Guest Book Comments:: We had a wonderful time at the Dorado Villa. It was absolutely beautiful and more than we expected.-Shylin , Astoria, NY shylin@nyc

-The villa is beautiful and spacious. We traveled with another family (10 people total)and had plenty of space for everyone. The area is lovely and very well taken care of. We could not have asked for a better spot to spend our time in Puerto Rico. We would definitely stay here again.- C.Binetti

Our group consisted of 9 adult women ranging in age from 25-62. We all loved the villa. It is in a nice central location for day trips around the island, especially Old San Juan, snorkeling trips and fishing. It is approximately a 2 hr drive from Fajardo where we enjoyed a kayak trip to a luminescent bay (very exiting) as well as other beaches. The villa has many rooms condusive to conversation, an often used laundry room, and 5 bathrooms which were much appreciated by all 9 women. The villa is well equipped with all necessary appliances, furniture, dishes, etc. It is also nice to have the congierge service available at the Embassy Suites nearby. We all thoroughly loved our stay at the villa. Elizabeth is very cordial and makes sure that you are happy. We can't wait to visit again.

Great place to stay at a very reasonable price!

  • 5 of 5

If your travel plans include Puerto Rico and you are not interested in staying in the San Juan area then Dorado is the place to visit and Elizabeth's Villa at Villas de Golf is the place stay. This is my second stay at Elizabeth's villa along with a very large family gathering. The villa is only about 35 to 40 minutes from the airport. The villa was clean, neat and orderly and the furniture and appliances are modern. Elizabeth provides useful and clear instructions for how to get there from the airport, use her facilities, and depart at the end of your stay. She is very friendly and attentive to any and all questions that you may have. My family and I enjoyed our stay immensely and plan to stay there again.

Amazing Property and Convenient Location! Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I take an annual trip to Puerto Rico. This was our first time staying in Dorado and this was the perfect location for us! We were a group of 8 and we had plenty of space to be together as a group, but also had enough room to relax if we wanted to be on our own. The beach was a short walk from the home and the amenities we had access to at the hotel were great.

Elizabeth was great to deal with and and was available for any questions we had during our stay.

We look forward to coming back again!

Very spacious and just as pictured!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the property it was just as described and was able to accommidate our large family! The location was ideal because we were attending a wedding at the Ritz just down the road and the property was well maintained and clean. The owner was quick to respond to emails usually within a hour or two and had plenty of info in the villa for the surrounding areas on things to do and how things worked in the villa. Lots of personal space which is hard to do when traveling with a large group. We traveled with my Mother in law and Father in law, Sister in law with her husband and three children another Sister in law and her son and myself my Husband and our 4 year old son and there were plenty of beds and space for everyone. I would recommend this villa to our friends and family and would stay here again if we needed this much space. The surrounding hotels were about 175 a night for one room so this villa was very reasonable for the space and bedrooms. We are very glad we stayed here and everyone in our party was happy with the villa.

Wow! All I thought it would be and more!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I arranged a trip to Puerto Rico for my parents' 40th anniversary. There were 9 of us who stayed at the villa all ranging in age from 11-58. The villa was huge and allowed for everyone to have their own space. There was nothing that we needed at the villa that wasn't already provided. The book that Elizabeth left and the pictures in the cabinets were wonderful!! The villa is in a perfect location in Puerto Rico - the area was nice and we were able to get to places around the area very easily. We loved all the patios off of the bedrooms. We spent many mornings on the patios overlooking the golf course. The walk to the Embassy Suites beach and casino was very short...the casino was awesome - smoke free!! My son was able to meet a friend who lives in the villas and was able to play on the golf course which he loved. We all had a fabulous time. If I had a dollar for every time I heard my dad say - this villa is so cool, or awesome...I would be rich. He loved the architecture and arrangement of everything. Elizabeth was wonderful to work with - she was quick to answer my many questions and always gave thorough answers and also was a great resource and gave many great suggestions. Thank you Elizabeth for a wonderful place to stay!

Great rental spot in Puerto Rico!!!

  • 5 of 5

This 4 story villa was awesome. All the bedrooms (4) had their own full bathrooms. The view was great from the bedroom windows. Very quiet and we had the pool all to ourselfs most of the time. The 24 hour security was great and polite. Property was well maintained and very clean. The owner was great, she was very informative about the surroundings, and was always a phone call away if we needed her. I highly recommend this beautiful villa to any family or group of friends looking for a nice place to rent. We didnt golf, but we did go to the casino. Even the town was great. Dorado is one of the cleanest towns in Puerto Rico. The only thing I didnt like was that when we ran out of beer we had to drive to the supermarket, its a very long walk from the villa to the shopping area. Other then that it was a great place.

Dorado is located on the north coast of Puerto Rico just 35 minutes from San Juan, Old San Juan, & just far enough from the hustle and bustle of city life to relax and take in the tropical lifestyle & surroundings of this small quiet town. It's location on the island is ideal as it's central to popular sightseeing spots. The Villa is located within a private gated community with 24 hour security in addition to having its own gate & security at the entrance to the complex. The pool, putting green, & tennis courts are steps from the front door. The golf course is outside the back door, & the beach is an easy, flat 5 min walk away. New Casino at Hotel next door opening 1/2011. There are multiple restaurants, grocery store, & 24 hour pharmacy within a mile of the Villa. In addition there's a well equipped Gym nearby. Outlet shopping 30min away. The weather is incredible, the water is pristine, the people are friendly, & the food is delicious

Other Activities: Casino at Hotel next door due to open 01/2011, Well Equipped Gym, Sightseeing, Shopping, Restaurants, Cinemas, Library, Playground, Putting Green

Golf: The Villa is located directly on the Chi Chi Rodriguez designed golf course of Dorado del Mar considered the most challenging in Puerto Rico.
