Great overall stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation here after Christmas 2016 into the 2017 New Year. The overall Dorado property is a really special place (former Rockefeller estate and nature preserve that the Ritz Reserve has put significant money into to develop over the last few years). From San Juan airport, it was about 30-45 minutes but a world away from the cold Northeast US we were coming from. The condo on Fairways is quite good for a family looking for comfortable accommodations on a great resort. Rooms and the overall property are well maintained with full kitchen, towels, washer/dryer, golf cart, etc. While there might be newer properties on the resort the home on Fairways had everything we needed. Juan, the owner, is also highly responsive and knows a lot about the property/area. I had a lot of questions before the trip and he was quick to give input on every occasion. While the property is close to a convenient, small pool across the parking lot which requires key access, we spent most of our time traveling on the property to the beach/larger pools, gym, golf, watersports @ Goodwinds (owned by ex-Olympian Karla), etc. My kids had a great time doing the surf and kiteboarding lessons at Goodwinds and the beach area has a nice break wall which makes the ocean manageable for even smaller kids. The golf course is also great and clears out generally after the early morning rush. Svevo at the resort concierge desk was also a great resource especially when booking at the restaurants and activities. For more complete access to the Dorado Ritz Resort amenities including the restaurants, beach club, Ambassadors youth program, golf discounts, gym, etc I highly recommend becoming a short term member which the owner can help you with. In terms of restaurants, Positivo for sushi was great for the more formal dinner we had, beach restaurants/ encanto / by goodwinds for day/lunch time in bathing suits and Zafra also kept the whole family happy. Since the distance between the property and the beach/main hotel/goodwinds/golf, watermill water park/gym are all fairly spread out, the golf cart is also very helpful. We had a rental car since we wanted to explore off resort a bit and pick up supplies at the local SuperMaxx grocery but there is more than enough on the resort property to keep the family busy for a full vacation. My family was sad to leave and hope to be back in the near future.

Excellent stay, very nice property, amazing resort facilities. Will return!

  • 5 of 5

The villa/townhome is located inside the exclusive Dorado Beach development a 25 minute highway drive from the city of San Juan. The villa is huge--the photos do not do justice to how comfortable the property and it layout are! The bedrooms are very generously sized and the common areas and kitchen are laid out for casual living and entertaining. The property is surrounded by gorgeous gardens, rolling, well-maintained lawns and also has two assigned parking spaces. The owner and his brother who dealt with us were i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-y responsive and accommodating with our questions and requests. The overall facility, accessible throughout using the villa's very handy Yamaha golf cart is very impressive in the variety and quality of the offerings. In addition to the option to purchase a premium membership, there are also openly accessible pools across the parking lot and a 7 minute golf cart ride away. The beach is divine and it's 4 minutes away by golf cart (there is some construction in the area, but it's a minor inconvenience once you are swimming in the wonderful ocean). The best surfing in Dorado is also a 4 minute ride away. The villa itself is of older construction but it is very well maintained and extensively equipped with all the expected amenities, including hotel-quality towels and beach towels and chairs. Very classy and helpful. Do not miss the opportunity for breakfast at MiCasa, the Jose Andres restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton. We are planning to return again, probably in the late spring.

A note to folks arriving for a longer stay: it is worthwhile to plan ahead and stop at the supermarket or the nearest Walmart to buy food and other necessities, because once ensconced in the privacy and luxury of Dorado Beach you won't want to go back out again!

Great Place for Families

  • 5 of 5

The listing/description of the property and the pictures depicted the villa well. The villa although dated was well maintained and clean and the fair price reflects this well. Juan was very easy to deal with and was highly accommodating to our needs. I inadvertently had mistaken our arrival date by one day and Juan bent over backwards to accommodate us arriving a day early and ensured that we were comfortable. We had two adults and six kids (mostly teenagers) and we never felt we were on top of each other or that we couldn't get privacy when necessary. The villa was well stocked with the necessities and the golf cart was certainly a huge benefit. The Dorado Ritz property is nothing less than spectacular and offers something for everybody. I would highly recommend this unit.

Great Stay at Fairway Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent a wonderful week here. We were looking for a vacation where we wouldn't have to fight crowds to get a shady spot on the beach and where we could enjoy the beach, tennis and golf. This villa fit the bill for us. It was clean and there were plenty of towels and a washer dryer. There was plenty of space for us to spread out. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The kitchen and living area was open and comfortable. We all enjoyed the golf cart which came with the villa and appreciated the second cart which Juan made available to us. The resort property is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring it with the golf carts. We also used the beautiful fitness center and Watermill pool. The villa was well located - about a 7 minute fun ride to the beach club, the fitness center and Watermill pool. There is also a nice pool and tennis court at the villa. The Encanto Beach Club which we had access to with the Dorado Club membership was terrific. We got all the towels we wanted and free lounge chairs and umbrellas at the beach and pool. The beach is beautiful. There is also food and drink service there. We were there during the busy week between Christmas and New Year's and it never felt crowded. Juan was great to work with and took the time to give us a tour of the property when we got there. He was available to answer questions and very helpful. Thanks Juan for a great vacation. We will be back.
