Just stayed at LBC with my kids and in-laws. It's located on the bay side of LBC with the ocean right across the street. This was nice, at times, since the week were there the Gulf was quite rough and windy and it was nice to walk back to the bay side where it was much more relaxed. The pool area is ok. You periodically get a whiff of the sealife from the bay, but the kids didnt seem to mind. LBC is a very small place, but they have a few gas and charcoal grills which we use a few nights with only little trouble. There are also a bunch of boat docks which was annoying when boats would rev their motors and spew up smoke/gas clouds that would float over the pool area. I'd just mark that up to a lack of consideration. Off the docks, many times, we saw manatees, which the kids got a big kick out of. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. The only disappointing part was out room location. Room #103 is right outside the elevator and you can hear EVERYTHING from the front bedroom. Kitchen was well stocked and everything worked perfectly. Wifi was spotty. Need to upgrade this. Especially since cellular services on Longboat Key are poor. Bottom line, we enjoyed our week at LBC. That said, since it was through a time share exchange, we've been to many places that are a lot better. I wouldn't deter anyone from giving LBC a try, but we'd likely not come back.
