This was our third visit to this hotel. Every member of the staff goes out of his or her way to make your stay enjoyable. It's a relatively small resort, and they get to know you and your needs quickly and they address you by name. Very nice.
Being in a relatively remote area, your dining choices are basically limited to the hotel, which was fine with us because the food is uniformly great. Chef Joel at the Core restaurant is innovative and excellent, and he relishes your enjoyment of his fare. His wait staff are amazing. They are focused like lasers on assuring you an enjoyable meal. The casual dining is good as well. My litmus test is the fruit at the breakfast buffet, particularly the pineapple. If they care, you'll get real fresh fruit instead of cardboard. Here, they care.
We've been in a suite each time, and they are spacious, light, comfortable, and quiet. The little touches, like dimmers on the bed reading lamps, are appreciated.
There is a very well-equipped workout room; one of the best I have seen in a hotel. The spa is an intimate and relaxing place to spend a good part of the day, with its own pool and mini-cabanas and the requisite services. My only gripe about my entire experience at the hotel was that the razors supplied in the men's spa were awful, but that's a mere quibble.
For a relaxing off-the-beaten-path respite, the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain is a great choice. We are looking forward to our next visit.
