Why We Love It

Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is a 50-acre private nature preserve along the north shore of Puerto Rico. It’s delightfully easy to get to via direct flight from many eastern United States locales and is just a 30-minute drive once you’ve arrived at San Juan Airport. Prior to Ritz-Carlton managing the resort, this was the private reserve of the Rockefellers and, as such, it has an old-world, secluded charm that is hard to replicate (particularly in a place that is so easily accessed by direct flight). The beautiful and meandering beachfront rooms feature amazing wave-break viewing and meditative walking paths are ideal for relaxing after-dinner strolls for the whole family.

5 Reasons to Book the Ritz Carlton Reserve at Dorado Beach

  1. The ultimate European couples getaway. This setting cannot be beat for a romantic or celebratory trip.
  2. With direct flights running in the summer from New York, it’s never been easier to access!
  3. Mallorca is continuing to grow is hospitality footprint, La Residencia is ideally located near several other noteworthy properties. Including the new Four Seasons (opening summer 2024), Son Bunyola, a Richard Branson estate that opened summer 2023, and another crowd favorite, Son Net. There is no shortage of fabulous places to explore on the island!
  4. La Residencia is ideal for couples who enjoy active itineraries. There are several hiking trails that depart from the hotel grounds. And there is no better way to cap off an adventure with a dip in the Mediterranean!
  5. The views from all areas of the hotel cannot be beat. You will quickly melt away any stresses of everyday life and adopt the Mallorcan way of life!
Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve gets a thumbs-up from the whole family!
Explore the reserve on two wheels (perhaps pulling a trailer of kiddos!) on one of the resort’s free bikes.
Inner tubes built for two on the lazy river!
