We recently stayed at Dorado by the Ritz and we sure are glad we did! Originally, we booked at another hotel. Upon walking in we realized it was not our style. We quickly jumped on our phones and booked at the Ritz. Checking in was beyond easy and comfortable. They even greet you with some of the most delicious little popsicles. We can’t say enough great things about the staff. Every single person who works there goes above and beyond to make your stay phenomenal. The pool staff and the staff at Coa for breakfast, the pool staff, and the men that drove us in the golf carts really made the effort to connect with us and learn a little about us and gave us the opportunity to learn about them and have us tips on exploring Puerto Rico. The only thing we were bummed about was that Coa was only open one of the evenings of our trip and the other pool bar was closed the entire time. We are big foodies and love to drink so the fact we couldn’t try them was a bit upsetting. But the beautiful property and amazing staff made up for it. Thank you for the amazing vacation!
Coas restaurant is an exquisite place with wonderful breakfast. All the ingredients are of the best quality and the service is excellent. The ambience and surroundings are just perfect. My first time and definitely not the last.
My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at the Ritz Carlton Reserve at Dorado Beach. It was perfect. I had researched many properties and chose the Ritz Dorado with no regrets - except that we had to leave! We have traveled well over the years and have been to some of the world's best resorts and hotels. The Ritz Carlton Reserve did not disappoint. Property is amazingly beautiful. Rooms are designed and positioned perfectly to provide a luxurious setting that takes full advantage of the ocean view and sound while still being very private. West beach was our favorite with no more than 2 or 3 other couples there at a time. We had a private wine dinner with Chef Jose from Encanto that was phenomenal! Rest of food/restaurants were superb. The staff is genuinely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Spa Botanico is on par with the best spas we have been to in Asia. A temple-like oasis within Eden. We had the tree house massage and a couples massage. Highly recommend any treatment here and spend 2-3 hours using the facilities. Can't say enough about this resort. Want to go back! Ask about construction and closings. When we were there they were doing work at COA and the Encanto area at the same time. There were some pool closings and restaurant closings.
I've been to many of the islands in the Caribbean and top resorts and this happens to be one of the most amazing properties. The staff is A+ from the moment you arrive and throughout your stay. The grounds are beautiful and spa is a must (get a hammock massage). Food is fresh and healthy. This is the best run property in all of Caribbean. Get a room with private plunge pool - so worth it.
This was to be a trip for my husband and I after a challenging year. We wanted luxury, warmth, sand, and to be taken care of. The Ritz-Carlton at Dorado Beach did not disappoint. We had booked a 1 bedroom with a plunge pool and the upgraded us to a suite. It was AMAZING! The suite and the plunge pool were amazing. The grounds were just beautiful. Orlando our ambassador was absolutely wonderful. Really took good care of us. The food was delicious. The spa was like nothing I had ever been to. I cannot stop raving about this place. It is pricey but well worth it. No complaints!
This hotel was absolutely the most peaceful place and vacation I have ever been on. The private beaches, balcony with an ocean view, and staff made our stay perfect. Every beach day was relaxing and enjoyable due to the very attentive wait staff. They were so kind and helpful with anything we needed. The location was perfect. I have been to PR before and stayed in Old San Juan, however I enjoyed this location much more. The hotel felt secluded in the best way possible. It had everything we needed from a delicious restaurant, coffee and ice cream shop, and luxurious rooms. My friends and I had the best time possible and definitely want to stay here again.
The Hotel looks impeccable; the grounds have been restored and improved... more sculptures on the gardens, the Culinary Offer it’s been amplified!

Check the 5 star Golf Course, Clubhouse and the Shops The Dorado Beach? Just Perfect!
We have been on a number of family vacations, including to destinations across the Caribbean, and our visit to Dorado was quite simply the best trip we have ever experienced. From the breathtaking landscaping to the popsicles they served when we arrived to dining with our feet in the sand, everything was easy, beautiful, and of the highest quality. But all of these amenities are to be expected at a place like Dorado. It was the above-and-beyond service from our family’s resort ambassador, Big John, that made this trip the unforgettable experience that it was. He was constantly available, proactively offering his knowledge and tips, as well as answering any and all questions we could throw his way. By the last night of the vacation (as we were enjoying pizza that he had gone out of his way to pick up and delivered to our room!) we considered him a family friend, and we will be returning to this resort just to catch up with Big John. We can’t recommend the Dorado resort highly enough — it will make for a magical stay!
The moment we arrived to the time we depart... the entire trip was the most memorable travel experience. The property and the room took my breath away. From interior design to landscaping were elegant and beautiful. The people was genuine and non-scripted interaction throughout. The embajardors assigned to us were helpful and attentive yet provided us with sense of privacy. The restaurants were great, provided ample varieties of selections. We considered our self foodies and we found that we are very satisfied with the quality and flavor in every restaurants we ate. The service in the restaurants could use attention in details and especially beneficial for more service staffs. May be we were a bit picky but if you pay premium for food we are expecting more from the service standpoint. The food quality here was unbelievable from fresh wasabi and fish in Positivo, selection of seafood from Japan at omakase bar, high quality beef in Coa, as well as amazing chef special Puerto Rican dinner in Encanto. We love the idea of Sunday fresh market in la cocina cafe and we love chef Sutin ceviche bar. We discovered that they have the market by accident, I think you should do a better job promote activities you have within your hotel. Our favorite restaurants were Positivo and Coa. Chef Taira provided one of the most delicious omakase dining. We also ate at Coa two nights in a roll. The lobster pasta was delicious and the beefs were amazing and full of flavor from wood fire grill. On the second night we took our server recommendation of Wagyu tasting. Chef Sutin came to our table to present the dish with sauces and different cuts of wagyu. That was one of the most memorable dining experience we had in Coa. We also recommend to ask Encanto for special Puerto Rican dinner. The chef was really accommodating and the food were delicious. Dorado must be the one that has most amazing hotel's food we have ever been to. Looking forward to come back to your property again.
Absolutely breathtaking!!!! Every inch of the property is beyond beautiful, the trees, flowers, plants and the sound of the coqui! Our room had a balcony with beach/ocean view, it was as amazing! Views views views! Every member of the staff was so accommodating and they expressed the best hospitality to me and my family. The spa is a must, every step around the premises was so beautifully kept, and I had the best treetop massage with Janet, she is wonderful! We had dinner at Melao twice during our vacation, the food and staff was so great, we just had to come back. Shout out to Joel and Caroline, thank you for the great service and food recommendations. An absolute must is the lobster mofongo!!! A very BIG Thank you to Kristina Diaz with Elemento photography, we had the most fun photo session with her. She captured so many beautiful memories for us. And I am forever grateful to her!!! The photos and video, were amazing!!!!! Lastly, The water mill park was awesome, very family friendly and gorgeous! Thank you Puerto Rico, Ritz Carlton Reserve, for a wonderful experience, birthday and a vacation, my family and I will Never Forget!!!
