We have been visiting yearly (sometimes more) since April 1998, when we moved to South Florida, and value for price is best in Fla. The rooms until the recent renovation were a bit rustic; now they're on par with others. The Gulf view from rooms is fantastic; sunsets are an event. Parking and beach chairs/towels are free. Staff is very... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in March 2014 and LOVED it. This might not be a great fit for everyone, but if the beach is the reason for your trip, this is a great option. We stayed in a gulf side room -- very reasonable price, very comfortable and completely up to date room and luxurious bathroom... More

I'd been to Naples before and stayed both in a private home and at the La Playa Resort, just down a few doors from Vanderbilt Beach Resort. Vanderbilt Beach Resort was a surprisingly affordable, yet luxurious choice of hotel for our last night in Naples. You can't get much better with the beachfront here nor with the Turtle Club Restaurant... More

Spent a week at this resort, couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. Very comfortable beds and extremely clean. Having the Turtle Club restaurant on the property was a huge bonus, amazing food!!. Would recommend for couples or for families. Beach facilities were world class!

Stayed at this hotel for five nights this past week in a gulfside suite with my husband and son. Granted it is very cost effective compared to the Ritz and La Playa, but still is not cheap and for the price we were very disappointed in the lack of amenities. The room was very very tired with stains on the... More

We wanted to be on the beach for 24 hours before leaving the beautiful warmth for the cold northeast and so happy we stayed at the Vanderbilt Resort. We were lucky our room was available to check in early (11am!) so we quickly got our things together and Sean got us set up with beach chairs and an umbrella so... More

This place was an unbelievable find. My wife and I booked a condo at VBR after we were unable to get accommodations at a nearby hotel. We figured it would be "OK" as it was on the beach. When we arrive we were greeted by the afternoon desk clerk, Dave, who became our friend. Dave is friendly and knowledgeable. He... More

We spent seven nights at the Vanderbilt in a Gulf Side Suite. The location was perfect, away from traffic, and located on the beach. From our room on the second floor we could view palm trees, pool, and the gulf. The room itself had everything we needed and we felt very much at home. We ate at the Turtle Club... More

Having eaten at the restaurant here we had no hesitation in booking a 'room'. The standard of accommodation matched the standard of the restaurant - excellent!. Would recommend to anybody without hesitation. Could not fault in anyway.
