Went to St Thomas decided to check out the Ritz residences, (along with Marriott Frenchman Cove and the Westin Frenchman Reef) Not sure what all the hype about the Ritz is/was. Upon arriving met with a drink and fresh cookie, which was nice touch. The lobby area was almost tacky def not high end looking. We had 4 nights booked in a 2 bedroom suite- Gardenia building 4th floor. Views were gorgeous, beautiful Sunrises. The villa was outdated (believe updates happening sometimes this year) very spacious. The pool was nice, nothing special. Very comfortable chairs around the beach and pool area. Beach area was nice, not much to really see there snorkeling wise. Best part was being close to Sapphire beach and Secret beach great snorkeling. Guess I really was expecting alot more being the "Ritz". I honestly feel the Westin Frenchman reef is way fancier/nicer. We stayed there a night and was blown away by the service, the views, everything in general. Shorebird for Breakfast- ($32 buffet worth it) Edge Bar for drinks were top notch outstanding views. Snorkel Sail on the new Frenchman Reef catamaran was exceptional. We went to Frenchman Cove-4 nights (went there last year so knew what to expect). Had a great villa- Jost Van Dyke building (4th floor) incredible view, great sunsets. Rented a car which worked for us, Paradise car rental super to work with. Some in expensive favorite eats, Tap and Still, Amore Pizza, Duffy Love shack. Happy to help/answer anyone heading there with questions.
