    Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve
    Dorado
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 956 reviewsTripAdvisor (956)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    This elegant Ritz-Carlton property sits on an eco-friendly reserve on Puerto Rico's northern shore and offers access to a mile of sandy shoreline and an 11-mile nature trail. While adults are teeing off on the three stunning 18-hole golf courses or indulging in a spa treatment amid the leafy canopy, kids can get acquainted with fellow resortgoers while participating in supervised Ambassadors of the Environment activities. Meanwhile, each of the resort's opulent guest rooms and suites boasts a balcony, a deep soaking tub and an outdoor shower. And the buck doesn't stop there. The waterfront COA restaurant offers locally inspired cuisine, including various dishes made in a custom wood-burning oven. Or, visitors can savor grilled meats and seafood at Encanto Beach Club Bar and Grill or fresh sushi, ceviche and tapas at Positivo Sand Bar. Overall, past guests praised the resort's cuisine and accommodations, although several warned that everything, from the dishes to the spa treatments to the room rates, is expensive. However, the property's daily resort fee covers perks like in-room Wi-Fi access and valet parking. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by choosing to stay here.

    Free Breakfast

    If you're seeking over-the-top luxury on Antigua, look no further than Jumby Bay Island. For a pretty penny, you can bask on this small private islet 2 miles off the northeast coast of Antigua and soak up the rays on its powdery white sands. Despite its cost, recent guests thought their money was well-spent: With spectacular vistas and top-notch service, visitors had very few complaints. As for digs, Jumby Bay's Rondavel rooms reside in octagonal cottages, and each features a four-poster bed, a private courtyard, a wraparound terrace and an outdoor shower. If you can shell out some additional coin for a private villa (read: estate), you'll get your own pool and direct beach access. The resort itself offers land and water sports, three pools, a tennis club and The Jumby Bay Spa. When hunger sets in, you'll have your pick of three sit-down dining venues, which serve everything from casual poolside fare to Italian-inspired dishes to upscale Caribbean cuisine. A grab-and-go beach shack with West Indian-style street snacks (think: fresh seafood and wraps) is available as well. All meals, snacks and beverages are covered by the resort's all-inclusive room rates.

    Stretching across 8 acres of Grenada's prized Grand Anse Beach, Spice Island Beach Resort is a family-run boutique resort. Surrounded by lemon, almond and sea grape trees, each suite features a patio, balcony or terrace, plus a minibar, bathrobes and slippers, Frette linens and Molton Brown toiletries. Recent guests agree that the Seagrape Beach Suites are worth the splurge thanks to their whirlpool tubs with ocean views, private patios and gardens, chaise lounge chairs and double hammock sets. Just in case hammock-lounging didn't fill your relaxation quota, the in-house Janissa's Spa provides body polishes and massages. And encouraging guests to take advantage of its primo beachside location, Spice Island's all-inclusive room rates cover snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, tennis, cycling and green fees at a local golf course. When hunger strikes, head to Oliver's Restaurant, which serves up a Creole-inspired menu accompanied by live music, or the Sea and Surf Terrace & Bar for gourmet international dishes with a Caribbean twist. Although a few past diners desired more on-site dining options, most enjoyed their meals at both eateries.

    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    The key to COMO Parrot Cay is personalization: Located on a private Turks and Caicos island northeast of Providenciales, this boutique resort strives to embody the perfect beach vacation for every taste, with various experiences that include customized excursions and intimate dinners. Head to the COMO Shambhala Retreat to enjoy a private yoga class or a hot river stone massage. For a more active experience, borrow kayaks or snorkeling gear to use at your leisure. Even dining is up to you: Eat in your villa, in one of two restaurants or on the beach. Guests love COMO Parrot Cay's food, which is always fresh, organic (when possible) and Caribbean-inspired. However, some caution that the on-site cuisine is expensive. After dinner, retire to one of 72 guest rooms, suites, villas or houses, which are all bathed with natural light and adorned with four-poster beds (draped in white voile), minibars and private verandas or sun decks.

When it's time to bid adieu to another sunny day, grab drinks and tapas at Bar Soleil or enjoy more substantial Mediterranean-inspired fare at Cafe Celeste. Both eateries earn rave reviews from diners, although a few visitors say the service at the restaurants and throughout the property is hit or miss.

    Guests consistently laud Sandy Lane for its impressive grounds, luxurious amenities and accommodating staff. Welcoming Barbados visitors since 1961, Sandy Lane's spacious rooms, suites, penthouses and villa boast elegant furnishings, marble bathrooms with dual vanities, desks and balconies or patios with views of verdant gardens or the Caribbean Sea. And the grandeur doesn't stop there. This Leading Hotels of the World outpost also features lavish recreational facilities, including three golf courses and a 47,000-square-foot spa. (Recent guests raved about the opulent spa treatments and tasty dishes served at The Spa Café.) Though the golf courses and spa are no doubt impressive, don't forget to carve out some lounging time on Sandy Lane Beach, where the resort provides cold towels, sorbets, fresh fruit and Evian mists. Whether your day was spent relaxing by the sea (or the 7,500-square-foot pool) or swinging on the greens, previous visitors suggest watching the sun set at one of the four on-site eateries. Though some former patrons bemoaned the property's underwhelming afternoon tea service, many praised the delectable (albeit pricey) cuisine. However, Leaders Club members receive complimentary perks, such as daily breakfast for two, during their stays.

