Provide a 1-3 liner highlighting your experience!

Currently undergoing my first winter in New York since my move from Southern California, the warm ocean breezes, beautiful beaches and lush vegetation captured my heart. 85 degrees never felt so good.

Words to describe what you felt when you first arrived:

Relaxation. Hearing the ocean waves just footsteps away from my room and the warm feeling of the Caribbean sun took my body into a state of reverie.

Where did you stay?

Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

With whom would you recommend staying at this hotel / resort?

The Ritz Carlton Reserve is a resort for everyone. Connecting rooms are available for families, private plunge pools available for those romantic getaways and even 3 to 4 bedroom residences can accommodate multigenerational families.

Tempt us: Name the most special place you discovered on this trip.

The 11 Mile Rockefeller Nature Trail can be explored on foot, golf cart or even bike, which come with each accommodation.

The Spa Botanico is nestled into 5 acres of the resort’s property. The entrance of the spa is an apothecary, which upon entering, a soothing smell of lavender and other local plants/herbs relax the mind, body and soul marking the beginning of one of the most unique moments in my travel memories.

What’s the best time of year to go in your opinion?

October- June

Anything else to add?

Jean-Michel Cousteau Ambassadors of the Environment is designed to introduce guests to the natural wonders and rich cultural traditions of Puerto Rico. Participants can discover coral reefs, diversity of birds, wetlands and Taino culture.

The rooms are beautifully appointed, private butler service is exceptional, the cuisine is exquisite and there are plenty of activities for exploration or relaxation. Considering myself a beach aficionado, this resort is top class.
