Our group has rented out the entirety of Beau Lido suites for at least one week every year for the past nineteen years. The rooms are clean, the price is right, the location is great and the staff is friendly. The rooms have very basic furnishings and the beds and linens are adequate. Doors, some windows and patio furniture have been replaced, and several rooms had kitchen updates just a few years ago. There are different types of rooms to accommodate for various needs. Many rooms are definitely showing their age and they may want to think about more cosmetic touch-ups in the near future. For example there are some broken tiles in the bathroom of room 7. The kitchenettes are stocked with some pots, pans and utensils to prepare meals. We did have an unfortunate occurrence with the air conditioning ceasing to function in three of our rooms (1,2 and 3) after hours, which created a bit of a headache. Carrie was prompt in addressing the problem and the issue was resolved as soon as possible the next morning. She is fantastic and has always taken care of us over the years. Other than this hiccup, the A/C units make the rooms very comfortable in the Florida heat. The set-up of the property gives a feeling of community to the suites. Since there is quite a bit of open space we’ve always wondered if the owners have considered putting in a pool. Overall, if you are looking for a basic, clean, affordable room, within close proximity to beach and shopping, this is a good place to be.
