Family weekend at the beach

Posted 10-Jul-2017
The beach is very nice and clean, however we paid to stay at a quiet and safe place and this property doesn't have a sequrity or any regulations to avoid people not staying at the property to come in. On Saturday there were so many people with about 10 kids that got into the property through a Public entrance that is next to it. The guy that was with them looks like a terrorist. He started creating problems with all the guest and with the lady that was working there. We didn't feel safe and went back to our room. They messed up our entire Saturday at the beach, and didn't leave until about 7 pm. They were using property chairs, pool, boards and even towels at the end. The property should either have a security on site. We didn't feel safe there and kind of wasted our money paying to stay there.

Thank you for your submission. We are sorry to hear your experience was disrupted by other guests and are looking in to this. Our small condo complex does not provide security.

beautiful views from room

Posted 4-Jul-2017
Came in July Water was beautiful and warm. Amazing sunsets on beautiful beach by hotel. Clean, comfortable and close to all offsite activities. You need a car or will need uber. Uber over lica taxis - faster and cheaper.

True Paradise

Posted 7-May-2017
Pros: I loved the master bed, the privacy, quiet atmosphere, maid service, location, absolutely everything.
Cons: Not one single thing can be done to improve this condo, The Beach is truly an amazing experience and vacation.
Location: Other than the gorgeous beach and ocean to swim in there is St. Armonds Circle for shopping and eating as well as the Mote Aquarium.
This condo (101) was absolutely amazing. Pictures do not do it justice, I would come back in a heart beat. I was truly sad to leave. The beach is so quiet, romantic, gorgeous sunsets and sunrises, etc. etc. The maid service is impeccable. I must say, we lost our 14 year old son and unfortunately he had special needs, therefore, we were unable to take a family vacation out of Gouverneur, NY. We decided to take our 16 daughter to The Beach for our first ever family vacation and it was everything I could ever imagine it could be. I give a sincere thank you to The Beach, my true paradise vacation.

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

Posted 23-Mar-2017 on Hotels
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.

Beautiful sunsets

Posted 27-Feb-2017
Pros: The location to the beach and the pool from the hotel. Also the sunsets
We were on vacation celebrating our anniversary. The staff were friendly from the minute we arrived until we checked out. Our room was perfect for two people and the sunsets from our balcony were amazing. The beach and the pool were just steps away from our room.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted 23-Jan-2017
Pros: peacefulness
Cons: Our unit was very nice, except the kitchen paint job. Chairs had marked the walls. It needed to repainted. And a kitchen chair needed to be replaced.
Location: For relaxation it was great. The beach was clean, and not crowded. Their was nearby shopping, a car museum, and an aquarium we enjoyed.
This hotel is very close to the beach. I could get up in the morning and be on the beach in just a few seconds. The beach was clean. The pool was clean. The mattress and pillows were clean and comfortable. The kitchen was great with nice appliances, quality dishes and cookware. But the peacefulness was so nice. It was quiet, and clean. Yet, it is a short drive to a larger city for shopping and entertainment.

pictures are always what they appear

Posted 18-Nov-2016 on Hotels
Room was not what it looked like on the web; was really small compared. Bed was dropdown from a closet and there was no space in the room.....
