The Secret Spot
One of many unique aspects of your experience at the Ritz-Carlton's Dorado Beach is the Embajador ("butler") service. Upon checking in, you are assigned an embajador to your room to assist you with any and all needs from making dinner reservations to renting bikes for the duration of your stay. When I and my fiancé arrived to the Ritz-Carlton, we were quite a bit early. Our room was not yet ready, which was not a problem at all. The front desk offered me use of several amenities to accommodate me while I waited, but I was more interested in a tour of the resort. My request was met with a genuine and enthusiastic man acting as my embajador for the next two hours. He indulged my every question, providing historical details and cultural facts about the plantation on which the resort was built. Then we asked,"What is your favorite spot on the resort". He pondered this for a moment, driving us around in the golf cart while the breeze whipped through our hair. His face lit up as he was able to decide on just one thing: the secret spot behind suite buildings 9 and 10. So he took us straight there. A little gazebo highlighted the landscape, perched on an outcropping of land and surrounded by the blue ocean and toffee colored sands on both sides. He told us this is the best view on the resort, and they often times will set up special dinners for honeymooners or couples to enjoy a quiet and intimate evening alone by the water. We loved it.
