Take a look at the best kid-friendly hotels in Naples.
Located in the heart of 5th Avenue, the 119-room Inn on Fifth is a boutique option that is as glitzy as its surroundings. Rooms are upscale and stylish, with a sophisticated black-and-white color scheme and pops of red, and great amenities such as iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. The serene rooftop pool deck is a favorite for a quiet day in the sun, and the spa offers signature massages in a luxurious space with wooden floors and a soothing earth-tone palette. There are two excellent restaurants on-site, but breakfast is only served in the Club Level lounge, which is off-limits to guests staying in the main building. Those looking for a more family-friendly hotel may prefer the Naples Bay Resort, located a five-minute drive away.
The Doubletree Suites Hotel in Naples is a step above other hotels in its price range. From the grand lobby with high ceilings and chandeliers to the homey-feeling suites with wrought-iron headboards and bright walls, this hotel seems resort-like and relatively upscale, despite its location just off of a busy street (unfortunately, some suites look out onto the parking lot). The clean, secluded pool area sits right above a nature preserve, and the fitness center is small but modern, featuring cardio machines with attached TVs. Freebies such as Wi-Fi and parking are nice extras, as are the two on-site restaurants (one with outdoor seating).
The 454-room Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa is a luxury resort in an upscale neighborhood a five-minute drive to Estero Bay. Contemporary rooms have a host of amenities, including private balconies, iPod docking stations, mini-fridges, and flat-screen TVs, while some also offer Estero Bay views, personal concierges, free continental breakfast, and Club Lounge access. The three outdoor pools, hot tub, and private beach are a highlight, along with several restaurants and bars. A full-service spa, 18-hole golf course, sports equipment rentals, and several 24/7 services are also available. However, there is a mandatory daily resort fee and pets have rules and fees. Check rates at the nearby Hyatt Coconut Plantation, a luxurious property with lush grounds and a lazy river.
The 85-room upscale Naples Bay Resort and Marina is something like a small Italianate resort city, with a marina and bay at its center, and a sophisticated European vibe that feels many miles away from its beachy Naples surroundings. The grounds are huge, with three restaurants, five pools -- including an adults-only lap pool and a lazy river -- plus a tennis center, enormous fitness center, and full-service spa. There's a free shuttle for local destinations. Guest rooms are spacious and classic, with private balconies, while suites offer full kitchens and, in some cases, marina views. With its close proximity to popular Fifth Avenue, an array of sophisticated on-site features, and a kids' club, this is a great option for families seeking an elegant Naples getaway. Expect to pay a daily resort fee.
Hyatt Residence Club Bonita Springs, Coconut Plantation is an upscale timeshare resort set in lush landscaped grounds bordering a golf course. The 108 guest suites are spacious and designed for long stays with fully equipped kitchens and living and dining spaces; while decorated to a high standard, they show some wear and tear. There are four outdoor swimming pools on-site as well as a 1,000-foot-long lazy river ride. And the property offers access to an exclusive private island beach shared with the nearby Hyatt Regency. Since this is a timeshare property rather than a luxury resort, 24-hour service is not available, and the on-site restaurants close in the early evening -- so having a car helps. Travelers looking for a more full-service experience should consider the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, just one mile down the road, though rates reflect the boost in amenities.
This hotel was impacted by Hurricane Irma in September 2017. We will update our review as soon as we have more information. The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples is a 295-room, five-pearl property with a Mediterranean style located about a 10-minute drive from the beach. For those who can afford its high rates, the property offers VIP service and plenty of luxe amenities, including a golf club with two PGA-level courses. The heated outdoor pool, spa with treatments for golfers, and two restaurants make this a good option for golf enthusiasts, as well as families who don't want to leave the resort confines. Top-notch rooms and suites have balconies, premium movie channels, and marble bathrooms -- but no free Wi-Fi. Sand-seekers may prefer the Naples Grande Beach Resort, which offers a similar array of amenities plus a beachfront.
The Best Western Naples Inn & Suites is not quite what one would expect from a budget chain hotel: tropical gardens complete with koi ponds, lend a boutique hotel atmosphere to daily activities like eating breakfast and swimming. For its size, the hotel offers an impressive setting with two pools and two hot tubs, mini golf, and a lovely outdoor patio. There are Standard Rooms with flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges, Suites with cozy seating areas, and Apartments with full kitchens; some have patios overlooking the pool. The hotel is within walking distance of a supermarket, and a short drive from beaches, Naples Pier, and downtown. It beats out the prices of beachside hotels, which can be twice the rate per night, but the rooms here could use a refresh.
