Picture a wealthy Indian merchant doing business in PR in the 1940's settling his family into a fabulous seaside Villa via their own private railroad siding! That level of elegance is alive today in this hostelry cum restaurant. With hand-painted murals covering the walls of one

The Horned Dorset is an extremely special hotel. My wife and I have stayed there before the storm and after the storm... It is incredible how they made such full rebound and even made improvements.. We dined at the restaurant and enjoy our breathtaking villa with our plunge

We only stayed one night here (thank goodness)! While the grounds are secluded and beautiful, the property is in desperate need of some TLC. Our shower only put out scalding hot water, our private plunge pool was absolutely disgusting (as was the main pool), and the buildings

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts of you short, one night stay.. Like the rest of Puerto Rico after the Hurricane last year we lowered the rates and in the spring and summer and fall of this year and had a great response , hence, of course, attracted some guests not quite suitable for our location and us. We put a lot of pride in the standard of our pools and I had a meeting with our pool cleaning crew ,normally we get great praise for it, as we are one of the few places in the Caribbean with private plunge pools for each suite. I am sorry that you did not have a chance to enjoy the Property and Restaurant to its fullest. Merry Christmas and a "Happy 2019" W Sack

This resort is gorgeous, but I have no idea how it is going to survive. The resort is for sale, it is in bankruptcy, and now some of the units are not occupiable due to the hurricane. If you look at the images on the web, you’ll see some of the units right on the water, balanced

Dear Guest, I had the pleasure of checking you in and enjoyed your Wow expressions upon seeing the amazing suite, yes the suites are beautiful. Tank you for your comments and i am sorry to hear that you did not try our restaurant, for breakfast, lunch or dinner as you found them stuffy and expensive. We, do not allow cooking in our beautiful duplex suites as we have a full food and beverage available including room service for all meals. We have a micro wave oven and a big fridge in our wet bar , kitchen area. to store snacks and refreshments to enjoy at ones private pool on the ocean,. And on the other issues.... here are always lots of rumors flying around.. and people like to gossip... Best wishes and have a wonderful holiday Season.. Wilhelm Sack Horned Dorset Primavera

Is there good surf right here?
No surf, not much of a beach here, either. It's an unsafe, run-down dump. Just don't do it.

To really experience what the area has to offer, you'll want to have a car. Most restaurants and activity off the resort (snorkeling, surfing, SUP, sailing, boating, live music, watching sunsets from the Beach House) will require a car, so going to any of the best beaches of Rincon will also require a car. Most flights arrive in San Juan, which is about a 2.5 hour drive, but there are commuter flights from San Juan to the west side of Puerto Rico.

So proud to read back this reply. Good for you for being so straight forward and truthful. Puerto Rico and everyone did go thru so much in the past year, and for someone to come over and have such unrealistic expectations of recovery is simply not having a heart. We are in process of making a decision of where to stay in Rincon, and your location just might be it, simply on your reply to that unreasonable, unrealistic review.

"There isn't a bad room in the facility"
"Room 9 was our absolute favorite and can easily house 4 people with two full baths and a kitchen. Room 7 and 15 also great choices!"
"Ask for an ocean view, two floor suite if possible. That was the best."
"Rooms with the ocean view are in better condition than the garden view ones."
"We stayed in Room 15"
