Good hotel, great view if you can get a reasonable price on an ocean front room, great restaurant for dinner and breakfast, great service, expensive because it’s Naples where everything is expensive, surprised the entry to the rooms was an open air motel style which feels lower end or old, also surprised at how many areas need maintenance or cleaning. Can see why this is a 4 star versus 5 star but I got what I paid for given the same ocean front room at the ritz down the road would have been twice the price. Read less

The resort fees cover the umbrellas, towels and chairs at the beach and pools. Parking is valet and has to be paid separately. Resort fee+parking=70 per day on top of the stay, do plan for that. But...given you are getting… Read more

The resort fees cover the umbrellas, towels and chairs at the beach and pools. Parking is valet and has to be paid separately. Resort fee+parking=70 per day on top of the stay, do plan for that. But...given you are getting valet service and the amenities at the beach and pool, it seemed worth it to us! Read less
