Why We Love It

  • Location is the highlight of this mid-range hotel -- it's directly on a calm, clean white-sand beach with waters ideal for swimming and snorkeling
  • A 5-minute drive from the shops, restaurants and galleries of St. Armands Circle 
  • Rooms are showing their wear somewhat, but gorgeous views and complimentary Wi-Fi make up for it
  • Guests can dine outdoors looking out over the gulf at the restaurant and cafe

Breezy private balconies overlook a tranquil Floridian scene, comprising white sand and turquoise water, at the Sandcastle Resort at Lido Beach in Sarasota, Florida. Between the million-dollar views and the convenient location, guests will have a hard time complaining about the somewhat tired decor in these reasonably sized rooms. 

A multitude of activities await, such as renting bikes or walking 10 minutes to St. Armands Circle, where a horse-drawn carriage can ferry travelers past quaint shops, fresh seafood restaurants and galleries featuring local artists. Or opt to hit a few balls at nearby championship golf courses, unwind in the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico or sip cocktails by the pool.

An on-site cafe serves a reasonably priced breakfast on a large, sunny patio, plus there's lunch served poolside. Seafood, steaks and drinks are available at the on-site Candlelight Restaurant and Lounge, or guests can walk back into St. Armands Circle and choose from a wide array of dining options.
