My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at The Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island. We went there for a quick anniversary getaway (2 nights) and had a great time. They are in the process of building a new spa (should be open in November) so the spa and salon is temporarily located on the 2nd floor but we both had great experiences there (massage for husband, pedicure for myself).
The hotel was lovely and the service was superb. We did have a problem w/the valet somehow scraping/denting our car but they handled it very well and will call this week with a claim number, etc. so we can get it fixed.
Amelia Island is a beautiful area and you can even go horseback riding right on the beach. We didn't take advantage of that this time but definitely will when we return. The pool area at The Ritz was nice and the resort is right on the beach. Although we didn't bring the kids this time, there were plenty of children there and they do have a children's program called "Ritz Kids" where they offer fun activities for children. I highly recommend this hotel.
