After 50+ years of vacationing on Longboat, I discovered Casa del Mar beach resort, after our family's usual spot closed for renovation.. What a revelation ! Beautiful grounds, fantastic units, and great service. They keep the grounds immaculate, and make you feel comfortable in every way. For the last few years, my daughter and her family have now taken over,... More

Spent last week at Casa Del Mar. Been going for years. Think now better than ever! Stayed in E15 second floor beach front 2 bedroom condo. Best view on Longboat Key!! Our unit completely redone. Beautiful!! Lanai has heavenly view. Hard to tear myself away. Beach just couple steps away.....easy to get a chair. Pool is huge, warm water and... More

Location, location location! I can't believe they built a resort this close to the beach - they probably don't any more. We stayed in E15 and you could almost touch the Gulf. The second floor units (like this one) have a screened porch (lanai) and the first floors an open patio. Otherwise the unit was recently updated, neat, and clean.... More

Change is sometimes good. Not in the case of Casa del Mar. First, for the positive points: Mark the Manager had some big shoes to fill. DM, the previous manager, was an amazing person and truly well suited for the job! That being said, Mark was super accommodating when we asked to move units. He takes the time to sit... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thorough and helpful review. I’m really happy that you found our staff and environment welcoming upon your arrival. I am, however, disappointed that after twenty years of staying at CDM, you found your stay, this time, less than perfect. Casa Del Mar always strives to find a balance when catering... More

This is our second time staying at Casa del Mar. We had a beachfront ground floor unit. On the plus side, the ground floor unit gives easy access to the pool and the beach. On the down side, you can hear your upstairs neighbors. Our upstairs neighbor was an early riser and woke us up every day at 6 AM... More

I almost hate to write a review. I don't want the secret to get out. Probably my easiest review to ever write. I can't think of a single negative to say. Best trip in years.

Comfortable lodging. Adequate parking. Friendly staff. Lovely beach. Nice pool. Reasonable prices. No, it is not the most comfortable place I've ever stayed. Beds could be more comfy, shower heads deserve an upgrade, and cable channels should be expanded. If you're looking for 5-star accommodations you should book a room at the Ritz. This place gets 4 stars because I... More
