Dorado Beach, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve

By Chris Boyle

Su Casa

Swimming Pool / Su Casa

Key selling points: A meticulous, multimillion-dollar renovation respectfully restored this once privately owned estate home to the grandeur of its Hollywood heyday.

Colonial charm pairs with modern creature comforts across four bedrooms, a living room, dining room, and library, while outdoors, a grand balcony, manicured grounds, towering palms, and an infinity pool and whirlpool set the scene for blissful seaside relaxation.

Standout service: A guest mentioned needing more privacy to take a bath on the veranda, so staff spent three hours setting up curtains to elegantly shield the al fresco bathtub.

Style: Haute hacienda, by Otto Octavio Reyes Casanova and Wilson Associates, in collaboration with the Puerto Rico Historical Society, 2012

Veranda / Su CasaSpecial amenities: A bottle of Dom Pérignon upon arrival, on-site personal butler, an evening of complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, Fili d’Oro linens, 46- and 55-inch Samsung flat-screen TVs, Spa Botánico toiletries, Wolf kitchen appliances
