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
Customer Service has always been the mantra of the Ritz Carlton brand but this property has exceeded all expectations. From the moment we drove into the property where the bellmen were friendly, efficient and started the perfect customer experience. At check-in the offering of either champagne or water was a great way to start any stay. All the check-in computers had customer service agents so the wait in the line was minimal.
If you are looking for a "go to" place to stay in Naples, this is the place.
This is at least the tenth year in a row that I've stayed at the Ritz for a work event. We are a large group of about 50. Upon arriving at just after 3:00 on Sunday afternoon, I was told that housekeeping was in my room and that it would be ready in 10-15 minutes. I thought I would just wait in the lobby for that short amount of time. If I had been told the truth that my room wouldn't be ready for another hour and one-half, I wouldn't have just waited. It's inexcusable for a hotel of this caliber not to be able to accurately know when a room will be ready and to not have rooms available by check-in time. The best I was offered was a drink from the bar. I was attending an event with open bar that began at 5:00 pm. I needed a room to get ready, not a drink. We had dinners at the hotel every night and from the group conversation, it was clear that others had issues also. One co-worker relayed his family trying to take the shuttle to the beach only to be told it was too full. They were told a car would come take them but the car never came and they gave up. The safe in my room wouldn't lock because it needed a battery and housekeeping didn't come until 4:30 in the afternoon. Hotel staff are surely used to season and should be able to accommodate the number of guests paying Ritz rates to be there.
The service at the Ritz Carlton Golf resort in Naples is phenomenal. I found all of the staff to be exceptionally friendly and hospitable. All of the little details are handled perfectly. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
We just got back from another fantastic stay at the Ritz Golf Resort in Naples. As always everything was impeccable. Cielo and the team at the front desk were so accommodating and professional. Michael the bartender at the lobby bar makes great drinks and is always a pleasure to talk to and Mauricio at the pool always made sure we always had a cold drink. The resort just knows what it means to take care of their guests and it’s the reason we have been coming here for over 10 years. Kudos to the Ritz team. See you again in July.
Had the pleasure of joining my husband for a long weekend work conference. Suite was lovely. Enjoyed the pool and it’s amentities. The shuttle was great going to and from The Ritz Carleton Beach property. Were able to enjoy the spa, the beach and beachfront restaurant for a drink and appetizer at sunset! The mineral water rooftop pool at the spanwas fantastic! Service at the Golf Resort was outstanding! They aim to please!
