......We've been extremely blessed and very lucky to have heard about , & then finally met the wonderful Mrs Diane Moore and her awesome staff at the "Vanderbilt Beach Resort" in Naples, Fla., & their legendary 5 star restaurant "Turtle Club" years ago , and true to what we heard , in the 8 or 9 years we've been blessed by their extreme kindness & generosity and our Pediatric Foundation members families have been allowed to lodge there & dine , we ALWAYS hear about the "mind blowing food and fresh , excellent seafood" 1st, from everybody, and then they RAVE about the suites being SO clean, with opulent gulf views of the ocean & palm trees , and vistas to see, and their walks along the gorgeous shores ,and how incredibly relaxing each & every families stay has been ...!!Across an 8 or 9 year time span period, folks, from EVERY FAMILY..??? That speaks volumes about how wondrous this great Fla resort & their world caliber restaurant are !! In my 26 years long career working with gravely-ill children and their families 24hrs a day/7 days a wk , you very rarely IF EVER get ALL OF THEM to be extremely happy about 1 place in-common w/ each other, but they ALL agree about this resort being spectacular , & this again shows just how awesome "Vanderbilt Beach Resort" is 365 days a year , & why we LOVE this resort & Mrs Diane Moore and her team's treatment of guests , & stay with this hotel for ALL of our southwest Fla needs for members families, year after year........!! We recommend this hotel resort with our highest ratings we can give , meaning on a scale of 1 to 10, we'd give it a 10 to 11 stars , and IF you stay here and enjoy the world caliber shores & beach and food and views, you'll see why , and become 1 of their clients, as well , trust us.....!!!

This place was an unbelievable find. My wife and I booked a condo at VBR after we were unable to get accommodations at a nearby hotel. We figured it would be "OK" as it was on the beach. When we arrive we were greeted by the afternoon desk clerk, Dave, who became our friend. Dave is friendly and knowledgeable. He offered excellent options for dining and entertainment. The condo was spacious, well appointed and had 2 screened in porches! It was clean and quiet, and only steps from the beach. The staff were courteous and the service impeccable. The Turtle Club, the restaurant associated with the VBR, is not to be missed. Be aware however, dinner reservations at the Turtle Club are hard to come by so make your reservation well in advance.

We are already planning our next trip.

We spent seven nights at the Vanderbilt in a Gulf Side Suite. The location was perfect, away from traffic, and located on the beach. From our room on the second floor we could view palm trees, pool, and the gulf. The room itself had everything we needed and we felt very much at home. We ate at the Turtle Club twice, the first time we had a table by a window and it was very quite and relaxing. The second time we were seated by the door that leads outside and by the bar, this was very noisy and a lot of traffic, people coming and going. Needless to say if they try to seat you by the door ask for another table. We did not eat outside so not sure about that experience. I must say though the food is excellent and well worth the price. The room was very clean, only complaint is that the bathroom is a little small, the shower is suffient but the sink area is tiny. All in all we will be back, a good place to kick off your shoes and enjoy the beach and relax. A little bit of olde Fl!

Having eaten at the restaurant here we had no hesitation in booking a 'room'. The standard of accommodation matched the standard of the restaurant - excellent!. Would recommend to anybody without hesitation. Could not fault in anyway.

Room Tip: Any room with a view

I love the VBR and plan on coming back every year. We stayed there last year during the LPGA CME tournament and had a wonderful time. The Deluxe Condo was perfect and had everything we needed for entertaining our guests. The accommodations, views, service and follow up were above and beyond our expectations. We called to book again this year and the staff remembered us and made our reservations within minutes. Thanks for all your great service !

Michael

Room Tip: Deluxe condo is a great value and wonderful views !
