From the moment that we pulled up at the resort until the minute that we checked out, the staff could not have been more attentive to our needs. The bell man was there to open the car doors and greet us and then stayed with us until all of our luggage (and it seemed like worldly possessions) were in our suite. Everything was perfect for our one week stay. The resort was having maintenance done on some of the buildings and the hot tub was also being worked on but we go there for the beach which is pristine so it did not affect us or our time for relaxation. Of the golf courses, the three located at Harbourside were definately in better condition (Islandside greens need work).

All-in-all it was a wonderful vacation----we will be back again and again!

We spent the July 4th weekend at the resort. It was wonderful! Here is a summary of our likes and dislikes:

Likes:
- super comfortable bed
- good size room
- good size restroom - with plenty of counter space
- good food at the lobby restaurant
- nice evening entertainment at the lobby restaurant
- nice welcoming drinks provided at check-in - nice touch!
- pleasant staff - from valet attendants to front desk
- short walk from beach (if staying at the lagoon - maybe 5 minutes)
- nice views
- fairly quiet
- plenty of tennis courts that are not busy
- nice beach area - tons of sand dollars when we went!
- cabanas
- nice hotel landscaping/ grounds - great for walks!

Dislikes:
- waiters at the restaurant in the hotel
- wayfinding around the resort - need better signage
- pool was too busy - and always full of kids
- St. Armands Circle is a little too far to walk to
- kitchen counters in the room were covered with bread crumbs when we arrived
- shower head - low flow - which makes it challenging to rinse shampoo from hair

Overall, great stay!

We had a great stay at the Longboat; we travelled there for a work convention and it was perfect. The room had a kitchen which was perfect as I need to eat breakfast and don't always want to go out for food. We had a great balcony which was good for early morning sun tanning. It was right beside the pool, which is good if you have kids.
We golfed, took some of the aerobic classes, spa and ate within the resort, all of which were great. I would be more than happy to stay here again if I ever go back to Sarasota.
Thanks Longboat!!!

The Longboat Key Club & Resort, nestled on the Gulf of Mexico, is to a vacation what the champagne region of France is to making wine - the leader of the pack. A short 15 minute drive from downtown Sarasota, a very busy cultural center, not only offers a true point of relaxation but it defines the word "service". You don't feel like a guest, you feel like you're home. Everyone from the concierge to the bellmen not only do their jobs, but go above and beyond in making sure that everyone feels pampered. The food in the restaurant is world-class quality and those beautiful white beaches! This is not only one of the best resorts in Florida, it is equal to many of those in which I have stayed around the world.

We went to this resort for a wedding and at first were wowed by the service. We were met at the car by two attendants who opened our doors for us and escorted us inside for check-in. Our bell-hop carried our luggage up to our room and showed us around the room to get familiar with the amenities. He was probably the best staff we encountered over our 2 night stay.

The room was beautiful. It was just a regular "guest room" but it still had a kitchen, washer/dryer, dish washer, living room area, flat screen television, and a nice-sized bathroom. I cannot complain a bit about the room-- it was perfectly decorated and beautiful.

Because it is a wedding destination, trying to sleep with the noise of partying guests was difficult... but we had a wedding the next day, so we waited until around midnight to call the main desk. The person over the phone was curt and unfriendly. The noise did stop, however.

Also, we called room service the day of the wedding and were told the food would arrive in 25 minutes. 25 minutes came and went and we eventually had to start getting ready for the wedding.... just as we were about to walk out the door (an hour later) our food arrived.

The quality of the food does not equal the price. $35 for a burger and a salad?

The beach area is nice. However, the cabana attendants appear more interested in eachother and talking to eachother than attending to the guests. I saw one woman have to flag down a waitress and ask her if she could order a drink.

The pool is also very nice and has a beautiful lounge area.

The wedding reception itself was done nicely and the staff was courteous, diligent, and professional. The hall was gorgeous and it was decorated beautifully. The center-pieces were to die for!

Overall, the grounds and the room were beautiful but the customer service was not up to par.
