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
My husband and I had a fantastic 3 night stay! We had a one bedroom on the 6th floor. Just beautiful! The sunsets were amazing. The room was luxurious. The staff was incredible; especially Brook at the front desk. We loved having the use of the shuttle to the beach property. We dined at both properties and our expectations were exceeded; more than delicious and again, the staff could not be more attentive. Looking forward to a return visit!
This was a return visit having had to cut short our visit last year due to the Hurricane Irma. This Hotel just excels in every aspect. The staff particulaly cannot do enough for their guests.The Cocktail bar and retaurant are amaziingly good. They run a mini bus to their sister hotel on the beach and that is equally exquisite. Visit the beach hotel and eat at either the Grille or Bites in the Lobby. You will not be disappointed.
We celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary there and received amazing kindness and attention from the staff. I cannot speak highly enough of both these hotels.
We stayed in a beautiful corner suite on the first floor, enjoyed beautiful sunsets, service and accommodations. The staff were extremely helpful in extending our stay an extra day. Mezzo, was a pleasantly surprising dinner (highly recommend).
Now, we are not golfers but because the Ritz on the Gulf is under construction we opted to stay at the Golf Resort. Our balcony room was on the top floor overlooking the pool and the golf course and it was lovely. We ate breakfast all three days in the hotel and trust me, the buffet is the way to go...amazing food selections. On our second day, the wait-staff service was off. It was a struggle to get water and for the dirty plates to be removed. On both Friday and Saturday, we took the Ritz bus shuttle to the Ritz on the Gulf. In less than fifteen minutes we were at the beach. We were properly greeted beach-side and immediately set up with two perfectly towel-wrapped lounge chairs. The warm gulf water was amazing. We plan on coming back in the next couple of months and yes, we will stay at the Ritz Golf Resort. Although, I must say, we were a bit disappointed in that when we checked in, the woman who took our phone reservation made a big deal that our birthdays were a day apart and they planned on doing something special for my birthday. When we got back from the beach on my birthday I expected to see some flowers or balloons in our room. Nope nothing and that was disappointing and very un-Ritz Carlton like.
Not our first time at the RC Naples Golf and again we booked for a few nights and ended up extending our stay. Hotel is great from top to bottom with lovely rooms, good food and great staff service.
Would we stay here again? Of course!
