10.0 Excellent
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.
2.0 Bad
Cons:No hot water and the staff seemed not to give a damn
3.7 Poor
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.
10.0 Excellent
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!
4.8 Mediocre
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 .
10.0 Excellent
Pros:really great place
Cons:a little to expensive
9.7 Excellent
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.
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:the beach and the shoppes
Cons:room was old and out dated tiles broken carpet ripped room was just run down.
5.3 Passable
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.
5.6 Passable
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.
