We have stayed at the Lido Beach Resort on several occasions and on this occasion chose to renew our Wedding Vows. Both my wife and I travel frequently on business and talk about how many Hotels seem to have their peaks and valley's yet we have yet to see a valley at the Lido Beach Resort. Their consistent attention to... More

I stayed at LBR around Spring break. The resort was well maintained, the staff was friendly and helpful and the dining selections at the poolside were better than average. I got a great deal on this place from an online vacation discount site. T@&$el Zoo. I would return for a visit but not at full price.

I was very concerned about the negative reviews , but at the price point decided to take a chance. We had a kitchenette room and it was very well equipped. We took advantage of their summer "hot deals' and had a nice weekend getaway for $ 330 -quite a steal. The restaraunt was great as well as the poolside tiki... More

We stayed here from May 16th thru May 24th. We had a 1 bdrm suite on the 12th floor facing south.. so we had a partial gulf view. The rooms were kind of smaller than I expected but overall very comfortable. We did have a slight issue with the bathroom floor, one of the tiles was cracked & you could... More

This was our first family vacation with our 3 month old at the time. We found this place last minute and booked it based solely on the reviews. And the reviews were not lying.

We stayed at The Lido Beach Resort for a family wedding, and it was wonderful. The rooms are very basic, but large (I recommend the suites); and the place was very clean. The beach is full of powdery sand, warm water, and is easily accesable from the hotel. A great place to stay, laid back, without any arrogance.

Discovered a problem with the little refridgerator in the room and had it looked at as we were leaving for our anniversary dinner.

My husband and I stayed at the Lido Beach Resort 4/30 - 5/7. We booked this resort as a Special Getaway offer through Interval International who we are affiliated with by our timeshare ownership. Lido Beach Resort is not a timeshare, but we noticed that quite a few hotels have made some sort of a deal with Interval, so anyone... More

We were there for a wedding with over one hundred guests. Everyone involved with the beach wedding and the reception was excellent! Our experience was ruined by the resort sales personnal who asked twice to change the rooms for the groom and bride for Friday and Saturday since they were " running out of two bedroom two bath suites".
