Beach house rooms need to be updated- paper thin walls so unfortunately every morning we were woken to toddlers screeching. In the evening they were crying- only there for a few days so didn’t complain- ready of the hotel, beach, service all very good but if you want to eat at Baleen schedule weeks in advance

I had a business meeting at La Playa and everything was exceptional. I would highly recommend for a business meeting or a place to do a vacation. The restaurant is first class dining and the beach and pool area/service leaves you feeling well taken care of.

After a long winter we were happy to end up at the Tiki Bar at LaPlaya. Bartenders Corey, Vince, and the manager Georgiana provide impeccable service and always with a smile! Three TV’s to easily watch sports and a staff that makes it fun to hang out there. Food was great and the drinks even better!

Excellent Naples beach resort. Enjoyed our time at beach. The golf course was in excellent shape. Interesting layout with lots of water. Our housekeeping person Ileana from Albania was our favorite resort employee. Super friendly and helpful. Please give her a raise!! Overall it is comparable to the Ritz with a smaller resort feel.
