We stayed in a Hotel Bayside King Room which overlooked the beautiful bay and boats on the second floor.
The condo style hotel was fab and we loved our room. I’m guessing it was one of the more traditionally decorated rooms but it had everything we needed and was clean.
The balcony was a big plus – we spent lots of time watching the world go by and playing cards and sipping wine whilst it was raining!
The walk to 5th avenue was 10-15mins max – we enjoyed the Thai restaurant at the beginning of the main walk and then a lovely small Italian restaurant much further along.
The walk to the beach was about 15mins. The sunset from the pier was a must – the fishermen, dolphins and birds with a spectacular sunset made for some great photos. We didn’t get to spend any time on the beach itself but it looked lovely and uncrowded. A past review complained about parking – it was so quiet when we were there at the end of May this would definitely not have been an issue (in fact the whole of Naples was much quieter than I was expecting).
One rainy afternoon we took a drive to the Silverspot Cinema (20 mins north) – which I would recommend for its very comfy large leather seats!
I would stay here again if I was in the area, however don’t think I would ever stay in Naples again unless we were just passing through.
