Rented a single queen in the 4 story for 4 days in early November. The room was nice and airy with no smell but could use an update. However, bought some fudge the first night and left it unopened on the counter. Despite being on the 4th floor, the next morning we had an ant infestation. I only asked them...

Lido Beach Resort offered everything we expected! Parking on premises, comfort, cleanliness, polite and professional staff, super room service and the best view of the Gulf!!!! Pool and beach area was clean, food and drink service by the pool was great!

Our first visit to Lido Beach Resort won't be our last. The property is just beautiful. I read where it was outdated but we didn't see it. When we checked in they said they said they had no more junior suites but they had upgraded us to a full suite. It was gorgeous! We did eat breakfast the first day,...

We spent six nights here and had a wonderful time. Some reviews here say that the property is dated, and there are a few dings around the edges, but overall its still quite nice.
