Great experience, such a friendly staff and beautiful rooms. My guests and I all flew in from out of town and it was so refreshing to have an ocean view to wake up in the morning. Everyone had a lot of fun and had a great relaxing vacation during our trip. My wedding was a success, so happy and will definitely come back on another occasion first chance I get to come back to FL.

In the middle of our wedding planning, the resort hired a new wedding planner (Brynn) and she is fantastic! She is very responsive and flexible and organized. The resort is beautiful and the food is VERY good. We had no issues during our wedding weekend and we had several events including our brunch at the resort. The beach and resort was a perfect place for our photos and very comfortable for our guests to stay and enjoy the beauty of Lido Key. I couldn't be more pleased with our choice to have our wedding at this venue!

I absolutely LOVED our wedding. Our wedding was a dream come true! Prior to booking at LBR I read previous reviews about the onsite wedding coordinator, Mandy. I was very excited to meet and work with her. She was AMAZING! Everyone that we came in contact with at LBR was extremely helpful, including Rachel, Brynn, Amanda, Kim, and Mo. The tasting went so well, that I was afraid that the food would not be the same at the actual wedding. We were not disappointed; the food was excellent, and all of our guests were thrilled. We planned for an outdoor ceremony that had to be moved in due to inclement weather the day of. The ceremony still ended up being very beautiful. We even had a great check-in experience at the front desk. The agent was very friendly and engaging. If you are looking for a beautiful venue, great food, gorgeous views, with a highly professional staff, LBR is the venue in Sarasota for you.

My husband I planned our wedding at the Lido Beach Resort from NC. Mandy Piekarski was great to work with. I almost always got a response back to any of my emails within hours if Mandy was working that day or very early in the morning once Mandy returned to work. Mandy ensured that every detail was handled for our reception, and it allowed my husband and I to really enjoy our reception and for it to be a stress free fun night! The food was absolutely amazing, we did a duo plate of grouper and filet mignon, and our bartender for the reception had memorized what everyone was drinking by the end of the cocktail hour and made sure everyone's glass stayed full through the remainder of the night! We had our reception in the Sunset Terrace and had 46 guests and a dance floor which was perfect for that space. Everyone enjoyed seeing the sunset that evening. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there as well and so we stayed on the property for a total of 8 nights...we had a blast! The property and beach are gorgeous and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. If you want to have an amazing wedding/reception and to be able to enjoy every moment of it and know that everything and anything will be handled....then I would highly recommend having your wedding/reception at the Lido Beach Resort :)

My husband and I chose the Lido Beach Resort for our wedding and reception because not only is the setting beautiful but we really liked the event manager! Everyone we worked with amazed us at their professional knowledge, patience, and willingness to help. They went above and beyond anything we could have expected! The food was amazing, I can't over state that (many of my guest complimented it). The guest rooms were gorgeous and everyone loved them! The crowning jewel is the Sunset Terrace reception room.With spectacular views of Lido and Sarasota it was the perfect place to follow the beach wedding at sunset. It was so stunningly beautiful we didn't need to add any decoration!

The best part was the day of the wedding, after so much planning, we both had a few hours to sit by the pool and the beach. It meant so much that the resort had everything taken care of so we could take a moment and prepare for the idea that the next time we would see each other we'd be married! I never thought I'd get that and it was invaluable.

I would HIGHLY recommend the LBR for any of your needs. From the event coordinator, Mandy, to the front desk staff and everyone in-between this resort knows exactly what their doing and what you'll need! Their helpfulness from the first visit to the day we checked out as a married couple was outstanding and unparalleled.

Mandy and Lido Beach Resort was awesome. Everyone was so impressed with the facility (other than the low rise rooms - they need an upgrade which I understand is coming soon). Food was fantastic, the sunset room was gorgeous. The only hiccup was when the bellman delivered our wedding flowers to the wrong room. Luckily it was to my brother (same last name) so it was more of a laugher than a stressor.

I highly recommend Lido Beach Resort for weddings! We were supposed to have a beach ceremony but it had rained. I am so glad that they had a second option. Mandy did great with everything and really put me at ease!! She went over and beyond and did all the decorating we had provided since there was an event before ours. She stayed in touch and gave advice throughout my planning!! I had worked at the resort when we had first moved to FL and we continue to visit! They have an excellent staff!! Thank you to Mandy and team for making our wedding day special and unforgettable!
