My husband I spent three wonderful nights at this beautiful property and really loved it. We only wished we had stayed longer! There is so much to do and see in the area, on the different keys, as well as a lot of excellent restaurants to try. Our favorite day, however, was spent staying right on property and enjoying the beautiful pool and beach. The staff members are so helpful and courteous throughout the resort, especially Christian on the beach who ran around in the heat to secure us great spots and got us completely set up. He also took the time to give us some much needed suggestions about the area that really helped us navigate when we went exploring. I can not say enough great things about this resort and can't wait to go back!

We came here from Seattle to experience East Coast with our kids. Headed to Boston from here. Pros: the beach is beautiful, the sand is white and soft, the water is so clear. The weather was perfect. Our room was a spacious one bedroom and really was quite large and well appointed. The food at the pool/beach and Latitudes restaurant was delicious. Cons: this place is WAY overpriced. Not only R we paying way too much for the room for what they deliver, they nickel and dime you for everything. Pickleball costs $35 per person, not including paddles and balls. So my family of 4 would be $140 to get on the court. Chairs/umbrellas at the beach is $85/day. We r paying $1700/night for a room and can’t sit on the beach without paying more?!? The restaurant at the resort while delicious is over priced. Bottom line, 5 star prices not 5 star service, they didn’t even offer to help us with our bags to our room at check in.

The Saturday before Easter around 12:30, all chairs were taken at both the beach and pool. I was aware it’s the busiest day of the year. The beach staff were nice about it but not helpful. Olivia and Sully at the pool were also out of chairs, but went out of their way to find a solution. They turned a disappointing situation into a great day for my son and I. Their actions are a great example of what makes LBKC Resort a top resort in the area. Kudos to Olivia and Sully.

Manassas, Virginia68 contributions71 helpful votes
Part of my vacation fun is seeing how different hotels operate and rooms are laid out. I am also a tough reviewer. After 4 days there, I turned to my wife on the beach and said this is the first hotel I have no quibbles with! Everything is well thought out and the staff is amazingly well trained and helpful. Who trained these people? Room service quick, beach orders quick and the food at both exceed your expectations. So part of my vacation is ruined because I had no suggestions for improvements. We'll be back.

This resort is really nice. From our check in with Helena to the beautiful 10th floor room to our check out, it was outstanding. The rooms are tastefully updated and generous sized. The balcony was large enough to have a table and two chairs for watching the shore. Olivia at the pool was efficient and friendly. Alexander at the Latitudes restaurant was unique and seemed to enjoy his job. The food was very good. If you add shrimp to your salad, know that they are enormous! The only small complaints we had were that the lights on the microwave and the clock are super bright in the middle of the night! (We covered them with a towel). Great beach for walking and easy drive by car to nice restaurants and St Armand’s Circle shopping.

BEACH VIEW ROOMS MAY BE AT POOL AND NOT RELAXING OVERALL. Room description for beach front rooms do not mention you may be over pool. Our room was three floors above the pool, beyond are palm trees and then the beach. The room was advertised as Beach View. In the hotels response below, the GM description is inaccurate. This further exemplifies the problem with this place. They are totally disregarding language in describing room. Upon complaining to the front desk, we were met with deflections. I asked to speak to Manager and was presented with Burt, the Front Desk Manager. He cut me off twice as I tried to convey my experience. As I tried a third time to share, he picked up his radio and started calling "Security". Never have I ever experienced this treatment. Rude. Embarrassing. I walked out stunned. The noise at the pool is very loud. Little management of noise between hours of 10pm to 8am. Expect workers to be moving chairs at 7am. This is not a view of a beach. It is a view of a pool. Clearly not meeting the "Beach View" description that is conveyed on their website.

Responded 4 weeks ago
Mr. Kerrigan, thank you for taking the to provide us with your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. We do take pride in ensuring our guests have a wonderful experience and if you recall during our meeting on your last day with us when you brought to our attention the shortfall regarding noise the night prior and experience, I specifically requested what could we do to turn around your stay and you mentioned just hearing your feedback was enough. At no point, did we false advertise our location since we placed you in the same exact building as your previous stay the year prior. We have 4 buildings with beach view and took your suggestion of requesting the guests at check-in if they would prefer to be at one of the buildings in between the pool, however, all rooms have beach view. At any point during your stay, we would have been happy to provide a room move to a different building to rectify the additional noise with rehearsal dinner in the afternoon/evening. Again, we have apologized regarding your recent stay with us and wish you provided us the opportunity to rectify your stay prior to your departure.

Service is extraordinary. Justin and his beach team (Ram & Kyle) are extremely welcoming and helpful and truly make the beach experience one of a kind. Rachel and Natalie provided top quality food and beverage service right to us on the beach to bring the whole experience to the next level. 1000 out of 10 recommend LBKC for your next beach vacation!

Even when out on the beach at the Longboat Key you find the representatives like Justin are service minded and support the initiative for the Opal Company. Justin was very professional and pleasant to work with. His attitude represented his company well and he spoke highly of his counterparts.

This was our first stay at the resort. We were first greeted by Dean, aka "Dean Martin," and he welcomed us like we were celebrities coming in. He helped us get to the room, gave great recommendations, and any time he saw us around the resort during our stay, he checked in on us. What a great first face to see when getting checked in. Kyle checked us in once inside. He was friendly, answered questions, and explained the resort map and amenities. Our room was on the 10th floor and had incredible views. My spouse and I were celebrating our birthdays, so we felt this was the best gift in many ways. The view was hard to put into words. We travel quite a bit, and I don't always get a chance to return and give reviews, but this place is worth all five stars. The resort is on the ocean, with chairs set up for you on the beach, umbrellas, food/drink service, and a great pool. The resort is absolutely beautiful. We are already planning our next trip. Highly recommend!!!
