This is a return visit after about twenty years. The hotel is beautiful. My room was in perfect condition, and I can't understand why people think the hotel needs to be renovated. The food, for the most part was good, and the staff, for the most part, were lovely. There were some service failures, and over five days they added... More

Well I had to work, but I am not complaining because who would not want to work at the ritz Carlton. Loved the staff everyone was great, and always spoke when passing by. The room was perfect, I didn't have any doubts that the room would be clean, it was like home. The pool area was well maintained, loved the... More

One of the nicest places I have ever been fortunate enough stay. Looking out your balcony at the beach, hearing the waves come ashore. Service that is second to none. Fine dining if that is what you are looking for or dining in a little more laid back atmosphere. The food in all the restaurants is just out of this... More

We recently stayed one night at this property on our way to another destination. With two children, the pool is always important to our family. Unfortunately, there was a large convention at the hotel while we wee there and there was not a lounge chair available at the pool. Not one. We were added to a list that they would... More

Good afternoon Leigh H, Thank you for sharing your feedback from you recent visit. I was disappointed to hear of the opportunities you faced with finding a chair at the pool and waiting for your car in valet. It is our goal to provide exceptional service and product, and I apologize we let you down in some of these areas.... More

While I enjoy nice vacations, I don't like being taken advantage of. Paying $15 for a basic cocktail by the pool is offensive. Also, the pool at this resort destination is too small for the amount of rooms and so they have a rule that you will be removed from you chairs if you leave them for more than 45... More

Traveled here on a business trip in May and had a great experience. The room was nice, but the most impressive part was the bathroom! Very nice and exceeded expectations. All rooms have a ocean view, some better than others. The beach was nice and the Spa was pricey, but AMAZING! I am wanting to go back just for another... More

The hotel's nickel and dime policies drove us crazy. We have stayed at properties all over the world and were baffled at how dated the property's charging policies came across with the extra charges for ridiculous items. What do I mean? This a property that can easily charge you 400+ a night for a room and they should just increase... More

We just returned from a conference held at this hotel and were delighted with what we found. The hotel itself is a classic R-C. It has impeccable service and pays attention to every detail and amenity a guest could need. Examples: many gluten free options at the restaurants (servers actually tell you about them without prompting), the staff will make... More

We picked the Ritz because, from our experience, it does not disappoint. We are usually willing to pay the extra dollar because of how pleasant it is. The Ritz in Amelia Island is an exception. Pros: Beautiful hotel and grounds. Spacious, clean rooms. The people are very nice, and the food was very good. Cons: This particular Ritz has turned... More

My family and I spent three days at this hotel. We were amazed at how after all of these years of coming, the staff still manages to out do themselves. Our bellman sent a bag of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies along with a card to the room. I requested a sample of their signature pecans and boys received a... More
