Drinks expensive. You pay for convenience. Tiki bar food was very good. Spa was super friendly and Ira my masseuse was fantastic. A nice pampering vacation. Some guests are snooty and rude to staff. Staff was always professional. Read less

The LaPlaya is a wonderful beachfront resort in Naples.

Beautiful clean hotel. The staff (front desk, bell hop, valet, pool attendants) were amazing.

Beautiful clean hotel. The staff (front desk, bell hop, valet, pool attendants) were amazing. One major complaint was the cleaning staff entering our room when we had the “Do Not Disturb” sign clearly posted. We had all our jewelry, cash, electronics, etc out because we knew we weren’t needing cleaning services. The hotel manager (Joe) was very understanding and went above and beyond to make sure we didn’t leave unhappy. This hotel is a la carte. Everything will cost a quite a bit. Especially room service and every single item found in the room. (eg $16 / drink at the pool, $7/water bottle in the room) I wouldn’t stay here again mainly because the cost. Not because the hotel or its staff. Read less

We visit Florida several times a year to escape the snow and have stayed at nearly all of the nice hotels on Marco Island and Naples.

We visit Florida several times a year to escape the snow and have stayed at nearly all of the nice hotels on Marco Island and Naples. I have often looked at LaPlaya in the past and finally did book a stay. We love this hotel!!! The size was ideal - not giant like the JW Marriott Marco. Not snooty - like the beautiful Ritz. It had a boutique feeling like the Marco Ocean Beach Resort but larger. Our room was dreamy!!! We were on one of the top floors in the beachfront tower and our balcony was on top of the beach.When you walked into the room all you saw was the ocean. The balcony is large with two chaise and two other chairs and table. The perfect spot to drink your morning coffee made in your room in a cool coffee grinder/coffee maker machine. The room is very large and so pretty. There is a separate living room with couch, chairs, bookshelves, table and chairs - more lovely than the photos. The separate bedroom has a comfy king bed with nice linens and pillow spray. Lots of storage space and a cool Marshall bluetooth speaker. There is a desk and chair area and more sliding doors to the beautiful balcony. The bathroom is large and modern and the products are awesome. Some reviewers complained about the shower/bath. I loved the shower but you do step into the bath to get in it so if mobility is an issue I would seek a handicap room or perhaps the hotel has other options. We ordered food on the beach (raise your flag), at the restaurant for breakfast and the patio for dinner. The food was consistently very good. Our dinner outside was the best dinner we had in Naples. There are bikes to use, a beautiful quiet stretch of beach and great walking. This is my new, favorite spot in Florida! I highly recommend this hotel. Read less
