The Lido Key Tiki Bar here, right on the beach, is one of our afternoon favorites!

The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota was constructed in 2001 on the spot where Sarasota's first luxury hotel, Hotel Vernona, stood for some eighty years. The Vernona was the finest hotel in Sarasota during it's hayday, and now the Ritz-Carlton, occupying the same property, is doing in the 21st century what the Vernona did for most of the 20th.

My parents used to stay here when they would come visit me when I was a student at Ringling and they LOVED this place. I'd even stay with them sometimes to enjoy the private beach and great food. Definitely a good spot to go if you want to get spoiled!
