“Great little place on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

Our family stayed the week at the Limetree and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The rooms were nice, with flat-screen TV's in both the bedroom and living rooms, which was great for my wife and I and the kids. I read a previous review about the size of the bed, and while I can obviously only comment about the one bedroom unit we were in, I can say without question it was a King size bed. We also thought the other furniture and kitchen amenities were nice.

The staff was great, the pool is well maintained, and the beach is beautiful. We had such a good time that we are considering purchasing a unit so we can return each year.

This is a great little resort located right on the beach. The property is continuously being updated including furniture, cabinets, . . . The Tuesday night entertainment and beach chair service are both great. I especially love that it is never crowded compared to a high rise property. And with the proximity to St. Armund's Circle, shopping, dining, and massages are within minutes!!!

Room Tip: The beach front units are great for watching the sunset from your deck.

First - I guess we made a mistake of taking a vacation in July when kids are out of school. Second - We exchanged our $1000 Hyatt timeshare for a $350 timeshare.

Couldn't get a beach front view because the management said so! We did settle with a partial view of the beach from our front porch which faced the pool and everyone walked by. The furniture is sooooo old, I sat down on the couch and my husband had to help me get up. There is not one good place to sit in this timeshare. The bed was suppose to be a king size bed but it wasn't (I don't care what someone says, it's not like our king size bed at home!). The bed has a soft top layer and you sink into it. One good thing is the bathroom is new with a higher toilet and a nice shower but you have to close the bathroom door in order to find the toilet paper or get into the shower?!?

I think every unit had 5 kids --- when all these kids were in the pool, well let's just say the kids took over the pool and didn't care about jumping in the pool on top of you or throwing toys, which hit you in the head. The parents are just as rude as the kids, because the parents are sitting around the pool drinking beer and talking.

We went to the beach and it was too crowded with more kids and parents not watching their kids.

This was an awful vacation for us, plus you had to drive to find a restaurant. Okay, we learned our lesson. Hopefully, this review will help someone make a better decision to pick a better place to go on a vacation.

Great location right on a fantastic white beach, situated on Lido key this is a great location for the famous Almond circle and an easy ride into downtown Sarasota. The apartments are agood size and well appointed. The pool is again a good size and there are also tennis courts and beach cruisers to borrow. The staff are very helpful. Recommended!

My Wife and I just spent two weeks in a gulf front unit here, and were very happy with resort.
The furnishings were a little tired (except for the televisions which appeared to be brand new), but the unit and the resort were spotlessly clean. The staff was both friendly and accommodating. The pool and beach areas were first rate, and the sunsets from our balcony were amazing. The place has a family atmosphere as many of the guests return year after year, and they all seem to know each other. We were quickly welcomed into the group however and had a wonderfully relaxing two weeks. The resort is a quick 15 minute walk to St Armands Circle, 10 minutes by car to Sarasota, and 15 minutes to Anna Maria

We just returned from a two week stay at the Limetree Resort on Lido Key. It was a wonderful place to stay. It offered a great location on the beach, and the condo was fully equipped with every convenience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is also a lovely pool. The Limetree is in a perfect location with a 15 minute walk to St. Armand's Circle and an even shorter walk to South Lido Park. We loved everything about this place and plan to return next year.

Room Tip: The Limetree is relatively small and is in a U-shape. All rooms face either the beach or the pool wi...
