    Good, clean beachfront with tiki bar & awesome SPA

    by

    We stayed for two nights for a weekend getaway two summers ago. Note that this was before recent hurricanes. Hotel was clean with decent, new-looking furniture and had a relaxed atmosphere, not overly stuffy like some. The hotel has a good uncrowded section of beach, the view was nice from our room, except for the roof of the restaurant below. We enjoyed the pool and tiki bar area. There were a lot of families staying there.

    For us, the relative novelty was seeing the sun set over the ocean since we can only see it rise on the east coast. Views of that were gorgeous!

    I think the summer off-season rates are worth it but you'll end up paying too much to stay here in the winter, unless you are a golf enthusiast.

    Unique Quality: Great golf course, excellent fitness center, spa and spa facilities. Great shower products. Something about the scent of the products they used in the spa made me feel extremely pampered and very much like I was at a spa, even when I was back in the room shampooing the next day.

    And the Spa, of course!

    by

    The resort also includes a full-service spa. Not only can you get all the most luxurious pampering (massage, hydro-therapy, etc.), but you can also join classes in aerobics, aqua-aerobics & yoga, or consult with their in-house personal trainer during your visit.

    Doin' The Beach Thing Right

    by

    You can rent beach chairs &/or umbrellas from the pool area (they are free to use by the pool, just not outside), but if you are going to be there for any length of time I’d recommend you drive down the road to Walgreens or Target to get a throw-away chair. I’m used to resorts in the Caribbean where there’s no charge for beach chairs when you are a guest at the resort, so I was rather stunned at the large fees they charge. Can’t recall for sure, but I think it was something like $8 for half a day.

    NPBR's Beach, you can walk forever...

    by

    What a gorgeous stretch of beach this is! You can walk for miles in either direction. Off in the distance to the south you can see the Naples Fishing Pier, a free public wharf that’s great for fishing or sunset-watching.

    My Room

    by

    My room was a budget special, only about $80 a night off-season, so the view wasn’t spectacular (though I took the next picture of the golf course from my window). But it was pristine, pleasantly decorated, very comfortable, and included a bar with small refrigerator & sink. Most of the recently redecorated rooms now include wireless highspeed Internet access. They also have suites & efficiencies available, with kitchenettes in room that include microwaves.

    The Best Beachfront Value!

    by

    The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Resort is an older and locally revered institution - and a great bargain for nice beachside accommodations as well. Located on lovely Gulf Shore Boulevard, the main hotel is west of the road, opening out to the gleaming white sands of Naples Beach.

Sunny delight

by TripAdvisor Member bigdog33

Just returned from a 5 day - 4 night stay at the Naples Beach hotel and gulf club.
Would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the Naples area. We stayed in the Penthouse wings and our room was quaint and spotless and if there was any downside at all, the bathroom could have been alittle bigger.
All the employees of the hotel were most courteous and gracious and were always there to answer questions or lend a hand.
There restaraunts provied a wide variety of foods and the golf course, tennis courts and spa were well above average.
You can't go wrong staying here.

Older But Enjoyable Place For Family Beach Vacation

by TripAdvisor Member MilanK

Just returned from six night stay in "Penthouse" rooms. Rooms were clean, standard sized, with great view. Could walk right out glass doors to a small grassy area with the beach about 20 feet out. The private balcony allowed us to enjoy the amazing sunsets right outside our room.

The resort is better for families than couples because of the quiet vibe, older decor, and some shortcomings listed below. It's not too crowded, it has a nice long beach, and a small but well positioned pool. It's close to terrific restuarants on 5th Ave (Bistro 821 and Yabba were A+). The resort also has a late night "Seminole Store" with ice cream, coffee, and other treats, which our kids loved.

We were disappointed by a few things that seemingly could be improved. For instance, Breakfast was included, but the place where it was served smelled so musty that our kids asked after two days if we could just skip it to avoid the smell.

Management might also take better steps to ensure a clean beach, as there are a lot of cigarette butts, especially under each of the straw huts (which you pay 18 bucks a day to rent with chairs). The cabana workers might make "beach clean up" part of their morning routine so that no one has to build sandcastles full of Marlboros.

On two of the six days of our stay, the hotel hosted private parties in the area right off the pool. This meant that the 25 or so kids attending the parties would stampede into the pool like the Caddy-Day pool scene in Caddyshack. These are not the type of things you expect from an expensive hotel.

This place has a lot going for it, and the location and rooms make it worthwhile for the price. Hopefully, they'll make a few improvements and really make this a return destination each year.

