    Perfect balance at Long Boat Key Resort

    Wonderful set up with kitchen and living -bedroom . Pool and beach are great and well staffed Our dining experience was great Operations Manager Tim Mushi is detailed and very professional - He brings thoughtful and hospitable style to the Opal resort. We dined at Latitudes. The food was very good and our restaurant host, Lake and Carlos were outstanding! both attentive and warm. You felt very welcomed! The ambiance is casual elegant and people did dress well. We also took the time to enjoy tennis and bikes at the close by yacht and tennis side of the resort. Small fees were charged. My only feedback for the beautifully located resort would be more thorough housekeeping and the open air halls to your room could be a bit more inviting. We will come back.

    Nice Recovery

    We had some issues with the fact that we had made our reservation early and room rates had dropped significantly. I spoke to two representatives and they could do nothing about the discrepancy, we had already paid for the room. I finally spoke to the on duty manager and good things began to happen. We received a room upgrade and a price adjustment. I was extremely pleased with the outcome, it was just a matter of getting to the right person who had authority. The room was great, I recommend the Lagoon View unless you are enamored with the beach. It is a short walk to the restaurant and pool, plus it’s a cost saving. The staff, all the way from Valet to housekeeping was friendly and service oriented. They have made headway in the TV reception since our last visit. We always visit for New Year’s Eve because there is a Chart House within walking distance of the property and no need to get on the road. I would rate this as one of our best visits as far service recovery and staff friendliness. They made me feel that they wanted me to return and I intend to.

    Excellent staff always going the extra mile

    The staff at longboat key really go above and beyond to make our experience exceptional. I wanted to call out Alexander for keeping our beverages flowing on the beach he really hustled and made us feel like we were the only ones on the beach even though he was running drinks for everyone. Richard for going above and beyond by driving us to a restaurant but also showing us around the key which hard to see if you only stay on resort. Lastly Tim the night manager who went out of his way to drive us to dinner when no one was around to drive us to our dinner reservation. Thank you all. Your service guarantees we will be back!

    Nice Resort on the beach with lots of amenities.

    This was a very nice resort and we enjoyed our stay here. The room was nice and very clean, we had a good view and a balcony. All the employees we encountered were super friendly and very efficient. They provide a shuttle to all their amenities. The beach was beautiful. Short drive to all the attractions. Would stay here again.

    Great experience!

    Super clean suites, nice amenities, friendly staff (Alex, the lady who serves on the beach, was great!!), BEST ROBES, beautiful sand and nice water, loved the room key/id wristbands, and lots of other things that were quite lovely. The few things I wish had been different- some stinky dead fish floating in the otherwise cute lagoon that my room faced, due to red tide season. Lights at the pool to extend opportunity to swim in the evening.
