“Thanksgiving Holidays”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

My wife and I stayed at the Lodge for 4 nights over the Thanksgiving holidays...

Pros
- Nice property and grounds. Lots to do on site without having to drive. Fishing, Boating, Basketball, Playground, Temporary Ice Rink, Kids Train, Bike Path, Segways, Golf, Spa, Pools (indoor/outdoor).
- Supermarket and Theater right down the street
- Family atmosphere....lots of kids and things to do with kids.
- The spa was large and nice.
- Had a great meal at the Linger Longer Restuarant
- The thanksgiving buffet, while expensive, was great. The food was wonderful, the presentation interesting, and the entertainment fun.

Cons
- We were celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary. The front desk acknowledged it when we checked in, but that was it. 4Seasons always puts a card and/or dessert in our room
- Our box bed was not sitting on the bed frame properly. We were too tired to fix when we got back to the room. Staff fixed the following morning.
- Carpet & Furniture is needing update
- They only had live music one night, but the band was good.
- Staff was a little underwhelming compared to other locations.
- No self parking - considering we barely used our SUV while we were there, the $20/day fee was a waste.

Recommendations / Suggestions
- Spring for the lake view rooms if your looking for a more quiet vacation. I got a garden style room hoping for an upgrade, but apparently the lake rooms were full at checkin. Our room sat on the Ritz train path side. The train ran at select times. The train sound effects became annoying after awhile when we sat on our balcony or left the door open. Same goes for the other side of the building and the ice rink. The ice rink plays loud music.
- Book resturant & spa before you arrive. Granted this was a holiday weekend, but the Spa and Linger Longer Restaurant were nearly fully committed when we arrived.
- Become a Ritz Card member. You get free internet & room upgrade if avaliable.

All in all, we would return again.

Just came back from 2 night stay with our family, cousins and grandparents. Beautiful grounds with outside infinity pool with view to die for; friendly bellboy giving kids ride on cart; relaxing spa with indoor pool with family hours (Emily, thank you for best massage); delicious food (great filet mignon, yummy breakfast and smooth skinny martinis with hummus dip- thanks Will from Gabby); lots to do - kids loved canoeing on lake and we want to than Halley again; finish the night with smores; and more to do next day. But, service is not consistent and needs to improve at dinner time - heard others complain about the same. It is low season and friends had suggested going off property for dinner. A little surprised since had just gotten back from quick fall break trip to the Ritz at Laguna off season and this was not the case there. Yet, still recommend staying at Reynolds Plantation and hope to give it 5 stars next year.

this place was FABULOUS. i was there for a work event and couldn't have been happier. like the title says, it felt like i was hanging out at a rich, old money, friend's house. we played at the pool table. we drank at the bar. we hung by the fire places.

the details of the property were beautiful. the time of year (early Nov) was breathtaking with the leaves changing was a nice bonus and the location is set a little over an hour from ATL, so it really felt like a retreat. it was so quiet and peaceful.

Pros: the nightly smores by the campfire (yes, i love this added touch), the 2x/day room service, the grounds are amazing, the room is large and the bathroom was nice. the food at Gaby's was a little pricey, but it was plenty reasonable for a Ritz and was good. even the guiness tasted better.

Not-so-big-of-a-deal-cons: i was a little surprised with all the staff up front that nobody offered to help with my bags, but i didn't need the help anyway (i only had a small roller bag and a purse). i was also put in to a room w/2 beds instead of a king w/out knowing it, but again, not a big deal. i had a weird view of a tent - i'm not sure if that is permanent or not, but i was hanging out at the campfire at night anyway :)

What can you say? It's the Ritz!! Beautiful setting, wonderful staff. We are not golfers so didn't take advantage of the beautiful courses. The walking trails are great. Spa/exercise facilities superb! Very restful experience.

Room Tip: Stay on the concierge level! Great food and drink all day long.

We went here for our honeymoon and stayed on the concierge level. It was lovely. The service was impeccable. The food in the restaurants and the lounge was fabulous. We almost never had to eat full meals because the concierge food service was so extensive. We used the spa services which were just as good as any other spa but not necessarily any better. The setting is beautiful and the infinity pool is a nice touch. The surrounding area (outside the hotel property) was not that fabulous. However, we spent most of our time just enjoying the immediate campus of the hotel. If you're a golfer, this might be paradise.

Room Tip: I believe the concierge level is well worth the up-charge.

Hubby and I have spent our anniversary here and hubby organized a surprise 50th for me here as well. Both experiences were above and beyond our expectations. We have nothing but fond memories and would return any time. Bed was comfortable, food was delicious, employees were friendly, view over the lake relaxing, a great property.

For all who enjoy great golf and superb accomodations, then the Ritz at Reynolds Plantation will be a great experience you. First of all, the mgmt at the Ritz has done an excellent job in training (literally all of the employees we met) their employees to make you feel like you are home. The location on Lake Oconee, excellent. make sure u get a water view room. Also, make sure u get a room on the club level. The food in the club room (they have 4 different servings each day), like the location is excellent. They never run out of cocktails or wine and it is all included in your room rate. The club room is also a great way to meet and make new friends. Regarding the golf, Great Waters is a must. The back nine especially. We also played the Landings and The Oconee and all are first class. They also have caddies. Add this one to your must visit list.
