                                                              I loved the relaxing atmospher. I liked that there was an adult pool area for over 18 the staff was great. I loved the tiki bar.

                                                              I would have liked the tiki bar to be open later then 8pm. The prices for food was a little high.

                                                              What I liked about the hotel was the location. The food was good specially the breakfast, like Cinnamon French Toast. Also, the staff was very sociable and helpful.

                                                              The room was too small for a family of four. I booked the two doble bed with Kitchennette room and was located on the side of the main building with a parking lot view. The family pool was too small and Crowded.

                                                              Just a great place not too large, very nice and not far from home.

                                                              The hotel is on the beach, which is the main reason why I selected it. Staff is the highest value of the hotel. I'm travelling very very often for various reasons so I can easily compare and the Lido Beach resort is a good value for money place.

                                                              When I arrived, some work in progress outside the hotel obliged us not to use the bathroom between 9 and 12 P.M. and also the restaurants at the hotel got closed. Not the best mainly if it is the same day of your arrival. The beach is crowded but really well served. During the week end there has been a lot of nightlife at the hotel disturbing a bit. One day we got a thurderstorm and the outside parking lot was full of water and we had to change our shoes to reach and use our car. For the overall architectural standpoint, the garage, very useful, is awful but in the back. Our room was among the few without a balcony, which is a pity after having spent the whole day on the beach mainly if you want to dry your beach wear. Overall, it's in any case a place which I'll visit again, for sure.

                                                              This is our third time staying at Lido Beach Resort and will stay again. They upgraded our room to a oceanside room without asking and for no extra charge. The hotel staff, the facilities and beach are wonderful. The resort is very clean and the staff is extremely friendly. The only negative comment I have is the cost, it is a pricey place to stay.

                                                              Very large room with kitchenette was perfect beach holiday set up. Had breakfast in my room each day helped to save on costs and made sure I was on the beach by 9am each day enjoying the sunshine and the sounds of the crashing waves. Beautiful walks along the beach lead to a nature reserve area and bird life was terrific. Also a fabulous shopping and restaurant area is a short walk away making sure you can enjoy a drink or two without having to worry about driving.

                                                              Hotel seems very popular for weddings and ceremonies on the fantastic beach fronting the hotel. On checking in we were fortunate they had an option available to upgrade to an ocean view room with balcony and kitchen and this room was well worth the reasonable cost of upgrade and made the stay more memorable. The pool bar is great but just wish ot could stay open later than 8pm.

                                                              The pool bar is great but just wish ot could stay open later than 8pm. Not sure if this closing time is all year round but believe it is a Sarasota State requirement?

                                                              The room was old but clean,the bed was very comfortable,

                                                              The location: right at the beach, and closeby to the St Armands Circle shopping and dining area. The willingness and friendlyness of the staff to help out, offer additional services.
