Great property and hotel, except the food is so bad it is worse than Applebees. And 4 times as expensive. There is no where nearby the resort to eat, so be prepared to drive for dinner. It is too bad because it has potential to be great, other than the food. The food makes the overall experience a 5 out... More

This was our first stay at this Ritz. The staff was very friendly and helpful. One of the stores in the hotel was closed and they not only open it just for us but also left us alone and asked us to close it when we were done. The pool area and outdoor dining area were well run and very... More

This is my second stay at a Ritz-Carlton and I was not disappointed. Everything about the hotel is top notch. The staff leans over backwards to assist you. Each staff member I encountered had a smile on their face and seemed to be genuinely interested in making my stay enjoyable. One minor complaint would be with the TV stations available... More

I began staying at the Ritz Amelia Island 9 years ago with my wife as a romantic get-a-way. Since that time our trip has evolved to include our 3 children. Whether you're looking for romance or a family vacation, the Ritz Amelia Island will warm your heart. Over the years, we have become friends with many of the staff ("ladies... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island for 5 nights for an end of summer getaway and had an amazing time. The hotel is about 40 mins from the Jacksonville airport. Although we left our kids with their grandparents there is plenty to do for kids onsite. All the restaurants and amenities are great. We especially... More

From the moment we arrived until we checked out, we were treated like valued guests by the gracious and helpful staff without fail. Despite temperatures hovering around 100 degrees, none of them complained, including the pool staff that remained helpful and courteous throughout the sweltering days. The accommodations were spacious, comfortable, spotless and elegant. The hotel features a nautical theme... More

We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton last week. We had stayed at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples last year (Tiburon) and thought we were in for the same experience. We blame ourselves for not reading more reviews as we think we would have realized that this Ritz-Carlton REALLY caters to kids. We do not have anything against kids, but I really believe... More

Lovely comfortable short stay after checking out of Omni abruptly. Night and day change with change of hotels. Unfortunately no rooms with ocean view available on short notice but I could see a glimpse of ocean from room. The service and upkeep are impeccable. Only thing I would recommend is the hotel replace all of the beaten up beach lounge... More

This is our second time at the Ritz Carlton, Amelia Island, and likely the last. The hotel is nice and elegant, and physically up to Ritz standards. However, the staff has an "edge" for lack of a better term that needs to be addressed by management. We've stayed in many other Ritz Carlton hotels, and we have returned many times... More
