Ritz-Carlton, Naples Review

This is a regal Ritz-Carlton, with marble statues, antique furnishings, and 19th-century European oil paintings, and a short stroll from the lobby is a beautiful white-sand beach dense with seashells. Given the graciousness of the staff, you quickly get over the incongruity of traipsing through the gorgeous lobby in flip-flops, clutching a plastic bag of beach finds. In the rooms, the comforts of home prevail—assuming your home is a palace. The elegant spa is one of the Ritz-Carlton brand's first and largest, offering a complete (and divine) menu of indulgences. The resort has seven restaurants (sushi bar and lobby lounge tapas bar among them), the museum-quality Nature's Wonder center with aquariums and colorful environmental exhibits geared toward kids, and an uber-cool electronics gaming room.

    Ritz-Carlton, Naples Review

    We had a terrible time here. We were given double beds when we ordered a king. The $25 daily valet parking is ridiculous as are the long waits for the car. Also, there are no coffee makers in the rooms. We were told we could rent one for $25. $25? The rooms were small and the management was non-responsive. Pass this hotel by. It's not the Ritz Carlton of other locales.
