After reading all the reviews of this property, I felt a little trepidation about staying there but our experience could not have been better. I agree with the commenter who advised that the condos are all individually owned and the experience may differ greatly. We booked through Sterling Resorts, which I recommend highly. We have used them several times and... More

Beautiful condo and very well equipped. However the parking was horrible and was not told we had to pay for the parking spot that belonged to condo. Elevators are a joke and the fire dept had to be called twice during our stay. The pool was okay, not enough chairs for amount if guest in complex.

Bwanapops, Owner at Ocean Ritz Condominiums, responded to this review

Condominium units are individually owned and managed. Unfortunately, lazy property managers and complacent owners can result in some poorly maintained units. Since Trip advisor does not seem to understand that vacation condominium resorts are not hotels unit reviews are lumped together, thus providing the traveling public inaccurate information. The trick to a happy vacation in a high rise condominium is... More

Dealing with David was very pleasant. He attempted to accommodate when he could..as our dates of occupancy we're not Sat-Sat. The view from the 9th floor condo is truly heavenly. Having said that there are issues that all should consider prior to renting: Parking is assigned but is very tight and awkward...if you have a large vehicle as we did,... More

Let me start by saying we really did like our 4br Condo... But we will never stay at the resort again. We paid $30 for parking passes to use over the 4 days.. The Parking in the place is terrible! After we used our one parking spot in the deck we were told to use the overflow lot which stayed... More

Ocean Ritz is amazing! People just like to whine about things...as if their house is perfect. We stayed in unit 2101 and it was incredible. The units are big, clean and have amazing views. We never saw a security guard, so that issue has been resolved. There are only two elevators but that's all you need most of the time.... More

Our family stayed in unit 1203 for a week in June. There were 10 of us, my parents (both in their 60's), me and my hubby(40's), my brother and wife (30's) and 4 kids(16,9,9,4). The unit is 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. My parents and brothers family arrived around 5:00 on Sunday evening (against my advice, after reading the reviews)... More

We recently returned from a trip to PCB (4 adult couples stayed in unit 703). I'll be honest, for the price.. you really can't beat the place. Our group didn't run into any of the "elevator" or parking issues, but I could see where parking would be very tight had we visisted in June or July. The property manager was... More

We stayed in #401 from aug 3-aug 10. Perfect location with horrible parking, less than average housekeeping, and horrible security guards. Security guard (Peter) should be terminated by the home owners association. He personally made more than half of our stay very unpleasant. So bad that we dreaded to walk from our condo door to our vehicle on the chance... More

When we arrived we waited 30 minutes on the elevator. We made 1 trip up the stairs to the 15th floor. We were told that we had 2 parking spaces and actually had 1. Had to pay to park the other car. The parking spaces were so tight that my pick-up truck would not fit anyway. We stayed 1 week... More
