Quirky informal staff
Old, run down, cracked sinks, poor beat up elevator.
Location and tiki bar
Lack of hot water for showers, cracked floor tiles especially in and around bathroom
Excellent location! Beach front hotel on a quiet street, within walking distance of St. Armands, and a few minutes drive to downtown. The heated pools and hot tubs were very nice. We would definitely stay here again.
"Beach view" was a room that faced the parking garage of their much newer building. The beach could only be viewed at the end of the alley in which our room was located.
It was my birthday so we requested top floor if possible and they did just that, along with a beautiful view. Loved the interior, pleasant beach colors, new feeling. They offered a shuttle to St Armand's Circle which was great. Staff was so nice all around.
Just one thing and I hate saying this however the bed pillows we a little flat and hard. Had to double up on pillows to get comfortable. Bed was comfortable though.
Bed, tiki bar, pools/hot tubs, pillows, all amenities including the great food at their restaurant s. The beach &ocean are gorgeous.closeness to St. Armand Circle was great.
First room on 11/15/14 was buggy, had cracked floor tiles and frayed carpeting.front desk was not inputting info in computer so we were checked out early when in fact we booked an extra night.All in all a great vacation..would go there again!
Location, location, location!
The tacked on extra resort fees to have a beach towel and a newspaper. A real rip off!
Beach access and location were outstanding.
Lobby attendants were a bit snooty. Did not feel overly welcomed. Room furnished were a bit dated.
Bathroom, size of an airplane with a shower. No windows to look out. Felt like I was in an aquarium. I was told about the common terrace. Because it's common, couldn't even keep my curtains open. Was in the dark the whole time.
great food and staff. Liked Happy hour at the pool.
Breakfast service slow.
The friendly staff and laid back atmosphere. Right on beach and a shuttle to st. armands circle for shopping or dining!! Would definetly stay there again.
The hotel was undergoing renovations but they were very accomadating to guests as not to disturb there vacay.
Beach, restaurant, Tiki bar
lack off view
The location, pool, restaurant, and staff were all terrific. The view of the Gulf from our room was very nice. There was a small refrigerator and microwave in the room. The room was a very nice size.
We had a King room in the main building on the 4th (top) floor. The room was in need of a refurbishment. The sink in the bathroom was cracked. The paint in the bathroom was peeling. The grout around the outside of the shower stall was black. The furniture in the room was very cheap looking. I've stayed in much nicer hotel for less money.
Bed was not a 250/night bed Vending Machine was a hunt Requested eary check in.... Nope Construction crews
I liked the beach, pools, and the Tiki Bar.
The resort is old and under renovation. Our room faced a high rise which was under renovation not the ocean view which we expected. When my daughter turned down the bed, there was a strange hair clip with hair attached to it. The carpet was dirty and there were holes in the bathroom door frames. The $25 resort fee did not include the umbrella. All of the food comes from the same kitchen. With a few exceptions, the staff was polite. On our last day, we ordered room service and we're told it was not available because the person who delivered it was out. Later a waiter delivered a plastic cup of orange juice and a container of three small Danish pastries. No coffee cream or anything else. I told him would not pay for it and he returned with a pot of coffee. Lido beach Resrt is a dump and I would not recommend it or booking.com to anyone.
Beach chair service. Room service.
Construction/noise. Price for non-oceanfront room. House keeping didnt come by once to restock coffee, TP etc.
Could not fault this hotel, big room, lovely pools, the adult pool was great and very peaceful. Tiki bar was fun and the rooftop bar and restaurant were great. One of the best meals I've had in Florida in the rooftop restaurant.
The staff were very accommodating and moved our room to the top floor overlooking the pool. Easy access to the beach. Good food in the restaurants. Great shuttle service to St Armand circle. Nice lounge chairs on the beach and the sea weed was picked up daily.
We were in the older building and the walls are very thin. The room next door had a broken toilet so it flushed all night. Also heard other people walking around above us. Did not get any sleep the first night.
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
2 waitress for breakfast , it took too long to get service
location, option to bring my dog
My beds were not comfortable, slept terribly.
I don't know if I found enough for the two hundred characters minimum for as you can see I have already repeated what you have already stated. The bed was very comfortable, We Enjoyed the pool and spa, and beach was very nice and enjoyed our walk out there.
At check in no one was around as far as bellhops, the man at the front desk was unpleasant with a cold hello, here is your room, and can I see your credit card. When we entered the room I thought we went back in time to 1979, lamps where broken, wood trim needed repair and painting, shower needed new caulk, and the drawer fronts where broken and fixed by maintenance with a too long screw and up to 5 washers. The tiki hut bar was closing too early and the bar tender made it known it was none too soon. Overpriced for the value I received.
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.
Loved the location - so close to the beach. Loved the pool/bar area.
We didn't have A/C the first day. Also, there were little ants all over the kitchen - I told the maid, but they remained until the end of our 3 day stay. I thought the prices would be lower since we visited during the "dead" time, late August. A little too pricey for this time of year.
