I just came back from an excellent stay at the Resort at Longboat Key Club, as a hotel guest (and not as a member). The facilities were excellent and we had the perfect location facing the constant white-capped waves. In particular, the fitness center and personnel were outstanding.
Although we had the perfect room, we did lack one item: a washer and dryer, which was important for us given the length of stay (over a week, as well as having just spent the week prior elsewhere on the East Coast). I brought the "problem" to the attention of the Manager, Mathew Gordon. He was fabulous in his working through the issue with as many alternatives as conceivably. Initially he provided us access to an unoccupied suite which had a washer and dryer. Then he graciously upgraded us to a junior suite in the same building with the same fabulous view, one that had a washer and dryer, and at the same lower price as our initial reservation. Further, weather conditions in the north caused us to need to extend one extra day but not known until the last minute cancellation of our flight. Once again, Mathew Gordon was splendid in his handling of our issue, and allowed the junior suit to be ours and at the former, lower rate.
While all personnel were helpful at all times, Mathew Gordon went out of his way to stay on top of our visit to make sure that we received his attention at all times. Not an easy thing to do with a busy resort.
As another Reviewer has said, it is an "Amazing" resort and I would certainly recommend it to all, and certainly if you are either a beach person, a physical person (looking for tennis, golf, the fitness center, long walks on the beach and the gated area, etc.), and/or both.
