“Wonderful place, we love it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

Great resort. Very helpful staff and great location. Our 1 bedroom suite was very nice - clean and pleasant. Grounds were beautiful and pool was great. We found this to be as nice as can be, and although not one of the newest properties, well kept and comfortable. We were there April 20 - 27 and would not hesitate to come again.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012 via mobile

Pros:The grounds are beautifully maintained.
Cons: The rooms had a moldy odor and definitely need updating. There were some maintainance issues that needed repair. Without going into detail were taken care of and there were follow up calls to ensure that they were done. The only restaurant / bar at the property needs to be screened in to prevent birds from hanging out in the kitchen. Restaurant staff seemed very frustrated and overwhelmed.

Stayed April 2012

Great resort for extended vacations. Very friendly personnel, quiet rooms and accessible to shopping centers and attractions. The villas are kind out-dated and need some care. The facilities and pool are great. You have direct access to the hotel's private beach. Compared to the other Hyatt Vacation Resorts, this could be a 5 in the scale to 10. The area is great, location is superb but the rooms need some care.

Room Tip: Ask for the highest floor possible. You can get a better ocean view from the high floors.

I have always used my weeks. This place is wonderful and I have now reserved the weeks of June 2 thru 9 and July 28 thru August 4, 2012. You will love the Atlantic Ocean and beach view from my 6th floor balconies. Each apartment has two balconies. Each apartment sleeps up to 8 people. This is a great experience for nature lovers and beach goers. The beach is a stone throw away and the breeze is so pleasant. Dorado offers great restaurants, magnificent golf, great supermarket, unique location near San Juan so you can visit the Fortress, the Old San Juan and best restaurants in the Carribbean. You will get a great value for a full week of fun. If you want my personal review please contact me at jormalv@aol.com. Thanks and enjoy the review.

this is the place for you. We came as part of the Vacation Club in April 2012. This is a beautiful ocean front property with a large pool, kiddie pool, hot tub (which was nice and clean), spa, fitness center and a private beach with just enough surf to make it fun for younger kids. The hotel was only about 1/3 occupied, so there was no need to "stake out" beach chairs or pool chairs. All rooms face the ocean/pool. However, lower level rooms get a view a bit blocked by palm trees (we were on the 6th floor of 8...perfect) and rooms to the far left (as you face the hotel) get a partial view of the abandoned hotel next door. The pool and beach area has a lot of space with plenty of shade in the form of palm trees and umbrellas to complement the sun-lover areas. At night or after it rains, the palm trees come alive with bird calls and coqui.

We had a 2 bedroom suite, which sleeps 8 for two adults and two teens (16 and 17.) The suite room has a bathroom/shower, jacuzzi tub, full kitchen, living/dining room with pull-out, balcony seating 4 and bedroom with king bed. The 1 bedroom/studio has considerably less space...bed, pull-out, microwave, mini-fridge, bathroom/shower, balcony. Both rooms have access to washer/dryer. The rooms were clean, quiet and relatively well maintained. The bathrooms do show their age a little bit.

There is a small though pretty well stocked market store on the property with basics (milk, bread, soda, etc.) and pool/ocean toys. There is an outdoor bar that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with limited hours, but no restaurant on property.

You will need a car if you stay here. There are no restaurants/activities/grocery within walking distance. The hotel does provide some tour information/sign up, but it's pricey. There are several good restaurants in Dorado (The Greenhouse, Made in PR, Faccio Pizza), a SuperMax grocery, etc. We ate a few meals in town but spent most of the week exploring in the afternoons so we ate in Old San Juan and in other parts of the island. It is a bit of a drive to get to Old San Juan or other points of interest (National Rainforest, Ponce, etc.)

If you enjoy resorts buzzing with activity, this is probably not the place for you. However, if you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing place to stay as a jumping off point for your adventures in PR, this is the place!

Room Tip: 6th-8th floors to have a nice view of the beach/ocean.
