Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve ushers in a new level of luxury travel experiences. This Reserve sanctuary is the first of its kind in the Americas, with a secluded location, exclusive amenities and personalized Embajadores service. With only 115 guestrooms across 50 acres and one mile of beach, this island sanctuary is encircled by coral reefs, blue Caribbean waters and a tropical forest. An unparalleled level of guest service enhanced by the customs of Puerto Rico awaits you. The Ritz-Carlton Reserve was grandfathered to be built at the former Laurance Rockefeller estate, allowing every guestroom to rest steps from sea.

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.

Dorado is a dream!

We had a blast at Dorado!! The service was excellent and the rooms were big and comfy. There is so much to do there. Lots of fun with not a lot of stress.When the hurricane hit Puerto Rico we texted our butler that was there to make sure he was okay. He was with us the whole time and made our stay special.

We had a wonderful stay at Dorado Beach. The staff were great and the resort was beautiful. Everything seems to be in full working order. We were lucky enough to stay in a suite with a plunge pool- the room was spacious and the pool was fantastic. Dorado Beach is definitely open for business!

El Dorado Resort

By: cbear

Reviewed on: 03 Dec 2018

This is a beautiful resort on the north central shore of Puerto Rico. The facilities have all been beautifully restored following Hurricane Maria. Rooms, restaurants, spa, and all public spaces are in great shape. Housekeeping does a terrific job keeping the guest rooms in excellent shape. The staff are eager to please in any way possible. Sometimes, a special request may require a follow-up call, but be patient. They're busy catering to a lot of guests' needs.
