We've made two trips to Puerto Rico and stayed at four different Hilton brand hotels. We liked them all, but the Embassy Suites Dorado holds top honors on our list. Since others have detailed the many excellent features of this resort, we'll cite only two quibbles and report one encountered problem.
First, the quibbles. If you awoke one morning and found yourself at this Embassy Suites, you'd undoubtedly be delighted with your lovely surroundings and ocean view, but it could take some time to discover you're in Puerto Rico instead of dozens of other possible locales. Those interested in "experiencing" Puerto Rico will need to travel beyond the Embassy Suite's community gates to do so. Next, the road to/from the entry gate and the hotel is quite a distance. It's a reasonably attractive drive through a residential area and alongside the golf course, but you'll find dozens of speed bumps to slow your progress, harshen your journey and, at least in our case, irritate guests.
Finally, a good news/bad news complaint. Although we experienced only a small problem on check-in, our party of three was offered a sizeable voucher for use at one of the hotel's restaurants, so we elected to dine at the Paradise Cafe. While the decor was attractive and the service attentive, the preparation of our meals was a cut or two below what would be expected in an upscale resort hotel restaurant.
Overall, however, we found the Embassy Suites Dorado to be a very fine facility and, despite the general lack of "local flavor" on-site, we enjoyed our stay very much.
