“elegant beach front hotel but food could be better”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Attended a conference at this site and was pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the establishment. The lobby and lounge area are stunning. The pool and beach were well set up with a separate pool for families and for tranquility. Food and drinks available pool side. I recommend their Maui maui taco (however a word of caution - when I had it a 2nd time there was much less fish in it). Rooms are well appointed and have a good amount of space.

In house restaurants are OK - expensive. Most entrees are dressed with sauces - steak was well cooked however it was advertised with potatoes and asparagus - Potatoes were 3 SMALL squares of a what looked like a frozen potato patty and shaved asparagus on top. Asparagus was stringy and salty.

Room Tip: South tower is quieter

I was in town for a conference at the hotel. I was markedly impressed with the hotel, but most importantly, the staff! They are genuinely happy and helpful. Everywhere you turn you are greeted with a smile or a kind voice. And the spa is simply AMAZING! Don't miss it!

Hotel was what you would expect from a Ritz Carlton, not quite their , but close. The facilities were outstanding especially the work out room. The beach was right out the back & you felt removed from the craziness that can be Palm Beach area. The down side was if you go for a walk or run you need to stay east of RR tracks different, read not safe area. Overall outstanding stay if spending expense money worth the stay.

Room Tip: Paying for ocean make sure your room looks at it.

Enter the lobby of this beautiful hotel and you feel like you are in the most exclusive private club. Staff immediately know your name and use it frequently. Rooms are uber comfortable, with every amenity and some beautiful views. Restaurants and the spa are perfectly executed, making guests feel special and well cared for. I find the location a bit isolated but would highly recommend this as great value if you want a retreat from the world. Just sitting in the lobby lounge makes you feel immediately better.

Room Tip: Make sure to get an ocean view, it is worth it.

Six months ago we were fortunate to celebrate oour daughter's wedding at what was the Ritz Carlton, Palm Beach. Ours was the last wedding as the Ritz, the following Monday it became the Eau .....Regardless of the name, we could not have asked for a better event! I reviewed the Eau immediately after the wedding so for any feedback regarding event details, and comments please search as I do not wish to be repetitive, (although I can't ever say enough!!!!). we've been back 4 times since for little mini getaways and each and every time we return our experience is as good or better than the time before. We are welcomed by EVERYONE as though we just left and we were the only and most important guest! The staff treats us like royalty and there is NEVER anything that doesnt' seem to come easy! Their hospitality,care, friendliness is genuine! Nanacy, Nadia, Gina, Megan, diana and Philip in the club room..Rebecca and staff in the spa! It simply feels like home!!!!!l! As soon as we leave we start talking about the next visit!!!!!

Room Tip: We prefer the central or south towers as they are closest to spa, fitness room,etc...

Excellent service and atmosphere. We felt like we had been transported in time and space. Amazing decor and food everywhere. Temple Orange breakfast was delicious. We did not get to use the spa, but did do a tour and the place looks out of this world.

Room Tip: Try to get first floor with a view to the pool or beach
