Our recent trip to the Ritz Carlton St. Thomas was, in a word, fine. The room was perfectly acceptable--cookie cutter Ritz Carlton (I could have been in Akron!), the beaches were lovely, two small, crescents with beautiful water and vistas (though the chairs were VERY close together), the bed was very comfy, the food was slightly under par--restaurant reservations didn't mean anything, the menus were limited and quality so-so, and the services seemed uninspired.
On our second morning I awoke to no water, and NOBODY appeared to know what was going on and when it would be rectified. There also was the elusive $65 per person/per day "resort fee." UGH! Just raise the room rate already--don't nickle and dime me!
I daresay the Ritz is probably the nicest place to stay on St. Thomas. Remove the sunshine and sea, however, and it's just another hotel--nothing terribly special or memorable...
