Every guest is certain to enjoy spectacular views when residing at The Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas. All 180 rooms face the Caribbean Sea and each features a private balcony. This has proven to be a favorite place for guests to practice yoga, enjoy a good book or relax with some champagne and appetizers. The resort is accommodating of all types of guests, with adjoining rooms for families or handicap accessibility for those in need.
Often times guests are originally excited by the plethora of activities available to them, such as chartering a boat to the neighboring islands of St. John, Tortola or Virgin Gorda. However after getting into vacation mode, several guests decide to just disconnect, relax and hang out by the pool. The resort makes this easy by charging a $58 resort fee, which includes all beach activities, tennis and Internet.
Guests are able to dine at the delectable Blue Water, the casual Great Bay Lounge, which is open late for night owls, or Coral Reef. We were lucky enough to indulge at the Coral Reef, and I have to say the fish tacos were the best meal of my trip. Whatever you and your travel partners are looking for, The Ritz Carlton is sure to relax you and indulge all your senses.Recommended for:Family Travelers

I never saw a Ritz Carlton that I didn’t like! That goes for this one. Secluded, exclusive, when you drive up to the front entrance, with its uniformed bellmen, both efficient and welcoming, you say, “Nice!”
Yet, the public areas do not have the WOW effect like some of its larger more glamorous sister hotels. The hilltop view of the water is eye-stopping, as are the glass-enclosed displays of clothing, purses, jewelry, etc. It was explained that the boutiques are ultra-appealing so that guests do not feel the need to go downtown or anywhere. Encouraged to stay within the compound, most are pleased to do just that, to de-stress. The elaborate pool complex is enough to persuade one. The beach is delightful with the water so clear and green that you want to just run in, clothes and all. The hotel’s catamaran takes guests to nearby St. John.
Lunch was pleasing, and it can be served at your chaise or Indonesian bed. I enjoyed the spiced, grouper sandwich, yet prices seemed way high. The rooms are fine-looking, of course, and traditionally furnished. The spa and the building housing the Club Level, unfortunately, were closed -- being refreshed. Even children are catered to at the Club with their own kiddie menu. Nice.
