Average Rating for this Community

Lely Resort has been a dream come true for us! We've been here almost a year now and it's exceeded our expectations all around. The outdoor swimming pool is my favorite and my husband plays golf numerous times every week.
Our home is gorgeous and we have a beautiful pool! We were not interested in downsizing because we wanted plenty of room for our kids and grandkids when they visit. The house is perfect for us and we get lots of compliments from our friends when they visit.
The community is very well maintained and the landscaping is beautiful. I especially love the fountains and water features. It's so nice to just drive through and admire everything! The amenities are really resort-like and offer everything you could want, all close to home.


Lely is awesome. My favorite neighborhood in Naples. The pool is awesome and the food and waitstaff are great! Tons of friendly people!
