Overall: I think the two are comparable, with a few differences.

Room comfort: almost identical. There are some stylistic differences - Amelia is more Southern charm, while Naples is more "beachy" - otherwise the same and you'll get a good night sleep in both.

Bathroom: almost identical.

Pools are nicer in Naples. More chic. The pools aren't bad in Amelia, they're just a tad more dated.

Grounds/beach: the beaches are too different to compare. Naples has more Caribbean water...more clear. Amelia has East Coast water: very blue but you can't see your feet in .5 meter of water.

Food: comparable at both.

Soft product: comparable at both.

Overall I think both are comparable. The Amelia property is more dated, in my opinion, but is still a solid product. If you're just going to relax, laze around, have some drinks and sleep in, I'd recommend Amelia completely. The spa is great and so is the golf course.
