When you break down our vacation at the Ritz Carlton, Puerto Rico there really are no bad parts. The staff was very good, room were great, housekeeping staff was professional, food was very good. But, if you put it all back together, this Ritz could be located anywhere in the world. I mean that it doesn't feel like you are on a island in Caribbean. Very vanilla, but a good vanilla. It would be exceptional if there was a shuttle between hotel and Old San Juan, if there were any place in the hotel to buy a few little snacks for the beach, if the beach was cleaned up at night rather than hoping the tide will take the garbage back to sea. It would be great if the pool was larger. It would be great if the 30's somethings didn't hang out at the volleyball net 24/7 monopolizing the entire pool. Can you put a net on the beach and move those people.
Literally, if I closed my eyes, I could be drinking a glass of wine at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta, Georgia and not know the difference. If this is the case, why not just put in a Marriott Courtyard. Not exceptional but very nice.
Take the bus outside of the Ritz for 75 cents, Old San Juan shuttle is free. Cabs are $21 just to get in the cab, so budget accordingly. Of course, if you have to ask...you can't afford it?
