Beautiful Resort

Just a lovely, peaceful resort. The staff were very attentive and extremely nice, friendly and helpful. The concierge was very helpful recommending restaurants, etc. Booked our own sight seeing trips. The tour group staff in the alcove by the elevators were not very helpful. We tried a couple of time to book trips, but, they were not very informative or did not seem to have the time to work with customers.

Best Vacation!!

We purchase our vacation through Cheap Caribbean. The Ritz Carton was amazing and it's very beautiful. We love the beach at Isla Verde the waves tides isn't so high, even my seven years old could swim. The only thing that is when you dine-in at oceanfront restaurant the staffs seem to be more interested to them self. We got seated right away, but I actually have to stand up to get a server to takes our order and we weren't the only who got up. But over all,we would come back again. Maybe next time won't dine in at Oceanfront restaurant.

Dissapointed

Very friendly and attentive staff. This was the highlight of my stay. The hotel is in a pretty good area where you can walk around to restaurants and bars. Disappointed on the quality of the hotel. this is definitely not what it is expected of a RITZ CARLTON. This is a very basic hotel with RITZ CARLTON prices. The hotel rooms are very basic and not at all what I have seen at other RITZs hotels. The pool is clean but small compare to others around in the same vicinity. The beach is perfect and makes up for the lack of a good pool. I did have to call the front desk every day for them to give us towels. Also, the day cleaning staff did not do a very good job cleaning. I even had to ask for toilet paper and to have the staff come back to clean the bathroom as it was left dirty. I contacted the front desk, and they did fix it every time, but did not see any managers nor did any manager come talk to us about our issues although I did express to the front desk that I was very frustrated having to call everyday. I could have pushed it but, I did not want to ruin our vacation as we were already disappointed with the hotel. Overall, would recommended it as a last resort. Additionally, I had the private service come to pick us up. this is a waste of time and money. save your money and call the hotel to come pick you up. The trip to the hotel took less than 10 minutes and we waited 20 minutes to get to the bus.

Good not great tho

I spent 5 days at the ritz san juan, overall all i can say it was an ok trip, the heat was a little much but i knew it would b4 i went and obviously thats knowones fault. Anyways i first got there and got service right away everyone was so nice inside and outside, after checkin in got too my room and was very clean and perfect size for me and my girlfriend and right away through our bathing suits on and walked around the resort having a few drinks after having a long plane ride,drinks were great and not to expensive the next few daus were relaxing and also had fun so long story short overall it was a good trip. Negatives-- got to room and first night went to bed and on top of the mattress was a bid down mattress cover that was very uncomfortable and i checked the actual mattress and it seemed like an actually nice confortable mattress so idk y they wood put a cover over it that was down and clearly washed cuz any1 with a down quilt or pad knows it can become all unporportioned and get lumpy. Also the sheets on the bed were a very low thread count and a very rough cotton so wasnt too comfortable on ur skin (especially a few days in the sun and somewhat burnt) Also in the bedroom was a smoke detector right on the side of the bed that constently blinked and night time going too bed was pretty annoying when trying to sleep and you have a constent green light blinking literally every 2 seconds The food there was also terrible in my opinion i know alotta people will disagree but couldnt get into the food in or out of the resort. So overall like i said i give it 3 outta 5 stars because the staff was nice all the concieges amd doormen were there to help u in seconds also the pool and beach was amazing and definately well kept up with, the whole resort was great but i like my sleep so i gave to take points away for the uncomfort of the room dont get me rong it was clean but definately uncomfortable and also the food was not up to par and nothing really caught my eyes so 3 outa 5!! Thank u again tho to all the staff

It's no secret that Ritz-Carlton hotels aren't cheap. However, The Ritz San Juan is so worth it. Just remember, you get what you pay for!
