This hotel is definitely a Ritz Carlton according to technical standards but it was not nearly my favorite one. Although I took a suite for 2 nights, there were no goodies in the room to greet me. I asked the front desk about it and they said that they don't send hospitality treats to welcome people in suites. Well, that's one way to distinguish yourself as a property. Breakfast at the hotel was OK but nothing special. They didn't have smoked salmon 2 days in a row and it's not on the menu and the bakery basket looked like some prepped frozen stuff you throw in the oven and serve. The acai berry bowl similarly was pretty lame. Dinner was a bit better and lunch was also OK. But if you go a mile down the street to the Four Seasons you pay not that much more but I had two outstanding meals there in the hotel's restaurant which has a great chef from Italy; you may as well be eating in Italy. The fitness center was disappointing although technically met standards; the array of fitness equipment looked more like Sheraton than Ritz Carlton; there was one exercise mat for the whole gym. You know that management is not walking the property because 2 weeks after the clocks were changed, the clock in the gym is still set to summer time. I mentioned it to the front desk in the evening, and the next afternoon it was still not fixed. In good hotels, management walks around and checks all the common areas. My suite was certainly nice and had good views; there are only 94 rooms in this property and the way the hotel is set up there are only 2 rooms per floor on each elevator landing, so it feels pretty intimate. The pool is large and the water is warm; the nearby beach has lots of surfers out on windy days. You can borrow a bicycle from the hotel; they have a few bicycles. I managed to get one pretty much when I wanted one. The spa is fine, although right now the facilities are closed. To be fair, this hotel costs a lot less than the Four Seasons and there are good package deals such as one that gives you $100 a day resort credit, free breakfast and valet parking. It's good value although after about 2 days you'd be really tired of eating breakfast there and I don't know what you could do with your resort credit except food and the spa, both of which would be pretty hard to spend after a few days of trying it. I see that the rates for Christmas start at over $2,500 a room and I don't see the value of that at all. Unless it is a very exclusive crowd in a rather small hotel, I can't see the draw. The hotel works but there is nothing exceptional about it and I don't see why I would return to it. But if you need to be in the area and it is off season, it offers good value for rooms and I would tell you to go eat at the Four Seasons. The valet parking and pool staff were friendly and I was happy that the front desk gave me a late check out; i had to remind them that had I booked through Amex Platinum I would be guaranteed a 4pm checkout and that I did not want to be penalized for booking directly with Ritz Carlton. That argument seemed to get me the late checkout after being told they needed the room for an arriving guest. I know the drill; two days before, I was the arriving guest shifted to another room when my room was not ready. I get the feeling that hotel chains increasingly take for granted those guests that book directly which is funny because those bookings are more profitable to them; they are more outgoing toward guests that come through cooperative travel agencies such as American Express or Virtuoso or Leading Hotels. I would say that hotels value these agencies more so than the guests themselves. One thing for sure, I kept feeling that when I get the survey from Ritz Carlton asking me a dozen times if I felt valued as a Ritz Carlton customer, I'm not going to be very positive with my response.

This was a great stay but some aspects feel very nickel and dime. The room was gorgeous don’t get me wrong. The tub overlooking the water and the bed comfy as can be. The robe and slippers to the great bath amenities. The service at check in and the pool all to the ritz expectation. Great towel service, etc. However. I DESPISE needing to pay for parking. It is the biggest Rip off in staying at a hotel. I’m already spending $500+ A night. You charge me then $40 a night for parking. Come on!! On top of the 500$ a night AND the 40$ night parking you then have an additional 40$ a night resort fee. But feet not! You get two glasses of Prosecco at the bar. Very annoying that the trend has become resort fees. I know the hotels do it to make extra money but when you’re paying 500$ a night plus parking PLUS resort fee. You feel a little bit had. I wish one day hotels will go away from this but sadly it seeks it’s how the norm.

Second visit here. Both times the front desk were substandard in their training. The first time here, I tried to reserve a pool side cabana for the kids. I was repeatedly told it was not available because they were “booked” and “so busy”. When we get down to the pool, of course it was available. Basically the guy was too lazy to check. Bathroom tiles in the room were warped on that visit. Otherwise rooms are nice. Second visit, I arrived at 1030. Waited all morning and afternoon to be checked in and given the “our guaranteed check in time is 4”. 4 o’clock comes and not only is the room not ready but the room is still occupied. The front desk calls the manager who comes out and just gives a blank stare. “Nothing I can do”, “if I could make a room”, “do you want 2 separate rooms?” That kind of attitude trickles from the top down and explains why the front desk service is so substandard. Pool staff is very nice and accommodating and more on par with Ritz service. The front desk staff, manager included, could take some notes from the pool staff.

We thoroughly loved our stay at the Ritz Bal Harbour. All the staff were excellent, especially Reiko, our cabana attendant. We stayed three days and never left the property. While we didn't actually go to the restaurant on property, we used in room dining, and every meal was great. I can't thank Paula enough for setting up everything before our stay. We can't wait for a return visit.

Disappointed, Disappointed, Disappointed, Disappointed! Promised other building due to hotel side being old and in major need of a renovation. Treated unprofessionally and couldn’t get the front desk to answer the phone for simple requests. Won’t be back!
