Liked the transportation to Armand’s Circle and Beach Club. Beach Club was nice. Food was good at Jack Dusty. Beautiful hotel. Sheets were dirty upon arrival. Greeting upon arrival was nothing special. Room was not ready upon arrival. Could not accommodate a room upgrade. Upon checking out, we noticed that people who were arriving were offered a complimentary glass of champagne, we were not. Also, offered a room upgrade even though they had not requested it. We asked in advance for a room upgrade and did not receive one although we were satisfied with our room. We received a phone call from front desk saying they had received phone calls that our music was too loud. It was no louder than the tv on normal volume. Not sure what that was about.

A beautiful property, wonderful beach club location is excellent close to shopping and dinning. Staff attentive and super friendly.

Absolutely the best! The staff was extremely helpful, efficient and willing to help in anyway. The room had stunning views, the most comfortable bed and clean beautiful bathroom! Wow! Would stay her again in a heartbeat!

Nice room view of the marina & Awesome Beach Club on Lido key (short shuttle ride). Hotel was clean & Covid procedures followed. Service Excellent throughout! Walking distance to Whole Food (in town)! Hotel restaurant good but expensive. Recommend Duval Fresh, Dry Dock, Owens Fish Camp, Drift, & Blue Dolphin in Armands circle for breakfast!

A beautiful place to stay , staff was amazing, very attentive. The room was spacious and clean. Great location. The beach club was amazing. Staff was very friendly and helpful with anything you needed. It was nice that they had sunscreen lotion and after sunning skin care lotion on hand . Nice menu at beach club and drinks where very good.

everyone was very friendly and courteous,very professional. The hotel was also very clean

Lido beach property was fantastic. Superior services. Excellent attentiveness.

The Ritz-Carlton stays are always #1. We chose this location as my dad recently retired to Sarasota area. We'll definitely go back. Hotel was extremely nice. As the hotel sits in the city and not on the beach, you can take a short shuttle ride to the sister site Ritz-Carlton residences and enjoy full-service, beautiful pool, beach access and Tiki Bar. Not a hassle at all and frequent shuttles. The main hotel in Sarasota has an excellent pool area too but we like being by the beach with our kids.

The service was as expected, over the top! You feel like royalty at the ritz. Definitely a must for any occasion. They very accommodating and helpful. My trip wouldn't have been the same if I stayed elsewhere. Thank you

everything was awesome.. if i could afford it I would def stay again and again.

The guest services were excellent. They were very attentive to every need and gave great suggestions for food and entertainment.

Happy with transportation to town for shopping and eating and transportation to beach. Easy to use, ran frequently

Fantastic hotel with beautiful facilities. Would definitely stay again!

Nice hotel close to downtown . Has own private beach and shuttle service.
