Marvelous hotel with plenty things to do. This hotel has great service, food, cleaning and location. It's very close to Redhook port which gives you easy access to St John (a very beautiful island worth to visit for a day).
If I go back to St. Thomas, surely I'll come back to this hotel.

Our family spent the last two weeks in December at the Ritz Carlton. It is definitely one of the nicest hotels we have stayed, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. We really like the small beach, which is generally easy to find beach chairs, unlike some other larger beaches which may get somewhat crowded, particularly around the holiday seasons. We also spent almost everyday at the Island Time, the onsite water sports center, which has all kind of activities including kayaking, paddle board, hobby cat and wind surfing. The wind surfing instructor Jeff is very knowledgable and friendly, and one of the best instructors we have known. Will definitely be back next year.

Stayed at the Ritz for 5 nights at the end of October and really enjoyed it. Tagged along while my husband was at a conference on property. The service was outstanding and really enjoyed the rum punch drinks they give you upon arrival. Our room was located in the Begonia building on the 3rd floor. There are stairs but wasn't a big deal for us. The view from our room was gorgeous. We were given a room with two beds since that was all that was available. Weather was perfect during our stay. Room was beautiful &n spotless; loved the spacious bathroom. We ate at all the restaurants on property with conference & food was decent. Favorite was Bluewater. Enjoyed the drink/food service at the beach but it was very pricey. Ordered a salad & it was $15 for a bunch of lettuce. Drinks were really good. Also went to the beach on the condo side to check it out; really nice & not crowded at all. Resort fee is very high at this property ($60 I believe) but included water sports. Did SUP which was a lot of fun; great for 1st timer since bay is protected from huge waves. Had private car service to/from airport. Highly recommend Perry at www.presidentallimousinevi.com They are veterans running a business on the island. Please utilize them if the need arises. Rented a private charter from St. Thomas boat rental with Capt. Nate; it was the highlight of our trip! Highly recommend. Would definitely stay at the Ritz again. Another note; maid service was exceptional & they always left us extra water and coffee for the nespresso machine.

This Ritz is on one of the nicest beaches in the the Caribbean, not just St Thomas. One suggestion to the hotel would be to clean beach from seaweed in the mornings, which would make it perfect.
Hotel service is super high, where everyone knows your name, and response time is instant. Hotel starting to show some wear and tear (on ritz standards) but we had a marvelous time. Super clean facilities and rooms. Would recommend highly and we anticipate a return visit soon.

My family of 5 spent the past week at the Ritz Carlton in St Thomas. It was beyond our expectations. We have had the pleausure of staying at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua last Christmas and had a wonderful time but this was far superior from a service and attention to detail perspective. First off, the lobby is not very large and I know that has been a complaint amongst some of our friends who have stayed here, however we felt that the lobby was a great reflection of the "culture" of St. Thomas. It is very functional and offers all the necessary services, it just isn't as large in scale. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. The bathrooms were also large and well appointed. The one thing that set this Ritz property apart from the rest was the staff and front house manager. The staff was always available and took care of ALL our needs. Also, Katrin, the front desk manager really made us feel special. She was extremely attentive and beyond kind. She was always informed of any issues we had and made a point to address them anytime we saw her. She really made a difference. In short, we know that we will b be back next Christmas and if we can all get our schedules to work we hope to stay for longer next time! A big thanks to the staff!
