“Beautiful for a 'second honeymoon'”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Following retirement from my longtime job, I recently spent a week at this newly renovated hotel with my wife on a second honeymoon. I knew something about this hotel having stayed at the Naples RC Golf Resort in the summer of 2012 whence we had visited this RC beach hotel daily for 10 days in a row (and had a great time using their facilities with the family.) In any event, staying at the hotel with just my wife was a delight. Everything was excellent from the moment we arrived, got a wonderful welcome, and an immediate upgrade. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the renovated room was quite large, very modern, light, and airy. It was not remotely "traditional" as I had been expecting. The huge king bed was fantastic--must have cost a fortune. The special ASPREY soaps and shampoo were a treat. This is a glorious place to be if you want to be attended to and also (very much) be by the sea and on the beach. My wife and I rose at dawn daily for a one hour walk at sunrise on the beach with egrets, herons, stingrays, and even dolphins (yes!). This was followed by a superb breakfast buffet and then 12 more hours of glorious hotel, cafe, pool, beach, and bar amenities and service. The staff are well trained and never far away. Plus the hotel shops have some very stylish clothing and beachwear as well as jewellery and other merchandise, and warrant an exploration at a minimum. The only time we left the hotel grounds was to take the free RC shuttle bus to the gorgeous RC Golf Resort a few miles away! It's just the holiday I was dying to have. This may be hard to top. Rooms are extremely expensive, granted, but the hotel is unique and very lovely, with immense and very tastefully decorated public areas. Snacks, meals, drinks, etc. are generally reasonably priced. So although it costs $700 a night for a room, you can get lunch by the pool for $15-20 a person. I've started saving after this visit and already reserved for 2014!

Have stayed their a lot for work and play. First time since 45million dollar remodal. They could have spent 100 million. Suites have tub showers. 2000$ a night and tub showers "are u kidding" Very loud halls and workers are not that nice. Best beach but it was under constuction. They never mentioned it before i made the reservation. Loud at 7am. You are better off staying at the golf and using the beach or staying somewhere else. Too bad.

This property has always been and still is one of the nicest in Naples. I was happy to see that although recently renovated many features that make this resort beautiful (chandeliers, paintings, etc.) remain. Our room (Gulf Front #1018) was not overly large but was clean, bright and very comfortable. The bathroom was on the small side, but had a separate water closet, marble floors and well lighted mirrors. All the rooms around the Center Court have small balconies, with some view of the water and a view of all the other balconies. Expect to hear voices and music, since many functions are held in the Court, but it makes for a fun festive atmosphere. The beach is pristine with powder white sand. The friendly staff were spread throughout the hotel, ready and waiting to assist. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: If view is important look at the hotel map on the website. Although the rooms are not shown, I will...

From the moment you drive up to the entrance and the Valet greets you you know that the services will be fantastic. Everyone wanted to help, always with a smile, and a genuine greeting.

The Club level access at this location was perfect. The food presentations were a delight. A great chance to indulge in international cheeses and great wine. Only drawback, was that to get to the balcony, you had to wait for guess seated closest to the door to move as the chairs block the door and there dint a direct path to or fro.

The room's decor was simple and elegant. Soft powder blue walls with plush pillow top beds, almost held me captive in the room. Thank heavens, for the glorious weather that Naples is known for, as it lured me to the pools and boardwalk.

As with all 5 star hotels, everything is overpriced. Come prepared, leave the Amex on file, relax and just go with the flow. If you plan on penny pinching, stay elsewhere, otherwise you will gawk at some of the prices that you may encounter.

Room Tip: It takes a bit of walking to get to some of the rooms that are Ocean View!!

Stayed at this hotel several times, the refurbishment is first class, rooms very comfortable and decor light and and well set out. Service is top notch always some one on hand to help or seek information from. Concierge advise always worth taking. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff they will go that extra mile to make your stay one to remember.

Visited the hotel for 5 days one week after it opened after a refit. Firstly, the rooms were lovely but it was a shame to see some of the tiling in the bathroom already dropping off after just such a short time. The staff were very friendly and very efficient. I find it a money making exploit to have to pay 10 dollars a day for internet connection when you can get free connection at most hotels these days. The food at the Gumbo Restaurant on the beach at lunch time was excellent but we did object to paying 7 dollars for a small can of 'Bud'. Cocktails were also very expensive. The beach was beautiful and the chaps there worked so hard and were most helpful. The hotel was very busy at the weekend with largely a younger crowd of people who by large were loud, rude and left their rubbish round the pool including diapers for the attendants to clear up. Not what I expected from a Ritz Carlton hotel.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms lovely

The Ritz delivers again. Beautiful property, as you pull in the high end cars are all lined up, and the bellman are at full attention. Ocean view rooms have balconies and the white sand beach stretches for miles. The Ritz just underwent a 66 day, $400 million dollar renovation and it looks brand new. Dusk is one of the great bar/restaurants on-site, and there are 2 fabulous beach bars that sit right where the property meets the beach. The Ritz owns their beach front, so weddings and parties out there are no problem. 3 pool options keep the kids away from the adults (if that's what you so desire) and 90% of the food is created from scratch on-site. Try the ice cream...my favorite was almond joy coconut. Look out for the burgers though, they are $19 each :) Things I loved:
1. Ritz will provide you with a beach chair, umbrella and drink service on the beach ($25 surcharge)
2. At the pool, baby swim diapers are required and provided for those of you with lil diaper wearing rug rats right at the pool
3. Lots of hotel staff, and none of them are sitting idle. Service is awesome.

Room Tip: Go high, and ocean view. The only downer was that you have to put your room key on the pad in the el...
