I found this resort and recommended it to friends for their 25th anniversary. They were there at the same time my husband and I were vacationing elsewhere in the state. They raved about it and loved it so much that we cut short our stay on the Atlantic Coast and moved to spend the balance of our vacation at this property. From the minute we walked in the door we loved it. It's visually stunning and impeccably manicured.
Every staff member was friendly, warm, inviting, and went out of their way to be helpful. My husband and I are hooked on staying at suite/condo type facilities when we do extended stays so our one bedroom suite fit the bill perfectly. We had a spacious balcony with a canal view.
I never thought I would rave about a bathroom, but this one was one of the plushest and definitely the most spacious I've ever seen in a one bedroom unit. It has a stand alone shower, in addition to a full tub (also with a shower). There are two separate sinks and two separate toilets. There is also a full sized stackable washer/dryer.
It's just over a mile drive to the beach and there is plentiful parking on all the beach access roads. We are already thinking ahead to our next visit to Naples during which we will definitely choose Naples Bay Resort for our accomodations.
The only constructive criticism I have is that they should disclose the resort fees up front on the phone at the time of booking. The agent with whom I booked neglected to mention it, and while I was fine with the charge, I would have liked to have known this BEFORE booking. The information DOES appear on the confirmation invoice that is emailed after booking, but at that point, you've already paid a deposit and obligated yourself for the stay.
This was not and will not be a dealbreaker for me---just a helpful hint so that customers don't get surprised by unexpected fees AFTER booking.
Overall --- I loved it and can't wait to return.
