Staff at the resort were wonderful and helpful. They gave us early check in as well as a room upgrade from a one bedroom to a two bedroom which was really helpful with 2 babies. Pool was big and nice - it was off season so not terribly busy. If it had been in season it would have been difficult to get loungers. We weren't able to go in the ocean which was a shame as that was one reason we booked the hotel - they are refurbishing at the moment so the water was quite dirty and there were work trucks on the beach. We could have used the loungers on the sand but it kind of defeats the purpose when you can't really go in the water. Also hadn't appreciated it's a country club as well so many people around are members rather than vacation guests. There are two sides to the resort, 3 miles apart so a shuttle will bring you back and forth - very helpful. Food was all very good at Portofino and at Barefoot. Staff was wonderful.

The hotel was amazing and the view was spectacular. There are no frills with the hotel but being so close to the water speaks volumes for me. That's the perk. The beach is beautiful. The hotel staff was very nice. We didn't use the housekeeping service but they were quick to switch out towels when we asked.
There were some ghost ants that worked their way into the room and the staff got someone to take care of it right away! Great visit. We will definitely come back.

It was my birthday gift from my husband, a nice little get-away stay for my birthday on Longboat Key, one of our favorite places since discovering it several years ago. We've lived in the Tampa Bay area (Largo) for five years now and love it but REALLY love it down here. The water is so pristine and such a gorgeous color, and the quartz sand beaches are like something out of a dream. Longboat Key itself is a very beautiful, well-kept place and a pleasure to visit every so often from Largo. I really enjoyed this weekend here at The Beach on Longboat Key. It made my birthday weekend so memorable and special!

"Nice affordable room. Couldn't ask for much more"
Room was nice and clean well stocked and cool. The bed was just ehh but everything else was great. Plenty of towels and bathroom toiletries. I would say if I could as for something a bit more it might be parking. It was a tad tight with the condos on our side of the road but we got through it no problem. Beach was cool when we went by kids loved the heated pool. For the money I felt we got everything and then some. I saw some complaints about check in we came after 5 and after calling everything was waiting for us no problem. In fact I think overall we spent about 2 min with check in and check out!! Perfect.

We had a lovely get-away at the charming Sandpiper Inn. It was quiet, relaxing, and being steps away from the beach was wonderful. Our rooms were clean and well furnished. Enjoyed having a kitchen that had all the necessary appliances. Publix was 4 miles away and had a great selection of fruits, meats, and wines. We enjoyed having a cookout on the outdoor grill!
You can walk across the road to a nice restaurant called The Lazy Lobster. The food was superb. It was nice not having daily maid service because it made us feel more at home. If we needed clean towels, etc., they were easily obtained. Enjoyed the tranquil gardens and the peacefulness of the place. Checking -in was simple;so was checking -
out. The owner was welcoming and everything we needed for the beach was available. Loved having our own beach! Will definitely return!

The condo is large and comfortable. Unfortunately my son got sick eating at the club house restaurant. We got there early and ate lunch at the restaurant. Very nice people though. Just an unfortunately incident. The place was nice and quiet until the last day when new neighbor moved in. Apparently the condo was not very constructed. You can hear the noise from the other side of the wall! Access to beach is a pain. Overall it is a fine place but not 4-5 stars!
