I spent the past long Columbus weekend with my family (kids 7 and 9) and another family with kids 9 and 10. We also met a few other great families. We had been to Dorado over President's weekend so the kids were so excited to come back. I was a bit anxious to see how the property matured since it first opened. No other word than "wow!" The hotel looked amazing as all the landscaping was plush and grown. The service was crisp, polished, not too obtrusive and what beachfront luxury should be like. My wife (who has traveled the world and is a big spa person) said the spa and massage were the best she has ever experienced. Our biggest fights were whether we would eat at Encanto, Positivo, Mi Casa or barlovento so we went to them all and loved them all. The kids had Foosball tournaments in the Mi Casa lounge with their friends and other families while we savored the luxury called Jose Andres' food and drink. Breakfast on the terrace was breathtaking as the kids made us get the recipes for the waffles and pancakes (it says made with olive oil and amazing). But what really did it for me was the smiles on all of our kids faces as they hustled between surf and windsurf lessons, night swimming at the pools, the unbelievable waterpark and the private zumba class that was organized for them. My friend noted that he would normally travel 15-20 hours to experience what he did at Dorado Beach and he is right. Thank you Dorado Beach - for me and my kids!
