My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island. The hotel is very nice. The staff were very accommodating. Seeing the ocean from our suite every day was beautiful. We had dinner at the Salt restaurant located in the hotel. The food was very good. We had a wonderful time and we will be back. :)
"Beautiful Hotel right on the beach+dining shopping"
One Ocean is 20 min from airport (Used UBER for $38.00) and worth the trip. Not too many 4 & 5 stars in DT Jacksonville. This hotel is in an area of excellent restaurants and shops all walking distance, as well as bars and cigar lounges. A little bit of an older crowd-30+ but some taverns and pool halls with smoking! We were in town for a Jacksonville Arena event and the commute was fine-$30.00 to Jacksonville via cab. Ask staff for dining, and taxi info. They are great helpers. Hotel is clean, food good (ordered room service at 1:00am) avail. 24/7. Pool is the most beautiful and warm I've ever seen (at night) and overlooks the beach, directly accessed on the property. Swim at dark-a lifetime memory in the pool area-blue water and orange torchlight's. DVD player and movies are free as well.
Booked as a birthday weekend getaway for my daughter with her husband and 5 yr old child. She can't stop talking about how nice everything was and says it was a great birthday idea. They especially enjoyed the nature trails with play areas and talking bird along the way. Having the trolley take them to the various areas of the resort was a very nice experience. They also enjoyed dinner at the Veranda. Nice presentation of the meals.
We only stayed at the villa for one night; however, it was clean and comfortable. The hotel and resort staff were friendly and helpful. The resort is beautiful and peaceful. We had dinner on site at the Falcon's Nest which was very good. Overall, this was an excellent experience and we would stay again.
