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.

Having just returned from a further holiday at this resort we would like to again commend Jane who controls the pool/beach area. She is the most dedicated, efficient and caring person, who holds the whole area together. When she is not there, the difference is very noticeable.. She goes out of her way to ensure that each individual guest is cared for in a special way, remembering names and needs. A tremendous asset to the Hotel. Likewise Paula who is part of the Pool Bar staff undertakes her duties in exactly the same way. Always has time for the guests and a tremendous sense of humour, definitely "service with a smile" at all times. Again a excellent asset for the Hotel. Read less

Jane & Paula at the pool are the hardest working women in show business! They always make sure your umbrella is where you want it & your food & drinks are timely. The only negative is that my husband was traveling on business, & you can’t use cash or credit at the bar/restaurant, you must room charge everything. Made it a little difficult for me,… Read more

We are more than very disappointed that we received an email, with that Less Than 2 Weeks’ Notice to Major Construction to the resort – Outrageous! After a great deal of time choosing and planning not only our destination but even longer to decide on the very best accommodation, we were excited and looking forward to our annual family holiday at the Resort at Longboat Key Club. This was booked over 5 months ago and yesterday we received the email of major disruption work that will materially affect our experience. We will now have to select another Hotel and as this is later in the session the cost will increase, we are more than disappointed with the haphazard, unprofessional, non-caring delivery of the message and information that has been delivered late. We are furious and if this is a reflection of the Hotel Mangement Team service levels this is NOT good. I would be very concerned if I was the Hotel team and the construction teams have, only just project planned the works and have decided to start in 2 weeks? If not, why could't the guest/clients have been told earlier. Very Poor. Note to Hotel Manager – We fully understand the offers you have posted, so please don’t repeat them or use them in any response as a timid excuse or make up. Read less

The resort is really superb... great location on the beach, every amenity imaginable and lots of choice in dining. The waterfront service provided by Paula, Jane and Mandy was really noteworthy - they are all so professional. Also, St Armand's Circle is just a five minute drive... We will certainly return for a future stay!

Excellent accommodations and wonderful poolside service from Jane and Paula!! Everyone was so accommodating, the beach was clean, music at the pool and always looking to see we were satisfied. Massages at the spa were excellent!
