We have been coming to VBR for over 20 years, I would guess that shows they are doing something right. We have a gulf side studio, that has everything we need. We cook many meals in our room but there is an abundance of great restaurants close at hand to include The Turtle Club. The staff and management are top... More

As I am reluctant to share a positive one for fear of making the VBR even more popular - it already seems hard enough to get dates! Traveled with family of 5 including 2 teenagers and all agreed it was absolutely wonderful. We stayed in a 2 bdrm condo in the 4-storey building across the street from the two storey... More

This was our first visit to the Vanderbilt Beach Resort and we plan to return. The front desk staff, which includes the owners, are incredibly accommodating. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the beach staff is both friendly and efficient. You can order drinks while you are relaxing on the beach and your chairs and umbrella is set up for...

The Vanderbilt is a great trip down memory lane of historical FLA hotels with all the modern conveniences. I prefer boutique type properties like this to cookie cutter modern hotels, so if you are all about the latest all new, probably not your thing. We stayed for two nights in one of the two bedroom condos on the bayside. The... More

Right off the bat I want to state that I actually give this "resort" about 3 stars. Why am I putting it in the 1-star category? I believe modern American human nature is to look at the worst first, so I hope they read this before any others! Well...here goes: There's good news and bad news, both pros and cons... More

We would like to thank this guest for his very honest and straightforward comments, especially his acknowledgement that his wife loved our property. We take guest feedback very seriously and while we are disappointed that this guest did not love his stay with us, we are happy that his spouse did. While our hotel business and property is one of...

I enjoyed a week in Naples at VBR in Jan 2015. It was one of my most enjoyable vacations to Florida. I tend to stay in places on the beach in a room with a beach view, and I am not willing to even cross a road to get to the beach. Given that outlook, it is difficult to find... More

The hotel staff are simply awesome and here is why: I was staying at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort for our annual training trip for swimming. I was playing beach volleyball when my wedding band came of my hand. As a team we tried searching around but it seemed as though all was lost. I mentioned it to the concierge at... More

I agree with past reviewers: good value and friendly service, the beach side location is superb with loungers provided, there is a small pool. The other advantage is that the turtle club restaurant and bar are right attached and make for a great sun-set dinner with good quality food and not overpriced (minor quibble: I was offered bread and butter...

What an absolute great find! I have stayed here twice in the past two months. The staff are fantastic and the rates are great for being right on the beach. They will set up your chairs and umbrella for you. The rooms are clean and great for a family.

I stayed at this hotel, due to it's proximity to the Ritz, for a conference I was attending for the next 3 days. I didn't want to spend $400 per night and found this hotel to be well-reviewed on T.A. After staying, I could see why. What a great value. I stayed on the hotel(beach) side of the resort, as... More
