U.S. News Review

This Ritz is a clear guest favorite. Travelers find its luxurious amenities and attentive staff to be in a class all of its own, even when compared with other five-stars. The only thing comparable is its sister property, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, which is located approximately 4 miles away (there's a complimentary shuttle that goes to the Tiburon Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort). At this Ritz, you can relax at the massive spa and salon, which boasts 30 separate treatment rooms, or work up a sweat in the fitness center. Or feast away at one of the seven decadent dining options: Recent vacationers describe the on-site Gumbo Limbo restaurant — with its Floridian cuisine — as the perfect place to grab a bite to eat. Recent guests aren't as complimentary of the rooms, however. Travelers say the rooms (which recently underwent a renovation in 2013 and feature private balconies, 42-inch flat screen TVs and marble baths with soaking tubs) are subject to late-night noise.
