The Ritz reserve at Dorado Beach really is amazing. Everything is first rate. The pool, the beach, the spa, the restaurants, the staff, the rooms are all five star. On the property, you really feel like you are in your own paradise. If you are looking for a special getaway, this is definitely the place to go.

Best resort I've ever visited

This place is over the top. The service is exceptional. The restaurants are amazing. The spa is the best I've ever visited. There's not a detail the Ritz didn't think about. Loved the outdoor showers in rooms, the hammocks on the beach, the vibe in Positivo, the bikes provided. And the butlers (ambajadors) are there before you ever need them. This is a five star plus property

One of the best resorts we've ever stayed at! Exceptional service from the moment we walked in! The grounds are so beautiful. Bikes come with the room…so it was a great way to see the entire place. Right on the water. Amazing food! Definitely request a room with your own pool. The beds were awesome. We will definitely be back!

A gorgeous resort with many amenities for the entire family. The three restaurants served excellent food. The beach was beautiful. We watched peacefully as the waves of the Atlantic crashed continuously into the rock wall barrier. Heaven.

Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach

By: Kelly B

Reviewed on: 05 Jul 2017

Our stay this time was much better than our previous visit. The one negative during our stay is they were doing construction (refinishing all the decking) on the main lobby / pool entrance area - so it was closed and you had to walk along the perimeter of the building each day instead. It was a little frustrating and inconvenient. Other than that our stay was very nice.
