Loved our one night stay at Lido Beach Resort last weekend. Got an early check-in and upgrade to the 10th floor which had an absolutely beautiful view and stayed in a 1 bedroom premium suite so gorgeous. Staff was very friendly even helped with printing our boarding pass. The Tiki bar was fun and happy drinks great thanks to Woody....

Another great stay at this resort! We have stayed here several times and are never disappointed. We both grew up in the area and love to visit St Armand's, so we like to stay somewhere in close proximity to the circle. This resort is always clean, efficient, and friendly. We even had a smoke detector go off and within minutes...

Avoid room 141, ground level, facing the pool, beach side (or rooms near it). The mechanism for the elevator is located across the passage way. Whenever the elevator rises, the machinery makes an extremely loud and penetrating buzzing sound, like an alarm warning. We brought it to management's attention immediately and were told that engineering would check on it. If...

Excellent location, 15 minute walk to St. Armand's Circle with lots of shops and restaurants. Lots of nice amenities at the Lido Beach Resort i.e. Beach, pool, restaurants, bar. I highly recommend the Lido Beach Resort if you plan to visit anywhere near Sarasota.

This hotel is fine. There are some nice features (tiki bar restaurant, two pools including one being adult only) nice little beach area, sunset views. Room was clean and modern. But also some negatives -rooms are very noisy, especially rooms on ground floor main walk ways, housekeeping service wasn't top notch (no toiletries ( i.e. Soap, shampoos) when we arrived....

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the resort, tiki bar, restaurant and rooms. We will share with housekeeping our shortfall with providing the proper amount of amenities and room service being delivered in a timely fashion.

Our room was an oceanfront 10th floor so what's not to like? A beautiful beach, convenient to St. Armands' with the shuttle service, and nice on property amenities/bars and restaurants. Great relaxing facility, attentive staff - a first class experience in a first class hotel.

The overall room was absolutely gorgeous. Clean, comfortable, the beds were fantastic and everything was fresh and modern. However, a couple of hours after check in, I ran in to two separate circumstances where housekeeping entered my room without knocking and un-announced. The first time I let it go, while not thrilled. The second time was when I had just...

We booked months ahead but when we arrived on Sunday, February 26 they gave us a room overlooking a roof which was for handicapped guests. The shower was tiny and hard to use.
