Compared to some vacation resorts this is small but still very enjoyable. I would recommend it for families or couples. Clean facility with all the amenities. Great convenient location walkable to many shops and restaurants. We had a beachside room on the 14th floor so our view was fantastic and the room was spacious, updated and clean. It was in...

I stayed on the top floor, 14, and the room was to die for. My jaw dropped when I saw the room , balcony, kitchen, dining area, and bathroom. Just beautiful. The views were gorgeous from the balcony. I would highly recommend this resort for business, couples, or family.

Two building resort. One four story motel styled building and the 14 floor tower building. Two nice sized pools with hot tubs and a really nice tiki bar. Secured beach access too. The resort has a nice bar and cafe in the front for breakfast and lunch. The Lido Beach Grill is on the 8th floor of the tower and...

Made a last minute reservation for a overnight getaway with my friend and my dog. They let us check in early and the room was amazing. Everything you could think of and even a full size fridge. The new décor was great and the hardwood floors were nice. Everything was super clean which I really liked. The shuttle bus was...

The resort was recently renovated - BUT don't let that fool you! Rooms were beautiful but that is where it ends- housekeeping was horrendous- out of our 8 day stay housekeeping came 3 days! The rest of our stay we either had to call (and then they never showed up) or we just asked for clean towels! The hotel charges...

Please allow me to apologize for the issues you had with your stay. Our failure to provide a relaxing visit is most embarrassing. Please feel free to call me and discuss your stay.

Crowded in pool area. Very loud. Beach has eroded not much room. Friendly front desk. Rooms are updated in modern decor. Prefer Longboat area. Easy access to St. Armand's circle. Hotel has its own shuttle service.

I really liked the rooms in this resort. They were modern, well decorated, comfortable, practical and most had a view. The beach access was great. I was on a short 2 day vacation with my husband after a conference in Tampa. I am vegetarian and found the poolside restaurant overpriced and the food of poor quality. There was not much...
