The Ritz-Carlton Suite
Key selling points: Panoramic Atlantic Ocean views from balconies perched high above the coastal capital are a dazzling backdrop to elegant soirees—think whitewashed living room, dining area, and kitchen—as well as quieter evenings. The bedroom boasts the suite’s third balcony, in addition to a king-size bed and oversized bathroom with whirlpool tub.
Standout service: When a couple lost their passports and IDs en route to the property, a staff member helped them locate their missing documents.
