    LOVE THIS RESORT & SAD TO SAY GOODBYE

    We've been visiting this resort for 5 years now in late summer/early fall for a week's R & R as it truly is the best place to stay in Naples - beachfront hotel that has rooms steps from the beach if you choose the Penthouse Bldg., first floor, which we always do. However, this was likely our last stay there as apparently the resort has been sold and is scheduled for demolition/renovation in May 2021 and will be converted to residences/hotel. While the place does truly need to have the rooms updated and bathrooms renovated as well as other areas, it has been a beacon in Naples for decades and it's very sad to see the tremendously different plans ahead for this crown jewel of Naples which had always been owned and operated by the Watkins family. Our trip this time was awesome as it always is except for no room service due to the pandemic. Their food continues to be excellent no matter what you order, but we have always preferred room service so we really missed that on this visit. They're also the only hotel serving Starbucks coffee in the Seminole Café so that's also a huge plus for us. Michele is the Manager and she is great! We always make the reservations directly with the hotel so we know what room we are getting. Stewart & Kelly are great and very accommodating. Check-in was fast and easy, and Marcus was great. The issue that has always plagued this resort when we have visited is the TV reception. It seems every year, we have issues with the TV reception and we believe it's due to whatever satellite company they use for their service. But other than that, it really is the best place to stay in Naples and if you have the opportunity, try to enjoy it's last hurrah before they close down in May 2021.

    Beautiful Location

    My husband and I live nearby and we decided to treat ourselves to a long weekend on the beach. You can’t beat the location and picturesque settings aground the property. There are ample places to sit back and relax and just take in the scenery. The hotel is made up of different buildings and we stayed on the 7th floor in the Watkins building. The room and grounds are very well maintained and clean. I appreciated the bathrobe to be used during our stay as well as the updated TV. We also ate lunch at the Sunset Beach Bar & Grill and the food and service were great. We had breakfast at HB’s on our morning out and that was fantastic. There’s a small convenience store located in the front lobby with snacks and Starbucks coffee. However, they close early, so be mindful of that. My only three complaints were with the coffee pots in the rooms, the charge for the beach chairs and umbrellas, and the bars. We are paying a decent amount of money to stay here, so I feel that the beach chairs and umbrellas should be offered to us, free of charge. It was $20 a day. Also, the coffee pots in the room are anything but usable. They’re very old tiny pots that have these odd shaped filters that are only good for a single cup. You wouldn’t be able to bring coffee from home. You’d have to use what was provided. It’s a HUGE plus for me to be able to start my day with some coffee before getting ready to go out. Lastly, there are two bars near the beach and pool but the drinks are CRAZY expensive and I don’t think there’s hardly any alcohol in them at all. I eventually stopped ordering drinks because I was paying $13 or $14 for a drink that was made up of mostly juice. Both bars were similar in this area. ☹️ I would recommend that you bring your own drinks and leave them in your mini fridge.

    25th wedding anniversary

    When we checked into our room, we were not very happy..however the resort itself is beautiful. Pools were fantastic. Bars and restaurants very good. Loved the Tiki umbrella and lounge chairs (had to pay). We chose to save on ocean front room and used xtra money on chairs and umbrella daily :) The room is beyond outdated. No closet and very small dresser. Had an armoire with 6 hangers. We paid a great rate thru Expedia and had a wonderful time!

    Best Wedding Ever

    I attended the Hotel for my best friend's wedding, Which had gotten moved several times due to COVID even with all the craziness that is going on the service was incredible and outstanding. Jessica who was the wedding planner did such a gorgeous job with capturing my best friend dream wedding there were some hiccups along the way but Jessica was always around providing with assistance. Jessica is the best, super sweet and caring. The hotel was quiet and relaxing even if we were having a blast the night before, celebrating her last day as a Single women. We had to call front desk a couple of times during the night because of one of our family member door wouldnt open and to ask for blankets. They answered super fast and provided with assitance right away. I was amazed at the great services we had during that weekend. The best part is that the Beach its super clean and water is clean no algaes. Overall a HUGE thank you to JESSICA for making my best friends wedding a dream come true.
