I would first recommend anyone who is traveling to San Juan to take the Cape Air flight to Mayaguez. The drive from San Juan to Ricon is terrible (took us 4 hours) and the Cape Air flight would have been worth the extra money. Horned Dorset (“HD”) is very difficult to find, I would suggest using a GPS to get... More

My husband and I spent two glorious nights at the Horned Dorset Primavera, as an impromptu summer getaway. Yes, the hotel is expensive, but that's just because it offers perfect, luxurious accommodations. Private dipping pool, kitchen, two floors, ocean-front - the works!! I cannot overstate how much I loved my stay at the Horned Dorset. The staff was friendly and... More

We spent a wonderful weekend attending a wedding at the resort. The suites, grounds and the setting were breathtaking. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. We felt exceptionally pampered the entire time that we were there.

How do I even begin to do justice to this little piece of heaven in Puerto Rico. It is one of the most incredible places we have ever found and had the pleasure of staying at!

MY HOTEL REVIEW # 179 Horned Dorset MY TRAVEL STYLE: If possible, I try to stay away from business hotels and strongly prefer resorts that resemble the Four Seasons, Aman, and Oberoi but try to find similar properties at lower cost. I seek out the “wow” experiences and I encourage you to view hotels I have stayed at and their... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel and for the glowing report on the Residence suite you occupied. It is hard for me to understand that your suite was so wonderful and clean and the common areas are not as the same staff look after both. We always take constructive and sensible comments by...

this is a lovely property, but not worth the price- especially with the $120 daily "resort fee" that comes at the end. Upon checking out I noticed that this $120.00 fee was added to my already expensive room rate. While it explained to me that this fee was noted in the "fine print" of my contract, it still feels very... More

Warm welcome approximately 20 minute ride from airport. Plenty of greenery mango trees. Good equipment in exercise room with good size pool in the same location. Plenty of exercise walking the many stairs but this is necessary after such delightful breakfast, lunch, dinners and delicious wines. We walked for hours early mornings along the beach before breakfast. We also met... More

The location was beautiful and our time relaxing during our stay, but for a 5 star hotel and a hefty price we were dissapointed. I would advise against the meal plan. When we booked the trip we were not told that the Aaron, the 5 star restaurant was only open 3 of the 5 nights we stayed there. The food... More
