The best hotel in Sarasota - amazing beach club ❤️

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton for 4 days - rooms are very spacious and tea, coffee and water provided together with luxury toiletries. The beds are also very comfortable. We took the daily shuttle to the beach club as there was building work ongoing next to the swimming pool at the hotel. The shuttle also stops at Armands Circle where there are many shops and restaurants ( the shuttle leaves the hotel on the hour and returns from the beach club at half past the hour). We had a breakfast inclusive rate which was served from an a la carte menu in Jack Dustys restaurant. The marina is close by and its definitely worth popping in to the Westin rooftop bar if you are venturing out. There are lots of restaurants in Sarasota (Element has a shuttle service that does free pick up and drop off - excellent steaks). This is definitely the best place to stay if you are in Sarasota - as well as excellent service you get the benefit of being within walking distance of downtown Sarasota and the Marina, combined with the shuttle to beach.

One of the Best Ritz Resorts

We just finished a two week stay at the Ritz Carlton Sarasota, and it's easily one of the best and most enjoyable Ritz resorts we've stayed in. The key is the Beach Club, which is a gorgeous facility located on a wonderful, walkable beach. We used the pool for sitting and the beach for walking, and the staff couldn't do enough for us, particularly Lori, Bill, Brianna, and Laura at the pool, and David at the valet desk. Great place to have lunch overlooking the pool and beach. The main hotel is very comfortable -- our room overlooked the marina. All of the staff were terrific, but particular kudos to Kent at the front desk, and Ivan in Loss Prevention. Because of the Coronavirus, things began to close in Sarasota during our stay, and toward the end the restaurants had to close, but the hotel adapted wonderfully with takeout service for breakfast in the room, and lunch at poolside. We'll be back next year for sure.
