This is a review from April 2013. I cannot access my original trip advisor account and so have copied my review into my new account. After reading several extremely positive reviews (seriously I couldn’t find one negative comment or review), I contacted Joyce from Rancho Lorilar directly and within a couple of hours she responded and answered all of my...

The two of us did the morning expedition today and I can only agree with the majority of reviews - Joyce is welcoming, upfront, friendly and helpful. If you were nervous at all she does a great job of reading into the ride. Her staff are professional all the way, from the spotless air conditioned mini van that picked us... More

From communicating with Joyce via email prior to the trip to communication afterwards this was a great experience. Joyce got right back with us and helped plan a great day. We rode for many hours, stopped to swim in a clear lagoon and ate at a small family ranch. The meal was just wonderful (much better than resort food) and... More

Both myself and my husband had never been on a horse before so this was always going to be an interesting day, but Joyce and the guys were so friendly and so helpful, they catered for all ages and all abilities. The photos and dvd of the day are fab! Very reasonably priced and well worth getting. I would definitely... More

Take bananas for horses and little sausages for doggies. I did as I have my own dogs. Up to u. Great morning out. Good for all levels of riders. Booked with Thomson rep from hotel.

Booked the 2 hour ride in the morning and was given introduction and welcome then matched with Blas a white horse. All horses are well trained, safe and happy. Went into... More

My girlfriends and I visited Rancho Lorilar to go horseback riding while on vacation in Puerto Plata. Prior to our visit, I'd communicated with Joyce who was great. She was accommodating and full of information. When we arrived at the Ranch, we were met with the same friendly demeanor from Joyce and the other staff. We did the full day... More
