Eau Palm Beach Review

In the coastal town of Manalapan (just south of Palm Beach), this sublime, glamorous destination resort (formerly the Ritz-Carlton) showcases a newer, younger face of luxury, including a 3,000-square-foot oceanfront terrace, two sleek pools, a huge fitness center, a deluxe spa, and richly upholstered furnishings with contemporary, beachy patterns. The luxury of the guest rooms includes amenities like marble baths and lovely balconies, most with ocean views. Coconut palms shade the pools and courtyard—all of which are served by attendants who can fulfill whims from iced drinks and sunscreen to cool face towels. A pirate-ship-themed playground and family entertainment suites with mini rock-climbing walls, a DJ booth, and more keep children of all ages busy (the structured half- and full-day programs carry an extra fee). The signature restaurant, Angle, is a contemporary American supper club that fulfills your wildest foodie fantasies like legendary caviar tacos.

    Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach Review

    A bit of a disappointment - my boyfriend and I knew it was off the beaten track but had no idea that there would be no shuttle service or public transportation available to get around. That still would have been ok because what we really wanted to do was just unwind and rent bikes and be low key but then the bike rental place no longer delivered (this happened between the night we arrived and the next morning) and the Ritz didn't even try and address the issue. Only one restaurant was open and it really was only so-so. The wine list left something to be desired. And while the staff was very nice and meant well I wouldn't put them up there with the professional category that I usually experience at Ritz hotels (or their key competitors)

    On the plus side the spa is spectacular - really probably one of the nicest I've been too.

    But that didn't make up for the downfalls. Oh well live and learn and least we got out of the NE cold and had a little sun for a few days.

    PS I totally agree that the shower is small and water pressure pitiful.
