“Wonderful time in Naples, FL”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Just two nights but Oh My! Our room on the first floor was ideal just across from the garden.
Dinner at the Turtle Clue on the beach at sunset was outstanding. Unfortunately we had cold rainy weather until the day we left. Will be back soon since it is a short 2 hour drive from Miami. Thank you to Andy for all you help.

I rented a room at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort with 3 other people who were also racing at an event a few blocks from this hotel. The room we were given was much better than even the pictures showed on the website. Having 2 bedrooms and a pullout we had plenty of sleeping area for all four of us. We used all the space available including the wrap around porch, the big and well equipped kitchen and the dining room. I would highly recommend this property for any trip to the Naples area.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor and had great views of the gulf and a bay.

This is the kind of place that reminds you of old Florida but, mind you, it's better with a friend, loved one, or group. I went alone and, since there are two queen beds and a full kitchen in each room, it really just seemed sad not to share it...hat's a lot of room going to waste. I would have to say that the only bad thing about the rooms are the lack of PERSONAL balconies and of privacy in the dressing area; if you want to change, you must close all the windows and turn on the lights, even in the middle of the day.

The restaurant, The Turtle Club, didn't provide extensive hours but I understand they are working on that so, maybe room service will be available one day. Either way, eating RIGHT on the beach, and often, with your toes in the sand, is the way to go! It doesn't hurt that they have wonderful food and service and an extension of the fantastic personnel that VBR is known for.

I love the beach seating but when I tipped the guy (not Sean) for good service and was there for a chair bright and early, it took half the day to get a towel and an umbrella up, and I never did get a table or drink flag. The resort IS right next to the public beach access however, it seemed constrained to that immediate area and everyone behaved nicely, it seemed.

The staff is lovely and helpful from the front desk to the valet! Superb location and a pretty festive beach. right next to the public beach access and the Ritz Carlton offered pretty diverse crowds and the sunsets were unmatched! I love how everyone claps when the sun completes setting. I plan to return again and again.

Room Tip: Go with a friend and rent a car; lots to see and do but, don't forget to golf, spa, and spend a...

We just got back from a wonderful stay at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort. Our daughter was getting married at the Ritz which was just a walk away. All the Vanderbilt staff was so helpful, from the front desk, housekeeping to the cabana boy on the beautiful beach. The rooms were well kept and very clean. Also the beds and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud.
You can sit in lounge chairs at the beach under an umbrella and enjoy the beach, than walk up to the Turtle Club restaurant for lunch or dinner. In the evening we sat and watch the beautiful sunset. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The rooms on the gulf are nice

You cant stay closer to the beach than this hotel.
Nice small hotel. Nice rooms, fantastic restaurant right at the beach.
Free sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach.
10 minutes drive to Naples downtown which is the most beautifull downtown I have ever seen!

What could be better then being 10 steps from the sand. An efficiency with full kitchen and housekeeping services so you never have to clean the unit like you do a condo. We have stayed in hotels, condo's etc in Naples and this is the perfect fit. This privately owned property is managed by very friendly staff. We were lucky to get a room here this year and now have our name down for next year.

Stayed April 10-13, 2014. We took a girls trip for my mom's 60th birthday and loved this place. We called it a diamond in the rough....it really was! Right on the beach, the rooms were very nice and we loved having the full sized fridge! We stayed in a regular room with 2 queen beds. The staff was very friendly and accommodating! Overall just a great little hide away place to stay! I would love to take my family there as well. We did dine at the hotel restaurant for dinner the first night there and it was very good; didn't get a chance to dine there for lunch but it was always packed so make sure to make a reservation!
