    Property beautiful. Everyone was nice!! Felt mostly safe! Would love to visit again!

    The cost per night just under 400$! So it was expensive. Seemed to be a lot of vacancy’s at hotel! Maybe if they lowered price they could fill those vacancy’s up!!

About

Overview

Lido Beach Resort offers guests contemporary lodgings in one of Florida’s most enviable beachside destinations. Its rooms and amenities make it an ideal spot for business travelers, couples, families, and groups alike.

Located on Lido Key in Sarasota, Lido Beach Resort is situated on a private beach overlooking the Gulf Coast. It’s close to many popular attractions, like St. Armands Island, Bird Key, Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

Accommodations are beach-inspired, modern, and spread across different buildings. Guests may choose guest rooms or kitchenettes in the Tiki Building, ideal for two to four guests, or guest rooms, junior suites, and suites in the Palm Building, offering more space and bay-view balconies.

Dining choices are plentiful and thoughtful. For upscale cuisine, be sure to visit Lido Beach Grille. The famous Gulf-front Tiki Bar is perfect for inspired cocktails in the open air. Café Lido serves fresh and casual eats in an inviting setting.

For amenities and services, Lido Beach Resort leaves little to be desired. There are two beachfront pools, one for adults only and one for the whole family, as well as a 24-hour fitness center. Guests can enjoy beach volleyball, and bicycle rentals are available to explore the boardwalk with ease. The spacious events center is ideal for social and business events alike.

Whether in Sarasota for work or play, a stay at Lido Beach Resort ensures guests enjoy a visit filled with indulgence, relaxation, and a beautiful ambience.
