This hotel had far more families with children than I expected, which I did not like. I expected a little more of a luxury experience and found the many children definitely detracted from my experience. It would be nice if this hotel had more adult-only options.

The staff was amazing. Gracious service and they really went above and beyond. Compared to other Ritz Carlton locations however, the Sarasota location lacked pizazz. The beach club was a nice amenity but it felt like the main hotel fell short. The front desk service was not as welcoming, room was not fully stocked with water and missing shampoo. All in all, it was a great experience, it was just lack luster compared to other locations.
