July 2020
The property was hands down one of the most gorgeous ones we have visited, and our one bedroom with private pool was nothing short of amazing. The spa is one of the finest in the world! The only downside is that the reserve must of had reduced staff - twice our room service was delayed well over an hour (dinner over 2 hours), with each delay we never received a curtesy call letting us know, a few food/beverage orders were completely missed, the restaurant service was slow at times, our room was not restocked one of the days, and there was no where close to purchase toiletries (their “market” was closed).

Always amazing!
I love Dorado! It’s my 4th visit, and it never disappoints. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds are immaculate, the plunge pool jacuzzi is amazing, and the omakase on the beach might be the best part!

Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
The property itself is beautiful - pools, spa, beach. The service was terrible. Everything we asked for either took forever or was wrong. Guest night they said they’d be back with extra pillows, never arrived. Room service took almost 2 hours. Food served incorrectly or missing over and over. Given how much we paid (15k) we were pretty disappointed. Wouldn’t return.
