I met my college roommate here for a 4 day girls' getaway. We opted for a deluxe unit where both the bedroom and living room face the gulf. The views were wonderful. We left the sliding doors open every night to have the lullaby of the surf! We had a huge balcony with lots of seating. The room was clean, the furnishings could have been updated, but certainly met our needs. It was comfortable and clean. The kitchen had everything needed for cooking a major meal or just serving what you carried in. We appreciated the many many glasses and cups...no need to run the dishwasher very often! Garbage was emptied and towels were changed every day. We were concerned about noise since we were right over the pool. Folks over 60 doing laps in the pool do not make noise! We never heard a sound! And the pool was nice and warm. I loved the place and return, but would not go for the deluxe unit. I would go for a typical one bedroom. The deluxe unit had the bathroom in the back of the bedroom. In the regular unit it is in the hall so you don't have to interrupt someone who is sleeping. Minor point, but important to some. The other negative is that the staff is only there from 9 until 5. We did not find out that our TV did not work until 8 p.m. on our third night (ok, we don't watch TV much). I think it worked, but there were no instructions for the remotes. We suggested they include instructions. They seemed to be surprised that we hadn't checked it earlier. Why would we? We did have a problem with our kitchen faucet. They were there within 10 minutes to repair it! One of the beds was not particularly comfortable, but that may have been personal taste. As you can see, our negatives are very minimal....almost picky! I would definitely return if I were to return to Longboat Key!
