Naples Beach Resort - Can You Figure Out Which Is The Best Naples Beach Resort?

people hotel florida it’s

People from everywhere vacation in Naples, Florida. Most people who visit Naples are from another area of the country. In most cases, they’re from somewhere on the east coast. People who live in the southeast will drive to Naples during vacation time. People who live in the mid-Atlantic region and the northeast will fly to Naples – yes, there is an airport in Naples. Believe it or not, even Floridians vacation in Naples, which is saying a lot. It’s common for people on the east coast of Florida to vacation in Naples because it’s a completely different Florida experience. The east coast might have the ocean, but with that also comes a lot of people and commercialization. The west coast of Florida is much more laidback. Even the water is a lot calmer.

Naples does not have as many hotels as most tourist cities, but this is a good thing. It keeps the crowds to a manageable level, which makes every vacationer’s experience more enjoyable. Instead of reviewing every Naples hotel, we will just cover every Naples beach resort. The word ‘every’ is used loosely there. Only three hotels/resorts in Naples qualify as a Naples beach resort. And you might be surprised to know that only one of these three is a terrific option. This is not to say the other Naples beach resorts are bad options, but they do have their negatives.

To keep you in suspense, we will not reveal which of the three Naples beach resorts is the best option until the end of the article. If you have an IQ above 72, you will probably be able to figure it out on your own anyway, but it’s always fun to add a little suspense.

Let’s being with the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. This Naples beach resort has received several awards as the Best Place to Stay in Southwest Florida. Do you believe in conspiracies? You know, like hotels paying off magazines to win awards? Hmm…. You can judge for yourself based on the following information. The good news is that this popular Naples beach resort offers two new pools, a restaurant, a business center, a bar/lounge, and free parking. The two new pools are great. The restaurant is an enormous drawback for the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. If you don’t plan on dining here, then the ‘Best Place to Stay in Southwest Florida’ awards mentioned above can definitely be justified. But most people that stay in a resort would also like to eat there. The food here is average at best and way overpriced. The service is also poor. The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club is located at 851 Gulf Shore Boulevard North. The phone number is 239-261-2222.

The Vanderbilt Beach Resort is the most expensive Naples beach resort, but you get what you pay for (hint, hint). This Naples beach resort has been around for over 50 years, which is a sure sign of superb service and amenities. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The manicured gardens help establish this mood. Everything at this Naples beach resort is kept in pristine condition. The service is excellent, the food at The Turtle Club restaurant is great, and the beach is only a few feet away. There is a beachside pool and a tennis court. The only negative is that the rooms are relatively small, but they offer great views of the water. And if space is an issue, it’s possible to rent a 1,400-square-foot condo. The Vanderbilt Beach Resort is located at 9225 Gulfshore Drive North. The phone number is 800-243-9076.

The third Naples beach resort to consider is The Naples Grande Beach Resort – The Waldorf Astoria Collection. If you love amenities, you will love this place. It’s a long list, but the most important amenities are: sauna, spa, golf, poolside restaurant and bar, steam bath, gym, tennis court, and pool. The rooms have balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. And there is a nature preserve between the hotel and the beach. To get to the beach, you walk on a ½-mile-long boardwalk. This is a scenic little trip. There are two potential negatives here. One is that many guests have complained of a musty odor, but this has a lot to do with what room you’re in and what time of year it is. The other negative is that the pool is open to members, not just guests. If you’re a pool person, this can lead to overcrowding. The address for this amenity-rich Naples beach resort is 475 Seagate Drive. The phone number is 239-597-3232.
