Guests at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve enoy 1,400 acres of luxury, accommodations set directly on the beach, and world-class cuisine by Jose Andres. According to Bon Appetit, they also enoy cookies baked right on the beach. A solar oven set directly on the beach does the honors, and takes only 15 minutes to heat up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. It can also be used to cook pizza.
