Means Take Puerto Rico

Pros: I loved the vibe of the staff and the closeness to the beach.
Cons: The only problem was getting pool towels - they were always out.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Ritz. We were greeted with drinks and smiling faces. Our hotel room was very clean and there was always someone to refresh your room at a moments notice. The morning breakfast buffet was awesome as well. We were in close proximity to walk at get a variety of food options. We rode the bus to Old San Juan (bus stop right outside the hotel) and was able to site see along the way. We caught an uber ride back (reasonable fair). 5 days in Puerto Rico was more than enough time to see it all and not have to try and cram it all in one weekend.

Exceptional hotel on the beach

Pros: Friendly Staff; Clean room; everything that I wanted was there (pool, beach, spa, retail, casino, restaurant).
Cons: Ask guest the time of returning flight. We had a 5 am flight and it would have been a great help to have someone available to bring our bags down.
Location: Old San Juan was very close; malls and restaurants were close also.
The outside was exceptional as well as the inside of the hotel. Staff was very welcoming and always pleasant. Room was very clean and furniture was up to date. Pool was open 24 hours so if you didn't want to swim with the kids you could wait until late in the evening to use the pool. The beach was great also; locals sold their items to you. I didn't hear an argument while at the hotel. Everyone was there to have a good time and I can confirm that the people I saw did just that. I will be coming back and have already recommended it to my family and they will be coming.

Room with a View!

Pros: I loved waking up every morning to opening the drapes and looking out at the blue ocean and beautiful landscape surrounding the hotel
Cons: It would be nice to have a daily newspaper delivered to the room.
Location: The location is Carolina Puerto Rico. Old San Juan is not to be missed with its colorful buildings, shops and restaurants--take and uber.
The Ritz Carlton chain, now owned by the Marriott Corporation, is always a safe decision if you want a luxury hotel. The hotel Assistant Manager ensured that we had a Jr. Suite with a full ocean view on the top floor. We were there for Mother's Day weekend and their Mother's Day Buffet was worth the price. The staff was attentive and eager to please. Amenities were abundant and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As with any hotel of this caliber expect higher prices and fees but we had expected this to be the case.

Constant up-charging When I checked in I was charged $75 of additional hotel fees in addition to your rate I live in Laguna Beach, the rates they charged for food and Drinks was as much as 200% hiogher then Laguna Beach... which is already high and it is Laguna Beach... not San Juan, PR. And it isn't everywhere. I had a great experience at the Candado Vanderbilt. I would NEVER go back to the Ritz

The Ritz

Everything was wonderful! From the room to the service to the location. My only complaint was that they held $2,205 on my card for incidentals which is a pretty hefty hold for incidentals especially when i was told only $250 would be on hold.......could have been a typo on the service desk end.

Very disappointing

Pros: Restaurant food was decent
Cons: Almost everything...
Location: Nothing close by
Very small crowded beach. Hotel very outdated and old looking, room with stained carpet and saggy mattress!! Felt like a 2 star hotel not a Ritz. TV shut down every 15 minutes or so, apparently programmed to do that. I had to log several times a day on the guest network... I will never go back and you shouldn't either, you can go somewhere else nicer for the price..

Nice but expensive hotel; very friendly staff

The room and other hotel facilities were very nice and the hotel staff is very friendly. The restaurants serve great food but are pricey. Overall, I was pleased with my stay.
