The property itself is beautiful - pools, spa, beach. The service was terrible. Everything we asked for either took forever or was wrong. Guest night they said they’d be back with extra pillows, never arrived. Room service took almost 2 hours. Food served incorrectly or missing over and over. Given how much we paid (15k) we were pretty disappointed. Wouldn’t return.

Fantastic resort! Every staff I meet are friendly and helpful. Butler service is amazing, usually reply my texts within minutes.

The hotel is beautiful. Its located on a preserve and the property is very well maintained. I stayed for a week in the second floor suite on East Beach. Always request East unless you have children with you. West is more suited for families. All 3 restaurants on property are delicious, however the menus are limited. The pool & beach staff need some training as some days it would take 10-15 mins for anyone to assist me, and it was not busy at all. Room service also needs some work as it claims to be 24hrs and I called several times with no response just after midnight. Same with the front desk Realistically this is a 4 star resort not 5. The pricing reflects that of a 5 star but the service does not meet expectations of other 5 star resorts I have visited. Worth staying at but spend your money else where for food/service as there are plenty of options for better overall value and half the price.

We had an excellent stay during our end of summer vacation at Dorado Beach Resort. The resort grounds are truly amazing. You are right on a beautiful beach with adjacent golf course. There are trails available for cycling and walking that include looking at artwork that's presented outdoors. There is also a small water park that is associated with the resort and was open on the weekend. Our girla loved the water park! The food available at the resort restaurants was amazing though a bit pricey. I had a chance to enjoy the spa, which was also beautiful and relaxing. We will definitely return to Dorado Beach.

Awesome facility Tons of activities for children. Very helpful staff

The only thing I did not like was the choice of food and prices .

Beautiful place, great staff, service and food. Be prepared to spend some money. We walked every day around the large property. Played golf, went to the gym and hung out at the beach.

Arriving at the resort we were transported into a world away from the ordinary. The impeccable grounds were filled with Palm trees and exotic flowers. We recommend bicycling around the lush landscape into a rainforest that is part of the resort. Our room was magnificent with a bathtub big enough for two and an inside and outside shower. The bed was extremely comfortable and the view of the ocean amazing. All our needs we're met by the friendly and attentive staff. A massage in the treehouse at the tranquil spa is highly recommended . Four excellent restaurants are on the resort with delicious fare. Our trip was an amazing escape.
