Calm and private beach
Really nice stay. Very clean and cozy. Relaxing is key and so calm at this hotel. Nice area Anna maria and siesta key really close. Beautiful area very friendly staff. Fun stuff like boogie boards and umbrellas at pool for use. Updated hotel. Loved it

A great place to stay.
A great place to stay. And beach chairs and umbrella is available for guests. The beach was gorgeous and the grounds were immaculate. The rooms were very modern and clean, great beds and furniture in a fully stocked kitchen. If we come back to longboat key we're definitely staying here again.

Know what you're buying Not as described
Hotel listed 2 beds. Seems like 2 br right? Not a chance. 2 beds (sofa & Murphy) both in 1 room, neither of which you can use at the same time. Not a suite as indicated but 1 room with a bath. Broken furniture in the room. Provided 1 total bar of small guest soap to use in both the shower and the bath sink for the entire week I was there. Blank stare when I indicated it wasn't a two BR as described. Office replies they'll try to be more accurate next time doesn't help at all when you show up with a girlfriend (not your lover) to what you think is a 2 br and can't use both beds. At. All. Oh, and you paid $2k for the week. Thanks The Beach. Overpriced for what else is available on LongBoat Key. Lot's of better options that actually are what they say and have full 2 br, 2 bath, and more than one bar of soap.

Convenient and clean hotel
We did not realize that our room would be very small and the only unit in the resort that was not Gulf front. WiFi went off during the night and was not restored until after we left. Luckily the receptionist could check us in with our airline, but the delay put us well down the line for boarding an early flight the next day. Staff was excellent, very friendly, and helpful when on scene. We would only return if we could have a second floor gulfside unit.
