Ok trip

Would not recommend Mon, Jul 13, 2015
The person that checked us in was not very friendly. We decided to splurge a little and stay at the Ritz, probably a little out of place... The young man checking us in was very snobby and knew we were not the normal type of Ritz guest. he was arrogant and rude. Everyone else at the hotel was AWESOME! I would not stay here again though because of the way he made me feel at the beginning of our trip. The Bed was so uncomfortable we were unable to get a good nights rest. The bed felt like sleeping on a box spring... I am a Hilton Diamond member and have never slept in a hotel bed more uncomfortable that this one.

Service is Key

Would recommend Tue, May 26, 2015
You pay for the service and extra care. From getting presents for the baby to having a great private beach access, you get what you pay for. The only thing was that they put us on the first floor with no view because we got an online deal. You We will also probably bring our pack-and-play because the hotel baby crib looked like something out of the 1950s. Other than that, it was what you expect when staying at a Ritz.
