Sculptors Retreat/Dorado Beach
Sculptors Retreat/Dorado Beach
This place is great. I brought my young family, three children, ages 2-7, and they undoubtedly had the best vacation ever. So did my wife and I. It was a perfect combination of relaxation for my wife and I, while providing plenty of entertainment for my children. This home is very spacious and comfortable, the kitchen has everything you will need for cooking and the outdoor patio has a grill which is great for cooking and enjoying the evening outdoors. The sleeping arrangements are comfortable and spacious. We only used two of the three rooms. Bedding and linens were very comfortable and clean. The resort at the Ritz is fantastic. The pool that is available through the membership, the El Encanto Beach Club, if wonderful. The beach is so close to the pool and very convenient. The bar and restaurant have great drinks and food. The Windmill waterpark was great for the kids, and was enjoyable for the adults as well. This is a very well designed and constructed water park, with tons of great activities for the entire family. While I didn't play golf, we drove the golf cart along the nature path, in which you can see the golf course very closely, and are actually on the cart paths for some of the time, and it is a great golf course. They are Robert Trent Jones courses, and with the membership area a fantastic deal. The owner, Luis, and his wife were very gracious and met us upon arrival and provided us with a very thorough briefing on the home, the resort, the amenities and surrounding area. Luis checked in a couple of times throughout the week just to make sure everything was going well, and if they could be of any assistance. It is nice to know that they are very close in case anything would be needed. I have no complaints, we will be back undoubtedly. I have traveled quite a bit, have rented through VRBO as well as stayed at fine resorts. The home and the resort will not disappoint even the most discerning traveler. Enjoy!

Exceeded our expectations! My family and I had a wonderful time and are hoping to be back soon. The condo is even more beautiful and comfortable than we expected. We were 2 couples accompanied by grandmothers, 3 young kids and a teenager. We all found our different interest met within the property and the resort. Grandmothers played tennis on courts just steps from the Villa. Couples enjoyed various sporting activities including, bike riding, running through the beautiful extensive and scenic trails throughout the resort, swimming at both beach and pools, and even trained at the state of the art fitness center. The kids had an awesome time at the water park, the beach, and bike riding right outside the villa. All is just a walk, bike or golf cart ride away! Relaxing on the balcony with the peaceful golf course and lake side view was priceless. The kitchen is beautifully remodeled and is complete with state of the art amenities making our evening meals a pleasure. There are also several restaurants within the resort for a fine dining experience or just a well crafted drink.. Views and service are both excellent for all locations. Beds and linens were very comfortable (hotel grade) and plentiful, including beach towels and lots of extra comforters for cozy movie watching after a long day. The Villa’s location is ideal to both enjoy all the resort amenities, and at the same time maintain your privacy. Would highly recommend!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home away from home in impossibly-perfect Dorado Beach, just a short distance west of San Juan. The open design of the house and the hospitable full length covered patio make indoor-outdoor living there literally a breeze. The home is truly welcoming - authentically decorated and comfortable, with plenty of bedrooms and baths, a fully equipped kitchen, and tile floors. Best of all, it is fresh, and immaculately clean! There is a parking space as well as additional guest parking, and with the golf cart and bikes provided, getting around the Reserve was easy and fun. It is an absolute pleasure to recommend this wonderful property.

A fantastic vacation for anyone! We recently returned from a trip to Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico with our 3 young children – ages 7,5 and 1. It was the perfect mix of “home away from home” and luxury facilities. The villa was extremely comfortable for a family, with open layout and spacious rooms, and it had all the modern conveniences you could want, including an espresso machine, bikes, outdoor gas grill, dish washer and your own golf cart to explore the Ritz Carlton Reserve. The villa backed up to a golf course so it was incredibly quiet and private yet easily accessible to the Ritz pools, restaurants, exercise facility, waterpark and miles of amazing nature trails. We loved the freedom the golf cart gave us. We were able to pool hop, explore the miles of secluded beaches and nature trails as well as dine out at the fine restaurants and snorkel in the early morning or evening. During our week stay we also rented a car from Eurocar as the house had its own parking space. This enabled us to take memorable day trips to both Old San Juan and El Yunque (the rainforest). Old San Juan offers history, art, beautiful architecture and a variety of dining experiences. The rainforest offers hikes for all ages, nature and swimming in natural waterfalls. A highlight for the whole family! We did not want to come home! We all wished we could have stayed there for the summer. The owners of the villa were so welcoming and helpful. We look forward to visiting again soon!
