  • To my fellow Brides dealing with planning their wedding before, during and after Covid-19....Most venues can pull off a wedding without a hitch when everything goes right, but I am telling you, you want a wedding venue and wedding team who when everything goes wrong, they don't skip a beat. That is The Resort at The Longboat Key Club. They will work tirelessly to ensure that this is your MOST special day, no matter what happens. They are flexible, understanding and will take the immense amount of stress out of planning a wedding (with or without a pandemic). Ayla is truly the most CARING, UNDERSTANDING and PATIENT human being on the entire planet and she will do absolutely anything and everything to ensure you have an unforgettable wedding experience. I am telling you, if you are deciding between other venues, there is no decision. I know of other brides who have not had even remotely the same experience I had with planning my wedding during all of this and to be able to have your MOST... Read more

  • Ayla at The Resort at Longboat Key Club was amazing!! Originally I wanted our ceremony by the water, but I absolutely didn't want sand. When I toured this venue and saw the beach, I fell in love and knew that was the perfect spot. Throughout the whole process Ayla was there to help me every step of the way. She answered all my questions and gave insights into things I didn't think of! It was wonderful to have our cake and day of coordinator included in the wedding package and to have a list of preferred vendors. The Grand Tasting was a wonderful way to help pick our menu, and all of the food was delicious! After a perfect wedding, the banquet captain sent us home with leftovers!! It was a perfect venue and with Ayla's help and guidance (along with Swanky Soiree Events) it was a perfect day!

  • Wow, I cannot recommend this venue enough! Having to postpone an April wedding seemed like a nightmare, but Ayla (the wedding coordinator) and the team at Longboat Key Club made it so simple and painless. Our wedding was this past Friday, and when I say that the day was everything I could have asked for and more I am not kidding. Ayla did everything to make sure the day went off perfect - from seamlessly organizing things to making sure everything was done to our plans, there was not one thing I would have changed. The food was SO delicious, the waitstaff was extremely professional, the beaches are beautiful and clean, and the day felt like a dream. We will never forget this amazing experience, and cannot recommend this venue enough. Call Ayla, you won't be disappointed!!

  • Ayla was so incredible to work with throughout my wedding planning process. We had our ceremony at the South Beach, cocktail hour on the lawn, and the reception at the Harbourside Ballroom. The day was absolutely perfect and our guests had a great time. Ayla made sure all of the logistics were confirmed with her staff and our vendors - it was stress-free! I can't recommend Ayla and the Resort at Longboat Key Club enough. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!

  • To be completely honest, I am speechless over how amazing Longboat was during our wedding weekend. I felt like royalty the ENTIRE weekend! Even in the planning process, Ayla and her team were so helpful and kind. I had a very specific vision for our wedding and Longboat surpassed my expectations. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Longboat. I wish I could get married there every single weekend!! I promise you, this is the place you want your wedding!!!

  • I contacted Longboat Key club at the last minute because I was going to be down there for a short vacation and wanted to look at wedding venues. Ayla quickly replied back to me and we set up a time to meet. I ended up choosing their venue and we are getting married next June! They have been very helpful with all the questions that I had (and still continue to have) and they are usually quick to respond to the emails.

  • We can not say enough good things about Ayla and the Longboat Key Club. We were originally scheduled to have our wedding March 21st 2020 but had to postpone with only 3 days’ notice due to COVID. Ayla and LBK were so helpful during this time frame and quickly helped us gather a new wedding date- one year later. We had our rehearsal dinner at the south beach lawn, our ceremony on the Harbouride lawn and our reception at the Harbourside ballroom. Our rehearsal dinner had to be moved 2 hours before the event from the beach to the lawn because of 20 mph winds and they were able to accommodate this and set up a wonderful event with short notice. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to get married in the Sarasota area!

  • The Resort at Longboat Key Club is an absolutely stunning wedding venue. From the moment my husband and I took a tour with Ayla we knew it was our place ❤️ Having a beach ceremony and outdoor reception was always my wedding dream, and LBKC offered so many great options. We got married on South Beach with our cocktail hour on the Harbourside Terrance, followed by our reception on the Harborside Lawn. We also used the mangrove area for our First Look and wedding party photos. I loved having all the variety of locations! Aside from the beautiful venue, Ayla (our resort wedding coordinator) and her team were beyond fantastic to work with. She was in constant contact with me and always responsive with the plethora of questions I bombarded her with. Having everything from the delicious food, to the cake, the day of coordinator, beverages, etc packaged together with the venue made my life a lot easier too. I truly believe my wedding would not have been as amazing as it was without the hel... Read more

  • We booked LBKC a long time before our wedding date. I knew from the first visit that this is where I wanted to get married. Unfortunately, we did run into a problem when we were informed the resort was going under construction the month of our wedding, and that most amenities would not be available to our guests. Luckily, we had Ayla Goggin to help make everything perfect regardless. Ayla was the most professional, reliable, kind, and helpful Venue coordinator we could've ever asked for. Despite the construction, Ayla worked tirelessly to make our day perfect - and it ended up being the most perfect day ever. Throughout the process, she helped recommend excellent vendors, suggested great ideas, and was extremely communicative. I recommend LBKC because the venue is stunning, the beaches are gorgeous, the service staff is super friendly, and the food was DELICIOUS. We couldn't have asked for better wedding food.. definitely get the stations. Oh - and ask for Irene to be at your wedding -... Read more

