This is a fantastic property. I was there for business and enjoyed everything from the room, the food, the facilites etc. The service was great - nothing bad to report. My only complaint was I happened to be in the VERY end room of the hotel and all the business activities were on the other end of the property. So... More

We stayed here for five nights in July and it was the best. From the food to the flowers to the yoga classes it was great. The beach is very special and the attention to detail is wonderful. All of this and not that much more expensive that other beach front hotels.

My stay was as expected for a Ritz-Carlton-comfortable, great service, clean room, striking location situated on a cliff above the Pacific. The food was pretty good, everything else was outstanding. It was a nice stay.

We stayed as a family for 3 nights in March and had the best time. We arrived early off a long flight from Brisbane and they let us check in early. We relaxed so much we did not want to leave to go to Disney! The team in the club lounge are excellent Penny, Gaby and Mercedes were superb. Penny... More

This property is not brand new, but the grounds are immaculate and beautifully landscaped. The pool areas are clean and well groomed. The staff could not be nicer and they are always trying to make you feel comfortable. Yes, the food and drinks are pricey, but if you don't want them, they go to a grocery store and get your... More

We spent a couple nights at this beautiful Ritz Carlton. From the beginning of our stay to the end it was great. The service and accommodations were fantastic. The rooms were clean and roomy. The views were outstanding. With a nice walk to the beach the hotel provides chairs, umbrellas, towels and water bottles. They have a shuttle to take... More

Because of the service issues I had during my stay I gave this resort a poor. Why? Where do I start? Once again I have had issues with this particular Ritz. This year they have disappointed me again.

We stayed at the Ritz June 15-21 of 2014. We loved rooms 4012 and 4014 that joined on the consierge (fourth) floor. We were appreciative of the rooms. They kept the adjoining room vacant, at our request, for a couple of days until our son and mother came and were ensconsed in it. The ladies serving on the floor and... More

I am lucky enough to get to travel with my husband when he has a business trip somewhere worth me taking time to go, and the location of this Ritz Carlton is great.

This was my first stay at a Ritz-Carlton and it lived up to its name. I've stayed at other 5 star hotels but never received the service that I received at this hotel. We plan on making the Rtiz our hotel of choice and have already booked Naples, FL next month.
