us and escorted us inside for check-in.
