Would never stay here again
There is no doubt that this is a beachfront hotel. The view from the bar is amazing! The rooms however are not so amazing. We saw rooms #3 and #5, equally disappointing. We were initially given room 5, one window (covered by a strange curtain) looked directly into the kitchen. As a result this room was extremely noisy as close to the staff at work, obviously we wouldn't expect them to be quiet, just unfortunate that the room was positioned where it was. The shower was over the toilet, all a bit awkward to move around (and we're not on the large size). There were cockroaches in room 5, so the staff moved us to room 3, there were also cockroaches in that room. We acknowledge that this might be common in Asia, however, in room 3 the light in the room was on all night as could not be turned off making for a terrible nights sleep. We were told it was a solar light so couldn't be turned off (!?). We assume that some staff or people associated with the hotel stay in the rooms when empty as someone attempted to come into our room at 5am, thankfully they were put off by the door being locked. The décor was random in each room, curtains all over the walls. Perhaps there are some rooms that are acceptable but these two rooms were below expected standard. The staff working there were very polite and wouldn't have anything negative to say about them, it is not their fault that the hotel is below standard. We were due to stay for 2 nights but checked out after one night. Fair enough cockroaches are common in Asia but a room with a light permanently on is not common! We moved to a place up the road which didn't have any cockroaches and the light turned off to sleep. I would not recommend Ritzy and would never stay here again.
