My husband and I spent 4 nights, with the reconnect package. One expects to pay a lot at a hotel like the Ritz, but I feel that the package provided additional value over the standard rates. The breakfast buffet had good variety, plenty of fresh fruit and juices and a lovely outdoor patio. The poolside service for food and drinks adds to the relaxing feel of the vacation (no one waits on me at home..). The spa has outstanding amenities, with top notch lounges (hot and cold plunges, steam, sauna, relaxation room...). The gym facility is the best I've seen at a hotel (besides the Greenbrier).
We ate at the beachside restaurant, Gumbo Limbo, and enjoyed good, not great, food, in a wonderful setting. I thought the drink prices around the resort were a little steep. The frozen drinks are premade in one of those smoothie machines, not made to order, so $12 to $15 a drink strikes me as excessive. But its the Ritz...
The room was fine, nothing extraordinary inside, but our balcony overlooking the gulf made if feel special. The grounds of the hotel are lush, and the common areas are typical of a nice hotel. The beach of soft sand is clean and pretty.
All in all, the Ritz was a perfect destination for a short and easy vacation. It is convenient to the airport (RSW) and close to downtown Naples. I hope to return again someday.
