I had an amazing time visiting friends at the Ritz today. Jordan and Alessandro were incredibly helpful in setting us up on the beach. They were kind and would even check up on us to see if we needed anything. Definitely coming back!

Colby set us up today with chairs, a daybed, and towels. He also provided us with waters after returning from the ocean. It was a great experience that I would recommend to all of my friends. I look forward to returning to the Ritz soon. -Cameron Chassen, BB Diplomat
