Sandcastle Resort at Lido Beach Reviews (5)

2/13/2014 - Very comfortable and right on the beach. Breakfast is great and service was excellent.
- Bill (Simsbury, CT)

1/27/2014 - Getting a little dated, but clean and friendly staff.
- Jeff (Chatham, CANADA)

1/15/2014 - Helmsley is an older beach resort but still very clean! Our gulf view was beautiful. We were celebrating a birthday the night we stayed. The staff sent a complementary bottle of champagne in our room. It left a very good impression!
- (golfer name not known)

3/22/2013 - Nice place. Very nice and accommodating staff. Nice outside bar staff, good food, on premises gift shop for misc. items and nothing beats being on the beach! OH yeah, and a private car shuttle into town.
- Don (Cincinnati, OH)

3/8/2013 - While the outside of this resort looks like something built in the 60's, inside the rooms were completely redone and were very nice. Location is fantastic, best pina colada's I had the whole week in Florida came from their bar.
- Sue (Sparks, MD)
