First time to Aruba. Was somewhat concerned about our stay at the Ritz, due to prior reviews. So glad we kept our reservation, nothing but a beautiful and relaxing stay at this hotel. Celebrating our five year anniversary and the hotel staff reached out to us via email prior to our check in and made dinner reservations for us. Provided an upgrade in our room, greeted us with champagne.
The staff at the pool/beach were more than helpful, provided drinks, towels, rafts and really anything you wanted, they were absolutely wonderful. The food at the restaurant/bar was probably one of the best lunches we had during our visit.
The hotel was low key, very relaxing and the service was excellent.
The only negative is the location, very last hotel and the wind can make your beach time a little difficult with sand whipping you in the face at times.
