The unit had everything that we needed for the week including a full kitchen and screened in porch. This resort has been in the area for many years. It is somewhat dwarfed by the larger complexes. This added to...

We ended up here because we were in Florida on business just before Blizzard 2016 hit at home. After two or three flight cancellations, we forgot about going home and decided to check out Naples FL. Found this place on TripAdvisor (thanks!). VBR (as they call it) is a classic family resort (although not too many kids) where people come...

We loved the Vanderbilt Beach Resort in Naples. Our room was very big and very nice. We were in the main building and there were two other buildings across the street. Our two-night stay came with free breakfast, which we ate outside on tables overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Our package came with $27 per person for dinner at...

We absolutely love the VBR. Our family live nearby, so we have spent the last five Christmases enjoying this very pleasant, old-Florida style hotel. It's our home away from home, with the same crew every year welcoming us and remembering us the minute we arrive. The beach is fantastic (there's drink service, and the chairs and umbrellas are free for...
