Nice place, nice people, poor value.

I gave Lido Bech Resort this rating based mainly on value. Yes, they didn't make up our room one day and the WiFi acted strangely at times (had to turn it off and use my cellular service). But the major issue is value. The total of taxes on the room was 12%. Then there were the nickel and dime fees like parking ($15/day), daily beach fee ($25), umbrella rental ($15/day). They frowned on bringing coolers into the pool area because it is considered a restaurant and bar (translation- buy our food and drink: we cheated and brought in a cooler). Food and drink prices were high, but typical of a resort type hotel. Our 2 day hotel bill was around $900 (no dinners included). As a couple, we are probably spoiled by staying at Caribbean all-inclusive resorts for about the same daily cost and more amenities.
