My husband and I just returned from 5 nights at the Ritz. We had a wonderful time. The Ritz property is well-maintained and beautiful. Here are the cons and pros:
Pros: Beautiful pool, Beach is nice and has a great view of St. Johns, Resort is away from the cruise ship hustle/bustle, great (but expensive) cocktails, very nice hotel gym, comfy beds, spacious rooms with nice decks.
Cons: there were kids everywhere and they pretty much took over the pool -- my husband and I didn't care, but if someone is looking for a kids-free vacation, this is not the place; there is no coffee/bagel bar for breakfast - you are forced to eat at the restaurant. My husband and I don't like such a big breakfast, so we ended up stocking up on yogurts at the nearby market. Lunch was very overpriced and just fair - I got a salad and there were only about 4 leaves of lettuce. We thought Sangrias (which is walkable) was better for lunch (and breakfast) and walkable from the RItz.
All in all - we would definitely return. The island is a delight. We would likely bring our kids next time!
