Overall good stay

3 other friends and I decided to stay at the hilton in ponce and it was a very good decision. Most people like to travel to San Juan but ponce is a lot less crowded and we wanted to avoid touristy places. Overall the resort was clean, everyone was super nice, and although they only served typical American food it wasn't bad. I do recommend renting a car and exploring the city. There's cheaper places to go eat and the food is actually Puerto Rican unlike at the resort. Other than that the drinks at the resort are pretty cheap and not half bad. Pool area was the best area, and the beach sucked. Rent a car and travel the island, you'll find better beaches then in ponce. If your not a beach lover then this resort is the perfect place for you. Oh and although they say you have to pay some extra fee to use all the amenities it looks like they forgot to charge that for me and I only had to pay for one day parking, front desk guy really hooked us up lol.

Beautiful hotel however not the best location if looking for a beach

The Hilton Ponce was a beautiful hotel. Super comfortable beds, clean rooms with a balcony overlooking the pool. The pool area was great with outdoor beds and oversize chairs to lounge on. No swim up bar though. They also have other activities available (bikes to rent, mini golf, tennis, etc). The major downfall for my husband and I was the beach. It looks beautiful from afar, however it wasn't much of a swimming beach. There was no one swimming in the water the entire time we were there and that's what we came for. The public beach near by (Playa Ponce) was not nice as well. When we got there there was no beach at all due to high tide and the water was mucky. Not the crystal clear Caribbean waters you would expect. Also the city of Ponce seemed to be a bit of a ghost town. So overall great hotel, however in my mind not the best location. If you are looking to lounge by a pool then I would recommend. If you are looking for a beach I would go to Luquillo or Isla Verde.

Great Hotel

We really enjoyed out 12 days at the Hilton Ponce. Staff was very helpful and wonderful pool and golf resort. Was surprised with the resort fee of $20 per day which we did not know about and parking fee of $8 a day. Overall a very nice place to spend the Winter.

Couple getaway

The hotel was great looking and comfortable, very friendly staff, and lots to do on site. My boyfriend and I love to explore new things and we had to drive at least an hour to activities around the island. There is nothing really close by or around the hotel. If you like to just relax at your hotel this would be the perfect place. Overall stay was good but I don't think I would stay at a hotel in Ponce for my entire trip next time.

Romantic and away from the city

The hotel was much more appealing than any other hotel in Ponce. I booked a balcony room with a king bed online when I arrived they gave me a handicapped room because that's all they had. The room was nice, although the air conditioner was terrible. The room stayed hot all night so we had to sleep on top of the covers. The hotel has a good location away from the city.

Vacation

The hotel is well worth the expensive price. My gripe is that the layout of my bathroom did not include a counter for your personal stuff, shaving tooth brush etc. Other than that it is a great hotel

Fun at the pool and casino

Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hotel, the staff was friendly and bilingual (just remember island timethat means no one is in a hurry, EVER) I had clean room, great view, nice pool w plenty of areas to tan or read, great drinks at the bars (just wish they stayed open later then 2am). I also enjoyed the casino small but fun for the occasional gambler. I was disappointed by the food quality at the restuarants, I don't mind paying for a good meal but I suggest everyone go outside of the hotel for dinner. Found great local cusine near the city center and great late night eats at the boardwalk just down the road.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

I suggest purchasing the room package that includes several meals. Food at the hotel is expensive and avaerage quality, $19 per person for breakfast! We went to a local grocery and purchased some waters and sodas to save. Also head over to the boardwalk during weekend, I fed 5 adults and had alcoholic drinks for $60.

business and holiday

The Hotel is beautiful. I would have better signage leading to the Hotel from the highway as we can in at night. The beach could use a bit of cleaning. The view of the Ocean was fantastic,we were up on the 5th floor of the executive tower last unit. Could not have been better. When heading to the Islands, be prepared to relax, the staff was friendly but not not as attentive as what you would experience in a lager city or a cruse ship.. I will return to this Hotel again.