    At The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, you might have a hard time deciding whether to start along the resort's coral sands or inside your comfy lodgings. Recent visitors praised the guest rooms, which are outfitted with private balconies or terraces, soaking tubs, Asprey toiletries and minifridges. However, some lamented the pricey daily resort fee. You can reserve a tee time at the nine-hole, Greg Norman-designed golf course, schedule a treatment at the spa or make use of the resort's complimentary kayaks, rafts and snorkel gear. Or, park yourself on the sand. The resort offers a prime Cayman Islands location, extending 144 acres across the Caribbean to the North Sound, facing Seven Mile Beach's shoreline. When you're ready to refuel, head to Blue by Eric Ripert, or try one of the property's five other restaurants or bars. What's more, this Ritz-Carlton outpost falls under the Marriott banner, meaning Marriott Bonvoy members can collect or redeem points here.

    Since it opened in 1953 a little more than 8 miles west of Montego Bay, Jamaica, the Round Hill Hotel and Villas has played host to the likes of Grace Kelly, Cole Porter and Jackie Kennedy, among other celebrities. Guests say it's the property's setting that makes this boutique resort timeless and elegant. Inside the hotel's 36 guest rooms, travelers will find furniture designed by Ralph Lauren and embellished in whites, pinks and blues, plus four-poster beds and rain showers. Round Hill's 27 villa suites boast open-air living rooms and verandas, along with two to six bedrooms and cottage housekeepers (who will cook you breakfast for an additional fee). Some villas are also home to private pools surrounded by lush foliage. Although many visitors rave about the views from their accommodations, several caution that digs here are outdated. Reviewers also give mixed feedback about the resort's service. Round Hill offers a wide selection of activities for those who want to venture outside their rooms, including tennis, water sports and spa treatments in a restored 18th-century plantation house. After a fun-filled day in the sun, guests may dine at a restaurant headed by James Beard Award-winning chef Martin Maginley or sip cocktails at one of three bars. All-inclusive packages are available for travelers who wish to enjoy all of their meals and drinks on-site.

    Free WiFi

    Luxury is the name of The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort's game. Occupying a former coconut plantation along Bahia's shoreline in northeastern Puerto Rico, this property boasts 100-foot palms and enviable beach access. Accommodations feature beamed ceilings, private terraces or balconies, minibars, butler service and Wi-Fi access (which is part of the daily resort fee). To get the lay of the land, travelers recommend venturing outside your gorgeous room or suite to check out the flowing fairways of the Robert Trent Jones Jr. Golf Course and the resort's expansive seaside pool. If you're looking for more action, a concierge can help you arrange hiking, biking and water expeditions. Or, you can unwind with a massage at the Reméde Spa. When hunger sets in, dine on bistro cuisine at the poolside Seagrapes Restaurant or fresh Caribbean fare at the Beach Club Restaurant. Guests caution that a stay here will cost a pretty penny, but thanks to St. RegisMarriott connection, Marriott Bonvoy members can use points to cover the cost of their rooms.

    This Four Seasons resort melds contemporary architecture into Anguilla's lush landscape. Sitting on the country's southwestern coast, the property boasts a varied list of recreational amenities (just in case relaxing on the two white sand beaches is too sedentary for you). Sign up for a fitness boot camp class, test your swing on one of three tennis courts or tackle the multilevel rock climbing wall. When it's time to relax those muscles, head to the waterfront spa and let the rolling waves provide the soundtrack to your massage – a resort component guests consistently rave about – or lounge by the adults-only saltwater infinity pool, which overlooks the ocean. To experience even more sea views, reserve a table at one of the four traveler-approved restaurants. Visitors also heap praise on the rooms and suites, which are outfitted with deep soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers, outdoor sun decks, Nespresso machines, free Wi-Fi access and stocked minibars, though some report minor housekeeping issues like turndown service without chocolates and unreplenished coffee supplies.

    A popular hideaway for honeymooners, Baoase Luxury Resort sits on the southwestern side of Curacao, less than a 9-mile drive southeast of the island's international airport. Recent guests gushed about the hotel's attentive staff and its prime location on a secluded beach. And with just 23 rooms, suites and villas (and its own private island), it's easy to see how the resort manages to create an intimate atmosphere for lodgers. Aside from the five-star customer service, past visitors were pleased with their accommodations, especially the beachfront suites, which boast private infinity pools. If you're not willing to splurge on a suite, you'll still enjoy resort or sea views from your room's balcony or patio, plus complimentary Wi-Fi access, a flat-screen TV, a minibar and a Sonos sound system, among other amenities. When you're not lounging in your digs, retreat to the resort's infinity pool, recline in a chair on the man-made beach or schedule a treatment at the spa. The beach is also where you'll find the resort's restaurant, which offers a menu of French international cuisine with an Asian twist. Although reviewers found the food delicious, they also said the prices are high.

Travelers love the plethora of things to do and the friendly, helpful staff, although some say beverage service at the restaurants and bars is hit or miss.

If you want to experience Petit Piton but in a more laid-back atmosphere, consider indulging in a treatment at the Rainforest Spa, located at the base of the mountain. Refuel for more island exploration and relaxation at the three on-site restaurants, including the casual beachfront Bayside Restaurant and the elegant Great Room Restaurant. A third option, the Terrace Restaurant, is also available for breakfast and dinner daily. Reviewers love the property's clean accommodations, superb service and incredible cuisine, although some warn that a stay here isn't cheap and is best suited for couples (especially honeymooners).
