My husband and I spent three nights at the Horned Dorset for the first part of our honeymoon. We cannot stress enough how much we love and miss the Horned Dorset.
ROOM: We stayed in a two story villa with a private wading pool outisde. We anticipated having no internet, television, etc. and, to be honest, we would not have used it had it existed. This villa was spacious and beautifully adorned (and the bed was super comfortable). The bathroom was beautiful, with a spacious tub and separate shower.
POOLS: Although there was more than one pool, we spent our time at the pool that fed into the ocean (infinity pool). It was always clean, had a gorgeous view of the ocean, and made for fantastic pictures. Towels were always provided, as were bottles of water in a cooler.
BEACH: We can't comment so much on the beach, as we honestly spent zero time on the beach. This is not because it was not beautiful, it was simply because we had such a relaxing time reading by the pool that we never had the chance to explore the ocean.
FOOD: We ate both breakfast and lunch outside overlooking the beach. We are foodies, and we would have left the resort if we felt the need. Needless to say, we didn't. The options were plentiful, the service was great, and we especially recommend the mofongo for lunch. We ate each night at the restaurant at the hotel. We were pleased but not enthralled the first night, and we thought it might be because we were staying during the "off season." But our final two meals were fantastic - attentive service and delicious food.
SERVICE: Service at the Horned Dorset was top notch. The owner honestly met us outside the hotel because we were having trouble finding the entrance. Everybody was incredibly welcoming and wanted to enhance your experience. We spent the second two nights on the veranda playing chess with our excellent bartender waiting on us. Additionally (and this might not fall under "service"), there are two awesome "house dogs" which make the experience even more intimate.
ALL IN ALL: We spent six nights at the Ritz in San Juan following our nights at the Horned Dorset. While the remainder of the honeymoon was amazing, we could not stop talking about the Horned Dorset. We have every intention of returning there upon an anniversary. Thank you Horned Dorset, for making our honeymoon sublime.
