Experience our unique amenities that enhance our beachfront location. 

Beautiful White Sand Beach. Vanderbilt Beach stretches approximately five miles along the Gulf of Mexico from Clam Pass to Wiggins Pass. Stroll along the beach, swim or snorkel in the Gulf's gentle waters, sunbathe on the beach, or fish for local snook that school just offshore in the summer. However you choose to enjoy it, the beach is a never ending delight.

Beach Service. Our beach attendants will help you relax with full beach service, including beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, drink tables and drink service on the beach. You may even want to try your hand at our"Ringmaster" Bimini Ring Game to see if you can join the hall of fame.

Stand Up Paddleboard & Watersports. We are one of the best Stand Up Paddleboard destinations in the country!  We offer PAU HANA paddleboards for rent right at the hotel so that you can enjoy this new sport and cruise the Gulf with the dolphins or ride its gentle waves. We can also help you book fishing charters, sailing trips or other water excursions with our water sports business partners. Our beachside hospitality is second to none!

Heated Pool. Our heated swimming pool, situated right next to the beach, is a hit with kids and adults alike. Curl up with a favorite novel in a lounge chair by the pool. In the winter, the pool offers a balmy alternative to the sometimes cooler, winter Gulf temperatures.

Complimentary Bikes. We have several cruiser bikes that we offer our guests free of charge.  Explore the Vanderbilt Beach or Pelican Bay areas by bike, or take a day trip to the beaches at Wiggins Pass State Park, Clam Pass Park, or Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs.

On-Site Restaurant. Don't miss our award winning Turtle Club Restaurant for a sunset cocktail, relaxed lunch in the sand, or the casual fine dining coastal cuisine that has made the restaurant famous with both locals and visitors alike. 

Stay Connected. If you need to check e-mail or (gasp!) do some work on your laptop during your stay with us, you may use our free wireless internet to surf the web to your heart's content. Forgot to bring your computer? No problem - our iMac is available in the front office for our guests to stay in touch with the world or print boarding passes.

We also offer free daily newspaper service if you want to reconnect with what's going on in the world. Stop in our front office to pick up your paper in the morning, enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee and a pastry and chat with our staff about the weather. No worries here!

Boat Docks. Coming to the Resort by boat? No problem. We are one of the few properties in Naples that has its own boat docks. These docks are available on a first-come, first-served basis for our guests who want to take advantage of Naples phenomenal boating conditions by bringing their own boat.

Tennis & Pickleball Court. Our tennis/pickleball court has the best view in town! Learn to play pickleball, the newest racquet sport craze, on our court that overlooks Vanderbilt Lagoon.

We go there for a weekend getaway at least once a year and are never disappointed. The beach is right there, steps from your room, as is the pool. Turtle Club restaurant is excellent for lunch and dinner. They run a great deal in the off-season which includes a dinner… and a lunch… and a choice of one of several activities. Beach chairs and towels included also.
