We stayed at the Sculptor's Retreat Villa after Thanksgiving this year and couldn't have been happier! As traveling with kids goes, it can feel like more work than play- but this vacation actually felt like a vacation. And with a 6 yr old, 4 yr. old, and 6 months old, that is high praise! The house was spacious, well maintained and tastefully decorated. The view and grounds were gorgeous, and the kids had a ball running around the huge back lawn, finding coconuts, and swinging in the hammocks. This villa is the last unit on the block, so you have an unobstructed view and it felt very private. Luis was a very gracious and attentive host. He came through in a pinch when our crib rental fell through and set one up for us, checked on us throughout the trip, and has set up a beautiful and thoughtfully equipped home. Once you enter the Ritz Reserve gates you truly wouldn't need to leave! I was a little nervous about how far apart everything was and the logistics of getting around the reserve, but the golf cart made it so easy and the kids loved it. All of the pools, restaurants and activities are very quick trips away and are all incredible. We truly felt like we were in paradise all week, and I can't express how breathtakingly beautiful and special everything was. We will be back!
The property was just what our family of 7 needed. Luis, the owner, greeted us when we arrived and gave us a complete tour of the home. We were able to use towels and toiletries that were in the home, which helped a lot. You don't realize how much you appreciate using things like salt and pepper and laundry detergent until you don't have it. I would stay here again, we loved everything.
The home was beautiful and a great location for a family of 6 with ages from 12 -18. I could easily live on the back porch with the hanging chairs and hammock. The views are beautiful and peaceful. We took advantage of the bicycles that came with the house and there were enough for all of us to bike together. There are so many things to do on the reserve you really don't need to leave. We took morning hikes before going to the beach or Watermill each day. We were even lucky enough to come upon gardeners cutting the coconuts from the trees one day. They chopped off the top off two and offered us fresh coconut one morning! We snorkeled in different areas pointed out to us by the Ambassador of the Sea program. Our teens took kite surfing lessons at the Goodwinds beach area. We loved using the golf cart to go to the pool areas or wonderful Positivo Restaurant at night. It was awesome to eat out doors with our feet in the sand and the food was amazing. We took one day trip 15 minutes away to a new reserve where they rescued leather back baby turtles and released them at sunset, Amazing! Again the Ambassadors program told us about it. We would definitely stay at this home again. It gave the whole family plenty of room to spread out and was great to come back to every day. The bedrooms were large and clean. Luis was there to great us when we arrived and answered all of our questions. Thank you for a wonderful vacation and many wonderful memories.
Our family arrived to a beautiful resort and villa. Luis, the owner, greeted us and was very helpful in pointing out all the amenities of his villa. The villa was super clean, spacious and comfortable and decorated very nicely, full of great art! The large covered outdoor space had amazing views and was an area were many meals were eaten. Dorado Beach Resort is an amazing property full of activities for everyone. Having the golf cart was a lot of fun, as well as, a convenient way to move around the property. Luis had a binder full of restaurant suggestions within the resort as well as in the town of Dorado. Our family truly had relaxing and an amazing time. We will definitely be back!!!
I have been using VRBO for over 15 years and have not encountered a more hospitable owner. Luis met us at the property to give us a lay of the land, which was really helpful. The property is very comfortable and has an outstanding covered outdoor space with a comfortable sitting area, a great hammock, a dining table, and a grille. While utilizing this space, you can hear waves crashing in the distance. What else do you need? We also had use of a golf cart along with bikes for our entire family. The property is perfectly located. A short bike or golf cart ride to the Encanto Beach Club. The best thing about the Dorado Beach Club is that there is something for everyone. It will entertain all ages. Golf, tennis, surfing, kiteboarding, phenomenal gym, beautiful beaches, fun water park. All right out the door.
This property is a total delight. It is beautifully decorated with every amenity one could ask for and is in excellent condition. The pictures and reviews are all amazingly accurate. We especially love the outdoor covered terrace with full dining, hammocks, chair swings and couches and tables. We practically lived out there and enjoyed the beautiful view. The unit was well supplied, including provisions and all appliances are in excellent working order. Most of all, the owner Luis is extraordinary! He was immediately responsive to every request, even when the internet went down through no fault of his in area-wide failure. The unit comes with bicycles, a kayak, paddle board, nearly new gas grill snorkling gear and more. Beds are in great shape and the original art is very attractive. The nearby tennis court is in great shape, the pool and hot tub too. This was our second trip to the Ritz Carlton resort and met every possible expectation. (And Luis' Mom makes a dynamite muffin!)
