Courteous staff, but small rooms, no coffee (only espresso) in rooms, super soft mattresses (too soft for me), very disappointing food particularly if you like salad, vegetables, flavor and healthier foods, plus you have to take a bus to the beach. Pool is ok, but small.

I'm no stranger to nice hotels, but have never been charged so many exorbitant fees for every little item. I paid a 30$ resort fee just to obtain internet access. This fee was supposed to include morning coffee or tea service, but when I asked the front desk for coffee, they instructed me to go get it at the restaurant...

It's an Upscale hotel as you would expect of a Ritz. The service was great, nice rooms, great gym., the food was excellent. The pool side service was wonderful. Horrible direction to get there. I drove around trying to find it for 30 minutes!!! VERY FRUSTRATING.

My first time at this hotel. I came for business and brought the kids along. The staff was wonderful in accommodating me, interacting with my children, not just during check-in but throughout the stay. The room was spotless and the Beach Club was a ton of fun. Would highly recommend for both business and family trips!

From the time of check-in, I knew this was a top notch property. Jack Dusty was a great treat for breakfast. Valet service was quick and very friendly. The hotel is within walking distance to many activities and restaurants. Impeccable service at every turn. Would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary while in Florida at The Ritz Carlton Sarasota. We were warmly welcomed and given a room upgrade. All the staff were friendly, helpful and sincere. The hotel beach club is a must see with a large clean pool and beautiful beach. The staff at the beach and pool set up chairs, umbrellas,...

Our second visit and as good as the first. Given an upgrade as there was a slight problem with our bill on the first stay. Had a room overlooking the pool and small marina at the back which was very nice. All the staff are very accomodating and friendly. Only gripe is that it took a while to get the...

My first time back in 4 years- since a big renovation. First the restaurant- Dusty Jacks - superb seafood. Both East and West coast oysters, waitress made a wine pairing suggestion without me asking, a French Chablis - perfect. Lunch the next day was biz- had fish of day swordfish- cooked perfectly, moist and tender- hard to do with swordfish....

The Ritz experience has always been nice but it is luxury that can be found in to many other places. This is an average hotel with an average location. You take a shuttle to get to the beach and a walk to restaurants and shopping.
