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 have a trial in Sarasota coming up and I wanted to try this well known resort for a night. It is a beautiful location on Longboat Key with gorgeous beaches but that’s where it ends. Granted part of the resort is under construction but the building I was in was completely deserted excepting me. Still the hugely expensive room was a closet, far smaller than a Motel 6. There was no hot water. The tv was a 19” circa 1998 tech. The furnishings were at best ok. But when I called to inquire with the manager about the size and lack of basic necessities the Millennial Assistant Manager responding actually lectured me about being demanding while pool and one of the buildings was undergoing refurbishment. No apology; no attempt to help. Rude, sneering and superior. Read less

Due to construction and Sept being the slow time of the year, there were very few people at the resort. Usually only 6-8 other people on the entire beach. Jane, Zach, and the rest of the beach crowd took great care of us.

We stayed at the Moorings for 3 nights in late August 2019. The facilities and staff are excellent. Restaurant had good food. In particular, Peter, the pool attendant, provided outstanding customer service! So close to Publix and CVS you could walk there. And we learned to play pickleball on their courts, so much fun. Will stay here again!
