Hotel is getting somewhat outdated in need of repairs. Eating areas and bars are somewhat small for the amount of guests using them. Views are to die for! One major concern I have with the staff was their lack of concern for one in our party who got their hand caught in a defective elevator door. Ice was required for the injury and it took over 25 minutes for staff to get the ice. Manager did not seem concerned!

Spectacular views from this outdoor patio / bar at the Ritz-Carlton!!! The food menu is tapas style and can be pricey... drinks are pricey too but who is complaining with the views like this ! ... Service is efficient, good for people watching or just staring at the blue pacific while sipping one of the signature cocktails.

My husband and I dined for lunch when we first arrived at the Ritz. Great view. We split the nachos were amazing and we enjoyed some drinks. Only complaint is that the wine is so expensive. I understand since it is the Ritz! But having some cheaper options would have been nice. Great service, food and view.

We had a Hawaiian ahi salad, and apple empanadas as dessert there were crispy and delicious. Portions are enough to satisfy but not huge, and the price is not as expensive as some other obscure restaurants in the region with less views and bad food. The view is breathtaking, there is a lot of seating outdoor with views for all of them, and the service is outstanding. It was one of the best times we had in an outdoor restaurant.
