Absolutely everything you would want in a resort beach vacation BUT beware- we ordered a simple eggs, bacon , toast, coffee room service and it was over $ 90.00 for two people !!!! A simple breakfast! It’s really the principle of the thing. How much can eggs overhead be ?! Lol . Two nites later, same cost for a fantastic hamburger, soup, fries, chicken wings , drinks ! Go figure ? But love the place and will return for sure .

Relaxation in Paradise

Pros: I enjoyed the pool the best. The temperature was perfect and it was so relaxing.
Cons: Housekeeping could be improved. Rooms were sometimes not cleaned until 5PM which was not acceptable especially when the room was vacant since early am
Location: A nice beach walking path connected to the other hotels nearby .
From the moment you arrive until the day you leave , it is relaxation. Upon arrival, you are greeted by friendly staff with a glass of champagne and an aroma that is sweet and floral. The lovely aroma is a signature and secret sent to the Ritz. The room was large and spotless and the bathroom was the size of an economy hotel room. The balcony overlooked the water and provided a lovely location to have a morning coffee. Outdoors you found beautiful grounds bursting with colors that screamed tropical island The beach was clean and the water was an array of beautiful blue hues. The pool was relaxation at the utmost. The shallow depth fostered lazing in the water or on rafts. Pool and beach staff attended to your needs and were very friendly. Food at the restaurants were top quality and the famous popover at BLT did not disappoint. All in all, the Ritz provided a wonderful relaxing vacation.

Relaxing and Elegant Stay

Pros: Location, quality of accommodations, cleanliness
Cons: The rooms are noisy (poor insulation?), the toilets don't flush on the first try (have to flush twice and hold the handle down?)
Location: Nice more isolated location compared to other hotels
Overall fantastic. I like the fact that the hotel is at the end of strip and not in the midst of all the other hotels. Perfect if you are looking for a more relaxing experience. The spa was impeccable.

Vacation at the Ritz

Pros: The pool is a relaxing place with the service provided.
Cons: Place is pretty much perfect. Bringing down the price too much would bring everyone and it would no longer be special. But a package deal would be
Location: Chalet sueis (Best Dinner) BLT-Simply Fish Lighthouse is near by and Batchlers Beach.
We stayed for 7 days and feel quite spoiled. Greeted with glasses of champaign upon checkin to our ocean front room which was very spacious. Employees treat every guest as royalty. Pool and beach areas are kept spotless and food and drink service at the pool or beach was very good. The casino was a little boring. Food in surrounding restaurants is fantastic. No need for cab rides all over Aruba. The place is expensive but thats part of what makes it the Ritz. What I did not like was the service charge that is placed per night for services I had no intention of using. Spa, Gym, Kid care, non motorized Water Sports ect. that with taxes is another c-note per night. Also wanted to checkmy bill on the TV service after a few days and found it wasn't working. I think they don't want you to know how much you're spending.
