Nice hotel though there are some buts....Posted Dec 15, 2013
Pros: Clean beautiful rooms Great pool service Awesome beach service Stuff very friendly
Cons: Access between buildings
Location: It is more of a quiet location for relaxation rather than party time. Everything closes at 10PM. If you want more of a party location go to Miami :)
Hotel was clean and nice. Room also was clean a beautiful. Stuff was very friendly. The pool service was great! And most of all I loved the beach service. The chairs were sooooooo comfortable! There are some small details that are a bit of an inconvenient. The main inconvenience I face with was the room view. The room faces either pool view or ocean view, it is not like most of the hotels ocean and pool view to be together. This really annoyed me because I wanted both and had to chose between ocean or pool view. Another thing was that the buildings are separate from each other so if you go check in/out and you are place in other than main building you will have to carry your bags since there are stairs to get to the other buildings.

Enjoyable weekendPosted Nov 18, 2013
Pros: the proximity to the beach
Cons: Information about availability of coffee at the bar More places to eat other than the main dining room and Tiki bar
Location: Unless you want to go to the beach, you'll have to drive to get anywhere
Great stay but seems to be a wedding venue -- one evening my husband and I walked on the beach and upon our return one of the wedding attendant told us and several other beach walkers that we had to wait until the photographer was through with the wedding or we could walk in the high grass (not really an option). We waited and other locals were not so patient about waiting and one attendant tried to physically hold back an older woman who was walking. We found that to be rude. If they truly wanted everyone's cooperation, they could have served hors d'oeuvres to people who patiently waited. This way everyone would have been happy. I found it a little presumptuous of the wedding planner and party. I don't know if the resort was aware of their practices. Other than that we truly enjoyed our stay.

Making the best of fading grandeur.Posted Nov 12, 2013
Our stay was lovely. But, be aware, the management is working hard to keep an aging and dated property fresh and clean. The grand dame is definitely showing her age and doesn't quite offer the comforts and amenities found in newer properties of similar rating and price point. The shining star of the property was the restaurant, Baleen; which was fantastic by any metric.

ParadisePosted Nov 9, 2013
Perfect resort hotel right on the beach! Excellent food with al fresco dining, cocktail service on the beach and tiki bar by the pool! Even slept with balcony door open to hear the waves lapping on shore at night! Hated to leave... :(

The hotel needs updated, but the service was greatPosted Sep 19, 2013
Pros: staff and service
Cons: room decorating and update the showers.
Location: wonderful location...best in town
The rooms were small and not very updated...however, the service and staff was outstanding. We were catered to in everyway...and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful time being on the beach and the beach service was excellent. For the money, I expected more luxury room...but overall the vacation was relaxing and enjoyable. I also liked that tips were added into the bills at the resort...it made it easy for us to not carry cash and worry about tipping.

needs renovationPosted Sep 14, 2013
Pros: Friendliness, very helpful staff , right on the beach, everthing nearby
Cons: needs paint and complete renovation cushions were stained on balcony chairs . paint was chipped around elevator doors.
Everthing was perfect the staff, the service ,the comfort and the food. It was a little run down and needs a major makeover. Even though it was run down it was clean. A little over priced for the condition of the place Otherwise we will stay there again

Untold fees. Pros and ConsPosted Sep 13, 2013
Pros: The ocean and staff.
Cons: The furniture on the beach and balcony
Location: they have tons of different places to eat and shop, though quite pricey in Naples.
There is a $25 a day fee for the valet parking, there is no choice in that matter as there is no parking elsewhere within close walking distance. Also a $20 a day fee for the beach towels and chairs. The beach chairs aren't as they show in the pictures either, they are aluminum and plastic. Many of which are broken or repaired (welded cracks). Wooden balcony furniture was peeling and faded and the cushions had tears an fade. One of the pools was having a new edge put on and in front of the main tower was also having construction done so it was an inconvenience at times with noise and eye sores On the bright side..it was overall a beautiful location with a very helpful and friendly staff, from valet, housekeeping, to the bar an front desk. This resort tries to accommodate you to the point that you dont have to leave...at a cost of course. The beach is beautiful, the ocean is quite clear and the pools are chlorine free. We saw and swam with fish up to 2 feet long just a few feet off shore (using goggles) and saw thousands of sand dollars further out as well as a huge starfish and dolphins off in the distance. Waverunner's (jetski's) and numerous other kayaks, surf boards etc were available for rental daily on the beach at the resort. Overall it was an amazing vacation but there is a few things that could have been better. In the end of our 8 days we ran up a tab of almost $800 ($14 drinks and auto added gratuities+ the fees above) (they put a $600 hold at check-in)

Great Relaxing PlacePosted Sep 10, 2013
Pros: The Pool areas is just perfect, the Balle's Restaurant food was excellent no need to ho out to eat.
Cons: Free Parking... $25 per day can be costly if you stay over a week. Natural Juices would be good to be add in to the menu
Location: Location was great, as I mentioned quiet really quiet... The restaurant on 5th was ok its a good place to take a walk, better food on the hotel.
My wife and I choose the hotel for our honeymoon, we were looking for a nice quiet week and we got it. The hotel is in a quiet location in naples the ocean is calm and the the beach is clean, warm water with white sand. Love it.
