Location to Punda was only 10 min walk. Facility was awesome, great rooms, great pool area, great staff. Food at the restaurant by the pool was tasty at a good price. Full Canadian breakfast with pancakes, eggs, bacon, juice and all the coffee you can drink for $10 usd. We'll definitely be back.

We booked last minute and got a room at the end of a hallway with no front view or window to outside, but it was an exception. The majority of the rooms have a sitting area outside their door. Just make sure to ask for it.

I've seen some comments about the sketchy neighborhood surrounding the hotel. While there are some houses in disrepair, they're the exception and at no time did we feel that we were in an unsafe area.

I spent 4 nights in this hotel over New Year. It’s not the most elegant hotel but it has everything you need (A/C, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, enough storage space, large safe, TV with many international channels and free wifi). Very friendly staff, food was good. The bar closes at 10 pm which is too early for my taste, but guests who want to go to bed “early” probably appreciate it. I definitely would stay there again

Staff is very friendly and accommodating. I recently wrote of my horrible experience at City Suites, well the Ritz is where I moved to. Their internet is strong and I was actually able to use it from the parking lot LOL. The hotel is quiet, has its own pool with sand and is a quick walk to the shops and restaurants. There are two restaurants on site which I did not take advantage of. The rooms are very clean adequate with a mini kitchen. I had no issues with this hotel and will be returning, not only for the location, pool, internet and quiet but the staff was so welcoming and helpful, you get the feeling they really enjoy working at the Ritz which says a lot.

Bed has 1 sheet for coverage, no extra blanket. Beach towels are available for rent ($3) + $20 deposit.

While I was initially a bit unsure about staying here based on some of the previous reviews it really grew on me over the week. It was consistently clean and quiet, the staff were warm and helpful, and the location was great for access to town. I stayed here as a solo female and I felt very safe the whole time including walking to and from town.

A good hotel, affordable prices, friendly and helpfull staff. Nice mix of people in the hotel and hostel at happy hour and evenings. Don't expect luxury, but clean rooms and walking distance from town centre.

Staffing wouldnt help on many issues. Internet was HORRIBLE. I told them 3 times and on the second time, they told me: no, you wrong, its working. I gave up on that. Restrooms and bathroom not clean everyday and its disgusting. Staffing not looking like much help for nothing. One day, they just forgot to put the breakfast. It took 1 hour to fix it. I asked for a chair on the Bathroom and took them 4 days to put it there only after I get upset at the reception. I would never return.

I stayed at the Ritz Residence Penthouse for my honeymoon and it was an amazing experience. The hotel and residence were clean and well maintained, the staff was friendly and welcoming . The General Manager Mr.Fazl Khan is an amazing person who ensured that our honeymoon was a memorable experience. The Ritz is secured 24/7 which added peace of mind to my stay.
