We went on a vacation within a vacation, leaving the boys with the babysitter while on a trip to Florida, and headed to the Ritz for some time without kids. Its the Ritz so you know everything is going to be wonderful, and it did not disappoint. Wonderful service upon our arrival, answers to questions, etc., We had dinner on site at Jack Dusty's, swam late in the evening and enjoyed the Beach Club as well.
The pictures may have been a bit misleading or we did not pay close enough attention, but the hotel does not have a beach right on property. We knew where the hotel was located on the bay, so the beach pics seemed a bit curious, but figured maybe they put one in on the bay. Turns out those are the Beach Club over on Lido Key, which they take you to by shuttle. Its super easy and not a deterrent at all. In fact its a great because the shuttle also takes you to St. Armands Circle which is great. The Beach Club itself is also wonderful, with wonderful pool, great service on the beach. It made a wonderful vacation inside the vacation.
