We stayed two nights in this "luxury" resort. The bathroom (60's style) had a shredded bathroom door, mildew. The wall style air conditioner was ridiculously loud. The room was in sad need of a total redo. We opted for this resort over the Ritz Carlton. What a mistake!

My girlfriend and I had a great week stay at LBR. The room was on the 10th floor of the tower with a beautiful gulf view. Our room was very clean and was cared for each and every day. They do leave you the (2) bottles of water and a few other amenities each day which you are charged for... More

We stayed in Sarasota for some wonderful nights at this resort. The beach was crowded but beautiful. The property was will kept and the plantings were charming. A remodeled beach bar by a tropical pool area was very nice. The other bar on the eighth floor had a great view down the beach with a pretty interior and a nice... More

First of all, it was $340 a night. And then at 12:30 in the morning the fire alarm went off and then we were told there's no fire. The food wasn't good either. We were also supposed to get a corner room and we didn't.

Nice place but rather noisey, spring break week, but loud in the middle of the night. The room was nice but nothing over the top not much of a "Wow Factor" for the money. Breakfast was good. Friendly service.

The cost of this hotel is ONLY because of its location. They have good service and a great beach. The room is well a 2 star room. Dirty carpet, dirty furnishings, small ants in the kitchen area and even found a dead fly in the rollaway they sent to my room. I would not ever stay there again even if... More
