  • 6.0.Good

    Great location but activities felt simple and basic. Never really got the feeling of being in the desert, all close it in the property and always signs if civilization around. Honorable mention for the Kids Club: great organization, staff and quality. Not for the main pool that was so cold I didn’t see more than 2-3 people in it over 3 days stay (I went once... nearly froze to death). Pity as great setting and attentive staff, but broken thermometer for measuring water temperature 😬 Service is attentive but inconsistent; often not getting it right at the first shot but making up for it quickly and reactively. A nice property just not meeting my expectations for the Ritz brand and too pricey for the final product / experience.

    Perfect place for romantic getaway

    A beautiful property, ideal for a romantic getaway. While the overall experience was great, the lack of attention to detail made it a notch below perfect. You’d hear “sorry we can’t help with that” a bit too often than you should expect in a Ritz Carlton. The rooms are generous and clean, but need some TLC. Food is great by all hotel standards and dinner at the Farmhouse Was a highlight.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible service for a Ritz Carlton

    From misleading photos when we booked, to a pool that was 36 degrees, to repairs conducted for hours in our villa and many issues with housekeeping, this stay was terrible. When it was The Banyan tree it was great. We won’t stay here again.
