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!! I cannot overstate how much I loved my stay at the Horned Dorset. The staff was friendly and...

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.

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.

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...
