We rented a condo unit overlooking the lagoon and a two minute walk to the gulf through the hotel property. Magnificent sunsets on the gulf and sunrises on the lagoon. The unit was ample and roomy. We would return.

This is a classic Old Naples Hotel located on one of the best beaches in the area (Vanderbilt Beach). Rooms are a little dated but still very nice and you can not beat the price for the location. The beach is right outside your door and dining at the Turtle Club with sad I between your toes is nice.

We were well looked after on the beach with loungers and umbrellas provided. It's a small, intimate and friendly resort. My favourite place in our two month touring holiday. Nice... More

We stayed just two days at this property yet we will remember it for a lifetime! It's a deliciously small yet upscale resort that's perfect for couples and families.
