Just booked for October ! La Playa Beach Resort

Super excited! Just booked to return to Florida again this year. Three days in Orlando and 11 nights at La Playa Beach Resort, Naples. Has anyone got any tips or advice staying at this hotel and the surrounding area?

We have never been so south as this, so need to learn a lot before we head off!

La Playa is located close to Mercato Shoppes with shopping, Silverspot Movies and about 20 restaurants.

We absolutely love La Playa Beach resort and have stayed there several times ("I'm jealous of your 11 nights!) It is on the same road as the Ritz Carlton resort. The stretch of beach is beautiful and fairly private around the La Playa . They put out the loungers for you and they have flags you can raise on them for beach or pool service for drinks or small meals. They also usually serve sorbet beach or poolside in the afternoon. The resort is beautiful and very tropical in the landscaping. There aren't too many children so it to me was much quieter than the Ritz Carlton. The lobby even smells like coconut! The rooms are large with a very nice size balcony. We've stayed in all buildings from beach to tower to bayside and liked them all.The spa is small but the treatments were nice and the gym overlooked the pool area so it made working out pleasant. The restaurant Baleen is very good and we especially enjoyed dining every morning on the patio looking at the wonderful beach view. The neighboorhood is mostly residential and pleasant to walk or bike ride. There is a strip mall with a large grocery store down the street but I'd definitely recommend having a car to access downtown old Naples with the fabulous shops along 5th Ave and 3rd st. Let me know if you have any other questions, the staff was also fantastic and very accomodating,esp. the valets. Enjo your trip!

Thanks Suzen

We are supposed to be guarantee beachfront room upgrades with Virgin, but just in case it's good to know that all the other rooms are as good. What are the availability of the beach loungers each day, are you guaranteed access to one each day?

We have a car so won't miss out on the shopping in old Naples, and we have to drive from Orlando first anyway so will be looking forward to the 11 days of relaxation.

We never had a problem securing beach loungers, they set them up every day. Also,we didn't encounter much of the whole pool lounge reserving that you hear about so much at other resorts. We usually would go to the beach in the morning then pool in the afternoon and were always able to find a spot.

If you're looking for restaurants you can walk to I can recommend Buzz's lighthouse for casual fish and chips looking over the lagoon and Turtle Club for a sunset dinner or lovely lunch. We've always had to book well in advance to get into Turtle Club but you just turn up and wait at Buzz's.

We've been traveling to Naples for several years and just recently purchased property to build our dream home in one of the new communities. However, we are visiting in October and plan on staying at La Playa for a few days (one of my favorite resorts). Does anyone have any information on the "Double Resort View" room. It's located in one of the buildings across the street from the beach. (how are the rooms, location, access to the beach, view, etc.) Thanking you in advance for your replies.
