BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 out of 5
We found our piece of Paradise at the Sculptor's Retreat Dorado Beach. The owner was so kind and helpful. The villa was perfectly appointed to meet the needs of our family of 7, including 3 children. Two of our favorite times of the day was enjoying morning coffee and evening sunsets on the beautiful back terrace. The golf cart provided a fun and easy way to travel the property along with the bikes. The beauty of Dorado Beach can not be truly appreciated in pictures….we constantly stumbled upon pockets of perfection all over the property. The food at all of the restaurants was fantastic but pricey. We ate breakfast in the villa every morning, lunch out every day, and then grilled out several nights in the villa. We found a mini Whole Foods called La Hacienda just a few minutes down the road from the villa that had fabulous pre-marinated meats. Favorites: Watermill Water Park, Livingston Park, snorkeling at beach club, playing tennis at villa court, dinner at Zafra, and really every minute we were there. We will be back….soon than later I hope!!

PERFECT STAY

  • 5 out of 5
I rented Luis's Villa on the Ritz Reserve property for four nights in mid-June. We were a party of 6 (three couples all around 30 years old and recently married). The villa was perfect. The location is on the property of the Ritz, but not in the actual hotel, and about half the price! It also allowed for all three couples to be in one villa with our own bedrooms, own bathrooms, common kitchen/living area for hanging out, and awesome private porch with great views (not of the ocean but still great). The grounds of the Ritz are unbelievable. The property is massive with multiple amenities - golf, at least 5 places to eat/drink, private beaches, water sports, work out facility, and miles and miles of trails to hike/bike.

The only negative on the property is the expensive food and drink at the hotel pools and restaurants, but that's no different than any resort. Plus, having our own villa with a kitchen and patio allowed us to bring a lot of our own food/drink when hanging out there.

Luis was also great to work with - very easy, and he met us with his family as we arrived to show us around. I would recommend Luis's villa to anyone looking to make a trip to Puerto Rico, and the Ritz Reserve has unbelievable grounds for the perfect vacation for couples, families, friends, etc.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 out of 5
Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner for a quick tour of the villa. We had 8 in our party and we all had plenty of room. Very clean and large kitchen and living area to hang out. The patio was huge and opened to the golf course. Beautiful view. I recommend getting a 2nd golf cart if you have more than 4 in your party. The property is huge and the carts made it fun and convenient to get around. The owner Luis was available and very helpful when planning the trip. The resort is amazing. The villa is the best of both worlds. If you want a night in, the villa is relaxing and if you want to go out the resort has some restaurants to visit. We cant wait to go back.

GREAT FAMILY TIME FOR ALL

  • 5 out of 5
What a terrific experience! Luis an Mayleen not only own a lovely home that is ready for a great vacation, but they were extremely welcoming and accomodating. The place is lovely and was absolutely spotless when we arrived.
Upon our arrival on a Sunday afternoon with our two kids (5 yrs and 4 months), they made sure we were all settled in, gave us a quick tour of the house with its impressive sculptures, paintings and local prints and showed us all the "basics" about having a great time in the Dorado area. I am not sure if my wife was more excited about the idea of the world class spa at the Ritz Carlton Reserve and multiple pools or if my five year old was beyond happy at the prospect of "driving" (with my help) the golf cart to the river pool for the afternoon. In fact, for the first three days, we did not even leave the property as there is so much to do on site.
We immediately settled in for what was one of the bext 5 days we could imagine. The house provides all the comfort and "goodies" we needed for relaxing mornings on the porch having breakfast or happy hour with a nice glass of wine as we grilled something at our own pace and watched the afternoon turn into evening. While we ate in a few times, the hotel restaurants and those in Dorado were excellent and provided plenty of options for all of us- from seafood to vegetarian to kids food. We particularly liked Encanto (a short golf cart drive away) in the evening with its setting on the beach.
Our day where full of walks, playing in the ocean and pool, tennis (court is 100 yds away) and hitting golf balls for fun. While we went to see all the surfers, kite and windsurfers, paddlers and kayakers, we are probably a few years away from getting our little ones going. Carla and Phil at the Barlovento water sports area are fantastic and ready to get anyone in the water for a fun day!
Overall, having our own "home" in the world class Dorado resort for 5 days was exactly what we were looking for to get away from the cold and disconnect as a family.
This morning, on a 45 degree rainy morning, my five year said, "when can we go back to Dorado? it never rains there and i love it!". That pretty much sums it up.
We higly recommend this house and are already making plans with another couple to go back again.

SIMPLY SPECTACULAR

  • 5 out of 5
The home is comfortable, elegant and very roomy. The view is breathtaking and the host a pleasure to work with. You can go anywhere in the enormous 400+ acre property on the provided golf carts. A perfect place to have a family party, which we did.
