Love, Love, Love RC Amelia Island

This resort is full of southern charm.  Not your typical "Florida" getaway, or at least what comes to mind when you think of Florida.  It's much more Southern, like Georgia or the Carolinas.  The staff is absolutely gracious and accommodating.  Over Spring Break the place is loaded with families of all ages - little kids, school age and teenagers.  It's very accessible for everyone.  We've been twice and would definitely go back.

We didn't love this property. The staff had great attitudes but the room seemed dated and over-priced. The hotel was appropriate for business travelers/conferences but not special enough for leisure travel.

This was not our first visit to the Ritz AMI, but it had been several years since our last visit. Overall, it is a wonderful Ritz property. It is starting to show some signs of age, but it did not impact our stay. The bathrooms need updating and the pool area is smaller than others. We experienced both golf and spa and would highly recommend both. The lobby sushi bar was outstanding and Salt never disappoints. The beach at AMI is wonderful, easy to walk or jog. Overall, the service was top notch, although there were a few isolated instances we did not feel the level was that you would expect from a Ritz. Our room was not cleaned the first day, and when we called down that evening, the service that was completed while we were at dinner was not great. We also had a plate of obviously eaten desserts left over from the 4th of July celebration that sat in our room for the rest of our stay, even though we mentioned it to the staff.

We celebrated my wife's 50th birthday and it was a very pleasant surprise and exceptional services provided by the staff at the club level Lounge. She was really overwhelmed with the celebration and the special treatment she received from the hotel staff. This was a great trip and will be a very memorable moment in our lives. Big kudos to the entire staff at the Ritz Carlton Amelia island, we will be back.

Perfect Escape!

The room itself was just amazing. Our balcony was directly facing the ocean so we literally woke up to the ocean each morning. We ordered room service every morning because we wanted to take each morning slowly. Ariel, one of the room service employees, delivered our breakfast 3 out of the 4 mornings and she was so pleasant. She took the time to make sure everything was as we’d expected before she left and always made sure the mimosa’s didn’t spill a drop! I had a 2 hour Honey Body Wrap Treatment. My masseuse was fantastic. I didn’t have to think about a thing and I felt truly pampered each second. It was relaxing to sit by the pool at the spa, get some lunch, sit in the hot tub, and relax in the steam room. I encourage anyone who is a working mom with toddler aged kids to take the time and treat yourself with a get away like this. The Ritz was perfect because there wasn’t a single detail overlooked and each employee was incredibly friendly and helpful!
