The Ritz Carlton was a complete curates egg, good in parts, and some of those parts were very good. The problem was with the name because we expected the quality of a Ritz Carlton and not Butlins Ibiza.
We booked a club room, which was a saving grace, for the extra money it gave exclusive access to the club lounge, which provided complimentary food and drink 5 times a day. The hotel also said that the club lounge was not available to children under 12 years of age, but this was not enforced. The a la carte restaurants served excellent food but at very high prices. The hotel was isolated and had very good security, but that meant that outside restaurants a 15 minute taxi ride away.
Although there was a dedicated children's pool complex the pool by the club lounge was always occupied by screaming children, disturbing anyone wanting a quiet rest on a sun lounger. The sun loungers were also mainly in need of repair. the climax of this less than peaceful break was that at midday every day there was an aquaerobics class playing very loud disco music for an hour, even when retreating to the club lounge the music shook the building. The Ritz London would throw up its hands in horror
