Everyone loves the Ritz. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave the staff make you feel like you are walking on air! We only had a basic room but it was not basic. It was luxurious from the thick carpet to the marble bathroom. Turn down service, chocolates on your pillow. You name it! The pool at... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this Ritz. Super inexpensive for a Ritz. The bed is extreamly comfortable and their bathrooms beautiful and spacious. Try the Bar and restaurant downstairs. We will only stay here when in Sarasota. The only thing I have to say Is that they should extend the hours at their SPA since this... More

From the moment we drove up to the Hotel we knew it would be special. Every member of staff was always happy and smiling, courteous and helpful. After the Valet took our car and bags we were given a glass of champagne and checked in straight away. Our room was 5* with all the usual facilities you would expect. The... More

This is a beautiful Ritz Carlton property. Nicely appointed rooms, great service and a wonderful atmosphere. The only thing that could make it better is actually being directly on the beach. There is, however, a very convenient shuttle service that takes you on about a 5 minute ride to their beach club on a beautiful stretch of beach. There, you... More

To celebrate a special birthday for a friend, I was lucky to spend an afternoon at a private cabana at the pool. Victoria from Peru...unapologetic service with a smile. Everything was addressed. Could not have been a better experience. Even the late afternoon thunderstorm saw the team orchestrate a shut down of the environment seamlessly.

The hotel was lovely enough. However, y room experienced a leak coming from the bathroom that flooded my room, so that was sort of a bummer. Of course the hotel moved me, but I was kind of hoping, for the trouble, I would get an upgrade. Maybe next time?

We have just returned from 4 nights here, staying as a family with two children aged 3 and 5. Coming on the end of a trip to Disney / Orlando the hotel has a very efficient though relaxed vibe. Thats quite hard to achieve so full credit to the staff. The hotel is well located, close to the marina with... More

We stayed at this location July 11-14. We had not been there since the room renovations and were absolutely pleased. The new modern look was awesome. However, that's not what is prompting me to write a review, it's the service level. From the time you pull up it begins. Not just friendly but getting to know your name immediately and... More
