A vacation at the Ritz-Carton, St. Thomas is an experience to remember forever.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

The resort fee includes unlimited use of non-motorized water equipment - paddle boards, snorkel, sail, etc. Staff was very helpful about how to use (we paid for only one sailing lesson). Be sure to check out these offerings first -- we waited until the third day of our stay to check out what was available and do-able for us (we are older), and then wished we had started sooner so that we would have had more time for the water sports activities.

Typical Ritz treatment

Overall great stay! Room was spacious and clean. Well appointed. View was lovely, and hotel grounds were immaculate. Only problem was the lack of dining choices that were open on site. It was the off season so it's acceptable. Overall 5 star experience!

27th Honeymoon

Never met a staff that does a better job of making your stay a wonderful experience. Views can't be beat. Location is quiet and private. Truly Paradise. My favorite was the water sports activities were included in your package.

Taxis to Red Hook Bay for entertainment, ferry to St. Johns and fun dining are inexpensive so no need to drive yourself.

Ritz Carlton family vacation

This was a beautiful property! Surprised at how many steps there was though. Nice staff. Not near enough gift shops/stores on property. Disappointed that the ritz Carlton did not have any shuttles or cars for their customers. Had to use taxi cabs to go everywhere. Didn't expect that. Overall, we did love it and had a great time!

St.Thomas Ritz Carlson

We stayed for a night fore going home after sailing the BVI for a week. I was a great way to re-enter. We really enjoyed our stay but I could not give it the extra star. I have been to many luxury resorts includuding the Ritz Carlson's and it just was not quite not up to the same caliber.

Always Amazing!!!

We discovered this gem about 6 years ago and have been back 4 times. You may say that's boring going to the same place...well soooo not true. It’s the RITZ! The amenities are everything a person could want on vacation. Slip off to a private quiet spot or have great conversations with other guest around the infinity pool and at the bar. These is a PERFECT location to get everywhere you would want to go...St Thomas Red Hook is a 5 min. cab ride to great restaurants or catch the ferry over to St. John to visit some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Can’t wait to go back!!!
