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

We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island for three nights and cannot say enough about the resort. We had a fabulous package that gave us a $500 room credit to be used for anything on the resort, so we used it mostly for our meals, which made our stay virtually all inclusive. Our choice each night was to eat outside... More

Lovely beach. Love the plantations, trees, moss and the general feel of this region of the country. The hotel is I'm guessing near 20 years old and spotless but seems like it's showing it's age. Perfect service with a smile always. Can't say anything other then it's the Ritz.

There are higher expectations when you stay at a Ritz Carlton Hotel than a Courtyard by Marriott. Unfortunately, early on in our visit these expectations were not met. However, to the hotel's staff's credit, they never stopped trying to recover and please. If Ritz/Marriott now has mobile check-in. why can't they text their guests, if the room assigned is NOT...

Okay, it's a Ritz so there are some things you can almost always count on - attentive staff, luxurious décor, comfortable rooms, somewhat inflated prices, etc. and this Ritz is no exception. Unfortunately it wasn't flawless and at the Ritz I expect flawless. There were a couple of problems that just weren't handled well. The maid service skipped over our... More

Commendations to the staff, service is top-notch and friendly. We were offered to upgrade to a suite and I am so happy we did. Two rooms and a large dressing hallway and 3 bathrooms! This resort is gorgeous and there are so many fun activities for the kids such as searching for shark teeth and a talking macaw. We loved... More

Fantastic overall. Great staff, people like Robert at the front desk made sure that all our needs were met. It's people like him that make this property feel like your home away from home. We've been at this property several times and hope to visit it again in the near future.

First off, the service is in line with the Ritz carlton brand and the entire staff is to be commended on this. The rooms are hospitable, clean and every room has at least a partial view of the ocean. This hotel touts itself as a family resort, so the fact that they provide a fridge without the mini bar contents(which... More
