This was our first time staying at a Ritz-Carlton. Generally, luxury hotels are out of our price range by choice. That is, our philosophy is that we stay in a place, not a hotel. I picked this hotel, however, because through trip advisor I found a special all inclusive price, so I sprang for it. Okay, now I think we are ruined for life. It was very special and worth every penny. I may have felt differently, however, if I had to pay for breakfast, parking and internet. These were included, so great deal.
The staff is exceptional. All do their upmost to assist their guests. Granted, the first week of December is a slow one, but the service was excellent--from the time we drove up, to the bellman who gave us all the details of the room, to moment they they drove our car up and help us load to leave.
We had a coastal view room. Beautiful room with balcony. Gorgeous bath in Carrara marble.
Wonderful breakfasts in the Cafe and a very special dinner in Salt, the 5 star restaurant.
The Christmas decor was fantastic, adding the special feeling for the place. That aside, the hotel is richly decorated and the grounds were impeccably kept.
We hope to return in the future.
