Great location and very nice beach area. The staff at the pool area were very nice and accommodating. The front desk was not as willing to help.
The rooms were dated and the beds were not very comfortable. I felt the price did not justify the quality of the rooms. The entire place needs updating.
Price of the restaurant meals
location, option to bring my dog
My beds were not comfortable, slept terribly.
Great location right on the beach, just a few steps from the pool, rooms looking out over the beach are fantastic in the tower. Tikki bar is great value especially during happy hour. Staff very very helpful. The free bus service into St Armounds square is brilliant but have to pick your times as it gets understandably busy.
The pool gets very busy and got quite dirty, even scummy so much so that I didn't want to get in it :-(( and I love the water. Can get quite noisy with large groups. First room was facing out over the road and above the restaurant which made it impossible to be able to sit out on because of the smell and heat as there was no breeze.
Location and room itself served its purpose.
High priced for old tower smelly elavators and both pool and jacuzzi not very clean
This is not a luxury resort, but a very comfortable 3-star boutique resort on the beach front n with very hospitable service. We had a spacious, clean n comfortable standard double room with a nicely equipped kitchenette. Staff, be they from front desk, operators or housekeeping, were all very helpful n efficient in providing service. Very good value for money indeed. Make sure you get your room in the new high-rise building, which is in much better conditions than the shabby old wing. The 2 pools are nice as long as they are not crowded, n the hot jacuzzis are super! Oh yes, the food on the 8th floor restaurant was excellent despite their higher-than-average prices and 20 pct service charge.
The swimming pools were at times very crowded for their sizes, and guests shouldn't be allowed to bring their drinks to the pools or to swim with their shirts on - which is rather unhygienic.
I liked the facilities in the room
We stayed in the old building which was old , no carpets on the floor, air condition very noisy , shower not comfortable
The location of this resort was fantastic! Loved being right on the beach! We enjoyed the beach, pool, and the bus service to St. Armand's circle. The staff was very friendly and accomadating.
The room we stayed in was a double. The bed was small and I thought the pillows and linens were cheap and uncomfortable. The lamp and tv remote did not work. (Although, the front desk did take care of the remote promptly after we called). Overall the room was just okay and in need of updating.
great staff, good food, great bar. plenty of ocean side chairs, nice views. easy parking. short walk or drive away from St Armands Circle. easy 15 minutes from the airport.
lousy beds-2 body sized depressions in the main bed where too many people have slept. lousy pull out sofa-some of my guests had to sleep on the floor with the matresses from roll away beds. all very uncomfortable. carpeting needed replacement in the bed room, poor tv quality although all channels came in--should be high def in both bed room and main room. both pools had filtration and chemical problems. The place needs to be updated !! not as good a trip there as it was several years ago .
We took our daughters to this resort for the first time and had the best time with each other and also made some friends while we were there!
Very nice staff!
Kids pool got closed ( an "accident" happened ).... So all little kids were allowed in the adult pool for an entire Saturday afternoon.
Pool / spa!
Staff security every rude I paid $ 1200 plus dollars and was ignored !!!! Simple question as how do I walk around to get back in from beech cause gate was locked and I was brushed off had to walk to public path down the road !!! And also siting wait for a cab and my fieoncie was approached to buy drugs she was scared to where I had to tell front desk and again it was laughed off by staff cause " he was not a guest there and was very drunk" I was ever upset I spent good money for a first vacation together , little get away before the wedding to for get about the stress ( on 1/9/14 our house burned down ) we were very excited to just get away and the boat race ..... It would of been nice to have been warned we actually had to leave the hotel and go to siesta beech which costed 30 each way ! Your beech was beautiful pool very nice but we were very unhappy with our stay
Location, pool, beach, and tiki bar! Also shuttle very convenient!
The room needed to be updated!! It was clean but old!! Bathroom really needed some work! But the view, beach and pool make up for it!
Registration was quick and smooth. All hotel attendants were very friendly, professional (which I loved)helpful and all around just awesome! Our maid was exceptional, don't ever lose her! She is very hardworking and conscientious about her work!! (I know, I own a cleaning business) Pool and beach were amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of this hotel and Lido Beach! We will most definitely stay here again!
Bar and pool hours could be longer (on the weekends). Maybe have Karaoke, solo band or something entertaining and engaging for guests.
Pool and bar area were very nice. Our room, 445, was also very nice
Elevator was slow, old and very hot!
I have been coming here for years since our children were small. The location is excellent but the property needs updating. The staff is friendly and we recognize some of the same faces year after year. The rooms need to be updated. For the price we could stay somewhere else but at a certain point they need to replace carpet, tile and bedding. It hasn't changed in years!
The decor and carpet in the rooms is the same as it has been for the last 10 years! I'm not kidding. The comforters on the bed are in desperate need of updating as is the carpet and tile. We love the location and continue to come back but at a certain point the value may not be worth the facility.
Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Love the shuttle service and parking garage. It's great to know that my private vehicle does not have to brave the elements while I'm out on the beach. Being able to walk from the resor to the beach without driving your car, or crossing the street is a great advantage.
I love to sit in hot tubs, but when we were there, only one hot tub was working properly. The temperature was not up to par. My friend's room smelled like someone left a dead fish in the microwave and you can smeel it through the vents. They have to move five rooms down from where they were in order to get rid of the smell.
We liked your hotel alot and had a great time!
Some problems with wifi. Maybe take away the seaweed at the beach.
We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was clean, quiet and it's a great location. The beach was lovely and we enjoyed the restaurant. We would go again.
We didn't expect to have to pay extra for an umbrella on the beach. It should be included for the price of the room.
Spacious room, great privacy.
Many fire drills and the internet was down for both day.
