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.

Peter at the cool was amazing. Kind helpful and attentive. Next time we visit we will definitely be coming to stay with y’all and take advantage of the whole pool side. We also loved the gentleman playing the steel drums!

My children and I stayed here for 5 nights over 4th of July weekend. We stayed in building 5. The suite was spacious and clean but quite dated. To say a "golf view" was a bit of a stretch.

My children and I stayed here for 5 nights over 4th of July weekend. We stayed in building 5. The suite was spacious and clean but quite dated. To say a "golf view" was a bit of a stretch. If I ever returned I would not stay in this particular building again. The beach is beautiful and the attendants very polite and helpful. Having to drive 3 miles to use a pool was not exactly fun. My whole visit at this resort felt more like I rented a condo and you were on your own. Not exactly a pampered weekend. Read less

Good tennis program. Nice beach and pool. Lots of restaurants on site, none of which are great. Super location but was in need of renovation. Well they renovated and doubled the prices, guess we will go elsewhere.

Adam was so helpful on the beach with setting up our bed. He was very friendly and checked in on us every so often. He even went out of his way to check with his boss about giving us a discount on the beach bed we purchased for the day.

Having stayed here last year and absolutely loving it decided to visit again, however on this occasion only booked 2 days before arrival - therefore, was a little shocked to find out about the current ongoing renovations which ment no pool and no restaurants by pool or in the reception area (which had been relocated) - however, food / drink service still available from a bar area and on the beach - which was excellent. You can still use the small pool at the Marina - approx 2.5 miles down the road which the resort will happily provide transport to. On the plus side the resort and beach (which is delightful) were very quiet - so nice to be able to relax on a spacious beach without having other people on top of you. Love the location of this resort - many great restaurants all within a short dirve. Staff and friendly and helpful as ever. Didnt really miss the pool as beach so nice. Will definately be back once renovations complete. One more plus - got a good discount due to renovations. Read less
