This is the only place we will ever stay again while visiting Sarasota. Not only is the service wonderful as one would expect with the Ritz Carlton brand, but the hotel is lovely. Really a first class experience and much better than anything else available in the area for slightly higher costs. It is not cheap, but well worth the expense in my opinion.

Hotel, Resort and staff were all great. Beautiful hotel. Resort staff were very attentive. Food at hotel and beach were both very good. The Hotel pool is very nice, but fairly small. The Resort pool is large and the beach is great.

Unfortunately I think this Ritz is a little run down. Also, the culture is a little different. The front desk people are a little stand offish. They were kind of rude to us actually... it was pretty apparent we were kind of subpar being only "gold" members. Also, we didn't roll in a porsche. *eyeroll* Yet, the staff in the club level lounge are really fake / overbearing. It is quite the contrast. Sometimes I just want to get a water without a 20 min convo with 20 questions. The exception is Fabio, he is fantastic and truly genuine. There is limited outdoor seating for club level lounge. The coffee machine - horrible. The gift shop is awful, really odd merchandise & small In regards to the room: Rust in shower drain Old tub/shower combo, they hang the towels in the shower which is kind of gross. No racks to dry swimwear Kept having to ask for TP, amenities, towels, laundry bags. Over promise, under deliver is the motto. We waited so long for everything. One example was I needed some linen pants cleaned for the next day. I had burned a part of my leg & the linen pants were the only thing I had to wear and still be able to visit the beach club with my husband. That next day was our last & our only day to go to the beach club (we were in town for business). I asked the front desk and they said by 9am the next morning wound be no problem. The lady who came and picked them up said it would be no problem and I even tipped her $20. The laundry dept calls the next morning and says it will be a little longer, probably 9:30. I said no problem. Then it's about 10:00am and she calls again and says she still needs to press them, probably 10:30. I said no need to press them, we just needed to get going. 10:30 comes and goes so my husband calls and long story short, they finally come at 11:00am. Wet. We spend about 2-3 weeks a year at Ritz hotels because we love the Ritz. We are gold members. We are actually going back to Sarasota in July. Sadly, we will be checking out the new Westin if open :( BEACH CLUB I went 2 days to this beach club while staying at the Ritz. The first day I was by myself. Other than being reprimanded for trying to use towel clips I bought (they gave special towels that wrap around the chairs) I was completely ignored. The next day I was there with my husband... then all of a sudden the charm came out. Would you like cocktails? Waters? Menu? Etc, etc. I am not sure the reasoning of this - but I don't need my husband there for permission to order your $15 drinks. The first part of the day we spend on the actual beach. It was awful. Tractors went back and forth for 3 hours moving bar furniture. Also, there were these girls who kept driving gator / golf carts all morning. They kept getting stuck in the sand (it was so dry) and they thought it was hilarious. This went on for over an hour. We got so sick from the gas fumes and noise we had to leave. The noise and racket went on for hours about 15 feet from where everyone was sitting. We could not enjoy anything, take a nap, or read a book. Go to any other beach in the area. This place is not worth it.

Disclaimer: We used our Marriott points to secure the room for three nights. Room was clean but smallish, no view to speak of as it is mostly landlocked. Concierge was ok, gentleman checking us in(I won't reveal his name, begins with 'L') was cynical, smug and condescending. He mentioned using our "hard earned points" and "Gold status", both of which mean virtually nothing, as the rationale for our stay. That said, the rest of the staff was wonderful from housekeeping to doormen to beach servers. The pool are was very small and not very inviting. Was hoping for more, but their Beach Club seems to be their best amenity(they charge @$33/nt for it even on point stays. Hyatt doesn't). All that said, the beach was beautiful, the water a perfect temperature, the beer cold, the food very good, and the shuttle to and fro very prompt. Relatively close to a great area of Sarasota with several excellent restaurants. Also, very close to airport. Would likely return but only on points. Cash values at or above $500 are not good.

Beautiful hotel, exceptional attention to detail. I would highly recommend upgrading to their club level as the food and beverages offered are worth every cent. The Beach Club and pool are like nothing else in Sarasota (one of the only restaurants on the Gulf of Mexico). The beach area is small but Ritz not responsible for that. Sarasota refurbishes the beaches and should be completed soon. The spa is worth a visit as well and has a small but beautiful relaxation area with standard sauna, steam and jacuzzi.
