The rooms are quite dated, but in a decent state of repair. As one would expect, it was loud outside around the pool at midnight, but security quickly intervened and sent the bellowers on their way. Service at the beach was good, and it was a great day for sun and sand. The highlight of the stay was the full service restaurant. The wait staff was professional, and all of the food was excellent. Of course, the lobby staff was typical Helmsley, top shelf. Would I stay again....yes, and very soon, probably spend the entire week this time. Lido Beach is a great area.
