I have stayed at this property a number of times in the last few years and every single time I am delighted with the amenities and the service. Great place for families. The kids club is superb. The pool is nice, though not large and the service at the pool is good. The access to the beach is direct with... More

The Ritz-Carlton is the premier hotel chain in the world. I feel they are in a class by themselves. There are luxury hotels, and then there is the Ritz-Carlton. The service is consistently exceptional, the properties are always photo quality, and the Ritz spares no expense when it comes to the comfort of their guests. I've enjoyed every Ritz-Carlton property... More

We truly enjoyed our stay. The service is amazing! Our room was beautiful and clean; the hotel and grounds are beautifully maintained. We enjoyed the pools, beach, room service and restaurants. I loved seeing people and families having a grand time whether it was in the pool, at the beach, playing frisbee on the lawn or dancing in the lounge.... More

We always wanted to stay at The Ritz Amelia Island, now we have and won't do it again. The room was nice, beds weren't great, bath was super. Housekeeping arrived anywhere from 3 until 5:30 to make up the room, then reappeared a few hours later for turn down. The price you pay for everything is because of the name,... More

Dear Elaine H, Thank you for sharing the feedback from your recent stay with us here at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. I was excited to hear about your dining experience at Salt - it truly is a wonderful restaurant. I was disappointed to learn of some of the service and product shortfalls with housekeeping and your bed. Our goal is... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island. The grounds are beautiful with a great private beach and a beautiful pool area. In the summer in Florida there are frequent (but usually brief) afternoon thunderstorms. The Ritz also has an indoor pool which was so great with the kids even if a thunderstorm popped up and they didn't... More

... but when your experience just trying to make a reservation is as bad as this, I think it deserves special mention. I reserved a room at the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island for September, in a wedding block. Not cheap, but of course this is the R-C Amelia Island and you're supposed to get what you pay for....So. For the "bargain"... More

The hotel isn't nearby anything particularly interesting, which was surprising. Plan to stay on the resort or drive to quaint Fernandina Beach for a nice meal and cute shops. Lovely property, but I never saw the world class service Ritz is known for. It was just ok. Slow check in. Mini bar and robe wasn't replenished (from prior residents) when... More

Great family hotel for a vacation with younger kids. Pools were always tested to make sure they were clean and there were poor toys for the kids. The pool area had plenty of umbrellas and lounging areas. The fire pits with the smores package was great but, pricey. The views were beautiful and the beach was outstanding and kept very... More

Spent three nights and were very pleased with the hotel, staff and amenities. Great ocean view, comfortable room and balcony, attentive and helpful staff. Last night dining on the patio was why you stay.

We have come to this hotel for the past two years as a part of a conference. The company sponsoring the event encourages the participants to bring the whole family. This is a resort built for such an event. The beach is beautiful, with the largest shells, clearest water and best surf (calm, but not flat) we saw among the... More
