We were able to get a last minute reservation at the Resort at LKC. We were suppose to travel to the east coast, but it looked like the weather was going to be rainy and chilly. So glad we changed our plans to Longboat because the weather was perfect and the beach was amazing. We stayed in a junior suite...

I won't touch on the obvious stuff other reviews would go over. There is much discussion about the whole extra cost for renting umbrellas and chairs blah blah blah. I can understand that initial concern but you need to understand that it creates a very civilized and way more enjoyable experience. The beach and the chairs are impeccably managed and...

Great place in general but you pay a lot for it which is fine. Then they charge you a resort fee for the extras. Okay I get that. But now they charge you $25 a day for beach umbrellas too. Sat there for hours and waitress never came by. For these prices I'd expect more. Think they are riding their...

Last month my wife and I stayed at the longboat key club. Being from up north the break from the cold was very much needed. We found the facility to be spectacular and will be returning next winter if not earlier. The staff was very polite and helpful. We took walks on the beach and dined at the club as...

This hotel was absolutely 5 star - the rooms were big, clean, had a great beach and pool area, the restaurants were great but the best thing was the service. We arrived late to our reservation and they told us they had upgraded our room - boy was it fabulous!! We had great balconies overlooking the ocean, 2 bedrooms, a...

We have stayed here every year up until 3 years ago. Last experience was not pleasant three years ago so we took a break. Our foundness for the beach drew us back for another shot. I called in advance to make a reservation and order a birthday cake for my wife's birthday. Followed up by phone and in person when...

Hard to know how you can make food this disappointing. Started the ball rolling with a watered-down tasteless Mojito. No dressing on the Cobb Salad. Had to ask for it twice. Blackened salmon had no flavor at all. Dialogue at the end of the meal Staff: "How was everything?" Me: "Well, thank you for asking but truthfully everything was awful."...

Stayed with my family over spring break. The property is worn, not too clean and desperately understaffed. The jacuzzi was filthy with debris floating. The pool toilets hadn't been flushed in hours. You couldn't get an uber or a taxi in under a 1/2 hour. The restaurant staff was grouchy and slow slow slow. All I can say is fix...
