The Naples Bay Resort is located close to the 5th Avenue Shopping and Dining district. While the location is close to shopping and dining, it is a bit of a walk, so you may chose to make the short drive. It has two geographic sites. A resort site which seems to have a residential / condo component to it and includes a full resort pool, etc., and a more traditional hotel which includes studio and 1 Bedroom units surrounding a marina area. This review is for the hotel portion.
As with other reviewers, we have only good things to say about the staff. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The check in process was fast, the valet was quick and friendly. It was a little walk from the check in desk to the room which was located at the far end of the 2nd hotel building. A small portion of the walk was outdoors, but the grounds are nicely landscaped and the walk not unpleasant. There is the option of valet of self parking both included in the resort fee and located close to the check in desk.
The room was a one bedroom unit with a full kitchen and 2 baths. Very nicely appointed with neutral yet attractive furnishings, and quality tile and bath fixtures. There was a nice balcony with doors from the living room and the bedroom, which had great views of the marina. The rooms have plenty of outlets, closet space, ceiling fans, and are well lit. TVs in the room appeared to be smaller 32 inch flat screens, but were sufficient and good quality. There was a Bose system in the living room as well. Kitchen was clean and modern with all needed utensils. Bath was modern with full glass shower and separate tub. Bath was nicely laid out to offer essentially a two bath layout that could be opened into one large bath and included a closet with a washer/dryer in it. No real hallway noise and only slight noise from an adjoining room. The Marina was also relatively quiet and scenic.
Breakfast is available in the yacht club located in the second building near the small hotel pool. The larger resort hotel is across the street and can be walked to or visited via the hotel shuttle. There is a Bonefish Grill and an Asian Fusion restaurant in the hotel section, but no room service. Odd, because the room phones have a button for room service, and the room guide has a section for in-room dining (but no menu behind it - just a list of available wines).
I would not let the lack of room service deter me from staying here. The rooms, grounds and staff are all superb and well worth the stay.
There are some nice boutiques and a two restaurants on the first floor level facing the Marina
