We just returned from a weekend at Longboat Key Club. It is very relaxing. We stayed in building 4 on the first floor and had a nice view of the ocean. The walkway to the beach is very close and the beach is beautiful and full of shells. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and cabanas are available. We didn't get in the pool but it looked very nice and had lots of chairs and umbrellas available. The resort has bicycles that you can use, spa services, a shuttle service, concierge, daily newspaper, and nightly turndown service. The resort has a great location with a short drive to St. Armand's Circle and it's also near a Publix and CVS. We had a refrigerator in our room and it was nice to run over to the CVS for some bottled water and wine to store in the fridge. The resort does stock drinks in the refrigerator door for you at a fee. The room was spacious with two sink areas in the bathroom so we could each have our own little space. The only issue we had was that the 11am checkout is fairly firm and we asked for an extra hour but the request was denied. They did offer to store our luggage for us until we were ready to leave which was nice. Also the safe in the room didn't work. Overall the property is beautiful and we hope to make it back to this resort soon!
