The Ritz-Carlton Naples’ Rankings
- #1 Best for Sun
When it comes to keeping kids happy, this luxury hotel chain is hard to beat. The Ritz-Carlton Naples’ beachfront property on Florida’s Gulf Coast is the ideal place for families with children of all ages; it is easily accessible and features two outdoor pools (one just for families), a lap pool, and an endless array of activities. The rooms are spacious (with many featuring balconies), and you’ll find eight different dining options to choose from (casual beachside grill, fine dining, a sushi bar, and more!). Best of all, kids will be enthralled by the hotel’s interactive, environmental “Nature’s Wonders” program, which is housed in a separate center full of colorful aquariums, a science lab for young marine biologists, and a Nature Vision Theater.
