With in laws in Pelican Bay it's nice to visit but always find a place for a few nites on our own. First time staying at VBR and without a doubt will be going back forever!

This is just what I was looking for. A girls weekend for 3 and we had an apartment overlooking the bayside. Two bathrooms which worked out really well, a stocked kitchen where we made our morning coffee and toast on the terrace overlooking the bay. The beach was clean with white sand and a cabana boy to bring down a... More

We have been visiting yearly (sometimes more) since April 1998, when we moved to South Florida, and value for price is best in Fla. The rooms until the recent renovation were a bit rustic; now they're on par with others. The Gulf view from rooms is fantastic; sunsets are an event. Parking and beach chairs/towels are free. Staff is very... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in March 2014 and LOVED it. This might not be a great fit for everyone, but if the beach is the reason for your trip, this is a great option. We stayed in a gulf side room -- very reasonable price, very comfortable and completely up to date room and luxurious bathroom... More

I'd been to Naples before and stayed both in a private home and at the La Playa Resort, just down a few doors from Vanderbilt Beach Resort. Vanderbilt Beach Resort was a surprisingly affordable, yet luxurious choice of hotel for our last night in Naples. You can't get much better with the beachfront here nor with the Turtle Club Restaurant... More

Spent a week at this resort, couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. Very comfortable beds and extremely clean. Having the Turtle Club restaurant on the property was a huge bonus, amazing food!!. Would recommend for couples or for families. Beach facilities were world class!

Stayed at this hotel for five nights this past week in a gulfside suite with my husband and son. Granted it is very cost effective compared to the Ritz and La Playa, but still is not cheap and for the price we were very disappointed in the lack of amenities. The room was very very tired with stains on the... More

This place was an unbelievable find. My wife and I booked a condo at VBR after we were unable to get accommodations at a nearby hotel. We figured it would be "OK" as it was on the beach.
