Lovely facility overall. Nice staff. If you're an avid golfer you may be disappointed. Only one of the three courses are resort quality. One they shouldn't even allow play on as it's beyond terrible. They could use one more restaurants for variety sake.

My wife and I were absolutely stunned by the beauty of this hotel and the level of attentiveness of its staff. It is pure luxury but does not feel stuffy in any way - it is relaxed but elegant, quiet, impeccably clean and well cared for, and totally secluded. If you seek pampering and perfect relaxation, this is the place...

So, it has been 4 days since my husband and I got back from the Ritz Dorado Beach and we haven’t stopped thinking about it. This was our 1 year wedding anniversary trip and we could not have picked a better place to relax and escape the hustle of everyday life. Beginning with the second we arrived on the property,...

Wonderful experience at the Dorado Ritz Reserve. From the Personal Concierge attendant throughout the trip to the Five Star Spa to the Fabulous Pool/Beach experience. You cannot go wrong with First Class Service at the Dorado Ritz!

Second bedroom has two queen beds with very nice bathroom and plenty of room. Dining area and living room provide plenty of space off of the kitchen with...

This was by far the most outstanding trip we have ever taken (even compared to other Ritz properties). It was absolute perfection from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. I've never been so pampered and felt like an experience/vacation was personalized so much for me and what we like and wanted to do.

The hotel truly made our anniversary very special. The staff at the hotel personalized our experience and really made us feel like we were the only ones at the resort. The spa is the best I've ever experienced and highly recommend the massage in the treehouse. For special occasions we recommend dinner on the beach. Also, recommend the nighttime snorkel...

We were greeted with popsicles and smiles. And it didn't end there. I have never been soo impressed with an establishment as I was with this ritz Carlton. Patricia,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Somewhere between idyllic and perfection sits a Puerto Rico resort of such intimate luxury and rare character, it calls to those who believe every journey should be a voyage of discovery. Once a 1,400-acre sugar plantation owned by the Livingston family, Dorado Beach caught the eye of conservationist visionary Laurance S. Rockefeller, who in the 1950s transformed the lush landscape into one of Puerto Rico’s most exclusive luxury resorts. With its serene coastline, private residences, spa sanctuary, golf courses and a harmonious sense of place that blends masterfully into the natural surroundings, Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve invites guests to arrive spellbound – and depart speechless. ... more   less
