We stayed in room #50 at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort July 22-29 and had an amazing time. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and room 50 has the best view imaginable. The room was spotless and had everything we needed. The deck overlooking the beach was perfect and everyone was very friendly and helpful. We loved having complimentary beach chairs and... More

We rented a condo on the 4th floor, room 401. Wonderful view of the Bay and partial view of the beach on the other side. Very spacious condo with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Very close to the beach. I would strongly recommend this hotel. Can't think of anything negative at all. We enjoyed our stay and can't... More

“People reception and cleaning excellent. Close to beach. Location was great. I loved the view from the screened in porch.Very nice to go in groups.You can see dolphins and quiet walk along the beach. But young people who help on the beach are not friendly and very bad treatment.

After being disappointed by the neighboring Ritz on Vanderbilt Beach, I began to visit this wonderful little family owned resort about 5 or 6 years ago. I fell in love and make plans to return every summer. It feels like home, and the charming environment just seeps in as soon as you valet the car. The location is superb and... More

We rented the deluxe condo for several days after July 4th and had a great time. The condo is very large (2 BR, 2 baths), clean, and comfortable. The full kitchen had everything we needed. The one shortcoming for older adults is that the tub and shower have no safety bar to hold onto. Apparently, they are not required in... More

I'm not a big fan of the huge monstrosities that have been built along the many beaches in Florida. I was so happy to find this very small, family-owned hotel on one of the most beautiful beaches in Naples. The price was reasonable. The service was personable and the room was comfortable. My favorite part of this hotel was the... More

We spent 3 nights here in June 2016. We had one of the original rooms on the beach side (a Gulfside Junior Suite). Very convenient to the beach, pool and restaurant. Beach chairs & an umbrella are complementary to guests (reserve one early to get a good spot). The beach is very nice and we found various sea creatures snorkeling/wading.... More

I stayed here with a friend and her 2 kids. The hotel is right on the beach and the staff is very kind. Chairs for the beach and an umbrella are included in the small resort fee and make for great beach days. The pool is steps from the beach with lots of floats for guest use. Restaurant on site...

In the past, we have visited Naples and stayed with friends . They took us to the Turtle Club which is the beautiful oceanfront restaurant located at this resort. The food and service is amazing. We always said that we would love to stay at this resort someday. So we went the first part of May. It is smaller than... More

This is the most luxurious FL property this non-luxury person has ever enjoyed! First of all, the staff is most friendly and accomodating - all the staff, from the front desk to the restaurant to the beach. Our suite was across the street from the main hotel and with 2 bdrms, 2 baths, a full kitchen, and a glorious screened... More
