How it Ranks: LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort ranks #4 out of 88 Naples Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Naples.

Our Take: You won't have to catch a shuttle to the beach at this aptly named Naples hotel ("La Playa"means "the beach" in Spanish) — many of the 189 airy rooms offer picture-perfect ocean views. When you're lounging on the sands, take advantage of LaPlaya's beach butler service: Dedicated attendents will bring you everything from cold drings to towels This whimsically designed property also boasts its own 18-hole golf course, a major perk for the golfing set. And when it comes time to refuel, grab your special someone and head to the in-house restaurant, BALEEN. Many visitors describe the ambiance this eatery as "romantic", but the seafood-laden (albeit pricey) menu is what really gets hearts pumping. And after a long day on the course and a hearty meal, you can enjoy a decadent cocktail at LaPlaya's beachside fire pit. Or, settle in to one of the property's guest rooms, which are dressed in bright, floral decor and come equipped with furnished balconies, pillow-top mattresses and high-speed Internet access. You'll find LaPlaya — a member of the boutique Noble House family — along Vanderbilt Beach.
