It depends what you need and like, but without a beach this hotel was best for the money. Clean, fresh décor; modern design; spacious rooms; nice pool; and bar-none the best room service food we've ever had. Conch chowder was absolutely amazing, and we are VERY picky. Fresh juices, great burger and huge Cobb salad were just what the doctor (my husband) ordered, and we were astounded by the quality, after eating at Armand's Circle and along Long Boat Key for days. Actually stayed at the Ritz for 3 nights previous and while lovely it had some issues that the Hyatt rose far above, and we won't discuss here. Simply felt more like "us" at the Hyatt, and that's something that's hard to put a finger on at times.
Lido Beach resort is a great place to stay. It was very clean and everyone was helpful and friendly. We stayed the week they had soccer teams there for a East coast tournament and it was quiet. We would definitely stay there again.
Best Location ( on the beach right next door to the Ritz Carlton Beach Club), friendly dedicated staff, great pool area, and most reasonably priced hotel on Lido. This is not a 'fancy' resort, and the hotel has a retro feel (the main hotel was built in the 1950's as one of the fist on Lido Beach and additions were made until the 80's). The Sand Castle was part of the Helmsley Resort Empire and was in trust for many years following Leona's death. It was allegedly willed to her dog Troubles who finally passed away (three years ago?).
This is a wonderful property with a colorful history. Rumor has it that at midnight you can hear the ghost of Leona berating the staff in the kitchen or swimming laps in the pool. The Queen still stands guard.
A very convenient hotel although a little challenging to find at first. There were all the conveniences that you needed including an outdoor barbecue. The beach was a short walk away and the sand was the almost like talcum powder. The staff were very helpful and the beds very comfortable. It needs a bit of a refresh as the sink in the bathroom was cracked and the toilet seemed to rock when you sat down
