Been to this hotel twice now. We like to take a few days out of the hectic Disney holiday and drive to the gulf coast for a bit of beach time relaxation. This hotel is perfect for that. Right on the beach, 2 lovely warm swimming pools, plenty of sun loungers around the pools and on the beach. And a... More

Stayed here with my husband and 3 children. Room was nice, clean, and spacious. Loved the pool area, it was never crowded. Beach was gorgeous. They will set out chairs where ever you want. Shuttle to Armand Square was also a plus. Will def be back!

This is a very nice hotel. Two buildings. A four story with limited view and a main tower which has excellent gulf views. Extremely clean rooms and common areas. Sunday Brunch is phenomenal. Very friendly staff members who go above and beyond to provide excellent service. Two pools one for adults only. The best part is it's pet friendly.

We arrived at midnight after a long drive - and got a room where the cleaning had been abandoned in the midst of the process. That should not have happened. But, no problem. Within minutes, we got a clean room with the same stunning view. True, the furniture in that part of the hotel has seen better days. (We were... More

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The beachfront rooms are perfect and the swimming pool area is great for families. I was there for a family friendly conference and everyone treated us with utmost respect and met all of our needs. The food served at the conference (selected by the sponsors) for the most part was delicious and presented... More

At arrival the front desk clerk was poorly trained. She kept saying my card was declined and I laughed because I knew she made a mistake. She tried another and the same prob, well she was trying to issue refunds instead of authorizations...10 mins later it was resolved and I was checked in. Parking is stressful, but we obtained it....

Stayed in a junior suite on the 11th Floor in the tall tower. Beachfront view was fabulous! Room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Restaurants and the Tiki Bar were great! Will definitely be back!

Had a great day at Lido Beach Resort at the tiki bar. We had a great server who was from our neck of the woods in Plattsburgh NY. Dan told us about some great local spots and treated very well. No where near as pretencious as Ritz down the beach and better prices too . We will be back.

Best news first; beachfront views are absolutely amazing. The beach was perfect, not crowded at all. Scenery was 5 stars for sure; I did not want to leave. The room was nice, if I was looking for things to complain about I probably could have found them, but overall I was satisfied. Staff was friendly and the other guests seemed... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Lido Beach Resort in May. I booked 4 nights because the resort looked fabulous online and seemed to have good reviews. After booking I went through many more reviews to learn more about it before we left. There were so many terrible reviews that I got very nervous, as the hotel was my choice... More
