This hotel is one of the best resorts my family has enjoyed in the United States. The location is pristine.
This is the third time my family of four has stayed at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club, however it is the first time we've stayed during February vacation. First, if possible, it's preferable to visit the area during April vacation, when Naples isn't at maximum population and the weather is perfect. During our stay in February, traffic was heavy, reservations at local restaurants were difficult to obtain, and the weather was a mixed bag.
That being said, we were so happy to be staying at this hotel. Because of the amenities, even on the cooler, overcast days, the kids swam in the pool, while we enjoyed a leisurely lunch at the pool bar. There are two pools, a kids pool and an adult pool. The kids pools gets crowded on the weekend with locals who use the beach during the day and then wander onto the hotel property in the afternoon (or perhaps they are members of the golf club and this is part of the membership?). However, pool chairs were available most of the time. Beach chairs and tiki huts are available on the beach of an additional charge. The beach is wonderful (shares the same beach with the Ritz Carlton, Naples). Family lives nearby in Naples, and the hotel accommodated their visits to us with ease and hospitality. Our parents enjoyed the valet parking and walked onto the property with their own beach chairs and enjoyed the days with us. Such a great way to enjoy family time together.
Another new experience for us was staying in the Florida Wing, which is a two story building separate from the main building and the yellow tower, with the grassy knoll in front. It was great! The rooms appeared to be a little bit bigger then those in the main building, there was parking behind the building and there were no elevators. We felt like we were staying in a cabana on the beach - it was great. The only drawback is that the balconies are not private. Rather the building has large porch which provides the outdoor seating for the rooms. We'll probably request this building again in the future, and I understand that suites are available in this building, too.
Breakfast is served across the street in the Conference center, but there is a convenient store on location to buy yogurt, bagels or cereal for breakfast. We ate lunch on the beach and dinner off site. Old Naples is about a mile away, which is an enjoyable pedestrian experience.
We did take advantage of the Spa amenities. I enjoyed a spa pedicure and my husband had a sports stretch with a trainer. The cost was comparable to other spas I've visited.
Enjoy your stay.
