Very nice beach!

We were staying at the Dorado Beach East resort, and enjoyed visiting this beach several times. It is very nice with calm waters due to the breakers (large rocks). The water was... read more

We were looking at some properties in the area and our realtor gave us some day passes for Dorado beach club. It is located on the grounds of the Ritz- Carlton Reserve. We spent the whole day there and really enjoyed it. It is as close to paradise as you can get. There are three golf courses, several restaurants, pools... More

We love Dorado Beach year round. The Resort is paradise, but even the "local beach" technically known as Balneario Manuel Morales has a lot to offer. Parking is about $3.50 but if you get there early you can park streetside for free. Walk to the right from the parking lot and you can find a calm, clean cove great for... More

Quiet. Nice sand and clear water. Private area in front of Hyatt where we stayed. Snorkeling in the same bay. We were with 4 boys 13-15 who had a blast.

If you want to enjoy a nice quiet beach you should go to Dorado Beach. It is clean , beautiful water and the sea is topically calm. Also it is very safe as the Ritz-Carlton is located there . If you are not staying at the ritz you obviously can't use their property but beaches are public in Puerto Rico... More

Spent a full day at the Dirado beach with family and friends and everyone loved it. Next time we travel to Puerto Rico we will difenetly go there again. It was clean, lot of shade (for those not wanting to tan) and nearby establishments for food and drinks!

We were staying at the Dorado Beach East resort, and enjoyed visiting this beach several times. It is very nice with calm waters due to the breakers (large rocks). The water was pretty clear, but not like some water in the carribean. I think it has to do with some of the large wave breaking over the rocks, stirring up... More

The beach was so clean and the water was perfect. The night time snorkeling was really wonderful. Wish the coral reef was healthier but it appears the folks at the Cousteau center are working on it.

Is lovely and really calm. Bring your bbq and have a family day. There are security everywhere. The restrooms are really dirty, so I recommend, if you have to use them, find another.
