How it Ranks: Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve ranks #1 out of 319 Puerto Rico Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the Caribbean.

Our Take: This elegant Ritz-Carlton property sits on an eco-friendly reserve on Puerto Rico's northern shore. Occupying the site of Laurance S. Rockefeller's first ever RockResort, Dorado's setting is nothing short of spectacular: Here, guests have access to a mile of sandy shoreline, protected lagoons and an 11-mile nature trail. While adults are teeing off on the stunning 72-hole golf course or indulging in a spa treatment amid the leafy canopy, kids can get acquainted with fellow resort-goers at the state-of-the-art aquatic playground. Meanwhile, each of the resort's 115 opulent guest rooms boast their own rooftop balcony or private plunge pool. And the buck doesn't stop there. The swanky Mi Casa restaurant offers culinary specialties designed by distinguished chef, José Andrés. (Recent travelers highlight Positivo Sand Bar and Encanto Beach Club Bar and Grill as enticing dining options, too). But, according to recent guests, what separates this hotel apart from its rivals is its extremely attentive hotel staff, who go above and beyond to ensure guests are happy. Thanks to the Ritz' Marriott ties, those participating in the company's rewards program are eligible to receive free nights for choosing to stay here.
