With so many stylish, boutique hotels opening, many of which are affordable or at least reasonable, it is easy to be swayed by aesthetics and forget that a hotel is part of the service industry.

Dog haven Beautiful property, but lacks the elegance of the original Ritz. Oceanfront room had a beautiful view; service was excellent and staff members were cordial and accommodating. Only complaint would be the barrage of dogs on the property. The hotel hosts a monthly charity event for dogs and their owners. Great for them - not so great for guests...

This is an amazing hotel with amazing views. We went for Sunday lunch. With flowing champagne. Was fabulous. Would definitely wish to return some day. The views of the beach and ocean below are amazing.

My husband and I had the best time at our November 2016 stay! We particularly enjoyed the club level accommodations and the excellent service from the staff. Thanks to Andrew Fernandes and his great hospitality!

This is a one of a kind Ritz as the location is superb. The attention to detail is remarkable and the quality of service unsurpassed by any other hotel we have visited in recent years. From the moment you drive up you feel special. The warm smiles and exceptional service from the staff is consistent from the time you arrive...

From the moment we walked in the door, we were treated like honored guests. Roy was very attentive and interested in how he could make our stay memorable. In celebration of my husband starting a new job, he put us in the most lovely room with a view. We were so smitten with the surfers and crashing waves, we opted...
