This is our third trip to Longboat Key in two years, and our first stay here. Of the three RCI properties, this is the least lavish and perhaps the oldest. The two bedroom units were quite large and very comfortable, with a wrap around porch and lovely views to enjoy all of the time. The appliances were a bit weary,... More

The resort is very clean, quiet and spacious. There are absolutely no activities, no gym, no pool side bar and the office is only open from 9 to 5. The resort is close to the beach and there are bikes and beach chairs and umbrellas available free of charge. This resort is great for older couples or anyone just looking... More

My family has a time share at the Longboat Bay Club where we stay every other year. The resort is located on Cranes Bayou and from our wrap-around balcony, we can see amazing sunrises and sunsets, plus watch the manatees swimming in the cove around the docks, and also see the Gulf of Mexico which is right across the 2-lane...

We had a great time in Longboat Bay Club. We brought six 21 year old guys there because it was a cheap exchange to do so. We quickly realized that this place was not for people of our age, it is more of a retirement vacation home that is away from all of the hustle and bustle that might be... More

The unit is somewhat updated and the carpet looks ok. Beach is across two lane highway and is tiny. Pool and hot tub cleaned by Tues. no maid service whole week. Starter stuff like paper towel and toilet paper. Then buy your own. Publix near by. Umbrellas and beach chairs a joke. Nicer unbrellas in office, but be turned by... More

Our first but not last trip to Longboat Key and staying at Longboat Bay Club. The condo is dated but clean. Our unit was very spacious. The sofa has seen better days in fact it should be replaced. The pool area and bathrooms are very clean but my husband really got bitten by bugs when he used the outside grill.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Longboat Bay Club. Our unit was #202 and we had a perfect view of the Bay out back. We could see a glimpse of the ocean out front. We loved seeing the manatees and we enjoyed the pool and hot tub very much. The pool water temperature is perfect! Our condo was HUGE! More... More

no problem with unit 105 in the week after the negative report from some visitor several decks to catch the sun, spacious and well appointed with stainless appliances and granite. Lots of room for a family.

Beware of room 105. AC unit soaked rug. Management put down three pool towels. Took 24 hours for AC service to arrive. Five hours after repair rug was wet again. Then a column of ants entered the room. When the ants checked in, we checked out losing three days of vacation.
