We have stayed here multiple times for business purposes. The Ritz Carlton Sarasota is a great destination. Enjoy the venue! Slow down your pace and enjoy the beautiful amenities such as the Beach Club, the water equipment, the Fitness Center, etc. Water is freely given out poolside, in the fitness center as well as the doormen. Infused water is also... More

Rooms aren't impressive and drainage in the sinks and bathtub are really bad. Room was unmade upon arrival. Service in the restaurant was slow and inattentive. I agree with the previous reviewer that draw backs include distant locations for beach club and golf course. You either have to drive or take their shuttle to the beach club. The beach club... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota but the unusual nature of having to drive or take a bus to their beach club is the only drawback. It's not too far, but why didn't Ritz-Carlton place the hotel above the wonderful Beach Club instead of reserving that space for pricy condos? The pool at the hotel location is fairly... More

Wonderful property in Sarasota area. We enjoyed a nice weekend and the signature Ritz attention to details during our short stay. From welcome cookies in the room to toys for the younger guest. The beach club although packed on a Saturday afternoon was very nice and a good compliment to the main hotel.

We visited for 12 nights in July . On arrival we were a little disappointed that the club room we usually upgrade to was now £100 extra per night and that there was now a 'resort fee' of $24 per day, any way we love the hotel and club level so we just agreed and went for a drink in... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times, but I must say that this visit was better than all those in the past. It is clearly apparent that the staff have really stepped it up. The service has been excellent, from the restaurants to the car valets, they are all very friendly and cannot be more helpful. The concierge could... More

This is the most expensive property in the Sarasota area. While the service is good (not great), the rooms are seriously in need of renovation. While not quite shabby, they are clearly dated, both in terms of their decor and their technology. However, the biggest problem is food service. Like many of today's hotels, it has only one restaurant, Jack... More

What a great 3 day vacation. The hotel was beautiful with service that cannot be beat. The staff treated us like we were family---even remembering us by name. The rooms were nicely appointed and had great views from the terrace. I usually don't eat meals in hotels and go to local restaurants. I did both on this trip and can... More

Living in Florida on the east coast, sometimes you just want to get away in the summer - but island getaways for us are not appealing when you live in the tropics 365 days a year - but a quick drive to the west coast of the state takes you far enough away without the hassle and just enough relaxation...
