Ardent golfers with a yen for luxury will find their dream vacation at Naples's most elegant golf resort where Ritz style prevails and service exceeds your wildest expectations. The lobby lounge is decorated in rich upholstery, with floor-to-ceiling views of manicured greens; the cigar bar next door is inviting, with its billiards and fireplace. All rooms were renovated in 2013; half have balconies with links views. The Rick Smith golf academy can help you polish your
skills, and you have access to the exclusive spa and other amenities of the nearby beachside Ritz-Carlton. The golf resort's kids program includes visits to its new Eye Wonders center, which focuses on all things celestial.

Having stayed at both Naples Ritz resorts, it all depends on what you are looking for; both are fabulous. The Golf Ritz has a very cozy, clubby, British West Indies feel; a bit more 'masculine' feel than the typical Ritz. Much quieter (and less expensive) than the Beach Ritz (except when filled by a convention). A shuttle brings you to the Beach Ritz, where you can use all the amenities. If you aren't going to splurge for an oceanfront room at
the Beach resort, may as well go for the Golf Ritz and just take the shuttle... But service at the Golf Ritz is just as perfect as at the Beach; sometimes better!

We have satyed at numerous Ritz hotels, and have been very pleased. The Ritz golf Naples is a disgrace to the chain. We called numerous times inadvance to arrange babysitters, and request rooms. Upon arrival, they had booked our requested room, and squeezed us into a room the size of a broom closet. They promised us babysitters, but could not deliver, leaving us eating room service every night and playing golf seperately so one of us could watch
the kids. Management apologized, but way after the fact. Spent an extraordinary amount to stay there, when we should have just gone to the real gem...the ritz beach resort. Never again!
