Relaxing is wonderful here. Jennie Gardner is the best among the best. I had a reclusive family of four and she recommended great restaurants, activities and my family was ecstatic. She really made all the difference for our stay. The resort is directly on the beach and we had dolphin chasing us on kayaks and paddle boards. The kids and...

Nice property with a beautiful beach! Make use you do the all inclusive through the hotel directly so you can get drinks at the pool charged to your room. Same goes for the beach. You have to pay for chairs on the beach and drinks, but you must be staying there with a room key. Not through a 3rd party.

We stayed at the marina. They have a lovely restaurant on site and offer transportation to the main resort for more options. Great pool at the marina that is often quiet and not being used. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Lush grounds, impeccable service, beautiful beachfront suite, and conveniently located. Perfect spot to watch the sun set and fine, white sand beach for relaxing. Near St. Armand's for shopping and short car ride to other attractions (Mote Aquarium, Ringling Museum, Ca D'Zan, Downtown, Siesta Key Beach) for sightseeing. The restaurants on-sight are also great. A little piece of paradise.

We have been coming to long boat for 27 years. The resort is better then ever although they have added a few nickel and dime fees that are annoying such as charges for beach chairs and umbrellas. Dining room still slow but that's been the same forever. Beach is awesome and the suite we stayed in had been upgraded so...

November is the 2nd best month to be in FL after April. The Resort at Longboat Key a terrific venue. Little bit dated but the beach and the entire resort amenities, restaurants and poolside services are easily make up for it. The staff is excellent and the service is 'top notch'. I've been around 'the block' a long time.The Pina...

We spent 5 nights at the Resort. Uppon arrival with own car: friendly reception by porters. Akward lady at the front desk, however. First impression did not meet the high expectations raised by travel agent and comments from magazines. Place looks rather run down and is not classy by far. The resort consists of various buildings. Our room (Junior Suite)...

Bacchus event superb, our first one, will repeat. All property restaurants excellent. Facilities generally very good, but rooms need updating - especially bathroom, kitchen. Service people friendly and professional - especially Stacey at poolside who we found to be consistently courteous, cheerful, and exhibited a terrific work ethic.

Stayed for Veterans Day weekend, Friday through Monday. My fellow friends and I came down for a tennis weekend. Randy, the tennis pro, was great. His guidance and drills were worth every penny.
