My family stayed at the VBR as a quick summertime getaway. We live in Florida and have been to resorts up and down both coasts. The VBR is a laid-back, family-friendly boutique hotel on an impeccably beautiful spot of beach in Naples. They don't build like this in Florida anymore. The hotel is complimented by the outstanding Turtle Club restaurant... More

We just checked out of the VBR and it was a wonderful stay. We were a very large group and they were very accommodating to us (and our tents, music, etc). We stayed in a one bedroom, which at first glance was a bit tight, but we managed to make it work with some moving around (I wanted the pack... More

Beautiful Sunsets! Great dinner @ the restaurant with comfortable seating. Rooms were clean! I would recommend staying towards he front of the hotel. A bit noisy in the back. Went for our Anniversary and was lovely.

We can't say anything bad about our stay over July 4th week. Wonderful resort! We were concerned that being in the condo would take away from our experience of a beach vacation but the bay was a beautiful experience also and so close to the beach it felt like we were right there on the beach in a minute.

Beautiful beaches and sunsets. Nice quaint, quiet vacation. Rooms were clean and had a small kitchenette. Make sure you get a room on the beach side. The restaurant was nice but pricey and the food wasn't great....but you get to eat outside on the beach and watch the sunset if you make reservations. We found a lot of star fish... More

This was our second trip to the Vanderbilt Beach Resort. Last year, my mom and I stayed in room 39 and had such a great time, that we decided to bring more of the family (four adults and three kids total) down this year and we reserved rooms 39 and 40 for seven nights. We wanted room 51, which is... More

Not impressed with this place. Booked over the phone through work -- book many trips so one often blurs into another. Upon not seeing / receiving a confirmation and at risk of not having a place to stay, booked elsewhere. Had charge billed to my credit card. Called to figure it out. Hotel could not find reservation. Then, ultimately found... More

We are disappointed that this guest had difficulties making a reservation with us and did not actually stay at our property. It is our practice to inform all guests at the time that they make a phone reservation that they will receive a confirmation letter by email and to contact us if they do not receive it. This is to...

We originally scheduled our two week vacation to be split between the Vanderbilt Beach Resort and another place on the East Coast (5 nights and 9 nights). We have never been to Naples before so we relied on TripAdviser reviews for the VBR. Our first impression was "Wow" when we first arrived. Our room wasn't ready yet so we enjoyed... More
