My partner & I had wanted to go to Lido as he had been when he was younger & loved it, we had wanted this hotel from the start but it was just too expensive but we waited for a while, an amazing deal came up & we had to have it.
On arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to a better room, in the main building, which was much nicer than our original room & no extra cost.
We had a fantastic week there, very helpful reception staff - there was nothing they wouldn't help us with.
Make sure you get a sun lounger by the pool early otherwise you won't get one all day. The pool was slightly cold for me so I didn't go in much. Although, the days we spent by the pool were lovely & we often had a complimentary drink bought over in the afternoon.
The breakfast is very good, a lot of selection of hot & cold food, there was also a pancake station on a couple of days.
We had some very nice meals, apart from one lunch when we had to eat in the indoor restaurant, rather than the more relaxed outdoor bar, because of the weather and the main member of restaurant staff was rude & made us feel very awkward because we wanted to order off the bar menu. While we were eating he took off his jacket & just left us in the restaurant alone. He seemed to do everything - breakfast, lunch & dinner every day but every encounter with him was fairly unpleasant.
The grounds are really beautiful & there's a lot to look at without even going off-site, there's even a little church which is very pretty.
It's in a very good location, right over the road from the beach & there is a supermarket around the corner.
All in all, we had a brilliant time at Villa Ariston, would definitely go back!
