Dorado Beach is gorgeous. Best were the beautiful grounds and plantings. Food would be rated no better than good but room was superb. Air conditioning never got temperature down below 70. Staff was uniformly friendly. I suggest having bed covering lighter than the quilt which made sleeping too warm.

The public rooms , pools, gardens, fitness center and restaurants are lovely to look at and use. Our bedroom (West Reserve Beach) was a good size and well stocked. The staff is very friendly and gregarious but at times you feel...

This is the nicest most beautiful place I've ever stayed. The staff are amazing!!!! Service is superb!! The food was absolutely delicious. MiCasa dinner was the best - especially the paella. The concierge was fabulous and called me a few days before our trip to make reservations for me and tell me about some activities we could enjoy

We spent one week at this hotel and enjoyed every moment. The service, the selection of food and facilities were outstanding. But nothing compares to the vast, enormous area available to guests of the hotel: several golf courses, very long beach, beautiful Rockefeller trail, several lakes and a rainforest grove. To explore all of this the hotel kindly provides a...

There are very few things to find wrong about this beautiful and relaxing resort. The grounds and overall facility are spectacular. The staff is helpful and try hard. The fly (or coqui) in the ointment: the dearth of affordable restaurants. Particularly disappointing was the signature Mi Casa. Food was average; wait staff far below average. Hint: drop the attitude and...

Highly recommend. Was the perfect spot for a family get away right before the holidays. Something to do for everyone children and adults. Loved that it did not feel over crowded. The kids experience with waveboarding and kite surfing was amazing.

I have stayed at a lot of high end resorts and so far, this one is my favorite. The grounds and rooms are beautiful and the staff exceptional. I felt pampered the entire time. We made arrangements ahead of time with the concierge and had a customized itinerary for our stay including all activities and dinner reservations.

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
