We stayed four nights in a two-story suite at the Horned Dorset Primavera in mid-March, 2010. The experience was heavenly. This is a very sophisticated, very upscale, not inexpensive getaway. Although children are welcome, it is likely not the type of place that would appeal to families with youngsters. One of my favorite aspects was a welcome letter advising that...

We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and felt compelled to add our experience. Overall we found it to an excellent resort. We found the rooms to be very comfortable in space and appointment. We found the dinning [both casual and semi-formal] to be outstanding in experience and good from a cuisine POV. Great wine list and you have to...

My husband and I spent a few days here over Valentine's weekend. We really thought it was a beautiful and relaxing place to stay. The suite was gorgeous , we stayed in the Horned Dorset residences , probably one of the most beautiful rooms I've stayed in , and I've stayed in a LOT of 5 star hotels. I would...

Over the past 20+ years I have been fortunate to enjoy the luxury that a vacation in a Wilhelm Sack managed hotel bestows upon guests. This past November I went to The Horned Dorset Primavera by myself over a 5-day Thanksgiving holiday. Normally, when traveling alone I venture to Europe or to locations where sight-seeing is a priority. But this...

Very few times does anything surpass your expectations, but this hotel does just that. From the moment we walked through it's big dark wooden gates, we stepped into Shangri-la. It is heaven on earth. Tranquil, private, luxurious and all with taste. There are no TV or radios and phones are hidden away. It's a place to relax, recharge and leave...

My wife and I just came back from staying at the Horned Dorset and we find that words cannot give justice to the wonderful experience we had. We stayed for four nights and, being off-season for the resort, we received an amazingly low rate for a villa (compared to their seasonal rates). On top of this, on arrival we were...

We went to Horned Dorset in August. We had been eyeing the hotel - touted as one of best in Caribbean - and thought the August rates were a great opportunity. There were very few other people there, which was certainly not the hotel's fault. But, how funny that given the few number of visitors, I felt totally disregarded. The...

This place was exactly what we needed. Rented two suites for myself and family and could not be happier. It is beautiful, the place tranquil and the staff INCREDIBLE. We were only there for two days, and only tried the restaurant for breakfast, so worth it. I cannot wait to come back. It was such an incredibly wonderful place to...

My husband and I travelled to the Horned Dorset as part of a 9 day trip to Puerto Rico. We stayed for 2 nights. Once we arrived, we were upgraded to a Residence from a seaside Primavera Suite, as the resort was pretty empty(it was in the off-season). The Residence was gorgeously appointed. We had TV and internet and a...

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".
