From the time we made our reservation to our stay our experience was wonderful. The staff was amazing. The location was excellent. For the price we will definitely returning. Being able to walk out of the room and into the beach was so easy. Our vacation was so great we will be returning.

Absolutely charming, lovely, delightful resort. Resort staff, beach crew staff Sean and Mike were courteous, attentive and knew exactly how to set up our chairs and umbrella each day. Michael the Chef at the Turtle Club made the most decadent meals and was a delight to chat with. Valet staff were pleasant and attentive. Literally steps away from the beach. We will be back as often as possible. The sunsets are amazing here. Highly recommend.

Charming place to stay for a long weekend....can't beat the location and accomodations. I used to stay at a known luxury chain next door, and two years ago discovered this great alternative. Need to book in advance, and will be returning each year!

Slap bang on the front of the beach is this marvellous hotel that has own over family and friends time and time again!

First visited in June 2012 we stayed in gulf side deluxe suites and found them to be marvellous! Roomy, comfortable and frankly brilliant.

Upon visiting in May last year we had a deluxe apartment and that was even better! Over looking the lagoon were had perfect views for breakfast, with the added bonus of dolphin spotting thrown in for free!

The hotel staff are great, the bonus of beach attendants and the frankly brilliant Turtle Bay restaurant make this a must stay!

I stayed at the Vanderbilt Beach Resort last summer with my boyfriend . We loved every minute of it. The room was clean, staff helpful, beach beautiful, sunset breathtaking.
We ate 2 out of 4 dinners at the Turtle Club , right downstairs. Two delicious dinners.
We loved the location.
Unfortunately, we couldn't make it back this summer , but I'm looking forward to a return visit!

Stayed a week here in June with the family. It was our second time at Vanderbilt and once again I admit it was the right choice. It is an absolutely lovely and quiet place, right on the beautiful beach. The rooms are good, the service is great. It is the best place to stay in Naples.

Situated between two rather expensive hotels on Vanderbilt Beach , the summer 2 night mini vacation @ this hidden beauty of a spot is a breath of fresh air . We had a Mini Suite on the second level of a small but well run property that also houses the Turtle Club Restaurant downstairs.
Upon arrival when you register at the front desk you are issued two sets of coupons which discounts lunch and dinner at about half a dozen different spots nearby rather than at the Hotel but personally , I prefer dining at the Turtle Club . The food is always top quality and the staff at both the Hotel and the Restaurant ( different ownership ) is excellent . Dinner can be on the beach at sunset which is just spectacular or inside in the A/C. Continental Breakfast is available at no extra cost.
After our brief stay , ( the beach is just steps away ) we went Downtown to Old Naples where the shopping and places to eat and drink are as charming as the entire city . It`s only 2 Hrs & 15 minutes from Delray Beach but it seems like it`s a world away.
