Overview

This secluded property in Rincón features all the trappings of a luxurious resort, from its high-end facilities to its lofty duplex suites, complete with soaking tubs, walk-in jet showers, kitchenettes and private pools. Most visitors have only praise for the hotel's spectacular grounds. When you're ready to stretch your legs, the concierge staff can help you arrange surf lessons or paddleboarding excursions. After exploring the island, sit down for a meal at the Blue Room or retreat to the Restaurant Aaron, which offers al fresco dining. Just note: This resort is a trek from San Juan, so if you're looking to explore El Morro or Mosquito Bay, this location probably isn't right for you. Some recent guests also caution that the resort's seclusion can lead to boredom.

Critic Reviews

Fodor's

READ MORE 

Whitewashed villas scattered throughout the tropical gardens are designed to provide privacy whether you are relaxing in your private plunge pool or admiring the sunset from one of your balconies. The furnishings in each of the two-story suites are impeccable, from the hand-carved mahogany table in the downstairs dining room to the four-poster beds in the upstairs bedroom.

The pool is set in a sunken garden and there is a yoga studio that looks like a rarified treehouse. This is one of Puerto Rico’s most stunning properties, perfect for a romantic getaway.

Nestled between a sliver of tawny beach and a sea wall topped by lush lawns are white stucco archways, red tile roofs, marble floors, polished woods, Persian rugs, and Moroccan ceramics, all assembled with a decorator’s eye. This being the west coast, sunsets are spectacular.

Its whitewashed stucco buildings cascading down a verdant hillside and its central courtyard surrounding a terracotta fountain have a distinctly Mediterranean feel.

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 & Parking

The secluded Horned Dorset Primavera is a 15-minute drive from Rincón, a charming town that hosts a Thursday night art walk and a Sunday farmer’s market. Set on seven acres with a private beach, the Spanish-style villas are spread over the hillside and along the beach. Guests will need a car to explore the area, as there is nothing within walking distance of this boutique resort. Nearby attractions—within a 45-minute drive— include several lighthouses and excellent surfing beaches at Aguadilla. Both major airports are about a 45-minute drive from the resort, although there is small plane service from SJU to the regional airport of Eugenio Maria de Hostos (MAZ), about 20 minutes away. The resort features two main swimming pools, a yoga pavilion, a fitness center, a private beach and a library and game room.
