“from Waldorf to Opal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel is no longer Waldorf Astoria and rightfully so. (Been here 3 times). Opal is doing some much needed room renovations, however the furniture is a mix of everything. Spacious suites though with kitchenettes (large fridge, micro oven, coffeemaker) and it seems as if balcony doors have finally been replaced. Balconies are long but only 6th and 7th floors are also wide. Avoid suite 405 (and lower) even though on oceanside you only see roofs.
Beautiful white beach, 2 lovely clean pools. If not in high season it's perfect. Otherwise it gets crowded. It has an excellent location to everything (oldtown, zoo, waterside shops, etc).

Stayed November 2014, traveled solo

1 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

major update of most rooms in hand , contractors working all hours & 7 day week. Beach not available for a few days due to heavy vehicles replacing erosion. Noisy. Unhelpful staff not interested in compensation for lack of amenities. After twice a year visits here for 20 years I am shocked and feel I have been robbed at the inflated prices. The ''new'' suites should be good but are so incomplete they are not good at all.

Room Tip: beachfront best if you can afford it

Selected this hotel because it was beach front. This is once instance where the pictures didn't do the resort justice. Very charming resort along with modern amenities incorporated. Rooms were very spacious with terrific views of gulf and pool area which became illuminated at night. Location was also great to Old Naples and 5th avenue shops and restaurants. Looking forward to a return visit ... soon!

Room Tip: Our room was in the south tower which didn't get much sun. Try to stay in the north tower as it...

Thank you for your review and for allowing us the opportunity to serve you during your recent trip to Naples. Your sentiment is correct, the images of the resort often don't do it justice. As a small boutique beachfront resort, we are often complimented on the intimacy and charm of the property. We look forward to your next visit as well….soon!

My experience at the Edgewater Beach Hotel was nothing less of exceptional! Every moment, from checking in at the lobby to relaxing on the beach, showcased the hotel's relaxing yet breathtaking atmosphere. The staff was welcoming and committed to perfecting every aspect of the guest's stay. It is centered in the heart of activity in Naples- there's even a trolley to Fifth Avenue! Oliver, Junior, and Allen at the beach displayed a great ability to cater to the guest's needs in a friendly and dedicated manner in order to make the beach experience truly memorable. It was so nice to be able to go kayaking in the ocean and eat the mouthwatering food prepared from the kitchen. The Edgewater even placed emphasis on the finishing touches that really complete vacations. Some of the moments spent at this hotel can never be recreated- the peaceful sound of the waves from the room, the warm bonfire burning in the dark, and the lights shimmering around the pool at night! I would definitely recommend this beautiful hotel to anyone!

We loved our stay at the Edgewater and created many beautiful memories there. The beach was beautiful and the views from our balcony were breathtaking. We ate breakfast several times at the restaurant and the eggs benedict was delicious. We also spent some time at the poolside bar and the service was great. The beach service was the best. We did go deep sea fishing and the commute to the dock was not long at all. The room was very spacious. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen was suitable although fridge was small. Over all we enjoyed our stay and are glad we chose to experience Naples at the Edgewater.

Room Tip: We had a beachfront balcony room on the 3rd floor and friends had the same but on the first floor. B...

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times and is a fantastic place to stay. You can relax by the sea or the pool and the Cabana Bar is fantastic and they serve superb cocktails.
The rooms are very large and provide great sleeping and lounge areas. We have stayed in the main Tower complex and the beachfront suites and although the tower suites are slightly more modern it doesn't beat the beachfront view.
When we stayed last we had breakfast included complimentary but the only downside is they now have started charging for parking, which had always been included in the rate.
I would recommend the place to couples and families as a great base to explore Naples and the surrounding areas. It is our favourite place in Florida.

Room Tip: Go for a Beachfront Suite.

First found this hotel in 1994 and have returned every year bar one. Didn't write a review after last year's visit as hotel was undergoing change the exact time we were there and it would not have been a fair review amidst the upheaval. However, this year was spectacular , congratulations to new owners ,( the hotel is now part of the Opal Collection ) . The much needed renovation is underway, and so far the improvements are all to the good. The work is almost finished so don't be put off making a booking. What renovations were going on, no way interrupted or spoiled our time there. It was our 50th wedding anniversary and the Edgewater staff pulled out all the stops to make it a perfect stay. Thank you to all the staff we already knew, Gregg and Cory at the pool bar, really great guys. A new recruit , Randi, just started at the pool bar, and restaurant bar and I'm sure she will be a great asset, a lovely girl, always smiling. The new executive chef has a great new menu, certainly recommend the restaurant and pool bar menu. Front of house staff so welcoming, and big thanks to the Manager Laura for all she did too. Can't wait to go back this time next year.
