“Very pleasant, would return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for one night. It was very nice. It looks like an older Ritz property because of the decor but it was very well maintained. The beach, lobby area and restaurants were very nice. We would stay again.

My husband and I were celebrating out 7th wedding anniversary at this hotel. It was a much needed weekend get-away. Upon arrival, the consierge greeted us with champagne to celebrate our anniversary and there were chococlate covered strawberries in our room. We were so delighted. It made our anniversary that much more special. All the staffw as polite and pleasant. We enjoyed all the restaurants, and the fire pit outside on the patio. All in all, the Ritz made us feel right at home. Thank y ou!

I have stayed here 4 times since October just returning home from my most recent visit last Friday. I have not encountered any disappointments yet.

Wonderful ocean view rooms, clean rooms , plenty of towels, working Internet, good quality in room coffee and complimentary water. Courteous attentive staff. Have eaten in all the restaurants - food was always good and the staff lovely. Breakfast staff especially efficient even remembered what I liked from my last visit. Nice beach and interesting hotel shops. Check out the Mystique sandals in the boutique. The spa does great facials ask for Pattie. Enjoy.

Room Tip: If offered a coastal view room ask for one nearer the front as you will get a better view of the o...

My sister and I spent Labor Day weekend here. It's a lovely hotel with excellent service. We had a great time.

On a side note: it's a resort for families -- there were tons of children. The only night life was college kids playing pool. The main bar was dead before 11pm.

Went to take a shower at 8am Sunday and the water was tepid at first, then positively cold. This is a Ritz-Carlton for crying out loud. And the bathroom sink taps both ran hot water instead of hot & cold - when the water was hot, that is. The cold shower ruined the stay for me. The hotel is beautiful but if I have to take a cold shower because they cheaped out and didn't install sufficient hot water heaters for all the rooms, then I'll be staying somewhere else next time. And if that wasn't enough, the rooms are not well noise insulated. You can hear every word from guests out in the halls.

Room Tip: take your shower at night if you like hot water.

Beautiful property, great customer service, especially from Elaine R. at front desk. Excellent club level experience. Got lucky with the weather also.
The new "8" sports bar is terrific as well. Prime rib sliders are the best.

I love this hotel. It is like a wealthy friend's home and you are his or her special guest. The decor is elegant but homey and relaxing. I love the Christmas decorations. They are so tasteful yet festive. I look forward each year to seeing the gingerboat sailboat in the lobby. It's such a fun tradition.

Room was clean and pleasant, partial beach view, quiet and great bed. I must say I am not too fond of the new decor, though. A limey green accent wall and ugly new curtains. They should have stayed with the more elegant previous decor in my opinion. But I'm sure other people really like the decor. What matters is the service at this hotel, which is super. Each member of the staff makes you feel like a family member visiting their home. This is something special to this hotel that I love. Always a pleasure to come back to the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island!

Room Tip: A north tower room with a partial or full beach view is nice. Convenient to meeting rooms but still...
