We have experienced wonderful times at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort in the past, but we continue to be impressed with the updates in service and the facilities. We spent 2 weeks having a great time with family and friends. All staff members went out of their way to make this possible.

Vanderbilt Beach Resort is a rare bit of old-time Florida, a low-rise resort right on the beach, umbrellas and beach chairs included (the Ritz and others charge extra for this basic!), kitchenette, lounge chairs outside the room, free parking. I was frazzled and exhausted and just wanted to wake up on the beach without a lot of other people around. The staff are really friendly and helpful, the beach is pristine, and a stroll around the Ritz (one of many high-rises on either side of this little gem) drove home how much more relaxing it was to be at a small hotel without having to deal with elevators, screaming kids, snooty people, or extra charges tacked onto the bill. It's about a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Naples, the restaurant is kind of pricy, the rooms are a little old-fashioned, but there are ample grocery stores, including a Whole Foods on the way in from the airport, and the living is easy. This is how my family spent time in Florida when I was growing up in the 60's and 70's, great beach, easy living, no need to spend a fortune to feel like a million dollars. If you want the glitz and the glam, there are lots of other great place in Naples, but you don't have to pay glitz and glam prices to be on the beautiful, beautiful beach and swim in the warm Gulfstream waters!

Pure smooth sand with chairs and an umbrella to use for a small fee ,Russ was great as to accomadating our needs.we had great room service on a daily basis. the restaurants on the beach was very good as was the check in desk help etc..

Everything about our stay was great! The location is superb- right on the beach. The rooms are immaculate, the staff extremely accommodating. We can't wait to return. I think this hotel is especially good for families.
