My husband and I visited the Horned Dorset Primavera for the second time last spring, and were once again made to feel like "secret celebrities". The hotel has just finished an upgrade of some rooms, and the one in which we were fortunate enough to stay for 3 nights can best be described as Arabian Nights on the Caribbean. It... More

I'm a middle age woman, who was searching for a quiet, private, relaxing and secure hotel or resort.. My experience was superb. I got all I was looking for, and more. A huge two levels suite, a private small pool, an absolute quietness so relaxing that the only sounds I've heard were from nature.. Tip: Food is great but really... More

I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of these reviews but came away absolutely loving this place! Having stayed at Jade Mountain (which was physically stunning) a few months prior, we actually liked the Horned Dorset better and can see returning here again and again. It has an elegant, relaxed ease that's very hard to find these days (the... More

My husband and I spent the first three nights of our honeymoon at The Horned Dorset. Well, we booked only two nights initially but once Hector had us settled, we said almost simultaneously, "We're staying an extra night, right?" Not only did they upgrade us to a sea view (on a cliff to boot) for our honeymoon, but they had... More

My girlfriend and I wanted a vacation where we could get away from it all and yet be treated with first class service -- the Horned Dorset delivered both counts! The hotel occupies a quiet, private beach near the small town of Rincon. Each suite is large and designed to produce as much privacy as possible. On many occasions, we... More

I'm going to try to write this with just the facts I encountered, but I must admit, this just wasn't my (and hubby's) type of place. We do high-end here and there, but this wasn't special enough for us to pay $350+++++++++/night. We stayed 3 nights in a garden view suite. Two-story suite was beautifully decorated in the mediterranean style... More

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon after spending a weekend in Old San Juan. We stayed for four nights in one of the Horned Dorset Residences right on the beach. Let me start with the good and move towards the disappointing. Our residence was very large and, to my tastes anyhow, was very well furnished. We had... More

We just returned from our vacation. My husband is a native of Puerto Rico and I have been there many times.

The drive from San Juan was painful. As we approached the hotel, I thought we must be in the wrong place. We passed piles of trash along the side of the road, complete with an old appliance. Entrance was not impressive. There were dogs running loose. I had to ask for someone to help with the luggage. The grounds were... More

Just returned from a weekend at the Horned Dorset to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It's a perfect getaway, and oh so romantic! Stayed at the Cliffside Suites, ours was a Partial View (# 49) - 2 story villa, 2 marble bathrooms, plunge pool, day bed, balconies, and a 4 poster canopy bed that was heavenly.
