U.S. News Review

If you're looking for a more casual hotel than The Ritz-Carlton, Naples on Vanderbilt Road, consider booking at the homey-but-still-sophisticated Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, situated just a few miles inland. You'll sacrifice the outstanding ocean views of the other Ritz property, but for many, it's worth it to be closer to the 36-hole Tiburón Golf Club. Those who prefer not to spoil a good walk can spend their time here getting a massage at the in-house spa or sprawling out by the pool. Frequent guests also like the on-site Lemonía restaurant, which serves up regional American cuisine. And though the hotel may be devoid of any oceanfront rooms, the rooms overlooking the golf course are just as coveted. Rooms include private balconies, goose down comforters and European toiletries, not to mention high-speed Internet (for a fee) and iPod docking stations.
