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 staff here has been absolute incredible and the property is beautiful with nicely renovated rooms with magical views. Carlos at the pool took great care of us when it was packed there. He found us 4 chairs side-by-side (which was a big feat given the party tak Ng place by the pool which limited chairs), moved a couple of heavy umbrellas to provide us shade, and had an absolutely incredible attitude for someone who had been working for 9+ hours in the hot Florida sun! From start to finish, we haven’t had a poor interaction with a single person. Highly recommend this resort! Read less

Jordan and Luke Thomson waited on us beachside with umbrellas, chairs and kayak/paddle board rentals for several days. Both of them provided the most outstanding service. Always had a smile and were willing to help and continued to check on us. We had an amazing visit and will absolutely be back!
