4/10 Fair

Duty of care failure
The issue is that this hotel has no emergency medical bag. We had an issue and they had not even then most basic tablets. In the middle of the night where it can take a while for a doctor to arrive this is unacceptable. And dangerous. The Ritz has an obligation to its customers and on this dimension it fails completely. They refuse to buy even the most basic of emergency medicine.

2/10 Poor

This place is not safe for families
We paid $38,000 upfront, for 3 rooms, 4 nights, party of 6. We had a hint this was not a typical Ritz experience when for 6 weeks calls and emails seeking assistance for dinner, excursions and such, were never returned by the property. Even when we arrived, the dedicated concierge staff in the lounge never followed through with anything for us (i.e. when the shift changed they forgot about restaurant and spa reservations we spent hours inquiring after). They have run low on bath towels so 3/4 nights we are drying off with hand towels. One attempt at using room service resulted in a 2.5 hour delay. The worst situation was a very drunk guest in the lounge became belligerent, verbally abusive and ultimately vandalized our hotel room door after a rather innocuous exchange about the television remote in the club lounge. The staff failed in every way to recognize, acknowledge and intervene and ultimately we were put to the task of dealing with the St. Thomas police over the incident. There is no security and extremely poor management here. When I was asked by loss prevention what we wanted them to do, I told them, “handle it so we can carry on with our vacation.” They did the polar opposite; summoning our whole family at 11 pm to the front desk. I pleaded, my husband has COPD and can’t take the stress. He was barefoot in pajamas, no contact lenses, his wheelchair in the room and these monsters told us to calm down! It’s just, someone they overserved did call our 15-year-old a c&nt.

Excellent service, staff that anticipated your every need. Cleanliness, friendliness. Excellent food & drink. The most comfortable bed ever! Quiet grounds that enhance relaxation and bonding with family & friends. Also plenty of activities to do in the grounds ie; cornhole, basketball, etc. Bars strategically located throughout properties.
