By far, the worst Ritz experience we have ever had. The service was terrible. Our very first meal on the property was comped because our drink order actually arrived after our food. Unfortunately the service never got better. The resort shops were poorly appointed with necessary healthcare items, and all closed at 5pm. Breakfast buffet hardly had any choices and was of course expensive. We thought our A/C was broken, they came to check and insisted it was fine, meanwhile our room was HOT. No follow up was ever done. Beach is tiny. Very hard to get lounge chairs at pool, people save them and staff don’t follow resort policy regarding this. We will NEVER return to this Ritz.

I was very disappointed at the fact of paying $1700 a night to not even have decent bottled waters. The water was Kirklands…. An off brand water from Sams club. I expected Fiji water at the least. The jacuzzi jets were not working so we couldn’t enjoy that amenity, the food menu was very limited.. I’m not sure why. The shower was not strong and the water did not get hot just luke warm. There’s absolutely no lighting on the balcony even you step out to get fresh out. It’s completely dark outside. To top off everything I was disappointed about is that the power went out at 11:40 am and never came back on. I couldn’t sleep at all although the bedding was Heaven it was too hot/humid to enjoy them without A/C. My husband and I left the property 6:30 am. We were told we would be refunded for the inconvenience.

Clean, rooms have great views. The restaurants on the property were good. Asked for our room to be turned down at check in it never happened. Asked for a couple of other things to be brought into the room which also was overlooked. Some of the staff were not too hospitable. Over all enjoyable.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Overall very overpriced hotel for amenities offered. Rooms are approx 1100-1200 per night. The beach was mediocre with lots of seaweed and rocky sand. There were no umbrellas provided for shade at the beach. Water sports equipment is "free " as part of their resort fee but that is misleading. If you want to use their hobie cat you are required to pay 125 for a lesson before use. So...free after you pay 125 dollars... for how much you pay in resort fees this should be included. The pool area was average. There weren't enough chairs poolside and almost all were claimed by 9 am. They ran out beach towels mid afternoon. Service was hit or miss. Some workers were rude (housekeeping and towel staff) but most were friendly and some were exceptionally nice - the bell hops , don't desk staff and wait staff( latoya from allora specifically). Its definitely a nice resort, but not nearly a 5 star resort or worth the price tag.

This was our first experience at a Ritz Carlton, and to say we were impressed would be an understatement. The staff was very helpful, and we really enjoyed the peaceful nature of the resort. We've already booked our next vacation, and look forward to returning.
