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.

My wife and I come down to Longboat Key Club each winter for a several weeks stay and are consistently in awe of the natural beauty, beachfront location and very high-quality staff. The resort recently underwent an extensive common area and rooms renovation which makes the value even greater, particularly considering several types of suites with kitchen and in unit laundry facilities.

We had an amazing two bedroom suite - stunning view! Water and beach is just steps away. Double deck allows for dining, sunning and relaxing. Everything looks great and service was excellent. Beautiful grounds to walk and many nice amenities (clay tennis courts, bicycles) Masks were worn by staff, but dinner in the restaurant was not socially distanced and it was too cold to sit outside (too windy). Cons: food is just okay at the resort; bedding is not luxurious, temperature is difficult to control. Read less

This was our first visit to LBK and LBK Club did not disappoint!!! The room amenities and decor were inviting and comfortable (my only suggestion is to add a full-length mirror), but the real star of the show was Jane!! She worked tirelessly from beach, to pool, to bike rental and was ALWAYS friendly and happy to help!! Cheers to our next visit!

We came for a long weekend and found our room to be clean and quiet with a nice view. Room service was prompt and all housekeeping requests were addressed efficiently. The staff was very pleasant and helpful

I have been a member of the club for about 4 years. All of the beach staff are wonderful, including those responsible for the chairs, the food, etc. But if there is a problem, Jane takes care of everything. In the old days you could always see her smile, but for now we have to read her eyes behind the mask. She is always there to greet my son… Read more
I have been a member of the club for about 4 years. All of the beach staff are wonderful, including those responsible for the chairs, the food, etc. But if there is a problem, Jane takes care of everything. In the old days you could always see her smile, but for now we have to read her eyes behind the mask. She is always there to greet my son and I when we arrive, and if not she comes to find us and say hello. She always asks if we have everything we need. She goes above and beyond the call of duty and has made our days at the beach very pleasant. I look forward to going each week and know everything will be taken care of in the most professional and considerate manner. Thank you Jane, thank you Cheryl and thanks to all of the boys. Read less
