Fodor's Review

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 marble bathroom has a footed porcelain tub that's big enough for two. (There's a second bath downstairs that's perfect for rinsing off after a walk on the beach.) The villas have furnishings imported from Marrakesh. If you so desire, breakfast can be served in your room. With a terrace overlooking the ocean, the restaurant is among the island's most elegant. A place to unplug from the rest of the world, the hotel limits radios and televisions and does not allow children younger than 12 except with prior approval.

A World-Class Hideaway

We first visited this heavenly hostelry 20 years ago when we reviewed it for the San Juan Star newspaper and gave it highest marks. When we were there in March 2009 we found it expanded to include hillside villas but the original atmosphere of tranquility and elegance has not been lost. In fact, under the watchful eyes of the original proprietors the HDP has been burnished to a glow that could compete successfully with any similar establishment

on the Cote d’Azur. Fodor’s assessment is right on point except for its reference to "haughty" employees. We found this to be utterly untrue; the staff, from top to bottom, is exemplary. If you want to treat yourself handsomely, spend some time here!
