Stayed in studio with 'half' kitchen. Small rooms. Look at pictures to see if suitable for you. Beach narrow and pool area felt crowded. Stayed in newly renovated rooms which were nicely updated. Parking is added on automatically but you can ask for it to be deleted. Plenty of parking overnight on side streets.

The hotel staff were very helpful, the location was great as was our spacious room. We really enjoyed the pool, access to the beach and walking distance to Armand's circle to shop and eat. This hotel has a lot of amenities including a tiki bar with full service and close to the beach and the pools.

Stayed in March 2017 for 7 nights. Very disappointed on arrival to get room 106 in the smaller of the two accommodation buildings. This room felt very unused and almost like one of the temporary rooms that hotels offer to get showered and changed on your final day if leaving on a late flight !! There was no safety deposit...

This is our first time at Lido Beach. Nice, spacious, clean rooms. Beautiful facilities BUT needs plenty of room to improve service at the restaurant ( this is our 4th day with more than 30 min to get breakfast served) Waiters seem overwhelmed due to understaffing issues. At the beach limited help to get chairs. We still have three more...

We had a nice early dinner and happy hour by the pool then enjoyed a beautiful sunset on the beach. Room was gorgeous and very comfortable. The Tiki Bar was very fun and made you feel at home while enjoying your stay. St Armand's Circle close by and there is a free shuttle from resort.

We had a lovely visit there after we returned to the US from abroad to decompress. It is a bit pricey in the height of the Winter Season but the location, amenities & pet friendly option made it worth it. At times a bit of disconnect communicating w/ front desk housekeeping but with patience & persistence all was eventually handled....

We had a lovely dinner here enjoying a remarkable top floor sunset view of ocean and surrounding community. The service was good. The food was fine and the bar area had lively music. Before 7 it was not busy.

Lovely clean room for my husband and I. Extremely spacious bed - and my gosh was it comfortable!!!!! Room cleaned every day about 3pm, no complaints... We were on the 2nd floor, very quiet - I wouldn't have wanted a ground floor with people walking past - although everything seems to close at 10.30 so it's not a noisy hotel...

Thank you for your kind review, newly renovated rooms with Beautyrest mattresses, a great tiki bar and the shuttle to circle. Sorry we close early but county mandates with a noise ordinance. Hope to see you again soon.

Loved our one night stay at Lido Beach Resort last weekend. Got an early check-in and upgrade to the 10th floor which had an absolutely beautiful view and stayed in a 1 bedroom premium suite so gorgeous. Staff was very friendly even helped with printing our boarding pass. The Tiki bar was fun and happy drinks great thanks to Woody....

Another great stay at this resort! We have stayed here several times and are never disappointed. We both grew up in the area and love to visit St Armand's, so we like to stay somewhere in close proximity to the circle. This resort is always clean, efficient, and friendly. We even had a smoke detector go off and within minutes...
