The Horned Dorset in Puerto Rico is a beautiful place but the management has NO CONCERN for guests. We made a reservation for two nights looking forward to a relaxing weekend with no driving. What they did not tell us when we made the reservation was that they had closed the restaurant for renovation. Part of the charm of the... More

My wife and I have traveled to a number of great resorts in the Caribbean and Central America. I have never written a review, but feel compelled to do so as this place has clearly changed from what it had been. As far as the suite and the scenery, the Horned Dorset is as nice as any other hotel i... More

I was at the Horned Dorset Primavera on 3/7/15 to have drink and maybe a meal. We where told that it is "off season" and that the restaurant and bar is closed. All their literature never mentions that this is their off season. What we saw was a hotel that looked tired. I cannot see why they command such a... More

My wife and I escaped to Rincon for a long weekend this past week. While we did not stay at the Inn this time, we had an amazing dinner, and came back for breakfast the next morning. It was fabulous in every way. So good that I immediately booked my wife's birthday party for next December there. I can't wait... More

There are great views from here. The grounds are very nice. We were not happy with dinner here though. Despite speaking with the manager ahead of time, & with the chef prior to dinner, they had nothing more for dessert for our fixed price dinner other than fruits, saying they ran out of things. For a high end restaurant, I... More

I stayed at the Horned Dorset for a few nights in January 2015. I have to say that I've been fortunate enough to stay in some very nice resorts and the Horned Dorset is right up there. The rooms are very special with beautiful decor. Thank u to Mr. Davies for being so accommodating and Alejandro for being so attentive... More

We were excited to visit the Horned Dorset and, indeed, the location is beautiful. But the hotel is tired and shabby, the grounds are not well kept and the management was harried and rude. We have visited many Relais & Chateaux properties and this does not come near meeting the typical standard. It could be a wonderful place again, but... More

My wife and I enjoyed this hotel a lot. It is just a little bit outside rincon and right on the beach. Yes food could be better but then again it's Puerto Rico and things are more relaxed. The tropical feeling is unbeatable in rincon. You want to come here to relax!

I have stayed at this hotel several times throughout the years and I think this has been the most memorable stay of them all. Service and quality comes at a price, so first pay extra for the suites 15 or 16; totally worth it. The views are stunning and you are close to the pool and gym. Room service was... More

This place has only two things going for it: its great employees and its location (view). Sorry but you don't get what you pay for. Maybe at the beginning when it started out it was great but know its really poorly cared for. Stayed at #23 and the roof was leaking a lot, had a couple of puddles, it had... More
