The crown jewel of this 295-room resort is the Tiburon Golf Course, a scenic expanse made up of two Greg-Norman designed championship golf courses. But you’ll find plenty to do even if golf isn’t your bag. There’s the heated outdoor pool, surrounded by lounge chairs that offer beautiful views of the Mediterranean revival building and stately grounds. If the weather’s bad, guests head inside to (vue), the “virtual user experience” center for electronic games and virtual adventures. And when they get hungry, there’s a lobby coffee bar and three restaurants to choose from, ranging from elegant Lemonia to the chilled-out Poolside Grill.
In the Area
Looking to put your toes in the sand? A free shuttle ferries guests to the resort’s sister property, the Ritz Carlton Naples, on three-mile-long Vanderbilt Beach. Naples’ other strong suit? Its bustling café life in the boutiques and restaurants that line Fifth Avenue South (locals love Tulia Osteria and Third Street South, where the galleries are another major draw. And those traveling with kids never miss a chance to hit the Naples Zoo at Caribbean gardens.
How to Get There
Stayed here May 7-13th for our 5 year anniversary of getting married at the Ritz Beach resort. The Beach Resort was a bit too pricey for what we had in mind, the Golf Resort was perfect price wise. Let me tell you, as a hotel I actually like the Golf better! The style and interior are much more modern and stunning with out the mature stuffiness the Beach has. The lobby is gorgeous, the back terrace overlooking the golf course also beautiful. The staff is A+, most pleasant accommodating staff I've ever experienced the whole time we were there. The room was great, huge bathroom and nice balcony (one small pet peeve, no fan in the bathroom, kind of inconvenient). Bed was just ok, once we removed the pillow topper much more comfortable. Self park was $17 a day, which is unfortunate but standard and also we could drive to the Beach resort and valet for free which was a huge asset to head over for the day. Also, had the Saturday buffet outside at Lemonia, definitely a great treat! I just loved this place, price was SO fair for what you get, I would stay here again in an instant!
Had a great stay at the golf resort. I didn't realize I also had access to the beach resort so I spent a day over there lounging about. I was charged to use the beach spa which was not worth it in my opinion but other than that a relaxing stay at the golf and beach resort. Made the most of my stay by using the fitness center and spent some time Sat golfing. I will be back.
Nice stay. Room and furnishings to standard. Food and drink in the bar was very good. Staff well trained and service oriented. Older school decor, but what is on line is accurate. Only issue was way too many kids running around the club lounge. Takes away from the upscale atmospheric and seems to be a strategy for parents to feed their kids, To be fair, it’s an issue at other Ritz properties as well. Would be great if an adults area could be created, but there are obvious space limitations. Beyond that a stay consistent with brand expectations.
We have stayed here 3 times over the last three years and have enjoyed every visit ! Service is top notch and everyone is so friendly! Great coffee shop near lobby too!
Our room was a great size and very clean. We will be back for sure!
While we enjoyed our visit here for a business retreat, this is definitely a resort I'd return to just for a vacation centered around golf. Beautiful resort, outstanding service, and the ability to easily get to its sister resort on the beach a short shuttle away. Nothing but positive comments from my wife and I, as well as the 100+ team members and spouses who got to enjoy a long weekend with a mix of work & fun.
