One night at the Ritz
We did one night here before heading to the hotel booked for a conference. The property is gorgeous, every staff member we wer so so very friendly. Our room overlooked the pool area with a nice patio. We ordered room service for dinner- fabulous set and the food was delicious! We also checked out the drogons test at the edge of the property. It was very neat to see the reaction between water and lava. It also had some great views!!!

The staff are just phenomenal - from check-in to housekeeping to valets to poolside. They were kind and always helpful. The hotel room was LOVELY and spacious and cool. It was always a joy to come back to it every day after our adventures. I would recommend a few improvements: 1. Rent boogie boards at the beach concierge. 2. Keep the casual dining open longer - like the grab and go until 6 or 7 pm; and the lounge until 10 pm. The Banyan Tree was great, but once was enough. Would have preferred more casual options nearby. The other two restaurants near the property were booked early. 3. Though the facility is older, the room and hallway renovations make it feel newer. However, the lobby restrooms need some work. Overall, a great stay full of great people and a restful, relaxing time at the pools, beaches and in the room.

This was my fourth time at this property. It is beautiful and the service is incredible. The surrounding area is great, with beautiful trail walks right at your doorstep and close proximity to several great restaurants. My only negative comments are these: given how expensive this property is, it is ridiculous and kind of tacky to be charging to use a beach chair and umbrella. I have stayed at several 5 star beach resorts, and this was the first time I experienced this. The resort already charges a resort fee, beach chairs and umbrellas should not cost more. You should also be able to order food and drinks to the beach as is the case at several other beach resorts. And second, this hotel used to have the option to self-park instead of valet. They should bring that back. It is inconvenient and expensive to have to valet your car everyday, especially when you are coming in and out. Aside from these two things we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to come back.
