Situated on three miles of Caribbean coastline and 1,400 acres, Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve includes 100 guestrooms and 14 one-bedroom suites, all directly on the beach, plus Su Casa, the original plantation hacienda, which has been renovated back to its original 1920s style to serve as a four-bedroom beachfront VIP villa.
Dorado Beach also features a five-acre 'botanical' spa; a restaurant by award winning chef José Andrés; and an eco-educational Ambassadors of the Environment program by Jean-Michel Cousteau.
The resort boasts, "unspoiled natural beauty, heritage and world-class offerings," according to Alejandro Helbling, general manager of Dorado Beach.
