Never a disappointing stay at the Ritz!

Pros: Everything
Cons: Travelocity and the games they play on pricing with airfare.
Location: You are right where all the action happens and on the most perfect beach and then when you get back to the quiet elegance of the hotel its wonderful.
Aside from the typical games Travelocity (when it comes to pricing) and the other search sites play the Ritz carlton is amazing in overall service and location.

Best Ever Vacation

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: price
If you want it all for a beach type vacation - this is it! Walking distance to everything, clean beach, staff is in the bend over backward status your entire stay, and rooms are what you want and then some. Workout facilities - makes you do over time, pool is heated, drinks at the bar are super, two hot tubs, beach is top notch, and great place for the kids too (activities for them at the pool). Once you try it - you will save all year long just to do it again!

This hotel was the perfect getaway!

The hotel was beautiful, sophisticated, clean, and although right in the middle of everything- quiet and restful. Within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the beach. The staff was courteous, helpful and well-trained. They made you feel welcome and cared for. This is a hotel we will visit again and have already recommended to family and friends.

The staff and food are excellent and it is well located.

Our problem: the spa was under renovationa and we were not told that when we booked facials and massages. When we were taken to "treatment rooms" we were taken to dimly lit guest rooms and layed on beds! In addition construction was going on all around us whiel in the "treatmetn room." Other than the spa which hopefuly is renovated,it is a nice, well located hotel.

Best of the Best

There just isn't a better place to stay. Service is top notch...from the front desk to the wait staff. They jump through hoops to make your comfortable and happy. Just walking past them in the BEAUTIFUL lobby they say hello and offer you a glass of fruit flavored water. The rooms are amazing and very clean. The beds and pillows are like sleeping on a cloud. Large balconies with views of either the ocean or the intercoastal waterway. Bathrooms are the size of some hotel rooms in NYC! The bars (wine bar and regular bar) are great. The restaurant on location is 5 star, amazing food and service for breakfast (buffet or menu), lunch and dinner. The pool area is paradise. Full bar with BBQ most days, music, very attentive wait staff, large pool, water-wall, hot tubs and huge, very comfortable lounge chairs. Just when you get too hot, a staff member shows up with a cool rag and a glass of ice water. The spa is huge and offers any service you could ask for. Great location, right across from the beach and close to the water taxi which can get you to all the major stops in Ft. Lauderdale or even a day trip to South Beach. This is not a cheap stay by ANY means. But if you want to have just the greatest experience available, this is the place to stay.
