My partner and I have been visiting Lido Beach for the past 5 years. We usually have less than a week so we've stayed at several hotels. Last year while walking the beach we met a couple who had been staying at the Limetree Beach Resort for years; months at a time. We resolved to check it out this year.... More

We rented a gulf front unit for 1 week. Walked the beach, swam in the pool, bbq on the grills on the patio. Everything you need is here. The friendly staff strives to insure a comfortable stay. Just enough rules to respect all. Probably the finest resort we have ever stayed at.

We've been coming to Lido for 20 years and normally stay at the Gulf Beach. The rooms we like were not available so we rented a room at the Limetree. We got unloaded and settled in and set out for the beach. A storm came up and we rushed to get our stuff back to the room. Myself and my... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Limetree Beach Resort on Lido Key from August 2-9, 2014. We made our reservation through RCI as a timeshare exchange. We had a wonderful week and highly recommend this resort. The location is on beautiful Lido Key and the resort offered everything we needed for a great vacation - perfect location... More

Been going there for twenty years. If it weren't for the fact it is right on the beach I would consider finding another vacation rental. The place needs some major updating from some professionals. It could be cleaner upon check in and the bedding could be more comfortable. If it were not for the full time staff (who are exceptional)... More

For 27 years Limetree has been our only family vacation spot. Excellent location, staff and facilities for a relaxing experience on the west coast of FL. Timeshare units provide full accommodations for families without being cost prohibited. Located right on the beach convenient to shopping & restaurants without all the noise of amusement parks. It is the best! Rick

The Limetree Resort saved my husband and me from what would have been a very bad vacation experience. I am a true TripAdvisor user/follower. I will not book a hotel reservation before I read its reviews on this site. That being said, I made a 3-night reservation at a hotel on the beach in Lido Key based on TA reviews.... More

We had a week at the resort in one of the central court apartments. The room had a magnificent sea view. The apartment itself was well equipped although furniture was slightly dated. Staff were great and facilities were good. They have a free self service & drying facility, small gym, and a nice swimming pool . You can walk directly... More

Recently returned from our first stay at Limetree Beach Resort and was very pleased with everything. The management, housekeeping and grounds staff do a wonderful job keeping this resort pristine. When we first arrived we had trouble with our key not working like it should and once we reported it to management they sent someone immediately to correct it. He... More
