The Limetree Beach resort is a gem amongst all possible lodgings on Lido Key, FL. If you are looking for a relaxed family friendly experience or a solo vacation, this is the place for you. This resort is not a fussy hotel situation. You move into an "apartment" and mange it all week long. You may cook if you wish... More

The beach is gorgeous, the pool and hot tub are great. My family has been going to Limetree for 30 years. I hadn't been in the last 19 years though and I fell in love all over again. Staff is amazing and the room/condo was very clean and comfy.

Everything is nice. The pool is clean, the beach is nice, sunsets are great blah blah blah. We have 3 weeks in a gulf facing 1 bed unit. We are a family of four and the sleeping accommodations are awful. Supposedly, the pull out couch's mattress was replaced this year but I find that hard to believe considering the springs... More

Our family has been going to Limetree for a number of years. We have found it to be a terrific place on the beach with decent units. The beachfront units are the best but obviously the most expensive. The staff are friendly and accommodating. We heard that the management has changed and things are not up to snuff as in... More

A lovely, clean, friendly vacation spot. We have been coming to Limetree for 16 years. Year after year it just gets better! The pool is perfect. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, including the sunsets. Very family friendly. I plan to continue using Limetree as my Florida destination during March and April in the years to come.

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
