We stayed with Illeana in a villa on AirBNB and this place is amazing. From the privacy to the infinity pool and the private dipping pool to the gorgeous views from the hotel deck and beach. This place has it all. We were glad to have a car, so we enjoyed driving into Rincon for surfing, snorkeling, and meals, but... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Horned Dorset three times in the past two years and will surely go back. The Residences are exquisitely furnished to convey not just luxury, but tranquility and a romantic atmosphere. Each time we leave rejuvenated, renewed and revitalized. Heads up! Be aware that the villas do not have a tv or radio,... More

My husband works in Puerto RIco and I met him for our 27th Wedding Anniversary. We were told that it was one of the most romantic places in Puerto RIco and I must agree with that statement! Although we were first promised a different room, I can not complain, because the room we were given was beautiful definitely as large... More

We stayed at the HDP for an anniversary celebration. This resort is located at a spectacular setting! We stayed at a oceanfront villa which is beautifully furnished and from everywhere you sit you have a little bit of ocean in house living room. The private pool is a plus as you can sunbathe poolside the moment you wake up. The... More

We have been going to the Horned Dorset once or twice a year for the past eight years. It is, perhaps, the most magical hotel in the caribbean.

I stayed with my family in mid October which is the low season, so the hotel was empty, which made it more intimate. The room is truly a gorgeous duplex apartment.
