This resort was by far one of the best resorts my family and I have stayed at. You truly do get what you paid for. We had no clue what it would be like except what we saw in pictures. When we got to the resort, the pictures just didn't do it justice! It was so beautiful! I loved everything... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota in September 2016. We were greeted by welcoming employees at every stage of our visit from the Valet Parking to the Bellhop and the Front Desk. Every single employee was very kind and gave the impression that they genuinely cared. The room was clean and luxurious and the beds and pillows were extremely comfortable.... More

Beautiful hotel and wonderful staff only thing I did not like was my balcony it was overlooking the roof top and the balcony it was dirty with bird feathers and dirt. Otherwise hotel was very nice. Bed was very comfortable.

Met dear friends here for a long weekend and can't say enough about this gem of a property. Modest size creates an intimate feel unlike some of their larger convention properties. Our first room assignment was not ideal which the staff remedied almost instantly. Club level staff were exceptional especially Ana and Nick who define the standard of service Ritz... More

I love sarasota. The Ritz Carlton hotel is few minutes from armands circle. Tha location of the hotel is perfect. And the hotel is beautiful. The pictures I upload is all mine. Can't help myself from taking pictures. I love the bathroom, and the balcony from our room. I stayed there for 2 days with my friends.

We've stayed at many Ritz Carlton's and this hotel is very nice. All the boxes checked for what you should get at a Ritz. The hotel is spotless and the staff is friendly. You have to take a shuttle to the beach club area. Shuttles regularly leave the hotel and it's easy to get back and forth. We were disappointed... More

Pampered from arrival to departure! Everything was seamless. The hotel is not "directly" on the beach but I promise you the 5 minute shuttle service and private beach area you're escorted too upon arrival will make you quickly realize it is a non factor. #teamritz

We visited the Ritz for a mini- getaway. The service was top notch, yet warm and friendly. The beach club was awesome, and the pool was super nice... Complimentary buckets of ice water and water toys were icing on the cake. Well worth it! It felt like we were in some exotic location at a fabulous resort. We will definitely... More

I stayed here a few years ago and it was blah. Now it's gorgeous! Beautifully renovated common areas and the rooms are stunning. Service is wonderful. The only issue: signage directing you to your room could be better. The hallways are very much a maze and locating your room isn't easy.

I really wish I could give 5 stars and there's only 1 thing from holding me back from doing that. I loved everything about this hotel and their beach club really skies it well worth the stay. I was honestly disappointed by the quality of the bed and pillows. I have stayed in Ritz Carlton's in a lot of places... More
