Adler and Ruben have given me phenomenal service today. They were so nice and made my first trip to this particular beach an enjoyable time.
They helped me immediately and were so efficient. Also, set up the cabanas and tents in a great spot ! Such a great experience at this beach , we will be back for sure ! Thank you for such a great experience guys!

Our experience of this property was not a good one. We stayed in February for four days in an executive Junior Suite. The room was fine, but not as luxurious as other Ritz/luxury hotel rooms. (There was a large water stain on the dresser, for example.) We had an inter-coastal waterway view, but since we were on the 10th floor, what we actually had a view of was the roof and huge venting system of the property next door and over that, we saw the waterway.

Housekeeping was not the standard of a Ritz. There was a noticeable layer of dust on open shelving in the bathroom. Also dirty towels in bathroom were not picked up/replaced during evening turn-down one night.

At the pool the first day, there was no one staffing the towels, so we got our own towels and set up our own chairs. There were staff members by the bar, but during a 60 minute period of sitting, nobody ever came to offer us a drink or food.

At the beach, there was one staff member sitting in a chair next to a cooler of waters.
We were offered towels each time we went, but only once did someone set up the chairs for us. No water was brought around after we sat. The staff member just sat in his chair. One day when it was warm, I was looking for more water, but there was nobody there staffing the beach and no water cooler to be found for 30-45 minutes.

When entering the hotel, no valets opened the door for us any time. On the day I was checking out, I was traveling with just my pre-school daughter, so I had bags and her and there were several staff members talking in the lobby, but nobody opened the door or offered assistance.

To sum up, When you are paying a resort fee and staying at a Ritz, you should be receiving a certain level of assistance and service that just didn't exist. I spoke to the manager on our last night there and he was apologetic and offered a complimentary spa service, but it was not feasible for me. Instead, they provided complimentary room service breakfast on the next morning, which was nice.

I suppose I should have mentioned something earlier though, because the next morning before check out, we went to the beach and the staff member set up chairs, gave us water, and about 30 minutes later came around to offer more water. It was such a different experience from the days prior that I assume the manager spoke to people.

Room tip: If intercoastal, be sure to stay on as high a floor as possible

The Ritz is obviously a great brand but this property is especially fantastic. The staff is wonderful. Scottie at the pool bar was so great to talk with. Adler and Ruben on the beach were just awesome guys and always made sure I got the best spot with an umbrella. Housekeeping was unbelievable even stocking my ice bucket. Front desk was just super friendly. I can't wait to return.

It is such a swag moment to check in on facebook at THE RITZ CARLTON. After spending a few days prior to our cruise in Ft. Lauderdale at THE RITZ I know why. This location is beautiful and close to restaurants, shopping, and a beautiful location.

This was a return trip for us to this Ritz, and it was the perfect choice.
We arrived on Good Friday afternoon following a long morning of travel. The welcome was warm. We were upgraded to a beautiful ocean front suite - huge living/dining area, kitchenette, and large bedroom, plus bath and powder rooms. Since our suite was not quite ready we went to the onsite restaurant for a late, light lunch. It was fabulous. The outdoor seating made for great people watching and we were enjoying the activity when the front desk rep came to let us know we could proceed to our suite at any time. A word about the restaurant - just because you’re on the coast doesn’t mean the fish is always perfectly prepared - but it was for our lunch and we were thrilled with it.
Housekeeping is very attentive - need something? Just ask and it appears. Turndown the Saturday evening prior to Easter brought bunny cookies and chocolate eggs — and the hotel had a full weekend of Easter activities for families. We enjoyed watching the delighted kids run looking for eggs.
The club lounge had wonderful offerings for light bites which we enjoyed, as well as a nice selection of wines and soft drinks (and harder stuff for those inclined).
Valet service was quick, very efficient, and so friendly. I don’t think I opened a door other than the one to our room the entire weekend.
We had rented a car with Hertz and the return was so easy - instead of having to go back to the airport Hertz has a relationship with the hotel - they picked up the car there. How wonderful is that? We also arranged for car service to the pier (and pick up from the pier to the airport) via the hotel. Again, a great service we find worth it.
Last spring we stayed at the W prior to a cruise and it was way to hip and cool for us (read NOISE). This year we came back to the Ritz and it was not only a smart choice, but the best one we could have made.

Room tip: Ocean front is beautiful and the views are serene
