Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • AAA 4-Diamond family-friendly resort with three golf courses, treehouse spa and private beach 
  • Hollywood’s holiday: Favorite getaway of international starlets and socialites in the 1960s
  • All rooms are oceanfront 
  • No check-in required: Private ambassadors whisk guests directly to rooms

Overview

Over the course of one century, Dorado Beach transformed from a citrus and coconut plantation into the “it” destination for JFK and Elizabeth Taylor, and finally, after a $342 million renovation, a AAA 4-Diamond Ritz-Carlton property.

Guests do not check-in with reception, instead an ambassador leads the way to rooms, suites and villas constructed of coral stone. Each room has direct access to the hotel’s private beach; suites offer rooftop balconies or private plunge pools. All accommodations feature supersize flat-screens, indoor/outdoor bathrooms, soaking tubs and Wi-Fi. The 1920s plantation home, Su Casa, sits at the center of the complex and can be rented as a five-bedroom villa.

The 1,400-acre property is home to adult and family oceanfront pools, a kids’ aquatic playground, three golf courses, tennis courts and a 5-acre spa with open-air treehouse treatment platforms. Once part of Laurance Rockefeller’s estate, the resort’s 11-mile nature trail winds through an eco-preserve named for the former owner.

Featuring several dining options, the hotel’s premier restaurant is Mi Casa, where Chef José Andrés’ menu pays homage to his native Spain and local delicacies.
