What are you waiting for? Start your Florida beach vacation getaway right now. We can’t wait to welcome you to the Vanderbilt Beach Resort in Naples, Florida.

The Vanderbilt Beach Resort - Our Story
Three Generations Of Gracious Hospitality!
The Vanderbilt Beach Resort has been welcoming guests and their families for over fifty years.  We are a small family owned and operated hotel located only a few steps from the Gulf of Mexico on Vanderbilt Beach in Naples, Florida.  Since Robert Moore first purchased the hotel in 1968, when it was the only motel on Vanderbilt Beach, the Moore family has extended its legendary gracious hospitality to thousands of guests, many of whom have become lifelong friends.  Robert's son, Mike Moore, has operated the resort since 1976 and Mike’s son, Mick Moore, is now the third generation of the Moore family to take the reins and continue a long tradition of laid-back hospitality.

Naples has changed since 1968, as it has become a well-known travel destination. But our hotel’s philosophy has remained the same: to allow our guests to relax and recharge, to encourage our quietly friendly staff to get to know our guests in order to serve them better, and to give our guests the opportunity to get to know one another. We believe in extending gracious hospitality to all of our guests, and many of our guests choose to return year after year to experience our hospitality.

In a busy world filled with indistinguishable chain hotels and impersonal service, the Vanderbilt Beach Resort remains an oasis of relaxation. Our facilities contribute to our laid back atmosphere.  We have only a small lobby, and all of our rooms open directly to the outdoors so that guests can relax on their porch and enjoy the view or go to and from the beach without having to walk through closed corridors or a fancy lobby.  Our rooms are some of the closest to the beach in Naples. This makes it easy to enjoy the beach during the day and our beautiful sunsets at the end of the day.  Once you check into the hotel, it is your choice whether you see our staff again. Your room is your own, and you can come and go as you please without having to walk past the front desk.  All of our rooms have a full sized refrigerator, microwaves, stovetops and glasses and utensils so that you can make yourself at home and are not forced to eat out for all of your meals.  But if you do want to eat out, the best beachfront restaurant in Naples, the Turtle Club, is only steps away, right on our property, and offers fine casual dining on the beach.

The Resort has retained the charm of the Old Florida of the past -- laid back, unassuming and relaxed – but it belongs squarely in the Florida of today with amenities like wireless internet, fine dining, beach chair and umbrella services, and world class shopping and dining only minutes away.   Top it off with courteous friendly service and you end up with a truly one of a kind resort that everyone can enjoy.

The Vanderbilt Beach Resort - Amenities

A Small Naples Florida Beach Hotel With Big Amenities!
We are pleased to offer a number of amenities to make your stay with us a unique and relaxing beachfront vacation.

First and foremost is our beautiful beach. Vanderbilt Beach is a beautiful white sand beach that stretches approximately five miles from Clam Pass to Wiggins Pass. Whether you decide to take a leisurely stroll along the beach to enjoy the sights, swim or snorkel in the Gulf's gentle waters, sunbathe on the beach, or fish for the local snook that school just offshore in the summer, the beach is a never ending delight.

In order to make your visit to the beach more relaxing and enjoyable, the Resort offers a full beach service which will provide you with beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, drink tables and drink service on the beach. You may even want to try your hand at our beachside "Ringmaster" bimini ring game to see if you can join the hall of fame.  We have three YOLO 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!

We also offer a heated beachfront infinity swimming pool and patio area for those who would prefer to swim or sunbathe poolside. The pool is great for kids and adults alike, and you can curl up in a lounge chair by the pool to catch up on reading your favorite novel. In the winter, the pool offers a balmy alternative to the sometimes cooler Gulf temperatures.

We have recently begun renting beach cruiser bikes right at the hotel.  So now you can explore the Vanderbilt Beach area or Pelican Bay by bike, or take a day trip ride to try out the beaches at Wiggins Pass State Park, Clam Pass Park, or Bonita Beach.

At the end of each day, be sure to stop in at our award winning Turtle Club Restaurant for a sunset cocktail or the casual fine dining coastal cuisine that has made the restaurant famous with both locals and visitors alike. After a "Green Flash" cocktail at the Turtle Club during sunset, you may want to take an evening stroll on the beach to enjoy the moon and the balmy breezes before taking a few steps to your room to retire for the evening. Be careful, the Turtle Club's menu can become addictive!

For our movie buffs and cinema afficionados, we offer DVD players in all of our rooms and we have a collection of DVDs satisfy just about everyone.

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

Although many of our guests like to forget about the outside world during their stay with us, we offer free daily newspaper service if you want to reconnect with what's going on in the world or keep tabs on your favorite stock. Stop in our front office to pick up your paper, grab a complimentary cup of coffee and chat with our staff about the weather. No worries here!

Want to come to the hotel by boat? No problem. The hotel is 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 exquisite boating conditions by bringing their own boat.
