We went to Lido Beach Resort last summer and i definitely will come back some day. The view was amazing, the sunset a most see, the high floor you get, the better accommodations, and views. I can say, this was one of my favorite vacations. The kitchenette makes it so easy when you travel with kids, that you will go...

Sarasota is just two hours distance from my home and decided to take a four day getaway to celebrate my husbands birthday. Check in was a breeze, with friendly staff and other vacationers. The room was roomy and very clean. The Lido provides two 1L waters per day, Kuerig coffee maker with a few single serve pods of coffee/tea, a...

Stayed here for a convention. Loved the location on the 4th floor overlooking the beach at sunset. We could sit outside our room most of the time and enjoy the breeze. The room itself was clean and spacious with a large shower in the bathroom. It had a kitchenette which helped us keep costs down. However, there were numerous small...

You can't be the location. It's within walking distance of St Armand's Circle. The beach is pristine and beautiful. Three cons- 1) the outdoor bar is disgusting. It stinks and doesn't look like its been cleaned in ages. 2). Service is OK. The Bartender at Lido Grill told everyone that the bar closed at 10. It felt rude. 3). Beware...

Came here for a meeting, and Lido beach is lovely. The hotel supplies beach towels and I treasured my morning swims. We also had a very pleasant conference dinner there. My one caveat is that many rooms do not have windows that open, which could be nice if you want to avoid humidity, but I go to Florida for the...

I was a regular at Lido Beach Resort and always recommended to co-workers and friends. It was the only hotel we would consider when wanting a beach getaway, but as expressed in the mailed and faxed letter to management, this resort now seems neglected. We usually would order room service and the service was acceptable, our favorite was breakfast ,...

The Lido Beach Resort was a nice Anniversary trip to the beach. The facility is right on the beach with plenty of sand and sea.
