Discover Dorado Beach
Land Experiences

Land carries the stories of those who stood there before. It invites exploration. It gives life and helps it grow. Experiencing the land in Puerto Rico is strolling amid the cobbled streets and colorful houses of Old San Juan; trekking through a preserved cave that ends with a breathtaking view; and following the journey of Puerto Rican coffee from bean to cup.

Rockefeller Nature Trail

Winding its way through the resort's 50 acres, this 11-mile trail takes guests past the two courses, along the soft sands beaches, and through tree-shaded forests where moist, cool air offers relief from the sun. Named after the resort's original developer Laurance S. Rockefeller, the trail can be explored on foot, by bike or with a golf cart.

Golf in Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico

The resort’s two courses present players with both the joy and challenge of the sport. Designed to capture the beauty of nature, the Tournament Players Club courses offer 18 holes each and use native sand, manmade rivers and contoured bunkers to test even the most seasoned golfer.

Explore the Courses

East Course

Robert Trent Jones, Jr. modernized his father’s original seaside course, but its history remains. Tree trunks bear the marks of golf balls that went astray, and each hole is named for the trees that surround it. In his restoration, Jones Jr. brought back the ocean views and used native sand to contour the bunkers. The 18-hole course plays more than 7,200 yards.

Sugarcane Course

The more challenging of the resort’s two golf courses, the Sugarcane Course features larger fairways and greens and demands even the most skilled players to negotiate forced carries and deep bunkers. Rivers and lakes on the back nine offer a fresh perspective.

Water Park & Pools

Water is a healer, a powerful force of nature, a necessity for life. At the resort, where the ocean sits just at its edge, it is a source of both thrilling adventure and quiet reflection. Experiences extend beyond the sea to include a family-friendly waterpark and two swimming pools.

Access to the ocean and pool, a comfortable bed, cooling refreshments, soothing shade and sun-friendly amenities are part of the poolside cabana experience.

Above the Water and Below
Sea Experiences

The vastness of the ocean is a reminder that while we reside on the planet, there is so much of it we have yet to discover. Puerto Rico provides an opportunity to experience the world above and below the water’s surface, to head toward the horizon aboard a private yacht, find yourself amid a school of colorful fish or revel in the silence as you cast your line into the sea.

Set Sail

From the coastal cities of Puerto Rico, the sea and ocean beckon the curious, the adventurous and the free-spirited. To experience the water, you simply need to feel it gently bob beneath you, hear its soothing hum, breathe in its salty air or look out at its vastness.
