Stunning resort. Must see. Great service. 1100 acre property with golf. One of the best spas in the world bar none. Terrific beach. Well appointed sizable rooms with beach views and plunge pool. You can bike or run thru an 11 mile loop in the natural reserve adjoining the gold course on the beach. Each room has a butler (embajador) that takes care of everything. 2 pools both on the beach. One is for families and kids and it is amazingly great. The other pool for adults is spectacular with great views and seating both in the beach and around the pool. Hammocks available and cabanas. The white sandy beach is quiet and kids can swim there easily with no wave. The Ritz Carlton Reserve is a new highest hotel category for the Ritz. It is unique, smaller and designed to rival the best vacation properties in the world. We were here on a couple's vacation without our kids and will return here for sure with the kids next time. It is great for both. Had a wonderful time. One of best resorts we have ever been to.

Beautiful resort! I live in the community and love driving my golf cart around there! The landscaping is so gorgeous. The hotel has a beach bar called Positivo which I recommend. There is also mi casa by Jose Andres & u can read my review on that matter! The gift shop is quite pricey. Coverups can be in the thousand dollar range. The clothes are cute as hell tho! I've always stayed in a room w a pool. There is an infinity pool right off ur patio & views of the ocean. The main pool, near reception, is amazing! So pretty! They have the waves blocked off by rocks so the beach has a nice calm ocean pool and the water feels incredible. The shuttle can take u up to Barlovento, a beach bar/lunch spot where all the waterspouts happen. Kitesurfing, paddle board, yoga... There is also another pool/restaurant/beach right next to the hotel. It is called encanto. This is mostly used by the community members but guests are welcome! 6 golf courses & a waterpark for the kiddies (plantation village).
I live here but have thoroughly enjoyed my stays at the ritz in dorado

First to Review

Ritz-Carlton invested $342 million to bring this 1958 property, built by Laurance S. Rockefeller, back to its former glory for its December 2012 reopening. Many of the resort’s beachfront bungalows, decorated in cream-colored fabrics with soothing sand-colored walls, come with private plunge pools. Foodies love Mi Casa, a Puerto Rican–inspired restaurant that marks chef José Andrés’s first foray outside of the United States. Once the hotel of choice for luminaries including JFK, Elizabeth Taylor, and Ava Gardner, Dorado Beach is again attracting big names—football fans might spot New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft in the five-acre Spa Botánico.
