    This elegant Ritz-Carlton property sits on an eco-friendly reserve on Puerto Rico's northern shore and offers access to a mile of sandy shoreline and an 11-mile nature trail. While adults are teeing off on the three stunning 18-hole golf courses or indulging in a spa treatment amid the leafy canopy, kids can get acquainted with fellow resortgoers while participating in supervised Ambassadors of the Environment activities. Meanwhile, each of the resort's opulent guest rooms and suites boasts a balcony, a deep soaking tub and an outdoor shower. And the buck doesn't stop there. The waterfront COA restaurant offers locally inspired cuisine, including various dishes made in a custom wood-burning oven. Or, visitors can savor grilled meats and seafood at Encanto Beach Club Bar and Grill or fresh sushi, ceviche and tapas at Positivo Sand Bar. Overall, past guests praised the resort's cuisine and accommodations, although several warned that everything, from the dishes to the spa treatments to the room rates, is expensive. However, the property's daily resort fee covers perks like in-room Wi-Fi access and valet parking.

    At The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, you might have a hard time deciding whether to start along the resort's coral sands or inside your comfy lodgings. Recent visitors praised the guest rooms, which are outfitted with private balconies or terraces, soaking tubs, Asprey toiletries and minifridges. However, some lamented the pricey daily resort fee. You can reserve a tee time at the nine-hole, Greg Norman-designed golf course, schedule a treatment at the spa or make use of the resort's complimentary kayaks, rafts and snorkel gear. Or, park yourself on the sand. The resort offers a prime Cayman Islands location, extending 144 acres across the Caribbean to the North Sound, facing Seven Mile Beach's shoreline. When you're ready to refuel, head to Blue by Eric Ripert, or try one of the property's five other restaurants or bars. What's more, this Ritz-Carlton outpost falls under the Marriott banner, meaning Marriott Rewards members can collect or redeem points here.

    Most lodgers at The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun are wowed by the hotel's upscale atmosphere, especially in its common areas and 365 guest rooms. Decorated in tasteful neutral tones, the guest rooms come equipped with iPod docking stations, deep soaking tubs and furnished balconies or terraces overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The Ritz's signature elegance is also evident in the property's six dining establishments: Whether it's a grand dining room or a private canopied casita on the beach, guests are in for a decadent experience. And though some guests bemoan the steep price tags served with their meals, many say you should splurge for at least one meal here because the food is worth it. But The Ritz really shows its worth on the pool deck, with two pools, an oceanfront whirlpool and pool valet services. More active guests can strap on some scuba gear and take to the Caribbean Sea or practice their backhand with a pro at the Tennis Center. Located in Cancun's Hotel Zone, this Ritz-Carlton outpost is also part of the Marriott Rewards program.

    #6 in Best The Ritz-Carlton Hotels & Resorts
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2694 reviewsTripAdvisor (2694)

    The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island promotes extreme relaxation in a luxurious setting. Though the resort hosts weekly activities that range from paddleboarding excursions to surfing lessons, the serene setting just might seduce you to participate in the area's best extracurricular activity – lounging about in one of the resort's Adirondack chairs. Meanwhile, young families and swooning couples (including some honeymooners) all unanimously agree that the Ritz's staff couldn't be more accommodating. Plus, kids can enjoy an array of children's amenities, such as a kids club, a game room and in-room treats and bedtime stories with a pirate, a princess or the resort's macaw mascot. The par-72 golf course is also a hit, and foodies rave about the award-winning Salt restaurant. Recent guests also attest that the rooms are just as peaceful as the grounds. Enjoy ocean views from your private balcony and get a good night's rest with the 400-thread-count Egyptian Frette linens and goose-down pillows. What's more, accommodations here feature high-tech amenities like high-speed internet access and flat-screen TVs. Keep in mind that the hotel is a bit of a trek from the airport though.

    Located less than a mile inland from D.T. Fleming Beach on Maui's northwest coast, The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua  with its epic views of Molokai Island  is popular with travelers in more ways than one. The rooms are spacious and are dressed in a tropical-yet-refined style brought on by yellow and green decor and wrought-iron lanais (Hawaiian patios). Accommodations at this Ritz-Carlton also feature flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms and high-speed internet access. Past visitors are also bowled over by the quality of this resort's customer service: Guests say that the staff here worked hard to ensure a comfortable stay. While you're here, travelers recommend taking advantage of the pool. And if you're looking to unwind even further, splurge on a treatment at the spa. Others enjoyed the hiking excursions and other outdoor ventures with the Ambassadors of the Environment program. And at the end of the day, refuel with a full plate of fresh cuisine at Hook + Knife at Ulana, one of the resort's six restaurants. Staying here will cost you a pretty penny, especially if you include the $35 daily resort fee.

    Hugged by the hills of Marana, Arizona – 27 miles northwest of downtown Tucson – this Ritz opts for trendy over tradition, with contemporary art and sleek furnishings dominating the decor. And though The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain might not deliver authentic hacienda living, recent guests don't seem to mind the lack of traditional Southwestern style. (Besides, if you're craving a true taste of the region, you can simply make dinner reservations at CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar.) The spa and pool area make a great setting for some R&R, while golfers give high praise to the 27-hole, Jack Nicklaus-designed course (guests gain access to these amenities after paying a daily resort fee of $50). Travelers also appreciated the low-key elegance of the guest rooms, where plush fabrics feel homey while high-end features (like deep-soaking tubs and private balconies) feel deluxe. Yet despite all of its positive aspects, guests say it's the staff's friendliness that truly makes their stays memorable.

With a ski-in/ski-out location near the shores of Lake Tahoe, California, this Ritz allows visitors prime access to the slopes and two nearby championship golf courses. As for the hotel itself, on-site amenities include a tranquil spa and several gourmet restaurants. As far as lodging goes, recent guests raved about the large rooms, comfy beds and beautiful setting. Rooms and suites adopt a mountain lodge feel with stone fireplaces, wood trim and beautiful views. Guests generally loved their stay here, however, some visitors lamented the resort fee, especially given the hotel's high room rates.

But for many guests, the highlight of staying here was the exceptional level of customer service they received. Visitors say that the employees were friendly and respectful, providing an overall feeling of being treated like royalty (though you may have to shell out like royalty to stay here).

    Situated on the beach on Aruba's northwestern coast, this Ritz-Carlton outpost, opened in 2013, lives up to its brand's service, amenities and expectations, according to reviewers. Each stay starts with a complimentary welcome drink at check-in and extends to the spacious rooms, all of which feature marble bathrooms with separate showers and large soaking tubs, 46-inch LCD TVs and furnished balconies. Recent visitors described the staff at the front desk and the five on-site restaurants as exceptional. However, the property's cuisine receives mixed feedback. While some previous travelers enjoyed their dishes, others said their meals were average and expensive. When it's time to explore the hotel's offerings, adults can test their luck at slots or table games at the casino or head to the 15,000-square-foot spa to indulge in a unique treatment like a hammock massage or a Caribbean coconut salt scrub. This hotel isn't just for grown-ups, though. The Ritz Kids club entertains children ages 4 to 12 with activities like arts and crafts and board games. Plus, visitors of all ages can enjoy the hotel's two pools and beach, where water sports equipment like paddleboards, kayaks and snorkeling gear are available. And thanks to its Marriott ties, The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba participates in the Marriott Rewards program, allowing members to accrue or redeem points here.
