Fodor's Review

Following a recent $342 million renovation, this Ritz-Carlton Reserve ups the ante with a roster of posh offerings, including a restaurant from Fodor's Tastemaker Chef Jose Andres, and an incredible setting along three miles of Puerto Rican coastline. The 1,400-acre property was once part of the Laurance Rockefeller estate, and an 11-mile walking and biking trail that winds its way through the eco-preserve is now named for the former owner. The Reserve (Ritz-Carlton's

second after Thailand) is home to several pools (including dedicated family and adults-only options), a water activities department, and a 5-acre Spa Botanico with tree-house treatment platforms. Guest also enjoy privileges at three 18-hole golf courses located partly on the property and at five tennis courts. All 100 rooms, 14 one-bedroom suites, and the four-bedroom Su Casa villa have direct beach access and perks like 400 thread-count sheets, supersized flatscreens, indoor-outdoor bathrooms, soaking tubs, and Wi-Fi. If you need more reasons not to leave the property, there are also several dining options, including two casual beach eateries and a cafe. Snag a terrace seat at the Mi Casa restaurant, where Chef Andres oversees a menu of modern American-Spanish-Caribbean dishes, served with sweeping ocean views.
