Lido Beach is a lovely resort. Newly refurbished with a kitchenette was a plus. How wonderful to walk past the beautiful two pools only to be on Lido Beach. Phenonmenal sunsets. The shuttle to St Armand's Circle was a great service to offer. Shout out to Gary our driver, who also advised us about the town. Would return.

We had been wanting to stay in this facility since finding photos of it on line. What a miserable experience! And by the way, if you check my years of reviews, I rarely give such a poor rating. When we got to the hotel, we found that there were no bellhops and we had to take our luggage upstairs. Strange,...

Please allow me to apologize for the issues you experienced with both Housekeeping and construction. We promise to work towards correcting our housekeeping shortfall and are nearing completion of the renovation to our Main building that will start occupying guests starting Wednesday 23 November. We hope you will allow us an opportunity to redeem ourselves with a subsequent visit.

We had a wonderful visit. The staff could not have been nicer. The 1 bedroom suite was well appointed. The bed was SO comfortable! The shower, excellent. The only thing I wished they had provided was a robe! A big, fluffy, warm robe. I'd really enjoy a "stay-cation" .

I was here for Sunday brunch with two friends. Ask for a window seat. The buffet choices are excellent. You can stay healthy with seafood and salads or ramp it up with all the usual pancakes, bacon, hash browns, blueberry syrup, sides of beef served with horseradish. And the desserts are really good too and include cookies, muffins, key lime...

I recently attended the Florida Conference for Exceptional Children at the Lido Beach Resort. It was a very nice venue for a small conference. The location is perfect for those who traveled, as they are right on one of our beautiful beaches. It is also near St. Armand's Circle for great shopping and dining.

Stopped in for Sunday brunch based on other reviews/recommendations. 8th floor with very limited views of the gulf (*) and nice views east to downtown Sarasota. Service was excellent, the buffet offerings were abundant: salads, breads, fresh fruit, steamship round, omelets, more. The cold steamed shrimp was excellent, they were huge pieces. They weren't cleaned (deveined) which meant only one...
