About Federico Hernandez

We are nature lovers who enjoy resort living. Before moving to Puerto Rico we lived in New York City where Carmen sang and studied in Julliard School of Music and Federico studied in Columbia University and worked for UBS Investment Bank. As of know we own and operate a billboard company in the Caribbean and love spending time with our new member, Catalina our 10month old daughter. We enjoy sports, surfing, walking in the beach, and nature seeking. We also enjoy classical music and breezy jazz nights.

Federico Hernandez purchased this villa in 2008

Why Federico Hernandez chose Dorado

Is the best of two worlds. Resort living in the beach close to the capital city. Safety meets luxury at another level of entertaining atmosphere.

What makes this villa unique

Recognized worldwide golf courses and unique beaches. Nature trails adjacent to our home. Also we never miss our weekly beach parties.

Great Birthday Escapade

  • 5 of 5

We decided to rent from Federico and Carmen after being several times guests of the Ritz Carlton Reserve Hotel. This time we came with our three kids and stay for a couple of extra days. It tuned out to be a great family trip. Kids enjoyed the water park and all of the amenities that the Resort has to offer. The villa is great and very big. Photos in VRBO do not do justice to the place. Federico and Carmen treated us like locals and showed us a couple of nice local restaurants that we were very impressed with. Don't miss out on GRAPA and ALAVARA. Tell Federico and Carmen to arrange a trip to their San Juan Restaurant called Carpaccio. Best Italian Trattoria we have been and we are from NYC. For Jazz lovers, this is the place to go on friday and saturdays. Thanks Carmen for a great time, without your help picking nannies and staff our stay would not have been so special.

A great Spa and Surf Getway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are family of 4 who loe to adventure but with Luxury. Dorado Ritz Community proved to be a great retreat for us. While I spent most days kite surfing and paddle boarding with my wife, the kids got to go to snorkeling classes and learned how to sail. Federico and Carmen where great we had the chance to go out to their restaurant Carpaccio in San Juan and it turned out to be a great Wine night. Not only did they treat us like family but arranged for us to return with their Chauffer safely back to the Villa. Thanks for a lovely time.

Should Have Been Better ... But

  • 2 of 5

Just returned from what should have been a perfect vacation with my family. Read all the reviews on VRBO and was very impressed with what I read about Frederico and his home . The house was just as described and was the perfect layout for a family of 6 adults and one baby. And as reported in all the reviews we read before we arrived he was quick to respond and provided us with a pack and play and high chair. The grounds of the resort are beauty and the restaurants were great so what went wrong??We arrived a little later than expected and never got the personalized treatment from Federico that so many raved about. Spent most of the first day lost in the resort trying to find where things were- even ran out of power once on the golf cart only to find out later that was because the outlet in the garage wasn't working properly and the cart wasn't charged. We arrived on Saturday to a home with no hot water, very poor water pressure, a clogged shower and toilet, a locked safe that wouldn't open and a broken washer dryer. The first 2 days of our vacation were filled with a series of visits from local repair people but never Frederico. Given the fact that the safe was never fixed we had to take all our personal valuables with us at all times. Federico tried to make good by throwing in an extra housekeeping service and one laundry service but we did miss out on the convenience of having an fully functional laundry service. The kitchen sink never was warmer than lukewarm and barely dribbled out of the faucet. On our 3rd night we were returning home from dinner to relieve the babysitter only to find ourselves stopped at the gate by a new guard who said we could not enter the facilities since the proper paperwork had not been filed by Federico. When you own a vacation home it is your responsibility to maintain it and assure that everything is working and that the vacationer has a stress free week. In our case that was not what happened.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry for your experience. As we informed your family, we had a health problem with our younger daughter and were not able to greet you personally on the day of arrival. We tried our best by sending our staff and a bottle of Moet Rose to greet your party and prepared youtube videos and a complete layout of the resort. Next time we will defenitely send you our tour guide and a chauffer as offered in the beginning to facilitate your first experience in Puerto Rico.(Which due to language barrier could be a cultural shock) As for the other mishaps, Puerto Rico is a tropical island and we sometimes get low pressure due to problems in the utility company but this is compensated with a 600gallon reserve tank that was turned on a soon as you notified our staff. Our home is eco friendly so our solar water heater was not steam hot in the begining, but in order to fullfill your request of steamy hot water we upgraded to a solar Plus electric hot water systems which now definitely makes the shower a great spa and specially a steam treatment. We tried our best to accomodate your party and we were always very responsive to all your wishes but we always have room to improve and learn from our previous guests. The only one that is going to be hard for us is to get you cell phone signal (Verizon) in Puerto Rico, but I will try to write to Verizon and plan their expansion into Puerto Rico :):) In the meantime Att, Sprint, T mobile, Claro and Net10 work perfectly. We wish to have you in the near future so that we can make up for your bad experience, although in numerous occasions we talked to your wife and children and they had an incredible time in our own little piece of heaven.. Please bring again your pleasant and charming attitude!!! It was a great week for us too!!
