Fodor's Review

This is a regal Ritz-Carlton, with marble statues and antique furnishings blended with artistic modernity in the rooms, and restaurants that now breathe airy light-blue and natural tones. A short stroll from the stately lobby is a beautiful white-sand beach dense with seashells to match the hotel's ocean-elegance style. Given the graciousness of the staff, you quickly get over the incongruity of traipsing through the formal lobby in flip-flops, clutching a plastic bag of beach finds. In the rooms, the comforts of home prevail—assuming your home is plush and stocked with your favorite wine (yes, repeat guests don't even have to ask: what you consumed last time is well noted). The posh spa is one of the Ritz-Carlton brand's first and largest, offering a complete (and divine) menu of indulgences including its signature lemongrass basil scent. The resort has seven restaurants (sushi bar and lobby lounge tapas bar among them), the museum-quality Nature's Wonder center with aquariums and colorful environmental exhibits geared toward kids, and an übercool electronics gaming room.
