Top to bottom great trip. Service all over was incredible. We used the pool, beach, every restaurant, spa, golf course and fitness center. All exceptional. Positivo was our favorite spot to dine for lunch and dinner. The sushi was awesome at night! Service was excellent, great drink menu. The pool is such a great, relaxing spot. We probably preferred the...

The butlers that were assigned to us (Jimmy, Orlando) were amazing and attended to our every need. The most serene place to celebrate our anniversary. We went into Old San Juan one...

I recently stayed with my daughter for a week of rest and relaxation and the Ritz Carlton Reserve did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived and were warmly greeted by the staff we were transported to luxury. Our room with a plunge pool was lovely and a private location. The service by the beach and pool staff was excellent,...

I definitely recommend this hotel. It was really great staying here and I would love to come again. The food was superb, the service was great and the rooms were immaculate. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Puerto Rico but the reserve.

We had looked forward to our spring break vacation for five months, and even with expectations running very high, this hotel did not disappoint! Upon arrival, we were greeted by a team who tended to everything, making check-in (and then the entire week) as easy and smooth as could be. Our Embajador Josuee was lovely and helpful in EVERY way!...

An incredibly lovely place. The room was spectacular, and overlooked the ocean. The service was excellent. It was pricey, but very special. Take advantage of the cheaper bar down by the water sports, and the coffee/ snack shop near the white pool. Not quite as much sticker shock there .

Our room was on the second floor. As you entered the 'room' there was a dining room table, living room overlooking the ocean a huge balcony with table...

Beautiful Hotel and in general was an excellent week. The check in was excellent with a warm welcome. The ambassador assigned to our room initially was great when we checked in. However, there was little to no follow-up after initial interaction. We had also called in advance for dinner reservations with no return call. Our room was beautiful but there...

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
