Stayed at this hotel for five nights this past week in a gulfside suite with my husband and son. Granted it is very cost effective compared to the Ritz and La Playa, but still is not cheap and for the price we were very disappointed in the lack of amenities. The room was very very tired with stains on the...

We are disappointed that this guest did not have a pleasant and relaxing stay with us. We take great pride in the cleanliness and appearance of our property and our rooms and do our best to keep everything just right. We regularly act promptly to resolve any known issues and will do the same with the issues noted by this...

We wanted to be on the beach for 24 hours before leaving the beautiful warmth for the cold northeast and so happy we stayed at the Vanderbilt Resort. We were lucky our room was available to check in early (11am!) so we quickly got our things together and Sean got us set up with beach chairs and an umbrella so...

This place was an unbelievable find. My wife and I booked a condo at VBR after we were unable to get accommodations at a nearby hotel. We figured it would be "OK" as it was on the beach. When we arrive we were greeted by the afternoon desk clerk, Dave, who became our friend. Dave is friendly and knowledgeable. He...

We spent seven nights at the Vanderbilt in a Gulf Side Suite. The location was perfect, away from traffic, and located on the beach. From our room on the second floor we could view palm trees, pool, and the gulf. The room itself had everything we needed and we felt very much at home. We ate at the Turtle Club...

Having eaten at the restaurant here we had no hesitation in booking a 'room'. The standard of accommodation matched the standard of the restaurant - excellent!. Would recommend to anybody without hesitation. Could not fault in anyway.

I love the VBR and plan on coming back every year. We stayed there last year during the LPGA CME tournament and had a wonderful time. The Deluxe Condo was perfect and had everything we needed for entertaining our guests. The accommodations, views, service and follow up were above and beyond our expectations. We called to book again this year...

The location of the VBM is just perfect, close to everything (Shops, convenient store, Cinemaes, Bach). We stayed there in a small appartment 2 BR/2 Bathrooms and a kitchen. Still there was always a "but" when you think about it.... The appartment was nice, but old and worn-out. The walls hat spots, the bathroom had several problems with interiors that...

The property was beautiful with wonderful views, however front desk displayed terrible customer service skills. Arrived for 1:00 check in as clearly stated in a confirming email only to be told that 2:00 was the correct time. When shown the email, there were no apologies. We were simply told to go get a drink or something. Came back at 2:00...

We had stayed there many times, but the condos have been remodeled since we were there. It was very nice to see the new tile in the bathrooms, new tvs, and the new furniture. We had plenty of space for everyone to spread out, and we all enjoyed the patios where you could enjoy the scenery. There are places close...
