Our family had a fantastic time here and it was probably one of the highlights of our vacation. Service was of course great and the hotel had lots of things to do such as games like billiards and ping pong, as well as kayaking and paddle boarding which we loved and was easy to do since there's some protection from...

This is our second stay at this property and it was the best so far. The rooms have been updated and the bed was soon great! We of course loved the room service, TOP NOTCH! Lido Key Beach club was amazing. Many took the shuttle, but we just used the valet for our rental. Both properties were beautiful. The front... More

After four days at Universal, we travelled to the Gulf coast for some R&R and the Ritz was perfect. We were a little shocked about the location as it wasn't on the beach (we should of looked closer!) but don't let that put you off. The hotel offer a free shuttle to their sister hotel on Lido beach and it's... More

I've been here several times, both as a local visiting the restaurant, Jack Dusty, and as a guest in the hotel. Everything is fabulous, as you would expect. There is one extra benefit here, there is a private beach and pool that they take you to five minutes away. It's spectacular.

The free shuttle bus was great. We really enjoyed at day at the beach club and a trip to St Armands Circle. Fitness suite facilities were fantastic and the location was good.... More

Stayed here as a family of 4 for 5 nights for a much needed rest after 9 days in Orlando. We had a Marina view room, which I would recommend. The hotel is well located for downtown Sarasota, with St Armands Circle readily accessible via the hotel's shuttle that leaves every hour. The above provide access to a wide range... More

I have stayed with Ritz before- most recently Fort Lauderdale -and then here, at Sarasota. As I booked through Amex Platinum, I got a room upgrade,and a few extras. I had booked a club level king suite, so all they could upgrade, was a better view, and they did that- I saw Dolphins from my window :D But, from the... More

This last week my family and I had the pleasure of staying at the Ritz Carlton, Sarasota property. The stay at this resort was fantastic. We have stayed at many other Ritz properties, but I have to say, to our pleasant surprise, this property was superior to all others. The stay began with a visit to Jack Dusty’s. This is... More

Had an amazing get away at this lovely Hotel. Shame it wasn't on the beach as the shuttle is a bit of a pain after a day on the beach. Rooms were excellent and friendly staff. Get local restaurants as well.

We love coming here for short getaways. We haven't been in over a year and we just loved the newly renovated rooms. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet (we stayed in 925). As always, the staff was excellent.
