    Ritz Carlton. A bit dated but gréât staff

    As always with Ritz Carlton, service and staff are impeccable. Grounds are very nice and the beach club only accessible via a shuttle service is outstanding. The hotel itself is a bit dated and could use a refresh. Rooms are spacious and design of the room is very nice.

    Staff is the best!

    We visit Sarasota a few times a year but it’s been about a year since we stayed at the Ritz. The hotel is starting to show its age and I wish the rooms had a modern standing shower instead of a tub, but at this hotel it’s all about the staff. From the moment we arrived Javier greeted us with a smile and took the time to chat with us. When we went out he wanted to know where we went and if we enjoyed ourselves and offered many great suggestions. We spent most of our time at the beach club as the pool in the main building had a more limited menu for both food, drinks and service. I wish I had found the champagne bottle vending machine earlier as I could’ve enjoyed this by the main pool. Tyrese and David at the beach club took care of us the entire time. When the pool felt as hot as a sauna David would dump some ice so it would feel more refreshing. It did even if it was just for a few minutes. The staff here is amazing! Can’t wait to return soon!

    Great Ritz-level experience.

    A quick mother- daughter getaway with my college aged daughter! Truly a great experience and impeccable service - we stayed in a room on the club level which was wonderful ! The club level concierge and staff were so helpful and friendly, and the food offerings were yummy! Loved a glass of champagne before dinner ! Jack Dusty’s was great for dinner and even served my favorite Merry Edwards sav blanc! We travel quite a bit and enjoy staying at various Ritz properties in different locales- this property is too notch!
