Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in early August at Luis's beautiful villa! Family of 7, we stayed for a week. The villa is very spacious and had everything we needed. The little ones were able to watch cartoons when needed, the kitchen was a blast to cook in, showers, laundry, Wi-Fi, etc all great. Resting on the porch was delightful. The grounds are just beautiful and very easy to get around with the golf cart and bikes or just walking. The beaches are incredible...from our 18 month old to our 16 year old we all enjoyed the sand and the water. The pools and parks on the reserve are fanstastic for day and night swims. The fitness center is 2nd to none and the tennis courts/basketball courts were fun to play on. We easily purchased groceries near the property and had meals at the Villa most of the time, but we did venture into Old San Juan, El Morro, and the rain forest El Yunque a couple of days for unforgettable adventures. And my wife and I managed to have some "date nights" at the Ritz Carlton main hotel bar/restaurants where the food and drink were fabulous. An amazing week on Puerto Rico at Luis's Villa....we will be back!

The Only Place to stay in Puerto Rico

  • 5 of 5
Sculptur's Retreat is a great place to stay while vacationing in Puerto Rico! Dorado Beach and The Ritze Carlton Reserve is a high end resort with many amenities. My family of 6, including parents, a teenager and 3 young adults in early 20's had lots to do on the reserve. The six bikes and pretty back terrace really attracted me to this villa. The terrace lived up to my expectations and we had an extra bonus with a visit from El Senor Frog every night looking for dinner for his frog family.

Every morning, we played tennis at the courts next to the villa. We took a few bike rides on the extensive bike and golf cart trails, including an 11 mile trail all with in the resort grounds. A golf cart is also included with the villa, which was handy getting to the beach and restaurants at the resort.

We ate at Encanto Beach Club Bar and Grill a couple of times during beach and pool outings. I recommend the Chicken Quesadillas...the best I've ever had, and being from Texas, I have tried alot of quesadillas. Another great beach restaurant on the resort is Barlovento near the GoodWinds Water sports; I had a great salad with grilled chicken. We would have liked to go again but it is closed Monday and Tuesday. I wish my son would have taken advantage of the great opportunity to learn kite sailing at GoodWinds, keep in mind it takes at least 3 times to get proficient.

Restaurants we liked outside the resort, in the town of Dorado, for Caribbean cuisine is La Terraza and Metropol. We took 2 day trip excursions to El Yunque National Park and Old San Juan. I loved Old San Juan with lots of history and colorful houses. Lots of photo opps of the architecture and of course had to eat at El Senor Frog...great margaritas. I would skip El Yunque...too many people.

The Hacienda (Sculpters Retreat) was spacious and comfortable. Great kitchen to fix meals and the out door grill came in handy too. The villa location is great with the West Course fairways expansive views from the wall of windows and the out door terrace. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and shower a real bonus for large families.

Great owner to work with. I highly recommend Sculpters Retreat!!!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
We found our piece of Paradise at the Sculptor's Retreat Dorado Beach. The owner was so kind and helpful. The villa was perfectly appointed to meet the needs of our family of 7, including 3 children. Two of our favorite times of the day was enjoying morning coffee and evening sunsets on the beautiful back terrace. The golf cart provided a fun and easy way to travel the property along with the bikes. The beauty of Dorado Beach can not be truly appreciated in pictures….we constantly stumbled upon pockets of perfection all over the property. The food at all of the restaurants was fantastic but pricey. We ate breakfast in the villa every morning, lunch out every day, and then grilled out several nights in the villa. We found a mini Whole Foods called La Hacienda just a few minutes down the road from the villa that had fabulous pre-marinated meats. Favorites: Watermill Water Park, Livingston Park, snorkeling at beach club, playing tennis at villa court, dinner at Zafra, and really every minute we were there. We will be back….soon than later I hope!!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
I rented Luis's Villa on the Ritz Reserve property for four nights in mid-June. We were a party of 6 (three couples all around 30 years old and recently married). The villa was perfect. The location is on the property of the Ritz, but not in the actual hotel, and about half the price! It also allowed for all three couples to be in one villa with our own bedrooms, own bathrooms, common kitchen/living area for hanging out, and awesome private porch with great views (not of the ocean but still great). The grounds of the Ritz are unbelievable. The property is massive with multiple amenities - golf, at least 5 places to eat/drink, private beaches, water sports, work out facility, and miles and miles of trails to hike/bike.

The only negative on the property is the expensive food and drink at the hotel pools and restaurants, but that's no different than any resort. Plus, having our own villa with a kitchen and patio allowed us to bring a lot of our own food/drink when hanging out there.

Luis was also great to work with - very easy, and he met us with his family as we arrived to show us around. I would recommend Luis's villa to anyone looking to make a trip to Puerto Rico, and the Ritz Reserve has unbelievable grounds for the perfect vacation for couples, families, friends, etc.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner for a quick tour of the villa. We had 8 in our party and we all had plenty of room. Very clean and large kitchen and living area to hang out. The patio was huge and opened to the golf course. Beautiful view. I recommend getting a 2nd golf cart if you have more than 4 in your party. The property is huge and the carts made it fun and convenient to get around. The owner Luis was available and very helpful when planning the trip. The resort is amazing. The villa is the best of both worlds. If you want a night in, the villa is relaxing and if you want to go out the resort has some restaurants to visit. We cant wait to go back.
