A wonderful and relaxing oceanfront property. Kitchen efficiency was very helpful in preparing coffee/snacks/breakfast. Very comfortable and clean rooms for the age of the property. It's a very well maintained property in close proximity to St ARMANDS circle and downtown Sarasota. Would definitely come back!

Ok hotel with great view and beach access

Posted Jun 17, 2015
Overpriced for what you get. Rooms could use better maintenance. Food and shop prices are insane. For a "resort" they offer very little for your money. Resort and parking fee is way too high for the quality of this location. The beach access is amazing and view is stellar.

Great place to relax and have fun

Posted Jun 15, 2015
My wife and I went here on our honeymoon and had a great time. We were in a junior suite with a beach front view and definitely enjoyed waking up to that view every morning. Everyone that worked there from the front desk to the people that handed out towels were very friendly and always willing to help us. The food at the resort was a little pricy but was very good. One of the other things that we took full advantage was the free shuttle to and from St Armands Circle. I would recommend this resort to anybody.

Our stay at lido resort

Posted Jun 7, 2015
Our room was in the old hotel, the elevator was the slowest I've ever seen, the room was old musky and just yuck feeling we never had parking in our area we had to park in the parking garage near the new hotel and then back to our room (not a pleasant experience with three sleepy children) dumpsters were taking up half the parking spots on our side of the building, there were too many of us to fit in one room so I had to get to believing they would be joined together they were not they were rooms 3 apart. would not go back did not enjoy.

Florida vacation

Posted Jun 4, 2015
Pros: Pool and beach very close. Clean. Front desk staff awesome. parking garage. nice room w/ needed amenities. computer room.
Cons: Dining - limited menu, expensive. Waited too long for service, so we left and ate in town. Pillows not comfy.
Location: Aquarium just minutes away- we didn't have time to stop tho. TONS of shopping and restaurants just minutes away. beaches, beaches, beaches.
This was my family's first FL vacation. Thank God hotel was good as we arrived over 8hrs late due to flight delay Very impressed with Hotel upon initial arrival. Front desk Staff (Tucker) were awesome. Truly made us feel welcome. Our ocean view was awesome- it was actually as good or better than the website photos- when does that ever happen?? We had a great time relaxing either pool-side or beach side. Both right next to each other. It also had 3 (not 1) different hot tubs- that were actually hot. They were doing improvement work entire time we were there. It was at times inconvenient but since we were outside almost all day, it wasn't that big an issue. I wish they would've been more communicative on this issue.

Luxurious "staycation" get away.

Posted Jun 1, 2015 on Hotels
We went for a "staycation" since we live only 30 minutes away. We were given the royal treatment and upgraded to a room with a view of the ocean. The grounds are beautiful and the room was nice. The shuttle to St. Armand's circle is quick and always available! We ate breakfast at the outside cafe and it was delicious. Overall it was a fabulous stay and we would recommend to anyone wanting to stay on the beach.

Girls weekend

Posted May 19, 2015 on Hotels
A super location but VERY EXPENSIVE. 2 ROOMS WITH KITCHENETTE 1500.00 FOR 2 NIGHTS. PARTIAL WATER VIEW. Booked 2 months in advance. we could have rented a house for that price on the beach for a week but we only needed a weekend

Very nice place to stay in Sarasota. Close to shopping and dinning. Beautiful beach with rooms that are updated nicely. Dinning at the resort is too pricing but was good food. Would stay again and recommend
