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.

The beach and service was amazing. Brian took such good care of us as we relaxed on our beach bed, ordered food and cocktails without ever needing to get up. Water was so clear we could see the bottom of the ocean. Thanks to Brian for making our stay that much better. I will be back!

My family and I have been staying at the Longboat Key Club & Resort for over a decade so naturally when my husband & I wanted a relaxing honeymoon we chose to stay at Longboat Key Club & Resort. The day of our flight came (we're from New York) & we called to extend our stay only to be told our "reservation fell through the cracks" so no one contacted us to tell us that our beachfront room reservation was now a golf course view room due to construction. It was 40 minutes before we had to leave for the airport so we were disappointed, but agreed (after being offered nothing in return & having to ask for some sort of compensation). We arrive to Longboat Key Club & Resort to find that there was no pool, no lobby, no restaurant in our hotel (so where would we use our $200 credit?). Not only that, but there was no signage about where to find the check-in area. We ended up cancelling our reservation without any apologies from employees for potentially ruining our honeymoon. This was truly a horrible experience, but was luckily salvaged by staying at the beautiful Zota Beach Resort. I have never been so disappointed with a hotel's customer service considering this was our HONEYMOON. They have officially lost not only mine & my husband's business, but the rest of our family's as well. Read less

The service on the beach was excellent! The friendly staff was accommodating and attentive to my needs. The bar and food service on the beach is over the top. Thank you Jane, Zack, and Cheryl for making my day so enjoyable.
