Incredible property and amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Alma and her team were such wonderful hosts. They made us feel at home in our beautiful Villa and provided additional touches that made such a difference, such as stocking the kitchen with our favorite food and coordinating fun activities. They were available as needed and their local knowledge helped to ensure our vacation wishes were met. I highly recommend the property and service. You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic Vacation with easily 6 stars

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this gorgeous well appointed villa on the Ritz property. It was very spacious with a huge family room, 3 bedrooms and private enclosed deck (easily 3,500 sqr ft.)

The host Alex is a gem - makes you feel so at home. We enjoyed zipping around within the massive preserve on our golf cart, spending long afternoons at Encanto and going to Old San Juan.

I could not have dreamed of a more wonderful vacation. Thank you Alex and Alma (maker of dream vacations par excellence and business owner)

Review Continued - Part 2

  • 2 of 5

And that’s the overall theme here. The house is totally fine. The beds are fine, the place is generally clean. But, it is in no way modernized, luxurious or resort feeling. The bathroom fixtures are chipped and 20+ years old. There is rust behind the bidet on the drains. Plumbing lines are exposed and not properly anchored. As I mentioned, the in-room AC units are so arcane that the remotes have faded and they’re virtually impossible to use (and no, I’m not tech challenged). The tile in the bathrooms are reminiscent of a hospital. The lighting is so poor that I can’t imagine people can really entertain downstairs (in the dark). And, both lights in the master vanity were burned out (and at least four other bulbs) and not replaced for first 48 hours of our visit.

They have modernized the countertops in the kitchen and downstairs bathroom as well as the master shower – all of which are nice. The rest of the house desperately needs upgrades.

I will say that the on-the-ground guy, Alex, was fantastic. He was nice upon arrival and responsive to us foolishly locking ourselves out the first night.

Suggestions: invest if you want the place to be nice. You know exactly what I’m speaking of. Circa 1990 builders-grade doors, fixtures, toilet seats, plumbing and HVAC were never meant to last this long. I understand it’s probably hard to rationalize if you’re usually renting the place out, but either step it up for fully disclose the short comings. It’s simply not luxurious by any reasonable standard and claiming it to be is simply not fair and incorrect.

The other point w/the third party management is that they pretend to be a “travel booking service” when you actually expect them to take responsibility for fixing a situation. It’s worth noting that Alma’s company facilitates the contract, takes payment and is the sole point of contact throughout the entire process. However, when I referred to her as a property manager when seeking a partial refund for the stream of problems and inconveniences, she said that they were not actually a property management company. She went on to use the classic “good cop/bad cop” routine and said that she would advocate on our behalf for a partial refund from the owner. Alas, not surprisingly, the owner’s proposed refund was absurd. I found the whole process grossly misrepresentative and unprofessional and would not consider renting through Alma again.I

Owner's Response: This above review was written for VILLA FELICIA in the Fairways community and not the villa listed here- VILLA LEGENDS in the Dorado Beach East community. With over 400 four and five star reviews on both our Villas and our unique guest services, it’s a pity (though it appears to have happened) that a guest had an unfavorable overall experience. We appreciated hearing that the Property Manager, Alex, was so helpful and that the house was FINE! In terms of the specific concerns, we have spoken with the owner and the AC units will be replaced ASAP. They were 100% functional during the guest stay- (Alex made sure of that) but we are aware of their age and it is time to replace them. The bulbs that burned out were unfortunately out of stock and those have now been stocked up to avoid future inconvenience. We have countless instances where guests have praised our hands-on service – from the booking phase all the way to post vacation follow-ups. When the guest asked for a 50% refund on the stay, I approached the owner who offered a more modest amount, as a courtesy for the older AC units. In this case it seems that things neither “came together” nor “clicked” as they always do – resulting in this guest’s unfortunate reaction. We continuously strive to improve our services to our guests, outstripping the competition – and this occurrence gives us the opportunity to gain insight and further grow our increasing list of very happy, and well served, vacationers.

Very nice property

  • 4 of 5

Overall we were very happy with the unit. Very spacious. Big bedrooms. Updated kitchen though we mostly used only at breakfast. The ritz reserve is an amazing property. We all had a great time riding around in the golf cart. Did not get the memberShip and was fine - still managed to go to beach club and use the facilities when eating lunch there. Air conditioners somewhat noisy but we turned them off at night and used ceiling fan which was enough. Alma made everything super easy and Alex was there to help - even when we needed someone to help us with a few family pictures. Would definitely recommend to a family member or friend.

Great family trip!

  • 4 of 5

Our family vacation to the Villa Felicia was fantastic! As a family of 6 adults and an infant, there was more than enough space, both family and private, for everyone to feel comfortable and happy. The house could use some minor updates, especially in the bathrooms, but everything was functional and well stocked (especially the kitchen!).

Without a doubt the best part of the villa and grounds were the access to the Beach Club and other amenities...we would have been extremely disappointed if we hadn't upgraded and if you're not interested in doing so I would recommend staying elsewhere. The Beach Club, Water Park, and other amenities included in the upgrade made the vacation fantastic and exceptionally memorable. The property, and specifically the grounds of the Ritz Reserve on Dorado Beach, are the most beautiful that we've seen in Puerto Rico.

We can't recommend the villa enough...so long as you be sure to be sponsored for all of the fantastic amenities of the Ritz Reserve.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This is our 4th trip in 3 years to the Dorado beach resort and we love it. From the water sports, water parks , pools, golf , beach and onsite restaurants- this place has it all. The fairways villa was great for our family of 7 and convenient to everything. We will definitely be back soon!! Thanks Alma!!
