The beach and pool set up and services were fantastic. Room is oversize the only suggestion is bathroom needs more storage. Concierge Arman and Patricia were above and beyond prior to our arrival and while there to be accommodating and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful!! Read less

Ask for a room in the Beach House, on the 3rd or 4th floor. Charge everything to your room and you'll never need to open your wallet or leave the resort during your entire stay! I only wish we could have stayed longer.

They take an additional $680 deposit when you check in. The food and drinks are very expensive. The room service is slow. I waited 90 mins for food one night. They left my take out at the counter for an hour before delivering it another night. The beach behind the place was very pretty though.

Upon arrival at Laplaya you immediately notice the attention to detail and gregarious team members. This became even more evident to me when I had an unexpected business related emergency. Diane Markelon and Ryan Morie took no less than an hour out of their busy days to make sure that I had everything that I needed to comply with my unexpected deadline. Their calm demeanor and attention to detail were top notch. Thank you, Diane and Ryan for your courtesy and professionalism. Laplaya and Mr. Herman should be proud of the great work that is being done by these team members. Read less

Wonderful beach and pools, with an awesome Tiki bar with great food and a variety of drinks to satisfy anyone. Nice location in North Naples. Plenty of shops, restaurants close by. Pickleball courts close as well, if that is something you like to do, we certainly did!
