Dorado Beach Ritz Carlton

Dorado Beach Ritz Carlton Reserve is a tranquil oasis on the island of Puerto Rico. Its secluded location, lush greenery, and individualized Embajador service differentiate it from other resorts on the island.


This Caribbean resort was once a grapefruit and coconut plantation that developed into a luxury resort in 1958 and attracted jet-setting travelers. Amelia Earhart, Elizabeth Taylor, and John F. Kennedy were regular guests of the property. However, in 2012, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company rebuilt the property.

Following its original developer, Laurance S. Rockefeller, they devised a sustainable architecture that could seamlessly integrate with nature. Hence, shortly after its inauguration, the resort regained its former glory.

But Hurricane Maria damaged the resort, and had to close down for renovation purposes. However, in 2018, it was reborn with a new spirit. Today, Dorado Beach, a Ritz Carlton Reserve, proudly presents its 50-acre lush green land with nature trails, pristine beaches, golf courses, and luxury residences.

Style and Design

The hotel is simultaneously modern and historic as it draws inspiration from the previous developer, Laurance S. Rockefeller's original design and eco-friendly policy. As a result, the building smoothly merges with its surroundings without affecting the natural environment.

A breathtaking landscape awaits you at the resort. You'll find yourself amid a tropical rainforest with palms, coconut trees, and ponds. Even the open-air lobby built with beige-colored stones appears to be an extended part of this vegetation. The hotel's design smoothly transitions from inside to outside and blurs the difference between the two.


This beachfront property resides in Dorado, on the northern coast of Puerto Rico. It is a 45-minute drive from San Juan and around a 30 to 35-minute drive from Luis Munoz Marin International Airport. Several cafes, restaurants, shops, and supermarkets are nearby. Moreover, Casa Del Rey Museum and Cerro Gordo National Park are just 8 to 10 minutes by car.

Rooms and Suites

114 guest rooms and suites in small double-story buildings are located either in West or East Beach. These buildings are linked with each other via tree-lined pathways. All rooms are exquisitely designed with modern furniture and up-to-date facilities. They have high ceilings, marble floors, and huge glass windows that give access to large terraces. On the terraces, you can find comfortable daybeds, loveseats, and small dining tables.

All guest rooms at Dorado Beach Ritz Carlton are very spacious. Their basic rooms on the upper floor are around 950 square feet. However, one-bedroom suites are on the ground floor. They are more than 1,200 square feet in size and feature a vast living room, dining room, kitchenette, and private outdoor pool.

These rooms have comfy king-size beds, armchairs with ottomans, desks, and large closets. Other thoughtful touches include mini-bars with soft drinks, snacks, and alcoholic drinks. Moreover, Nespresso machines with kettles are also available. In addition, high-tech amenities include free Wi-Fi, large-screen TVs, iPod docks, and Bose speakers.

Their marble bathrooms are also very spacious. They feature twin basins, large freestanding soaking tubs, and indoor and outdoor showers. Moreover, Spa Botánico bath products, straightening irons, and hair dryers are also available.

Dorado Beach Ritz Carlton raises the luxury level with its extra sumptuous Residences and Villas, available in two to five bedrooms. These private residences offer lovely ocean views and vast open-air areas to enjoy with families. Their five-bedroom, 8,000 square feet Villa Su Casa is a paradigm of luxury.
