I've been visiting the Lido Beach Resort for 15 years and this is the first time I've ever had a bad experience. The Tiki Bar is the biggest problem. Poor drinks and even worse service. These guys don't want to be there. Especially Daniel. He was angry all weekend and made us very uncomfortable.
When we decided to have drinks on Saturday Daniel wasn't looking at the cup as he poured the rum and it went all outside the cup. Very little made it into the cup. He made me a virgin Pina Colada. When I asked for the rum that was supposed to go in it he yelled at me that "There's plenty of rum in that drink!" There was a minuscule amount. Later, of course, we couldn't get served so we just left. Someone needs to train the bartenders in hospitality. The stairways were dirtier than normal. A used band aid was on the steps in the stairwell of the original building for five days straight. Those stairs need to be cleaned every day. The cleanliness and especially the service needs to be greatly improved. I'm looking to stay somewhere else next season and as a long time customer, that's disappointing.
