We were in Sarasota for an amazing event - the Swim without Limits, a 7 mile ocean swim our friend competed in and enjoyed our stay at the Lido Beach. Our room was comfortable - I very much liked the wood laminate floor - nice change from carpet and very clean! The service everywhere was warm and friendly, especially the...

7 Mile Swim Around Lido Key had a great host hotel with Lido Beach Resortl! Very accommodating to the swimmers from all over the U.S. My children played happily while my husband and I had a chance to relax. The customer service was outstanding and even with a clitch in housekeeping, they took care of it professionally. Shuttle service was...

My husband and I were supposed to be in the Bahamas for our anniversary, the night before our trip we realized my husband's passport had expired a few months prior. The airline and TSA said it would be okay with a birth certificate...drove to Orlando airport from Jacksonville to be told it was NOT okay! So, in the airport, we...

This resort truly has it all. The rooms are new and modern. It seems like whoever designed them considered what travelers would need down to extra power outlets (much appreciated). We booked a "deluxe room, 2 beds with kitchenette" and ended up in the smaller building, 3rd floor, adjacent to the large tower. We had a small side view of...

We stayed in a two bedroom suite that had two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living area.We were told the rooms were newly renovated and we enjoyed the decor and overall comfort of the room. It was perfect for our family! The maid service was good if you could get them to come. I called the front desk to have...

Stayed in studio with 'half' kitchen. Small rooms. Look at pictures to see if suitable for you. Beach narrow and pool area felt crowded. Stayed in newly renovated rooms which were nicely updated. Parking is added on automatically but you can ask for it to be deleted. Plenty of parking overnight on side streets.

The hotel staff were very helpful, the location was great as was our spacious room. We really enjoyed the pool, access to the beach and walking distance to Armand's circle to shop and eat. This hotel has a lot of amenities including a tiki bar with full service and close to the beach and the pools.

Stayed in March 2017 for 7 nights. Very disappointed on arrival to get room 106 in the smaller of the two accommodation buildings. This room felt very unused and almost like one of the temporary rooms that hotels offer to get showered and changed on your final day if leaving on a late flight !! There was no safety deposit...

This is our first time at Lido Beach. Nice, spacious, clean rooms. Beautiful facilities BUT needs plenty of room to improve service at the restaurant ( this is our 4th day with more than 30 min to get breakfast served) Waiters seem overwhelmed due to understaffing issues. At the beach limited help to get chairs. We still have three more...
