    Wonderful staff

    Beautiful hotel in a beautiful place, but the staff were really what stands out. We got great restaurant recommendations from Kendrick at the front desk (Zeerover's was awesome), and amazing cocktails from Blanca in the lobby bar and Jose in the adorable pop-up bar.

    Ritz will have a special place in our hearts

    We spent a week here and brought our 6 mount old baby Michael and what a great experience it has been. From great restaurants, beach to all the amazing people who work at the resort. Special thank you to head of client services, Eric, who made our boy feel so special. We were so touched by his thoughtful cards and gifts! I would definitely recommend Ritz Aruba as a family friendly resort. Thank you, Eric and team! We will be back.

    Beware the large corporate crowds

    Not a true Ritz Carlton but a solid hotel. This has turned into a corporate retreat for company sponsored trips. They take over the resturants, bar and pools making you feel like you are crashing the party. The location is somewhat inconvenient as they are at the northen end of Aruba. Many better options including the Hyatt which I still consider the best in Aruba.

    Lots of staff, not so much service...evidence of further Marriott decline & nickel/diming

    Overpriced for the service, quality of food and overall maintenance of the property. Much better value in Mexico, Turks & Caicos, Bermuda, etc. Typical to see staff loitering about, but not offering service. Also, several staff alluded to the fact that the mgmt was not very staff friendly and the island was run by corrupt officials. Let's be honest, most visitors could care less, but having traveled all over the world, I would rather give my $$ to people who are trying to make the world a better, not worse, place. Lobby: crowded, loud music (club atmosphere at night); every day bags were piling up for guests waiting for their rooms. Casino in lobby. Rooms: average for RC; spacious bathrooms. Restaurants: lobby Asian food is below average, way overpriced. Breakfast buffet is above average, quite good, $36 pp ($17 for kids under 12) however, it is pushed very hard by wait staff vs a la carte (aka self service); same restaurant turns into Italian at night and for lunch which is pretty good, but also overpriced; BLT steak is also below average and too expensive. Poolside restaurant is well below average esp for $$. Pools: kid pool is small for size of resort, not well maintained. Adult pool is nicer and adequate. Beach: this is how this property gets away with how they are run. The beach is top notch, unique - shallow, gentle waves. Worth the visit, but consider another hotel. Aruba in general: dusty/dirty, not well developed; poor food options on the island (every restaurant has the same menu: ceasar salad, greek salad, eggplant and chicken parm, seafood, steak). Also annoying to see the corrupt govt not providing for the citizens or developing the island in a good way. With the tourism revenue, this place should be much much better developed. Costs for family of 4: $1000 per night approx for the regular room; $100 for b-fast, $100 for lunch, $150-200 for dinner. Nickel & diming: pay for everything! How is that luxury? $300 per day for a cabana; pay for shuttle/cars to downtown; $90 per day resort fee (!). cmon, with what they charge and the quality, it should all be included. it is in Mexico!

    25th Anniversary Trip

    We have the most wonderful time celebrating our 25th anniversary at the Ritz Carlton. It started with Christian upgrading us to an ocean front room on the 6th floor. He was so accommodating and friendly, the perfect first interaction. We had lunch at the restaurant everyday. We found the food to be delicious and the drinks strong. We started the first few days on the beach and got a front spot. We are early risers and did not feel 6:45 was early for a front spot. We enjoyed floating in the clear water everyday. On Easter we rented a cabana at the adults only pool. It was a splurge but we enjoyed it. That is where we met Gregory and Andrea who were always around to serve us with a smile and recommend drinks. Gregory alone would be a reason to come back. Our room was always cleaned with extra expresso, water and creamers. Everything was spotless. Before dinner we always had a cocktail or 2 at the lounge to watch the sunset. It was a perfect way to start our evening. We had no problem getting a taxi for dinner. Only one night did we wait maybe 10 minutes, otherwise we were the only ones out there. I cannot say enough about our trip. We hope to be back sooner than later.
