Longboat Bay Club is small (15) unit Timeshare Resort located on the Bay side of Longboat Key. Big units, under the building parking, boat slips, short walk to beach, clean and well maintained. Friendly service. Picked the week of May 7-14, 2016 for our annual stay. Perfect weather 80-85 low humidity. Love the place for it's quiet, friendly uncrowded atmosphere!...

Our first but not last trip to Longboat Key and staying at Longboat Bay Club. The condo is dated but clean. Our unit was very spacious. The sofa has seen better days in fact it should be replaced. The pool area and bathrooms are very clean but my husband really got bitten by bugs when he used the outside grill....

We really enjoyed our stay at Longboat Bay Club. Our unit was #202 and we had a perfect view of the Bay out back. We could see a glimpse of the ocean out front. We loved seeing the manatees and we enjoyed the pool and hot tub very much. The pool water temperature is perfect! Our condo was HUGE! More...

Beware of room 105. AC unit soaked rug. Management put down three pool towels. Took 24 hours for AC service to arrive. Five hours after repair rug was wet again. Then a column of ants entered the room. When the ants checked in, we checked out losing three days of vacation.

This was our first visit to longboat key. You'd be hard pressed to find something that you really didnt like about these quaint timeshare accomodations.(15 units total) Your unit will face the bay and a short walk across the street to the ocean. This place is nestled among 500k condos and 5 million dollar homes. What a beautiful area! The...

We visit Florida every summer. We got this property through a timeshare trade. It has great amenities for a small property. They have pool towels, bikes, beach chairs, games, videos, books, etc. The room was a great size with a well-stocked kitchen. Our room's view was wonderful. We overlooked the pool and bay area. We could watch the manatees come...
