Divided between the Gulf Tower, Beach Tower and Beach House, the 189-room LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, A Noble House Resort, sprawls along a white sand beach. All accommodations feature lime green walls, floral throw pillows atop plush bedding and floor-ceiling doors that open to private furnished balconies. Guests are invited to stretch out and relax on the beach, in one of the private cabanas surrounding the hotel’s four pools (with beach butlers ferrying margaritas from the Tiki Bar, naturally) and by the fire pit over sunset drinks or S’mores. By day, guests alternate between the golf course, SpaTerre, and the Gulf of Mexico for kayaking, parasailing or standup paddleboarding. Work up an appetite for dinner? Make reservations at Baleen restaurant, where you can dine in either in the elegant dining room or right on the sand and try dishes such Florida Keys yellowtail snapper with creamed boniato, roasted bok choy, mango and aji amarillo.
In the Area
Those seeking time on the water can partake in chartered fishing trips or guided boat trips run by the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Naturalists will also enjoy strolling the 2.25 mile raised boardwalk through the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, or sailing around the monkey islands at the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens. City slickers may prefer the shops and cafés of Fifth Avenue South (or, if rare bad weather hits, the stores and cinema at Mercato Shops).
How to Get There
Nice hotel from its location nearby to the beach.
Restaurant prices are higher compared to the restaurants nearby the hotel which has an excellent food option compared to the one offered in the restaurant.
We stayed for a week in early July. The first night when we checked in, I was so upset. I had booked a low floor beach front room months in advance and they "upgraded" us to a high floor room. They had no other rooms available that evening. The problem is that I am terrified of heights and being on a high floor with little kids is not ideal. I went back the next day and they were able to move us to a low floor room within the following 24 hours. My entire experience changed at that point.
Our new room was in the beach house, on the second floor with an a beach view. It was truly AMAZING. I couldn't get over how wonderful the room was.
The pools are also very nice and the kids loved them. Kids camp was great and a chance for my husband and I to relax a bit.
The beach is very nice and beach service is great as well. Sunsets are unreal. Buffet breakfast was the best. I just wish there was more in the immediate area to walk to.
I hope to return here again some day.
Really enjoyed our stay. Restaurant is a bit pricey but food is good. Loved the golf course. Facilities were great and staff extremely nice. Rooms on the beach are really nice. Rooms in the Vanderbilt across the street are okay but could use updates. not the softest bathroom tissue. Overall great place
Great staff and service. The hotel is right on the beach with drink service at all pool locations and even on the beach. If you need some R and R, this is the place to stay. The hotel also offers several dining options from a pool side bat to a world class restaurant.
We booked a night to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Check in was seamless and friendly. The staff asked about our marriage and then gave us a complimentary room upgrade. Very thoughtful. All the staff at the bar and restaurant were always smiling and helpful. The room was great although the bathroom could use a little upkeep. The setting is spectacular, right on the beach and grounds have everything you need.
