Classic elegance at a neo-colonial beachfront hotel surrounded by lush gardens.
Set on rolling hills with cascades of bougainvillea and hibiscus, The Horned Dorset Primavera provides several settings in which to relax and luxuriate. Rooms décor displays a contrast between dark wooden furniture and airy, open space, with distinctive design elements such as veiled four-poster beds, Moorish arch doorways and intricate lighting fixtures. Guests enjoy private swimming pools and easy access to the beach; there are several other public beaches in Rincon, as well, with waves suitable for surfing, whale watching, boat trips and aquatic sports. Gourmet cuisine is the highlight at Restaurant Aaron, with Table d'Hôte and Chef's Grand Tasting menus; lighter fare is provided in The Blue Room. For relaxation, borrow a book from the charming library or take a stroll on the hotel grounds. Nearby activities include a golf course on the old Ramey Air Force Base, an favorite of Dwight D. Eisenhower, casinos and horseback riding along the beach. All rooms are air-conditioned and dogs are accepted.
