    Best vacation ever!!

    My first review ever, and I generally hate doing reviews. But we had such an outstanding time, the resort and the amazing staff deserves this review. We stayed for a week in July with our three young kids. As platinum members they were able to upgrade us to a larger room. Even without the upgrade we would of enjoyed our stay as we weren't in the room that much. Compliments to Marie and the front desk staff, especially Orpah, for handling all our requests with grace and diligence. Shaylea with guest relations was like an older sister to our kids. Owen and all the ladies at the pool were always there to lend a hand and a smile. Fe in housekeeping was super nice to our kids. They even have bumper stickers on their housecleaning carts that say practice aloha. I've enjoyed some great service at other Ritz hotels, and this was near or at the top of the list. The burger shack was our favorite. I think we had 4 dinners there. Amazing sunset view! We also had dinner at the Banyan Tree. It was also fabulous. Well worth the money. If you get an opportunity to stay at this property, take it!

    Great property but...

    This is an amazing location and it is kept absolutely beautiful. Everything was top notch and perfect for us EXCEPT the front desk staff doesn’t act or represent like the rest of the entire staff. The front desk is completely inflexible to customer needs. I requested months ago 2 bed hotel room. I wound up with a King bed and a rollaway bed for a toddler. They absolutely would not even try to make it right. My adult daughter had to sleep on the floor the first night. Finally, my travel arranger was able to get us moved the next day, but the front desk was not accommodating AT All. “I can’t “ translates to “I won’t”. No attempt to resolve my concerns. Everything else about the property and their employees was spectacular. The service and food was amazing. We rented the private covered beach chairs. $150 for the day and totally worth it. Most relaxing part of my trip. Anyone complaining about the prices obviously expects Motel 6 prices with Ritz service. We got what we paid for without complaint. Shout out to Joe who was working the morning breakfast buffet for our group. I didn’t have any personal interaction with him, but I observed the way he was around other guests. Super friendly and it shows he takes pride in making sure “his” guests feel like their at the Ritz. He epitomizes great attitude and spectacular customer service. Fix the front of house staff and this place would be perfect!

    Beautiful resort, excellent customer service

    PROS; - Friendly, accommodating staff. Everyone from the concierge, front desk, valet, restaurant staff, and cleaning crews, everyone was friendly. - Food quality was fantastic. Let me tell you that my family is a special, strange dietary family. I am vegan, my boyfriend has Celiac's Disease (allergic to all wheat products), and my boyfriend's son is allergic to fish. The restaurant staff in every section of the resort found a way to make us delicious meals. - Make sure you arrange activities through the concierge. You won't be disappointed. - Spa services were great! My only wish was that I planned out more time to take advantage of their services! Women's area had a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, showers, and lounging area. It was incredible. - The grounds were so beautiful. Even though we did activities outside of the resort on a couple of days, we were very happy with the pool, restaurants, and general environment of the Ritz. - You may think to yourself if staying at the Ritz is worth the money. Trust me, I got my money's worth. You could even save money by going to the local grocery store down the street of the hotel and cooking in your room. Full kitchen accommodations in the rooms! CONS: - Literally, my only thought is that the massage I had could have been slightly better in quality. However, I was still pleased with my entire experience at the spa and appreciated how friendly and warm my massage therapist was. I would still get a massage there if I lived in Maui!

    Amazing Property

    Stayed for 3 nights. Beautiful property! Rooms are spacious. We had a view of the lawns above the pool. Would definitely go back here. Played a round of golf at The Bay Course. It was fantastic as well.