Several hotels in one

by TripAdvisor Member susanp99

This is the only place you can stay in Naples, that is on a private big beautiful beach. It is very good for families. Our family has been going there for 25 years. One must remember, the drawback with this property is consistancy. This hotel combines 5 smaller hotels. The first one has no ocean views unless you rent the suites at the end of this building. The second is the main check in building. Rooms on the Gulf side are lovely. Next, is the Cabana wing that has views of the Gulf but no balconies. No one seems to be thrilled with these rooms and if you book through a discount hotel site, this is the room you will get, so BE PREPARED!
Next is the Watkins wing where everyone has a nice room and balcony with an ocean view which are great rooms. Last is the Penthouse building and these rooms that are Gulf front are the best. This property is recently renovated. They have always been warm and wonderful there. A real family affair. Definately the best sunsets and beach. The food is great too.

Never again!!

by TripAdvisor Member JeanSmith1

After spending 2 previous holidays in good rooms at this hotel, we booked several months previously for our recent trip, to be told that the hotel now had completely refurbished rooms
We arrived to find the hotel under reconstruction, with half the building demolished. We were put into the Watkins Building in the most shabby room we have ever been in.On complaining we were 'upgraded' to a Penthouse Wing. The room was identical in it's poor quality, the only difference was an Ocean View. The Bath was badly stained, the ceiling plaster crumbling and the paintwork had probably not been cleaned in a long time. Room service after 9pm was non existent, the beach bar listed as open till midnight closed at 10pm. There was nowhere to get even a soft drink, not even a vending machine. All our issues were brought to the attention of staff, but nothing was done, nor reflected in the final bill. We will certainly not be staying there again. We stayed later in a 5 * resort in Boca Ratan for exactly the same price as Naples Beach & Golf, but the difference was remarkable!!

NAPLES IN MARCH

by JTS8159

My wife and I are looking to get away for a quiet, long weekend in March. Spring Break is keeping us out of Fort Myers and now we are considering Naples. How are the crowds in area during the end of March. Any recommnedations on Beach Front Hotels?

Thanks!

Re: NAPLES IN MARCH

The wife and I just returned from Italy including a day in Naples. I suggest staying in Sorrento as it will give you a fantastic view of the bay and the town and Capri. We spent the night around the bend on the Amalphi Coast at Positano at the Best Western. At night, a bus comes to pick up willing guests to transport them up to the top of the mountain for a fantastic dinner and view. I wouldnt stay in Naples. Its kinda scary there with a lot of turmoil recently. But do go to central Naples to the museum with the treasures and art of Pompeii. If you want to park there be sure to make a reservation. The museum is closed on tuesdays so call first to be sure. Then you have to visit Pompeii!!!!! Its a visit of a lifetime. The touring is broken up into two parts. Both worth seeing but takes a lot of time.

Naples, Florida or Naples, Italy?

Re: NAPLES IN MARCH

by jsawyer41

Not many resorts on the beach in Naples. All the beach front property is taken by beautiful condos.
Naples Beach Club is where I would stay. or you could go north and stay in N. Naples at the Ritz. You may want to rent a condo. That's a great way to go.

Have you considered the FL panhandle? There is an area of the Florida Panhandle that is called the "Forgotten Coast" and it's wonderful! It's West of Panama city and nice and quiet.

We have a place in Cape San Blas, FL that is 50 miles SE of Panama city. It's 20 miles long and at least half of it is State Park and there are NO highrises, no crowds, no commercialism etc. It's the type of beach I grew up going to...even at Spring Break time!

We have a long weekend open in March if you want to check it out at www.TheCapeEscape.com!

Good luck, whereever you decide to go!

Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club often has good specials, check out some tips & photos:
http://www.virtualtourist.com/m/683d0/ba798/3/

There are many great rooms to stay in that would be less expensive than beach front, but still with easy access to beaches (see same link). Naples has public beach access points at the end of every street, with metered parking. If you have a car, consider staying at the the Lemon Tree Inn
http://www.lemontreeinn.com/
or the Seashell Motel
http://www.lodging.com/destinations/naples/sea-shell/

While you wil be visiting in what's still considered prime season, the Naples Beach is so long & lovely that ti's not difficult to find quieter spots. Plus, the crowd is definitely older, not at all the Spring Break drink-till-you-puke-&-trash-everything-in-sight bunch. I'd recommend you buy some throw-away beach chairs at Target so you don't have to pay the hotel's exorbitant chair rental rates.
