This was our 3rd visit to the Holiday Inn, Lido Beach, Sarasota (2008,2009 and 2010) and we stayed for 9 days this time. The view from room 406 always reduces my dear wife Maggie to tears as soon as we open the doors on to the Gulf view with the added bonus of dolphins swimming less than 30 feet from the gorgeous beach.
Prior to arrival we e-mailed Kym, the General Manager for 'our' room (406) and she responded within 24 hours that it was all arranged - and it was!
I really cannot understand some of the negative comments regarding the HI Lido that were previously posted on Trip Advisor from some people and I really wonder just exactly what they expect?
Every member of staff we encountered -Management, Reception, Housekeeping, Restaurant, Poolside was friendly, helpful and could not do enough to make sure our vacation and that of our fellow vacationers was perfect.
The biggest decisions we had to make were: 1. Turn left or right on the glorious beach every morning 2. What restaurant to use in St Armands 3. Whether we should sell our home in Scotland and move their permanently!
THANKYOU to Kym and her team for yet ANOTHER FANTASTIC vacation. God willing we will see you in 2011. Harry and Maggie
