Reviewed yesterday NEW

Awesome service with a very personal touch. Check-in was a pleasurable experience for my wife and I. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and personable. Food was excellent. A bit pricey overall for other fine resorts in the area, but best service of all of them.

Everything from the service, room, dining and golf exceeded our expectations. We were disappointed with the pool only because it is dated and needs an upgrade. Would return again if plans take us to the area

So relaxing, great service, beautiful view from the separate cottages. Fresh air & Sunshine❤ Close to the village, which has interesting shops and restaurants. A perfect getaway weekend for us. They have a lovely restaurant and serve in a casual space open to the view of the ocean. Room service was excellent and reasonably quick. The Ritz is the best🌹🌹

Stunning location, The Navio restaurant had the best hotel food I have had in a long time - stunning treatment of seafood. Ritz-Carlton lived up to its usual promise. This is a good hotel for activities and outdoor treats.
