My wife, 13 year old son and I spent five nights at the Horned Dorset Primavera over Christmas, 2010. Although there are many superlatives that I can associate with that stay, ultimately it failed, because the hotel could not deliver one of the very basics: hot water. More later. But first, let me tell the story Our stay was in...

If we could have afforded to stay here for our month long visit to Rincon, we would have. It is worth a visit just to see this beautiful property, and check it off your list of "1000 Places To See Before You Die".

I can't even believe I have never reviewed my home away from home in Puerto Rico! If you are looking for the perfect mix of luxury and privacy, the Horned Dorset is your hotel. This is not a resort on a Caribean Island... Yes, you can have drinks by the pool, but you will not find yourself in a tacky...

From the second I stepped into the reception office to check in, I was impressed. The service was so good and so friendly. the property was beautiful as were the rooms. Both my husband and I remarked that we'd be happy to live there permanently! We stayed in a primavera suite that had its own private patio with plunge pool....

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...

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!!

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.
