I can't say enough good things about this place. Luxurious, gorgeous, breathtaking! We loved every minute, barely left the room. Beach is in front, private pool in all the two-story villas. Rincón is one of the most beautiful places in PR, and after visiting several resorts in the area, I can say this is definitely the best one. Especially if... More

This place is fantastic, the type of place movie stars stay (and one was while we were there). Only 17 rooms and very private and peaceful. The attention to detail in the rooms will keep you busy enjoying the architecture and furniture for hours. All of it imported, most hand made from Morocco and Thailand. Most rooms have their own...

This hotel is enchanting in every way. The property is right in the water with a private beach, with only 17 rooms. The views from most rooms is amazing. The Mediterranean architecture and feel is very authentic, and the attention to detail will keep you discovering little gems, like the sea shells used on the bed post ties, the hand... More

We love experiences where the hotel is not your typical cookie cutter hotel due to the fact I travel on business 150 nights a year. Horned Dorset Is just that. Sure it needs to be renovated, cleaned up on the outside but once you arrive at your villa, you become totally emerged in it. You have your own terrace with... More

The reason for 3 stars is the location and beauty but you have to overlook an awful lot. The rooms are beautiful, with exquisite woodwork, chandeliers and shower, and bed. But the entire property needs TLC. They are understaffed and it shows. Plainly stated - it's not being maintained, including not doing anything regarding mosquitoes. They have a lot of... More
