We usually stay on the east coast of Florida but have enjoyed the Clearwater area in the past. Our expectations for Naples and the hotel were fully met. My husband and I found the staff at Bellasera very professional and accomodating. We stayed five nights and would have liked to stay longer. We were upgraded to a two bedroom suite and found everything we needed there, down to detergent every day for the washer. We were on a quest to be frugal this time around and cooked almost every meal in the kitchen in our room. It was fully stocked, though I didn't like the coffee maker and the coffee it produced at all.
Patty and Larry at the front desk were helpful on the phone before our arrival and even more so once checked in. We had a lot of luggage and made the good choice of having Larry help us to our room. He is a fount of practical information on the area, the best beach, and where to park.
We did have a small problem with the room because there was a very annoying, constant drone type noise that kept me awake at night and eventually was too much to bear in the daytime, though we weren't in the room that often. I finally called the front desk early in the morning after our third night. They talked to maintenance and called me back saying that there was a known problem with an exhaust fan in the kitchen that would not turn off as it should have. They said they didn't realize the noise penetrated into our room. We were offered a different room and though really a pain to pack up, move all of our luggage and considerable food supply, the new room was sweet relief.
It was very hot while were there so the pool did not appeal. We chose the beach instead (rented chairs and umbrella from hotel) and enjoyed a very nice breeze.
We visited the farmers' market in the Tommy Bahama parking lot and stocked up on fresh vegetables, and then went to their store for Capt Kirk's Sone Crabs at 629 8th Street. I highly recommend this place if you love fresh fish and are cooking in. The advice and the fish were right on. I miss it so much back here in PA.
Considering the size of the room, cleanliness, location, free parking and wifi, helpful staff, it was a very good value and we look forward to staying at Bellasera again.
