My family of four stayed at the Ritz Residences over July 4th. The condo is well appointed and gorgeous, the views are spectacular as they include both a view of the Intercoastal and the Atlantic. Even better, on July 4th we got to see both nature's fireworks in the form of a brief lighting storm but a half dozen fireworks in the distance. There are a couple of casual restaurants within walking distance - we liked Johnny Longboat's the best. In addition, there is a corner market (Grator Gator) that has milk and stuff or you can either shop at the Publix across the bridge or do Instacart as we did.
The staff is everything in terms of excellence you would expect from a Ritz. At the lobby level, there is a movie theater room with about 16 movie theater style seats and a large screen can show Netflix or DVDs. There is also a social room with a pool table that you can also book for free. There are two pools, with one looking out to the beach and the other with nice cabanas. The beach is very nice as it is private, so you don't have to cram in with a bunch of people. The beach staff is excellent as well.
The only thing you should know is that the building probably needs a few more months to complete a refresh of the exterior stucco and decks of this two condo complex. As long as you know that up front, you should be fine as the beach is far from any complexity from construction.
This is a wonderful condo choice, a very good value and we hope to return many more times.
