debating between very good and excellent
jeff m, Minato, Japan

I definitely think this was an amazing stay, but there are some things to note for T.A. readers, hopefully you can not experience these items. Overall, very good to excellent stay- the excellent: overall service, condition of hotel, food quality, rooms, comfort of beds (wow!), quiet, beach was amazing, pools excellent. the needs improvement- policy of hotel or treatment of guests (if you have status in marriott/ritz/spg, it means little here from what i experienced) and rooms upgrades were being pushed to spend more money to upgrade; pricing of food in restaurants (I could swear I was supposed to get free breakfast as platinum level marriott/ritz). I will say overall, amazing property, great staff outside of front desk staff experience. One of the best beaches anywhere, it was like a bath outside of the wind.

Excellent Service...and Suggestion.

I was lucky enough to have stayed here for 5 nights. Our rooms were clean and the housekeeping staff was wonderful. Our housekeeper struggled with English, but she pulled our her phone and translated. She always was smiling and eager to help. The gentleman at the "adult" pool was the best. Of course I can not remember how to spell his name: Abedjl (?), but he was truly a gem. He was very quick to remember names and was always smiling and aware of what was going on. When I went to the pool area, he quickly grabbed a towel and we headed for the perfect spot. He looked up at the hotel and noticed a small child trying to climb through the bars of a room above the lobby. He quickly contacted security-out of my hearing as he should have done, and address the more urgent situation. He came right back over and thanked me for waiting. I appreciated the thanks, but in no way needed one. He accessed the situation and addressed it. Your company should feel honored to have such an aware and kind worker. I hope he gets the kudos he deserves. Since I have been back to the USA, I can't stop talking about that wonderful worker. I hope to visit again. Please consider using paper straws and recycling bins-or at least make them visible. Being that close to the beautiful water with all those sea turtles...it would help every creature (including humans).

BEST Casino Host at the Ritz Carlton!

My husband and I just recently came back from an awesome trip to Aruba and although we were not staying at the Ritz Carlton (stayed next door at the Marriott property) we spent many evenings over at the Ritz for either something to eat or to gamble....first off, the hotel is gorgeous and the staff is fantastic. Second, we met the NICEST and most accommodating Casino Host named Dyron Croes. He treated us fantastically, was beyond helpful and even came to visit us at our dinner in the hotel (Casa Nonna - fantastic). He is top notch and you should look for him or ask for him when visiting there! I know we'll go back just because of him! The Ritz Carlton should recognize him for his outstanding respect for people and for the hotel. We'll see you again, Dyron!

Everything about this resort is perfect. Hotel employees are friendly without being intrusive. Beach and pool are perfection. The services are perfect. You don't even notice when the room is cleaned, it just always seem to be cleaned. Tip: The limited view room has an awesome view!!! Also the weather was excellent in May (27 celsius)

Lovely hotel, fantastic staff and a great location - shame about the focus on corporate events

We've been the Ritz Carlton for the last few years with our young family and have consistently had a great time. Lovely hotel, great amenities, fantastic staff. We choose the Ritz for its location and the fact its a little quieter and relaxing/sedate than some of the livelier resorts on the strip. In years past we've had the odd day where a corporate event or wedding has been disruptive to our stay - last year a large wedding and DJ turned our last days into a dance party which was unfortunate - this year we had 4 separate corporate events during our 7 day stay, disruption to the family pool area, loud music from bands/DJ's drowning out the live acoustic music and early restaurant closures - all of which impacted us more so as we had young kids. Our final "relaxing" day in Aruba at the Ritz resulted in a corporate beach party, a DJ on the beach and no choice but to endure it the kids pool was closed and filled with corporate balloons and fishing line. In every respect this is a lovely hotel and resort with fantastic staff, but the focus on corporate/event management is undertaken at the expense of the average paying guest and the layout of the hotel means that corporate entertainment impacts the family pool area and beach disproportionately. Even the staff were left apologizing to guests at the bar, pool and restaurants as many were left with no option but to take a back seat. Unfortunate, but really took the edge off what should have been a far more relaxing luxury experience for the price. Regrettably, likely our last family visit to the Ritz Carlton Aruba. Such a shame as it really is a great hotel in a great location.
