My twin sister and I recently spent our birthday at this resort. I had read many reviews, but nothing I can say will adequately capture my experience. You must go and experience paradise for yourself. About 2 weeks before we were scheduled to arrive, we received a call from Ashley to see if there was anything she can do to... More

Traveled to Dorado with my wife for an extended weekend in August and was shocked and amazed to find such a property in the Caribbean, let alone Puerto Rico. The property is stunning, the best we have ever experiences, and the service, although not Asia it came pretty close to perfection. The staff is readily available but what really stood... More

This is one of my favorite hotel. The hotel was previously owned by Hyatt and then Ritz bought it. This is very expensive resort and to stay here you need pretty good bank balance. We stayed here for 3 nights and I was upgraded to a suite and free breakfast in the morning. My kids loved their multi layered pool.... More

I'm not sure if I can adequately put into words the experience we had at Dorado Beach. The experience was perfection. There was a big name celebrity staying at the hotel while we were there, who I will not name, and the staff treated us just as good if not better than him. One night Chef Joel at Encanto even...

We adore this property. It is gorgeous and yes, very pricey. We got the King Plunge Suite and it was so worth it. Angie was our private concierge, and showed us around the entire property by golf cart. She took us to MI CASA BY JOSÉ ANDRÉS where dinner consisted of everything Puerto Rican by chef. It was called the... More

This property is exceptionally beautiful, elegant and luxurious. I can't say anything more about its virtues than other reviewers already have, so all I'm going to add are a couple of helpful comments and one critique. Make sure you visit the spa. It's to die for.
