Located off the coast of Sarasota, Florida, on a narrow strip of land sandwiched between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, toasty Longboat Key is often thought of as a wintertime hideaway. And snowbirds aren't the only ones who can appreciate the appeal of the area's Resort at Longboat Key Club. The gigantic property boasts a private cream-colored shore, 45 holes of golf, 20 Har-Tru tennis courts, a spa and a variety of other ways to indulge. Those who vacationed here recently were more than impressed with the friendly and efficient staff. Past guests also raved about the abundance of luxurious amenities. (But remember, two restaurants, the main pool, the lobby and select guest room buildings are undergoing renovations until early 2020.) Guest rooms and suites that are currently available to stay in are dressed in cream and blue hues and come with top-notch amenities like 42-inch flat-screen TVs, Bose Wave radios, minibars and furnished private balconies that overlook the beach, lagoon or golf courses. Keep in mind, a $24 to $36 daily resort fee, which covers additional conveniences like in-room Wi-Fi access, area shuttle service and self-parking, applies. The exact fee varies depending on the accommodation chosen.

Critic Reviews



Situated along a wide strip of scenic beach, this sprawling resort offers extensive recreational amenities. Each guest unit has a private balcony with a view of the beach or surrounding countryside.



This spectacularly landscaped property is one of the best places to play golf in the state, and among the top tennis resorts in the country. There is debate about what attracts more guests: the 45 holes of challenging golf or the 291-slip marina.

Condé Nast Traveler


Slapped on a slab of white sand along Florida's Gulf Coast, the tall towers of The Resort at Long Boat Key Club send up a signal for a good time. With a USTA award-winning tennis facility, two tricky golf courses, and just a strip of lush Floridian foliage separating the crystalline pool from the warm ocean waters, it's a wonder this place isn’t perpetually packed to the gills.
