Guestbook comments from the owner

I highly recommend booking with Gabriella! The stay was a bliss, the villa is gorgeous, territory around the villa is great, and a very nice beach to swim. Gabriella is the best host I've ever met. She made sure guests feel comfortable every step of the journey, introduces to the best places and people in Rincon, and we had great fun going out to Pool bar. If you book with Gabriella I'm sure you will enjoy it as the best journey of your life and you will be taken care of every minute of your stay. Thank you, Gabriella, for incredible experience and hospitality

Amazing Stay! Classy and Elegant Villa

  • 5 of 5

Without going into too much detail, we will just say if you are even considering Rincon PR as your travel destination (and you should) don't hesitate to book this villa if its available. Gabriella, the owner and basically your concierge, made this easy, fun, and stress free. She was attentive, friendly, and most of all connected to the area and super knowledgable. She had pastries and fresh fruit ready for arrival, set up massage appointments, and recommended restaurants and the best beaches (if this sounds too intrusive, it wasn't, she was just available when needed)

The place itself was gorgeous, clean, and was facing the ocean perched on a hill with the most beautiful view. And the bed, oh wow, you won't want to even want to leave it was so comfortable. The villas at Horned Dorset are separate from the hotel, but all the amenities are available to you, a great private beach, two pools, bar & restaurant and beautiful grounds (very old world Spanish feel).

Overall, an amazing stay and a no-brainier. Perfect for those who want a classy, quiet, vacation and a luxurious trip.

50th Birthday

This was one of the most amazing vacations we have ever had. Gabriella was THE best hostess. We corresponded with her weeks before our arrival and she made sure we had everything we needed (and more). She had all the best recommendations for dinners and sightseeing. The villa itself was gorgeous. Beautiful views in every direction. We spent all of our time in Rincon and coming back to the quiet villa every night was the best part. The nighttime dips in the plunge pool are unforgettable. If you are thinking of coming to Rincon for a romantic getaway, look no further. This is the place. We are already planning our trip for next year. Thank you Gabriella for your generous hospitality!

This was one of the most wonderful vacations EVER!! My husband and I had been talking to Gabriella for many weeks before our arrival and she absolutely covered every need we had and even some that we had not thought about. She was the best hostesses you could ever imagine. I would describe her and the entire experience as very reputable. She followed through with every request we had and was always available for any questions we had. She recommended restaurants and places to go. I felt like we had a personal travel guide.

The villa was impeccable - very tasteful and very well equipped with everything we needed. The views are beautiful and we had access to all of the amenities that the Horned Dorset offered. Do not hesitate to visit Rincon and stay at Gabriella's villa. You will not be disappointed!!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 14 days in March at the Horned Dorset and it was among the most amazing 2 weeks of our lives! The Horned Dorset is 5 star, plus. From the tropical grounds to the first class Villa, especially # 46 and the most amazing hostess, we were living beyond our dreams. Gabriella was our personal tour guide. She attended to our every need, even before we knew what we needed. Her fantastic personality and the warmth of her spirit captured our hearts. There is no hostess like Gabby! We seriously are planning our next trip to Rincon and the Horned Dorset. Thank you Gabriella for your generous hospitality! Love always.

Incredible Experience

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible experience! We are not sure what we enjoyed more - the amazing ocean views, very elegant yet comfortable suite, or the personable Gabriella that took such care to make our stay so special and memorable. Seriously incredible. We came to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary and this was the perfect romantic getaway. We spent most of our time at our place just relaxing and enjoying the sun with our own secluded dipping pool and at the shared yet quiet infinity pool. We ventured out mostly for dinner and Gabriella provided us with all the local knowledge to go to just the right places, with her notes before we arrived and her always prompt text replies. We are grateful for our experience. We found a gem at this place and in Gabriella. Dreaming about coming back!

Unbelivably wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 10 days at this amazing place in Puerto Rico during our kids spring break and to be perfectly honest we can't wait to go back.

We love to travel and have been to many different fine hotels around the world and I'm very happy to say, that this was one of the most beautiful places we've ever stayed - the grounds and the villa are a little piece of paradise, but Gabriela, the host, is above and beyond. From the moment we arrived and throughout the entire stay, she was very attentive to everything. For example, we thought it was so sweet that upon our arrival Gabby welcomed us with the warm/delicious sandwiches, knowing we'd be hungry after a long drive. She then drove us to the local supermarket to get some groceries for the next day. It's so nice to go somewhere and know you'll always be steered in the right direction: best fish, best beaches, day trips, surf instructors, etc. Gabby goes above and beyond to make sure that you're happy. We loved that villa had a small kitchen, to make breakfasts and simple lunches (a necessity when you're traveling with kids). For dinners there are plenty of great places to eat in Rincon (appros-pos, we highly recommend beach-side fish place, the fish-taco place, and the Spanish restaurant ... Gabby will tell you where to go). Our kids just had a blast in plunge pool and the infinity pool, when not surfing or snorkling.

During our stay we celebrated our wedding anniversary. That day Gabby surprised us with balloons and most delicious cake, we were absolutely stunned. I Can't say enough good things about Gabriella. The place is beautiful, food was great, my boys tell me the surfing was awesome, but Gabby made the trip truly special.

Thank you Gabby once again for unforgettable vacation! We'll be back!
