Ritz-Carlton, Naples

280 Vanderbilt Beach Road
Naples, Florida 34108
(239) 598-3300

Here, bigger really is better — from its three-mile white sand beach and 51,000-square-foot spa to 450 ocean-facing rooms and 11 aquariums. What it lacks, it solves for: a Greg Norman-designed golf course is open to guests by shuttle at nearby sister property, the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort.

LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort

9891 Gulf Shore Drive
Naples, Florida 34108
(239) 597-3123

Classic Floridian style — colorful walls and prints, a scenic golf course and Planter’s Punch by the pool. Kids will have a blast, too, playing tug-o-war, surfing or gathering shells on the beach at the Aquatic Camp.

Naples Bay Resort

1500 Fifth Avenue South
Naples, Florida 34102
(239) 530-1199

Stay in a cottage — ideal for families and extended stays — or at the hotel, where every room overlooks the water. Certain ones are pet-friendly, offering pooches their own bed cushion so the whole family can get some rest.

Bellasera Hotel

221 Ninth Street South
Naples, Florida 34102
(239) 649-7333

The suites at this Mediterranean-style hotel feel like mini apartments, including kitchens, laundry rooms and balconies. Chic poolside cabanas conjure up la dolce vita, but there is also a free shuttle to the beach if you crave salt-water waves.
