(1st-- ) this is Valet-Only parking and you know what that means. So be prepared when you hand your car off. If you need it again, call ahead as it takes awhile to get it back again. (2nd- ) the breakfast buffet is $28 per. If you think you can't eat $28 worth of breakfast, prepare yourself for a possible 45 minute wait to get your family's 3 waffles, 2 omelettes, 1 smoothie and a few muffins. And... If you ask a server for something to carry your muffins away in she might give you a polite 'of course' and then ignore you as she sets tables. Well, a napkin works too ( 3rd- ) if you bring a personal towel from home, housekeeping might carry it away when they clean ( so long favorite little towel...). (4th- ) Beach umbrellas are NOT part of the service (5th -) The in-room dining menu clearly states that kids 2 and under eat free. But, when you order a kids entree and tell them it's for your 18 month old, they might acknowledge it and then charge you anyway. (6th-) AND don't fail to hear room service when they knock and then have to call you up (from just around the corner). Sheesh! NOW the good stuff.... (1st- ) The 'Coast' dining was excellent- from staff to meal ... (2nd-) All the food was excellent from pool to cafes... Couldn't be better. (3rd-) The ground floor access to the beach was perfect. The little bridges over the tortoise habitats were very nice. (4th-) The morning coffee in the lobby was very good. And the in-room espresso was good also. (5th-) The greeters in the the lobby were very, very, very friendly... All 57 of them. (6th- ) Rooms were quiet (7th-) AND the false fire alarm didn't last too long (although I did go ahead and get the baby out of bed and jumped out on the patio) Ive been to MANY a high end hotel and stayed longer and have never had so many odd experiences as this. Shoot, I've stayed at A VARIETY of accommodations and never had this many odd experiences!

Room Tip: Beach folks-- get a ground floor room facing the beach

We were here for a business conference and really enjoyed our time at the hotel. The staff was always friendly and efficient. The weather was so nice that we spent most of our time at the pool. We loved the entertainment-the DJ on the first day and band on the second day. Servers at the pool were awesome, and the food (BLT salad) was excellent.

Our room was a coastal view since they were sold out of ocean view. We were on the 3rd floor and I would recommend requesting a higher floor for better views.
Breakfast room service was fantastic-we ordered in 2 days...always a favorite "to do" at the Ritz properties.

The shops were super cute with a Lily Pullitzer shop in the hotel and several cute boutique shops also in the hotel.

The Pub was fun for a night cap.

Overall, a great stay and would highly recommend!

This hotel is great! Not only is it beautiful but it is casual yet high end - great mix - very kid friendly yet were didn't have kids and didn't feel like it was a kid hotel if that makes sense. Great for couples and families. Beach is beautiful and so are the grounds. Staff is all super friendly

Our family of 4 stayed The Ritz Carlton Amelia Island over Easter break and we were thoroughly impressed by the incredibly professional service and amenities on offer at this hotel. From the moment we arrived the valet staff was incredibly quick and helpful and the check in staff was equally welcoming and extremely professional throughout. We stayed on the Club Level rooms and the club room offered a large variety of foods for different points in the stay that you could theorectcally eat all your meals on the club room. The staff address you formally and remembers things like your child's allergy which is very thoughtful.

The hotel is located on the beautiful Amelia Island beach which is peaceful and quiet. The hotel lays out lounge chairs for guest and there is towel collection area where staff helps you with the set up too. This is a modern hotel which retains traditional echos to professional attentive service in a beautiful setting. We will definitely be coming back as the entire family enjoyed our stay immensively.

Room Tip: Room with sea views are a must
