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!

My overall experience with the Lido Beach Resort was amazing. When I was first looking at possible wedding locations in the Sarasota area, I was focused on the Ritz, Philippe Creek, The Water Club (Ritz), Ringling, and The Oaks Club Ballroom. I looked at all of the above locations and had major hesitations with all of them. After a stressful day of visits, we stopped at the Lido Beach Tiki Bar for happy hour to relax. While we were there we realized that they were setting up for a wedding on the beach and that they had a ballroom upstairs. After checking it all out and ending up in the Sunset Terrace for a cocktail at sunset we knew we had found the perfect location. Mandy and Kim were fantastic to work with and very responsive. I was lucky enough to have most of my friends and family come down to spend a week with us at the resort leading up to our wedding and it was fantastic! Everyone raved about the food, the service and how beautiful and fun it was. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue! I would absolutely recommend this location for anyone looking to have a wedding, party, vacation or even a great night out for dinner.

I will definitely reccomend the lido beach resort for any friends looking to get married in Florida. The vendor list provided was also very helpful. I liked how everyone knew the place before coming. There was no concern over what equipment would be needed because they had all been there before. The food was also good.

One word sums up my experience at the lido beach resort... AMAZING! In florida you will find NO BETTER venue than here. Lauren is out of this world. She is sweet as can be and understands what its like to be a bride whether you are a nervous wreck or totally laid back, she can help design the wedding of your dreams. The view from the sunset terrace is amazing. You get the ballroom feel with gorgeous views of the gulf of mexico. They even know what time sunset will be for your date so that you get just the perfect view. Everything was well thought out. My family and my husbands have RAVED about the entire process. In fact, they came back to stay at the resort just for a vacation. Look no further for a phenomenal venue!

Mandy was great to work with. Really helped me out throughout the whole process, from start to finish. Beautiful resort, and everyone had a great time! Wish the room block rates were a little more affordable for guests, but overall wouldn't have changed a thing. We loved our reception in every way and the staff was fantastic!!!!!

My wedding was more beautiful than I ever dreamed of. I wouldn't have changed a thing. I did feel it was slightly more money than I had expected causing me to go over my planned budget. Like I said I wouldn't have changed a thing & loved every second from the suite, to the ceremony, to the reception. The staff and food was amazing. They were always there when you needed anything, yet not overwhelming. I would suggest this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful beach wedding.

I was so happy with my ceremony and reception at Lido Beach Resort. I live in Pennsylvania and so this was a destination wedding. I planned mostly through e-mail with Lauren. She was amazing to work with. She responded quickly and was very helpful in working with me to find a package that fit our needs. Lauren was promoted and now Mandy is the coordinator. She was helpful as well. She and the staff did a beautiful job setting up the Sunset Terrace room. At the reception Tadd was in charge and very helpful. The food was delicious, although some of the steak was very red. There were no hidden fees and they left strawberries and champagne in our suite. The only thing I would have liked was a free room on our wedding night. Everything else was what I dreamed of and more. The resort is beautiful and the beach is nice and private for a wedding=)

My husband and I got married at the Lido Beach Resort almost a year ago, and loved every second of our wonderful day. As we were getting married right at the start of the rainy season, the resort provides a place for the ceremony to take place in case of rain. They also provide a sound system on the beach that not many other resorts provide for you. Being from out of state, they provided a list of people they recommended for different serives...a few who we went with and were amazing. The food was exceptional and the waitstaff was great all night. We wish we could do it all over again for our 1 year anniversary! :)

I had an unbelievable wedding at the Lido Beach resort. Lauren Thompson was so great to work with. She had answers to me in a timely fashion and was incredibly patient with my constant harassment with questions. The beach was incredible for the ceremony. The food was amazing! Filet was perfect. The rooms are a little expensive and there are a few extra fees I didn't except at first, but my overall experience was fantastic!

Was very pleased with the Lido Beach Resort services. This was a destination wedding for majority of the guests, so Kim and Mandy did a great job with handling all the Food Menu, along with, Room arrangements. There was a few problems with booking some of the rooms with the guests, but they were able to fix the problem very quickly. The views from the rooms, were absolutely breathtaking. Had a hard time leaving the resort for sure. The food was very good.

The Lido Beach Resort was the perfect place to have my wedding as I wanted to find a location that offerred a beach wedding with an indoor reception for a small party. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, but my event coordinator (Mandy) was able to quickly secure an indoor location. I had many last minute changes and decisions to make, which got to be very stressful and I'm not sure I made the best choices. That being said, once the ceremony started, almost everything else fell into place. (I did have at least one minor glitch). The food was delicious, highly recommended, and our servers for the evening were fantastic. It really didn't matter to anyone that Tropical Storm Debby was going on outside. It was a very special, happy day!

This is the nicest hotel in the Lido beach area in Sarasota in my opinion and I looked at a lot of them. Worth the extra $$. They upgraded my groom and I to a junior suite for free!

My wedding was spectacular. I live in Colorado so I was a bit worried about it all coming together as it was planned in my head however the Lido Beach Resort staff was on top of it all and extremely helpful with all my questions. They have done this many times before and were excellent and making sure everything went smoothly. The food was great, the staff was friendly and caring, and everyone was very accomodating. We had quite a bit of guests from out of town and everyone has said they loved the accomodations as well as the ceremony/reception. Thanks for making our day so special.

overall, everything was fabuloius, the food, the service, and professionalizm, i do have a few complaints, it was 85 degrees in my hallway the whole day of my wedding, and i asked numerous times for it 2 b taken care of, 2 no avail. i also asked 4 the cocktail hour not 2 start before we came into the room, because i would have liked 2 sample few goodies, i was assured my table would have a plate of our own 2 sample from, that never happened, and my only other complaint was, when it was time 2 cut the cake, there was no one ther 2 assist us. oh, 1 more thing , nothing 2 do with the event, but, they really need 2 do something with the adult pool, it was quite dirty 4 such a beautuful place.

Lauren Thompson was great! Fast to respond to information that you needed. Beautiful grounds and rooms! They set everything up beautifully and even packaged everything that was left behind for us! Service was very friendly and attentive!

Some charges that we didn't quite expect like a service charge on the alcohol along with a bartender fee, as well as a service charge on the room rentals! Bartender insisted on a tip jar which was unnecessary considering his tip (with the service chare and bartender fee was well over $1500)!

Overall everything was beautiful!
