Pros:The pool and beach facility at Lido is perfect
9,0 Wonderful
Pros:Staff is excellent. Very nice hotel.
8,3 Very Good
Pros:I liked the amenities and the location of the Resort.
Cons:The beds sucked.. I stay in 4 and 5 star hotels only and for a Ritz the beds sucked, the sheets were not soft... and I always forget that the rate is inexpensive because they charge you mandatory resort fees per night at check out. Needless to say valet is $24 per day. I feel like I am flying on commercial airlines with the nickel and dimming. Just increase the price and make it all inclusive.