  • I don't even know where to begin with the amazingness that was our wedding! The Resort at Longboat Key Club had everything we wanted in a wedding venue. First of all, working with their wedding specialist, Ayla, was a dream! She is absolutely amazing at what she does! She is so bubbly and personable, and just exactly what you need when deciding on a wedding venue. The resort is absolutely beautiful, but Ayla made our decision to book them that much easier! She was so attentive to us, our emails, our visions, everything! This venue has a beach, romantic mangroves, a golf course, a marina, and many unique indoor and outdoor spaces to hold your ceremony or reception. We had our wedding at the marina mangroves which was just beautiful. Our cocktail hour was in the marina courtyard which almost felt like you were in Italy. Our reception was in their beautiful, large ballroom that is surrounded by windows and honestly has so much beauty to the room before it's even styled! Their options for ... Read more

  • The Resort at Longboat Key Club was such a beautiful place to have our wedding. The rooms, accommodations, beach, and ballroom were all so wonderful. Ayla is so easy to work with and made planning a wedding there so easy. She helped ensure we had an amazing time and was so great with getting us exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend the Resort at Longboat Key Club for anyone who wants to have a beautiful wedding. The food was excellent! Thank you for making our day so perfect!

  • We were married at the Harbourside on December 1st and had the best weekend at the Longboat Key Club Resort. Most of our guests stayed at the Resort for the weekend and everyone was raving about it. The beach, pool, food, rooms, and overall service were all impeccable. Many of our guests extended their stays, and others were already planning their next trip down (most guests were from the Northeast). The Groom and Groomsmen played golf at the Links course on Friday morning and the course was perfect. It’s obvious that the Resort has really invested in maintaining the course, and the staff in the clubhouse was extremely helpful and courteous getting us all set up with tee times, club rentals, etc. The Resort is perfect for adults and families alike. The rooms are fantastic. Plenty of space and very clean. When we returned to our room after the Wedding there were rose petals on the bed and champagne in the refrigerator – a very nice surprise. Resort staff – namely Ayla Goggin – ... Read more

  • Brides beware if holding your wedding at this location in the next year-year and a half! We booked this resort in November 2018 for a November 2019 wedding. We received a call at the end of March 2019 saying that our reception venue would be under construction and that it would not be able to be held in the room that contract stated. Not only that, 3 of the hotel buildings, the main building, and the pool area will be closed during the time we had our wedding booked. They let us know 7 1/2 months before our wedding. This was extremely unacceptable and was not going to work for our wedding. Most guests were booked to be staying at this resort which is not cheap, and to be told that most of the resorts amenities were going to be under construction is completely unacceptable. We also did not want to be married in a construction zone as that was not what we signed a contract for. The construction is set to start in June 2019 and go through the Winter of 2020. If you have your wedding sched... Read more

    Dear Paige, Over the years The Resort at Longboat Key Club staff has provided memorable wedding experiences. Besides having the ideal venue, the resort staff has been complimented numerous times on the excellent service provided as you will read in past reviews. While undergoing a renovation can present a challenge, the management and staff made the decision to communicate with brides and grooms whose weddings could be impacted during this timeframe. It was with the intent of transparency and integrity this communication was delivered once the renovation plans were finalized and a start date was determined. A point of clarification, as noted in this review the renovation will commence in June 2019, however the first phase which includes three buildings, the pool and lobby will be completed by early next year at the latest. The other four buildings will be completed next year, however this will not have any impact on future weddings. Upon the completion of the renovation, the resort’s venue will become even a more popular destination for brides, grooms, family and friends. Jeff Mayers, General Manager The Resort at Longboat Key Club

  • Our wedding night was amazing, but unfortunately leading up to the wedding was terrible. Everything we discussed before signing the contract was "no problem, no problem", then 2 weeks before the wedding we found out that everything was extra. I found it very sneaky. We wanted a signature drink of mojitos and they told us it was an extra $15 per person, then we asked for another and it was $12 a glass. I finally had to get the vendor to give me a list of drinks from our premium bar that we could have and mojito was first on the list. Anyway the list of little things can go on and on from before the wedding. The day of the wedding was beautiful. The staff working that night was amazing, always making sure the groom and I were happy. The food was delicious!! Just be prepared for the sneaky costs of things right before the wedding.

    Hello Siobhan, I hope all is well. Thank you once again for selecting The Resort at Longboat Key Club for your beautiful wedding held last Friday, May 17, 2019. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your special day, we greatly appreciate it. We are so glad to know that you enjoyed the evening and you were pleased with the service our staff provided you and James and all of your guests. Delighted to know you enjoyed the delicious food, you selected a great menu for all your guests to enjoy. We will certainly pass along the praises to our banquets and culinary team as they also appreciate the feedback. We do apologize that you felt you were misled regarding prices for signature cocktails, which are typically an extra charge, this was certainly not our intention. We were able to work with you on the items you had requested to be included in your menu package; those being, two signature cocktails and we were able to offer both signature cocktails complimentary for your wedding reception. Again, thank you from all of us for hosting your special wedding at The Resort at Longboat Key Club. We wish you and James a lifetime of happiness! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly. All the best, Marcy Diaz Director of Events and Catering The Resort at Longboat Key Club

  • My husband and I did a weekend trip for our 5 year wedding anniversary. The service was great the entire weekend. The food was fantastic at the Italian restaurant and Whiskey Bar. Beach area was very private just for resort guests and beautiful. Our room and pool area were just normal, nothing special, but they are about to undergo renovations in May I believe, so I’m sure it’ll be awesome when that’s complete. This didn’t bother us at all because we barely spent any time in the room and we don’t need an over the top pool area to enjoy it. Overall, it was just what we were looking for and the view from our balcony was great! Definitely recommend!
