We initially booked a room for 3 nights at Bellasera and 2 nights at the Ritz-Carlton. The room at Bellasera was dark and the furniture was out-of-date. After looking at other hotels, we decided to switch to a 3rd floor one-bedroom suite at Naples Bay Resort for approximately the same price as we had been paying at Bellasera. It was infinitely better -- the room was large and modern. The view over the marina was spectacular, and sunny. The pool complex was fantastic and all of the staff were friendly and helpful.
We had reservations for our 4th and 5th nights at the Ritz-Carlton. We had a great discount price at the Ritz so it was actually considerably less expensive than Naples Bay. Although we could not fault the Ritz with anything in particular, it was not a fun place to go for vacation. It would be a very good hotel for a business meeting (and we have been to many top business hotels), but it was far too large and crowded (even though its occupancy was far below capacity) for a relaxing, fun vacation. So, after our first night at the Ritz, we checked out and came back to Naples Bay for our last -- and most relaxing day.
When we come back to Naples (which we certainly will), we will definitely stay at Naples Bay.
