Our family had a gathering for my father's celebration of life in the sunset room which had a fantastic view of Lido Beach which was so symbolic to my dad's life.

We stayed here for 5 days in May. The room was nice and the staff were great at check in - very accommodating and did everything they could to get us in early. The staff at the pool bar were lacking - not friendly and took forever to get waited on. Most of the other customers at the pool area...

Really like this place. 3rd year in a row this time for our 39th Wedding anniversary. Great staff, nice beach area, big tiki bar. Two pools, one just for adults (nice). Always stay in older 4 story building, gulf side, but best thing this year was beautifully re-modeled and updated rooms. Will do it again for our 40th anniversary.

The Internet (including Trip Advisor) said that the Grille at the Lido Beach Resort had the best/top rated brunch in Sarasota --- and that is true. First-time visitors to the Grille, Resort, and Lido Beach and it was all wonderful. Mandatory reservations (made several days in advance) took the stress out of the event. May weather added to our overall...

Nice renovated rooms but not worth the $75 per night per pet fee...! We travel with our two small 10lb dogs so to add $150 per night to an already pricey ticket seems ridiculous..!

The staff was extremely friendly and went the extra mile to make my check in process and stay so easy. The room was gorgeous, very clean, comfortable bed (which does not get rating very often!) And was well stocked with kitchen supplies. The resort itself was spotless and the beach location was great!

We stayed here for a girls weekend in a 2 bedroom penthouse suite in the newer building (most expensive room they offer). Im rating it a 2 instead of a 1 because the suite itself was nice; however, the hallway was hot, muggy and smelled like mildew. Check-in was late (excuse was they were sold out the night before) and...
