... while watching the moon for signs of the space shuttle we had seen lift off earlier that day. Maybe even my best memory was when I crashed into the tree while playing Pickle and my grandpa told me I had a hole in my lip. For some reason my family always thought it was funny to watch me become hysterical.
In the end I don’t feel guilty to have the privilege of being left behind a place filled with the ghosts of my grandparents ...
... Kathe’s restaurant. It was a full size statue of a fisherman pulling in fish netting. It served as a memorial to the fishermen of Cortez and also the veterans of this diminutive fishing village. Behind the statue lay a historical marker adorned with the history of Cortez. After reading the sign I walked further down the road to the U.S. Coast Guard’s gates and peered through to catch a glimpse of the bay, which seemed to be busy with ...
... Amy, Ben, Margie and Tom, Cari, Rick and Karen, all gathered at the house for a reunion in a belated celebration of Father's Day. Rick and Karen had been in Europe during the same period as us, but on a cruise of the Mediterranean. It was fun to compare notes. We were even lucky to have a visit from Barb's cousin, and his wife, who we hadn't seen in years.

After the old house it was time to head for the theater. We saw the play" Other Desert Cities".

... s is owned and operated by Corey Billie, a native Seminole who grew up in the Glades. It was a gorgeous 75 degree sunny day, perfect for a 35 mph ride over the scenic waterways. We cruised through marshlands, under mangrove tunnels and alongside alligators, well actually only three of them. One of them we got right next to, its head was only about 6 inches from the side of the boat, completely uninterested in us. It was pretty intense being that close to a 10 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lido Beach Resort Sarasota
Service was Awful
After spending an afternoon by the pool and gulf, we returned to our room to get ready for dinner and at 5:00 p.m., it was still not cleaned. The on-site restaraunt had very rude waitstaff - after two seperate problems, we ate offsite. The hotel was beautiful, but the service was awful - we won't return to this hotel.
A Better Hotel
I stayed at the Radisson on Lido and it was a better experience than the one I had at the Helmsley Hotel on Lido. At the Radisson I was first given a room on the first floor facing the beach-but it was right smack in the middle of everything-like the pool and bar area. Way too much noise. I went to the front desk and they upgraded me to a beachfront room on the 3rd floor of the newer building-much better!
They were very nice about it. I suggest if you stay on Lido Beach that you stay at the Radisson. Christoper's the main dining room is an okay ( I think other places in Sarasota may be better) place to eat-the Ceasar salad made table side is great. The pools are great at the hotel-very warm. I will go back to this hotel again. I will not go back to the Helmsley ever.
A wonderful hotel on a beautiful beach. The staff were efficient and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. My only regret is that I could only stay one night.
My husband and I spent 3 nights at the resort for my birthday (leaving our 2 sons at home with the grandparents). It was a great experience.

the STORTON FAMILY ENGLAND
We stayed at the Radisson Lido Beach in late Sept. '03 and thought it was just great. We were on the 7th floor in the tower. We opened the door to the room and looked through the sliding door on the opposite side of the room and all you could see was ocean. The sunsets were spectacular from the balcony. The room was really nice and clean. The mini kitchen (frig, microwave, dishes, utensils, etc.) was very handy.
Awesome, Super Great, The best!!!
My Husband and I stayed at the Radission, at Lido Beach Sarasoto. It was the very best experience we have ever had. The price was great, The service was unbelievable they waited on you hand and foot. Which we were not use to at all. We felt very special like movie stars, if you can imagine? You have to see this place to believe it. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
Beautiful, relaxing, clean!!!
Wonderful resort, location is great - right on the beach and close to shopping. Rooms and breezeways are very well kept. Will be going back soon. Food is also good.
My husband and I stayed here and we will definitely be coming back.
Great Place to Stay!
Very pleased with hotel and location. Accommodations (South Tower) and beach were both excellent. Staff exceptionally nice. Property very clean and food was great. BEACH WAS FABULOUS!
