The Lido Beach Resort has a split personality. The four story low-rise tower is the budget-friendly option that past guests say is outdated and badly in need of renovations. The multi-story tower is fresh and modern with positive feedback on TripAdvisor from those who’ve stayed there.
Other than the disparity between the two towers, both share the oceanfront location and over 300 feet of private soft sand beach. For those who don’t like to get sandy, there are two separate freeform pools overlooking the ocean, one for families and one adults-only. Have it your way and splash with the kiddos or enjoy a quieter immersion. Towel service and chairs are included on and off the beach, as is the spectacular sunset show at night.
Grab a bite at the laid-back Tiki Bar or make your own lunch back at your room. Nearly all of the rooms and suites have full kitchenettes, saving you the hassle and expense of overpriced meals. Included daily are two large bottled waters and a free bag of microwave popcorn.
When you’re ready to take a break from the sun, the hotel has a free on-call shuttle to take your to nearby St. Armand’s Circle, a mini-island with stores and boutiques encircling a central park.
Be sure when booking your room to request the renovated tower, otherwise your experience might be less than stellar.
