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 loved our ocean front room that had been completely redone and updated!! Although they were only doing housekeeping every third day they made it so simple to get everything you needed by a simple text message… quickly and efficiently!! The beach is gorgeous and huge!! Service on the beach was great as well!!

Pack some wine and snacks…there is a good size fridge in the room so you can enjoy a glass sitting out on the balcony. A note on the service…it is top notch. The concierge, Cynthia, and driver, Jim, took the time to make you feel like a VIP. In so many places the customer service is lacking, but here you are treated…and FEEL like a valued guest…it is not just lip service. We really appreciated all of the courtesy and genuine kindness from all of the staff. We will be back! Read less

Allie I rarely type anything. Meeting Allie at LBK has been the highlight of our trip. She reminds me of why it's so important to have wonderful daughters that brighten our lives! Thank goodness for great women! Thank you Allie!
