We had a wonderful 4 night stay and enjoyed the beach every moment we could get. Lido Beach is expansive and beautiful. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They set up the chairs and umbrellas for you, included in a $25/room/day resort fee. They have an excellent upscale restaurant, with indoor and outdoor seating. Two large pools are enclosed in a courtyard with a bar, gift shop, coin laundry. The rooms are clean, comfortable and include a nice size refrigerator for your own groceries. My only recommendation would be to replace the full size beds with queen size beds but we got by. We easily got a crib at no extra cost and usually bring our own crib sheets. When it rained, we needed a room to play cards with our visiting family and they graciously let us use the board room. And, a covered parking garage made it easy to access our 2nd floor room with heavy luggage. We have already booked our next trip here!
