Sun. Sand. Swaying Palm Trees. And Great Service, Too. The Helmsley Sandcastle located on Lido Beach in Sarasota has a relaxing sunny resort flavor, with a storybook seaside setting on a 600 foot strand of private, natural white sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico.

Visitors will be treated to thoughtful Helmsley touches, such as a morning newspaper and a small refrigerator for chilling beverages and snacks. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the property. The pleasures of outdoor dining for both breakfast and lunch are virtually right outside your door. The recreation staff can provide personalized sailing lessons.

There's a convenient gift shop on premises and the hotel is within easy walking distance of popular St. Armands Circle, with its fine shopping and entertainment attractions.

Amenities include complimentary daily morning newspaper, two heated pools, 600 ft. of private beach, golf and tennis nearby, the Candlelight dining room and lounge, handicap facilities, shuffleboard, volleyball and ping pong, cabana, umbrellas, and bicycle rentals, complimentary beach loungers, and complimentary in room safe. Meeting facilities for groups to 225, banquets to 160, and a business center are available.
