We have been to every Ritz in Florida and we absolutely loved this Ritz the best! The staff was amazing, including the front desk manager Brandon Close, who went above and beyond for us. Jason was also terrific. The pool staff, Zack, Cyrus and Savannah were top notch and Hans in the lobby was fabulous. The food was outstanding, the resort was gorgeous and the city of Sarasota is packed with fun things to do. We were a family of four and we loved every minute! We will be back!!!

We had a luxurious time this past President’s Day Weekend at the Ritz in Sarasota. Our main objective was to play some golf. The Ritz Carlton’s course did not disappoint. It had lush landscaping, impeccably groomed fairways and greens, and a very friendly layout for a fair weather golfer like me. The hotel was nicely appointed, and being greeted with champagne at check in gave major brownie points. The balcony in my room offered a peaceful view of the pool, marina, and water. The restaurant on site overlooks the pool and marina and offers a nice selection of eats and drinks, but our best dining experience with the Ritz was at the beach club (a shuttle ride away) at Ridley’s Porch. This spot overlooks the beach and if you arrive in time for sunset, you’ll be treated to a great one. The restaurant service was spot on and the food was not only creative and delicious, but also artfully presented. See more about my Sarasota trip and more pictures on the blog for Eatdrinkandgo.

We just at this property for a few nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The staff really goes above and beyond at this hotel. After mentioning that we were celebrating my mothers birthday, they sent us cupcakes to celebrate. We loved the beach club and the service at both the beach club and hotel pool. We had lunch at Ridley’s Porch and the food and service were very good. My mother had a minor incident in our room and Clay was very helpful and caring. He even checked in on her after we had left the hotel. We will definitely be back in the future.

It is a fabulous hotel and the service is impeccable. We were there for business and pleasure but all staff made it even more enjoyable. Thanks again to Eric who was our personal driver for the weekend and had great restaurant suggestions (Selva Grill my next review) Thank you Ritz for your unbeatable hospitality! We will be back for sure.

This is a gorgeous hotel with a lovely restaurant, pretty guest rooms (two sinks in the bathroom), and terrific meeting facilities. The spa and fitness area is also substantial, well maintained, and amazing. Our breakfasts were delicious and the service excellent. The negatives are that while the beach club is fantastic on every level, getting there is not. The shuttles only run during the week on the hour and even leaving the beach at 4:00 meant a 45 minute ride back to the hotel due to traffic. Another minor grievance I have is there is no stair access to the hotel rooms. Guests are forced to use the elevators, even to the 2nd floor rooms! I make it a point when traveling to use the stairs as much as possible. I was very surprised to learn I couldn't do that at the Ritz-Carlton! I was told if I wanted to use the stairs they would have to call for a security escort. Really? In the case of fire, apparently, they would open the stairs but at that point who would be able to find them?
