True meaning of peace and quiet. Chic rooms and great views from throughout. Food was phenomenal. Service top notch. I recommend oceanview room. Only drawback if I had to pick one was that the gym could use some upgrade- outside roof needs a bit of work and the door is a little rough. Watching the sunset was gorgeous- Have a... More

This property can't be compared to anything else on the island and I include the 2-3 "luxury hotels" in the San Juan, Vieques and Bahia Beach areas in saying so. The thing about the Horned Dorset is that it is purposely secluded and everything you expect when it comes to privacy, you get. In choosing where to elope this summer,... More

My boyfriend and I and our two Chihuahuas stayed at Horned Dorset Primavera in Rincon for four nights. We always wanted to stay at this hotel. But, because Rincon is not so easy to get to, we were a little bit hesitant. But, now that Jetblue flies direct to Aguadilla, which is thirty minutes away, we decided to spend part... More

The hotel is private, (somewhat quiet) and romantic. But is in dire need of repair and maintenance/cleaning. Our room had no hot water in the shower, roof leaking in various areas. A lot of the light fixtures did not work. The upstairs air conditioner is extremely loud, to point that I gave up and just used the ceiling fan (even... More

We stayed at the Horned Dorset Primavera during the weekend and visited several restaurants nearby. The hotel accommodations are second to none in Puerto Rico's west coast. The hotel ambient was very impressive: nice beach front suite with private pool, great atmosphere, and very romantic!!! My only issue with this hotel is that Aaron's restaurant was not up to par...

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.
