Reviewed July 2, 2012

This hotel had everything and more, we stayed for 7 nights in a 1 bedroomed apartment and I have to say the apartments had everything you would need and well presented too. The hotel has tried to stay in the Italian mode with the decor so it maybe a little off putting for some who may expect a modern high rise building but it had everything a hotel would provide. The bikes were available free and a shuttle bus would take you anywhere within 2 mile radius and the apartments were cleaned daily and a full kitchen clean if wanted. All the staff were friendly and the hotel was a pleasant 10min walk into the centre of Naples where you had all the fine restaurants. I would recommend Pazzo's Italian for a fantastic meal and the Irish Bar next door to the Inn on the Fifth is the place to go on a week-end where live music is on. The beach is a 15min walk from the hotel or take the bikes, the hotel will provide beach towels for you and bike locks. Will definatley recommend this hotel in the future, just shame about the weather we had Tropical Debbie with us the whole time so never saw the sun but it was still warm.

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor as they are a little lighter away from the palm trees.

I reserved a 2 night stay at Bellasera on Snique Away for a girls weekend. Upon arriving we were pleasantly surprised with the beauty of the hotel. The Tuscan style & beautiful architectural touches felt like a place in Tuscany. We arrived early & our room was ready. The room was a one bedroom suite on the first floor facing the back of the hotel. The room was very spacious, clean & beautifully decorated. A fully equipped kitchen with granite counters, full size refrigerator with ice-maker, stove-top/oven, micro-wave etc & a formal dining room adjacent to the kitchen. There is also a countertop breakfast bar with barstools. The living area has a sofa, chair & a flat-screen tv overlooking a screened-in patio with table & chairs. The bedroom is on the small side but with plenty of storage. The bathroom is spacious & is accessible through either the living area or bedroom. We were very impressed with how quiet the rooms were to outside noise. The pool area is located towards the middle of the grounds behind the lobby & restaurant. The pool is saltwater, medium sized with a beautiful fountain & vines. The first-come free cabanas are nice when the sun gets to hot. The Spa (by appointment only) & Gym are located upstairs near the pool. All amenities are conveniently accessible from anywhere in the hotel. The hotel is not on the beach but a free shuttle will take you anywhere in a 3 mile radius. They also offer bikes & helmets for free with a 3 hour limit. The parking at the hotel is free as well. Our favorite part of the hotel was the location. Walking distance to 5th Ave shops & very delicious restaurants. There is also Wynn's Family Market a couple blocks away. This grocer has everything you need & also have really great ready made food as well. All areas & beaches are easy to find & parking was not a hassle at all. We did unfortunately have a few issues with the hotel. On our first day there we immediately went to the pool to eat & lounge. After a while we realized there wasn't any pool service from the restaurant. I went into the restaurant & got menus. The server came out soon after & took our orders. The food was good, server was nice & made a fantastic Mojito. The next day, same thing, no pool service. The restaurant was very slow so I could not understand this. Why are they missing out on a great money & customer service opportunity? Then on our first night there while getting prepared for the evening we realized our shower head was hand-held & unmountable. After I called maintenance & started looking around I realized they put us in a handicapped room. Maintenance acted as if he had never seen this shower before & had our room changed immediately to the 3rd floor. When we got to the 3rd floor the keys did not work so I went back to the front & had them re-made. Again key wasn't working, called maintenance & right before he arrived it worked. Needless to say he acted annoyed. The hotel was not full & I feel handicap rooms should be tagged in their systems & reserved for those in need. The hotel would probably be better suited for families although it could be relaxing & romantic for couples if kids were better behaved at the pool. Naples is a beautiful, quiet, relaxing area but many businesses open late, have limited hours or are closed all together. This time of year is not resident season as many go to their summer homes.

we recently stayed at Bellasera after a hectic week in South Beach. We were looking for a place to stay that was totally relaxed so we could re-charge our batteries before heading back to work and this hotel delivered on all fronts.
The accommodation was beautiful - Tuscan Style. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which was perfect and kitchen was kitted out to a high spec.
The location of Hotel Bellasera is fantastic. You only have a 5 minute walk to 5th Avenue where you can find some fabulous restaurants.
The beach is only a 5 minute shuttle from the hotel (complimentary shuttle provided by the hotel) and it is truly stunning.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who fancies an unwinding and relaxing trip. We stayed for 1 week and we are already looking into returning next year for longer!

We only stayed here for one night, but we stayed in a three-bedroom suite (I got an excellent advance purchase rate direct with the hotel) and we were very comfortable in our very spacious and immaculately clean ground (first) floor suite with enclosed patio. We also had room service, which was very good value. We would be happy to stay again - and would highly recommend for a longer stay.

We usually stay on the east coast of Florida but have enjoyed the Clearwater area in the past. Our expectations for Naples and the hotel were fully met. My husband and I found the staff at Bellasera very professional and accomodating. We stayed five nights and would have liked to stay longer. We were upgraded to a two bedroom suite and found everything we needed there, down to detergent every day for the washer. We were on a quest to be frugal this time around and cooked almost every meal in the kitchen in our room. It was fully stocked, though I didn't like the coffee maker and the coffee it produced at all.
Patty and Larry at the front desk were helpful on the phone before our arrival and even more so once checked in. We had a lot of luggage and made the good choice of having Larry help us to our room. He is a fount of practical information on the area, the best beach, and where to park.
We did have a small problem with the room because there was a very annoying, constant drone type noise that kept me awake at night and eventually was too much to bear in the daytime, though we weren't in the room that often. I finally called the front desk early in the morning after our third night. They talked to maintenance and called me back saying that there was a known problem with an exhaust fan in the kitchen that would not turn off as it should have. They said they didn't realize the noise penetrated into our room. We were offered a different room and though really a pain to pack up, move all of our luggage and considerable food supply, the new room was sweet relief.
It was very hot while were there so the pool did not appeal. We chose the beach instead (rented chairs and umbrella from hotel) and enjoyed a very nice breeze.
We visited the farmers' market in the Tommy Bahama parking lot and stocked up on fresh vegetables, and then went to their store for Capt Kirk's Sone Crabs at 629 8th Street. I highly recommend this place if you love fresh fish and are cooking in. The advice and the fish were right on. I miss it so much back here in PA.
Considering the size of the room, cleanliness, location, free parking and wifi, helpful staff, it was a very good value and we look forward to staying at Bellasera again.

Room Tip: Don't be shy asking for a room upgrade if occupancy is low.

We love staying here and every thing about Naples.
Stayed here for three nights wished we could have stayed longer.
It,s a home from home with everything that you need.
Try the sunset cruise, then go the the riverwalk restaraunt, both at Tin City.
The hotel free shuttle bus provides excellent free transport, just call the hotel reception.
The only slight downside was the bar closed some nights at 9.45pm and the music at the pool got on my nerves; although to be fair the music was switched off for the day when I mentioned it. Neither of these 2 details would stop me from recomending the Bellasera. We look forward to staying here again
