I went to Venice last year for the first time and loved it but after a recent episode of illness, I wanted a relaxing holiday. Staying on the Lido was therefore the ideal option and also so much cheaper than staying in Venice in mid-August.
The hotel was easy to find and it's ideally located a few minutes' walk from the beach. There are also plenty of restaurants, shops and a supermarket very close by.
My room was quite basic but clean, although the bathroom was much more modern than the bedroom itself. The staff were helpful and the free wifi was great. The breakfast was just a continental buffet and there was only a very limited choice. I think this might have been because the hotel is actually quite small.
One of the reasons that I chose this hotel was that the website said the hotel had access to the private beaches on the Lido. I didn't experience this at all. However, the public beach was perfectly fine and I spent a good few ideas there!
If you are staying in Venice for the first time, I would recommend staying in Venice itself. If you want to spend more time on the beach than sightseeing, stay on the Lido.More