Set along a seven-mile strip of white sandy beach, the 125 rooms here -- each with a kitchenette that has a coffeemaker and full-sized fridge though no stove -- are designed to hold between four and six people. The units are laid out like small condominiums, with pull-out couches and separate living rooms in most. The beach-view rooms are especially pleasant, guests say, while there are also complaints that some of the non-renovated rooms contain shabby furniture. Two heated outdoor pools, one large and one small, buffer the hotel from the beach, and the property sits within walking distance of convenience stores and restaurant options.
The five-pearl Ritz-Carlton, Naples is a true luxury resort in a spectacular private beachfront setting. For those who can afford the steep rates, it offers VIP service and a top-notch array of amenities. Its 420 guest rooms are elegant and stylish, but not overly luxurious or opulent, with 42-inch flat-screen TVs, minibars, iPod docs, terrycloth robes, and marble bathrooms with Asprey bath products. Many units have private balconies with waterfront views. Among the hotel's excellent lineup of features include two large pools (one that’s adults-only), a massive spa and and fitness center, and seven dining options. Travelers looking to spend a bit less but still want an upscale stay on the beach can consider the luxury Naples Grande Beach Resort.
The grounds of Hilton Naples hotel conjure those of an ‘80s-inflected Spanish villa -- grandiose, with a few dated touches. Guests comment that the beds in the 199 rooms are comfortable and the amenities, which include a large fitness center and fairly pricey steakhouse, generally outweigh the inconvenience of the property’s distance from the beach and slightly outmoded aesthetic. There’s also free shuttle service to the beach with free towels, lounge chairs, and water. The hotel is situated a short walk from a luxury pedestrian shopping mall as well.
This 124-room Holiday Inn Express is a good mid-range option right outside of Downtown Naples. Clean and spacious rooms feature updated, modern decor, while suites have even more space with separate living rooms and kitchenettes. The free breakfast offers a range of tasty options, including a pancake machine, though the dining area can get crowded. The hotel also has a beautifully landscaped outdoor pool area, a small fitness center, business corner, and meeting facilities. There's a handful of restaurants and shops in the surrounding area, though Downtown Naples is about a five-minute drive from here. Travelers seeking something closer to the Downtown area might want to consider the Bayfront Inn 5th Ave, which has similar rates, but is not as modern.
The Hawthorn Suites of Naples is a mid-range, all-suite complex set on well-tended grounds that's about 20 minutes from the heart of Naples. The 82 suites are spacious and include kitchens and separate bedrooms, making them ideal for longer-term stays, though decor is somewhat dated and shows wear in places. Freebies include breakfast, happy hour drinks, parking, and Wi-Fi. The hotel has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub plus basketball courts and a fitness room. For a similar hotel closer to the action travelers might want to check out the Inn of Naples, which has similar rates.
The Naples Grande Beach Resort is a huge upscale beach and golf resort set in mangroves lining Florida's Gulf Coast. Most of the 474 classically decorated rooms and suites are located in the main 18-story building, and those on higher floors have lovely views of the Gulf. There are also 50 Garden Villas out in the grounds, near the Hibiscus Hideaway lap pool. The resort offers a huge array of features for families, couples, and convention delegates, including three pools (one with a huge waterslide), a spa with its own separate villa for group spa treatments, a huge array of indoor and outdoor meeting space, multiple bars and restaurants, a big fitness center, and 15 tennis courts. While it's really at the top of its game in terms of facilities, travelers looking for something more intimate may want to consider the Hyatt Coconut Plantation instead.
The Inn at Naples is a 99-room, mid-range property offering clean, modern accommodations that are quite affordable compared to nearby hotels. Guest rooms are spacious and colorful, with balconies, mini-fridges, and flat-screen TVs. With free continental breakfast and parking, an outdoor pool, and a pretty entranceway with colorful flowers and palm trees, the hotel provides a comfortable home base for tourists. A no-hassle hotel, it's in close proximity to points of interest such as the beach, downtown Naples, 5th Avenue South, and the zoo. The fitness center is very small, and there's no on-site dining other than breakfast.
The 33-room Charter Club
Resort of Naples Bay is a mid-range time-share property on Naples Bay with
restaurants, shops, and the Von Liebig Art Center, a 15-minute walk away. Spacious two-bedroom, two-bathroom condos have fully-equipped kitchens, flat-screen TVs, wet bars,
and washers/dryers as well as screened-in porches. Some have beautiful water
views, but decor is a bit dated and there is no housekeeping. The two outdoor pools and hot tub are
waterfront with exceptional views and there is a poolside Tiki hut serving lunches and snacks. This property has a mandatory daily resort
fee and the front desk closes early in the evening. For an extra $40 per night, Naples Bay Resort has five pools and a lazy river, nicer rooms, and daily housekeeping.
