Web pictures aside, the hotel is NOT on the beach. Have to ride a hotel bus that runs on intervals (30 minutes or an hour) to go the 3.5 miles to their beach facility (which IS very nice). Heard same comment from several others. Also, we had a "marina view" room, which was no longer an appropriate description. Two buildings...

Love this hotel and location. All you need is here. Beach and pool and shuttles to make it easy. Service phenomenal as expected by a Ritz Carlton. Nice location to the city of Sarasota and to st Armand's circle.

The Club level & staff were the best we've ever had, as was the floor & drinks served. The location & nearby construction was a major drawback. Hard to walk to anything. Our Marina view was obstructed & construction started at 7am sharp. There are many buildings under construction so I don't think this is short lived.

Great place for fun and serious medical conference. Service and accommodations were first class, but comfortable not stuffy. The meeting rooms were professional, the food and bar service were great. Able to relax and enjoy 5 star hotel!

If you want a luxurious vacation, it was worth every penny. The location and beach club are beautiful, the employees are genuinely the happiest, most helpful staff I have ever experienced. The Sarasota sunsets on the beach at the Beach Club were beyond gorgeous.

Deluxe all the way. Wonderful, service, rooms and food. Can't wait to return. First class beach club which is only 10-15 minutes away - with convenient shuttle. Wonderful spa with deluxe exercise area.
