The room was clean and spacious with new furniture. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and the frig was large. The view from the deck was...

The bed was SO comfortable, which was perfect for my arthritis, bursitis, etc. Only complaint is the sliding door going on the balcony was most difficult to open & close. Another problem was...

Thank you for staying with us and your kind comments regarding the room, bed and 8th floor restaurant, Lido Beach Grille. We'll check into the balcony and apologize for the renovation but I assure you it is to provide you with future accommodations that are synonymous with Lido Beach Resort and our Opal collection properties.

Lido Key and adjoining St. Armands are one of our favorite places to visit in Florida. We always enjoy or stays in the area. Most of the staff is great here. There is one guy at the front desk that was a bit difficult with us the past two stays. Otherwise, on the positive... Nicely renovated rooms and common areas...

The grounds were under construction, but still great. Our suite was amazing. Gulf view from our bedroom and beach view from the balcony. Very modern decor, but simple and chic. The staff were all great. Excellent beach location, and if you just want to stay in the area around St Armand's circle you never have to even get in your...

We arrived to check in at 4 and our room was ready. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. We stayed on the 12th floor and our view of the ocean was absolutely breathtaking. We took the shuttle to dinner at St. Armands and our driver Gary was great. When we got back from dinner we went to the...

Here's a rundown of good and bad. Beautiful beach and cool location close to Armand's circle which is very neat. Amazing sunsets and room service staff was friendly. Lots of issues though. Extremely slow elevators, multiple places that smelled strange throughout hotel, lots of construction, we had a roof leak that set off our alarm in our room. Gym was...

I usually stay at the Resort at longboat key club, but they were nice enough to warn me that the beach would be closed for repair so I booked the Lido beach resort.
