Stayed in the hotel side for 1 night and then moved to the condominium side for the remainder of our visit. Loved the view of the lagoon and the quiet away from restaurant/beach on the condo side. Nice to have beach chairs/towels and not worry about bringing our own. Very spacious condo, would be big enough for a family of 6. Clean and very accommodating staff. Would 110% stay again!

Hotel's Favorite
I can't say enough about this wonderful resort. The rooms, service, the gorgeous views, all five stars. If you need anything, the staff is accommodating and will see to your every need. The old-world-style decor is a welcome change and makes you feel relaxed the moment you walk through the front door. I'm already making plans for a return visit.

We went to Vanderbilt beach on a Tuesday afternoon. Although it was quite busy, it felt clean and sanitary. The water was great with nice waves. I would recommend beach shoes for the water as there are a lot of small shell pieces that are sharp on your feet. Bring boogie boards and tubes. There is a place to rent boards but they were all out when we arrived. You can buy tubes, but they are $10 for something you can buy at Walmart for $3.

This was my first time vacationing in Naples so obviously my first time at the Vanderbilt. I must say that I had an absolutely wonderful stay there. I booked a junior suite and stayed in Room 46. It was on the second floor and had a partial Gulf view. The room was a very nice size, very clean, updated for a beachy hotel, and had everything you needed. There was a livong room area with couches that doubled as twin beds. The kitchen area had a large fridge, stovetop, microwave, coffeepot, and all the dishes and silverware you would need. The bedroom was small with only a queen bed but it was comfy. There was no tv in the bedroom. The bathroom seemed the most updated and had lots of space and a great shower. The A/C worked well and the room was nice and dark in the morning with the shutters closed. There were a few chairs on the balcony to sit and look at the pool or Gulf. The location is perfect. This hotel is right on the beach and it literally is just steps from the water. Watching the sunset on the beach is not only breathtaking but it is also the social event of the night! Their restaurant, The Turtle Club, has outdoor seating with tables in the sand so you can eat dinner while gazing out at the Gulf or staying til the sun sets. Although I mainly just stayed on the beach, the pool was crystal clear, clean, and had that infinity pool look to it. All of the staff here was very pleasant and helpful, especially Chris, the general manager. Besides loving the room and the beach, here are just some of the little things that stood out about this hotel: 1. The resort fee included beach chairs and umbrellas that were set up as soon as you requested them. 2. There was an automatic foot- rinsing machine by the pool to rinse off the sand. How clever! I had never seen that contraption before. 3. There is a bathroom across the street by the parking and the condos that has a full shower with towels so if you have to check out of your room but have a late flight, you can still use the beach all day and have a place to shower and freshen up. I extended my stay during my trip because I liked this place so much. I also plan on returning in 2 weeks to celebrate my birthday.

Nice place to stay right on the beach. Top end restaurant that you need reservations for dinner. Lunch is the best and cheapest time to go. Nice people in the office and at the beach. Overall, it is a place we go back to each year. Not super expensive but not cheap either.
