“Mellow, high-quality value - exceeded our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2011

My wife and I booked BellaSera primarily on the strength of the TripAdvisor recs, but we were prepared for . . . well, a more pedestrian experience than the glowing reviews would have indicated. We stay primarily at fancier hotels, and the fact that this was an all-suite place made us think, "Timeshare. Well, it'll probably be just fine. It's certainly inexpensive."

Actually, it's very nice. The two-bedroom suite we got was very well kept and felt a lot like an upscale residence - not a fancy one, but a comfortably upscale one. Decent carpet and furnishings, granite countertops throughout, nicer quality tile in a lot of areas. It was roomier than we expected, it was very quiet, and it was superbly comfortable with the living room and screened lanai. The kitchen has all the basics, and the hotel staff is unobtrusive, gracious and quietly professional - everything is done right without anything needing to be requested. (More than I would have expected, actually - we tipped well, but housekeeping did our dishes every day, which is a whole lot more than I ever would have thought.) Washer/drier made life easier - who'd've thought of doing laundry on vacation? Parking was easy right outside the room. My wife enjoyed the spa and the pool (which was larger than photos led me to believe, tho by no means huge), and service at the poolside restaurant was great. Wireless high-speed internet (on which I'm writing this review) is free throughout the hotel. Place felt totally safe and secure - and there's a safe in the room for valuables. We mean this in the best way - BellaSera feels like a really nice place in Mexico - except that everything works perfectly.

And the BellaSera has a terrific location. If you're in any kind of fit shape, you'll have no trouble walking to a number of great places on 5th Ave S. The hotel sits on Tamiami Trail, but somehow is insulated from road noise (at least our room was) - and the proximity to the main road makes getting to numerous restaurants (there's a heck of a lot of great food in Naples) and shopping outlets just easy as pie. The beach is an easy jog or three-minute drive away (and the bell man is happy to drive you over and pick you up in the van - also, a good number of easy-to-ride beach bikes are available for borrowing, together with locks). The location just really couldn't be better.

We came here on sort of a lark, but we're already planning our next trip back.

Room Tip: Try for lanai with a corner - cross-breeze!

We have stayed at the Bellasera Hotel many times and loved it! We live in Boca Raton and have business in Naples from time to time. We love the accommodations at Bellasera. The Zizi's is a great place to eat all three meals. The condos are lovely, and if we don't feel like going anywhere for an evening, we're happy hanging out at our home away from home. We highly recommend Bellasera.

Everything about our stay at Bellasera was truly fantastic. From the way individual members of staff told us congratulations on our marriage, to the complimentary sparkling wine and card that we were sent from the hotel, they truly made us feel like we were their most important guests. This was without a doubt the best hotel we stayed in whilst in Florida. Our room was lovely, and we really appreciated being on the corner with our huge balcony and the jacuzzi with windows allowing you to look out to the main room. My wife has already started planning our next trip to Naples and we will be certain to return to the Bellasera.

The Bellasera Hotel is a wonderful hotel sort of tucked away from the Beach. While the location is tolerable to walk or drive, it is not very close to the beach. The rooms were immaculate, and it felt like home with a full kitchen, dining room and living room separate from the bedroom (1 bedroom). We had never been to Naples before and this hotel was great in terms of getting the initial feel of the area. The only problem is that the pipes in the condo (104) banged after each toilet flush and in the wee hours of the morning of our last stay, someone was washing clothes and the banging pipes was disturbing. We spent very little time in our place so this was tolerable.

This was my first visit to Naples and I spent some time reviewing the hotels to make sure I chose the right place. I read the reviews on Tripadvisor and booked the Bellasera. It was a great choice and helped to make our stay really memorable. The hotel is great for a number of reasons. Location - walking distance to 5th Avenue, Tin City and a hotel shuttle will take you up to 3 miles. Staff - excellent and really make you feel welcome. Accomodation - I stayed in a one bedroom suite which was very comfortable and had great kitchen facilities. The suite was well equipped and very clean. In addition there is free parking. The hotel is the right size to ensure personal service and we quickly felt 'at home'. Hoping to go back next year.

We were very pleased with our accommodations, the beautiful pool, and the restaurant where we had a choice of indoor or outdoor dining. We also enjoyed lunches while at the pool. Who could ask for more! but we had excellent daily maid service and a morning paper delivered to our room.
The hotel Van was available to take us to various destinations within a 3 mile radius and since the hotel was within walking distance to the 5th avenue shops and restaurants we did not have to rent a car.
The friendly and helpful staff made our stay of 3 months perfect, and we are planning to return next year.

Room Tip: We advise making reservations well in advance.

Having stayed in Naples numerous times I was more than pleased to find the Bellasera Hotel! The hotel is conveniently located to shopping and dining and offers excellent customer service. They were more than happy to arrange dinner reservations, golfing, and provide complimentary shuttle service. The service at the hotel was exceptional as they responded quickly to any requests.
