Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

We were only able to escape to PR for a short stay, but were lucky enough to find this condo to rent on VRBO. All of the reviews we read from previous guests were spot on. Luis met us at the condo when we arrived and was so friendly and helpful. We were even greated with fresh fruit and homemade muffins to enjoy. The condo is very large with a great patio. The girls loved the swing and hammock. The large living area and TV with Netflix even, were a huge hit for our evenings in.

The resort itself is gorgeous. Amazing grounds and everything is easily accessible with the golf cart. We did the beach, pool, surf lessons, and the water park. The pool and tennis courts by the condo was also nice to have as an option- we were always the only ones there! We didn't end up riding the bikes, but most people definitely will. Another perk to this rental- there are six there for your use. The nature trail is such a nice path- we just explored via golf cart instead of bike :)

This is definitely an excellent rental in Dorado Beach. From the time we booked the rental, Luis was offering help and recommendations for the area. It was so nice to be able to contact the owner directly when we were there with any questions. We would definitely rent again and just wish Luis owned more properties elsewhere because he was so nice to work with.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation for my wife and I and our two boys, ages 7 and 10. The villa was exactly as described. Very clean. Everything worked perfectly: TVs, bathrooms, kitchen, laundry room etc. All we did was stock the fridge with groceries. The Ritz-Carlton Reserve is truly one-of-a-kind property. Perfect for families with children of all ages. This was our first time using VRBO and Luis (villa's owner) was very helpful in making the process easy. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property.

Feb getaway

  • 5 of 5

The weather was warm and the property was beautiful. The kids had a blast at the water park and the patio was great in the morning. We found the dorado beach area beautiful with warm water and gentle waves. The spa was excellent and we splurged on night at mi casa restaurant. Luis was met us and was really helpful and friendly. Laundry machine was a real plus.

Liz

  • 5 of 5

After organizing a family trip with a lot of crazy schedules our three adult children and my soon to be daughter-in-law all met at the sculptor's retreat for a week together. Every part of the vacation was perfect. The house is beautiful, warm, immaculate and in a fantastic location. We never needed to look very far to find something to do.

Luis greeted us and was more than helpful in all respects. We cooked in most nights and the kitchen and outside grill were perfect!

The Dorado area had great restaurants and it was very easy to get to other points of interest from there.

We had one of our very best trips and will absolutely stay at Luis's beautiful home again!!!!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent trip to Dorado was wonderful. Luis met us at the Villa and explained everything we needed to know. He could not have been a more helpful host. We were extremely pleased with the Villa and we would definitely recommend it. We enjoyed our stay very much.
