“This place is Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

I have been to the Bellasera a few times now and would rather go there then anywhere else. From the Beautiful atmosphere to the kind and welcoming staff there's no better place to stay! I do not want to forget to mention how clean it is or how great the food and drinks are!! We also really enjoyed our time at the spa. Exactly what we needed!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We have stayed at the Bellasera for the last 5 years. We have always found our accommodations to be comfortable and well appointed. We like the location, close to our favorite shopping and dining choices in "Old Naples". We have traveled extensively and have alway's been impressed with the effort's of the staff and management to make our stay special. We have found the pool area to be clean and enjoyable...someone referenced in their review " that 3 children" make the pool full...an exaggeration in my opinion...you have one of the biggest pools( Gulf of Mexico) only block's away...we are thrilled to be arriving again next week to celebrate our wedding anniversary, coupled with visiting our favorite haunts...it will be a pleasure to leave the snow and cold, and arrive to the comfort of the Bellasera!

Room Tip: We enjoy staying on the ground floor.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We stayed here for about 10 days early February. It was our second visit we had a gap of a few years as it became rather expensive and we found we could stay at a hotel on the beach for less.
The good;
Comfortable living area
Good pillows and bedding
Bathrobes
Great kitchen area with oven,microwave,dishwasher,fridge/freezer,coffee maker and kettle
Also washing machine and drier (wash powder provided)
iron and board
Balcony (screened)
In fact like having your own condo with maid service
We stayed in a one bedroom suite - just 2 of us

The not so good;

No view from suites I believe only the studio rooms have a pool view (which could be noisy)
Busy road to cross (41 - Tamiami) if you wish to walk to fifth ave or beach.
Pool area not very large and the sun disapears behind the building about 4pm this time of year.
Service is a bit erratic and indoor part of restaurant/bar area no atmosphere

There is a car park behind fifth ave which is free if you don't wish to walk to the many restaurants and shops . The hotel run a mini Bus service that we never used.
The location is very convenient just a pity no views. There is a garden courtyard between the blocks of suites with some trees which gives a little privacy to some of suites but there are no water features here. The suite balconies look across to the ones opposite.
It wasn't noisy when we were there but can become noisy at times by the
Pool depending on how many children are there and whether the parents control them.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the elevator on the top floor as they are noisy and the cleaners use them a lot.

After going down the east coast of Florida and getting some not so good places we decided to go to a place that we had been to before when we hit Naples...unfortunately, we could only stay two nights and get a regular room instead of the one bedroom suite we had before but at this point we were happy for anything. The place is superb...the staff great...the maid service was a little lacking for some reason. The one room or studio as they call it was nice but a little strange...good thing we have been together for awhile since the bathroom has this strange window above the tub that you can actually see through the cracks. If you are on the toilet and shy than it could be a problem if you were with a peeping tom. No problem for us but it could be a problem if you were with someone you did not know that well and wanted a little privacy...other than that the room was great. The location of the place is another plus.

We have stayed in a Sunstream Hotel before in Cape Coral and the Bellasera is not as good as that (Marina Village).
The Hotel is in a reasonably good location (approx 1 m from shops & beach) which is ok? if you can walk, otherwise you have to rely on the free Hotel Shuttle Service ( 3 mile radius).
We had a car, which is ok for Malls, other resorts etc but no great use in Naples as the Parking for the Beach & downtown districts is limited.

PRO's

> Heated Pool all year (81degs)
> Free bike Hire
> Shuttle Service
> Walking distance to a wide range of shops & restaurants
> Apts well equipped, coffee, washer etc.
> Overall facilities in Hotel good.


CON's

> Gym small & little equipment
> Pool busy in afternoons & people avoiding the winter shadows!
> Zizi Restaurant closed at 2pm Sunday & Monday!
> Some staff namely; Larry, Terri & Patricia were great, others couldn't be bothered particularly
> on our last day a maintenance man was jet washing the pool area all day- not great for pool users.

TIPs

> If staying for a while & you use the beach, its cheaper to buy beach chairs etc from a supermarket, rather than rent from the Hotel or at the beach.
> Utilise the free shuttle did the beach, bars, mall etc...
> ask for a room overlooking the pool area, some rooms can be dark.

This is our eighth year at Bellasera, and, once again, it did'nt disappoint. The two-bedroom unit was spotless, and we certainly appreciate the daily maid service. The bicycles delight us, as does the pool area and beautiful landscaping.

Eating breakfast out on the enclosed lanai is relaxing. Every morning we walk down to the beach, and make our way to the Naples Pier, exploring the Third Street shops and restaurants-lovely area of Naples, as is the easy walk to Fifth Avenue and Tin City. Bellasera's location cannot be beat.

The staff are all so helpful and friendly. Thank you all. Will certainly return next year. We have already reserved our stay.

Don't hestitate to visit the Bellasera. It will please.

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites. The suite is gorgeous and the master bathroom is beautiful. Kitchen is amazing. Beds are wonderful. The huge suites with great décor are the selling point!! The lanai was large, but noisy from other guests. I suppose when owners are in their suites they do as they wish as across from us they were noisy one night til around 3:00AM and started again the next day at 8:00AM. I called the front desk several times but it still continued. The "resort" is not a resort at all. However, the do not call it that, it is billed as a hotel. It has a VERY small pool which is full when more than three children arrive. The less than stellar pool area cheapens the property and the experience. It has a average restaurant (but you don't need it anyway). I am not sure I would return as I don’t think it is worth the price. You can book a hotel with much better amenities for the price point. You can walk to downtown Naples if you wish in about five to ten minutes.
