Reviewed December 22, 2012

After reading all the luxury hotel reviews in Naples, we decided on LaPlaya and definitely made the right decision; the only luxury hotel directly on the beach. From the moment we walked thru the doors into the welcoming atmosphere and beautiful lobby area we knew this was going to be a perfect place. We stayed in the main tower and had a wonderful suite on the 15th floor. Our balcony was huge and we felt like we were on the water. When we weren't on the beach we were on the balcony reading a book, drinking a glass of wine and just soaking up the fabulous vistas!! The Baleen restaurant, on property, has great food and you can dine inside or the outside area is just spectacularly beautiful. The entire staff was pleasant and went out of their way to make sure we were completely happy. It was the perfect three night getaway. We can't wait to return to LaPlaya !!

Room Tip: Request main tower on a high floor, center of building.

Spent 4 nights at La Playa and had a great time. Service is excellent (although come with a bunch of singles as you'll feel like tipping many people). It's my first time seeing the gulf coast in Florida and it is beautiful - calm/clear waters and the sand is white/powdery/very fine/well kept.

If you're coming to naples - I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

Balcony is a great place to have breakfast/room service and enjoy the great view.

One thing that is a bit silly is that they have cabanas for rent at the pool. These should be free if the pool is empty/not near capacity.

Also - 20% service charge is forced on all bills at the beach bar - I get it if they're making a drink, but it is a bit over priced to spend ~$10 for 2 bottles of dasani water after tax/tip.

Thank you for choosing LaPlaya for your first trip to Florida’s Gulf Coast! We’re pleased that you had an all-around enjoyable visit, and thank you for commenting on both our beautiful location and the excellent service of our staff. And, most of all, thank you for your recommendation! It really does mean a lot to us – and is a vital part of our success.

I am sorry for any disappointment with the Tiki Bar gratuity. Some of our outlets, such as the Tiki Bar, do add an automatic gratuity on to all transactions – which in your case did also affect the bottled water purchase.

Thank you again for your visit and for sharing your experience! We hope to be of service on your next visit to Naples. If I may be of assistance with any aspect of a future visit, feel free to contact me directly.

The LaPlaya Hotel is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff were FABULOUS, location TREMENDOUS, and the service WONDERFUL. I have nothing but good things to say about LaPlaya....what a pleasure it was to have the time at this great establishment....I am actively recommending LaPlaya to my business and personal contacts and plan to revisit as often as I am able.

The hotel has a wonderful location and a very lovely private beach. At no time does the beach feel crowded, even though there were a lot of people on it. The guys who set up your umbrella and chairs are awesome! They came by once in a while to adjust or move the umbrella as the sun had shifted -very considerate! The pools and the landscaping are very nice. The rooms are well decorated and very clean. There is some sign of wear and tear though: the drapes in our rooms were pretty yellow and needed a good cleaning. The bathroom is nice with a good layout of mirrors and white marble -the shower rods are a bit rusty but again the sea air can damage these things pretty quickly. Saw a couple of ants in the bathroom and a spider (very tiny one) on my shirt in the closet -yuck! The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Loved the decor in the reception.

My boyfriend and I flew down to Naples for a relaxing vacay this past August and La Playa provided EXACTLY that! As soon as we got there we knew we made a great choice. The staff was the most accommodating group of people I have ever encountered, the food was great, the DRINKS by the pool? Outstanding! They let you order food and drinks to your spot on the beach, AND a Happy Hour of $5 Margaritas and Mojitos from 5-8pm everyday, you can't ask for more! The room was lovely, the other patrons staying at the hotel were very respectful of one another. The food at the hotel's restaurant Baleen was SO good, we had breakfast there twice. (The can also set up a table for two for dinner on the sand!)

Sea Turtles are one of my favorite animals and La Playa is affiliated with the Sea Turtle Conservancy. You are not allowed to touch the nests, they ask you to close your curtains at 9pm as to not disturb the nesting process (which usually goes on between April & October) and they give out pamphlets w/ a sea turtle pin upon arrival. If you're lucky you may be able to see some turtles nest from your balcony (only in the dark, of course!) On our last day, we DID NOT want to leave! We ended our trip saying we were certainly coming back to La Playa for another vacation!

Room Tip: If you can, get a room facing the Gulf. We watched a lightning storm out at sea from our balcony our...

Stayed here in December for two nights as part of a tour of Florida. You couldn't ask for a better place. Everything is perfect from the moment you drive up:
- friendly and efficient valet service
- tasteful, bright and clean reception
- quick and super friendly check in
- we had a room in the main tower on the 8th floor. Clean, classy and beautiful
- amazing uninterrupted views of the Gulf with what is undoubtedly one of the best beaches in the world
- great pool area with easy access to the amazing beach. Outstanding service on the beach with towels, loungers and umbrellas. They even have a flag to call for drinks and food. Made use of the jet skis too just to cool down
- easy access and great concierge service recommending some of the best food I've ever tasted worldwide
- reasonable rates for a hotel which really should be in the league of 'leading hotels of the world.'
Yes it really is that good and resolutely restores my faith that America still has it and knows how to do the whole package!

Will thoroughly recommend this place and hope to return one day. Love it.

Room Tip: Apparently the main tower is smaller, but wouldn't complain! Beautiful rooms

I just love this place. I actually have not stayed here yet but have attended parties and meet friends for drinks. The food and drinks are superb as is the service. I love the ambiance and the beach setting. It is so picturesque and laid back with a twist of Old Florida Elegance. I can't wait to make a reservation and stay with my hubby.

PS: Sit by the fire pit and dig your feet in the sand!
