Need Ritz Reserve/Dorado Beach education

My wife and I got married at the former Hyatt Dorado Beach and plan on returning in the spring for our 15 year anniversary. Have not been back since our wedding and obviously the Hyatt is now the Ritz Reserve. The hotel is beyond our financial comfort zone and the neighboring Hyatt Hycienda would not do the trick. We are contemplating a Reserve vacation rental but are confused when we look on VRBO and other similiar sites.


- Do all Reserve vacation rentals have full access to the Reserve hotel, beach, gym etc?

- What is the difference between east and west Reserve locations?

- Is the Dorado Beach Club a section of the Reserve?

- Is the beach at the Reserve public or private?

- Does the town of Dorado have lots of quality restaurants to visit for dinner?
