TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

If you are expecting an exclusive, private beach resort at this Ritz Carlton, give it up! It is a public beach, across the street from the hotel. We reserved an oceanfront room, and the only rooms available of this most expensive type, are above the swimming pool, which is loaded with children screaming and yelling all day long, not to mention loud music playing at different times. Also, believe it or not, there is only one restaurant at this property. We truly thought we would have a quiet, exclusive experience at this property and that was not the case. We complained several times about the noise coming from the swimming pool but to no avail. The Ritz Carlton needs to get some "adult only" properties or restrictions during certain hours from children such as the club level or swimming pools, so adults can have some peace and quiet during some hours at least. One definite bright spot was the level of service at the club level from the club manager named Sammy. She was extraordinary!!

We stayed four nights with our three older teenage daughters at the Ritz Ft Lauderdale. We wanted somewhere easy in and easy out for a long weekend getaway with family members traveling from various points in the US. A few things a wish I knew before we arrived: the hotel is across the street from the beach. There is a skywalk connecting the hotel and the beach. On the weekends - the beach is crazy. No private area for Ritz guests so you are sitting in the middle of boom boxes and partiers. During the week - very pleasant and not crowded. The pool is small and is on the 7th floor. Views are gorgeous and there is a lively bar and good food. But it has a very urban feel. The surrounding properties are a real mix of high end hotel/condos and a Hooters and CVS right next door and downscale bars and souvenir shops. The scene to the south of the building is .. a scene .. especially at happy hour on the weekends. Traffic on the weekends can make getting to nearby restaurants a challenge. Breakfast buffet and Burlocka restaurant excellent - but prices seem even higher than what we've seen at other RC resorts. Rooms are a little dated as compared with other newly renovated Ritz properties we have stayed at. As usual, hotel staff and service are A++. Would stay here again if I had business in Ft Lauderdale but not for a family get away.

My husband & I stopped in for lunch at the Burlock Coast Seafare & Spirits restaurant, located in the lovely Ritz Carlton in Fort Lauderdale. From the valet to the waitress, it was a lovely experience. Michelle, our server, was very friendly & kind. We sat inside by the big windows (windy day), having a lunch overlooking the beach.....very soothing. We had visited the Ritz Carlton in 2007, however, this restaurant is relatively new and wasn't there on our last visit. The restaurant had a very open concept, welcoming to beach goers, as well as guests at the hotel. We enjoyed the ceviche, as an appetizer, and I had the swordfish with grilled vegetables. My husband had the grouper sandwich, very tasty, with a hot sauce & slaw on top. It had excellent fries on the side. The first 2 hours of valet parking are free if you validate your ticket with the hostess, which the valet kindly recommended. This restaurant is a nice addition to the Ritz experience, and we highly recommend !

My wife and I stayed one night before a Cruise at Christmas time. We had stayed for a week in September 2017. The hotel gave us a great room, corner over the pool. Just fantastic as you can see in the pictures. We flew into Ft Lauderdale in the morning and were at the poll before lunch time. 82 degrees. Spent the day at the pool and visited with so many of the wonderful staff (Scott, Richard, Ashley, Alex, Nick and I forgot a few others) They really make you feel at home. Still would prefer a different Main Restaurant setup at the Ritz. The Poolside Café was good as always. My wife did a spa treatment, exfoliation of some sort she really enjoyed. I think this may be our go to for short beach trips in the future.

I have stayed here before and was pleased to find that the high standards are being maintained. The hotel remains excellent, starting with the warm welcome at the front door which leads into the spotless lobby with its beautiful orchid centerpiece arrangement. My ocean facing room with balcony was huge and very clean. The bathroom with large bath and separate toilet and shower were clean with quality towels. Front desk staff was pleasant. I liked the free infused water in the lobby. Some negatives: The bed was too soft for my preference. The elevators had maintenance issues and at times there was only one functioning elevator, very inadequate for such a large hotel.
