My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Ritz Carlton Naples for our anniversary. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely visit again. We found the staff on all ends to be courteous, kind, and even remembered our names after the 1st day! Upon entering the lobby, I was amazed at the attention to detail, from silk draperies and exquisite furniture, to the bowl of fresh oranges and apples at the front desk.
Our room was a standard "Partial Ocean View"; I wished the room was a smidge bigger, and the only disappointment was that our bathroom, while nicely decorated and mostly marble, only had a standard tub/shower combo. I was hoping for a separate soaker tub, but I later learned they only offer that amenity in their suites. Also, the bed was extremely soft and comfortable, with a featherbed topper, 400TC linens and a down duvet.
We spent most of our time at the pool, which was just fabulous. The pool is heated, however, and was not quite refreshing in the blazing 90-degree heat. The pool staff was helpful and friendly and the waitstaff checked on us often to see if we'd care for lunch or drinks.
The only complaints I would have about the Ritz is due to the construction going on at the hotel. Our travel agent told us there was construction going on across the street, so I was surprised to see the hotel was in the process of renovating the guest rooms. The noise was somewhat disturbing, as our room was quite close to the workmen. My second concern was with the "mandatory" valet parking. We typically like to park our own car and come & go as we please, but apparently that's not an option. At $18/day, it was somewhat hard to swallow. But, all in all, we had a great time and the hotel is well deserving of it's 5-star rating, something other 5-star hotels we've been to aren't.
