West Coast Florida Master Thread
« on: July 23, 2014, 05:55:41 PM »
Hi there,

Planning a vacation to the West Coast of Florida and looking into Naples or Fort Myers.

Has anyone stayed at the Naples Ritz-Carlton? What type of experience did you have there?

I've looked into the Waldorf, though reviews indicate it doesn't live up to the brand or compare to others (specifically Waldorf Orlando).

Thanks! Seems like a great place. And yes I did look it up to see if it was on beach and came away confused.

Found great info about it on flyertalk http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hyatt-gold-passport/133964-coconut-pointe-bonita-springs-fl-resort-review-master-thread.html (Interestingly enough, there was also confusion there about the location "It is very hard to tell from the online description if it is on a beach or 5 miles from a beach.").

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Anyone ever get food from Chabad of Bonita Springs? http://www.jewishbonita.com/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/271800
How about Chabad of Naples / Aroma Market? http://www.chabadnaples.com/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/1607951/jewish/Kosher-Food.htm
Chabad of Naples also says that Trader Joe's and Whole Foods have fresh chicken/meat and Publix has the same as well as oven-ready meals and a bakery. Has anyone tried any of this / can confirm its existence?
