smaller complex, but everything is well done...plenty of room in the two bedroom unit....very quiet, on small harbor, and right across the road from the beach....great sunsets on the beach.....only complaint from me was that although wifi worked well with smartphone, not so well with tablet....had to use in outside hallway for coverage.

Loved the area and the beach was the best of any we visited (we went to sanibel, seista keys, Anna Maria and venice beaches). The unit was spacious with updated kitchen. If you are wanting party night life you will need to go off of longboat key. I wasn't looking for that...great relaxing vacation

We had a two bedroom unit at Longboat Beach Club; the accommodations were clean and recently updated with a large kitchen with stainless steel appliances and comfortable furnishings. Our unit was quite roomy and had two full bathrooms and a washer and dryer.

Internet is extremely slow, and almost not usable. Those units that are updated are very nice. Not a lot of amenities but great sunsets. Boat slips available for those wanting to bring a boat. Publix down the road.

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,...

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...

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...

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...
