Summary


Pros

  • Directly on a tranquil, empty beach
  • Posh Spanish-Colonial-style decor
  • Private pools with each room
  • Romantic canopy beds with pillow-top mattresses and Frette sheets
  • Three outdoor communal pools, including an ocean-view infinity-edge pool
  • Remote area, far from the bustle of San Juan
  • Excellent cuisine at the casual Blue Room
  • Free morning newspapers and free bottled water

Cons

  • Incredibly steep resort fee
  • Nothing within walking distance
  • Some facilities lacking "wow" factor, considering high price tag
  • No TVs in some rooms (a pro for some)
  • Beach is a bit narrow

Bottom Line

The 39-room Horned Dorset Primavera feels romantic and exclusive, with a remote location in Rincon and white buildings dotting the lush eight-acre grounds. The suites are adorned with Spanish-Colonial-style decor -- dark wood canopy beds draped with sheer white fabric, lots of marble, big freestanding soaking tubs, and exotic Moroccan touches, like intricate glass-and-bronze light fixtures. Luxurious extras include kitchenettes with stainless steel appliances, decks, and private plunge pools. But there's nothing within walking distance of the property, and some of the facilities are underwhelming for the price -- including the small gym and narrow (though tranquil) beach.

Location

Remote locale with almost nothing within walking distance, but downtown Rincon is a 15-minute drive away

Map of Horned Dorset Primavera

Although nothing (except more beaches) is within walking distance from the hotel, a 15-minute drive will get you to Rincon, a bohemian, laid-back town on the west coast of the country.

Aside from water sports, nearby attractions include the several beautiful lighthouses, like Rincon El Faro lighthouse and Punta Higuero lighthouse; the cute shops and restaurants in the town center; and nearby Aguadilla, with great surfing beaches and a shopping mall.

  • 40-minute drive to the Rafael Hernandez Airport
  • 15-minute drive to downtown Rincon
  • 20-minute drive to the Rincon El Faro lighthouse
  • 30-minute drive to Aguadilla
