Our stay at LaPlaya was most extraordinary. The front desk agent was friendly and placed us in a fantastic room with a view of the ocean. Wow- a beautiful view. The beach was clean, had perfect sand and the staff at both the beach and the pools were very attentive. I look forward to returning to this property in the future.

We stayed for mother's day weekend. We live in Naples but this made us feel like we were on a real vacation. The staff is extremely friendly and the resort is beautiful! I recommend the beach side for sure.

Overall we were underwhelmed with the hotel. Pluses were the size of the room and the comfy bed, the cleaning staff and the car valet staff. Minuses were the poolside staff who were surly in insolent, the front desk staff who had attitude, the over-priced very average restaurant, a waiter who tried to bump up our bill by charging us for a bottle of wine over three times the price of the one we had. Disappointing because the venue is great. I wish we’d gone to the Van Der Bill resort up the road which is much nicer. Read less

Food was very good but priced a little high. Drinks reasonably priced. Love the fires at night. Bed was very comfortable room very clean. They did a great job cleaning up after the hurricane damage. Beach is spotty with shells but not as bad as it is north of Naples where sandals are needed on the beach.

LaPlaya Resort is great. Staff was knowledgeable, welcoming and professional. The ocean view from out room was spectacular. Our room was very clean and modern. Plenty of hot water for showers! If you are visiting Naples, I would definitely recommend LaPlaya.
