Stayed here recently for a getaway weekend. Pleased to see two beds and a separate room with a futon. That really helped with four of us all staying together. Loved having a separate room where the door can be closed on the bedroom. Nice updated floor tile, simple bathroom and a room that overlooked the pool. The sunset cannot be... More

Our 10th family vacation at Coquina. Staff is friendly. Location is right on the beach and the hotel is clean and well maintained. Only problem we encountered was on Saturday, when one hotel guest commandeered one of the two shelters on the beach and had a graduation party for someone who was not a guest. There were at least 20... More

I would like to apologize for your experience on that particular day. I have implemented new policies to ensure that this will not happen again at Coquina and we are now towing vehicles that do not have the necessary parking permit. The weekend you are referencing, we were totally overrun by "guests" of one room and I accept total responsibility... More

First I want to say how incredibly nice everyone was. We brought our dog and there was a extra fee but it was worth it cause it's hard to find pet friendly in that area. Rooms are clean and perfectly suitable. Love how they are right on the beautiful beach.

The facility is older, but well maintained overall. The pool is kept clean and the grounds are lovely. We had a second floor room with a great view of the pool, courtyard and beach. The balcony is very large, and although the timbers are weathered, they were secure. The kitchen was well equipped, all appliances worked. The housekeeping staff was... More

We stayed in this resort about 9 years ago and it was very nice, relaxing and family friendly. Well this was the weekend before classes start and we decided to have a small getaway with some friends from out of town. There were other guests next to our room that started drinking around 8am, making a lot of noise and... More

First, I would like to apologize for the atmosphere at the hotel during the weekend you were staying. We had some very unruly guests who did in fact bring way too many "guests" to our property who ruined yours and other paying guests visits. I have since implemented a policy to identify who is a paying guest of Coquina, and... More

I traveled with my father, step mother, and two brothers this past weekend and I definitely enjoyed our stay. Like many have mentioned, it is not the Ritz and could use some updates but we had a decent room that opened up right on the beach which was wonderful. The staff was pretty friendly as well. The room itself was... More

This was our first time on Lido Key. Chose this for the location. As many have noted it is an old style Florida hotel,the kind our grandparents would have stayed in. Our room was neat and clean. Rather large. Close to the beach. As noted could use some updates but that's to be expected in a property this old. The... More

My review is probably consistent with many of the others. Based on reading the reviews here - my expectations were set when I checked in to the hotel - and there were no horrible surprises. The hotel has a great location - right on the beach and a 10 minute walk to St. Armonds Circle. The rooms were spacious and... More
