    Mixed Experience

    Our experience with the front desk was mixed at best. We called ahead about early check-in but were told we would have to wait until we were at the property. We arrived 2.5 hours before our scheduled check-in time at 4pm, but had to wait until 5pm to get into our room, 3.5 hours after arrival. On our last day, we requested late checkout but they only agreed to 12:30pm (versus 11am), even though they were late with our room by an hour. No comps to offset. Once we got to the room, there was trash on the balcony. We could tell that they had rushed thru the cleaning. They must have worked hard on getting early check-ins instead of us. Our interactions with the rest of the staff was very positive. The bar, restaurant, beach staff were friendly and helpful. This property has two buildings, older & newer. Our room was in the older building and it did not feel like a 4-star room based on my travels to other resorts and major cities. It did have a GREAT view of the ocean and side view of the pool. Opt for the newer building. This property is in the flight path of the SRQ airport so be prepared to have planes taking off several times per day. There was also construction on adjacent property with diesel smell and noise from the heavy equipment. Otherwise, the beach and water were perfect (except for ride-tide no fault of resort). It is rated a 4-star property and most of the staff did try hard to make it such, but we would not choose to return to this property.

    The hotel location is great but the service was disappointing. The room had sand and cereal on the floor when we got there. They don’t have enough umbrellas by the pool so get there early!! Definitely not a 4 star hotel

    Great location, on quiet beach. 4 pm check in is too late in the day. Staff were very helpful and considerate, generous with water in the room and replenishment of towels and supplies.

    Nice resort, too many kids for us

    The room and resort in general were nice. Due to Covid, the bar and dining room was closed, I wasn’t aware of this before we arrived. The resort was full of children, perhaps more children than adults. This didn’t appear to be a resort tailored to children, a family changing poopy diapers right next to us, while lounging by the pool, others yelling at their children, instead of getting up to talk or discipline them... wasn’t what we were looking for...

    Amazing boutique style resort! Beautiful property! Actually one of the only chic-modern style in the area. Great staff, clean hotel, awesome pool and beach area. Rooms are great as well. Can’t wait to go back again!

    A great resort on the north end of Longboat Key. Modern and attractive but not in a super crowded area. Great restaurants nearby. The resort made our 2 day get away feel like more. Highly recommend for staff and rates.

    I would not recommend staying at the Zota Beach Resort. I have been to Longboat Key for many years and the experience at this location does not suit the natural beauty of the beach. One of the most present problems were with the time consuming of something as simple as making a reservation. I ended up using Expedia because of at least an hour waiting to reserve directly with the hotel. The second was upon arrival: there was not enough staff to load up cars that were leaving and unload cars that were arriving, even if you wanted to unload yourself. The third was the more than rude person at the desk who took our reservation, but, I am sure she was having a bad day too at there. The last big problem was misinformation between staff members. I will never go back to this location in Longboat Key again!

    I like Zota and have been going there since it opened. The property is beginning to show some wear and tear they need to get it back to clean and fresh. Also the front desk folks need to be nicer. Valet guys were great, pool and beach staff wonderful!
