Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve offers an array of amenities and facilities including three spectacular 18-hole golf courses, The Beach Club featuring adult and family pools, the historic Rockefeller Nature Trail – an open-air sanctuary from land to sea, and restorative treatments at the Spa Botanico.

Just steps away from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by acres of tropical forest, all accommodations feature distinctive touches and enhanced features.

Each private home boasts pristine ocean views and expansive open-air living spaces to accommodate families and friends who gather to immerse themselves in nature’s astonishing backdrop.

Puerto Rico’s heritage is a cross-section of Spanish, Caribbean and American, and nowhere is that more evident than in the cuisine. Restaurants at this Dorado Beach resort reflect that diversity with food that brings together the best of those cultures with the breathtaking beauty of Dorado Beach.
