True luxury in Puerto Rico and impressive, although very expensive and perhaps not worth the full price of admission. About 40 minutes by car for San Juan, depending on traffic. Rooms are excellent, indoor/outdoor showers cool (could not get my indoor one to work, but 'ambassador' is only a call away), ocean view. Great bed. Excellent wifi. Only complaints the mosquitos and how expensive everything is, but goes with the territory. Not so sure about the resort fee on top, or the hold on card. Given the price, that is a bit cheap...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Rockefeller, who in the 1950s transformed the lush landscape into one of Puerto Rico’s most exclusive luxury resorts. With its serene coastline, private residences, spa sanctuary, golf courses and a harmonious sense of place that blends masterfully into the natural surroundings, Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve invites guests to arrive spellbound – and depart speechless. ... more less
