This hotel seems to have lots of rooms, but not much in the way of public spaces. What's there is very ambient, with friendly service, but there's only a small lounge come bar area and the outside patio and pool area all seemed very tight for space. On the Maria side there is a nice balcony sera with low sofas and small fire pits, but two or three groups would take all the seats.
The restaurant is expensive, though the food is good. But with no bistro alternative, the $50 breakfasts mount up.
The bedrooms are plush, though a little tired. I had a lovely view from my higher floor room.
The staff were all excellent, friendly and very keen to ensure you were being well looked after.
But, it just didn't feel special enough to be a Ritz Carlton. So you probably are not going to feel it was worth the money you will have to splash because of the brand. It was a pleasant enough stay over 6 days but less than the price would make you expect.
It's also not well signposted from the road, with one small sign that is often obscured by parked cars.
