Spread over 23 waterfront acres, this 474-room property has something for everyone. There are three different pools to suit your style: the Mangrove Pool with a water slide and graduated entry for families, the Hibiscus Hideaway Pool for athletes seeking to swim laps, and the Palm Terrace Pool for quiet lounging. Meals are served at elegant Aura, which serves local specialties such as pan-seared grouper, or poolside through the Pool Bar and Grill. The beach is reached by a lovely walk through mangroves or a brief tram ride, and the Naples Grande Golf Club is a short drive away.
In the Area
The white sand beach isn’t the only attraction within walking distance of the property; Artis-Naples, a cultural campus that is home to both the 30,000 square foot, 15-gallery Baker Museum, and the Naples Philharmonic, is a pleasant stroll away. So, too, are the Waterside Shops, a swanky, open-air collection of designer boutiques. Those with kids can also spend the day exploring the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens.
How to Get There
This must be a third or fourth stay at what is now named the Naples Grande Beach Resort. I mentioned it was my husband's birthday and we were surprised and delighted by a gift of a charming little cake and chocolate covered strawberries delivered to our beautiful room overlooking the Gulf. We love the balcony, the beach just a short tram ride away, and the fabulous pools, excitingly lighted at night with color.
The lobby bar is always a pleaser and they provide tasty food selections right there that are substantial as a "going out to dinner" substitute. The beds are soft, tvs huge, and wifi reliable. Our "go to" Fl. staycation spot is the Naples Grande.
We went with high expectations and we were pleasantly surprised as this place went beyond. First the location cannot be better, the trail linking the hotel and the beach makes the perfect excuse for doing a minimum daily healthy walk. I guess if the is no wind at all you could get nosseums (not during our stay) if that happens you also have trams back and forth.
The hotel spontaneously upgraded us to a better room with gulf view and also provided a late check out so we could extend the beach life in our last day.
The rooms are great (maybe a microwave would be a good idea just to heat up water if you want a different beverage than the ones pre stablished in the Keurig machine) the bed and pillows were ok and the bathroom has a large tube which is nice (the toilet part is together with the tube so that is not the best configured but still works fine)
The beach is beautiful and the beach restaurant is good and the staff is very kind and helpful. I guess that for 37 usd/day of beach resort fees they should give you a sun umbrella so bring your own or be prepared to pay an extra for that.
The pools are clean and quiet (there is an adults pool too)
Our room was a bit noisy as our little fridge was not so silent and at night you could hear some vibrations but they were between tolerable ranges. We slept fine.
Wifi was ok, elevators and parking were ok too. They charge for parking from 8 to 16 usd depending on self or valet parking respectively. We had excellent weather conditions and beautiful sunsets.
Will recommend it hands down! Thanks for such a wonderful time in Naples.
