Lido Beach Resort is beautiful - very high end. We stayed here as our flight was cancelled - we were able to access our room 30 minutes before official check-in. We grabbed dinner at the little market onsite and the food was good. We were traveling with young children and to be honest I probably would not stay there again with young kids - it felt more like an adults only or families with older kids. It was very high end so if you are looking for casual - not your place. We did love the room we stayed in and had a view of the ocean. I would totally stay at this location again with just my husband or for a girls trip.

domenico, Feb 2020

Pros. Nothing

Cons. No hot water and the staff seemed not to give a damn

Rob, Aug 2019

Pros. If you don't want to see the beach (despite marketing that shows otherwise) and want to pay Ritz rates for Super 8 rooms, this is your place.

Cons. Room was ...what can I say? It was lime a cheap motel room. Not a resort. It was overloiking the parking lor and smelled bad. Wife was reallt disappointed, and had we not already paid, we would have walked out and gone somewhere else. I never leave reviews, but think that futire victims should be warned.

Pros. The rooms were modern, clean and cool. Views of the ocean, and kids loved the pool and ocean. So convenient to St Armand's Circle - we walked there and also used the hotel van which was great. We all enjoyed our stay and there was 10 of us!

Anonymous, Apr 2016

Pros. I liked the proximity to the beach .

Cons. Our room was filthy. It looked like the only thing that was changed between guests was the bedding... And I'm not even sure about that .

carwal123, Aug 2015

Pros. really great place

Cons. a little to expensive

trwyman111, Aug 2015

Pros. To my surprise we were upgraded to the newly renovated rooms in the south tower. We were given a two bedroom suite with kitchenet and double balcony with amazing views. Even though it rained and was overcasted most of the time we still had a fantastic stay, for the simple reason that the accommodations were so great.

roland, Nov 2014

Pros. the beach and the shoppes

Cons. room was old and out dated tiles broken carpet ripped room was just run down.

Chris, May 2014

Pros. The location and beach are great. The poolside tiki hut is a place I could stay all day, and the pina coladas were great.

Cons. The rooms are old. Mold in the shower and baseboards are falling apart. Our group had 4 rooms at the resort and all of them were the same (and yes, all had mold on the shower curtain). When paying $200+ per night, you should get a lot more.

Jack, Mar 2014

Pros. Great location, that's about all they have though

Cons. Paid rate of nearly $350 for a Friday night, tried to check in at 6 room wasn't ready, had to go back and check in again at 7:30. Horrible room next to parking lot and noisy early morning housekeeping carts. Next morning housekeeping was knocking at 10 a.m. to vacate and clean the room. Buyer beware as they say. Won't be back.
