Described as "one of the best places to play golf in the state" by Fodor's, the 410-acre Resort at Long Boat Key Club is an upscale beach venue on the shores of Sarasota Bay, with two waterside golf courses and AAA 4-Diamond rating.

The rest of the resort is just as impressive, encompassing a private beach, a 291-slip marina and 20 top-class tennis courts. (It was named America's top tennis resort spot in 2012 by Tennis magazine.)

The hotel is fairly secluded -- Longboat Key is one of the few barrier islands in the Sarasota area without direct mainland access -- but six restaurants ensure plenty of dining variety. For views over the Gulf of Mexico, dine at the romantic Sands Pointe, described by Frommer's as "an informal but elegant supper club." There’s also live evening entertainment in the lounge (Wednesday-Saturday).

The resort operates a kid's club held Tuesday-Saturday, giving adults free time to book a treatment at the resort's large spa or work out in the fitness center. A multitude of water sports are also available, including kayaking to paddle-boarding.

Spacious rooms are finished with dark-wood furniture, mini kitchens and private balconies that face the beach, lagoon or golf course. Suites are considerably larger than standard rooms, plus full kitchens and fold-out sofas make them handy for families.

There's a $24-$36 resort fee (per room, per night, depending on season), which includes Wi-Fi, access to the tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, use of the beach cabanas, umbrellas, loungers and towels, and access to the spa.

From the press:
  • "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" -- Fodor’s
  • "This award-winning, green-certified destination resort pampers the country club set with upscale restaurants and a variety of world-class recreational facilities" -- Frommer’s
  • "Stunning deluxe hotel rooms, all with balconies and oodles of services"-- Lonely Planet

Other Comments: Staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. Note: check in desk did not have the extras (free full breakfast, $5 resort c edit daily, etc.) on our reservation so be sure to bring your TravelZoo printout with you...they immediately honored them.

Enjoyed Most: Beach!!!
Other Comments: Suite was large with amazing views of the gulf. A little confusion upon checkin/checkout. Resort was not familiar with the travelzoo deal, which was a bit awkward and embarrassing. I had to ask for the extras and send my travelzoo email confirmation twice to staff, but was able to get everything. We had a great time and would do it again!
