The Resort at Longboat Key Club

Sarasota, Gulf Coast Beaches

The hotel

Nestled on the white-sand beaches of Florida’s relaxed Gulf Coast, this delightful 410 acre resort-style hotel is full of relaxing features to make your holiday one to remember. You may find yourself unable to do anything but soak up the sunshine on one of the comfy loungers beside the beautiful Gulf-side swimming pool. Or you may prefer to take your relaxation to a whole new level by visiting The Spa and enjoying a treatment or massage. Either way, you’ll instantly forget about normal day-to-day life, while keen golfers will be in seventh heaven lowering their handicaps at one of the 2 challenging golf courses, and with 20 Har-Tru tennis courts, tennis enthusiasts are served up stirring sets of excitement daily.

We love to travel, but due to Covid we have not been anywhere since our stay at the Longboat Key Club in March. We knew they had precautions in place so we decided to go back to celebrate my mom's 65th birthday & my grandmother's 100th! Greg made our stay a memorable one. We had such a wonderful time. We had Latitudes brought up to the room and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the lobster and shrimp. The Roman Salad is excellent as well. Room service was very good and contactless. Housekeeping did a great job if we needed clean towels, etc. We felt and were very safe. Our son is in virtual school and Wifi worked great. We are already looking at dates for our next stay; can't wait! Read less

The Covid precautions taken throughout the resort made us feel very safe. The food was amazing as were the drinks. Good service poolside. Staff in the restaurant and front desk were so pleasant but the most amazing person we met was Jane, the poolside attendant. She was truly the hardest working person, always looking out for us without being intrusive. We will be back for sure. Thank you to all who made our celebration wonderful Read less

I’m a frequent traveler but due to Covid, I haven’t ventured out since February. I decided I needed a change of scenery for a few days, and went back to a favorite place that I probably hadn’t visited in over 10 years. It was a fabulous decision. Great staff, including Jane who helped me take out a bike and set me up at the pool, gorgeous rooms… Read more
