Mr. Rockefeller's legacy was preserved, and still this magnificent property, incredible surroundings and landscape overwhelms you. The lobby is a state of the art design... like a sacred sanctuary, a temple from a Hollywood movie nested by a scenery that speaks of tropical beauty...yet so silent. The secluded pristine beach is the main course for many....for some others is Golf...but most definitely...you feel you have arrived to paradise.
The rooms are very spacious and overlook the ocean, decorated with simple, yet elegant tropical design. Comfortable Balconies invite you to enjoy the pleasures of this retreat as the wind and the sea hit the coral reefs.
The spa is one of the most incredible spas I have visited. Designed to awaken your senses, the lobby warms you with a mixture of aromas from dry flowers, spices, and herbs hanging from the ceiling. A private party was held, so some of the areas were "unavailable". It is expensive, but worth the visit. The little store needs some attendance and additional inventory.
Restaurants offer limited menu, but there is a variety of choices along the property; from asian, spanish, caribbean to international. Prices are as expected. The main restaurant, Mi Casa from José Andrés has a very nice lounge and bar area. Ambiance is inviting, bar-tending and service is great. We were not as impressed by the food as we had expected. Presentation, flavors and options were as good as any other nice restaurant in the island...not as one you would expect from an international acclaimed chef like José Andrés.
Our experience for Room Service and concierge was not very true for such a luxury Hotel. Please take note on a very important promise of world class service, not only for important visitors from all over the world, but also for every returning fan from the island.
Welcome Ritz Carlton to Dorado! Paradise is in your hands.....
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Somewhere between idyllic and perfection sits a Puerto Rico resort of such intimate luxury and rare character, it calls to those who believe every journey should be a voyage of discovery. Once a 1,400-acre sugar plantation owned by the Livingston family, Dorado Beach caught the eye of conservationist visionary Laurance S. Rockefeller, who in the 1950s transformed the lush landscape into one of Puerto Rico’s most exclusive luxury resorts. With its serene coastline, private residences, spa sanctuary, golf courses and a harmonious sense of place that blends masterfully into the natural surroundings, Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve invites guests to arrive spellbound – and depart speechless. ... more less
