Score from 265 reviews Very good
The pool and beach access are unparalleled. The ease of the city is delightful and the quiet makes for the most soothing getaway.
Room amenities are slightly dated, and the lack of the nicer finishing touches (a glass drinking glass?) stand out. Wifi was strong, but only one device at a time. In the era of two people traveling together with phones, tablets, etc? This seemed odd.
The beachfront was great.
Bathroom needs updating and more room.
Comfortable room and bed. Excellent Pool area with Bar and on Saturday afternoon there was a Singer. Very adjacent to lovely beach - for which the Hotel provided beds etc.
Slightly away from central area - but (free) shuttle service provided until circa 10.30pm.
On the beach convenience & friendly staff!
The staff was so accommodating. Prices for everything was reasonable. Will recommend Sandcastle to everyone. Had a wonderful time and you will see us again.
We had a room with Seaview and a kind of balcony. 2 minutes to go to the beach. nice staff helping us to have 3 hours free bicycle ride informal atmosphere I will be back!
This was fantastic, the only bad thing was noise from tech. installation during night time, preventing me from optimal sleep
Next to the beach.
We moved to 3 different rooms. Cleanliness issue,bugs. I took a video of the bugs in there.
Beach view on 2nd floor was obstructed by tree Insects made their way up the tree and we spent time combatting and being bit. Maintenance sprayed but root of problem was the sea grape tree and proximity to porch. Door mechanism made a gurgling noise all night long making an impact on sleep The NO signs were negative - how about "please use only striped towels on the beach" How you present makes a difference
Lovely hotel. Staff helpful and friendly. The room opened on to the beach and was comfortable, light and airy. Ideal place to unwind after the theme parks in Orlando.
The guests in the room above banged and crashed around . Better sound insulation on the floor/ceiling would help.
Location on beach near park. Quadrangle of pool, restaurant, tiki bar was expansive and very comfortable. Main pool was really large and nice. Beach was clean. Sandcastle advertises in Europe; chatted with several folks from England and Holland. Individual staff we encounter were very helpful and friendly.
While the room itself was very clean and maintained the several buildings housing the rooms were showing quite a bit of age and were shabby. Granted there is only so much to be done to concrete block structures the property could stand attention. Understand until recently was owned by Helmsley and new owners did not keep many of the experienced staff.
Excellent location at the beach
Wifi wasnt very good
clerk missed wake up call reservations were for smoking restaurant employee ran into courtyard to protest lighting cig approx 20 ft from designated smoking spot . I missed property showing and sale as result of clerk placing w/u call in the a.m. when requested in p.m. lost money and embarrassed. please remove foot.
everything except for menu selection at dinner
menu selection was limited
On. The beach
the maintenance not updated especially the tub and faucet .the handle on the faucet hard to turn.we have to call the office to have it repaired. Very small bathroom .
The staff is fantastic, the food very good, the rooms clean and comfortable. It's an older place but perfectly nice!
My only complaint was the live music with the poolside room made it impossible to grab an afternoon nap. And that's not really a complaint, I guess.
Lido is one of the most beautiful places on Earth and this resort was a great way to enjoy it. It is not a fancy hotel but it is very nice. A great value for the money. The beach staff was excellent!! And having a shuttle to St. Armand's circle was terrific! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Friendly staff On beach
Beds were as hard as rocks Guess outside room extremely loud after midnight No sleep after a long drive
Gulf view room right on the beach. We could hear the sea as we went to sleep. Staff very friendly and helpful. Dolphins a bonus on first morning! We will go back.
Excellent location directly on the beach opposite the ocean. The pool was nice.
The room was small, dark and ill-smelling. The shower had been temporarily repaired with a towel, and it broke finally just opened the water.
Pool and deck area around it and beach access
Room was drab and bath very small Carpet kinda dirty
Great location, next to the beach. Good beach facilities with chairs and parasols.
The rooms are poor, This is jus a motel near the sea.
Great location! The beach is beautiful. Glad I was able to obtain a good deal on the room rates.
Expensive paddle and kayak rental. I received complimentary bike use but we were told the service is only until 5:00 pm. Sundown in Fl westcoast is at 8:15 pm. Pool bar also closed very early. Extra bed comforter smelled horribly. Would not have paid "regular" room rates for this resort.
Had a room on the gulf and couldn't have asked for a better view. Even though the hotel is older, the beds are comfortable. The staff was excellent and very helpful.
Excellent Location Free Shuttle to Armands Circle
Rooms tired and need updating.
