... of Ito city and stay the night in a 100 year old Ryokan located in Ito (not a bad way to spend my 26th birthday). Check out this link for pictures (http://kshouse.jp/ito-e/). We won't be resting our possibly weary heads for long, however, before we hoof it over into the Shizuoka prefecture to the Uno Tea Farm to stay with our host Madoka. He and his family live in a remote area of the somewhat mountainous part of Shizuoka and for a week and a half we will ...

... inbred. I'm sorry I know it's not PC, but they really must have been. The guy had cross eyes, multiple growths on his nose and not a single tooth in his mouth. I'm not gonna lie, it was an uncomfortable conversation.
But it was made 100% nicer by our neighbours Brent and his 12 yr old daughter Yeva from Virginia. We spent two good evenings with them sharing BBQ food, chewing the fat over the campfire (we talked guns and travel, I enjoyed debating with ...
... morning we all rose early and left Cape Coral in separate cars and headed to Sarasota, Florida. Spent our last day with Don & Jean, touring The Ringling Brothers Circus Museum. If you have not seen it is a super place to go.
The Ringling museum is a remarkable legacy of circus owner John Ringling (1866-1936) and his wife, Mable (1875-1929). In 1911, they bought property in Sarasota, Florida and in 1927, ...

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 Best Yet

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!
