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.

First review post covid. What a hidden gem along Gulf Coast road. We missed it first time and turned around and said thank goodness. No towers here. Old school Florida motel. Rooms all facing side to ocean. Nice patio outside room. Rooms spacious. We had two queens. Room enough for little dinning table big enough bath refrig microwave and countertop stove. Walk downstairs and at beach. Special bonus was the Turtle Club restaurant is attached. Great food and drinks. Reserve early.

Stayed here on a girls trip and had an absolutely wonderful experience. The price was fair for having beach access just steps away. It was a busy time so ended up in one of their Deluxe Condos (10) across the street. So much room for 2 people but we loved having two separate rooms and bathrooms. We ate out every meal so never used kitchen much, but lived out on the screened in porch when we weren't on the beach, dining or touring Naples. Condo was nicely updated and well-appointed with everything we needed. We needn't need maid service for just 4 nights, but they replenished anything we needed upon request. The entire resort staff was very helpful and the restaurant manager even got us reservations at The Turtle Club when none were available online. We must have eaten at this restaurant 5 times - mostly lunch since it is first come first serve and our sunset dinner was the best we had in Naples. You can't leave town without a meal at The Turtle Club. The guys manning the towels, beach chairs and umbrellas were also very friendly and eager to assist in any way. This is a quaint resort that ticks off all the boxes! Don't hesitate to give it a try.

Stayed on top floor, overlooking the restaurant, and front/center for sunsets. Really enjoyed our 2 week stay, and having a great dining option right there is a real bonus. Fun to see the crowds show up for dinner each night too! We complained about the beds not being so great and they changed all the beds in the hotel! Just coincidence, they planned to anyway, but that was great. One ding, all beds are queen only, bedrooms are on the small side.
